First test: Coleman Caucasus 2 (2014)

As the price of super-lightweight backpacking tents continues to rise beyond the budgets of many people, the ability of lower-priced tent manufacturers to come up with well-designed products is coming under the spotlight. Coleman has released a range of backpacking tents with prices from %XA3130 to %XA3200, which is around half the cash being demanded by the superlight manufacturers. But...

The North Face Banchee 50 (2014)

The North Face%X92s Banchee 50 is designed for light and fast backpacking forays according to the manufacturer, but this is not the lightest sack available as it weighs in at 1547g, which is heavier than many lightweight 50 litre rucksacks. But you are getting a superb set of features here, which many lighter rucksacks cannot boast. Firstly the back system...

Lightwave Fastpack 50 (2014)

Lightwave%X92s Fastpack range is designed for winter trips or lightweight weekend backpacking trips, and they benefit from being lighter than the average with this 50 litre version weighing in at 1156g. This sack also appears to be larger in volume than some other 50 litre sacks so you may even feel the Fastpack 40 at %XA3120 is big enough. The...

Sleeping bags

Hi,

This is no doubt a question that gets asked alot but I am struggling to find the answer.  I am after a sleeping bag, max £100, lightweight and 2/3 season.  I am a mountain biker and walker and have a few wild bivi camps planned and need something that i can easily carry when on a bike. 

Initial thoughts are TNF Lynx or Marmot Cloudbreak 30 but if anyone has any other suggestions that would be appreciated or if you have any feedback on my two choices.

Thanks in advance

Stu
