Outdoor Research Airpurge Compression Sack

Outdoor Research Airpurge Compression Sack

This Out­door Research com­pres­sion sack solves the age-old prob­lem of keep­ing your down sleep­ing bag dry in a rain­storm. You can leave those garbage bags at home from now on because the Hydroseal coat­ed nylon on this stuff sack is extreme­ly water­proof and durable. The ful­ly taped seams and roll-top clo­sure seals the deal, enough so that it’s submersible.

The most impres­sive part is the air per­me­able water­proof fab­ric that purges air dur­ing com­pres­sion. An instruc­tion­al video with an OR Rep shows how this inno­v­a­tive fab­ric holds water back with­out a leak but allows air to pass through. It’s impres­sive tech­nol­o­gy that allows you to com­press your bag to fit into your pack and trek into the wild with­out fret­ting about the impend­ing rain in the forecast.

Kitesurf­ing Teahupo’o: Did you know?

On Sep­tem­ber 14th (that’s today!), 2006, pro­fes­sion­al kitesurfers Jere­mie Eloy, Julien Sudrat, and Yan­nick Salmon gath­ered at the surf break known as Teahupo’o on the French Poly­ne­sian island of Tahi­ti. Teahupo’o loose­ly trans­lates to mean, “to sev­er the head,” and fit­ting­ly, the break pro­duces a dan­ger­ous, hol­low wave that ranges from 10–70ft. What makes the wave so dan­ger­ous is that it crash­es over a coral reef that is only 20 inch­es beneath the sur­face, pro­duc­ing a dense wave that is con­sid­ered the “heav­i­est wave” in the world. On this day the waves were in the 10ft. range and as thick at the lip as they were tall. The three kite­board­ers rode the wave to become the first kite­board­ers to ever surf Teahupo’o.
