None of this lazing about on the beach nonsense for you – you're off on an action-packed adventure holiday. We bring you six essential items for your holiday toolkit.
1GB Nu Dolphin MP3 player, £70
This 25g player is IPX7 certified, shrugging off water like a duck smothered in Dax wax. Ideal for staving off the boredom when doing laps in the pool, and perfect for an adventure – sea kayaking, anyone?
Panasonic SDR-SW20, £300
Capture your adventure in DVD-quality MP2. It records to SDHC, is water- and shockproof and has electronic image stabilisation to take the judders out. Don't miss out on the action because you're worried about your camcorder getting wet.
Victorinox SwissCard, £15
This is the perfect wallet accessory for those on walkabout, featuring among other things a blade, screwdriver, pen and micro scissors. Now there's no excuse for having overgrown toenails poking out of those Teva sandals.
Freedom Keychain GPS 2000, £60
A SiRFstarIII Bluetooth GPS receiver that’ll wirelessly equip laptops, PDAs and phones with full sat-nav capabilities. Perfect for finding yourself.
LED-Lenser V8 Turbo torch, £9
A necessary piece of tiny tech, being as useful for exploring cave drawings in the Australian bush as it is for finding your keyhole after a messy night.
Canon Powershot G9, £430
The creative control you have over its 12.1-megapixel snaps is more akin to a digital SLR than a compact, and yet it isn’t so heavy that it’ll drag you back down that Aztec monument.
