WatertoGo Water Filtration Bottles

At some point in an explorer’s life, you are going to experience a location or a situation where you are unable to access clean and safe drinking water. One of the best gifts you can buy for someone who loves the outdoors or travel, is a filtered water bottle. We have been using our Water to go filter water bottles for nearly two years now and cannot recommend them enough. For one, having a filter water bottle will save you money on buying bottles of water and reduce your plastic consumption. Alongside this it will also ensure that you are drinking clean and safe water.

The cost of a Water to go filter water bottle is £15-£30 depending on the size you want. You can also buy replacement filters which can be recycled and decomposed.

Although they are based in the UK, WatertoGo have a huge range of distributors all across the globe. Check out their full list of countries here, or simply shop online and bag yourself a 15% discount.

Bluefin Stand Up Paddleboards

There is an up and coming sport currently sweeping the globe, drawing outdoor enthusiasts from all over to the nearest source still water. This rather bizarre and totally amazing activity is, of course, Stand-up Paddleboarding, or as it’s otherwise known SUP.

Our Bluefin paddleboard has given us a great opportunity to get out in the water over the past year. It is a great way to exercise as well as being really good fun! Bluefin Sup’s have a huge selection of boards to choose from, whether you want to go out as a group or individually and some of the boards even have an attachable seat to allow you to turn your board into a kayak. Bluefin is also the proud producers of the number one inflatable SUP in 2019.


If you are new to the sport and do not have the best balance, the best thing about SUP is that you can start off kneeling down and gradually transition to standing up over time.

The board rolls away into a bag and comes with a pump. It also comes with a pump and a paddle that allows you to alternate your SUP to a kayak.
