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...

Rab - atmos jacket quince 3rd Nov 2014 Rab Atmos Maya Jacket

Introduction I'll dispense with the intro about lightweight gear as it's a recurring theme in many of my reviews. Suffice to say that this one fits the bill neatly. A minimalist waterproof jacket...

Rab Boreas Pull On Breaker 20th Oct 2014 Rab Boreas Pull-on Jacket

Introduction If you've read any of my other reviews you'll know that I am a keen advocate of lightweight kit. The Boreas Pull-on is just that. Weighing just 259g and packing down into a fist...

Salomon XA PRO 3D ULTRA 2 GTX W 5th Sep 2014 XA PRO 3D ULTRA 2 GTX® W Running Shoes - Salomon

At first I found the Saloman quite stiff to wear around the ankle but actually that is part of the durable nature of the shoe and has caused no problems. The lace system means there is always a...

Rab Neutrino 400 Sleeping Bag 15th Jul 2014 Rab Neutrino 400 Sleeping Bag

Introduction It seems fitting that after writing a Blog piece on supporting local businesses I should now be writing a review of a company who, as one of their selling points, point out that...

Salomon Twin Skin Shorts 11th Jul 2014 Salomon Trail Twinskin Short

Introduction Shorts are shorts right? Wrong. Whilst it's perfectly possible to run in pretty much any old shorts if you are running fast or light or far, or any combination of the three then it...

rab-mens-vapour-rise-lite-alpine-jacket-maya-l 103202 3rd Jul 2014 VR Lite Alpine Maya Jacket - RAB

Introduction I have two young boys so whenever we are out and about I am invariably carrying my kit and theirs, be it spare jackets on a day-walk, or full camping gear if out overnight. It means...

Salomon-Advanced-Skin-Lab-Hydro-5-Set-Hydration-Systems-AW13-L35187500 2nd Jul 2014 Salomon Advanced Skin S-Lab Hydro 5 Set + Hydration Backpack

Introduction I'd been on the look out for something that I could run in, with front pockets on the chest, for a while. When I'm running I generally don't like to stop, especially whilst racing,...

Smart Wool Merino NTS Baselayer 12th Jun 2014 Smart Wool Merino NTS Baselayer

A Rambling Introduction  on brand loyalty As event organisers Matt Heason and I spend oodles of time designing eye-catching documents to woo potential sponsors.  We have solid stats on ticket...

Didriksons Doanu Pant 16th May 2014 Didriksons Donau Pants - Waterproof Trousers Review

Who Are Didriksons? I'd not come across the brand Didriksons before, but they are apparently pretty big in their native country of Sweden where they've been going for 101 years! These Donau Pants...

Wild-Running-mid-res 15th May 2014 Wild Running Guidebook by Jen & Sim Benson

Introduction / The Authors Ironically yesterday I reviewed a book co-authored by Adrian Berry (Peak Bouldering by Rockfax), and today I am reviewing one with a picture on the front cover of his...

Muc Off 10th Apr 2014 Muc-Off Bike Cleaning Products

I was watching the new Steve Peat documentary film Won't Back Down last week and was somewhat taken aback to see a bottle of Muc-Off in some footage of Steve way back in the early nineties....

Salomon Trail Tight 21st Mar 2014 Salomon Trail Tight Review

When I started running a couple of years ago I wouldn't be seen dead in a pair of tights. I think that was because the vast majority of tights on the market were slightly baggy Ron Hills (I don't...

Salomon Spikecross 2 29th Jan 2014 Salomon Spikecross Running Shoes

I've run in both Speedcross and Fellcross, so it was a bit of a surprise to hear that Salomon had another varient on the shoe - the Spikecross. Essentially it's much the same as the Fellcross, but...

Running Food 28th Jan 2014 Running Food - Chia Charge

I was half way through a 21 mile race a couple of months back and was struggling. Approaching a check point a friend caught me up and I managed to stay with her for about a mile at which point she...
