Regatta Wayseeker (2013)

£50.00

New for 2013, the Wayseeker is competitively priced, but in performance it's outgunned by the more expensive jackets. The Isolite fabric keeps water out, but is not particularly breathable and the zip is backed up by a flimsy storm flap that allows wind-driven rain in. The hood keeps the head dry but has no protection for the eyes or face ...

Regatta Lady Ultra-Max Low X-LT (2013)

£65.00

Brand new, lightweight and breathable walking shoes that feel comfortable from the first wear. They’re fairly soft shoes and aren’t particularly supportive, making them best-suited to low-level trails and casual walking. There’s plenty of space at the toes for women with broader feet, and the heel cup is stable and comfortable so will hold your heels in place well with ...

Regatta Harvey II (2013)

£50.00

One of the warmer jackets out there due to the fleece backing on the fabric. So ideal for a cool morning or higher level walk but a better bet for those that run cool in summer. It’s well featured with good pockets that also double as vents, Velcro on the cuffs and a drawcord hem. The sleeves will just about ...

Regatta Teja X-ert Performance (2012)

£110.00

This is a very comfortable jacket made from soft and slightly stretchy 2-layer fabric. The long fit easily covers the hips and there’s plenty of room in the arms for easy movement. The fabric breathes fairly well and there’s a mesh lining to help wick away sweat. There are also mesh-lined pit-zips. It’s got a decent-sized, fully adjustable hood which ...

Regatta Geo Extol Trousers (2012)

£50.00

A great choice for UK hillwalkers. The slimline fit looks great both on and off the hill, and the really stretchy fabric is great for energetic walking. Definitely worth a look if you’re petite as they’re available in a shorter-than-most leg length at only 27in. The fabric feels tough and durable, and they’ve got reinforced panels on the knees. Noticeably, ...

Regatta Kinetic (2012)

£60.00

With no waterproof liner and a soft, flexible sole unit, the Kinetic is a very light shoe. It’s more a trail-running shoe than a dedicated walking shoe, but this doesn’t mean it won’t do a good job of both, depending on conditions. It obviously lets water in immediately, which isn’t good if you’re squeamish about wet feet; but it drains ...

Regatta Gravitator (2012)

£65.00

One of the lightest tops out there and good for warmer conditions, with thin fabric and great stretch. A lack of membrane technology, coupled with the relatively open fabric weave, creates great levels of breathability, although at the expense of some windproofing. If the weather turns very cold or windy, you may need to slip a shell over the top. ...

Regatta Adventure Tech 35 (2011)

£50.00

A basic-looking pack with all the usual features you would hope to find on a 35-litre pack, but at a more reasonable price. You get a suspended mesh back system, hydration pack-compatibility, a rain cover and somewhere to store your poles. What does suffer, however, is a little reassurance in the quality stakes. The fabric used does feel noticeably thinner ...

Regatta Alpha Pro VXT 2011

£95.00

Regatta’s new boot for 2011 – the Alpha Pro VXT – marks the first time the brand has used Vibram soles – and they’ve certainly chosen to shout about it with bright yellow panels splashed throughout the rubber. Colour aside, the lugs are suitably deep and widely spaced to give good grip on muddy ground, though the heel breast is ...

Regatta Ghyllbeck

£75.00

Okay for most general walking. They’re never going to set the world alight, but if you’re planning on mostly walking at lower levels then they will be fine. The midsole offers enough flex for them to be comfortable on harder ground, but will lead to fatigue if walking on rough ground for long periods. There is quite a bit of ...

Regatta Lady Apocalypse X-LT

£65.00

Very reasonably priced shoes, the Lady Apocalypse stand out from the crowd with nicely styled soft shell uppers. The use of soft shell fabric means that they’ll offer great breathability, and feel incredibly comfortable too, with a supportive structure that instantly forms to the shape of your foot from the very first wear. They repel water very well too. The ...

Regatta Airbrake

£56.00

The Airbrake doesn’t immediately feel like a standard soft shell, with a face fabric that, although plenty stretchy enough, has a hardness to it and is quite noisy when you move. The shiny surface did give it a little extra waterproofing, at least for the test duration over a few damp, misty mornings, and it also makes it a little ...

