Outdoor Adventures Giveaway - Magellan's



Magellan’s was founded by two travel professionals to provide a single source of unique and useful travel products, supported by well trained travel gear specialists, and backed by a complete 100% guarantee of satisfaction. In addition to being a company that offers an extensive line of products for travelers, Magellan's also supports international volunteer organizations such as SEE International.

If you have plans on travelling anywhere, I highly suggest you check out Magellan's long list of items that range from electronics and luggage to toiletries and clothing. Even if you aren't travelling, there's lots of things to purchase that would be great to have just for personal use.

The Tirra Sandal from Teva has got to be one of the most comfortable pair of sandals I've ever worn. I've worn them A LOT and have received many compliments on them. I don't know how factual it is, but a fellow camper made mention that Teva sandals are what skydivers wore all the time when we used to have skydiving conventions in town. She said they wore them because there was no worry of them falling off when walking on ground or flying in air.

I've walked quite a bit in these shoes and have to agree that it's nice not having to worry about them slipping off or shifting. The straps are adjustable to customize fit to your comfort level. The rubber soles ensure traction, making these sandals easy to wear in less than perfect terrain. There are three different color options for this sandal. Mine is Flinstone Blue. I have no doubt that I will be purchasing another pair of these when the ones I own wear out. That's how much I like them.


I first started out using the Leaf Day Light Bag as a regular, everyday purse but found that I carry way too much stuff and was overpacking it. I now use it when I need to quickly gather a few things together and don't need to haul everything that is in my purse. The strap is adjustable and it has a secure buckle closure so there's less of a chance of someone reaching in and grabbing something out of it. The side mesh pocket is perfect for holding a cell phone and the textile look of the bag gives it a pretty look.


If you're in need of something to keep your valuables safe when travelling, the StowSafe is a grand product in doing just that. It is roomy enough to hold your toiletries, medications, or small valuables. What makes this a great bag to have is that it is practically theft proof. All stops were taken when making this bag. It has a secret zippered pocket inside, a slashproof hanging strap that you can lock to a secure fixture, and lockable zippers with a padlock. Three included keys and a padlock give you the secure feeling that your precious items can be safe. Keep in mind that this bag can still be inspected by airport security, just as all of your other luggage is. I use my StowSafe at the campground and keep my valuables in it. When I am away, I lock up the bag and secure it. The worry of any theft is minimal.


The Luxe Travel Pillow I received has been snatched away from me by my son. I'm okay with that because he uses it all the time. Whether he is sleeping in the camper or resting on the wooden swing set to look at the stars, he uses the pillow. He likes how soft it feels and that he can carry it around in a drawstring pouch when not in use. One side is made of sueded microfiber while the other is made of polyester jersey. This pillow would make a nice alternative to hotel and airplane pillows. Or, as Logan uses it, as a comfortable place to rest your head when sleeping or watching the stars.



Win It!
One person will win a Luxe Travel Pillow in navy.

I love the AquaBells! It's too easy to let resistance training (and protecting your bones!) to fall by the wayside while on the road- these are just the ticket!
