Hit the outdoors this summer — in style and comfort.
1 OSPREY VOLT 60L RED R2 800
A lightweight pack that carries 15-20kg and utilises mesh tech to keep you dry on long slogs - and its adjustable frame will fit most frames and loads. It's made from bombproof fabric, in case you're hiking into Aleppo.
2 K-WAY KILIMANJARO 2-PERSON TENT R3 500
Aerodynamic, with a ripstop nylon flysheet, mosquito netting and reflective guy-ropes, this all-weather tent weighs just 3.5kg and has a waterhead of 3 000mm - so it won't weigh you down and will keep you dry
3 NIKON ACULON 8 X 42 BINOCULARS R1 899
The whole point of sightseeing is to, well, see the sights. Seaside or up high, see them all with this lightweight, ergonomic pair: their multi-coated glass lenses are simple to operate and easy to focus.
4 INOV-8 TRAIL TALON 275 R1 795
Say goodbye to blisters; these trail shoes have enough cover, grip and protection to last over the course of any multi-day hike. Expect a wider fit - perfect for serious distance over all kinds of terrain.
5 BLACK DIAMOND SPOT 4 R399
Hiking in the dark is one of life's true pleasures - until you get lost. Stay on track with this headlamp's Power Tap tech, which lets you adjust the brightness as you move, and packs 130 lumens of powerful light.
6 CAMPINGAZ BLEUET MICRO + VALVE CARTRIDGE STOVE R300
Stoves are usually a hack to pack and a mission to use when you need them most. But don't go leaving this one at home: it's ultralightweight, super compact and very convenient - especially its boil time of 5 minutes.
7 THE NORTH FACE ALEUTIAN WARM R2 150
Insulated with recycled materials, this roomy sleeping bag comes with zips along the footbox and short side - and a draft collar to keep the wind out.
