Our Best Sleeping Bag

22 Jun

If you’re in the market for a new sleeping bag this summer, the Montane Minimus is, in my opinion, the absolute best sleeping bag we have available for 2014. “Revolutionary in its fabrication, the Minimus will redefine the limits of sleeping bag use.” Quite simply, the Montane Minimus is incredible. It is ridiculously lightweight, weighing in at just over 29 oz. This is a high quality bag designed for the serious backpacker or outdoor adventurer who will appreciate the craftsmanship and engineering that went in to create such an outstanding and lightweight sleeping bag. To learn more about the Montane Minimus, visit Makais today!

The Emberlit Stove

4 Feb

Calling all campers and backpackers! New at Makais is this awesome wood powered stainless stove from Emberlit: The Emberlit Stove weighs less than 11.3 oz (316 g) and is constructed of rugged stainless steel. When you compare that to a full canister of fuel and burner, the difference in weight is astounding! The stainless steel EmberLit is impervious to corrosion and remarkably strong. This camping or backpacking stove will hold the weight of any pot or pan that will sit securely without wobble. Like the rest of the EmberLit line, this wood burning stove comes with a lifetime guarantee because you are never going to wear it out. With use, the individual panels that make up the EmberLit may take on a slight warp. This is normal and doesn’t affect the assembly or durability of the stove. Great for camping, backpacking, bushcraft, wilderness survival, and disaster preparation.
