As another year begins, it’s time for a fresh start. We all make new year’s resolutions, but this year let’s make them stick. Together, we can make 2018 the year to get out the house and enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer. With that being said, let’s look at some gadgets that will help us get outside this year!
A great activity to get stuck into this year is hiking! When hiking, you get to the beauty of nature and explore the area you’re hiking in. Hiking is a great form of exercise too as you can push your body to its limits and burn a few calories you might’ve gained over Christmas. Gear Hungry rates this activity as one of the best outdoor activities to get stuck into in 2018, so make sure to get your hiking boots on! It’s also a great activity for team bonding as, when hiking in groups, it gives you the chance to talk to each other and find common interests you
may have. You can get to know your friends and family that little bit more with a little bit of quality time hiking together.
When exploring the outdoors, a sleeping bag is an essential item to have with you. Whether you are a keen camper, or just love to watch the stars, having a sleeping bag with you will ensure you stay warm during the night.
If you insist using your old-school sleeping bag from your boy-scout days, you will soon realize it’s a bad choice. It’s a good idea to upgrade your old sleeping bag to a much newer and warmer one. There are loads of options for you to choose from, such as double-wide sleeping bags for couples, Mummy sleeping bags, etc (all of which can be found easily on sites like Gear Hungry). Therefore, depending on the situation you are in, there’s a specific sleeping bag for you.
Handheld Scuba Tank
For all you enthusiastic scuba divers out there, this one’s for you! We all know that hiring equipment or buying the necessary scuba diving equipment can be quite expensive.
However, with this little gadget, you are able to go diving whenever you want to, and wherever you want to. This little gadget is also refillable and is basically a shrunk-down scuba cylinder strapped to a breath-on- demand regulator. There’s also an integrated pressure gauge to tell you how much air is left in the tank. Therefore, this little gadget is a great item to get your hands on, especially if scuba diving or snorkelling are activities you thoroughly love.
Portable Coffee Machine
Lastly, who doesn’t love a good coffee machine you can take on your travels. We all know the UK is a nation of people who love a good cup of tea or coffee, therefore, take your favourite hot beverage with you and make a hot fresh mug of tea or coffee when camping.
Let’s make 2018 the year to explore the outdoors. Make sure to make the most of the outdoors with the above gadgets and enjoy some quality time with the people you love!
