Steve had this to say when he met up with his team in London just prior to heading for the Sahara:“2C hats have gone down an absolute treat!!!!The whole crew are in raptures over them!And perfect for this trip.”
The 2C SLC 750 is made from a special material with the properties of high water wicking ( not needed for the Sahara!), SPF50+ and breathable - and by generating power by day for their lighting needs at night, the style is perfectly suited to the conditions. The peak of the 2C Solar Light Cap is IP66 rated, so 100% dust proof - great for the wear and tear of the sandy conditions.Amongst his many accolades, Steve Gurney won the New Zealand coast to coast 9 times by fitness, strength of will, and a desire to push new technologies.
“ Traveling for work, as we at Nomadic planet do, requires a lot of preparation and a high dependency on reliable gear. Having personal light is essential to us as we start our days well before sunrise and finish in the dark. In places like Nepal even the capital, Kathmandu, had power shortages every single night! In some of the smaller settlement electricity is very scarce indeed.2C Solar Light Caps met our need for hands free light and the freedom from reliance on batteries (both as an environmental stand and in order to obviate the issue of accessibility). “The Caps’” bright light saved us from falling into gutters in the cities and off cliffs in the countryside quite a few times. Their durability was tested with rain, dust, falls and wind. They still work each time we press the button. But the most notable quality is the solar recharge. For us, it means one less issue to deal with as recharging or looking for replacement batteries takes us from our core business of capturing images.All these qualities became so important in our last visit to the Himalayas as we were getting used to new photographic gear and places we had never visited before. Knowing that we had a secure source of light, and therefore one less thing to think about, was a great relief when working in a foreign environment. “Giora Dan, Nomadic Planet
Your Cap with light I had to use every day, both during a day and during a night.
I would not manage to be without it, especially in the tropical forests. It's getting dark early here and people are in the economy in part of electricity. Roads are not good and without lighting I could broke my legs any moment. It is also a common situation, when you go somewhere for an hour and have to stay at some interesting place till the late evening. Within a moment it is dark around! When I was biking in Bagana (Miyanma) around the ancients ruins I have been caught by darkness unawares and could find a way to the hotel only thanks to your Cap.
One day in Indonesia, I could even get the savings for 2 dollars! It was necessary to start climbing to observation place on volcano Bromo (Yava Island) at 2 am. It was quite difficult to be without lighting. Local "businessman" was offering the lights for 3 hours rent at $2. Without any doubts I will be recommending your Cap to everybody. It is very suitable, efficient, comfortable and even economical product.
"The 2C is a great tool for adventure racing support crews and it keeps you visible during night time training sessions"
I received my 2C Siolar Light Cap as a Christmas present. Its first mission was to come kayaking with me for 4 days around Abel Tasman over the new year. I was a bit worried about the salt spray affecting the light but I didn't need to. It was fantastic as a cap during the day and was the only light I took with me for the whole trip. It charged up during the kayaking and then at night I used it to see what I was cooking and eating for dinner and it was great for finding the way to the loo from my tent in the middle of the night. It was also a great talking point at some of the busier campsites where other campers were very impressed.A few days later my cap and I walked the St James Walkway in the Lewis Pass. I wore the cap during the day, even in light showers and at night I used it again 2C what I was making for dinner and to read about the next day's journey. I was impressed that it seemed to be just as bright when I turned it on in the early hours of the morning as it was when it was just getting dark.The 2C Light also came with me on the Kepler track a 4 day tramp near Te Anau. Aside from the way I had already been using it the cap came on a small caving excursion close to the hut on night one of the tramp. The light from the cap was enough for me to explore the cave with 4 other friends who had hand-held torches. I had the benefit of having both hands free to clamber around the cave and not worry about my torch.Next week I am starting my OE to the UK and the 2C-Light is one of the "essentials" for my pack. It is great in the day time to keep the sun off my face and hair tied back, I am finding new uses for it at night all the time and it is a great talking point to meet people.
