Haglöfs Vertigo II GT (2014)

£130.00

The Haglöfs Vertigo II GT has proven its worth over the years, thanks to being built to take plenty of abuse. The upper’s made from leather with a synthetic tongue and there’s minimal stitching – so this should make the upper more durable than many when used on tougher outdoor terrain. The toe box is stiffer than some other shoes ...

Boreal Aztec (2014)

£110.00

The Boreal Aztec is a hillwalking workhorse with some modern design features to appeal to the less traditional hill-goer. It’s also exceptionally well-priced for what it offers, as most shoes around its price range have much less substantial designs details. The upper is made from fabric and leather, like most multi-activity shoes, but there is much more stiffness and support ...

La Sportiva Boulder X (2014)

£100.00

The La Sportiva Boulder X is designed as an ‘approach shoe’, which means it’s built to be more abrasion-resistant and to have good performance when scrambling over rocks during the ‘approach’ to a climbing crag. So for durability the upper is made from suede leather with a rubber rand enclosing most of the shoe. There’s also good stiffness in the ...

Keen Marshall WP (2014)

£110.00

The Keen Marshall WP is a very modern style of shoe with a low weight of just 970g (pair, size 11), which gives it instant appeal on the shelf and in the hand. The upper is a mix of synthetic material and an external rubber skeleton with a particularly large rubber bumper. A Keen Dry waterproof lining is provided, and ...

Berghaus Prognosis GTX (2014)

£100.00

The Berghaus Prognosis GTX weighs just 876g (pair, size 11), making it ideal for fast and light outdoor action or anyone simply wanting to save weight. The upper is made from mesh with a Gore-Tex waterproof lining and there are overlays of material to increase its durability. But it is still probably not going to be able to withstand the ...

Salomon X Ultra GTX (2014)

£115.00

The Salomon X Ultra GTX is an exceptionally light shoe at just 956g (pair, size 11), making it instantly appealing to anyone wishing to save weight or move fast outdoors. The upper is synthetic with an open mesh and a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. The upper is protected by synthetic overlays and a large rubber toe bumper, but it’s still not ...

Merrell Moab Gore-Tex (2014)

£110.00

The Merrell Moab is very much an all-round outdoor shoe. The upper has a Gore-Tex waterproof lining that’s protected by mesh to allow some ventilation, plus overlays of material for more durability. The heel cup is nice and stiff to support the foot on uneven ground while the toe box has some stiffness at the front to protect the fit, ...

Lowa Sirkos GTX (2014)

£115.00

The Lowa Sirkos GTX is a rather traditionally styled walking shoe with less versatility than some. It weighs 1056g (pair, size 11), which isn’t the heaviest here, but it does feel a little more ‘clumpy’ on the foot due to the more traditional design. The upper is made of suede leather and synthetic fabric with a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. There ...

Meindl Respond (2014)

£120.00

The Meindl Respond is very much an all-round outdoor shoe with a good range of general features. So you get a mesh upper with a waterproof lining and some suede leather overlays to provide some durability. The heel cup offers very good support for uneven ground while the toe box is less protective, but it does get a rand for ...

Salewa Wildfire GTX (2014)

£130.00

The Salewa Wildfire GTX is an extremely technical approach shoe that weighs in at 1004g (pair, size 46) while boasting an excellent set of features. The upper is made of a more hard-wearing mesh than most shoes, and it’s also protected by an external rubber cage that should increase durability further. You also get a rubber rand that encloses the ...

Teva Riva Peak Mid Event (2014)

£140.00

Teva – best known for its outstanding sandals – has also released a range of boots. Put the Riva Peak Mid eVent on, and that sandal fit is clearly an influence as the forefoot is broad, the sole has a smooth, rolling action and the heel is neatly cupped in the back of the boot. The upper is mostly made ...

Karrimor KSB Explore D30 (2014)

£140.00

The Karrimor KSB Explore D30 is very lightweight and built around a fabric upper with suede overlays. There is quite a lot of stitching on the upper so I would not expect this to be as durable as one-piece leather upper design if the boot is used on rockier ground. The toe box is very soft, though, so this is ...

Osprey Exos 58 (2014)

£140.00

I’ve been a fan of the Osprey Exos 46 for many years, and this is its bigger (58 litre) brother. For 2014 Exos packs have all had a facelift, which includes some rather comfortable cushioned mesh-covered shoulder straps. These have no hard edges so they sit beautifully on the shoulders. The hipbelt uses the same material. You get an updated ...

