ADVENTURES IN CAMP VIBES | POLER CAMPING STUFF

Poler Camping Stuff is now firmly on my radar. While catching up with Chad & Sam (love them) from Secret Service / Crate at Project in Las Vegas, the subject of camping came up– Chad immediately went into how incredibly awesome his buddy Benji Wagner’s straight-up, laid-back camping line is. So I strolled over to the Work Room exhibit to check out Poler for myself– damn if he wasn’t right. It’s too freakin’ easy to geek-out over camping gear these days– and get your wallet gouged in the process.

Poler is honest-to-goodness, well made stuff that is made for road trips and adventures where quality, value, and honest design is desired over over-priced, tricked-out techy gear. It’s a solid line of tents, sleeping bags (check out the Nap Sack coming soon), apparel and packs that I was innately drawn to for its clean design, price, and honest attitude that appreciates that not every outdoor adventure is about scaling Mount Everest. Sometimes nature calls and you just want to bungee your gear to the bike, hit the open road, and setup camp with nothing more in mind than drawing on a cold PBR by the campfire and chillin’ with your crew.

Benji, also a badass photographer, snapped all the pics seen here, and has a pretty cool tumblr site for Poler that perfectly captures the nostalgic romance of the outdoor lifestyle. Check it.

      • OK I’m liking this Benji even more . Anyone using an M6 has to be at least and interesting person . Been using one myself since Leica came out with them ( hint ; I’m old ) Sumicron 35mm & Tele- Elmarit 90mm and on the hunt for a reasonably priced 50 mm .

  1. So somebody please explain this to me if you would .

    I take a gander at all the great photos here . thinking to myself ” Hey . there’s a few flannel shirts and cargo pants I wouldn’t mind owning ” So I go to the Poler site …. and ……..NO Flannel …. No Pants …….. just tees & hoodies a couple of caps and thats it .

    Did I miss something ?

    • Here here.
      Was hoping for something more substantive than tarps and tees.
      Pants, flannels, and packs look nice – I’ll definitely be psyched when they’re y’know, actually for sale.

    Poler carries the camping supplies in the photos. But yeah, I know what you mean. This wouldn’t make a bad look book for a clothing line either.

    • All,

      There’s some pretty cool stuff from Poler in the pipeline. I’m sure Benji will be stoked about the positive vibes being sent his way regarding sportswear. Be patient with the Poler site, he’s on a tear right now and it’s hard to keep product in-stock.

      • I’ll keep an eye on the site and hope Benji does follow thru on the sportswear idea .

        He’ll get mine ( $ ) if he does .

    • Sorry you feel that way, bro. I camp quite a bit these days and am genuinely stoked about the Poler line and the philosophy, attitude, and folks behind it, so… I’m in. I don’t feel apologetic at all. Not in the least. Go get your camp on.

      Best, JP

  3. Hey I noticed the comments about the lack of goods and wanted to explain: we are just launching the brand now at the tradeshows. There will be packs, bags, sleeping bags and more hitting in the next couple months and then a lot more good stuff for springtime. If you join our mailing list, you’ll be updated when we launch new product. Thanks for the patience and support.—Benji

  4. Now I know for sure: if I ever decide to drop everything and move into the woods, it’s going to be in Oregon. Absolutely beautiful.
