Boreal Velcro Joker 6th Jun 2019 Boreal Joker Velcro Climbing Shoes - Women's

With two growing boys who are into their rock climbing it's a fairly constant battle to keep them in decent rock shoes. My eldest is now 12 and has grown out of the kids models which aren't really...

Vaude Kids Snow Cup Gloves 19th Mar 2018 Kids Snow Cup Gloves - VAUDE

For years my kids had complained of snow getting between the end of their jacket and the end of their gloves, so when it came time to get some new gloves I decided to find a pair that would...

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...

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...

Salomon Speedcross Kids Running Shoes 2nd Aug 2017 Salomon Speedcross Kids Running Shoes

Review by Bryn, aged 11.   These shoes are perfect for a lot of different things, running being the best.   This is a list of things that I like about these shoes:   My favorite thing...

P7180163 29th Jul 2015 Petzl Kids Macchu and Body Harness

I've written a few reviews recently on kids kit and the importance of putting them in the right sized stuff. Arguably it's never more important than clmbing harnesses as there's a genuine safety...

Osprey Jet 18 23rd Jul 2015 Osprey Jet 18 Kids Rucksack

There comes a time in a kids' life when he or she needs to start carrying their own kit when out walking and camping. Personally I've been keen not to start this too early, preferring instead, to...

LED Lenser NEO 30th Jun 2015 LED Lenser NEO Headtorch

This isn't a torch to run or cycle with, but it's one I often take running and cycling, as well as camping, and most other occasions when I know a torch is going to come in handy. Why? Because...

Webee Harness 8th May 2015 Ocun WeBee Kids Climbing Harness

Our eldest boy is 8 and recently took part in a climbing competition for the first time. We arrived on the day with his full body harness that he'd been wearing whenever he climbed for the past 5...

Edelrid Crocy 7th May 2015 Edelrid Crocy Oasis Kids Climbing Shoes

It's all too common to see young kids climbing in a pair of trainers. The common thinking seems to be that kids feet grow so quickly that it's not cost effective to buy specialist shoes as they...

Maddy Frog55 9th Dec 2014 Frog 55 Children's Bike

Introduction We'd been meaning to upgrade our now 7 (then 6) year old's bike from a good, but not geared, bike for too long. We're keen cyclists and we wanted to get her a bike that would allow...

Raidlight LED Running Vest 2 25th Nov 2014 Raidlight LED Running Vest

I had a conversation with a friend a few weeks back about the merging of technical kit with fashion and we quickly moved on to discuss the combining of 'real' technology such as AI, nano-computer...

Didriksons Slaskeman Kids Set 20th Nov 2014 Didriksons Slaskeman Kids Waterproof Set

These are a basic and sturdy set of children’s waterproofs, ostensibly designed for sailing. The waterproofs come in funky, gender neutral colours - in this case a bright green jacket and...

VAUDE Kids Gaiter-Red 188 1st May 2013 VauDe Kids Gaiters

I wrote a review yesterday for a pair of kids gloves and said that I am excited that my kids are now getting old enough to warrant having proper outdoor kit. In the recent snow we had it was all...

Sprayway Junior Stretch Gloves 188 30th Apr 2013 Junior Stretch Grip Glove - Sprayway

It’s exciting that my kids are now getting old enough to warrant buying technical kit for. Before a recent trip to Scotland at Easter where we expected (and got) cold weather, I sourced a pair...

15th Dec 2011 Kozikids Softshell

When I was a kid I my folks simply dressed me in jeans and a jumper for the most part. If it rained or was windy I put on a basic waterproof, ran around and ended up wet! I remember my first piece...
