Dolomite Ortisei EVO GTX (2014)

£125.00

Hi Gear Map Compass (2014)

If money is really tight then the Hi Gear Map Compass will point you in the right direction. It has a smaller base plate than higher-priced compasses, which makes it more difficult to use when setting the compass between two points that are widely spaced.

When venturing out onto more featureless terrain a sighting compass allows far more accurate bearings to be taken over long distances.

First test: Fjällräven Keb Loft Jacket (2014)

When the thermometer goes negative, down insulation is what most of us turn to. But down loses some of its insulating performance when wet, making it less than ideal for the UK; and it’s pricy. Recently, outdoor brands have tried to make synthetic insulation as efficient as down, and the latest attempt comes from Fjällräven. G-Loft Supreme is a synthetic ...
