In October 2015, two adventurers set out on an expedition to kayak the 6,500Km of the longest and largest river in the world - The Amazon.
Tarran Kent-Hume and Olie Hunter Smart kayaked an arduous 10+ hours a day for approximately 4 and a half months, battling with high altitudes, heat, humidity, tropical storms, insects, wild animals and tribes at war to name a few.
"In planning for the biggest adventure of my life, kayaking the length of the Amazon River, I knew we'd need some way of charging our cameras and phones for the trip. Hiking in the Peruvian mountains and kayaking on the water all day every day means we wouldn't have the means to power any of our gear. I remember our lunchtime routine well. We'd pull into the sand bank after 5 hours of kayaking and drag our kayaks onto the shore. I'd reach for the powergorilla and solargorilla and lay then flat out in the cockpit of the kayak. This was always the first thing I did every lunchtime without fail. This kept our cameras rolling.
I'm looking forward to using this kick-ass gear on my next adventure!"
