1. PELI 7600 TORCH
Don’t be caught out in the wilds. One must-pack device is a torch. Peli is known for its cases that can withstand any abuse while protecting delicate equipment. They’ve also put that ruggedised knowledge to a range of torches. My choice is the 7600 LED torch. It has three modes, as well as three light colours. Thanks to its 944 lumens beam that can reach 255 metres, you’ll be able to see and be seen. The rechargeable battery has a 29-hour run time. Furthermore, it is IPX8 rated for water and dust proofing.
