The Monowalker Helps You Hike With Heavy Loads

Pay no attention to the brawny, soul-patched woodsman in this picture! Instead look behind him to the Monowalker, a sort of reverse wheelbarrow that lets you pull 45kg of gear with relative ease.

Sure, it costs $US1,000, but it’s a sturdily built trailer that makes it feel like your load is halved. You can also, in inopportune terrain, wear it as a backpack. And if you’re the type who goes on very long walks with loads of equipment—photographers, hunters, wrongly accused felons escaping from the long until you can rightly prove your innocence—it may very well be worth it.
