Top 10 | The Most Exciting New Gear We’ve Spotted This Month

From new drops to coming-soon releases, here’s the weird, wacky and cutting-edge gear that has caught our eye this month

We receive a lot of press releases here at Outdoors Magic, showcasing brands’ latest items and upcoming seasonal lines. Amidst all the marketing junk, there’s always a few gems and quirky new releases. The kind of stuff that you’d buy your outdoorsy friend for their birthday. Here’s some of the fun new bits and bobs that piqued our interest this March.

1,001 Walking Tips by Paul Besley

Price: £20

More Info:

Released on March 3, this book does exactly what it says on the tin – provides 1,001 navigation, fitness, gear and safety tips for hillwalkers, trekkers and urban adventurers.


Dometic Cool-Ice WCI 33

Price: £185

More Info:

Featuring a new range of seasonal colourways (such as this bright ‘mango’ option), this lightweight and efficient Dometic ice box is made from thick refrigeration-grade foam insulation and has a unique labyrinth seal design. It will keep ice frozen for several days, so, good luck trying to test how long it can keep a beer bottle cold without giving into temptation and drinking it.


Gossamer Gear Crotch Pot

Price: $19

More Info:

Described as ‘the ultimate fuel-less ultralight backpacking stove’, this pouch allows you to heat up cold-soaked camping meals with the warmth of your crotch (yes, you heard correctly!). Sounds a bit, well, utterly gross – but some people will go to extreme lengths to shave off a few extra grams.


Modibodi 7/8 Recycled Active Leggings (Period-Proof Legwear)

Price: £55

More Info:

Billed as the UK’s number one leak-proof period apparel brand, Modibodi has re-launched its fast-selling Recycled 7/8 Active Leggings with an updated design. The leggings feature an “innovative floating absorbent gusset” which is invisible from the outside and has special moisture-wicking material to keep you “cool and dry with a butterfly soft feel”.


Finisterre Biosmock

Price: £250

More Info:

Finisterre are rightly proud of this jacket’s end-of-life solution. The material harmlessly biodegrades in both land and sea environments at an advanced biodegradation rate compared to conventional polyester, and can also be repaired, re-purposed or recycled through Finisterre’s Lived & Loved programme – helping to advance the “circular economy” of outdoor clothing.


Saucony Peregrine 12

Price: £130

More Info:


Named after the fastest bird on earth, the agile Peregrine 12 is stripped down for blistering speeds and “comfortable free-flying across the trails”, as Saucony put it.


Tropicfeel Monsoon

Price: £85

More Info:

Apparently the most funded shoe ever on Kickstarter, TropicFeel’s range of trainers are described as the ultimate travel shoe and a sneaker with 4-in-1 versatility: providing the benefits of aqua shoes, the comfort of sports shoes, the technical outsole materials of hiking shoes, and the casual style of your favourite daily pieces.


BAM 73 Zero Running Jacket

Price: £95

More Info:

Wind-resistant, water-repellent finish, packable, quick-drying and lightweight, this new running jacket from eco brand BAM Clothing is made from recycled polyester – but the real innovation is that it’s fully recyclable too. At the end of its life, simply return to BAM and the jacket will be transformed back into polyester fibres by specialist textile recycler, Project Plan B, and re-knitted into a new garment.


La Sportiva Trango Trek GTX

Price: £185

More Info:

For Spring/Summer 2022, this popular and well-respected boot gets a re-design. Gone is the welded TPU upper covering, now replaced by a simpler fabric construction but retaining the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort lining, 3D Flex System ankle support, dual-density midsole, toe and heel rands, and Vibram Mulaz sole with smooth ‘climbing zone’ under the toe. Out soon.


SHAKA Snug Bootie

Price: £190

More Info:

Like a futuristic fusion of a down hut slipper and a rugged hiking boot, this bootie features a rounded toe, adjustable canvas webbing, branded tab, breathable antibacterial insole, and 3M Thinsulate insulation. It might be more ‘gorpcore’ than practical, but it’s certainly eye-catching.
