Daniel Beltrá’s SPILL: Images from the Gulf

Daniel Beltrá's SPILL: Images from the Gulf

We’re a fortunate company: among our customers are some of the most innovative, talented and accomplished people we’ve ever had the opportunity to meet.

One of those customers is Daniel Beltra, an award-winning conservation photographer and member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP). You may have seen one of Daniel’s aerial photographs of the Gulf Oil Spill in Raffi Khatchadourian’s article, “The Gulf War”, in the March 14, 2011 edition of “The New Yorker.”

An exhibit of Daniel’s photos from the Gulf Oil Spill — SPILL– Images from the Gulf — is featured at the Seattle Aquarium from April 20th – August 7th, and on May 5th, Daniel will take part in a discussion on health of the world’s oceans and marine life as part of the “Sound Discussions” series at the Seattle Aquarium.

    Updates to the Brain Bag (and Smart Alec and Synapse)

    We’ve added a heavy-duty clip to the front of the Brain Bag, just under the top-most zippered pouch. It’s a handy spot to clip a water bottle, umbrella or even an insulated coffee mug. Because it has a low profile, it’s not in the way when you’re not using it.

    We’ve also added a hydration tube clip to all three backpacks: the Brain Bag, the Smart Alec and the Synapse. If you use any of these bags for hiking or cycling, you’ll appreciate the ability to keep the business end of your hydration system conveniently attached to the shoulder strap. It works with most of the popular hydration sacks and fits tubes up to 3/8″ or 10mm. It attaches to the vertical sternum strap adjustment strap on the shoulder straps, and is easily removable if you don’t need it, or if you just want to move it to the opposite strap.
