A former forester up in British Columbia, Brian Saunders, came up with a brilliant chest pack for tablets. He started off with an iPad-sized one, and we called him up right away to ask about an iPad Mini-sized variant.
It took him but a few weeks to make a prototype, and it looks pretty nice. He sent us this picture this morning.
It handles a radio, phone, some marking tape and a few other tools. The harness has places where lots of other items may be hooked.
We’ve actually had foresters ask us whether or not some sort of out-folding chest carrier were available for Forest Metrix, so there’s clearly a need. Brian is selling the larger tablet version for $129.95 USD or $143.95 Canadian.
