Kevin and I recently returned from Outdoor Retailer (the largest retailer show for the outdoor industry, often referred to as OR) and we’ve fallen in love with a few new camping products.

I discovered some great camping and outdoor-related products and will be highlighting them over the next few months. I was thrilled that one of the first companies we came across was Windcatcher, a local Portland business.

Imagine inflating your camping pad with just a few quick exhales into open air. No huffing and puffing, no putting your mouth on a valve of questionable cleanliness. Yes, it’s real: it’s the Windcatcher Air Pad. It literally inflates in seconds with no power or pumping, and deflates just as easily.
