16th Dec 2010 Kit Bag - Vango Shuttle 80l

The Shuttle is a well thought out kit bag with a decent set of features. At 80l it's big enough for most trips, save a full-on expedition with yaks and porters! However, unlike many bags it weighs...

14th Dec 2010 Review: Petzl Pichu Helmet

It's a difficult enough adjustment to make as it is, having kids. Spending 'proper' money on their kit is a difficult choice. You want the best for them and you obviously want them to be as safe...

23rd Nov 2010 Guidebook: Cuba Climbing

 A number of years ago we seriously considered a trip to Cuba. Not sure why it didn't happen really, but it didn't. We discovered an amazing website as part of our...

22nd Nov 2010 Guidebook: Montserrat Rock Climbs

Many years ago I was in Barcelona for a few days and we decided to take a trip up to Montserrat as it's only a few minutes away by train. We were on a cycle-touring trip at the time so didn't...

19th Nov 2010 Sleeping Mats: Alpkit Dozer & Little Kippa

I remember the days of carry-mats. Cheap, thin foam that, once you'd slept in it for a few nights, would compress to the thickness of a pound coin and offer very little in the way of comfort or...

17th Nov 2010 Guidebook: UAE Rock Climbing

A friend of mine has spent a lot of time in the Egyptian Sinai developing routes, I've been to Wadi Rum in Jordan a couple of times, and I know that Tony Howard has done a lot of desert...

16th Nov 2010 Guidebook: Supertopo - Yosemite Sport Climbs And Top Ropes

I've got to get this off my chest first and foremost. Aside from Southern Sandstone where the rock is so soft that lead climbing is prohibited, I can't think of a single instance in the UK where...

15th Nov 2010 Power Traveller Solar Charger: Power Monkey Explorer

I'd hankered after a solar charger for my various gadgets for some time, but always put off actually getting one on the belief that the technology would get better and better. After a couple of...

21st Oct 2010 Sandals: Teva Itunda

The Itundra have a strange name and also an unusual take on the traditional sport sandal. What makes these a bit different is the closed toe design. They are still a sandal though and one that is...

19th Oct 2010 Sandals: Teva Women's Tirra

Teva Women's Tirra sport sandals – colour: Grape Shake   I have owned my Tirra sandals for approximately 4 months and have interspersed wearing them with other brands of sport sandals...

18th Oct 2010 Jumper: Alpkit Outside Jumper

At £20 (actually listed at £16 on their website at the moment) value for money has to be the first thing to mention about this jumper. Marketed as the 'Outside Jumper' this is a vague play on...

26th Aug 2010 Fleece: Montane Liberty Jacket

I've just popped down to the allotment and that first chill of the end of Summer made me reach for my trusty fleece. You know the one, you reach for it all the time, its the first thing you throw...

25th Aug 2010 Gilet: Rab Generator Vest

The Rab Generator is a gilet that you put in your rucksack in case the weather gets chillier when you are out in the day, and then wear in combo with a layer system in the evening. The Primaloft...

5th Aug 2010 Shoes: Scarpa Epic

These shoes looked great worn down the pub a few times it was a while before i worked out what they were designed for. Struggling to find a time when i could do a long walk to test them, I read...

2nd Aug 2010 Trousers: Jeanius Jeans, Alpkit

 I've been an Alpkit fan for quite some time. If you're not familiar with the name take a look at their website. From humble beginnings they tight-knit bunch of mates appear to have flown in the...

10th Jun 2010 Guidebook: Tuolomne Bouldering - Supertopo PDF

Tuolomne Bouldering   250 boulder problems in one of the  most beautiful bouldering areas anywhere on the planet. A mix of old school and more modern photos. Well photographed boulders with...

10th Jun 2010 Guidebook: Zion Climbing - Supertopo PDF

Supertopo have been producing PDF download guides for a while now. Clearly it's a successful enough medium for them. This guide to Zion is a whopping 232 pages long and 28.5Mb in size so you'll...

1st Jun 2010 Stove: Vango Ultra-Light Stove

I already have a few stoves, but couldn't resist this little baby. When it comes to simplicity it's hard to beat. £17.99 (or cheaper if you shop around online) gets you one of the smallest,...

29th Apr 2010 Book: Ron Fawcett ?Rock Athlete? by Vertebrate Graphics

Ron Fawcett was the finest British climber of his generation, overlapping both Pete Livesey’s reign of the 70’s and Jerry Moffatt’s rise to stardom during the 80’s. Starting life as a shy...

9th Apr 2010 Kit Bag: The North Face El Gordo

For years I managed with a succession of large load-carrying rucksacks when heading away on a trip. They are all well and good if you're trekking, hitching or backpacking, but for road trips, car...

8th Apr 2010 Travel Bag: Berghaus Prime 60

 The Primet 60 is one of a wide range of bags which cross over from outdoor-pursuits-based to conventional travel. It looks like a run of the mill, rugged, but smart kit bag, but has a pair of...

Montane Cordillera 10th Mar 2010 Montane Cordillera Thermal Tights

It took me a few years to pluck up the courage to start wearing running tights. A few years of cold knees and scratched calves! A few years further on down the line and I’ve just got my first...

rab-quantum-400-endurance 22nd Feb 2010 Sleeping Bag: RAB Quantum 400

As lightweight sleeping bags go I reckon you'd be hard pushed to find a better bag. With just 400 grams of fill weight it has kept me warm every time I've used it.  Both the inner and outer are...

5th Feb 2010 Multitool: Leatherman Supertool 300

Over the years I've owned a multitude of penknives and multitools, all based firmly around the lower end of the market. I recall buying one 'leatherman' style tool from a market as a teenager and...
