Alt-Berg Mallerstang (2013)

£190.00

The Alt-Berg Mallerstang comes in five width fittings, so if you're struggling to get a pair of boots to fit, this is one to investigate more closely. It's also a great price and the performance is up there with the best. It's a well-established boot that’s built around a one-piece leather upper for durability. The ankle cuff is high enough ...

Meindl Respond XCR

£100.00

A great compromise between weight, stiffness and comfort makes these ideal for all types of walking. The initial comfort is good and improves with a wear or two; and the lacing seems to work well in conjunction with the leather ribs and the well-shaped heel to hold the foot nicely in place. A Gore-Tex XCR liner keeps puddles and dew ...

Raichle/Mammut Mtn. Trail GTX 2009

£150.00

There is actually very little between this and the Scarpa Trek, but for the same price the Mountain Trail also gets a Gore-Tex lining. This was a Raichle boot, but the brand has been absorbed by Mammut so you may see it badged as either. The boot is based around a simple nubuck leather upper without lots of stitching to ...

Brasher Lithium XCR 2009

£110.00

How light is right? For some only the lightest of products will do. For others only the most durable kit will suffice, no matter how heavy it is. For the majority of walkers the middle ground between these extremes is ideal, but finding that perfect blend of low weight and practical performance is a never-ending compromise. Brasher has long been ...

Asolo Flame GTX

£120.00

Well padded at the ankle cuff and tongue, without being over the top, and the speed lacing system is effective and easy to use, producing a stable fit every time. On the heavy side, but easy to move in, and nimble, too. The stiff midsole excels on rougher ground, yet the boots are just as pleasant to wear around local ...

Mountain Equipment Lightline

£150.00

This is a very warm duvet jacket, and it’s warmer than most others. It incorporates 250g of down insulation, and the shell is very water-resistant. The collar is also fleeced-lined. There is a little extra reinforcement on the sleeves and shoulders for extra durability. You get a removable hood too, which fitted well and had plenty of insulation. The two ...

Weighing in at just 642g (including a16g stuffsack) for a size large, this is the sort of garment that you won’t mind carrying from autumn through winter and into spring, which is essential as ...

Mountain Equipment Kongur

£260.00

The Kongur has won Trail’s winter jacket test for the past two years and for me it is still the best, particularly as it now comes with new Pro Shell fabric and as a consequence less weight. The jacket has a little more length than many here, making it ideal for remaining protected from a winter storm. The front zip ...

Raichle Mount Trail GTX

£140.00

This 3-season boot took 4th place back in TrailApril 06. It benefits from a Gore-Tex waterproof lining to guarantee dry feet, and that higher level of waterproofness makes this ideal for those walking day after day in very wet conditions. Like all the top-end Raichle boots this offers much of what most walkers will want. So you get a very ...
