We all have go-to gadgets and gear when we travel, and we want to share some of our favourite bits of kit with you. Our recommended products aren’t a random collection of stuff. These are things we use regularly when we travel, they are tried and trusted, and all make our travels more enjoyable.

Whether you want to treat yourself or you’re looking for gift ideas, we have not only suggested products we can vouch for, but we also like the range, value, quality or ethos of the suppliers. For each product there is a link that takes you direct to the supplier where you can pay and order through them.

Hydration Packs

Speaking from experience, you can’t appreciate the value of a hydration pack until you are the only one in a group at the end of a 4 hour hike in summer, without one. Comfortable, lightweight and somewhere handy for your keys, phone and a snack, a hydration backpack is must-have gear when you’re out exploring.



Do you like BBQing in the charred remains of someone else’s marinade? Perhaps you want to make sure your veges’ stay meat free. We wouldn’t be without our BBQ mat. Not only does it guarantee you a clean surface to cook on, but it is also easy to clean up if you have hade an especially saucy cook up.

We love this camera. It is light weight, has an amazing zoom, fast focusing and takes vibrant, sharp pictures. The scene modes and fully articulating screen are handy too. If you want to take your pictures to the next level, it has all the features of a DSLR – but without the hassle of having to carry around a bag of lenses.

It took us a while to get a drone, but once we did it was soon obvious why they are so popular. The unique perspective they give to a landscape is breathtaking.
