Want to play with the REVEL LIGHT™ in 3D or Virtual Reality?

 See a detailed breakdown of the features!

 

If you’re anything like us, you love to camp, but you also love life’s little luxuries such as cameras, cell phones, speakers, and GPS to name a few. Previously, heading “off the grid” meant sacrificing some of these comfort items.

At REVEL GEAR™, we believe that comfort and practicality belong together no matter where you travel. That’s why we set out to solve two key problems we kept experiencing on our adventures off the grid: The need for power and the need for light.

 

 

 

What if you never had to worry about your cell phone or camera running out of power while traveling in the backcountry?

Luckily, the REVEL GEAR™ Night Owl™ Solar Pack solves this problem by providing onboard rechargeable power that can be used at any time, after a few hours of fun in the sun.

On a full charge, our industry-leading solar pack is capable of charging your smartphone up to five times.

Charge any place, any time.

The REVEL GEAR™ Night Owl™ Solar Pack converts solar energy into stored energy meaning you’ll never have to leave your electronics charging under the hot sun again. 

It also includes 2 USB ports that allow you to charge two devices at once. 

In order to protect our Solar Pack on rugged terrain, we designed a snap-on case that fits comfortably around its battery. When you’re ready to power up, a carabiner and four paracord attachment points provide simple mounting solutions for a variety of stationary or on-the-go scenarios.

We are firm believers in the solar energy movement and we’ve done our homework. Here’s how we stack up to the competition:

With the REVEL GEAR™ Night Owl™ Solar Pack, powering the night is simple and seamless - attach it to the REVEL LIGHT™ and enjoy the view.

 

 

 As Jon Muir once said:

“The world’s big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”

We used to feel the same way, until we dreamt up a solution. Meet the REVEL LIGHT™.

The REVEL LIGHT™ is a portable 30ft. light strand designed to make your outdoor adventures shine even brighter.

How does it work?

Light is emitted from 100 LED diodes that are evenly spaced across a pliable, 30 foot conductive wire. 

To eliminate the risk of wire kinks and breakage, each strand is insulated with a flexible epoxy coating that also provides protection from rain, snow, dirt, and whatever else Mother Nature throws your way.

Our lights have a waterproof rating of IP65.

Manageable Storage

30 feet is a significant length. That’s why our proprietary storage solution makes strand management actually manageable. Each light strand is neatly coiled around a REVEL LIGHT™ Spool.

Our goal was to make setting up and tearing down your lights as easy as possible. 

Easy 10 Second Setup

Extra Bells & Whistles

Once we reached our goal, we decided to include a few bells and whistles that add security and value to any off-grid adventure. The result is a versatile storage solution and a modern camping essential.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

        

 

 

        

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

We believe in our products and we know that the only limit to the REVEL GEAR™ Night Owl™ Solar Pack and the REVEL LIGHT™ is your imagination. 

If you live for the weekends, and you prefer to take the road less traveled, you belong in the REVEL GEAR family. 

Our early adopters and product testers have taken the creativity of our design to new heights. Our LED lights have been dragged behind boats, tossed into rivers, and hung as artwork. They have even been carried through extreme conditions such as the uncharted ice caps of the Arctic, and the unforgiving jungles of Costa Rica.

It all started as a tangled mess of Christmas lights, a 15 lb. generator, and the belief that there must be a better way to light the night.

REVEL GEAR was born October 1st, 2015. Since forming, we’ve been hard at work designing and perfecting the products that we proudly share with you today.

Here’s a look at the progression:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Odds are, you probably don’t have time to join the Peace Corps. Instead, you do your best to make the world a better place.

We believe that positive consumer practices have the power to change the world. That is why we’ve built our foundation around a unique Giving Program that provides our customers the opportunity to pay-it-forward to people in need.

 Our motto is simple: Do good. Have fun.™

Our partners at the Colorado Coalition for African Empowerment (CCAE) have stepped up to provide distribution channels in 20 African countries that we wouldn’t otherwise have access to. We are beyond grateful for their support and with your help, we look forward to making an impact in each of these countries.

 

Join the movement as we aim to provide power and light for all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

In any good adventure or business venture, the key to success is education, preparation, execution, and perseverance. Fortunately, we have these areas covered. This is our second business venture, and we are currently working alongside an incredibly talented team of engineers, business advisors, attorneys, product consultants, manufacturers, and everyone else in between.
