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.

Along with portability, we look for rechargeable, lightweight and where possible solar lighting products. Gear that is made from more natural materials or come from sustainable origins.

Fireflower firepit comes in handy during COVID-19

Fireflower - a portable bbq, firepit or brazier for one or for many. The COVID-19 experience has been interesting for most and different for everyone.  Being nature lovers, it’s been difficult not being able to venture out and enjoy the outdoors.  In Level 4 we were able to do exercise within our neighbourhood but not venture further than that. Then in Level 3 we were able to go slightly further but that didn’t involve the beach, lake or some of our favourite walking tracks.  The fact that we’re pleased to be able to visit some our favourite spots again is...

Sunshades with a difference.

Our range of sunshades, beach tents, sun shelters (or whatever you wish to call them) have been hand-selected and are truly a game-changer for me! Normally I don’t spend all that long at the beach because I simply can’t handle the sun. I wilt in the sun. I’m fair and turn 50 shades of red without proper sun protection. This means I’ve tried a lot of sun shelters in the past. We usually bought a new one every year hoping it would be different but once I discovered these sun shades 3 years ago, I have never look back. It...

Let there be light!

If you’ve been following my previous blogs for Lifestyle Gear NZ and my activities on social media you’ll know that my family and I enjoy nature and getting amongst it as much as possible.  In doing so means being out in the elements and having equipment to assist with that makes all the difference. When introduced to the Luci Outdoor Solar Lantern 2.0 I was sceptical of its capabilities. But I was pleasantly surprised when using it for the first time and now it’s a staple in the car and ready on hand for any night-time adventures. We’ve used the lantern...

I thought I’d died and gone to heaven…….

I bent my knees, slid my bottom in place and shimmied my way to rest my back on the mesh.  Then let out an "ah" and wondered where this piece of equipment had been all my life. TreePod - a great alternative to a hammock or hanging chair and a unique present for that significant other. There is something about floating in the air in the outdoors.  When you have a busy life, there is nothing like, lying back and just simply pondering. Since then I’ve been constantly thinking of where I can hang my 6 foot Cabana TreePod. Mostly, it’s been...

Banquet Summer Picnic Table

It is a well known fact that Kiwis love spending time in the outdoors. Especially during the warmer months when we like to entertain with family and friends. Whether it be for a BBQ or a beach picnic, at the park or down on the rivers edge. Outdoors are engrained in our lives and the Banquet Summer Picnic Table is ideal to keep your food and drinks safe and easily accessible. Out of reach of creepy crawlies or dirt/sand, all the while keeping your beverages upright that prevent your special drop from being spilt. Our deluxe folding Banquet Summer Picnic...

Come Along & See Us…..

We welcome you to come along to the Home & Garden Expo's that we are displaying at throughout the year. These expo's and shows are perfect to come look, touch and experience the world of difference these simple but practical ideas can do for you. If you're looking to relax you have to try the TreePod, great as a glamping alternative also. Picnicking, we’ve got you sorted with a wide range of recycled mats and gorgeous wine tables. If you're at the beach then Otentik sunshades (sunshade windsail with sandbags) are a necessity. Outdoor evenings spent in the backyard, beach or...

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 blanket / 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...

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...

Recycled Plastic Mat – Manufacturing Process

Our Recycled Plastic Mats are designed by genuine artists and manufactured in a process that uses discarded plastic waste. A great learning tool for early child care centres (kindergartens, playcentres, day cares, etc), schools, Kapa Haka groups, Kohanga Reo and community groups, or even just everyday people who love the outdoors and care about Mother Earth. These artists are are hired/commissioned to create the designs that you see on our mat collection. Each of the designs in our Cultural Recycled Plastic Mat collection can be translated into a story that has meaning. Recycled Mats only works with designers who are from the...

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 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...
