Morpher - The Most Efficient Foldable Bike Helmet Around
Wearing a helmet while riding your bike has many advantages. Actually, it has only advantages as long as you wear it! The only issue of bike helmets is they are difficult to store and carry between rides.

Imagine you bike your way to school, you chain your bike o a light pole or to a bike parking space and you head to your classes. But wait … what about that bulky bike helmet hanging on your backpack?
Now you see what I mean?

Fear not, as always, we have your back covered! You can use an Overade Folding Bicycle Helmet we featured earlier, it’s a decent solution to save space between rides. Or you can do even better and use the new Morpher Helmet!
The Morpher Helmet sports a very interesting concept – rather than folding from front to back, it folds sideways allowing you to save more space than most helmets on the market! You can actually flatten the helmet and easily stash it in your backpack among your other gadgets or even in your laptop bag without even feeling you have it on you!
Amazing, isn’t it?

The Morpher successfully finished a crowdfunding campaign, it’s in production mode and you’ll be able to order it in the summer of 2014 via their website.

Mammut Pro Avalanche Protection Airbag Pack
I don’t know about you but I was always afraid of avalanches! While skiing and snowboarding in official resorts seems a bit safer, not the same can be said about wild trails! Make sure you always stay protected by using an avalanche airbag like the Mammut Pro 35L Airbag Pack.

Just as the NorthFace Patrol 24, the Mammut avalanche airbag is designed to deploy in case of avalanche emergency and keep you at or near the surface. The airbag deploys in 3 seconds and, as it is placed on your shoulders, will not interfere with your field of vision. Other than the useful airbag feature, the Mammut Pro also features a generous storage space, a removable snowboard carrier, a soft-lined ski goggles pocket, an U-shaped aluminum frame to support the load and helps transfer weight to the hipbelt, padded shoulder straps and a thermoformed back panel for improved comfort and and ventilation.
