Jack Wolfskin Rambler 32 (2014)

£65.00

The Jack Wolfskin Rambler 32 is an excellent-value rucksack with a good feature set for the price that narrowly missed out on being featured in the final eight rucksacks. It features a suspended airflow back system that is good for controlling sweat, a pocket on the hipbelt, hydration compatibility, a rain cover, wand pockets, a zipped front compartment and a ...

Alpkit Filo (2014)

£120.00

Alpkit gear is only available directly from the manufacturer, but the price is stunning for what you get. The Filo is very warm thanks to a good amount of good-quality down, which is packed into a shell made of ripstop nylon with a water-resistant treatment. The detachable hood benefits from a wired peak, but there’s no volume adjuster and it ...

Montane Prism (2014)

£100.00

Synthetic insulated jackets are ideal as year-round garments, and the Montane Prism is one of the best all-rounders out there. It uses PrimaLoft Eco synthetic insulation that includes 50 per cent recycled fibres. The shell is made from Pertex and when combined with the insulation you get a very lightweight option at just 423g (size L). That weight includes a ...

Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man Grid Jacket (2014)

£120.00

Made from Polartec’s ‘Monkey Fur’, this jacket looks wonderfully comfortable, and as soon as you put it on it really does live up to that image. This fleece is wonderful at trapping air, so this feels very warm in still air or under a wind- or waterproof jacket. The fabric does allow a lot of air to easily pass through ...

Marmot Thermo Hoody (2014)

£100.00

The divisions between next to skin base layers, insulating mid-layers and waterproof outer layers are becoming ever more blurred as brands develop products to suit every style of outdoor activity and the specific needs of different types of users. The Marmot Thermo Hoody is a thin mid layer, but it could also be considered as a thick base layer. For ...

Berghaus Pravatile Hooded Jacket (2014)

£75.00

There are a lot of hooded fleece jackets available but not that many under £100, so at £75 the Berghaus Pravatile Hooded Jacket does have some appeal. It is made from an attractive stretch fleece that offers a good level of insulation for general hillwalking. It is not very wind-resistant, which makes it ideal for wearing under a waterproof because ...

Vaude Brenta 35 (2014)

£90.00

The Vaude Brenta 35 narrowly missed out being featured in the top eight in our test. It is a well-featured 35-litre rucksack with two hip pockets, a floating back system that adjusts, a rain cover, two wand pockets, a clipped webbing pocket on the front that is ideal for a jacket, a valuables pocket under the lid and the usual ...

Kelty Redwing 32 (2014)

£80.00

The Redwing 32 is a quirky effort from a brand continuing to make inroads into the UK outdoor market. Kelty has a strong following helped by the versatile nature of their products. It makes gear for Special Forces, so you could expect the pack to have a rather ‘desert storm’ feel to it and it does: there are many pockets, ...

Sprayway Scorch Hoodie (2014)

£75.00

The Sprayway Scorch Hoodie is made from Exo/therm Stretch. This provides a medium level of wind resistant, similar to Polartec 200 Micro, but it has a closer knit on the outside to give it more abrasion resistance, while on the inside it has a more brushed appearance. The result is that it does not feel quite as warm as Polartec ...

Sprayway Reactor (2014)

£80.00

The Sprayway Reactor has a nylon shell and Inso/therm insulation, and comes with a fixed hood and two large chest pockets. The pockets are big enough for OS maps and can be accessed while wearing a rucksack with a hipbelt. The hood gets a volume adjuster and face drawcords, but it doesn’t turn with the head as easily as would ...

OMM Classic 32 (2014)

£70.00

One for the lightweight essentialist, the OMM Classic 32 is a popular rucksack with racers and minimalists, and it earns its chops admirably in this regard. With a ‘stripped’ weight of 555g, the Classic’s secret is that its back system can be removed and used as a short sleeping mat, which obviously enhances its appeal to those used to superlight ...

