Travel Gear: An inflatable solar lamp, toting wine in the outdoors and double dog walking

 

Tangle-Free Dual Dog Lead 

As the owner of a pair of dogs myself, the perils of the double lead walk are all too familiar: the inexhaustibly curious one criss-crosses the less distracted other’s lead constantly for a tight plait. The Tangle-Free Dual Dog Lead has a pair of nylon cables in a body that can rotate 360 degrees to avoid crossing. They’re colour-coded with separate controls to lock. The leads are a modest 3m. Of course you can always just rope your canine wanderers together dog sled-style, but where’s the gadgetry in that?

LUCIINFLATBABLELAMP_WEBMpowerd Luci Inflatable Solar Light

Good for packing away for travels off the beaten path, these Luci inflatable lamps are solar powered. You’ll get 12 hours from a full charge and it collapses flat when you’re not using it. With LEDs supplying the lumens, it’s likely the bulbs will never run out as they’re good for thousands of hours . And given it’s shatterproof, waterproof and floats, it’s an option for sailing and camping too. This is the basic Luci model, but there are other emergency, coloured and more decorative versions for off-grid mood-setting.

GSIOUTDOORSWINETOTECARAFE_WEBGSI Wine Tote and Carafe

You know how it is. You’ve reached that spectacular viewing point or hard-hiked summit and if only you’d something to mark the moment other than the trusty flask and sanger. Cue a tipple from GSI’s Wine Tote. The neoprene skin insulates a removable soft 750ml carafe, with a double cap offering a wide opening to fill it and a narrower pourer. There’s even a pocket to carry optional wine glasses and you can record the vintage and corking date on the carafe label if that’s your form.
