30th Nov 2005 RucksackL TNF Off Chute 18

OK, for an 18 litre day pack the Off Chute weighs in at a pretty hefty 1360g and is a bit of a heavyweight for its size. That said, one needs to remember that it is designed with skiing in mind,...

The North Face Free Thinker Jacket The Free Thinker Jacket is pitched by The North Face as their premier backcountry ski and snowboard jacket. It certainly looks the business but it does it...

27th Nov 2005 Honegar

Sir Ranulph Fiennes uses this concoction to keep his joints supple and in good working order. It is basically a blend of honey and cider vinegar made to an age old recipe. Apparently he has used...

23rd Nov 2005 Ski Trousers: TNF Freedom Insulated Pant

For years I had quite possibly the most horrible purple and green all-in-one ski suit that has ever graced the planet. It would live in the cupboard and come out from time to time when we went...

15th Nov 2005 Down Jacket: Rab Neutrino Women's

Somehow I have managed to get to the age of 27 without owning any down clothing since getting my Quantum vest I find it hard to believe! The vest packs up very small into its own stuff sack...

12th Nov 2005 Book: Preposterous Tales

11th Nov 2005 Camera Bag: Lowe Pro D-Res 10AW

A digital camera is hardly the most robust of inventions, and that flimsy pouch that came with it won't protect from dust, knocks and moisture. If you're taking photos outdoors, your hi-tech...

10th Nov 2005 Bra: TNF Seamless Sports Bra

This is a great bra for most activities, including running - but that always depends on your size and how much support you need. For me it was fine, but I'm sure that more supportive bras exist. I...

7th Nov 2005 Sandals: Chaco Z2 Sandals ? Terrano Sole
