How To Stay Connected in The Great Outdoors

It's the middle of summer, the days are long and the nights are hot. Perfect time of year to be out and about, enjoying the outdoors. Usually this means leaving your beloved gadgets at home. After all, no one wants to drop their iPhone in the pool or drown their digital camera in the lake. Even if you take any and all precautions to avoid such tragedies, being outdoors usually means being in areas with little service, therefore sucking your battery dry. Only a few moons ago enjoying the outdoors meant being able to disconnect from emails, tweets, status updates and so on. But these are different times, times where we want to be connected all the time, even in the great outdoors.

What good is cliff diving if you can't record it with your iPhone and post the video on Facebook? What's the point of cliff diving if you can't get any comments? But this scenario poses imminent peril for your electronics. First off you can drop your camera bag from said cliff trying to get a POV shot. Then there's the water, the kryptonite to your precious tools. A splash of water is terrifying enough but complete submergence is practically a death sentence. Now let's assume that everything is in working order, there's the added worry of little to no battery life, rendering everything useless as anything other than a paper weight. Take a deep breath, this is a hypothetical situation. No need to fret. Even though we know that there are countless things that could happen I won't continue to worry you any further. Sweat on your brow should happen due to the extra warm sunshine, not the worry I am causing. So let's talk about what we can do to ensure that none of the awful things happen and that you can have the most commented, retweeted and highest ranking experience.

First is the issue of the camera bag plummeting into the abyss? Handled! This Premium High-Impact Plush Carrying Case will protect your camera and if you use the belt loop strap it will stay with you. Just make sure to take it off (or at least take your camera out) before you jump.

Next we have those pesky currents moving all that water. Don't worry; the CamSAVER Waterproof Floating Camera Wrist Strap is the Baywatch lifeguard to your Point n' Shoot. Attach the strap to your waterproofed camera and the lightweight foam strap will keep it afloat.

Lastly there's the issue of power. When you're in the great outdoors you have the most powerful source of energy shining down on you. Use that sunshine for more than a tan by placing the Solar ReStore XL directly in it. The Solar Restore will keep your gadgets charged to their full potential so you can use them as more than weights to keep the corners of your towel down.

So enjoy your summer and make sure to download that app that measures the tide before you dive.
