Extremities Super Corbett (2015)

£55.00

FeaturesA good level of warmth was provided with the Extremities Super Corbett, and it also has a Gore-Tex waterproof lining to keep your hands dry.

North Ridge Elbrus (2015)

£120.00

FeaturesThe North Ridge Elbrus is filled with a 650+ fill power 70/30 duck down, which is less efficient than higher-priced options, and so this jacket is not the warmest, but it is light – in part because there is also no hood. But you do get Velcro cuff adjustment and a nice brushed collar area. The outer is also quite ...

Alpkit Filo (2015)

£120.00

FeaturesThe Alpkit Filo features 675+ fill power 90/10 duck down – not quite the spec of higher-priced jackets – which is why it’s a little heavier. The outer is ripstop nylon, again a slightly heavier option than pricier jackets, but you do get a removable hood, which benefits from a wired peak. The cuffs only have plain elastication rather than ...

Brasher Hill walker II GTX (2014)

£120.00

FeaturesA leather upper with minimal stitching and a Gore-Tex lining is an impressive achievement at this price. Then add in the 1210g (pair, size 11) weight and this appears even better. Better still the toe box is very well-stiffened and the outsole has well-spaced lugs and a heel breast. More stiffness in the sole would be good, though. 4/5 FitAvailable ...

Berghaus Expeditor AQ Suede (2014)

£100.00

FeaturesThe big feature here is the weight of just 1234g (pair, size 11). This has been achieved by using a mesh upper that covers a Berghaus AQ waterproof lining. It is quite a bendy boot too so there is less stiffening material to weigh it down. The studs on the outsole are widely spaced to prevent clogging, and there is ...

Dolomite Ortisei EVO GTX (2014)

£125.00

FeaturesThere is a real mountain robustness about this boot, thanks to a good stiff flex in the sole. The toe box is very stiff and generally it feels ready for a tough day on the hill. The upper is a mix of synthetic DLM fibre and suede overlays, which protects the Gore-Tex waterproof lining. The Vibram outsole has deep, well-spaced ...

Keela Saxon / Storm (2014)

£75.00

FeaturesAt just 251g (men’s L) the Keela Saxon definitely won’t weigh you down – and that is the big feature here. To save weight, however, it is a little lacking in features. So there are just two body pockets, no external stormflap on the main zip, and no pit zips. But you do get a hood with wired peak, plus ...

These are extremely well-established trousers that are very popular for hillwalking in cold and wet conditions. The Páramo Cascada uses a unique Nikwax Analogy fabric that’s extremely breathable and effective at keeping wind-driven rain out.
