LYNX Hooks Loves Mother Nature...Even When She’s In A Bad Mood January 29, 2016 16:34

In 2015, a record-breaking windstorm in the Pacific Northwest snapped thousands of healthy trees, but in those same hurricane-force winds, LYNX Hooks Gear Straps held the tarps to a greenhouse without breaking a sweat.

Fifty-five mph gusts at the Overland Expo in Arizona snapped the lines on this high end shelter, but LYNX Hooks Gear Straps and Bobtails held a humble tarp, and our booth, secure.

Don’t let Mother Nature keep you from living a full life of adventure. Just be prepared! With LYNX Hooks Interlocking Adjustable Gear Straps and Bobtails. Just another way we’re helping you Get Out There.

Stay Safe, Go Wild January 15, 2016 16:17

One of my favorite adventuring articles of 2015 was entitled Wilderness Fears Debunked, and featured in Canoeroots Magazine. It highlighted nine major wilderness risks, and paid special attention to our awareness of them. There’s the obvious dangers that roar or crackle, then the far more insidious ones that freeze, or weaken and sicken from the inside out. But perhaps the biggest danger is “not going at all,” letting the hazards scare you into staying home, settling for a life lived indoors.

I think the article resonated so much because it really brought me back to LYNX Hooks’ mission--helping people spend more time doing what they love--and our simple tagline “Pack. Secure. Play.” While our hooks help people to ‘secure’ their gear in a very literal fashion, steeling yourself against the potential hazards (known and unknown) of the great outdoors is a vital part of staying safe. Now, LYNX Hooks alone won’t defend you against a bear, or the cold, or the sun, or the storm. But, we like to think we make it a little easier to pack in your bear spray, tie down your shelter, or carry all your extra layers. Because that’s our goal. To help you, whether you’re living life in the wild or living a wild life, stay safe and get out there.
