The moms don’t care who summited, they don’t care how rad you were, they care that you come home!
Handpresso created a machine with the ultimate versatility. With the Handpresso Wild hybrid, you may vary the coffee experience as inspiration and weather dictates. Not only is the Wild hybrid versatile, but the quality is still there! The Handpresso Wild hybrid is simple, light, elegant and compact. You bring it absolutely anywhere: in the office, on holiday, on weekends, while trekking or travelling. You generate a 16-bar pressure as with a bicycle pump, add hot water (from a kettle or a thermo flask), espresso coffee, and prepare a high quality espresso.
At under nine ounces, the ridiculously warm and lightweight Quasar is a modern marvel. Ultralightweight, DWR-treated Pertex® Quantum® shell fabric and the best 900-fill down available give this jacket an unbelievable warmth to weight ratio and compactibility that’s next to nothing. Stuff the coat into its own zippered chest pocket for fast and light packing.
