If you think YOU’RE rough and tough – then check out THIS stuff!
Here are a few products we’ve pulled together for your mission-critical lifestyle:
Whether you’re on a package tour or a tour of duty, these tough cases from the Hardigg Storm series are equally at home on a Disney cruise as they are at a picnic in Afghanistan. Frequently used to transport armaments and rocket launchers, they pack a punch AND lunch – and then some! And with their wide range of custom-cut foam inserts, you could probably transport eggs as easily as nitroglycerine without breaking a sweat.
If all you want is a rugged iPad case to protect your tablet from a horde of Plants vs Zombies at a childrens’ garden party, then look no farther than this rugged iPad case from Freitag. They make a variety of bags from recycled truck tarpaulins. Now you can preserve the environment AND look like a cool video game designer at the same time.
Also, check out their MacBook Air case. It looks like a giant yellow envelope but can easily withstand a stampede at the Palio. Also, this carry-case.
And if your summer cruise turns into the Poseidon Adventure, you can take all of your electronics equipment for a swim without worrying about it. Check out these waterproof bags from Overboard. Now there’s a way to preserve your documents in the event that they all go overboard. You might even use them as a lifesaver!
Waterproof Cameras and Waterproof/Fireproof/Crushproof Hard Drives
Did you forget it was Monsoon season? No worries. You can still take snaps with a waterproof camera. Then, when there’s a break in the clouds, back up all those precious memories to these waterproof hard drives from A-Data and Silicon Armor.
If you think you’re more likely to get caught in a forest fire, than an avalanche – cover both bases with the ioSafe crushproof, waterproof and fireproof hard drives. They might just survive the forest fire and the animal stampede beforehand.

And for everything else that didn’t come waterproofed as standard, you can put them in one of these Aloksak bags.
It’s lonely on the ascent to Mount Everest but you came prepared with a bunch of iTunes movie rentals on this subzero hard drive from HardTape. Keep your colleagues entertained rather than fixated on depression, should the campaign go pear shaped. Just don’t bring along a copy of ‘Ravenous’ or they might start getting ideas.
Best Sunscreens for mission-critical conditions
Sun exposure at high altitude, or even on the beaches of Cannes can create can be bad for the skin. Protect yourself from looking like Brigitte Bardot with these sunscreens. Also, check out the Allie Extra UV Gel Mineral Moist – it doesn’t break a sweat, even when you do… plus, it hydrates, too!
Unbreakable sunglasses are handy. Until such time as we actually find some, check out these flat-pack sunglasses from Nannini. They swivel down to a flat form factor that fits a case thinner than a pencil, reducing the likelihood of snapping them when you forget they are in your back pocket. Plus, they are inexpensive enough not to cry over when you do manage to break them.
Here’s a travel jacket from Scottevest with 24 pockets and cable management, so that you can put Inspector Gadget to shame. With plenty of storage space for cameras, mp3 players, documents and even a shoulder of pork – you should be able to survive in the wild with a week’s rations tucked away into it without having to live off the land. But, if you prefer to wear your pockets on the outside – the Orvis Ultimate Travel Jacket has got you covered (literally).
