Fastpacking 7th May 2019 Fastpacking - Multi-Day Running Adventures - Guidebook

It seems that every other week there is a new sport or activity evolving from the outdoor world. If it's not stand up paddleboarding or wild swimming, it's bike packing and now fastpacking....

PB150032 13th Mar 2019 Kalenji Kiprun Trail XT7 Running Shoes

Stand on the start line of a local fell race and there are precious few runners wearing Kalenji shoes, one of Decathlon's myriad of own-brand lines. Having been working closely with the local...

VJ Sport XTRM 1 10th Oct 2018 Title: VJ Sport XTRM – A true mountain running shoe

True mountain running shoes are hard to come by. You need them to be good on rock, so not too heavily studded and able to grip in the wet. They need to hold firm on wet grassy and...

x-talon-230-grey-teal-1 26th Jun 2018 Inov-8 X-Talon 230s

The Inov-8 X-Talon 230s are a great lightweight fell running shoe. The lightness has not resulted in compromise in shock absorption or foot support. They really are a comfortable shoe.   I...

Salomon Snowcross Shoes 9th May 2018 Salomon Snowcross Shoes

Sadly these babies arrived the day after the last snow of the season melted (surely there's no more to come?) so I haven’t given them a true test and won't do so for some time. However that...

Montane Cordillera Thermal Tights 21st Mar 2018 Montane Cordillera Thermal Tights

Last Saturday was one of those magical weather days that don’t come around very often. Snowy, windy, sunny, windy, cold and windy. I was out for the best part of five hours, running our local...

Salomo Speedtrak 20th Mar 2018 Salomon Speedtrak Running Shoes

It’s not often that you can say a pair of shoes got you to a meeting on time. The Speedtraks arrived on the day of the said meeting. I work from home and juggle squeezing out for a run,...

Salomon S Lab Wings 8 21st Dec 2017 Salomon S Lab Wings 8 Running Shoes

I got these shoes primarily for a single event. That may seem frivolous, but given that the event was the pinnacle of my running 'career' to date I figured it was fair.   The shoes are...

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...

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...

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...

Ruffwear Roamer Leash 14th Jun 2017 Ruffwear Roamer Leash

So we got a dog. It's been a long time in coming, but we finally took the plunge and found an awesome rescue dog a month ago. This is not the place to wax lyrical about it having been a good...

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...

New Balance Fresh Foam 17th May 2017 New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v7 Running Shoes

 I was signed up to run the London Marathon in April so it was time for some new road shoes. Sadly a week before the event I learned that due to an administrative error my place had not been...

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...

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...

s-l1600 23rd Mar 2017 Komperdell Explorer Contour Walking Pole

I've had a few walking poles over the years, but this one stands out as different thanks to the locking mechanisms. All my previous poles have featured the standard twist-to-lock which are...

1424444624-98335500 5th Oct 2016 LED Lenser XEO19R Head Torch & Bike Light

The LED XEO19R is a beast of a torch. Boasting up to 2,000 lumens and a throw distance of 300m it’s the most powerful light I've yet owned. Not only that, but it comes with more accessories...

FullSizeRender 29th Sep 2016 Sea To Summit UltraLight Mattress

Sleeping mattresses seem to be getting smaller and smaller. This one from Sea To Summit is a teeny 7.5cm by 17cm when rolled up and weighs in at just 395g. That's seriously small and...
