Adam Mowery is a professional adventure photographer that has been featured in the Boy Scouts of America, Backpacker Magazine, and the National Parks Conservation Association, among others. He is offering the choice of one of two prints — the stunning desert scene pictured here, or the night-sky above. The print will be printed on Kodak ENDURA Metallic paper that provides exceptional visual interest and depth to the image.

Mountain Khakis Outerwear


Mountain Khakis makes some of the toughest, most versatile outerwear in the outdoor industry. They have a huge range of styles, fabrics, and use-cases for adventurers of all kind. You get a chance to win a $150 gift card, which means you can pick whatever suits your fancy! We’re fond of their jackets, like the Mountain Trucker Jacket above, and of their khakis, which travel exceedingly well.

LifeSaver Liberty Starter Pack


LifeSaver is known for its advanced water purification, which removes 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, and cysts from water. The company packs this punch into a usable water bottle, allowing you to carry one device to purify and consume on the go. The Starter Pack includes a Scavenger hose for shallow water sources, three extra Carbon Discs for continued use, and a protective silicon sleeve. The filter is good for 2,000 liters, and it’ll make almost any drinking water you encounter in nature safe!

Solo New York Grand Travel TSA Backpacksolo ny grand travel tsa

The Solo New York Grand Travel TSA Backpack is built for the urban hiker and adventure traveler who’s on the move. Specifically made for checkpoint friendliness, the 30+ liter backpack has easy to access compartments for a laptop, water bottle, passport, and straps to hold your clothes or gear down easily. It has multiple durable handles for easy carrying, and fits in overhead compartments. Sleek and minimal, yet with all the right features, this backpack will work for most weekend trips.

Solo New York Highline Duffel

The Solo New York Highline Duffel is a stylish, classy duffel without wheels. It has zippered exterior compartments for easy storage and quick access for at-hand items, and a large main compartment for clothing. There’s a fully padded 15″ laptop compartment too! Great for those longer trips abroad.

Chico Bag Travel Pack

Chico Bag is all about the bags, in case you didn’t know. This Travel Pack is a fully functional (though minimal) backpack that stuffs into a tiny carrying case. Excellent to have as a backup pack, as a grocery bag, or as a summit bag while camping and backpacking. It’s got a main chute and simple exterior zipper access, and an included carabiner for easy carrying.

Chico Bag Sling rePETe

Another small bag from Chico, the Sling rePETe is a small grocery-style bag that can be slung (of course) over the shoulder. Excellent for carrying books, farmer’s market hauls, and for casual walks around any city. The “PET” in the name means the fabric is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic battles, which is awesome. Stuffs into itself too!

Chico Bag Travel Zip

Chico Bag’s final inclusion in this giveaway is the Travel Zip 3-pack. This is three small-ish zippered pouches, which allow you to keep small items organized while traveling. Toiletries, snacks, pens — you name it, you can store it. The multiple sizes are great for separating items into different categories.

To Go Ware 2 Tier Stainless Steel Food Carrier

To Go Ware is all about eating on the go, and this 2 tier stainless steel food carrier is a flagship product. It’s essentially a lunchbox, but the lid doubles as a plate, it’s easy to clean, and you can store both cold or hot food in it. It’s made from 200, 14/1 grade stainless steel, and can haul a full day’s meal or break down into a more basic to-go container.

To Go Ware RePEaT Utensil Set

To Go Ware’s final product in the giveaway is this simple, awesome bamboo cutlery pack. Beyond the elegant cutlery that will get you through any meal, they come with a recycled PET plastic case that stores everything nicely.
