Dreaming Big in the Alaskan Brooks Range Julia Connors October 23, 2014 All, Gear-Contest, Profiles This past July, Francois-Xavier De Ruydts and his documentary crew helped narrate the journey of Arthur, a 21 year-old paraplegic, who’s dream was to cross the Brooks Mountain Range in Northern Alaska. Arthur and the crew spent a month in the Alaskan Range, which included a 10 day walk and 10 day Packraft expedition. To keep his Nikon DSLRs powered up throughout filming, De Ruydts used our faithful 17 Watt Portable Solar Kit. All photos shown were provided by Francois-Xavier De Ruydts. Our 17 Watt Solar Panel Kit making the most of the Alaskan weather. According to De Ruydts, “The system worked great in Alaska… We didn’t see the sun much but I was able to keep shooting thanks to the Voltaic system.” With it’s compact and durable design, it’s no surprise that our portable panel weathered the Alaskan journey.
