Trekmates Mountain XT Series Pioneer Gore-Tex Gaiter (2012)

£25.00

It’s said the best place to save weight is on your feet, so it is worth looking for minimal weight in gaiters too – and at just 83g the Trekmates Mountain XT Series Pioneer Gore-Tex Gaiter won’t use much of your energy! Gore-Tex Paclite fabric is extremely waterproof but it tends to display its condensation on the inside quite readily. ...

Berghaus GTX Gaiter 2010

£30.00

Unlike the more traditional elasticated cuff design, Berghaus has opted for a tapered fit with its GTX Gaiter, which means no bunching of excess fabric when you tighten the easy-to-use drawcord. For me these were the best fit of all the gaiters we tested. The design makes for a close fit that I found was perfect, despite the gaiters not ...

Berghaus Bowscale

£160.00

A 2-layer Gore-Tex jacket suited to lower level walking. The less technical styling does mean that you won’t look like a lost mountain guide when out walking the dog. The face fabric is pleasantly soft and isn’t too noisy. There aren’t any vents to draw away the heat, and so it does tend to be warmer than most. The face ...

Rab Vidda

£180.00

The very lightweight jacket from Rab has a pleasant, technical look. The fit and length of the arms and body are good, and the deep, adjustable hood excellent. It’s very roomy in the chest, which will be perfect for some women. Although simply styled, the attention to detail is very apparent. The cuffs and hem are fully adjustable, the hood ...

Rab Super Dru 2008

£200.00

The Rab Super Dru is a modern classic that is very hard to beat if you’re in search of a functional, lightweight hill-walking jacket. The Super Dru is made from 3-layer eVent fabric, which controls condensation better than Gore Paclite used on some other jackets. You also get more abrasion-resistant fabric over the shoulders and sleeves. The body is longer ...

£205.00

The Quito – a new multi-activity jacket from Páramo – is an alternative to the Velez (a well-established multi-activity jacket). The Quito is designed to be lightweight for adventure racing, biking, running and climbing. As with all Páramo garments the fabric provides outstanding levels of breathability, and in Trail tests it’s only Páramo jackets that haven’t leaked! The design is ...
