If you’re looking to set out on an adventure, there are certain things you need. A solid pair of boots, for one. A map always helps. And maybe a good book to pass the time.
Then comes the more extravagant gear — the items you could definitely do without, but why would you? So, from an explorer’s camera and smashing bottle of whisky, to a limited edition motorcycle, we’ve discovered the best items to supplement — and up the luxury factor — of your next adventure.
In the field: Leica M10-P ‘Safari’ Camera
In 1957, Leica released their first olive green camera. It was designed and constructed for use in the field and soon garnered a worldwide reputation as a robust and reliable companion even under most extreme of conditions.
Since then, the brand’s olive green editions have become the most coveted releases for collectors and enthusiasts — and the M10-P Edition Safari is the newest addition to this range. Snap it up.

Raise a dram: Glenmorangie Allta Private Edition No.10
Released to mark the 10th anniversary of Glenmorangie’s Private Edition series, the Allta is a limited edition single malt. The word itself means ‘wild’ in Scots Gaelic — and it’s a whisky that lives up to that name.
The Allta has been made using a previously-undiscovered strain of local yeast growing on the barley near the Glenmorangie distillery, and has a biscuity nose, light menthol and zesty citrus flavours as a result.

Two-wheeled fury: Royal Enfield Interceptor ‘Glitter and Dust’ Edition
It may sound like a David Bowie song, but the latest release from Royal Enfield — the ‘Glitter and Dust’ edition — is a two-wheeled sight to behold.
With a highly-polished petrol tank, this bike is classically styled and visually beautiful. And the new engine, Royal Enfield’s most forward-looking yet, ensures that the Interceptor roars as sweetly as it shines.

Hit the waves: Wally 48 Wallytender Cruiser
Wally created the original iconic tender — and this is a restyled version of that very boat. With fold-down bulwark sections, a large interior volume, galley unit on deck, plenty of storage and special anchoring system operated at the touch of a button, this is as high-tech as tenders come.
And, thanks to a propulsion package of two new Volvo IPS 650 engines (totalling 1020 Hp) with a top speed of 38 knots, it’s one of the fastest, too.

King of Cool: James Dean Framed Print
Taken during a break in filming for the film Giant in October, 1955 in Marfa, Texas, this photo of James Dean is possibly the coolest piece of artwork you could find to hang on your wall.
The movie was the last of Dean’s three films as the leading man, and earned him an Academy Award nomination. This collectible, one of 495 printed to order on Fuji crystal archive paper, is numbered and certified, and comes encased inside a hand-made solid wood black frame that’s ready to hang.

Slice and dice: Blenheim Forge Stainless Clad Slicer
Every discerning home chef needs a good knife — and there are no better than the British-made Blenheim Forge. Great for slicing and carving, this blue super steel cored knife has a forged finish, a stepped grind and an edge thinned to a micro-bevel for exceptional cutting performance.
Don’t know what any of that means? Neither do we — but it cuts like a dream.

Spark up: Cire Trudon Abd El Kader Candle
Named for Abd El Kader, a political and military leader born in Algeria, this candle is described as ‘a gust of freedom blowing from the Mascara coast and the mountains’. Translated, that means scents of fresh mint, hot ginger, pepper, tea and tobacco — a lovely ambience just waiting to be lit.
