The SOl will boil half
a litre of water in 75
seconds – that’s three
cups of tea, faster
than your kettle
– packs down inside
itself, weighs just
300g and comes with
auto-ignition so you
don’t even need a
lighter to get brewing.

Rickie &
Melvin’s
top pick!
“Nobody wants to be
sitting around on a
patch of muddy grass
in their finest festival
threads,” say Kiss
100 legends Rickie
and Melvin.
“Especially with
the weather we are
prone to having in
the UK around
festival season. But
the real advantage is:
it’s a two-seater!
What hot chick isn't
going to want some
Air Sofa action?”

water and dust proof.

of moles will be able
to get at your gear.
