31st Jul 2009 Trousers: Sprayway Mori Combi Pant

Here's a dilemma: do you wear trousers that look great and carry a pair of shorts in your bag, or do you sacrifice a bit of the style to wear a pair of trousers with legs that zip off to leave a...

31st Jul 2009 Walking Boots: Scarpa Ladies Manta

The Scarpa Manta Boots are recommended for up to Grade 3 winter climbing and I would fully back that up. They felt amazingly light for the amount of support they provided for my ankle and...

31st Jul 2009 Trousers: Srayway Torino Pant

I have been reviewing a few of Sprayway’s new Bamboo range so was expecting something quite different from the Torino Pant when they arrived. At first I returned them for a larger pair as the...

31st Jul 2009 Top: Sprayway Torino Zipped

My immediate reaction to the Sprayway Torino zipped top was how light it was. There’s a helluva lot of performance packed into 200grams. The bamboo material is soft on the skin and not at all...

31st Jul 2009 Shirt: Sprayway Mori Shirt

Made from the new super material Bamboo this is a comfortable and good-looking stylish shirt that works well either out cragging, walking or out on the town. It feels strangely heavier than the...

31st Jul 2009 Teeshirt: Sprayway Mori Tee

Intrigued that one can make clothes out of Bamboo I did a little research on the subject and found some interesting facts. And lots of them! Bamboo is soft, antibacterial, incredibly quick-drying,...

31st Jul 2009 Thermal: Sprayway Mori Zipped Top

Weighing just 239g and made of bamboo the Mori Zipped Top is part of a large range of lightweight, high wicking, odourless and environmentally friendly clothing from Sprayway. It' is close fitting...

30th Jul 2009 Top: Sprayway Torino Top

The Sprayway Torino top is made of bamboo. This is an incredibly soft material, but does not compromise on durability or elasticity. I have worn it a great deal and it still looks good, there has...

28th Jul 2009 Rucksack Cover: Osprey Airporter LZ

Another clever bag from Osprey. I once had a bouldering mat that came in a heavy duty bag. When travelling to the US for a road trip with a massive luggage allowance, but no rucksack big enough to...

28th Jul 2009 Rucksack Cover: Osprey Rainguard UL

Osprey UL Raincover A neat lightweight and waterproof cover with an elasticated hem to stretch over your sack in heavy rain. I’ve found it particularly useful when leaving my pack at the base of...

28th Jul 2009 Rucksack: Osprey Solo

A simple, yet effective back-hugging sack that clips onto most of the Osprey range using one of a series of special clip-sets. Basically it gives you an additional 8 litres on top of whatever pack...

28th Jul 2009 Rucksack: Osprey Circuit

A simple bag designed for use by your average commuter or student, with laptop, files and the like, the Circuit doubles incredibly well as a regular day bag for a family with a coupel of kids....

28th Jul 2009 Rucksack: Osprey Mutant 38

I realised that most of the rucksacks I owned were old or badly designed so approached Osprey to see if they would like any of their new models reviewing. This is the first of the packs to arrive,...

7th Jul 2009 Fleece: Henri Lloyd Flare Hood

Eighty five quid for a hooded fleece is a lot of money in my book. If you’re into designer labels then it’s probably a snip, and a well made one at that, but iif you’re not, then you will...

7th Jul 2009 Groundsheet: TNF Minibus 23 Footprint

Retailing at £25 some would argue that it's a little cheeky of TNF to charge extra for a groundsheet, but essentially this is an additional groundsheet that will prolong the life of your sewn in...

6th Jul 2009 Stuffsacks: POD Airstream Drysacs

POD are now world renowned for their good quality bags. Granted they normally make rucksacks, but there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to transfer some of their skills to related kit....
