If you’re a big fan of gear at your campsite, this product is for you. The Cruz BlenderCap is a wireless blender that screws onto wide-mouth bottles like a Nalgene or Hydroflask.

The portable blender allows you to make protein shakes, smoothies, and even some evening drinks like a frozen daiquiri. The founders say they headed to the outdoor showcase due to how many customers have used the device while camping. The BlenderCap sells for $129.
