RIVERTON, WYOMING – Citing the ability deliver a charge into any adventure, the editors of Field & Stream magazine give Brunton’s Restore portable power device a prestigious “Best of the Best” award in the just-released September issue.

Pioneering portable power for the outdoors, Brunton’s Restore allows outdoor enthusiasts to take a charge anywhere their adventures take them – from a backcountry basecamp to ridgeline trails.

“This is an exciting honor all of us at Brunton can share. We’ve worked hard to create a practical solution for our customers who need to keep their gear powered up in the wild. The Restore is the innovative outcome of pairing our insights from years of outdoor experience with our expertise in building technically advanced outdoor gear,” said John Smithbaker, president of the Brunton Outdoor Group. “Brunton is proud to be the first company to give hard-core hunters and adventurers a practical way to plug-in wherever their outdoor quests take them. We are proud and pleased that Field & Stream has chosen to recognize us with this great award.”

Field & Stream’s “Best of the Best” is awarded by a panel of hard-core adventurers and gear junkies assembled by the editors. The panel puts a variety of equipment through its paces, then calls out the outstanding gear they find, from rods and reels, to trucks, electronics, guns, bows and shooting accessories.

The Brunton Restore drew rave reviews from Field & Stream editors, capturing an award in the “Essentials” category.

“Because our lives off the grid do overlap with our loves on, the solar-powered Restore brings the two together,” wrote Field & Stream’s editors. “Regardless of how you feel about taking cell phones into the field, being able to power up using the sun can be a matter of convenience, if not survival… The portable power storage unit can charge small electronics, from GPS units to digital cameras, and comes with a mini USB adapter that accommodates many types of cell phones.”

The Brunton Restore provides users with an eco-friendly and convenient option to power up. Recycling energy from the sun, the Restore is an efficient solar charger and compact storage unit in one.

Joining the Restore in Brunton’s extensive line of Adventure Armored™ portable power options are 18 uniquely designed chargers and power packs that are built to stand up to the extreme conditions found in remote areas. Rechargeable from the wall, computers, vehicles or the sun, Brunton provides easy to use power to personal electronics for hours.

Brunton power packs and solar panels work separately or together. It’s the world’s first integrated portable power system, built to power your electronics to the end of the earth.
