Products: Reviews Powerpax – Battery Holster
They say: The increased use of rechargeable batteries and the legal requirement to recycle batteries used within industry means that PowerPax are the ideal solution to safely store, transport and return waste or discharged batteries to base. Organisations who we supply for end use are currently reporting a
100% return rate for batteries issued to their workforce. GWA highlight: The Powerpax I’ve gone for are a glow-in-the-dark model, which retains its glowiness for up to 8 hours after a soak in some sunlight. I reckon that’s a great idea for campsites and finding things in the bottom of bags. If you’re of the subtler ilk, you can also get plain colours.
GWA summary: If you need to carry batteries, and don’t want them hanging around loose in your pack, then have a look at this cheap solution to storage and carrying them securely. It’s not for everyone, but for those who do ‘get it’; it’s well made and tough.

Gerber – Bear Grylls Ultimate Kit
They say: A survival kit built for hostile environments. Stick the
Ultimate Kit in your backpack and hope you never have to use it. If you do, it has everything you need to survive in even the toughest spots.
GWA highlight: Inside the kit is a thermal blanket, a sewing kit, a set of waterproof matches, a fire striker, tinder and another whistle. All of these things are very useful, and of the type of quality that is required for the outdoors. GWA summary: The Bear Grylls Ultimate Kit is straight out of the Dangerous Book for Boys. All you could ever need to survive, and more, which begs the question whether or not some of it is necessary at all… like the hideously low-quality torch.

Go-System – Explorer Lite Lantern
They say: A Lightweight, compact lantern (up to 80w). Auto-start piezo igniter with a straight glass chimney globe with easy access clip lid and carry / hanging chain. GWA highlight: The whole thing comes attached to quite a long and reasonably sturdy chain so you can hang it up without burning the roof of your tent or awning, and it gives off a good bright glow – more than enough for anything you
care to do at night. The adjuster makes it, you guessed it, adjustable, and it goes from bloody bright to bloody dim at a twiddle of your Mars bar fingers.
GWA summary: A rather pretty and reasonably compact piece of kit. Lightweight and fairly durable (my plastic lens had cracked down the middle but it hadn’t shattered so it was still fine), it should do okay wrapped in loo roll and slung into a backpack for a weekend.
Outwell – Comfort Chair
They say: No assembly required, the chair open and folds in seconds. It is made from high strength durable steel yet is
lightweight and easy to carry. GWA highlight: A tough, padded polyester (quick drying) cover is
shaped into a rather snug conical form which encourages you, despite its relaxing looks, to keep a good posture and this helps enormously at keeping you comfortable for long periods. GWA summary: A chunky, comfy chair for car camping which would serve well for use at home in the garden as well as a summer-long vacation. The Wife finds it incredibly comfortable, but me less so. Heavy and bulky, so not for carrying very far but built to last.