Regatta Apocalypse Mid

£70.00

Generous sizing and very soft uppers make the Apocalypse Mid feel comfortable straight from the box, albeit rather like a pair of loose slippers. They’re unique in this selection because the uppers are made from a soft shell fabric. Coupled with a waterproof lining, this helps them stay waterproof, but also makes them feel rather lacking in support. The fairly ...

Regatta Formation X-LT 2011

£70.00

The Regatta Formation X-LT weighs 1044g (pair, size 11); Isotex waterproof lining; suede and mesh upper; stiff, supportive heel cup and toe box; rand on toe for durability; outsole has widely spaced lugs for grip in mud without clogging. But sole is bendy so not ideal on rockier ground; a more pronounced heel breast would improve braking; Isotex less breathable ...

The Regatta Masquerade X-LT weighs 1424g (pair, size 11); oiled nubuck leather upper with minimal stitching for maximum durability; Isotex waterproof lining; toe box offers decent protection; good cushioning; outsole has reasonably deep and widely spaced lugs for grip in mud. But the sole is quite bendy so this is not ideal on rockier ground; upper is not as supportive ...

Regatta X-Ert 35 Litre

£55.00

A budget bag that aims high with some features you’d only expect on a higher-end pack. Padding is good on the hips although not really long enough to stretch around. Shoulder section is too tight across the neck. The rear zip pocket is plenty big enough, although its opening is way too small. There are also a couple of slender ...

Regatta Descend II

£100.00

A low-priced jacket that uses PU waterproofing, the Descend II handles general wet weather well enough, although it wasn’t tested in any monsoon conditions. It did tend to get fairly warm and a little sweaty after strenuous activity. There are stretch panels, although they don’t seem to be in the right places – across the shoulder as opposed to under ...

Regatta Masquerade X-LT

£90.00

Plenty of padding make the Masquerade feel instantly comfortable, and the fairly roomy fit is best-suited to broader feet. There’s noticeably less heel support than some, but this will suit walkers who go for relaxed comfort above all. The sole provides good shock absorption, suiting them to hard ground, and gripping better on rock than grass. The Isotex lining is ...

Regatta Boundary

£65.00

The Boundary has a really soft fabric, with a great feel that’s more akin to a sweater than a jacket, albeit with a decent amount of stretch. The DWR coating does shed rain, although anything more than the lighter showers we tested it in and we suspect the seams will leak first. Warmth levels are decent with fleece backing providing ...

Regatta Mania 2010

£60.00

The Regatta Mania multi-activity jacket uses Isolite 5000 fabric, which is waterproof and breathable; mesh lining improves comfort; hood rolls into collar; small chest pocket; two hip pockets; reflective printing; pit zips. But 508g (size L) is heavy; lower pocket access is easily obscured with rucksack belts; hood movement and sleeve movement are not as good as in higher-priced options.

Regatta X-Ert 25L rucksack

£50.00

Quite a big, heavy pack but the X-ert is exceedingly comfortable, courtesy of a well-padded, adjustable harness. It’s well-featured, with useful bellowed side pockets, walking pole attachments, a single pocket in the lid and an easy-to-use single buckle for the main compartment. It has a concealed key pocket and a useful rain cover stowed beneath the main compartment. The back ...

Regatta Lady Formation X-LT

£65.00

A forgiving and slightly sloppy last means these are best-suited to women with wide feet. Unfortunately the lacing system is awkward, making it quite hard to get any support across the forefoot. They’re comfortable from the box, though, with plenty of mesh in the uppers to help your feet breathe. The midsole is very soft, especially across the toes, and ...

Regatta Leonie II

£55.00

A nice-fitting jacket made from Regatta’s waterproof Isolite 5000 fabric. It’s a heavy jacket, but it packs down easily and some will prefer the extra protection offered by the mesh lining. Less breathable than many, but the mesh-lined pockets and underarm zips offer a welcome flow of air and Velcro adjustable cuffs pull up easily to the elbows. Pockets are ...

The Regatta Cross Stones JNR is a stylish girls’ boot with a reasonable ankle cuff and a waterproof lining. There is a good level of protection at the toe as well. The outsole has a decent pattern of lugs for easier terrain. Use this on forest trails and when sticking to the paths on the fells and it would offer ...
