Eurohike Adventurer II 200

£20.00

This synthetic sleeping bag from Eurohike is heavy and not as warm as some. It has lots of creature comforts, though, including a concealed  pillowcase, an insulated hood and shoulder baffle, and a two-way zip. The softness of the lining and shell is excellent too.

Khyam Lightbag 150

£20.00

Despite its name, this synthetic sleeping bag from Khyam is actually quite heavy. However, it packs down small and keeps you warm enough, helped by the drawcord hood and shoulder baffle. The cotton inner, which feels really pleasant against your skin, is excellent, although the outer rustles a lot when you move.

£33.00

The Coleman Exponent Non Stick Cook Kit Plus is a two-person pan set that includes 3 and 2.5 litre pots with lids plus a frying pan and a pan grip. The pans have a non-stick finish and circular grooves so that they stick to pan supports better. One lid fits both the frying pan and the larger pan, thanks to ...

Gelert Core 45+10 2008

£35.00

This rucksack has a good adjustable Cool Air back system; lots of padding on back and hipbelt; wand pockets; side compression straps; snow-lock extension; twin main compartments; floating lid with internal and external pockets and stowed rain cover. But 1800g is very heavy; do you need the adjustable back length, base compartment and bellows side pockets that add all this ...

The Vango Traversa 35 rucksack has a medium back; comfy shoulder straps; top zip pocket; 2 pole or ice axe loops, front daisy chain, 2 mesh side pockets, comfy hipbelt, removable back stiffener, drawcorded bottom part, red rain cover. But it’s quite heavy at 1351g; undersized by 5 litres at a tested capacity of 30 litres – might not be ...

Regatta RSX135

£40.00

This daysack comes with the usual set of features. It has a nice selection of good-sized pockets making the pack functional on the hill, but without making it too fussy and over-complicated. The side ones will hold a one litre Nalgene bottle, while the front pocket is big enough to allow you to keep your OS map handy. Although the ...

Robens Winnipeg 45 2008

£40.00

This rucksack weighs 1500g; adjustable back system with airflow chimney; well-padded back and hipbelt; mesh wand pockets; rain cover in base; hydration system-compatible; external, internal lid pocket; superb price. But some other sacks are lighter or allow more airflow around the back; do you need an adjustable back system on such a small capacity sack?

Vango Airvent 35

£45.00

Unusually, this daysack features a snow lock extension for the mouth of the pack along with a compression strap. This is a really useful, important feature and will prevent rain entering even if you overfill it. The ventilated back system has shoulder straps, a chest strap and hipbelt, which all provide basic adjustment and padding where needed. There are fastenings ...

Highlander Neptune

£50.00

This is a relatively lightweight kit bag made from a not very puncture-resistant fabric that is welded at the seams to create a waterproof design. The main closure is a rolltop design to again ensure waterproofness. You get a removable shoulder strap, and you could carry the bag on the shoulders with the standard carry handles. But the main closure ...

Blacks Roc 35 Air

£50.00

The back system of this daysack is quite adjustable. Both the shoulder and chest straps can be altered to get a more precise fit. The hipbelt offers good padding, inward-pulling adjustment and a purse. The inward-pulling straps make the hipbelt easier to adjust and use. The pack’s main entry comes with a snow lock extension to keep out rain even ...

Demon Bracken

£50.00

These three-season leather boots from Demon are very low at the ankle, but still reasonably supportive. They feel good from the off and get even better with distance. Simple lacing allows a stable fit with limited toe banging, even downhill. A lower cut boot that works best for easier going and low-level walking, yet has enough midsole to venture on ...

Contour Fell

£50.00

These fabric boots from Contour are not the best fitting, being broad and roomy at the toe, yet with a fairly narrow mid section. They’re not helped a lot by the lacing, which uses only five eyelets rather than the usual six. They’re rather heavy and that broad toe makes them feel quite clumsy. The midsole is pretty flexible, making ...

Deuter Groden 35

£50.00

This daysack from Deuter comes with the company’s excellent Aircomfort concave back system, which feels both comfy and cool. The shoulder straps are well shaped and have just the right amount of padding, and the hip belt spreads the load well. Although it has a pocket for a hydration reservoir, there’s no outlet or routing for a tube. Otherwise it’s ...

Ortlieb Pack Rack

£54.00

Ortlieb leads the field in waterproof luggage, so this kit bag has a roll-top closure to keep the contents dry. You also get waterproof seams and the whole bag is made from super-tough waterproof fabric. The roll-top opening allows easy access to the inside, while the removable shoulder strap and grab handles are good. But the roll-top closure cannot be ...

Hi-Tec V-Lite Fasthike Mid WP

£55.00

These fabric boots from Hi-Tec are long in the foot, but otherwise a good fit. They’re not as padded as some, and therefore don’t feel as good from the box, but they do wear in quite quickly. It takes a while to get the lacing right, but once sorted they feel supportive and stable. Waterproof leather keeps rain/dew at bay, ...

Native Planet Guide 45 2008

£55.00

This rucksack has a padded back system with airflow chimney; wide hipbelt with pockets; mesh wand pockets; bellows side pockets; compression straps; two zipped front pockets and Velcro front stash pocket; external and internal lid pockets; rain cover; hydration system-compatible. But 1930g is extremely heavy; some have more airflow; do you really need all those pockets?

Peter Storm Skiddaw II

£60.00

A roomy but very comfortable boot with traditional good looks and it will do a fine job if you do most of your walking at lower levels or on good paths. Higher up the mountain it is challenged by a lack of midsole stiffness that means your foot will feel every uneven step or sharp rock. It’s a light boot, ...

Tatonka Tivano

£60.00

Unusually, the back system of this women’s-fit daysack actually allows you to alter its length, making it possible to get a more precise fit. It will also appeal to the taller females out there. There is a good selection of pockets (the side ones in particular are gigantic). The base of the pack has a zipped opening to access items ...

Blacks Laughton Sympatex

£60.00

These boots from Blacks have lots of padding – particularly in the tongue and ankle cuffs – and an averagely broad fit, making them ultra-comfortable. The uppers are also very supportive. They’re definitely more at home on softer trails and good surfaces. The low-ish ankle cuff doesn’t feel as supportive as some, and the midsole flexes a little too much ...

Tatonka Barrel

£60.00

This kit bag looks about as tough as you can get, thanks to the 1000 denier tarpaulin material, but in our puncture tests it was not as good as expected. The oversized handles allow the holdall to be carried as a backpack, but you get a pair of dedicated shoulder straps too which although sewn on can be folded into ...

Blacks Kilimanjaro Sympatex

£60.00

These three-season leather boots from Blacks are pretty comfortable, with a secure, narrow heel and broad, roomy toe. The ankle cuffs are a little harsh though, and the lacing system rather fiddly. They perform OK, but the flexible midsoles give very little support on rough ground and don’t power you forward like some. The full-grain leather uppers are beaten on ...

The North Face Aleutian 2009

The Aleutian 3-season synthetic sleeping bag has a slim mummy shape and feels warm. The full-length zip has a draught baffle behind it, runs smoothly with few instances of snagging and has Velcro at the top to keep it secure. The hood is well-shaped and protective, cinching in around the face via a bungee cord to keeps its shape and ...
