Excalibur Food Dehydrator 6th Nov 2007 Food: Excalibur Food Dehydrator

The Excalibur Food Dehydrator might not at first seem like a review item for an outdoor website, but you can use it to make food that is healthy and doesn’t squash in the bottom of your rucksack...

Anasazi Vecros 25th Jun 2007 Rock Shoes: 5.10 Anasazi Velcros

OK, so I’ve not had a pair of 5.10’s for a number of years now. Not really sure why I drifted away from them as 5.10 always my brand of choice (I had countless pairs of Mocassyms). Since I...

18th Jun 2007 Rucksack: Berghaus Expedition 80

I’ve yet to find what I consider to be the perfect expedition sack and alas, the Berghaus Expedition is no exception. It comes close, but has a few serious failings in my book. My idea of a...

Berghaus Bioflex 65 10 14th Jun 2007 Rucksack: Berghaus Bioflex 65 10L

The most important feature of this Berghaus pack is the Bioflex back system. This is designed to allow the pack to always stay at your centre of gravity, therefore making it a more comfortable...

7th Jun 2007 Running Shoes: Montrail Hardrock

At first I used them on late night runs on both road and off trail runs. The off trail runs were mostly done by head torch and thus the grip and traction properties of the shoes were put to the...

6th Jun 2007 Headtorch: Silva L1

This new product from Silva seems to defy the laws of physics producing 3W of light for 140 hours on 4 AA cells. All the calculations do not seem to add up, but sound impressive.  Therefore we...

5th Jun 2007 Guidebook: Stanage (BMC)

If I were ever on the climbing equivalent of Desert Island Disks and had to pick a crag for my island to live out the rest of my life it would have to be Stanage, with the overhanging buttresses...

25th Apr 2007 Rucksack: Berghaus Freeflow 50

I already own one of the Freeflow range sacks, a super lightweight Freeflow Light (32l) so I had high expectations for this one. I have to say that I am a little disappointed though as it has one...

21st Feb 2007 Chair: Handysit

It's commonplace these days to throw in a couple of lightweight camping chairs when car-boot camping. We thought we'd review something similar, but for nippers! The HandySitt is for babies who are...

North Wales Rock Selected Rock Climbs in North Wales The power of the Internet is becoming increasingly evident in the world of guidebook production. Whilst many guides slip almost unnoticed into...

13th Feb 2007 Guidebook: Mallorca (Rockfax)

It was many moons ago that I first went to Mallorca, about the time of the first Rockfax guides in fact. The slender affair that we took with us served us well at the time, but I fear would be...

21st Jan 2007 Rock Shoes: Red Chili Coronas

I’ve been wearing Red Chili boots on and off now for about 5 years. I guess that shows that I like them. They fit my feet, perform well, and last long enough to be economically viable. The new...

Nomad Travel Cot 21st Jan 2007 Travel Cot: Nomad Travel Tent

Nomad Travel Cot Not your average bit of planetFear review kit this, but something we think a lot of people will be interested in hearing about. If you've got, or are soon to have, a baby then you...

3rd Jan 2007 Guidebook: Lake District Mountain Biking

Written by Chris Gore & Richard Staton This is the 6th book in Vertebrate's mountain biking guide range in 2 years. That's seriously worrying for anybody else producing, or thinking of producing,...

3rd Jan 2007 Fleece: Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man
