Portable Gear – the key to camping & glamping equipment lists!

Portable gear is a necessity. With more modern technology there is no reason why we should not enjoy the outdoors in style. Especially with the latest most innovative gear/equipment/products available.

At Lifestyle Gear we continuously search the globe for the latest outdoor gear available. Gear that suits Kiwis lifestyles and environments. All the while trying to ensure it has an element of sustainability.

Mandala Recycled Mat, TreePod, Summer, Picnic, Table

I’ll let you into a secret……

I’ll let you into a secret…… The trick to a perfect picnic is not the food, nor is it your surroundings.  Of course good food and weather is a bonus. But it’s ultimately the company you surround yourself. Whether it be friends, family or loved ones, it’s an absolute must to have a great picnic mat too. Before being introduced to our Mandala Design Recycled Mat we would either use a blanket or a picnic rug with a waterproof backing.  Neither of these solutions provided preventative measures from sand and transporting it into the car.  With the Mandala Mat a simple [...]

Meet My All-time Favourite Pop-up Sunshade

Over what has to been one of the best summers we’ve had in New Zealand, I’ve had several people approach me about this ultimate shade and it is true that my sunshade has been on plenty of interesting outings this spring and summer.  The question is, do I rate this sunshade?  I. Love. This. Sunshade. After a rainy winter, we were desperate to get to the beach and enjoy some sunshine. Our first opportunity was at the Mount in the middle of October.  Mount Maunganui is one of our favourite spots in the country and this particular weekend the wind [...]

relaxation Sensory Swing, Special Needs & people with disabilities school

Sensory Swing for those with Special Needs or Disabilities

Whilst at various markets and expos throughout the North Island, we had been approached & spoken to several special needs teachers and occupational therapists. Each and everyone stated the TreePod has numerous benefits. Especially as a relaxation or sensory swing for those with special needs or who have multiple disabilities. They could see the need for them in their workplace – a school. Or even to help parents out within their own homes. Due to the high level of interest we decided to look into this further. Thus attending the “Navigate Your Future Disability Expo” in Palmerston North in May. During [...]

Not Just Another Hanging Tent – Your Own Personal Glamping Experience

TREEPOD – NOT JUST ANOTHER HANGING TENT TreePod started out in 2015 with the idea for a hanging tree tent designed for children. But lucky for us they have now created the adults version and a new style of glamping gear & glamping accessories – thus the Cabana & the Lounger daybed / tree house were born.   For those that love their view uninterrupted, the Cabana is for you! With its mesh panel sides this allows a 360 degree view and airflow. Great for those hot humid nights, with the extra benefit that star gazing, just got comfy. The Lounger has the [...]

MAX PUMP – A tiny but powerful inflation pump

Convenient, lightweight, powerful, compact, rechargeable inflation air pump. Our children love to take inflatable toys to the pool. Inevitably we cram one pre-inflated toy in the car and quickly close the boot. Hopefully not puncturing it in the process. The Max Pump has assisted us in ensuring we can get more than just one toy in the car. Eliminating the nervous boot closure! All the while providing a relative peaceful swim with enough inflatables for all. The Max Pump is a great invention by the guys at Flextail. They have created an innovative device that is small enough to slot straight into [...]

Otentik Sun shade, beach sun shelter, easy set up beach tent

Otentik Sunshade and Sun Shelter

We were fortunate enough to spend a week in Fiji early June and took our easy set up Otentik sun shade / beach sun shelter. A holiday we had booked nearly a year before. One where we were looking forward to some nice weather. With a chance to absorb some rays we spent the majority of our time at the beach, snorkeling, kayaking and even tried paddle boarding. But it wouldn’t be the same without an Otentik sun shade to create your own space on the beach. We loved the warmer climes but needed some sun shelter while kicking back [...]
