Rab Shadow Hoodie (2015)

£140.00

FeaturesThe Rab Shadow Hoodie has almost everything you could dream of with its hood, two huge chest pockets and highly abrasion-resistant material. There is no external third smaller chest pocket, but you do get an inside chest pocket which is very large and could be used for compass, GPS receiver or phone. The drawback is all that extra weight if ...

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. So you get two large chest pockets, a hood and a close fit to allow active movement without riding up. There is no third chest pocket, though, which is a surprise ...

Mountain Equipment Scorpion (2015)

£135.00

FeaturesI would always choose a fleece with a hood, but if you don’t want one then the Mountain Equipment Scorpion is the best option around.

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 ...

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.

Montane North Star (2015)

£240.00

Features The outer shell is more water-resistant than most, which is good as the down used does not have the water-resistant treatment some jackets offer. The hood gets volume adjustment, face drawcords and stiffened peak, and can be rolled down and secured at the collar. The cuffs have tab adjusters. All that for 565g (size L) is impressive. 4/5 FitThe ...
