Gear: 6 must-have items for adventurers

Whether you're planning to head for the hills, hit the beach or take to the water, these pieces of kit will come in handy on your next trip

An Xscape wetsuit from Aqualing

Wetsuit

Aqualung's new XSCAPE collection is 100% neoprene-free, instead made of an eco-friendly natural rubber. The 4+3mm XSCAPE wetsuit is designed for diving in warm water. The suit also features recycled, quick-drying fleece around the torso area to provide additional warmth.

Bags

Timberland and Eastpak have collaborated on a new eco-friendly collection of rugged bags and accessories. All main fabrics in the collection are made from 100% recycled materials ensuring a conscious yet highly durable bag. Highly functional, they’re keenly priced too. 

Speaker

Bang & Olufsen's Beosound Explore is a new pocket-sized travel speaker. It may be just 12.4cm tall, but it offers an incredibly powerful sound experience. Designed with the outdoors in mind, it is lightweight, dust and water proof. It even features a carabiner so you can hang it from your rucksack. 

Knife

Waterhaul specialises in recycling fishing debris and ocean plastics, with a mission to clean up our seas. This new pocketknife is made from recycled fishing nets collected from beaches around Cornwall, and is perfect for everything from beach cleaning missions to cutting baguettes on your picnics. 

Walking poles

Komperdell's Carbon FXP Cloud Foldable Poles are an astonishing 173g and pack to an extremely small 45cm. Unique to Komperdell, the poles are self-deploying, yet despite the low weight remain bombproof. They can be precisely adjusted to suit exact needs and come with a three-year warranty. 

Watch

Marloe Watch Company's Haskell Global is the first in a series of releases from this British company to highlight environmental issues and support relevant causes. Aimed at the ‘modern-day explorer,’ the watch is robust. The monochromatic watch face features a subtle radiating map grid and glow-in-the-dark hands.
