Anti-Shock Hiking Poles

Anti-Shock Hiking Poles

If you have never walked with poles you should give it a try. it is amazing how much they can help you both in balance but also support you especially when walking up or down hill.
These poles come with several baskets so are useful for a variety of terrains. I will be taking them on my next skiing trip. They were also fully adjustable between 63cm and 135cm so will suite most people.and are lightweight aluminium.

The  poles feel very well made and the slide mechanism feels quality and moves freely. There is a scale on the poles so that you can adjust them to the same length every time. The locking mechanism works very well and feels secure, it used a cam and lever system which is a lot easier than a twisting system used on some poles. Once they are locked off they feel solid.
I like the feel of the handles they are sculptured to fit the hand and with the adjustable the wrist straps, they feel secure to use.
The poles are supplied with 2 baskets (snow and trekking), these are simply screwed on the poles and feel very strong and secure once in place.
Overall I like the feel of these poles they have now been handed to one of our team for them to test, i will update you with his feedback in due course..

Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

When I first handled this speaker I was impressed with the quality of it. You are supposed to be able to connect to a Bluetooth device very easily, I normally find that it is never that easy; however I was surprised to find that it linked to my iPhone straight away and was up and running in minutes. The quality of the sound is very good for such a small device. I was more concerned about it being too loud and disturbing other campers so volume is not a problem.I have used it on many occasions whilst camping and it has not failed me. I did manage to leave it out overnight and it got wet but this did not effect its performance.It is supplied with a USB cable to charge it so can easily be charged it the car or even one of the portable power packs.

As it is small and light it can easily slip into a bag or pocket for your camping trip, perfect for a sing song around the camp fire.