The North Face Terra 35 (2014)

£90.00

The The North Face Terra 35 is a sturdy rucksack with some interesting features that no doubt will appeal to some, but light on others. You don’t get a rain cover, and the hipbelt doesn’t have any pockets; the back system doesn’t adjust (though it does come in two sizes); there’s no zipped pocket under the lid; and the back ...

Columbia Karako Pass Glove (2014)

£80.00

The Columbia Karako Pass Glove packs a punch in terms of technology. It boasts Columbia’s OutDry waterproof membrane, Omni-Heat thermal reflective lining and berber fleece insulation. The glove is then built with all these layers bonded together, so there are no loose linings to trap moisture within the materials. All this adds up to a very effective glove that feels ...

Outdoor Research Arete Glove (2014)

£75.00

The Outdoor Research Arete Glove is the only option in Trail’s review with a removable liner. This is a thin fleece glove that you could wear on its own, and as it has silicone patches on the palm it provides superb grip. This means you can whip off the shell when you need to operate a compass or GPS receiver, ...

Black Diamond Pursuit Glove (2014)

£65.00

The outer of the Black Diamond Pursuit Glove is made from a 4-way stretch soft shell fabric, which means it provides a very close fit without restricting movement – and really sets it apart from others. For extra durability you get leather, which obviously won’t be as stretchy but will be more durable in the palm area. Inside the glove ...

Rab Latok Glove (2014)

£70.00

The Rab Latok Glove has been around for a while, and the 2013 version has an improved gauntlet over the previous model. The glove is made from a synthetic outer with an eVent waterproof lining and layer of synthetic insulation. But what is most noticeable is the silicone print on the palm, which provides an exceptionally good grip on ice ...

Montane Alpine Stretch Glove (2014)

£65.00

The Montane Alpine Stretch Glove uses an extremely stretchy fabric, which means it hugs your hand. The leather palm improves durability, but only time will tell if this degree of stretch will remain durably waterproof in the long term. Inside you get PrimaLoft and fleece insulation, and it feels plenty warm enough. I found the thumb was about 1cm too ...

Marmot Exum Guide Glove (2014)

£85.00

The Exum Guide is designed for mountaineering, alpine climbing and skiing; so it’s built to take a lot of abuse, while maintaining excellent dexterity. This also makes it ideal for walkers in need of a glove that can be used to handle trekking poles or a GPS, or just to easily zip up a jacket. The body of the glove ...

Stubai White Star (2014)

£80.00

Stubai is a well-established brand. Its products are very well-priced, and they also deliver all the performance needed by those heading into the winter hills. At £80 the Stubai White Star has a straight shaft and a gently curved head. It’s strong enough to be used for belaying, so it gains the technical ‘T’ rating, but its main focus is ...

Black Diamond Raven Pro (2014)

The Black Diamond Raven Pro’s curvaceous profile and the polished finish of the cast stainless steel head are instantly appealing. It’s also pretty lightweight at 467g (size 75cm), so you won’t mind carrying this on your pack or in your hand all day. The head has a gentle curve, making it ideal for self arrest and cutting steps, although the ...

Petzl Sum’Tec (2014)

£135.00

When tackling more challenging mountaineering terrain, it’s important to have an ice axe that can be used with a rope to create a belay, while the ability to use the axe as a pair with a matching hammer is essential for climbing even steeper snow and ice. The Petzl Sum’Tec is a great example of this style of axe. It ...

Camp Magix 10 (2014)

The Camp Magix 10 is a well-priced general-purpose crampon with 10 points (including two front points), providing good grip on a wide variety of terrain. Anti-balling plates are pre-fitted, to help prevent snow from sticking to the base of them. The spikes are 2.5cm in length so they’re effective at cutting through a layer of snow to the ice beneath, ...

Stubai Twin Peaks Universal (2014)

The front points on crampons are intended to provide grip when tackling steeper slopes, but on level ground they aren’t really needed and they can be a real menace, as it’s all too easy to catch a front point on your trousers or a rock and trip over. The Stubai Twin Peaks Universal crampon has no front points, thereby avoiding ...
