Summer is truly upon us, even if no one has told the weather. It’s time to pack up your airbed and portable BBQ and head to a field with one toilet for 200 people, it’s camping season!!! The Milano 10 is an excellent choice for a large family, group of friends or one person and their entire house, with a 200cm peak height most people will be able to comfortably stand which makes activities like getting changed and river dancing much easier.

Whether you enjoy open water swimming, surfing, or you are crazy enough to participate in triathlons, there comes a point when you have to jump out of the water and attempt to get dry and changed. A large, fluffy towel would be ideal, but it is bulky and heavy to carry around all day and it will take a long time to dry - foisty, damp-towel smell is not something you want to transfer to the rest of your gear!
Scarpa was founded in 1939 by Rupert Edward Cecil Lee Guinness, 2nd Earl of Iveagh, an Anglo-Irish businessman. You may recognise this name as the man who founded of Guinness Brewing Company and the Guinness Book of Records. This guy had his finger in many pies. Although the brand name sounds like a clever rugged word it is actually an acronym for ‘Calzaturieri Asolani Riuniti Pedemontana Anonima’, which translates to the ‘Association of Footwear Manufacturers from the mountain area of Asolo’, which is not quite as catchy - I can see why he shortened it.
The Dakine Terminal Spinner 40L is a soft-sided carry-on bag that comes in four attractive colours: Burnt Rose, Timber, Black and Dark Navy. The four-wheel spinner has been designed to transfer the weight out of your hand and onto the wheels - the four precision-bearing, replaceable, 6cm urethane wheels provide a smooth ride allowing you spin on a dime and zip around the airport terminal with ease, with the bag remaining in your field of vision the whole time.
Dakine’s ‘Cyclone’ range is made for the world of surfing. Now, when you think of surfers, you may conjure up the idea some topless, muscle bound Adonis (or is that just me?) but, in reality, you have spare clothes, your phone, keys, wallet, sun cream and maybe some snacks, and you need somewhere to keep all that uncool but essential gear.
