One of my favourite things in the summer is heading out to the coast to go camping and soaking up the glorious sunshine; one of my least favourite things is waking up with the sunrise at 5am and by 8am feeling like I am trying to sleep in a sauna. The Mackenzie 4 BlackOut tent from Coleman features their BlackOut Bedroom design; this clever bit of tech blocks out the daylight, keeping the sleeping area cool in the daytime, up to 5°C cooler in fact.
The sun is out, the great outdoors is calling and whether you spend the week living in a field (preferably in a tent or caravan) or simply get out in your garden, local park or industrial estate car park, wherever you end up there’s nothing quite like chilling outside and dining alfresco. The Xcelerate Stove with Double Burner and Toaster from Campingaz provides 2 x 2200W with a gas consumption of 2 x 165 g/h + 75 g/h, it can boil a kettle (at 3 m/s wind speed) in 10 minutes for 1L.
My partner and I like to work out together, with one person resting and spotting whilst the other pushes for the burn, the downside to this is he is a little stronger than me, ok he’s a lot stronger than me, and this means we end up switching out weights and changing the configuration of our equipment with every set. The Bodyblade classic is a one-size-fits-all piece of work-out apparatus that can be quickly passed between users without adjustment and if you are working out alone it is always ready to go, all you need to do it pick it up.
My brother-in-law has very little body fat and as a result he gets very cold, we often see him turn shades of blue you only ever see in zombie movies, the Traveller Gilet from Blaze Wear could be the ideal product to bring back the colour in his cheeks (and legs). Now, sometimes wearable tech isn’t the most stylish of things, but this gilet looks rather smart, you wouldn’t even know it harnesses a heat-boosting superpower.
We have had some seriously indecisive weather lately, heading out for the day involves taking everything from you sun cream to your waders, thankfully the Berghaus GR20 Storm Shell Jacket is so light (278.6g size M) and packs down into such a compact space it is no bother at all to take with you, just in case. If the weather takes a turn for the worse you will be grateful to have it, packed full of features to keep you dry, it is available in sizes Small through to Extra Extra Large.
The Endurance Motorcycle boots are a beautifully designed pair of premium boots, available in brown or black waxed, water-repellent full-grain buffalo leather, in sizes 5 all the way up to 13 and have a stylish design that looks just as attractive on the bike as it does walking into the pub afterwards. These boots will take care of your feet in both hot and wet weather thanks to the breathable and waterproof membrane by preventing the water droplets from entering the boot but allowing water vapour to escape the boot, allowing your foot to remain dry and co
My partner for reasons best known to himself still insists on running and working out with wired headphones, these often end up threaded through sleeves in various configurations and even gave him friction burn on his chest after a recent long run. When the 1More Stylish earphones arrived I practically stuffed them in his ears to show him there is a better way. These earphones come in Black, Gold, Green and Pink with a compact matching charging case which will boost the 6.5 hours of play time up to 24 hours.
