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...

Salomon Skin Pro 15 Set Running Backpack 5th Oct 2017 Salomon Skin Pro 15 Set Running Backpack

I have previously tested a Skin S-Lab Salomon bag, but though it is ace, it's not big enough for runs which require full winter kit. Well, it is big enough, but stopping to get something out of...

edelrid-shield-lite-climbing-helmet 3rd Oct 2017 Edelrid Shield Light Climbing Helmet

Weighing 220g the Edelrid Shield Lite helmet is amongst the lightest on the market. It's a single-piece moulded foam construction with a hard outer shell. Inside there is a removable lattice of...

Edelrid Apus Pro Dry 26th Sep 2017 Climbing Ropes - Edelrid Apus Pro Dry 7.9 60m

Climbing with new ropes is a great feeling. One of security I guess. When I started out climbing a half rope was usually 9mm, with full ropes coming in at 10mm+. Obviously technology has...

Kitchen Sink Sea To Summit 1 22nd Sep 2017 Kitchen Sink - Sea To Summit

A very handy addition to our camping kit. It's been used for water carrying, washing up, crabbing, muscle filtration (of the shellfish variety!), water collection, and as a shopping bag! It...

Alpkit Ordos 2 - 4 21st Sep 2017 Ordos 2 Lightweight Tent - Alpkit

Lightweight tents have been around for some time. Driven by two-day mountain marathon events where pairs of competitors race in teams carrying all of their kit and food weight became paramount...

Komperdell Ultralite Vario 4 3rd Aug 2017 Carbon Ultralite Vario 4 Compact Walking Poles from Komperdell

Having reviewed a few sets of walking poles over the years it's always interesting when a new design comes along. The Ultralite Vario, which weigh an impressively light 181g each, comprise...

Flex 3 explode 4th Jul 2017 MSR Flex 3 System - Cookware

MSR have a certain genius for designing clever kit. The Flex Systems are essentially nesting sets of cooking pans, plates / bowls, and cups. I'd intended to get the Flex 4 System as we are a...

Mashk Portable Camping Sink Alpkit 16th Jun 2017 Mashk Portable Camping Sink from Alpkit

On a recent sea kayaking  trip to Loch Hourn we took a couple of these sinks with us. They are awesome. Long handles mean that they are easy to carry, even when full of dishes. Having two...

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...

Snip20170516 24 16th May 2017 Montane Featherlite 30 Rucksack

I own a very snazzy backpack and also a bum bag for racing and can't really fault them. However I was after something a little bigger that is still designed for running with. Enter the...

Mountain Warehouse LIghtweight Camping Chair 4th Apr 2017 Lightweight Folding Chair - Mountain Warehouse

I love the fact that a piece of kit seems to have run its development course, and arrived at something that can't really be bettered, and then some bright spark has an idea. Sometimes these...
