Lowe Alpine Cholatse II 55:65 (2014)

£100.00

Lowe Alpine has always made great packs, and the Cholatse II 55:65 is no exception.

Lowe Alpine Triplepoint Pant (2014)

£80.00

Using Lowe Alpine’s well-established Triplepoint Ceramic fabric, these trousers offer top-level waterproofness and breathability at a good price.

Lowe Alpine Yocton 35 (2014)

£70.00

A great-looking, slimline pack with robust face fabric, devoted to moving light and fast rather than with all mod cons. There’s no rain cover, for one thing. Nothing is chunky here; the shoulder straps are narrow with very minimal padding, and the attachment and compression straps are also slim and lightweight, as are the clips which connect them. It sits ...
