Berghaus Light Trek Hydroshell (2015)

£170.00

Berghaus say they designed this new jacket with input from walkers who had completed the West Highland Way, so its focus is on moving light and fast over long distances. It lacks the Gore-Tex membrane used on Berghaus’ tougher shells but is still reliably waterproof. (That said, the brand’s much-loved Paclite jacket does most of what this does, is the ...

Sherpa Lakpa Rita (2015)

£280.00

I’ve been wearing the Lakpa Rita for over two years and if I’m heading for mountains and the forecast is dodgy, it is my go-to hard shell. It just has the whole package: a stiff, peaked hood, four taped pockets in all the right places and at the perfect dimensions, a slightly longer cut to cover most of the bottom, ...

Musto Evolution Sardinia GTX (2015)

£249.00

The Musto is a waterproof jacket that thinks it’s a soft shell. The soft face fabric is far nicer to wear than the average hard shell, and the hood is removable, meaning it can work as a warm and windproof outer layer even if it’s dry. It’s very warm, thanks to its two-layer Gore-Tex membrane and luxurious collar lining. But ...

Bergans Eidfjord (2015)

£200.00

The Eidfjord is a do-anything, go-anywhere technical jacket that is equally at home in a summer downpour as it is in a wintry squall. While it’s light and compact enough to stuff into a rucksack quickly, the Eidfjord doesn’t compromise on durability: the three-layer waterproof fabric and water-resistant zips feel robust enough to endure the rough-and-tumble of all-weather walking. The ...

Meindl X-S0 70 Mid GTX (2015)

£160.00

FeaturesGore-Tex Surround waterproof technology is built into the Meindl X-S0 70 Mid GTX, and this allows water vapour to pass through the footbed and escape through a channel above the sole unit. The result should be less sweaty feet. The upper is suede leather and mesh with good reinforcement at the toe and heel. Underfoot the Meindl Magic sole unit ...

Zamberlan Airound Mid GTX (2015)

£155.00

FeaturesAt just 1014g (pair, size 11) the Zamberlan Airound Mid GTX is extremely light. It features the new Gore-Tex Surround technology, which provides an air gap below the footbed to allow moisture vapour to escape from the base of the foot through the side of the boot. The upper is made of mesh and PU with a rubber toe rand ...

Berghaus Supalite GTX II (2015)

£150.00

FeaturesWith its 1.6-1.8mm leather upper carrying minimal stitching, the Supalite GTX II – formerly Brasher – is a very durable option with the benefit of a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. Inside there is a leather lining too. The ankle cuff is well-padded while underfoot you get EVA cushioning and a Vibram sole unit with deep, well-spaced lugs for grip. The toe ...

Asolo Triumph GV (2015)

£155.00

FeaturesThe Asolo Triumph GV’s suede leather upper is 1.6-1.8mm thick with very little stitching to break down, while a Gore-Tex lining ensures it is waterproof. What is most noticeable though is the very stiff toe box and heel cup, which combine well with the stiff sole unit. You get a heel breast on the sole and some good deep lugs, ...

Mammut Comfort High GTX Surround (2015)

£170.00

FeaturesGore-Tex Surround is the latest waterproof boot technology, using spacers installed between the footbed and sole unit to allow airflow through the footbed to the outside world. The upper of the Mammut Comfort High GTX Surround has lots of mesh to facilitate that airflow. The toe box gets some stiffening too and the heel cup is particularly stiff. The Gripex ...

Jöttnar Hymir (2015)

£230.00

FeaturesThere are lots of ways to save weight, and the Jöttnar Hymir strips away features to achieve its 346g (L). So it is a smock design with a short front zip, and it’s relatively free of seams too. There is only one pocket, but it does take a map. The hood gets a wired peak as well as face drawcords ...

Montane Minimus (2015)

£160.00

FeaturesAt just 265g (L) the Montane Minimus is exceptionally light, and the features are minimalist to reach that goal. The main weight saving comes from the Pertex Shield + fabric, which is very thin and feels quite delicate. Also the three pockets have mesh linings, to save weight. But at least you get all those pockets, and the hood has ...

Vaude Casson (2015)

£150.00

FeaturesThe Vaude Casson’s 2.5-layer Ceplex Advanced fabric gains Bluesign approval for its environmental benefits, but condensation control is not quite as good as 3-layer fabrics. There are two main pockets, pit zips and a hood with a wired peak. It has a decent weight of 310g too. The main drawback is the two pockets: they’re mesh-lined so they may allow ...

Vaude Crestone (2015)

£170.00

FeaturesThe Ceplex Advanced fabric used in the Vaude Crestone is Bluesign-approved, meaning it meets stringent environmental standards. It is a 2.5-layer fabric, so it’s not quite as good as 3-layer materials for condensation management. But it is light at 313g (size L) and you still get two main pockets, plus a third chest pocket, a hood with a wired peak, ...

Montane Featherlite (2015)

£230.00

FeaturesThe Montane Featherlite uses a lightweight eVent fabric called DV Storm with a 3-layer construction but a slightly different outer face fabric than the Rab Muztag, leading to a slightly lighter jacket at only 296g (size L). The fabric is 20 per cent more breathable than standard eVent and you get two good chest pockets with a wired peak on ...

Arc’teryx Beta SL (2015)

£230.00

FeaturesThe Gore-Tex Paclite fabric used in the Arc’teryx Beta SL is designed to be lightweight and packable, but it doesn’t control condensation as well as 3-layer fabrics. You also get two good-sized pockets that are well-positioned and don’t have mesh linings, so they should keep water out. The hood has a stiffened peak, however it isn’t as well-stiffened as others. ...

But you also get a Sympatex waterproof lining, a rubber rand and lots of stiffness in the upper and sole unit for rockier ground. The Vibram sole has deep, widely spaced ...

Berghaus Hillmaster II GTX (2015)

FeaturesBerghaus and Brasher have merged, so this is the classic Brasher Hillmaster under the new Berghaus logo. It has a Pittards leather upper that has virtually no stitching, particularly at the flex point to lengthen durability. There is a full rubber rand too, again for durability. The outsole is well-stiffened and there are deep, well-placed lugs for grip in the ...

Underfoot there is an aggressive Vibram sole unit with superb stiffness and a good set ...

First test: Rab Flashpoint (2015)

The lighter your gear, the less you’ll be weighed down – and the more enjoyable heading to the hills will be. But we also like to be comfy when the weather turns ugly, and minimal weight at any cost is something few hillwalkers will tolerate. So the 182g weight of Rab’s Flashpoint jacket is certainly impressive, but it’s important that ...
