An inflatable tent? No problem! Do you want more? Here are 12 useful companions for that action-packed outdoor adventure on land or sea
1. THE MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE

Futuristic base

Granted, you’re going to get some pretty stunned looks at the campsite with this Heimplanet Mavericks tent. However the inflatable shelter is really intended for extreme conditions, like at base camp as part of a serious expedition.

The sturdy polyester construction can withstand winds of up to 180kph thanks to its special geodesic structure.

But added protection doesn’t mean more hassle: the 13m² tent, with room for up to 10 people, can be put up by a single person in a matter of minutes.

Don’t fear extreme winds or weather. This three-layer Montane Alpine Pro GORE-TEX  jacket is both waterproof and breathable. Plus the hood is designed to fit perfectly over any helmet.

Downhill racer

The Specialized S-Works Demo 8 is the ultimate piece of kit for any bike park or downhill course. It has a carbon frame, exclusive Öhlins shocks and a build that’s designed for you to go at it from the off. If you’re slow, don’t blame the bike.

Beach beauty 

Sailors, anglers and swimmers will love the Garmin Quatix 3. A 3-axis compass, altimeter and barometer come as standard and there’s also a fish-catch counter, tack assist and anchor watch.

Plus the smartwatch is a great companion when you’re running, cycling or hiking on land, thanks to multisport functions. And it’s an activity tracker, too. Essentially, you’ll never need to take it off.
