Opinel No­mad cook­ing kit

R1 200, awe­some­tools.co.za Trust the French to make an out­door cook­ing kit with such piz­zazz. In­cluded are a pocket veg­etable peeler, a fold­ing knife with ser­rated 12cm blade, fold­ing corkscrew knife with 10cm blade, a cut­ting board and a dish towel that dou­bles as a travel pouch.

Pic­nic Spot ex­tended chair

R345, pic­nicspot.co.za Sim­i­lar to the chairs used at out­door cin­e­mas but without the weights, this one sup­ports you well if you sit with your legs straight out in front of you and pull the straps tight. It might look a bit strange but your back won’t com­plain. Un­clip the straps and you have a wa­ter­proof cush­ion for two.

Camp­mas­ter 4 Per­son pic­nic set

R549, camp­mas­ter.co.za

A cooler bag and pic­nic set com­bined, it has a wine cooler at­tached on one side and stor­age space on the other. In­cluded are cut­lery, plates and wine glasses for four and more than enough space in the cooler com­part­ment for a pic­nic ban­quet.

Vango Hawthorn ta­ble

R475, pic­nicspot.co.za

A dinky ta­ble, with a sur­face area sim­i­lar to the size of an A3 board, makes a big dif­fer­ence at a pic­nic when cut­ting cheese or rest­ing a wine glass. It’s very light (just 76g) and rolls up into the shape of a small baguette.

Volkano Mini Ba­zooka Squared

R399, cape­u­nion­mart.co.za

This portable speaker pro­vides ver­sa­til­ity while you’re on the move, switch­ing from USB, FM Ra­dio, SD Card, Aux and Blue­tooth modes. The vol­ume is im­pres­sive (the bass not so much), it has a bat­tery life of two to three hours, plus the strap makes it easy to carry. This South African brand is af­ford­able com­pared to oth­ers on the mar­ket.
