Jackets And Waterproofs

Ajax 5 20th Sep 2018 Review - Ajax Waterproof Jacket from Montane

Montane Women’s Ajax Jacket Review I’ve had my previous waterproof jacket for 15 years before it fell apart, I know this is likely past most manufacturers expected lifetimes for a jacket,...

Berghaus Ridgemaster 23rd May 2018 Berghaus Ridgemaster Jacket

The Ridgemaster is a medium-weight waterproof jacket suitable for the harshest weather. It's a GORE-TEX membrane so works as you'd expect to keep the rain out, but also keep you ventilated....

Berghaus Pro Bib Shell Pant 17th May 2018 Berghaus Pro Bib Shell Pant

Let's get some terminology sorted out first. Bib is an Americanism for salopettes, which is in turn European. Dungarees is now a pretty old fashioned term. Essentially they are all the same...

VauDe Escape Kids Pants 19th Dec 2017 Kids Escape Pants - VAUDE

Kids waterproof trousers come and go in our family pretty quickly. When they were younger we bought pair after pair of cheap, thin, no-frills versions for a few quid. They'd last a few months...

Montane Minimus Stretch Jacket 3rd Nov 2017 Montane Minimus Stretch Jacket

Weighing in at 257g  this is definitely in the realm of lightweight waterproof jackets. It's made from a very thin Pertex with the usual and expected properties of being waterproof, windproof...

Snip20171031 1 31st Oct 2017 Kids Escape Light Jacket II - VAUDE

I've said it in numerous previous reviews, but  I will say it again; too many of us kit ourselves out with funky technical kit, but neglect our kids. VAUDE produce a decent range of junior...

Berghaus Fastpacking Extrem Shell 12th Jun 2017 Berghaus Fastpacking Extrem Shell

Part of Berghaus's Extrem lightweight range the Fastpacking Shell retails at £170 and weighs 250g. 250g for a fully waterproof jacket suitable for extreme mountain weather is impressive. It...

Vaude Larice 5th May 2017 VauDe Men's Larice Jacket

Weighing in at just 270g this isn’t the lightest fully waterproof  jacket on the market, but it's a decent contender. It has been designed for ski touring, but obviously will work for any...

Snip20161202 4 9th Dec 2016 Polaris Pack Me Jacket & Torsion Shirt

All of this week I've been reviewing Polaris Bikewear suitable for the winter (Monday - Cadence Bob Tights, Tue  - RBS Overshoes, Wed - Blitz Gloves, Thu - Windsheer Windproof Jersey).  As it's...

Montane Minimus Hybrid Jacket 11th May 2016 Montane Minimus Hybrid Jacket

I sadly left my last winter jacket at a service station and it has not been since. My requirements in a winter jacket are as follows: first and foremost it needs to be warm and waterproof; it...

Berghaus Hypershell Waterproof Jacket 6th May 2016 Berghaus Hypershell Waterproof Jacket

Weighing in at 100g this is now one of my lightest bits of kit. It’s waterproof, though I wouldn’t choose to wear it for full day out in the hills, and windproof, and very, very packable. It...

Inov8 - RERACPANTU 5th May 2016 Inov-8 Race Elite Racepant

If you’ve ever done a fell race that requires full waterproofs then you’ll know that those waterproofs need to be fully taped along the seams. I have a few pairs of very lightweight waterproof...

Salomon Fastwing 18th Apr 2016 Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie

I recently arrived at my folks house after a long bike ride. My Dad asked where my waterproof was so I tossed him the little tennis ball sized stuff-sack that contained the Salomon Fast Wing...
