Páramo Bora Hoodie (2015)

£100.00

FeaturesOver-the-head smock designs such as the Páramo Bora Hoodie do have real advantages, as they allow a large chest pocket to remain easily accessible while wearing a rucksack. Here you also get a hood and a third small chest pocket. There’s also a lot you don’t get though, including adjustment on the hood, a long zip for ventilation and no ...

The North Face Litus (2015)

£95.00

FeaturesThe men’s Litus 32 and women’s Aleia 32 have a ziparound opening, which isn’t my favourite design, as I much prefer a single-buckle lid.

Osprey Stratos (2015)

£85.00

FeaturesThe men’s Stratos 34 and women’s Sirrus 36 have a ziparound opening, which some people like, while others (including myself) are less impressed by them as you can’t ‘overstuff’ the bag when needed. This sack also has a lower compartment for storing wet gear, but you can unclip the divider if preferred to create one large main compartment. You get ...

Mammut Eiswand Tech (2015)

£175.00

FeaturesThis jacket from Mammut’s Eiger range is designed for alpinism and climbing, but it also works really well as a hillwalking and scrambling fleece thanks to its ‘alpinist’ features.

There is also added abrasion resistance in key areas ...

First test: Scarpa Marmolada Trek (2015)

£200.00

Does the perfect boot exist? It’s hard to say; but I’ve always looked for one boot that I could wear no matter where I go on the hills. It’s a big ask, as it really depends what sort of hillwalking you mostly do and where you mostly go. But the Scarpa Marmolada Trek promises to be the perfect boot as ...

£55.00

FeaturesA good level of warmth was provided with the Extremities Super Corbett, and it also has a Gore-Tex waterproof lining to keep your hands dry.
