No two adventures are the same, but some of your gear should be.
1) The Poles. Trekking Poles.
They might seem like a clunky piece of gear BUT with the right trekking poles you might actually really appreciate the stability they provide. They're even beneficial on flat terrain. Think about it, you've got a 30-35lb pack on your shoulders - having two more contact points means more assurance and less risk of injury. They're worth the try, especially if you find a set that's ultra-light/compact - these are our favorites here👈 At 7oz each it's hard not to justify bringing them along.
2) Multi-Tool Spork?
No matter where adventure takes you, two things remain true: 1) things break, 2) you gotta eat. An easy way to cut weight is to find places where you can use items for multiple purposes and in different configurations. Our favorite eating utensil is theSpork Chop it's primarily a long handled spork for clean hands when chowing down but here's what else it does:
Serrated Edge for Cutting
Knife Edge for Slicing
Hex Tool Adapter for Wrenching
Bottle Opener for Pop'n Tops
Flat Head Screwdriver
Forked Teeth for Shredding
Spoon for Slurping
3) Camp Pillow.
One thing we've learned in our 'research' of being out in the wild (aka going on amazing adventures and camping the whole way through) is that there are some comforts worth the weight. A good solid camp pillow is definitely worth it! We found that pool toy pillows just don't quite do it from a comfort standpoint, and down pillows leave you without any support.
So we opted to design our own camp pillow, it has incredible softness with adjustable support. It's worth every ounce sleeping on a pillow that feels like home.
These aren't your standard trekking poles.
Our Carbon Trekkers break down to just 14 inches in length thanks to their Kevlar Elbows.
Weighing in at just 7 ounces each thanks to their carbon fiber structure and they maintain their integrity with 7075 aluminum inserts at each connection point.
More than a spork.
Our Spork Chop is crafted by hand from Grade 5 Titanium, weighs less than an ounce and has 7 different functions. Most importantly your hands stay clean when you dive into your trail bag chicken teriyaki.
Comes with a Silicone Sleeve to use when you're not slicing, dicing, screwin, or poppin.
Normal camping pillows seem to resemble a pool toy.
When we crafted Pufflo, we knew we had to blend softness and support in a big way, while staying lightweight for the backcountry. Both are important when trying to grab z's.
The Pufflo is made up of two layers, 1) Pillow Topper, 2) Air Bladder. The soft pillow topper on the Pufflo conforms while the valve controlled air bladder provides 'dial in' support.
Our ultralight foldable carbon fiber trekking poles make navigating rough terrain a breeze!

After over 10 years of building gear, Richard has held fast to our two pillars of our gear design, 1) solve problems, and look good doing it 2) over build it with hyper quality.
“Sleeping in the wild should be restful and enjoyable, when you're not worried about getting wet or cold - it's so much easier to feel at peace in the wild”. Being comfortable, protected, and warm in the wild helps you feel at peace... Feels like home. "That's what it's all about."
We'd love to share one of our favorite stories with you. This came from a (now) customer.
My name is Jim Aexfor and I am from Minnesota. I recently returned from a trip with a friend to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota.
I have a Kammok hammock setup while my friend has your Nubé setup he purchased early this year.
During our trip we encountered a bad storm with 50+ mph winds. During the storm my Glider hammock shelter ripped in half. This happened on day 2 of our weeklong adventure. My friend's Nubé shelter withstood the winds and we ended up adding my hammock above his in the shelter so I had a place to sleep out of the rain. We had another night of rain later on in the trip and had to do the same.
I had to let you know how awesome your product is and what a trip-saver is was for us. Otherwise, the trip would have been pretty miserable for me.
I will be shouting from the mountaintops about the quality of your product and will be advising my relatives and friends to check into your products. Ever since I started hammock camping many of my relatives and friends have become interested in this great outdoor experience.
I will be selling my hammock and investing the money into one of your setups. I am a teacher and a volunteer EMT so during the upcoming winter months I will be saving up to purchase the entire Nubé system.
Thank you so much for your incredible products that saved our trip!
What an REI employee said about us...
“I work for REI in the camping department and I also teach wilderness skills for the outdoor school. I have had plenty of experience with other camping gear but not until I tried sierra madre I was never satisfied. Sierra madre has worked the kinks out with their incredible innovation!” — Robert
