Apex Flex GTX 2.0 Jacket

Hiking is a fantastic way to keep fit, all year round. But in a waterproof, it can get rather sweaty – so a breathable ‘shell’ Gore-Tex jacket is essential kit. This one is ‘ultra-soft and impossibly dry’, according to trusted consumer reviews website T3, who made this its top waterproof for 2018.


Onewheel + XR

This unicycle/skateboard hybrid is a battery-powered mode of transportation that travels up to 18 miles on one charge, at up to 30mph. Riders press the ‘nose’ of the skateboard to accelerate, and lean with the toes and heels to turn. Not for the faint-hearted.

Give a gadget
