Revant Weekend

By Revant Optics

August 16, 2017

Work hard, play hard

That’s the motto we live by here at Revant. Weekends give us a chance to recharge and refuel so we can get back to doing what we love all over again on Monday morning.

This week, we asked a few of our team members where they like to blow off steam:

JORDAN POPE — PRODUCT INTERN

Best destination for a weekend getaway?

Billy Clapp Lake — Middle of Nowhere, WA

Favorite roadtrip song?

Pursuit of Happiness — Kid Cudi

What’s your choice Revant lens for your weekend activities?

Elite Titanium

Billy Clapp Lake
Wakesurfing on Billy Clapp Lake

CODY KAUTZ — GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Where is your favorite place to travel to?

Utah

What are two travel essentials you can’t live without?

I usually take along a camera, but my bike is quickly becoming a staple of all my travel efforts.

What’s your choice Revant lens for your weekend activities?

I’m digging my Adapt Grey Photochromic lenses. The adaptive quality is great as you are transitioning from the dense forests to the scenic ridgetops that are abundant in the Pacific Northwest.

What’s your number 1 piece of advice when hitting the road?

My #1 piece of advice is to buy a 2-gallon fertilizer sprayer and fill it with water. You can hose down your gear or yourself at the end of a long day. Bonus points for leaving it in the sun to warm up while you are out on a ride.

STEPHEN VALESANO — LEAD DESIGNER

Best destination for a weekend getaway?

Mt. Hood on the Timberline Trail

What’s your favorite road trip snack?

For backpacking, Cliff Bars or dried mangos

What’s your choice Revant lens for your weekend activities?

It has to be the Elite Polarized Rogue Green. It makes the forest and everything looks so rich and vibrant.

What's your number 1 piece of advice when hitting the road?

Make sure you have a good map, headlamp, and basic survival gear so it's there if you need it.

JASON BOLT — CEO

Where is your favorite destination to travel to?

Locally: Hood River, Oregon—specifically Post Canyon for a day of mountain biking and then head into Hood River for some killer pizza and beer at Double Mountain.
Internationally: Croatia

Favorite road trip snack?

Flavor Blasted Gold Fish followed by yellow Gatorade.

What's your choice Revant lens for your weekend activities?

Rogue Green FTW—great all around high-contrast lens.

What's your number 1 piece of advice when hitting the road?

Relax and take time to connect with nature. Also, make sure everyone in the car brings plenty of deodorant—nothing kills a road trip faster than a BO hotbox.
