We all know how important it is to keep hydrated and many of us are often seen carrying a heavy, insulated bottle around with us. At home, the bulk, the weight and the space they take up is of little importance, but when travelling, any item that can be packed flat and weigh nothing is a bonus.Explore
Any pair of gloves that has this poem on the tag attached wins my heart immediately – even before I try them on. The detailed fit with soft leather palms suitable for texting and the elasticized wrist with wrist zipper for optimal fit all lived up to the hype the poem.Explore
Looking for something simple to hang around my neck for my smart phone to take photos while travelling on, beside or under water, I tried out the EOTW Waterproof Case Dry Bag. It is universally waterproof for water skiing, canoeing, windersurfing, paddleboarding, snorkeling, or kayking.Explore
When packing for my next adventure, I always struggle with the extra space (albeit minimal) of my electric toothbrush, a longtime part of my daily routine. I was delighted to receive a very useful gift in my recent Christmas stocking, that met all Christmas stocking criteria in my family, including function.Explore
The biggest advantage of snorkeling is that it suits everyone, regardless of age, experience or ability to swim. I’ve only been snorkeling for the last seven years; I wish I’d discovered it sooner. Snorkeling is like strapping on magical glasses and seeing 3D movies of a most amazing show.Explore
We all have luggage tags that include the necessary contact information. Mine also has a Canadian flag on it.Explore
No matter how you discover the world, whether it be boat, plane, train or car, this rolling duffel takes the cake. I have been waiting for an excuse to buy one – my luggage is 11 years old – and now I have one. I’m heading to Scotland, jumping on a twin-engine plane and then hopping on a boat. From past experience, sailing and puddle-jumping, there is nothing more awkward than carting a hard case suitcase onto a small plane or a large boat. The traditional duffel did the trick, but a duffle bag on wheels takes to hassle of carrying luggage by the straps.Explore
This hat is a new favourite. Purchased at my local MEC store, I bought this hat on impulse as I needed a smaller hat for an upcoming trip to Arizona. I am a hat person and primarily wear a large brimmed Tilley hat, however, for some activities, you need to go small for a different function but style is still important to me, and this one has it.
This private-style, sun cap has a folding brim to fit into any small space. You can easily throw into a pocket, backpack or luggage bag for travel. Explore
I golf and sail around the world and have found myself in some pretty awkward situations where proper facilities cannot be found, are non-hygienic or very awkward or unsafe to use.
I am a big advocate of taking carry-on luggage only, however, it does get tricky when it comes to liquids. Even though there are as many as 10 containers of 100 ml each, I tend to use them all for creams, sun lotions, oil, cleansing cream and so on.Explore
