If you’re planning to hit the beach with your kids this year they’ll need footwear that can handle sand, salt water, sunshine and sweaty little toes – and the Keen Seacamp II CNX sandals are perfect.
With Sonny tipping the scales at 2 stone I’ve never needed a good rucksack carrier more, and the Deuter Kid Comfort II is right up there with the best. It’s lightweight, comfortable, easy to load, and easy to carry.
The insulated Primus Trailbottle Vacuum keeps your drinks hot or cold in any temperatures, making it the perfect piece of kit for thirsty little explorers.
Love paddling in rivers and lakes but don’t want the hassle of transporting a heavy canoe? Then the Sevylor Madison inflatable kayak is the boat for you.
I generally gauge the quality of baby outdoor gear by the amount of noise Sonny makes. If he’s loud and angry, it sucks. If he’s quiet and content, it’s a huge thumbs up. And happily the Isbjörn Cozy fits into the second category.
The Little Life Arc 2 travel cot trebles up as a lightweight portable bed, convenient baby day prison, and outdoor sun shield, with the added bonus that it packs down into a small backpack for easy transportation. A 3-in-1 masterpiece!
If your baby still isn’t walking but loves being outside on cold days, Stonz booties are perfect for keeping their feet warm on winter adventures.
Stable, safe and packed with a mind-boggling number of useful features, the Osprey Poco AG lets us walk longer distances and explore more exciting places. And does the handy job of sending Sonny to sleep!
A lovely addition to our family garden and packs down small enough to take on almost every adventure, the Grand Trunk Double Parachute hammock is an absolute bargain for outdoorsy families.
I’ve always considered anything over £100 to be expensive, but the Mountain Buggy Juno baby carrier is an absolute bargain for active dads.
