TISSOT T-TOUCH CONNECT SOLAR

As if the Swiss needed yet another thing to brag about? Let us introduce the next evolution in Tissot’s iconic T-Touch watch collection.

The Connect Solar T-Touch contains tiny solar sensors on the watch dial to capture light that is stored in an accumulator. This is a watch even Greta Thunburg would feel comfortable wearing.

HP CHROMEBOOK x2 11"

Seasoned roadtrippers know how hard it can be to work while you’re on the move.

Laptops can also be clunky when you’re either in a swag or laying in the boot of your car with your back seats folded down, and all you want to do is catch the next episode of Succession. The new HP Chromebook is light enough to take everywhere you go, with 10-hours of battery life and 4G LTE to keep you connected even in the depths of a Bavarian forest. This is the new go-to hardware for seasoned travellers, Kirianna and Lachlan from @rileys_travels who are on their second lap of Australia in their 1962 vintage kombi with their two young children.

LEXUS UX300e

Just a decade ago you’d need to be a diamond dealer or Elon Musk’s cousin to own a luxury electric car. Especially one you might still feel comfortable telling your mates about.

Today, the Lexus UX 300e fully battery powered mini-SUV is not just brag-worthy, it can also travel up to 360 kilometres on a single charge. Don’t just look good in this new ride, do the planet a favour and buy one. You know you probably owe it one after driving your lead filled Holden Torana as a teenager.

AUSTRALIAN AGAVE PROJECT

If there’s one thing Australians and Mexicans have in common, it's our love of good booze.

So it was only fitting that a group of entrepreneurs and investors from Melbourne decided that 2022 was the best time to start their own version of an Australian-made tequila. The Australian Agave Project is still very much in its infancy, but the group - which is part of ASX listed company Top Shelf International - have already started cultivating Australia’s only Agave spirit farm on the Whitsundays in Queensland, just between Bowen and Airlie Beach. The growing conditions on the farm actually mirror Mexico’s Jalisco exactly, which is located 20 degrees North. Tequila Sunrise, anyone?

THONGS

Thongs (for your feet) are a ubiquitous part of Australian life. We all own a pair. We’ve also all busted a few plugs at a music festival or the local pub.

Thongs™ is a new brand of the iconic footwear created in Australia which guarantees a better quality and more durable product. They’re also designed to be lighter and more comfortable than your average Havvie. Give them a burl, your feet will thank you!

NIMBLE NOMAD SET

It's actually an Australian by the name of Melba Stone who is widely credited with inventing the bum bag back in 1962.

In America, these useful sacks of canvas are better known by their more terrible monikers: fanny packs, waist wallets and chaos pouches. The last name we're not so sure about. No matter what you decide to call them, historically they’ve not been the fashion choice for the masses. That is until the legends at Bellroy redefined the bum bag into a suave and simple shoulder “Sling”. Bellroy’s very handy Nimble Nomad Set is an expandable pocket-saver which also comes with a note sleeve capable of holding up to 11 cards, cash and coins. Strap that to your fanny.

HOME DIY SAUNA

We never did understand the attraction of a backyard pool, which probably gets used just three days a year and takes a small army to maintain.

Instead, whether you’re part Finnish, a weekend warrior or a serious athlete, these new DIY backyard saunas from Heavenly Saunas are made from quality ceder in the US and provide the ultimate at-home relaxation experience. Find out yourself why the Finns consider a daily dose of steam, as the poor man’s pharmacy.
