# 1 Hiking and Mountain climbing
The moment when our founder Lukas Watzinger's camera fell out of his hand during a hike in the summer of 2018 was the birth of REELOQ. After this financially painful hiking fiasco, it was clear to him that he had to develop a solution for this problem. The original field of application was hiking and mountaineering, although Lukas did not know at that time how many outdoor sports REELOQ can be an aid for safe photography.
REELOQ is the must-have for every hiker and mountaineer! You can easily attach it to your backpack, the waistband of your hiking pants or your belt. With the included carabiners and other aids, you don't have to buy any additional equipment. You can find out how to attach your action camera with REELOQ here. If you want to secure your smartphone with REELOQ, you will find detailed instructions here.
# 2 Mountainbiking
Especially on wild descents when mountain biking, it is often difficult to take a photo in between. But with REELOQ you can attach your action camera to your backpack within easy reach and take a quick selfie in a short break without having to dig out your mobile phone or GoPro from your backpack. One of our first customers Toni's conclusion after his first bike ride with REELOQ "a huge relief when taking photos quickly".
