Whether you like fishing, hunting or just camping with your friends, chances are such adventures will take their toll on your comfort. Sure, nothing compares to going out in nature and enjoying a few days off with your friends, but at the end of the day, you’ll still miss the comfort of your home.
When you go fishing or hunting and can’t afford one of these, you’ll most likely spend hours in the same position. You’ll feel stiff, while your muscles will give you a signal. It doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the fun though. Look for a good portable massager and take it with you.
Now, what are the best-rated massagers for such a trip?
We have spoken to Dr.Emma (a podiatric specialist and owner of foot massager advisor) and here are her top 3 picks:
Brookstone Max Percussion Massager
The neck and back are the most exposed areas when you idle for too long in the same position. Therefore, Brookstone’s massager has been designed with these areas in mind. In other words, it’s small and compact so that you can massage yourself. Of course, you can always get someone else to give you a massage – even your kids. After all, this massager weighs just over 3 pounds.
It comes with ten different levels of rhythmic percussion so that you can choose the level of intensity. Its surface bonds to the skin and can be moved up and down without any discomfort. Adjusting the intensity is simple, as it comes with a small dial. You can use the massager hands-free due to the front handle snap as well.
Too much time outdoors? Sleeping in a tent will cause discomfort due to the cold surface too. Luckily, this model has selectable heating. Other than that, you can choose between three different massage types – pulse, soothe and energize.
- Multiple massaging speeds
- Three different modes
- Can be used hands-free
- Compact and portable
- Dual handles for partner massage
- Slows down under hard pressure
- Might feel heavy after long self-uses
Body Back Company’s Vibe Electric Professional Massager
Body Back’s massager is not just a relaxing tool to use when you go out in the wilderness, but a versatile product that can be used by the entire family. For example, it makes a good choice for fishers who need to relax their stiff backs, but it’s also excellent for women who want to get rid of cellulite. Given the professional profile, this model provides enough power for most home uses. It has two speeds and can also reduce painful sensations caused by a hectic lifestyle or acute injuries.
The massager features two large handles, so it’s ideal for partners as well. Massaging someone can be uncomfortable, yet this model makes it easy. It’s sturdy and well built, so it represents a primary choice for chiropractors and massage parlors too.
- Designed with professional uses in mind
- Handles for comfortable massaging
- Two speeds
- Sturdy and well built
- Feels a bit heavy
- Feels large for small areas, such as the neck
Pure-Wave CM5 Extreme Cordless Percussion Massager
Given its compact design, Pure-Wave’s massager is one of the most versatile models for on-the-go lifestyles. It comes with three different modes – acupressure, Swedish and deep tissue. Despite its impressive power, it feels gentle and won’t disturb you with its noise. The top has six heads for a deeper massage, while controls are intuitive and straightforward. It’s cordless and features a long life battery – up to 3 hours of continuous use. Unless you try to drain it in one go, it can go for a couple of weeks.
The massager barely weighs 1.65 pounds. It’s one of the most portable models on the market. You can use it yourself without feeling any discomfort in your arm or shoulder. The head is medium sized, so it works perfectly on small and hardly accessible areas too.
- Lightweight and portable
- Three massaging modes
- Quiet, yet powerful
- Long life battery
- Ideal for both small and large areas
- Cannot be used while charging
- The on/off dial is awkwardly placed, so you can accidentally turn the unit off while massaging yourself
Bottom line, a massager for outdoor adventures must respect a few main conditions – it must be portable and cordless. These top three choices represent some of the top-rated models on the market. Since they’re suitable to professional salons too, chances are they’ll provide the ultimate experience for home uses.
