Wrap your little one in an adorable, organic cotton blanket for kids.
Infused with personality and handcrafted by women in India for fair wages, these soft designs are more of a colorful companion than a blanket.
Stitched on each hood is an animal-themed and explorer-inspired character—like Marco the Panda. Kids can fold the blanket into itself to create a pillow after a long day of exploring.
Maker Sarah Lin’s commitment to doing things right shines through in her mission and design. She spent two years scouting fair-traded textiles and partners who had a like-minded commitment to creating sustainable jobs.
So you can envelope your kid in a world of warm adventure—and support a good cause while you’re at it.
In this video you will learn to attach the hood to transform the kachula into a poncho, a pillow, or snap them together.

After backpacking and camping for over 40 years of my life, I wondered if technology had produced a better, lighter air mattress than my long used Thermarest. It has. I comes from a company called “Nemo” and the model is the Cosmo 30XL or 25XL, depending on your size requirement. The Cosmo does indeed provide comfort disproportionate to its size. It’s ony 2 lbs 2 oz in the 30XL version and travels in the size of a bread loaf. I has Primaloft insulation as well and gives 4” of sleep comfort and insulation from the ground. Side sleepers, like me, rejoice. Horizontal baffling prevent the mattress from wrapping around you. This version comes in the cool orange color. I studied several other options before buying this in Amazon, but they were much more expensive and don’t deliver any more quality than the Nemo Cosmo air mattress. Comes with stuff sack, repair kit, Velcro strap, and a hang tag that will make you feel smart for buying it. Highly recommended.

Coalatree products have been sold nationwide by big box retailers like Urban Outfitters and large online retailers like Backcountry.com. After trying the traditional brick & mortar retail model Coalatree decided to pivot the business online to reach a larger audience. This led us to bring our newest product to Kickstarter.
Trying to decide what pack to buy for your upcoming trip? Here are some ideas of lightweight backpacking bags of varying styles and sizes ranging from 19 liters to 46 liters. Many backpackers end up traveling with 60 liters on their back and quickly regret the weight, extra luggage, and added stress it adds to their journey.
Check out some of these options and get an idea for what's out there and what may or may not work for you.
