We take a sneak-peek at some of the great new camping kit that will be available this season
If you need your morning coffee fix quick, you'll love Outwell’s new Manley Expresso Maker. Available in two sizes (medium and large), that’s two and six cups respectively in one brew, the Manley provides a welcome fresh brew in a matter of minutes.
It features a safe and cool touch handle and is suitable for use on all heat sources except induction hobs. Comes in a choice of colours. £10 (M), £13.50 (L).
The Polar Down is the latest performance jacket from pack-away specialists Mac in a Sac. The Polar Down is reversible, filled with responsibly sourced down, has a water repellent outer, is lightweight, comes in men’s and ladies’ style and of course, it’s packable. What’s more it’s sensibly priced at £55.
DexShell’s Terrain Walking sock is new to its waterproof and breathable sock range. With an antibacterial inner featuring a heel to toe terry loop cushioning pad this sock promises blister-free protection and dry comfort in wet conditions.
Outwell’s new range of Dreamboat single and double self-inflating mats will appeal to campers looking for a great night’s sleep. Available in two luxurious thickness options (7.5cm and 12cm) and incorporating unique heat regulating foam construction, these mats provide year-round comfort. Two Outwell AFC valves ensure quick and easy inflation and deflation, while the extra large foam cavities enhance comfort while reducing packed size and weight. From £170.
Cycle campers, campervanners or anyone tight on storage space, will love Vango’s new Micro chairs. Ideal for taking to festivals or simply relaxing on site at the end of the day, these durable steel-framed chairs have a maximum loading weight of just under 19 st (120kg). They pack away small and weight 1.5kg. And at just £25 they won’t break the bank.
You won't need batteries for this tiny camping lamp. Charged via a USB this bulb lantern features three brightness modes making it ideal for lighting up smaller spaces in low mode or larger areas in high mode. Made out of silicone, it’s rugged enough for outdoor use and small enough to pack in your rucksack. Choose from four colours. £18
