MSR Trailshot Water Filter I.jpgMSR Trailshot Water Filter | £36

A great idea for a stocking filler, the Trailshot can be used to drink water straight from the source, much like a Lifestraw. Lightweight and designed to be stashed in a pocket this handy filter can be deployed quickly and even supply a small group with drinking water. You just need to pop the end of the house into the water source and pump the water (about 40 pumps) straight into your mouth or fill a bottle.

A soft and stretchy baselayer that is great for hiking, being on the piste or everyday wear. The Softtech extra soft stretch fabric wicks moisture away from the body and is quick drying. Lightweight and easy to layer this top is stretchy with an ergonomic fit that promises no rubbing and no piling. Comfortable, easy to pack and in a range of colours to brighten up any adventure.

This useful bit of kit is a great gift for any adventuring tech addict. Specifically designed to accommodate larger phone models, the pouch protects your tech from water, sand and dirt with an IPX7 rated construction, two track LocTop closure and secure fastening. You can also get full use out of the phone while it stays protected, thanks to a touch sensitive window. Gone are the days of phones being tucked away in dry bags; either wear the pouch around your neck using the lanyard, or use the four lash points to securely attach it to your gear.

The lightweight, moisture wicking nylon and polyester fabric gives a weightless and airy feel that is quick drying. The flat seams and anti-fold waistband ensures a comfortable fit that doesn’t chaft along with the mesh fabric that means they have an easy wash and go wearability. What more does a man need?
