Xsories Stuffler 8l 11th May 2015 XSories Stuffler 8l Dry Bag

Xsories are a new brand to me, but I've reviewed a couple of their bits of kit recently and have been impressed by both. The oddly named Stuffler is billed as an 'Extremely Water-Resistant Duffle...

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...

Aquasphere Challanger Wetsuit 10th Jun 2014 Challenger Wetsuit - Aqua Sphere

Olympus Tough 3 25th Feb 2014 Olympus Stylus Tough TG2 Compact Camera Review

Dixon Sport RX 200 21st Nov 2013 Dixon Sport RX - Prescription Glasses

Garmin-Fenix-Watch-188 11th Jul 2013 Garmin Fenix GPS Watch

Vango Adventure Wind Break 14th Dec 2012 Adventure Windbreak - Vango

FizanCompact Walking Pole 22nd Mar 2012 Fizan Compact Walking Poles

I guess it’s a sign of getting older, but I’m finding that I am using poles more and more often when out in the hills. I’m running a lot which means my knees are taking a hammering so the...
