Perfect for making a sturdy and comfortable bed in the trees, the SlothCloth™ Hammock range from UST is the ultimate companion for camping, backpacking and outdoor survival.

The SlothCloth™ Hammock 1.0 weighs just 624g and measures 243cm x 127cm providing ample room for one person, while the 2.0 model at only 730g and measuring 322cm x 198cm, is perfect for those who prefer a little extra room or to accommodate a second person. The SlothCloth™ Bug Hammock has the addition of a secure bug net to keep the mini-beasts out with an easy to use dual-sided zip. The range is available at www.whitbyandco.co.uk.

Princeton Tec ReFuel Head Torch


Illuminate runs, rides or camping trips with the newly updated 200 lumen Princeton Tec ReFuel Head Torch. The popular model has been upgraded with an array of enhanced features including surface mounted LEDs, a painstakingly re-engineered battery door featuring sturdier components with a larger lip for easier access, as well as the ability to fine tune light output with the new dimmer. A single arm bracket makes directing the light effortless and reliable once on the wearer’s head, while the large, easy to find and operate button controls on/off and with a simple press and hold, dims the light to the preferred output. With a choice of grey and black or green and grey, the Princeton Tec ReFuel Head Torch is available at www.whitbyandco.co.uk.

Princeton Tec Bot Head Torch


The smallest member of Princeton Tec’s ‘The Family Series’, the children’s Bot head torch is designed with the same ergonomic features, ruggedness and reliability of its adult counterparts, but with a fun and bright twist. Featuring two ultra-bright white LEDs and offering nine hours burn time, the 30 Lumen Bot is made from durable plastic, has a sturdy single arm bracket and large push button, enabling smaller adventure seekers to operate it independently.

For peace of mind, the battery compartment on the Bot screws shut to ensure that the batteries will not be accidentally accessed by little fingers, while the headstrap is equipped with a safety buckle that will release under excessive pressure. Small, simple and ready for action, the Bot is available in a choice of White and Pink or Lime Green at www.whitbyandco.co.uk.

from £14.95

Diminutive yet strong, the Heroclip Mini is the smallest offering in Heroclip’s re-imagined range of versatile gear clips. Made from solid aircraft grade machine-cut aluminium and composite steel, the device provides a trusty hanger for smaller items such as bags and toiletry kits from towel racks, lights from a tent or a tree branch, or tiny speakers from a wire shelf – its compact size means it can be slipped into a pocket, pack, bag or purse to provide secure support for items weighing up to 18kg.
