Pour Me Some: Coleman
If camping or dining outdoors on your patio are part of your summer plans, you’ll want the insulated Claret Wine Glass. It’s perfect for sipping your favorite beverage during the deliciously warm weather we enjoy here in Canada. It not only looks super cool and is easy to hold, but it keeps your drink ice cold for up to six hours. With a no sweat design and a bottom pad for no clanking or slippage, it offers a thin rim and comes in black or seafoam. Retail: $19.99 at Walmart or online at Coleman Canada.
Also perfect for either camping or around the house is the BatteryGuard LED Headlamp. The BatteryGuard system stops battery drain, reduces corrosion and allows batteries to be stored in the device for years. The head strap adjusts to fit any size. We tried it around the house and yard — it’s incredibly convenient if you want to keep your hands free while searching for something, or while you’re busy sipping from your Claret Wine Glass. The headlamp has a 100-meter beam, three light settings (low beam, high beam and red), is water-resistant (no need to worry if it starts to rain) and is impact-resistant up to one metre. Retail: $19.99 to $44.99 at Canadian Tire and Walmart or online at Coleman Canada.
