La Sportiva Trango Cube (2014)

Reducing weight in many products is relatively easy, but when it comes to stiff mountaineering boots there are limits to what can be achieved. Or at least that used to be the case, before La Sportiva turned to modern technology for an answer. Mountaineering boots have to be stiff to allow them to take crampons, hold an edge when climbing and...

Mammut Creon Light 45 (2014)

The Mammut Creon Light 45 looks like any other well-designed rucksack, but plonk this on the scales and it weighs just 1094g, which is far lighter than first appearances suggest. There%X92s no skimping on features here, though, as you get a back system with a mesh panel to hold the pack away from the body to create masses of airflow....

Lowe Alpine Eclipse 45:55 (2014)

The new Lowe Alpine Eclipse 45:55 has a mesh covering over a padded back panel with a wire frame to add stability to the load, and this is stiff enough to allow fairly casual packing without items digging into your back or the sack %X91barrelling%X92 too much.

Mountain Equipment Vulcan (2014)

There%X92s something retro about this new jacket from Mountain Equipment. With its chunky zips and vintage colour, from a distance it%X92s easy to mistake the Vulcan for the old-style fleece jacket that in a way it spiritually replaces.
