THE PRIZES

christmas-competition-kobo-aura-h2o

KOBO AURA H2O E-READER

Kobo’s Aura H2O is an e-reader with a twist: able to survive for up to 30 minutes in 1 metre of water with the port cover closed, it’s also dust and sand-proof. Throw in a battery life of up to two months and you’ve got the perfect bit of kit for those long trips to the desert.

Packing a 6.8in anti-glare screen that’s as good as any book, courtesy of high clarity E-Ink smarts, this stylish device is also equipped with Kobo’s ComfortLight tech – meaning you can read in the dark, without straining your eyes.

The Kobo Aura H2O is available for £140 from kobo.com

JEKYLL & HIDE LEATHER TRAVEL WALLET

There’s nothing like lost-card drama to ruin a trip away. Put paid to the woes of tickets-gone-walkabout with this luxury leather wallet from bag aficionados Jekyll & Hide.

Slim enough to be jacket friendly, it’s equipped with a total of 22 card slots – which should be enough for anyone’s loyalty card collection – as well as a money pouch, pencil holder and transparent panel for that all-important photo of your bucket list destination.

The Jekyll & Hide Travel Wallet is available for £89 from jekyllandhide.co.uk

SIGG HOT & COLD GLASS FLASK

A glass flask might sound like a recipe for disaster, but this clever number from Swiss makers SIGG is different. Constructed from double-layered borosilicate glass, it’ll stand out from the crowd as it happily keeps your tea toasty or your juice cool.

A pair of filters is included, too – perfect for infusions that last all day.

Think you know the world? Atlas Obscura might have you thinking again. Trumpeting the wonder of 700 lesser-known locations in the world, it’s sure to get your mind spinning and your suitcases packed.

Modern Traveller's Christmas Competition

T-LAB BIG SNOW SWEATSHIRT

“Can I offer you a blanket?” Kind as you are, flight attendant, the meagre warmth of your complimentary wrap will do little against the relentless barrage of conditioned air assaulting our chilly skin.

Fight off in-flight shivers with this snug sweatshirt from T-Lab, instead. Stylishly adorned with a subtle snowflake motif, a cosy fleece lining means this dark grey number will keep you toasty warm, too.

The T-Lab Big Snow Sweatshirt is available for £43 from t-lab.eu

GREAT EXPEDITIONS: 50 JOURNEYS THAT CHANGED OUR WORLD

More than a mere compendium of dangerous expeditions, it uncovers the true stories of those who discovered far-flung, remote and unknown locations when no-one else dared to do so.
