The Uncharted Rapid Raft is the ultimate survival tool for travelers and campers. Designed for rapid water crossings, it’s able to inflate in seconds. Whether you find yourself stranded in a flood or just want a quick raft to fish on, it’s easy to take with you wherever you go.


The raft was made with military specifications in mind and weighs only three pounds. Fully inflated, the raft can hold up to a 400-pound capacity and stretches up to 72 inches in length. There are no inflation pumps needed and it fills manually by hand —,a one-way valve allows you to quickly adjust the air pressure and buoyancy of the raft. It also deflates just as quickly as it sets up. The Rapid Raft is made with ultra-durable Nylon Oxford TPU Laminate and designed to withstand scraps from river bottoms and debris.


While it might not be practical for trips overseas, the Rapid Raft is great for treks across the country or even weekend camping trips. Even if you’re not out and about much these days, it’s a good accessory to have if you live in an area prone to flooding.


Pre-ordering has just begun, with first shipments expected this month. The retail price is $399, which seems a little steep but might be worth the price if it holds up well in an emergency. Be sure to check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.

Get Through Airport Security Faster with CLEAR

Getting through airport security can be a nightmare in and of itself, adding extra hours to your trip that could better be spent in any number of more enjoyable activities. Programs like Global Entry and TSA PreCheck are helping to make the process a little more bearable, but a new program, CLEAR, is quickly emerging as an up-and-coming way to make things even easier.

Review: Sopa Barcelona

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
