Each month we pick our adventure essentials making waves in our world. Whether it's the perfect headphones for a workout, a must have biking accessory or a new line of tees we'll share our faves.

Between mini breaks, adventures closer to home and holidays we try to put gear to the test so we can bring you the best bits. We wore this Helly Hansen Maroi Shell Jacket on the slopes in Livigno and can attest to the fact that it was the perfect ski jacket. Just the right amount of comfort and warmth. Helly Tech® Professional fabric creates a shield between you and the outdoors and we loved the integrated removable mesh vest, another layer between you and the elements.

Girl Outdoor Editor, Fiona, put the Salomon OUTline GTX® shoes to the test this weekend with a hike in Sligo, Ireland. "Their GORE-TEX membrane provided the perfect grip in muddy and sometimes boggy conditions, my feet were dry and cosy the entire trek. Good support on uneven ground," says Fiona.

As you know we love a sustainable story, that's why we're loving Gym+Coffee new range of bags - upcycling disused coffee bean sacks into The Coffee Bag Collection.

 "To produce these bags, we teamed up with Zulfi & Greta Moon of Vel-Oh cycling bags who create masterpieces in their Galway workshop. These two are exceptionally passionate about what they do and have taken our concept of upcycling burlap and turning it into the perfect set of bags for urban living, weekend getaways, gym-to-cafe carrying and for the cycle-to-work-commuter."
