Urban active kit from Skate Hut

Summering in the city? Get active in style with my pick of the best urban kit from Skate Hut.


1. Mi-Pac Peruvian stripe backpack, £29.95
A pretty south american vibe, a tough cotton exterior and a budget-friendly price make this striped backpack from MiPac a great choice whether you’re mooching around Mexico or just nipping to the shops. A hidden laptop compartment makes it work-friendly, too.

2. Mindless Voodoo 48.5′ Longboard, £179.95
So beautiful you’ll want to hang it on your wall when you aren’t cruising down hills, the illustrated Mindless Voodoo longboard has all the tech features you need too, and is built with a mellow camber for a smooth ride.

3. Kingsmen plaid shirt, £22.99
I pretty much live in plaid shirts in the colder months, and this heavyweight maroon and navy button-down number from DC was made for layering up in summer storms, as well as slinging on later in the year for autumn walks and wearing under crew jumpers in the bitter days of winter.

4. Nike SB Zoom skate shoe, £59.95
Skate shoes the colour of a tropical sea! These hardworking kicks have a durable rubber sole and leather uppers. Skate Hut have a huge selection of Nike SB skate shoes in a rainbow of colours.

5. Rio Roller Quad Skates, £49.95
How can you not have a good day with these amazing retro skates on your feet? Perhaps it’s time to trade in the bike and commute to the office on eight wheels instead… These rasta-inspired delights give great support and cushioning, so you can roll for longer. Definitely my new weekend addiction.

6. GoPro Black Edition, £339.95
The camera of choice for surfers and snowboarders are also perfect for urban sports. Pro video quality and wifi connection make it go further than your average sports camera, and Skate Hut’s pack comes with handy mounts and waterproof housing, so you’re ready to capture all your adventures.
