Klymit introduces Hammock Sleeping Pads!

We’re excited about the new product release from Klymit! The brand new  Klymit Hammock V and Klymit Insulated Hammock V are a unique set of inflatable sleeping pads created specifically for innovating the comfort of your hammocks.

 With this warmer weather there’s nothing quite like relaxing and lazing around in a hammock. Hammock’s are the perfect camping accessory if you want to sleep under the stars, but they often take a little getting used to a first.

The new Hammock V is engineered to stay in place. Strategically placed non-slip zones on the top and bottom of the pad keep everything firmly in place inside your hammock. The Hammock V also includes these brand new side rail wing features which reduce the chill from hitting you during the night. Weighing only 765 grams, and taking 10-15 breaths to inflate, the Hammock V is unlike any hammock sleeping mat on the market.

The Insulated Hammock V is the extra warm version of the Hammock V. Insulated with KlymaliteTM pads, the Insulated Hammock V will keep you cosy by isolating warmer air to the top of the pad, and staying in place with new non-slip zones. Incredibly light, it only weighs 900 grams making this hammock sleeping pad perfect for backpackers adventuring during any of the seasons.

Summer Survival Kit

Summer Survival Kit

Summer in Australia can be hot, wet and downright sticky.  With ripper temperatures, storms and fun to be had during the months December through February, we thought we’d compile a list of our top 5 picks to help you survive the summer.

Goal ZeroYeti 1250 Solar Generator

Summer time is generally associated with the beach, sun and just general fun. But in Queensland it often means storms. Summer storms can blow trees down and knock over power lines so it’s always a good idea to have a back-up generator ready. The Yeti 1250 by Goal Zero will power your modem and fridge when you need it most, and better yet, you can keep it indoors as it uses no fuel, produces no fume and no noise. Pair the Yeti 1250 with the Boulder 90 Solar Panel to recharge the generator when the sun comes back but the power hasn’t. *Advised to have charged prior to storm.

Wildhorn OutfittersSand Escape Beach Blanket

<h2=”text-align: center;”>Going to the beach is a universal past time that everyone loves when the warmer months hit. There’s nothing quite like laying on the beach soaking up the rays (with sunscreen on of course), but try as you might, you’ll probably end up getting the unpleasant sand in all your nooks and crannies. Keep your belongings and body free from sand with Wildhorn Outfitter’s Sand Escape Beach Blanket! Made of a unique parachute fabric which allows sand to glide off, this beach blanket also packs down to just over half the size of an A4 book meaning you can easily take it with you just about anywhere.

KlymitStatic V

<h2=”text-align: center;”>If sleeping under the stars rather than hitting the sand and surf is more your territory, then as a camper you would know it’s best to pack light. But traditionally packing light has meant compromising on comfort and if you’re trekking a far way to sleep under the stars you probably want nothing more than a comfy sleeping pad to rest upon. Now, with Klymit’s Static V Sleeping Pad you don’t have to compromise! Weighing only 514 grams the Static V’s unique design supports the curvatures of your body, meaning you’ll sleep like a baby wherever you decide to set up camp.

Lynx HooksStash Bag

When your camping trip involves a trailer instead of a backpack to carry all your gear, then you’d know a thing about tying down your gear. But choosing the right tie down is also extremely vital. Traditional occy straps can come loose or snap, and no one wants your camping chair flying out of the trailer down the high way, or even worse, losing an eye to an overstretched occy strap flinging directly into your face.  Lynx Hooks are a great adjustable alternative that create the same tension without the recoil. You’ll have a peace of mind knowing your gear is safe and secure with Lynx Hooks.

Disc-O-BedKid-O-Bunk

With summer comes school holidays. And if you have kids you know school holidays mean sleepovers. Whether there’s 2 kids or 10 kids running around your house during the night you’re going to need something to get them to rest on later. The Cam-O-Bunk from Disc-O-Bed is a dual-level, elevated sleeping arrangement, which will save you space whilst still providing more beds to sleep on. Capable of holding up to 90 kgs per level, the Cam-O-Bunk can also convert into a chair. So whether you’re hosting a slumber party for your kids, or just want an easy sleep/seat option, the Cam-O-Bunk removes all the stress.

Behind the Scenes of Canon Collective

A few months back we joined Canon Collective on Moreton Island and we haven’t really stopped talking about it since.

