Hiking sports leader / camping enthusiast
“This tent is great for the summer season! The inner tent is mostly made from a gauze material, which helps to keep you cool. The flysheet is thicker than the previous model, which makes it more durable and wind-resistant. There’s also a window for increased ventilation. ”

“The inner tent is mostly made from a gauze material that helps to increase ventilation, and is better suited to the humid Hong Kong climate compared with the older model. Each side of the tent features a triangular ventilation opening, which significantly increases ventilation, despite the one-door design. This model also has an entrance that protects your belongings from the elements and frees up space inside the tent. ”
Ultra-lightweight FH500 hiking backpack: your mountain sports gear
If you don’t want to hike with sweat before reaching the destination, a lightweight backpack is a must. Made from an ultra-lightweight material, the FH500 hiking backpack weighs just 400g and helps to keep you comfortable on long hikes. The outer pocket is specially designed to store a helmet, which can be secured using the built-in elastic straps. The back pad, shoulder straps and waist belt feature plenty of ventilation holes to keep you cool and dry, even when you’re carrying a full bag of gear.

“The waist belt effectively distributes the weight away from your shoulders. It also has built-in pockets on each side for storing your phone and other belongings. The hole for the water tube is very narrow, which keeps the tube in place. Due to its slim design, I’d recommend filling the water bladder or usin
MH500 folding camping chair
Nothing is more enjoyable than sitting in front of a nice view with your best friends! The MH500 folding camping chair features a quick unfolding system with elastic strips inside the tubes. There is also a storage pocket, in which you can place a jacket for use as a pillow or headrest. Pair it with a camping table, and you’ve got everything you need for a perfect camping trip!
“The large surface area means that the chair is suitable for people of all sizes. The storage pocket is great for storing your jacket or other items of clothing, and you can secure the jacket to the top of the chair to make a pillow for extra comfort. The mesh pockets on either side can be used to store your phone or water bottle. ”
MH500 folding camping table
Don’t be fooled by its small size when folded (58 x 12 x 10 cm): just like the folding camping chair, the MH500 folding camping table can be unfolded to a large 58 x 58 cm table in seconds with a few gentle shakes. There is a large storage net under the table, as well as two side pockets for storing small items.
“The design is really sturdy – it’s not unstable like tables made from fabric. The quick folding frame is really easy to unfold, and the storage net is not too tight or too loose. The side pockets are great for storing books or snacks. ”
