Regatta Invent

£35.00

This windproof fleece from Regatta is a good fit, with just the right amount of room in the arms and body. The high collar is nice, but the cuffs are loose and the lining feels a bit scratchy against the skin. Performs remarkably well for the price. Not as warm and wind-resistant as some, so not suited to really cold ...

Trangia Trangia

£40.00

The Trangia is one of the most eternally popular camping stoves on the market, although it’s not to everyone’s taste. It is extremely simple, can’t go wrong and comes complete with a set of two pans, a frying pan that doubles as a lid, plus a perforated handle. It’s nearly impossible to knock over too. The built-in windshield makes it ...

Grivel Munro

£40.00

This ice axe has been Trail’s favourite ice axe for the last couple of years and it continues to set the pace on the slopes this winter. It wins as it would be very difficult to equip an ice axe any better for the typical British winter walker. You get the basic set of features that all winter walkers need ...

Alpkit Carbonlite

£43.00

At just £43 for a pair, this trekking pole is an absolute bargain. But it offers more than just a low price tag, as it also only weighs in at 400g, which is exceptionally lightweight. The low weight comes from the carbon pole shafts, which are intrinsically lightweight as well as being very stiff compared to other poles. They pack ...

Páramo Explorer Pull On

£60.00

Typically of Páramo, this fleece mid layer is dedicated to being functional on the hill. At around 484g it is reasonably lightweight. It can also be worn inside-out if you find it a little too warm. The fabric is very durable and wind-resistant, and will keep light drizzle at bay too. It is a smock design, which allows a large ...

Primus Eta Express 2009

£60.00

The Primus Eta Express is the one-person version of the two-person Eta Power stove, and both are superbly efficient due to the use of heat exchangers on the base of the pans. The burner on the Eta Express is identical to the Primus Express with Ignition burner. So it is the pans and the windshield that are the key features ...

This fleece mid layer weighs 498g (size L); Polartec Thermal Pro provides more insulation than some other fleece mid layers; Powerstretch side panels for extra-close fit and freedom of movement; chest pocket; elasticated hem; drawcord collar; very fluffy style. But not as practical as some others (no large pockets; Powerstretch does not extend over shoulders), not as fashionable as some ...

Páramo Torres Gilet 2010

£75.00

The Torres Gilet can be used for layering over a Páramo waterproof garment or worn directly over a base layer. Either way it will deliver fast and light insulation to the torso without being weighed down by sleeves or a hood. DesignAs with all gilets there are no sleeves, and unlike other jackets here there is no hood either. The ...

Regatta Seistan

£75.00

More waterproof than soft shell and as a waterproof it performs quite well, with a three-layer membrane fabric, taped seams and a very good, adjustable hood. As a soft shell, though, it fails to provide any real insulation, and is nothing like as breathable as some. It’s very adjustable with Velcro cuffs and a drawcord hem, and the hood is ...

Mammut Base Jump Pant

£100.00

These women’s walking trousers have an ankle cuff that’s adjustable using a Velcro tab and an expandable zip. The ankle cuffs are also reinforced on the inside leg, making them suitable for rugged mountaineering use. The waist has been designed with belt loops, elastication and loops for braces, and there is also a zip fly with press stud fastening. The ...

Markill Phoenix

£105.00

This is a true multi-fuel stove as it can use gas as well as all the flammable liquids. This is an ideal combination if you want one stove for a weekend away as well as something with more punch and choice for longer trips. It’s a respectable weight at 426g for the burner and fuel pump, and packs down pretty ...

Keela Prosport

£110.00

This lightweight waterproof weighs is made from a four-way stretch fabric called ProStretch, which is waterproof and breathable with taped seams. This fabric allows a closer fit without restricting body movement, which is ideal for fast, lightweight hill action. The jacket has just two outer pockets and these are large enough for maps and they provide ventilation thanks to their ...

Berghaus Nimbus Pant

£120.00

The Nimbus pretty much ticks all the boxes when it comes to desirable features for a performance hill and mountain walking trouser. The waist caters for every eventuality in terms of weight gain or loss. The waist is also elasticated and has a belt for good measure. They have a tricot-lined waistband for extra comfort, which softens the elastic waist ...

Mountain Equipment Astron Hooded/Astral Hooded 2008

£120.00

This soft shell jacket was developed specifically for those who want a soft shell that is stretchy, light and easy to pack in your rucksack – and it is one of the lightest here. It uses Polartec Power Shield fabric, which is extremely wind-resistant and very water-resistant, but most importantly it is also more breathable than the more waterproof options, ...

£140.00

This soft shell weighs 460g; water-resistant and windproof fabric; fleece-lined collar for extra comfort; glued seams for softer feel and less bulk; Velcro adjustable cuffs; small chest pocket for compass; waist pockets for maps; collar drawcord; excellent movement in sleeves. But waist pocket access is obscured with rucksack belts; no hood.

Millet Touring Hoodie

£160.00

Soft shell is such a broad category that choosing just one really depends on your definition and expected use of the jacket. For me, a soft shell is a garment that is more wind- and water-resistant than a fleece and also more durable, which allows it to be worn on the hill whenever you can get by without your waterproof ...

Montane Venture 2008

£160.00

The Montane Venture won Best Value general-purpose jacket in 2007 and it is still a superb option for the price. It’s made with eVent waterproof breathable fabric, which sits comfortably at the top of the league table of fabrics. For extra durability there are reinforced areas on the shoulders. Put it on and the scooped tail is immediately evident, as ...

Montane Super-Fly

£180.00

This lightweight waterproof jacket from Montane offers great ease of movement, especially in the arms, and the close fit and simple, lightweight design are good too. It’s a much shorter cut than many, though, and the collar, which is integral to the hood, isn’t as comfy as some. There’s a very spacious hood with a big peak that protects your ...

Mountain Equipment Morpheus/Seraph

£200.00

With this lightweight waterproof you get classic Mountain Equipment features like large chest pockets and a great hood with a stiff peak that moves really well with the head. But it is perhaps the use of Gore-Tex Pro Shell that gives this jacket the edge over previous designs, as it allows a very lightweight fabric to control condensation really well ...

It’s made from Gore-Tex Pro Shell, so you get excellent condensation control too. Better still you get a stormflap over that front zip to ...

Montane Superfly 2008

£200.00

The Montane Superfly is an extremely popular multi-activity jacket. It is made from eVent fabric, which is now well-proven for waterproofness and breathability. Some seams are bonded rather than stitched to reduce weight and bulk. There are three large chest pockets that can be easily accessed while wearing a rucksack. You also get strips of reflective material for night action ...

Mountain Hardwear Kelvinator (2012)

£220.00

MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR KELVINATOR £220 Our rating: ***** Review: A classic-looking mountain-style down jacket, complete with hood for battening down the hatches when it’s really cold outside. As it uses natural down filling inside, it is susceptible to wet conditions, but a thicker grade of face fabric means that the filling is a bit more protected than in a really lightweight ...

Nikon D60 2008

£440.00

Digital SLR cameras offer better image quality, faster performance and more creative options than a compact, and the Nikon D60 is a great example. It’s one of the smallest D-SLRs available, but it still has a solid feel, with a large handgrip. It’s not daunting to use, either – the options menu is very straightforward to navigate and although there ...
