Giveaway | Win Over £300 Worth of Outdoor Gear from ‘The Longest Line’
Up for grabs this week: the ultralight camping gear that helped Jenny Graham and Calum Maclean walk the longest line in the UK
You’ve heard us talk about The Longest Line by now. It’s the short film all about ambitious outdoor adventurers, Jenny Graham and Calum Maclean, and their maddening quest to walk across the longest straight line of pure wilderness in all of Britain. No matter what stood in their way, from thick shrubbery tugging at their shoes to steep, rocky climbs, the two marched for four days through the Cairngorms the Cairngorms running from the Pass of Drumochter to Corgarff (the longest straight line between two roads in the UK).
The film and their mammoth task was sponsored by Lyon, the UK based outdoors company who kitted them out for the trek. Calum and Jenny carried everything on their backs: food, tent, sleeping gear, and the key to their success was keeping everything as lightweight as possible. That’s where Exped came in, Lyon’s outdoor adventure brand which specializes in ultralightweight gear. They furnished the daring duo with their latest kit, and now we at Outdoors Magic have teamed up with Exped to run this giveaway competition. You could win a bundle worth over £300 of the very same gear that allowed this excellent, inspiring film to be made.
You Could Win:
Exped Lightning backpack 45lt in black
Ultra 1R sleeping mat
Fold Drybag Ul pack of 4
With the Exped Lighting Backpack, you’re never more than a second or two from your core gear. As well as having a space-efficient roll-top closure for quick access to the main compartment, you’ll also be able to whip out a water bottle or hiking poles from the side pockets, and lord know what else from the zip pockets on the hip belt.
A serious amount of Swiss precision engineering went into the Ultra 1R mat and Ultra pillow; both products are Exped’s latest iterations and seriously top-of-the-range bits of kit. Ultra-light, ultra-compact, they’ll take up a fraction of your backpack’s space. The pad is soft and comfortable, and it absorbs and insulates your body heat to keep you cozy during those icy nights. It’s also sustainably produced entirely from recycled polyester, making it carbon neutral.
Perhaps the most convenient feature of the mat is the included Schnozzel pump bag, so you can just plug in and inflate after a long day, rather than having to huff and puff for half an hour when it’s supposed to finally be your time to chill and rest.
The Ultra Pillow is also a no-fuss item; you can attach it to your mat and even adjust the height by delating it, so you can find the perfect balance and sleep like goldilocks when she found the bed that was just right (minus the impending bear attack… hopefully).
‘We were using brand new Exped stuff. I really appreciated how lightweight and good quality it was, you definitely want to keep as light as possible.’
The Fold Drybag UL is a crucial piece of gear that’ll have you thanking your lucky stars if the weather turns against you. Featherweight but still sturdy and featuring the reliable roll-top closure system, these packsacks are your last line of defense when it comes to keeping your kit, clothes, camera, and countless valuables dry and secure. The varied colours have the dual advantages of allowing you to organize your kit into neat categories and allowing you to look funky and fresh when you unpack at the campsite.
Overall, these four bits of kit all work wonders together, and they’ll easily make you the top dog on your next long-distance hike or wild camping adventure.
