Hiking & Packrafting Adventures

LifeStraw or Sawyer Mini to filter water?

When you plan on what to pack in your backpack when preparing for a longer hiking trip you probably also want to carry a water filtration system with you.

In the past I had a look on water filtration systems which looked more durable but were heavy and took a lot of space in my backpack.

However, recently new solutions have appeared on the market for outdoor enthusiasts who prefer to travel light.

In this article I am going disccuss if you should choose the Sawyer Mini or the LifeStraw Personal water filter as a possible ultralight water filter solution.

Comparison and differences - YI 4K+ or GoPro Hero5?

YI Technology has recently announced the YI 4K+ and I am quite excited to see that there are more GoPro alternatives available.

What makes the YI 4K+ impressive (and sets it apart from the GoPro Hero5) is that it can record 4K with 60FPS. Moreover, the YI 4K+ can also record with a higher resolution than the GoPro Hero5.
