CHOGORI ULTRINO originated from the expeditionary flying needs, that is, as a lightweight but most comfortable and tough construction, used mostly without a foam back protector.
And all the electronic toys need some “juice” and it´s nice when you don’t have to carry several chargers and you can use one for all. How you will mix them is just up to you. Another possibility is to use a solar charger but so far I didn’t need it. Minimalism is the way!
For taking nice pictures I usually use a reflex camera Canon EOS 650D with a battery grip for 6 AA batteries, with a lens Canon EF 70-200/4, 0L IS USM and Sigma 10-20/4-5,6 ASP. With an external flash and a bag it makes about 3000 grams. Because of reducing the load I also bought Sony […]

I use Victorinox with a small saw, screwdriver and a bottle screw for years – 126 g. And I finally understand that I won’t open a bottle of wine in mountains, I can’t use a knife on the airport because it’s already packed in a checked-in backpack… and I don’t use the screwdriver and the […]
For XC flights you need to hear a vario with a sound of good-quality. You’ll appreciate an actual height, a flight speed and a compass – these are basic functions. You can fly without them also and don’t have to take any devices for a flight with you but that’s not a good idea. Nevertheless, […]
