BOTTLE TOP We all need to do our bit to protect the world’s sea ice from climate change. But you can chill: this is the first parka of its kind to be made from 100% recycled fabrics, with post-consumer plastic bottles used to create its waterproof shell. SHACKLETON ANTARCTIC PROTECTOR PARKA Now it’s undeniably been pretty brisk of late but this parka is built to withstand conditions far frostier than a winter wander round the Cotswolds. Produced in collaboration with Blue Marine Foundation, Shackleton’s Antarctic Protector Parka is designed for the NGO’s field operatives working in the continent’s coastal zones – notoriously the most damp, blustery and bitterly cold conditions on the planet. But if this climate sounds like an average day in your garden or – more likely – you’re planning some…

R.KUMAR Q Which kind of headphones offer the best experience? THERE ARE A COUPLE OF KEY KINDS OF CANS, BOTH OF WHICH TEND TO HAVE A VERY DIFFERENT FEEL: CLOSED-BACKED AND OPEN-BACKED A Presuming we’re leaving out ear buds and on-ear headphones here, both for reasons of space and because each category is a subjective minefield, GaGu will limit this selection to only over-ear kit. There are a couple of key kinds of cans, both of which tend to have a very different feel: closed-backed and open-backed. The former is a completely sealed enclosure. Sound goes one way, towards your ears. This means the majority of outside noise can’t make it in to ruin your tunes, and is the logical reason that you’ll only find noise cancelling cleverness in closed-back cans. They’re close,…

What is Lumen (₹34,900, lumen.me)? Lumen is a hand-held, portable device that measures metabolism. In essence, Lumen is a breathalyser that uses “CO2 sensor and flow meter to determine the CO2 concentration in a single breath”. Based on this, the algorithm in the Lumen App can determine what type of ‘fuel’ your body is using (carbs or fat) and how flexible your metabolism is. This matters, because a flexible metabolism can shift from using carbs to using fats for fuel easier, balancing energy levels more effectively. Lumen users can also avoid ‘energy dips’ during the day. It takes roughly a week of frequent breath measurements to determine the user’s ‘breath signature’ and four weeks to be given a Lumen Flex Score (LFS). LFS represents metabolic flexibility (how efficiently the body…
