Winter’s arrival got most of us feeling that staying indoors and binge-watching series is what this season is for. Well, what you might have not known is that in winter… traveling gets especially fun.

When life gives you… rain

You’d think that rain is the type of thing to avoid when choosing a travel destination, but you’ll be surprised how a good rain jacket can take you places and totally change your mind-set. Rain is the central part of the experience! Check out how Henk Brand, owner at The Secret Adventurer blog, didn’t let the rain stop him exploring the beautiful Cape Town in winter, in our Orion 3-in-1

Cosy up outside

It’s cold, snowing… what a great time for a camping trip! But a winter camping trip requires a little more thought and planning than your average summer excursion. You want clothes that keep you warm while chilling with friends in the mornings and especially in the evenings. The Trailblazers Hiking Club put our Socho to the test during their weekend camping trip in Tankwa this June.

For the spontaneous traveller

Having a good pair of lightweight, easy-to-pack, slick-looking boots is a must for your spontaneous weekend getaways. The lovely Michka, from @acoupleandatripod certainly got hers. And as far as we know, loving her new pair of V-Lite Wild-Life boots. For us, a great outdoors experience should always be within reach.


From trail to town

For a moment, forget the beach and mountains. Some of our best adventures have been in the concrete jungle. We all love city breaks and urban adventures and @nhlanhlanhlapo showed us how to be Travel Ready for a day out on the town.  Our classic P.C.T have been in the market for over 20 years and is still a favourite for our all-round travellers.


You’ll always need some space for…

Especially when travelling with the fam, a medium-sized day-pack is a must for any adventure. Ask the experts of family travel; Cape Town based bloggers and tour services, The Travel Manuel, who used our Camina 25L daypack for all their travelling needs during the Garden Route Walking Fest.
