The North Face Base Camp Duffel 90l (2014)

£145.00

TNF’s Base Camp is a long-proven contender for the duffel bag crown, and to many it’s the epitome of what a big-capacity outdoor bag should be: double-stitched, easily compressible and with a tough nylon build. This recent update is a special edition, with a few extra touches (and a heftier price tag). These tweaks consist of an updated colour palette, ...

Eagle Creek Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL (2014)

£130.00

It’s all very well having a vast 128 litre capacity, but how do you lug around all that resulting weight? The Eagle Creek Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL – a hybrid design – has found a way: it takes the lightweight simplicity of a bare duffel and fits a sturdy pair of wheels around a reinforced bottom. The result is a ...

Vango Dry Holdall 90 (2014)

£75.00

If you’re expecting serious weather, and know your bag’s going to be exposed to it, the Vango Dry Holdall 90 could be just what you need. Thanks to welded joins, a roll-top design and a coated waterproof nylon build, this lies somewhere between a duffel and a dry bag, and is actually aimed at sailing and rafting activities as much ...

Lifeventure Ceduna 90 (2014)

£130.00

Wheeled outdoor luggage doesn’t come much neater than the Lifeventure Ceduna 90. To start with, the entire bag is made from durable Cordura fabric, which (even if you don’t know anything about its qualities) feels rugged and resilient from the off. Complemented by the extremely sturdy grab handles at the top and bottom, and the grippy – and lockable – ...

Arc’teryx 100l Carrier Duffel 90 (2014)

£120.00

Always a stylish choice, Arc’teryx’s 100l Carrier Duffel is a masterclass in simplicity. Weighing a feathery 680g, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s simply too insubstantial to be of use. But you’d be bang wrong. The waterproof ripstop fabric delivers a great weight-to-toughness ratio, while the taped seams and subtly weather-resistant flaps and zips offer protection from the elements. Four ...

Thule Chasm (2014)

£110.00

Perhaps best known for roof racks, Swedish brand Thule now makes outdoor storage bags, and the result is this tough-looking, great-quality duffel – which comes with a 25 year warranty. The design is simple enough, with a big ‘wide mouth’ opening, sturdy grab handles and compression straps; while the stormflaps and waterproof zip (on the outer pocket) promise great weather ...

Quechua A200 (2014)

£20.00

Quechua is currently creating some pretty big waves in the UK thanks to its expanding range of decent-quality outdoor kit at affordable prices. This self-inflating mat, although the bulkiest featured in our review, falls right into both categories. Serious wild campers will be put off by the size and weight (1234g) because it’s really too big to carry in your ...

Klymit Inertia X Frame (2014)

£85.00

The Klymit Inertia X Frame squeezes into a stuffsack no bigger than a can of Coca-Cola, weighs roughly the same as a standard pair of mountain gloves and takes less than 10 seconds to inflate. The 12 carefully positioned holes dotted across the mat are obvious weight savers and also create warm pockets between your body and the floor to ...

Multimat Discovery (2014)

£20.00

If you’re really into saving weight and money, and can handle the sneers from technology-obsessed walking buddies, you really can’t beat a classic closed-cell foam mat. No need to worry about spare pumps, self-inflating devices or repair kits; you simply unroll it, chuck it on the ground and go to sleep. The Multimat Discovery is made from high-quality polyolefin foam ...

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Trekker Regular (2014)

£125.00

There really isn’t a lot to dislike about the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Trekker Regular. It’s lightweight (512g), fits into a barely noticeable 20x10cm stuffsack, and is so comfortable it almost feels like a portable bed. Light sleepers may be put off by the crinkling sound it generates if you move around in the night, but most people would never notice it. ...

Vango Ultralite Mat Full (2014)

£40.00

If you want to take the next step up from the bargains on offer from Multimat (Discovery) and Quechua (A200), this Duke of Edinburgh’s Award-recommended mat offers fantastic value for money. It fully self-inflates so won’t leave you gasping for breath before bed, and it packs down almost as small as the Exped Downmat. The compromise is the depth of ...

Exped Downmat UL 7 M (2014)

£150.00

The Exped Downmat is by some distance the most expensive option we looked at, but this really is a case of getting what you pay for. It’s slightly heavier than the NeoAir Trekker, but makes up for those extra 150 grams with some impressive extra features. Firstly, it contains 170g of goose down that provides extra insulation from the cold, ...

£35.00

The Pure Hydration AquaPure Traveller allows you to collect water and then drink it safely when you’re ready. The filter is screwed onto the top of the bottle and can be replaced when it reaches the end of its service life, thereby preventing the bottle itself having to be thrown away. Like other modern filters, there are no chemicals needed ...

Platypus GravityWorks 2.0L Complete Kit (2013)

£85.00

While most water treatment systems require you to suck water or pump water, the Gravity Works system takes advantage of gravity to draw the water through the filter. The Complete Kit version featured here includes a pump-free filter, a 2 litre Dirty Reservoir, a 2 litre Platypus Bottle for the treated water, plus hoses and caps that allow the hoses ...

The popular General Ecology First Need XL is now available in this new Elite version, which boasts an extra port to allow easier cleaning of the internal filter. The unit is also more durable than before. The general system of use remains unchanged though, with a filter inside the unit removing contaminants and debris from the water to make it ...

£86.00

The Adventurer Opti is one of a long line of devices from Steripen that use ultraviolet (UV) light to treat water. Delivered in the form of a glowing glass wand, this disrupts the DNA function of microbes so they can’t reproduce and make you ill. At just 103g and around 15.5cm long, the unit is light and compact.

Drinksafe Waterstraw (2013)

£29.00

The Drinksafe Waterstraw is the lightest filter system available and is extremely well-priced, so it’s ideal for stashing in your rucksack for emergencies. It’s also extremely easy to use, because you simply remove the caps from each end, place one end in the water, then suck through the filter from the other end with your mouth. Once your thirst is ...
