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

For years I've run and biked and struggled to see properly. It doesn't really matter on a nice day when you're pootling along, but when the light levels drop, you p;lunge into a copse of trees, or...

SPI Belt 188 16th Oct 2013 SPI Running Pouch

There's not a whole lot that I can write about this belt apart from the fact that it's a great little idea. So it's a sunny day and you are heading out for a run. None of your articles of clothing...

Magicshine MJ886 188 20th Sep 2013 Magicshine MJ886 Headtorch

A while back I tested a Magic Shine MJ880 bike light. I was impressed. It was very bright, well made, light weight and affordable to boot. So I had high expectations of this head torch. First off...

Garmin 910 XT 188 19th Sep 2013 Garmin Forerunner 910 XT Sportswatch

Garmin Forerunner 910 XT A month or two back I reviewed the Garmin Fenix GPS watch which was aimed at runners and outdoors folk (walkers, hunters, fisherman etc). It was great, but had its...

Inov8 Windshell 188 17th Sep 2013 Inov-8 Windshell

I've run in a few windshells over the years and have to say that whist they may have provided a barrier between me and the wind, that's about all they have done. Generally speaking running tops do...

Raidlight Ultra Omo 1 188 10th Sep 2013 Raidlight Ultra Olmo 12 Hydration Rucksack

In a recent review for some Inov-8 shoes I mentioned an upcoming mountain marathon in the Pyrenees that I had been training for. Just as my runs started to really pick up in distance, to the...

Strava 18th Jul 2013 Strava

Strava is a a piece of software that’s quite literally revolutionised my running and biking. I’ve had a smartphone for a while and had experimented with various GPS tracking devices which tell...

Inov8 Trailroc 245 188 12th Jul 2013 Trailroc 245 Running Shoes - Inov-8

Back in April I went to a free natural running clinic and then as a result got some Trailroc 245’s to review. At the start of the year I started running much more consistently. I’ve always...

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

Garmin now offer a bewildering array of GPS sports watches. The Fenix is aimed at a cross section including runners, bikers, walkers, fishermen and hunters! OK, so I don’t really fall into the...

Craft - active-run-hybrid-jacket188 15th May 2013 Active Run (AR) Hybrid Jacket - Craft

I find it strange that a brand can remain pretty much under the radar (well my radar at least) yet be producing some top notch kit. I recently reviewed a pair of their gloves that were outstanding...

TNF Single Track GTX 188 17th Apr 2013 The North Face Single-Track GTX XCR Running Shoes

Most of the running I do is off road, and when I say off road, I mean wet, muddy, tussocky, snowy, damp, boggy, rocky, and did I mention wet, as opposed to nice dry and even trails. However,...

Inov8 Bear Grip 200 180 9th Apr 2013 Inov-8 Bear Grip 200

When speaking to Inov-8 about needing a pair of shoes to cope with the unusual amounts of snow we’ve been having, and the mud that is likely to follow during the thaw they mentioned the Bear...

Craft Hybrid Weather Glove 200 27th Mar 2013 Craft Hybrid Gloves

Every now and then a bit of kit comes by that really stands out. These gloves fall into that category. So simple, yet so effective. They are a basic glove with a couple of very, very useful...

Salomon Speedcross 188 5th Mar 2013 Salomon Speedcross 3 Running Shoes

Salomon Speedcross 3 A while back I reviewed a pair of Salomon Fellcross running shoes. I complained in the review that the tread was not very good on wet rock. The guys at Salomon suggested I try...
