Berghaus Ilam Jacket 29th Apr 2015 Berghaus Ilam Down Jacket

The Berghaus Ilam jacket is probably the fourth or fifth down jacket I've owned over the years, but is my favourite. It's not a big fat one for hanging around base camp in, but a more...

Zamberland lady Lite GTX RR 28th Apr 2015 Zamberlan Lady Lite GTX RR Walkng Boots

I’ve only ever owned one pair of walking boots prior to these (I was late to the game) and they lasted for 15 years and gave me everything I asked of them, so my next pair had a lot to live up...

Terra Nova Bothy 4 28th Apr 2015 Terra Nova Ultralight Bothy 4

Essentially an emergency shelter this bothy is one of those bits of kit that you may well never use, and you certainly won't want to, but it's useful to have one in your pack if you are out in...

peakdistricttrailrunning ofc485px 27th Apr 2015 Peak District Trail Running - Vertebrate Publishing

I've long held the view that there aren't enough fell running guide books out there. We are inundated with cycling guides and climbing guides, but running is arguably more popular, but there are...

Aquasphere Kaimen Exo Goggles 22nd Apr 2015 Aquasphere Kaimen Exo Goggles

To my mind there are really only two things that matter with a pair of goggles: do they keep the water out, and do they stay mist free. The Kaimen Exo does both with bells on. I swim once a week...

Salomon Bonatti Jacket 21st Apr 2015 Salomon Bonatti WP Jacket

I got the Bonatti to replace a well-aged Mountain Hardware Quark jacket. The Quark jacket had some good features, but its durability had let it down a little, it currently has no material between...

Scarpa Zen Pro 21st Apr 2015 Scarpa Zen Pro Approach Shoes

Almost my favourite Approach Shoes ever. But not quite. I don't usually start a review with a summary, but they are that good that I thought they deserved it. In essence they have everything an...

Alpkit Torch 1 20th Apr 2015 Alpkit Factory Visit & Head Torch Product Testing

A month or so back I popped into the Alpkit offices and warehouse which is based just outside of Nottingham. Despite having a good working relationship with the guys who run Alpkit - they started...

Seal Skinz All Season Gloves 20th Apr 2015 Sealskinz All Season Gloves

Introduction Sealskinz have been one of those brands that I've (not deliberately) somehow avoided over the years so I thought I'd best try them out. A month or so back I took part in an overnight...

Salomon S-Lab Running Gloves 17th Apr 2015 Salomon S-Lab Running Gloves

Sadly I managed to lose these glove after wearing them only a handful of times ('suce the pun). However that was enough time to assess them fairly well. I was after a pair of lightweight gloves to...

Lif Of A Tent 15th Apr 2015 Life Of A Tent

Not exactly a Blog post in its own right, but a pointer to an entirely new Blog called Life Of A Tent that I created yesterday to follow the life of one of our tents, reviewed here last year.

Salomon Trail Gaitor Low 14th Apr 2015 Salomon Trail Gaiter - Low

Having done a fair amount of running in the snow this winter I wanted to try a system to keep the said cold stuff out of my shoes, and in particular, to keep it from balling up on top of the...

XKitPNG 1st Apr 2015 X-Kit Jacket - Preview

Am pleased to say that I've had a sneak preview of this jacket. Looks amazing. I love the cost point and the PDF download option of the pattern. My Mum will be hard at work producing these for the...

TNV Paramount Convertible Trousers 1st Apr 2015 The North Face Paramount Convertible Trousers

OK so convertible trousers may not be hip, but they are just the ticket when going light is important and the weather is mixed. I've had a few pairs of convertibles before - convertible, if you're...
