Páramo Maui Cargo Shorts 2011

£47.00

You cannot beat a massive, practical pocket in a pair of shorts, and the Páramo Maui Cargo Shorts get two of them! On each leg there is a cavernous pocket that allows you to easily stash an OS map and a small guidebook with space to spare. There is a dedicated mobile phone pocket too. You also get a pair ...

Eurohike Hydra 25+5 rucksack

£30.00

The Hydra features a totally waterproof main compartment which seals with a roll-top in a similar way to a dry bag. This is obviously useful in bad weather, but it’s a bit over the top for general use, adding weight and also making the main compartment fiddly to access. It’s a fairly comfortable pack, with a good channelled back system ...

Montane Dragonfly Shirt 2009

£40.00

Some base layers we looked at were designed to cover a number of activities – including skiing and yachting. But the Montane Dragonfly Shirt has obviously been designed for UK walking. Utilising two grades of Polartec Powerdry fabric, the back and arms get high-wicking fabric while the chest and underarms get a stretchier weave, which is tough and enables excellent ...

PARAMO CAMBIA ZIP-NECK

£35.00

Review: Good length sleeves and hem, and the double-sided fabric feels soft and has plenty of give in it. Cuffs are a bit baggy, though. A reversible top with one side providing more warmth and the other better moisture management. The latter performed better, wicking superbly and drying slightly quicker than the winner. Smellier and not as warm, though. VITAL ...

The North Face Toat Q4 (M FLS S/S Crew Neck)

£23.00

This is a super-light, 68g (men’s size L)  top that delivers a close fit, relatively long length and flatlocked seams to keep comfort levels high. It’s ideal for lightweight enthusiasts and as it packs down small it makes for a good back-up layer in your rucksack.

Icebreaker Bodyfit 150 Atlas

£30.00

Merino wool is a great natural fibre, and if you like fitted, lightweight T-shirts then this is a great buy. Icebreaker makes some excellent, easier-fitting tops that require a less athletic build. But this is an excellent top that’s great all year. Made in China, it’s the cheapest merino wool offering here, combining top-quality and excellent value.

Rohan Silver Fleece Zip

£45.00

Getting hot and sweaty tends to result in smelly gear, which is none too pleasant whatever the circumstances. The X-Static silver fibres in this fleece mid layer reduce odour by controlling the growth of bacteria. Apart from that smell advantage, this is a useful top for wearing under other mid layers, as it is a thin and lightweight fleece that ...

Lowe Alpine Micro Grid

£40.00

This lightweight fleece from Lowe Alpine was a snug fit next to the skin, but a little tight when worn over a lighter base- layer. The collar is a good height and fit, and the elasticated cuffs were easy to pull up and didn’t go baggy. This is a basic top with a medium-length zip and no pockets. The Aleutian ...

Rohan Bags

£49.00

These walking trousers from Rohan don’t have an elasticated waist or a belt., but they do have easily adjustable leg-lengths. The poly/cotton fabric feels comfy on the skin and they are easy to move in. Windproof, durable and amazingly rain-resistant, the Bags are ideal year-round trousers, especially if you prefer plain styles to zip-offs. Good choice of pockets, with room ...
