The Whole Marmot Lot

Posted on

Hey, Camp Fanatics!

Today’s Blog post shines its spotlight on another brand that’s a new addition to our camping gear collection here at Everything Summer Camp. We’re thrilled to now be able to say we offer Marmot. A great brand to give you the comfort you want for a night under the stars, learn a good deal on the story behind the brand name right here.

Students of the University of California Santa Cruz, Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley, were on a school Glaciology project when Marmot Club was first suggested. Marmots are highly social ground squirrels that live in the mountainous regions of the world and they adopted this name with the rule that in order to become a Marmot one had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot.

That summer and for the next two years, Eric and Dave started making prototypes of down products in their dorm room. These two original Marmots joined forces after an ascensions of the Grand Teton with one Tomb Boyce of Grand Junction, Colorado.

Together, the three opened a rental and retail shop under the name of Marmot Mountain Works. The company was launched into high demand when 20th Century Fox requested 108 puffy jackets for a Clint Eastwood flick.

After their Hollywood premiere, Marmot saw further fortune with a ground floor introduction to the new concept of Gore-Tex. Always growing, but never outgrowing their quality, become a Marmot yourself with the latest from this trailblazing brand.

Hey, Brushers!

Maintaining your pearly whites is important stuff! Not only do we feel our best when our smile is its whitest, but dental hygiene has been linked to well-being in areas beyond your chompers, such as heart-health. A domestic habit like brushing your teeth can be difficult to keep up with when you’re away from home, so we always aim to carry products that make brushing throughout our travels as convenient as can be. So, who just popped onto the scene?

It’s Pop-Sonic!

Who’s Pop-Sonic, you ask? Only the creators of the bright, colorful line of top-quality sonic toothbrushes such as the hugely popular Go Sonic travel toothbrush available in a plethora of colors and designs right here at Everything Summer Camp!

Some seriously poppy folks, they couldn’t help themselves but to add some serious POP to your brushing routine with their Go Sonic Toothbrush! For that clean and fresh dental feel, nothing gets the job done quite like this battery-operated toothbrush besides maybe the dentist.

Have your preference between two different vibrating speeds. This brush is smartly programmed to pace your time spent on different areas of your mouth and counts off a two-minute brushing session. The handle is slim, streamlined, and lightweight to make it comfortably handheld!

Simply pop the top cap off and unscrew the bottom where you'll find the port to load the single AAA battery required for this brush's 30,000 brushstrokes-a-minute capability. And the motor on this baby has been designed for an efficient use of energy and long battery life. The compact case is cool, colorful, and makes travel extra convenient!

Built to last, Pop-Sonic never finishes their product design without an intensive testing so they can be sure they’re providing only the highest quality. Get a look at the Go Sonic Toothbrush by clicking here and don’t forget to brush your teeth! As always, thanks for reading.

Power of the Right Light

Posted on

Hey, Empowered People!

Essential to every camper’s packing list, light is an important part of every overnight camper’s summer camp experience. We always want to offer the best of the best in child-friendly camping gear products and so we’re proud to offer the powerful light resources from a leading brand in quality lighting gear! MPOWERD is the relatively new brand name on the lighting scene. Check them out!

MPOWERD masterfully combines brilliant quality with a design that’s easy for kids to use. On top of that, they’re conscious of the impact they have on the environment! Always fans of sustainable methods, we knew MPOWERD was an obvious fit for our collection of flashlights and other lighting sources in our camping gear selection.

A brand name that begs the question, ‘Where’d they get that name from?’ They get that a lot. It breaks down like this: M-POWER-D and it stands for Micro Power Design. In a way, this name is a brief mission statement and description of their company goals.

‘Micro,’ because their products are meant to be simple in their portability. ‘Power’ in reference to their environmentally friendly technology. And ‘Design’ since their creations are products of form along with their function. AND, when combined, the name bears a close resemblance that describe the core values that MPOWERD was built upon: making folks feel empowered.

This brand name saw its start in 2012. That was the year when MPOWERD’s principal inventor Jason Alan Snyder created Luci, the first inflatable solar light. Since then, they’ve moved forward and mastered their craft, engineering solar powered products that can retain charge for incredible lengths!

Our excellent selection in summer camp gear is made up of great brand names you may be familiar with such as Kelty, Crazy Creek, and ENO. And we love featuring these brands here on the Blog to give our customers some idea of what these other companies are like.

Recently added to the lengthy list of great brands we carry, we are now proud to offer superior products from the name Helinox. A leading name in portable camping furniture and accessories, Helinox has comfortable camping chairs available on the Everything Summer Camp store online.

For a long time, tent makers across the world went to one company for innovations and new techniques in the production of high-strength and lightweight alloy poles. That company: Dongah Aluminum Corporation—known to those they worked with as DAC.

DAC has spent years upon years the strongest and lightest tubing around. Eventually (about a decade ago in the year 2010), these processes resulted in the founding of a new company within the DAC company and the brand name Helinox was born. In the short time that this company has been around, they’ve already proven their products by winning award after award in competitions from institutions such as Red Dot Design, ISPO, as well as Outdoor Industry.

With a line of durable camping chairs, tables, cots, and other accessories, Helinox offers durable comfort and optimal performance for adventurers of all kinds. Get a look at the pair of chairs available here at Everything Summer Camp, the Helinox Chair One as well as the Helinox Chair One Mini.
