The Travel Kit List: Durable Gear for Summer Festivals 2022


5. Cotopaxi Kapai 3L Waist Bag – Del Día

Repurposed in an effort to reduce landfill, each of these unique bags features vibrant fabric scraps, sourced from production waste from other companies’ textile lines. They’re comfortable to wear, with contoured back panels and useful internal pockets, including a padded pouch for storing delicate valuables such as sunglasses. £40.

6. Vango Tay 300 CLR Tent

Vango is an industry leader in durable tent construction, and this three-person dome example does the same. New for 2022, it is made from fabric scraps and polyester made from single-use recycled plastics. Durable and fully waterproof, the tent’s sleeping quarters shield its inhabitants from morning light, so luckily you can sleep in a little later too. £115.

7. AllBirds Wool Runner-up Mizzles

Could these be the ideal trainers for the festival? High tops will protect your ankles from accidental kicks in a crowd; they are waterproof, soft and flexible (ideal for dancing); and best of all, they’re machine washable and won’t lose their shape. The sneakers also come with an impressive set of eco-credentials: they’re made from ZQ-certified high-wellness merino wool, have a bio-based water shield, a sugar cane-based material midsole , an FSC certified natural rubber outsole and laces made from recycled bottles. £135.

8. LifeSaver Liberty Bottle

This 400ml water bottle with a built-in purification pump will help you stay hydrated on the go, without the need to buy bottled water. The Liberty bottle has the same advanced filtration system as the original eponymous LifeSaver product, but, being smaller and lighter, it’s more portable. The carbon disc cartridge can filter up to 2,000 liters of water over its lifetime, removing 99.999% of viruses and bacteria. £129.99.
