Lowe Alpine Cerro Torre 65:85 (2013)

£190.00

When carrying heavy loads for days or weeks at a time the design of a rucksack’s back system is paramount, as it is only in these conditions that any flaws in the design drastically affect comfort and stability of the load. So Lowe Alpine has developed the Axiom back system, which is built to carry the heaviest loads in the ...

£200.00

The Teton signals Lowe Alpine’s return to the clothing sector of the outdoor industry. The jacket is made from Triplepoint Eco, a 3-layer laminate with a recyclable Sympatex membrane inside to keep the rain out.

First test: Lowe Alpine Teton (2013)

£200.00

It’s been a topsy-turvy few years for Lowe Alpine, with changes of ownership resulting in the brand ditching its clothing while maintaining its well-established range of rucksacks. The Teton marks the brand’s return to the waterproof clothing market; but with so many manufacturers’ products in outdoor shops across the country, does this jacket have the staying power? The Teton is ...

Lowe Alpine Travel Trekker II 70 (2012)

£170.00

While the other duffels in this test are relatively straightforward affairs, this multi-function bag is a combined rucksack / carryall with enough hidden compartments, nets and storage spaces to house Jason Bourne’s passport collection. This versatility – combined with a total 70 litres of space available – makes the Lowe Alpine Travel Trekker II 70 a viable option for a ...

Lowe Alpine Flash 2010

£200.00

Lowe Alpine’s Triplepoint Dynamic appeared in the autumn of 2009, and now it is pretty well-established as a great fabric. It has antimicrobial properties too, therefore it should not get so smelly when left damp in a rucksack. It is also very soft and flexible. But the real bonus of the Lowe Alpine Flash is the price, as this makes ...

Lowe Alpine Quantum 2010

£160.00

The Lowe Alpine Quantum is the least wind-resistant garment here, which means it allows air to pass through easily so it’s ideal when wearing a soft shell under a waterproof hard shell. DesignThe green fabric used in the Lowe Alpine Quantum is Polartec Powershield, but compared to other jackets that use this fabric it is far less wind-resistant, which means ...

Low Alpine Flash 2010

£200.00

Lowe Alpine has used more waterproof and breathable fabrics than most other brands put together. My first Lowe Alpine Mountain Cap back in the early Nineties was made of Gore-Tex. Next Lowe made everything from Triplepoint, before switching to eVent for a couple of seasons. Then they swapped back to Gore-Tex again while retaining some Triplepoint waterproofs within their range. ...

LOWE ALPINE CHAMONIX

£220.00

Review: We really liked the soft feel of the two-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric, which is mesh-lined. The hood isn’t as deep as some but it’s easily adjustable and comfortable and doesn’t rustle too badly. The lower pockets are covered up by a rucksack belt, the top ones are a bit high for easy access and there’s no map pocket. ...

Lowe Alpine Arête 2009

£200.00

While fashion says shorter jackets are the ones to be seen in, if you want to stay dry a longer jacket is best. The Lowe Alpine Arête is longer than most jackets here so you are well protected. It has four external pockets too so there is plenty of storage space. Add on a helmet-compatible Swivel Hood and this could ...

Lowe Alpine Arete

£200.00

Good high collar and fleece chinguard, while the waist drawcord ensured a close fit. Adjustable peaked hood is great. The Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric was a bit rustly, though. Although fairly heavy, the Arete was a joy to walk in. Four outer pockets means you can stow hat and gloves easily, while still having room to keep your hands warm. ...

£270.00

Designed specifically for Alpinism, the Lowe Alpine Climb Pro winter jacket packs down to just 560g so you won’t mind carrying it in your rucksack or wearing it while climbing. It’s built with Gore-Tex Pro Shell, so it is about as good as it gets for condensation control. You get a pair of large chest pockets that can be easily ...

£220.00

The Lowe Alpine Chamonix is the sort of general-purpose jacket that many people want as it is comfortable, practical and you can throw it on and forget about it. It is built around 2-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell, which is superb in terms of breathability and waterproofness while the mesh lining adds welcome comfort. It’s built for wild weather too with ...

Lowe Alpine Fusion

£220.00

The Lowe Alpine Fusion comes with good adjustments and the Gore-Tex Pro Shell feels good. It is well-specced to cope with pretty foul weather, yet still feels light and compact in a rucksack. Excellent hood and air vents at the back of the upper arm.

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. The Fusion blends a Gore Paclite body and hood with Gore Pro Shell on the shoulders, for maximum weight saving while maintaining good condensation control on the shoulders. Like most jackets we ...

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 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. The mesh lining ensures it feels comfortable worn over a base layer, and the fleece-lined ...
