(Buford, GA) â€“ EXOTAC, the hottest new player in the design and manufacturing of high-quality outdoor gear, is proud to make its debut at the 2011 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market with an innovative product selection of firestarters, waterproof fire solutions, and other smart camp accessories.
An independently owned business based in Buford, Georgia, Exotac was started in 2010 by Purdue Engineering graduate, Rob Falkenhayn, who’s passion for all things man and earth made has resulted in an impressively functional and aesthetic product collection. Melding a penchant for sleek, sexy design with a dedication to creating the highest-quality products, the core of Exotac is in its engineering.
â€œExotac is what happens when engineers and guys-who-love-the-outdoors are combined,â€ said Rob Falkenhayn, founder and president. â€œAll of the products we’ve designed have been self mandated in our quest to have the best gear out there that works when you need it to. So we combined some metal with a little dirt and the rest is history!â€œ
One of the company’s marquee products is its nanoSTRIKER â€“ a compact ferrocerium and tungsten carbide firestarter.
Sparing no expense and making absolutely no compromises when it came to product design and manufacturing quality. Falkenhayn set out to create a product that was high quality, ultra-small in size and completely self-contained, and the nanoSTRIKER is the result. Sacrificing neither form nor function, its unique all-in-one design puts all the tools you need to start a fire into one tiny package and at the end of the day, this little tool can be collapsed and returned to key-chain ballast duty.
â€œOne of the best features of the nanoSTRIKER is its compactness,â€ said Falkenhayn. â€œYou really can take it with you anywhere and know that you’ll be able to ease your worries if you find yourself without fire, lost in the woods or simply need to light your camping stove.â€