We went over for the annual photography festival which the Canon Collective set up in different locations every year.

It was such a great time so we thought we’d give you guys a behind the scenes look at what went down. Here’s an exclusive look at what we do for our brands.

Our Goal Zero Lithium Range was the sole source of power for the Camera recharging station and Camera Flashes whilst out on the remote desert shoot.

And our Wildhorn Outfitters Seaview 180 Full Face Mask was used for all the underwater shoots.

For us, doing events like this for our brands is so important. We love being given the opportunity to teach others how to make the most out of their adventures and the outdoors with our gear.

We look forward to the future opportunities in 2018 to educate individuals on how to incorporate our brands into their outdoor adventures.

When you work with outdoor gear and lifestyle products day in and day out, whether it be selling or marketing them, answering customer inquiries about them or just plain packaging them, you eventually get to have a little play with them and get a feel for which products you want for yourself. Some of us have been working here longer than others and have tried and tested many of the products we distribute here which has made choosing some of our Favourites quite difficult, but we’ve managed to list all the Staff Top Picks.

Lynx Hooks Feature in RV Daily

One of our smaller, up and coming brands Lynx Hooks have been featured in the 20th Issue of RV Daily!

8 whole pages dedicated to the greatest thing to come to the world of tie-down systems, our Lynx Hooks are designed to be simple, safe and superior.

On pages 105 to 112 you’ll find images, videos, and an in-depth review with everything you need to know about Lynx Hooks.

This comes at perfect timing as we recently stumbled across this video that we thought had some interesting statistics about occy straps.

Did you know that annually, over 500 Australians end up hospitalised due to sever ocular damage from recoiling occy straps?

Our Lynx Hooks were specifically engineered to replace the traditional octopus (occy) straps and bungee cords, whilst utilising the same tension to secure down gear without the risk of recoil.

Unmatched by any other competitor on the market, AMK is proud to be the exclusive distributor of the brand.

AMK Enterprises Collecting with Canon

As Australian gatekeepers of the brands we distribute over the weekend just gone, we represented Goal Zero and Wildhorn Outfitters and let them run loose in Tangalooma with Canon Australia for the Moreton Island Photography Festival.

1C0A5299

The two brands made up half of the sponsors for the Canon Collective event, and alongside AquaTech and F-stop Gear, helped teach and provide gear to best capture the weekend theres nothing more we love than getting outdoors and using the brands that we love and letting people experience our products first hand.

IMG_6225

As a national park, Moreton Island offers an incredibly array of visually diverse locations just off the coast of Brisbane.

Hosted by Canon Collective for Canon Australia the festival provided a variety of experiences to learn and practice photographic skills to help participants up their photography game.

During Helicopter Aerials over Moreton Island, Sand Dune Fashion Workshops and Wreck Snorkelling Workshops, all hosted from the 27th to the 29th of October, we were able to provide solar powered gear and beach products to help photographers make the most out of the weekend.

AMK Sponsored three dominated categories as our flagship brands on behalf of Wildhorn and Goal Zero so there was plenty of product love to go around with some pretty stoked winners  of Wilhorn Masks, Nomad 7s and the Major prize winner of a Sherpa 50 Kit, including the inverter!

With all the photography and artistry in the air we use this opportunity to gather a whole bunch of original Australian content that we use in our marketing materials for all of our brands whilst we’re in such an iconic location.

Sponsoring this event provided an opportunity to educate photographers on how to incorporate Goal Zero solar power and Wildhorn Outfitters beach products into their photographic ventures. It’s events like these that help us build our brands and we love these grassroots activities to be able to mingle with like minded individuals who love the adventures and outdoors as much as we do.

AMK Enterprises is excited to add a new member to our brand family! A big welcome to Wildhorn Outfitters sitting alongside our other great brands including Goal Zero and Klymit.

 

Having water sports, beach and hiking trail products, Wildhorn Outfitters are the perfect match to complement our other brands. The Seaview 180 Full Face Snorkel Mask, Outpost Hammock and TerraLite Portable Camping Chair are just a few of the Wildhorn products which AMK is excited to share with Australia.

 

Their innovative Seaview 180 Full Face Snorkel Mask has reimagined the traditional snorkel mask which eases the snorkelling experience with anti-fog, anti-leak and sand-proof capabilities in one compact design.
