Support us through your purchases

Purchasing gear after clicking the links below will give us a commission.  I only post about gear I love or people I trust.

​We helped launch ExtremeGear.org with Cave Exploration Society who fully owns and operates the store and supports us with 10% of full priced items sold.  John Fioroni has given me exceptional customer service and helped me get the gear I needed to accomplish the Dan Osman Leaning Tower rope jump.  If there is something you want and don't see on the site, email him and he can get it for you, and they SHIP WORLDWIDE.  100% of the net proceeds funds their 501(c)3 Non Profit supporting cave exploration projects around the world.

LineScale 3

We got to heavily influence the design of what is now the best all in one load cell on the market with 1280hz (fast) and memory (smart) and the only PPE (safe) dyno available.  HowNOT2 designed the crowdfunding that made this possible and I invested in it myself.  Clicking this link before purchasing supports this channel.

Rocky Talkies

Using my link gets you 10% off!  I needed walkie talkies that were reliable and light with great battery life.  These were essential on the highline world record in Sweden, the California record in Yosemite and the Dano Osman rope swing off leaning tower would have been impossible without them. 

USA Slackline Gear

Jerry Miszewkski is a mathematician and innovator in slackline and highline gear.  Based in the United States (ships internationally), Balance Community has been a huge contributor to the knowledge we have today.  His youtube channel is how I learned slacklining and why I wanted to make my own youtube channel about highlining.  He has answered many many questions that helped HowNOTtoHighline create the resources we have today.  Jerry has been a main sponsor of GGBY festival as well.  Buying stuff helps him create better gear and this link helps out our channel.

Euro Slackline Gear

Spider Slacklines and Slack Inov shared with me how to do segmented highlines and I was able to heavily promote it to become the standard way of rigging today.  They also revolutionized removable rings more than once and make longline rigging significantly easier with their Infinity tension system.  They are one of the most creative and innovative slackline companies out there.

Perfect Descent

The Perfect Descent is what I use on the drop tower to go up and down while staying clipped in at all times.  The speed drive retracts fast so I can speed climb up to my samples without a bunch of slack.  My climbing gym has a ton of these and it makes it easy to just go do a quick sesh when I can't get a partner. 

 

SLC - Mowgli's Adventures

If you are in Salt Lake City - get the best pedicab ride of your life.  A friend and long time supporter of this channel spent a year making the nicest pedicab I've ever seen loaded with so many features.  Mowgli is a great tour guide and knows everything about downtown.  Below is not an affiliate link but tell him you heard about him on HowNOT2 to get him stoked.  The video is the tour I did with him on my latest visit.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