Mountain Hardwear Plasmic (2014)

£100.00

The Mountain Hardwear Plasmic is one of many jackets costing around £100 that weigh about 296g (size men’s L). The big difference though is that the Plasmic has a ‘normal’ fit on the body, so you can wear a fleece or other insulation underneath without all the air being squashed out. Also the pockets on the Plasmic are sealed, so ...

Craghoppers Kiwi Long/ Madigan Long (2014)

£100.00

One of the most common requests we get at Trail is for more reviews of longer waterproof jackets. So here goes! The Craghoppers Kiwi for men and Madigan for women come in a ‘standard’ version (£90) and the Long version featured here at £100. A damp derrière is a thing of the past when you are wearing this jacket – ...

Sprayway Hydrolite II (2014)

£110.00

A weight of 578g (size men’s L) makes the Sprayway Hydrolite II instantly appealing. I also like the location of the pockets as they can be easily accessed while wearing a rucksack. The hood gets a wired peak so it can be moulded to provide a really good visor, even if you’ve just unstuffed the hood from the collar or your ...

Montane Atomic (2014)

£110.00

If you want low weight and minimal cost then the £110 Montane Atomic, which tips the scales at just 328g (size L), is a winner. The fabric is Pertex Shield, which – while it can’t boast the lab test results for breathability of jackets twice its price – does offer more than most around the £100 mark. It’s a 2.5-layer ...

Vango Dry Holdall 90 (2014)

£75.00

If you’re expecting serious weather, and know your bag’s going to be exposed to it, the Vango Dry Holdall 90 could be just what you need. Thanks to welded joins, a roll-top design and a coated waterproof nylon build, this lies somewhere between a duffel and a dry bag, and is actually aimed at sailing and rafting activities as much ...

Berghaus Fastrack (2014)

£120.00

The Fastrack jacket is designed for ‘high-octane trail sports’, according to Berghaus, although at 547g (size L) it’s quite heavy for moving fast. The fabric is Berghaus’s own AQ2, a material with good waterproof and breathability lab results, although higher-priced jackets do offer better performance in this respect. There’s a mesh lining and pit zips to help manage condensation. The ...

Arc’teryx 100l Carrier Duffel 90 (2014)

£120.00

Always a stylish choice, Arc’teryx’s 100l Carrier Duffel is a masterclass in simplicity. Weighing a feathery 680g, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s simply too insubstantial to be of use. But you’d be bang wrong. The waterproof ripstop fabric delivers a great weight-to-toughness ratio, while the taped seams and subtly weather-resistant flaps and zips offer protection from the elements. Four ...

The North Face Pursuit (2014)

£140.00

The The North Face Pursuit is a lightweight jacket at 364g (size M), and it’s made from 2.5-layer HyVent fabric. Like other 2.5-layer fabrics it tends to show condensation a little more easily than 3-layer fabrics or jackets with mesh lining, but the benefit is low weight and bulk. The Pursuit costs more than some other lightweights, but the fabric ...

Eagle Creek Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL (2014)

It’s all very well having a vast 128 litre capacity, but how do you lug around all that resulting weight? The Eagle Creek Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL – a hybrid design – has found a way: it takes the lightweight simplicity of a bare duffel and fits a sturdy pair of wheels around a reinforced bottom. The result is a ...

The North Face Base Camp Duffel 90l (2014)

£145.00

TNF’s Base Camp is a long-proven contender for the duffel bag crown, and to many it’s the epitome of what a big-capacity outdoor bag should be: double-stitched, easily compressible and with a tough nylon build. This recent update is a special edition, with a few extra touches (and a heftier price tag). These tweaks consist of an updated colour palette, ...

Perhaps best known for roof racks, Swedish brand Thule now makes outdoor storage bags, and the result is this tough-looking, great-quality duffel – which comes with a 25 year warranty. The design is simple enough, with a big ‘wide mouth’ opening, sturdy grab handles and compression straps; while the stormflaps and waterproof zip (on the outer pocket) promise great weather ...

Target Dry Element/Odyssey (2014)

£110.00

It’s so hard to find a jacket that has a decent length on the body, so when you finally discover one it really is an uplifting experience. The Target Dry Element (women’s version is the Odyssey) jacket is long enough to nicely protect my groin from getting wet in the rain when I’m not wearing overtrousers, which is really useful. ...
