A quote from firebox.com, where you can buy silly gadgets.
Got me thinking - what would happen if it reached as far as Bushcrafting?According to the professional trendwatchers at The Future Laboratory, Glamping and Flashpacking are utterly in vogue this summer - and, thankfully, it's got nothing to do with dressing up like Noddy Holder...
Glamping and Flashpacking is actually all about enjoying the great outdoors (ie. "camping" and "backpacking" respectively) but with style - and having all the creature comforts of home at your disposal. Camping without comprimise, if you will.
What would we call it? Poshcrafting?
And what sort of stuff would Firebox sell?
Burberry check Tarps?
Leopard print Hammocks?
FCUK mosquito repellent?
Diamante signalling mirrors?
Louis Vitton possibles bags?
(No, I'm not a Firebox employee fishing for next summer's products! )
ps. it looks like it's already started :
