After weeks of being restricted by what we can do and where we can go, many of us are chomping at the bit to be able to go camping in the outdoors again, when it is safe to do so of course. With that in mind, we have teamed up with some of the leading outdoor brands to bring you a great competition to win some essential gear for your next visit to a campsite, or trip out wild camping. From the Outdoor Research Helium Bivy to the Thermarest NeoAir Topo, Eagle Creek Migrate 130L wheeled duffle and Helinox Chair Zero, all these prizes will enhance your next journey into the outdoors. Let’s find out more about the prizes…
The Outdoor Research Helium Bivy is the Seattle-based company’s best-selling, award-winning, lightest shelter – and now it’s even better. The newly-revamped Helium Bivy is 14% lighter than its previous version (which itself was already light), and is ideal for multi-day minimalists who are looking to trade weight for speed, agility, and performance. Lightweight hikers and bikepackers love the new Helium for its refined footprint and reduced weight, and trust it for its feathery waterproof and breathable Pertex Shield+ fabric that doesn’t compromise on durability. A no-nonsense clamshell opening is sure to handle seasons of adventuring to come.
Whether you’re going on a casual road trip or expedition packing, the Eagle Creek Migrate Wheeled Duffel 130L will support all your gear with its heavy-duty construction. Carry it on your back, wheel it down a rocky path, check it at the airport, or tie it down on your vehicle. This duffle will take a beating and then some. Made from a tough 900D heavy-duty TPU material, the Migrate’s bathtub bottom, internal stormflap and water repellant RPVB coating (made from recycled windscreens, would you believe!) will ensure your gear stays dry when it’s damp outside.
The Helinox Chair Zero has a frame built with ultra-lightweight and exceptionally strong DAC aluminium alloy poles. This advanced pole technology was developed for expedition-level backpacking tents and is trusted and relied on by the world’s most discerning adventurers. Helinox is the only furniture brand to use DAC aluminium alloy poles. Hubs and joining components are moulded using a high-strength nylon resin that’s carefully engineered to achieve precise, solid, secure pole attachments. The tote and haul handles are connected using yoked webbing system for maximum strength bearing, and when not in use the duffel can be folded flat for compact storage.
When you’re looking for supreme comfort that doesn’t fill up your pack, the Thermarest NeoAir Topo brings three-inches (7.6 cm) of support in a pack-friendly size. The rectangular-shaped pad is built with Thermarest’s legendary WaveCore construction, creating a stable and warm pad that always has your back. The 2.3 R-value pad is great for three-season camping or backpacking when you’re enjoying the beauty of the outdoors. Available in several sizes, including a roomy regular wide, the Topo features the high-performance WingLock valve, which has three times the airflow rate of the classic valve, thanks to a larger opening and one-way inflation. Like all Thermarest pads, the NeoAir Topo is made in market to ensure quality and minimize environmental impact. The pad includes a breath-saving pump sack, compact stuff sack and field repair kit.
