East Mountain Sports
This Sunday, we went to a vegan food festival in new york city. I had reviewed the festival HERE on the food blog. The event was called The Seed. The event was at the new york city’s most amazing shopping district called SOHO. After the event we went to a sports brand called East Mountain Sports. Abhishek is a huge fan of this brand. He had so many stories to tell of the products of this brand that he used during trekking or hiking. I had always seen the showroom from the outside but never had the chance to visit. From outside it looked like a superb clothes and shoes sports brand. But I was so wrong. This brand is like a paradise for anyone who loves outdoors.
There were so many little, travel friendly, useful products that I cannot not even think of getting anywhere normally. Actually from our past camping and trekking experiences, we realized that there are so many things that we need to carry to become seasoned outdoor(ers). We have done a very accessible outdoors till now. As in, we were close to the city or had people and amenities around. The max we got stuck was once when we lost directions in the forest in some village area of upstate new york. But it was a very small wandering and soon we were out into the city.
Now we are planning to go proper hiking with just nature around us. No restaurants to get our food packed or shops to buy water bottles or hotels to spend the night.
With this intent in minds, we went to the outdoor section of Eastern Mountain Sports. Boy! I went berserk. Such an amazing range of innovative products they have. We did not get anything as of now. As we thought that we will plan the whole activity and then get stuff accordingly.
I clicked picture of few products that I really liked
These plastic rings can be converted into big bowls
On the hikes, when you have natural running water as your only savior then you could use this pump to filter the water
Wear these helmets, aim the rope and start climbing the mountain
A little inflated towel to a big soft pillow.
For some cooking under the sky
Shoes with a grip to climb the mountains
Get inside this bed
This was like a very tiny miny bag. Which can become a big bath bucket in times of need
From ring to a mug. So innovative and useful!
Very petite and squeezed food bags.. from omelette to pasta you name it. They had it
Carry water in this bag from some river. And drink it, clean and filtered.
Tiniest stove ever
That much I observed. I am tempted to go back soon and check out some more products. Aren’t they amazing?
Loads of Love
