Gtech, experts in home and garden tech, sent us the latest in their cordless trimmer range - the Cordless Hedge Trimmer HT3.0, and the matching Cordless Grass Trimmer GT3.0. It’s getting chilly out, so now isn’t the most fun time of year to be working on the garden, but what better time to test how convenient these really are?

Fat Shark is the undisputed leader in FPV goggles and headsets. Their top of the line HDO goggles are brilliant. It is a top-end box style FPV headset that has some excellent features. I feel Fat Shark has paid attention to detail and these goggles are extremely well done. The feel fat shark scout is well built but aren’t overly heavy. The Scout weighs 350 grams including the rechargeable battery.
So, here’s the crane m2 from Zhiyun. This is a gimble that allows you to be as heavy handed and unstable as want you as want when filming, it can hold smart phones, go-pros and other small scale mirrorless cameras as well as offering a large scope for movement to keep the camera steady and level. Operating your camera using buttons on the handle is nice and easy. To use zoom and capture/record you can connect via Bluetooth or use the buttons on the handle which are very responsive and tactile.
The Ridgerunner by Warbonnet is a very lightweight and easy to set up bridge-style hammock. Whilst being compact and only weighing 27oz, the Ridgerunner is an excellent bit of kit to carry around with you. The hammock features a mosquito net which can be pulled tight, so it never makes contact with your body or face and an additional bottom layer that hangs below the hammock for additional protection against insects.
So, here’s an interesting way to keep a hold of your dog, this is the darth Vader dog lead by TMF. The lead features a rechargeable red LED strip light and reflective stitching to allow you to safely walk at night and and look like the Sith lord himself. The handle of the lead is also just so happens to look like the hilt of the lightsabre which is comfortable to hold and has a button to turn on the light and simultaneously make the iconic sounds.
The worst thing for me about camping is struggling to sleep with uncomfortable beds. I have tried many different types of foam beds and air beds, all of which are a poor substitute to a real bed.

In the UK a fire pit is the norm in our gardens. Even in early or late summer the temperature plummets at night and a fire pit is guaranteed to take the edge off those cooler evenings. There is also something mesmerising about sitting outside and watching the flames, I love evenings like this.
