Sweet Intergalactic Drysuit – Out Soon

I’m very fortunate to be in the position of getting hold of new kit well before it is released. This now includes the Intergalactic dry suit from Norwegian company Sweet Protection.

Sweet have been in the whitewater game for years but the Intergalactic marks their first and long awaited move into the dry suit arena. The Intergalactic is built from Gore-Tex Pro material and is backed onto a fabric that is both supple and tough.

Peak Design Ltd POV Camera Mount

Peak Design are a US based company who design innovative camera accessories. The one that has caught my eye is the Camera Capture Clip with the POV kit.

Peak Design Ltd POV Camera Mount

From Peak Design:

Need to turn any backpack strap, belt or strap-like object into a mount for a GoPro® or any P.O.V. video device. Shoot video in ways you’ve never imagined with these durable and ultra-versatile products. Buy Capture and P.O.V. Kit together and save $5 off retail prices when purchased separately.

What you essentially have is a quick release system that allows you to attach your GoPro to belts and straps. I’m thinking it could be a great addition to my GoPro mount kit as it will allow me to securely fasten the GoPro to the shoulder strap of my PFD.

I have a set on order and expect it very shortly.
