£40.00

This kit bag has a simple layout comprising of a central lockable zip entry to the main compartment and a pair of oversized handles to allow this to be worn as a backpack. At only 930g it is a very light bag, yet it offers excellent puncture resistance. You don’t get a shoulder strap, though, or any internal compartments.   ...

Lowe Alpine Fusion

£220.00

This lightweight waterproof tips the scales at just 428g (men‘s size M), yet it boasts virtually the same level of features as other jackets in its price bracket.

This insulated jacket was designed with help from climbers Andy Cave and Pat Littlejohn. It weighs 626g (including a 12g stuffsack) and has a unique hem profile that is cut away above the leg to allow easier leg movement.

Lowe Alpine Climb Pro

£260.00

This is a new winter jacket built around Gore’s new fabric, so it is about as good as it gets for condensation control. At just 522g (men’s size L) this is very lightweight but it has the most important features for a day on the hill too. So you get a pair of large chest pockets that can be easily ...

Lowe Alpine Lightweight DryFlo Bra

£20.00

The most simple designs are often the best. The closed seam darts of this racer back sports bra, which cup the breasts, and a wide stretchy chest strap, provide comfortable shaped support for walking and more. The front is opaque and the design is definitely crop-top rather than bra, allowing it to be worn as a top, plus it has ...

Lowe Alpine Multi Pitch

£80.00

This is a very practical soft shell jacket, being reasonably lightweight, stretchy and able to fend off wind and water. Most importantly of all it is also extremely breathable, so you can wear it under a waterproof when the storm clouds roll in. It is lighter and lower in price than some similar products too. The fabric is quite thin, ...

Lowe Alpine Paradigm Pant

£65.00

These women’s walking trousers are, first and foremost, technical trousers. The waist is elasticated, extra adjustment is provided by a drawcord and there is also a button fly. The pockets are all zipped and a really good size – two hip and one back. The ankle cuff can also be expanded using a zip which will give some adjustment. The ...

Lowe Alpine Mettle Tech Pant

£55.00

These are very lightweight walking trousers. The fabric is not quite as ‘cottony’ as some, but it is far cooler than some dedicated mountain trousers. The fabric does not stretch, so you get a diamond crotch to increase freedom of movement. The fabric feels reasonably durable, too, for mountain use. An unusual feature is mesh vents inside the articulated knees. ...

Lowe Alpine Hot Grip

£40.00

This winter glove offers everything most hill-walkers will want if they prefer a built-in liner rather than a removable liner. The Hot Grip benefits from a very durable palm made from leather that looks ideal for withstanding the rigours of scrambling and roped climbing. The back of the hand and fingers is protected with cushioning to resist knocks when ice ...

£70.00

These Lowe Alpine Paradgm Pants are soft shell trousers, roomy enough to move freely in, yet snug enough to keep you warm with very good breathability. The soft inner fabric feels great against your skin and is stretchy enough to allow for even the most strenuous movement. Combined with light weight, this means you hardly notice you’re wearing them. The ...

Lowe Alpine Sierra Lite

£70.00

This soft shell jacket from Lowe Alpine is a good cut, and the snug, high, fleecy collar is great. However, it’s let down by cuffs that are too tight to pull up – an essential in this kind of jacket. Cut from a light and stretchy wind-resistant fabric, it matches the best in class for performance and handles rain slightly ...

Lowe Alpine Venture

£150.00

This lightweight waterproof jacket from Lowe Alpine is a little shorter in the body than some, but fits very well. The hood is a teeny bit on the small side, but the snug, high collar is excellent. No weather seems bad enough to faze the Venture.

Lowe Alpine Mintaka Air ND35

£55.00

This daysack from Lowe Alpine has a comfortable back system with a decent amount of padding and good lumbar support. The nicely contoured shoulder straps are good, too. Bigger busted women may not find the chest strap long enough. The Pure Air Zone back system creates a good flow of air without feeling unstable. However, this pack doesn’t have any ...

Lowe Alpine Mintaka Air 25

£50.00

This daysack from Lowe Alpine has a comfortable, simple harness and the Pure Air Zone back system is comfortable and stable. It has quite a long, narrow profile, which distributes the load evenly across your back. The best thing about it is the channelled back system, one of the most stable around. However, the cramped main compartment, small lid pocket ...

Lowe Alpine Contour Runner 25

£45.00

This daysack from Lowe Alpine is a simple design that doesn’t keep you as cool and dry as the best in class. The moulded, channelled back system is very comfortable though, and the simple webbing straps work well, even if they are pretty basic. It’s a no-thrills design that really does cut it in the hills. Compression straps tweak the ...

Lowe Alpine Arctic Trail

£100.00

This windproof fleece from Lowe Alpine is a superb fit, and the snug, high collar is good. The cuffs work well, using the stretch in the fabric to pull up and down, although some elastic would be better. The cosy feel of the Aleutian Windshield fabric is good, too. Warm, windproof with good breathability when you’re working hard. Mesh-lined pockets ...

Lowe Alpine Rockwell

This waterproof jacket from Lowe Alpine might be fractionally on the large side, but has plenty of adjustment to compensate. It’s a longer cut, which will definitely suit some, and the feel of the fabric is wonderful – not a rustle or crackle in sight.

Lowe Alpine Bear Tooth Air 35

£70.00

This daysack from Lowe Alpine has a unique adjustable back system which ensures it will fit most walkers. However, with shorter people, the lid pocket may obstruct head movement when adjusted to the shortest back lengths.

£100.00

This waterproof jacket from Lowe Alpine is now made from a lighter Triplepoint fabric, which is very comfortable to wear, even over a base layer. However, it does rustle as you walk. The overall fit is excellent too. It’s quite a long cut and looser than some, but there’s plenty of adjustment at the hem and cuffs and the hood ...

Lowe Alpine Micro Grid

£40.00

This lightweight fleece from Lowe Alpine was a snug fit next to the skin, but a little tight when worn over a lighter base- layer. The collar is a good height and fit, and the elasticated cuffs were easy to pull up and didn’t go baggy. This is a basic top with a medium-length zip and no pockets. The Aleutian ...
