Bring on the adventure with the Ti2 Sentinel X Aluminum Cache

June 20th - via: the-gadgeteer.com
Hiking, fishing, white water rafting, geocaching – these are all things I do not do on a regular basis. I do travel a bit though, and when I do I am always looking for neat, multi-purpose, rugged, functional products to take with me on my adventures. The Ti2 Sentinel X Aluminum Cache, a Kickstarter project by Mike Bond is made to handle all the adventure I can handle and more. (Read More)

Ti2 Sentinel X Cache

June 5th - via: gearhungry.com
Have goods worth protecting that won’t fit in the original Ti2 Sentinel Cache? Odds are the Ti2 Sentinel X will do the trick. Based on the same principles as the original – lightweight, watertight, and ultra durable – these aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum caches feature an internal 2″ diameter and 6″ length, adding versatility and accommodating larger objects (or just larger quantities). They also feature redundant o-rings for reliability, a reinforced skeletonized design for strength, and come in two versions: the food-grade Sentinel X1 and [non-food grade] Sentinel X2, the former of which can be used to boil or sterilize water in a pinch. (Read More)

Ti2 Sentinel X - Aluminum Cache

June 3rd - via: wasabimountain.com
Keep your gear dry with the Ti2 Sentinel X, an anodized aluminum cache featuring lids on both ends with double o rings ensuring that whatever you stashed inside stays water free, and can be easily removed when you need it. Here's another trick, because of the silicone based o rings the Sentinel x can be heated over open flame to sterilize water. The 2" diameter and 6" depth is a result of backer feedback from a Kickstarter project creator Mike Bond ran for a smaller cache at the end of 2012. Mike had a 617% fund rate and is looking to replicate the same success with the Ti2 Sentinel, which has already at 165% with another 32 days to go. (Read More)

Spicytec: Ti2 Sentinel X Aluminum Cache

June 1st - via: spicytec.com
The Ti2 Sentinel X is a no compromise, hard anodized, aluminum, lightweight, water-tight, large format cache for storing critical items and, in a pinch, can be used as a vessel over an open flame/heating source for water boiling/ sterilizing. Ti2 Sentinel X is tested water tight and features Twin orings for redundancy, strength optimized using CAD parasolid modeling resulting in a unique ribbed/skeletonized design and uses aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum in its construction. At just 400 grams the “X” offers a minimal weight footprint. (Read More)
