Sleeping rough doesn’t have to mean sleeping on hard ground. These bamboo fiber sleeping pads are light and very comfortable. They pack up small, are light to carry ( at just 1lb 6oz) and very warm. They use bamboo fiber as the outer fabric and for the fill for great insulation. Even the valve is made of recycled aluminum, so they have been made with eco-friendly principles a priority.

This would perhaps make a great present for a musical hiker or perhaps someone who tends to hike in esoteric places like Macchu Picchu,Taj Mahal or maybe to a 90’s reunion of Iron John enthusiasts hiking to a the Drum Circle in the woods. Seriously though, this seems like an awesome walking stick, sturdy,light, and can take the rigors of a vigorous walk. Also made with eco-friendly bamboo. It also has a compass inlaid on the top as well as a strap and rubber tip. The tortoise shell finish is strikingly beautiful and they have other options like hand inked models and they will also customize it with engravings, custom length and other options. I didn’t see any link to hear what they sounded like but they have customer photos of places people travel with their stick flutes.
These flutes can play up to 2 octaves and are tuned to a Major Scale (G).
