A good water bottle is probably the most important element of travelling. Brita is the leading brand in filtered water, so travelling with a Brita water bottle means you can be sure that you are drinking the purest water. The filtration system reduces chlorine whilst maintaining the minerals. That means you can have great tasting water on the go. The bottle is durable, BPA free and comes with an adjustable mouthpiece for comfort. Although the MicroDisc Filters need changing every once in a while, this bottle will last for years to come.
OK, so we got a little bit excited when we stumbled across this potential Christmas gift. There are so many Bluetooth speakers on the market these days, it’s hard to choose just one, but Fusion has taken it a step further. This speaker floats, on water! You can even attach it to your SUP with the accessory pieces - take your tunes with you on the water. It still pumps out a good sound with its 2.5” 40 Watt custom-designed directional speaker system. It’s party time this holiday season with Fusion’s StereoActive.
