We have had a pretty rubbish summer so far: a few hot days here and there mixed with rain, cold temperatures and even snow - typical England. Because of this, we have rather shamefully neglected our back garden, but I was still surprised by how over-grown it had become when I finally dared to venture out there. Due to living in rented accommodation, we are limited to what we can do with the space, so it remains a rather boring gravelly rectangle with very little sunshine, where even lavender will die.
The Vicod 5G 2nd Generation, Atmos’ most compact and discreet vaporisers available, is powered by a 2200mAh lithium-polymer battery and uses advanced temperature controls; these range from 300F to 435F and feature an embedded ceramic heating chamber that is used to vaporise dry herbs and produce a pure vapor. The device is equipped with a temperature memory function so will automatically begin heating up the temperature you had it set to the last time you used it.
The Aegis kit comes nicely packaged with a cool little flip down side opening, included in the kit is Vaporizer, USB charger, cleaning brush, packing tool, replacement filter and user manual. This dry herb vaporiser uses an advanced convection heating method and features temperature controls that range from 320°F to 430°F. Made from a hard-anodised chamber with an isolated airflow design and unique filtration system, the Aegis produces a pure and flavourful vapor.

I am all for gimmicky tech, and anything that might look like it dropped out of a 1970’s Bond movie is always a winner with me, but what I don’t like is gimmicky tech wrapped up in real leather and then being sold at a ridiculous price under the name of ‘fashion’. So, what is the XOO X Casely-Hayford? It is a wearable phone charger, designed with the help of Casely-Hayford, that has been built into a belt with the aim to fuse useful technology with high fashion. It fails at both.
The iconic VW campervan is the pinnacle of the hippie camping lifestyle, but for most people these days it’s well out of their price range. Fear not! You can get the look for a faction of the price and without the risk of breaking down on the way (unless you have the tent in a car as old as mine then it is a constant risk). The VW Tent is a four-man tent with a divider down the middle creating two rooms and it is an exact licensed replica of the 1965 classic. It is available in Blue (our test model), Orange, Red and a limited-edition Green.
Seeland is a company based in Denmark that creates clothing, footwear, and equipment for hunting that has been designed by professional hunters.

The Tropos 32 from Osprey is an everyday and commuting backpack designed for active use. It is available in five colours, Komodo Green (which is what we received), Navy Blue, Black, Armor Grey and Robust Red. It features Osprey’s AirSpeed trampoline suspended mesh backsystem, this reduces the amount of material on your back and creates a large ventilating space keeping you cool and your back dry whilst on the move.
I am more than a little bit in love with this bag. I only wish we had got our hands on it sooner for our recent travels in South America, as this bag is ALL bags, all at once. Do you want a wheelie bag for easy commuting around airports and public transport? A light day pack for exploring? A large comfortable backpack for long tips and travelling? This bag is all those things and more. This light-weight wheeled travel pack transforms into a fully operational backpack.
