Salomon Quest 4D GTX 2009

£130.00

Take a good look at the new Salomon Quest 4D GTX 3-season boot and you’ll recognise the outsole, which is a development of Salomon’s trail running outsole. It gives this boot an excellent ride that takes the wearer close to the ground with a good level of cushioning and stiffness to protect from the pounding. There is a good depth ...

Asolo Flame 2009

£130.00

The Asolo Flame has been around for a while, and it is a popular boot. It is reasonably lightweight, while its stylish fabric upper is certainly more interesting than a brown leather boot. There is a Gore-Tex lining to guarantee dry feet. The reasonably supportive upper appears well-made and able to take a fair bit of abuse. The toe box ...

The sack has a simple padded back system, hipbelt and shoulder straps that allow you to throw it on your back and forget about it. The back is stiff enough to ...

Trangia 25-8UL/HA

£75.00

Trangia meths stoves are extremely well-established and are unbelievably simple to set up and use. The meths burner sits inside a housing that acts as a windbreak and pan support. Once assembled the Trangia is exceptionally stable, and unlike most stoves actually works better in the wind. The Trangia comes with three pans and a kettle; in this version the ...

Berghaus Freeflow 30+6

£60.00

The design of this daysack is useful if you are away overnight as it uses a zip-out/Velcro inner section to split the pack into two. Access is gained via the pocket at the base, while the Velcro allows you to carry tent poles even when you are using the divider. The back system is well-vented and has soft, mesh-filled shoulder ...

Mountain Equipment Wet and Dry Kit Bag 70

£70.00

The use of 1000 denier rubberised tarpaulin in this kit bag should have ensured durability, but in our puncture tests the fabric was disappointing. However, the inclusion of an internal compartment for damp or smelly kit keeps your gear fresh. Oversized handles allow the bag to be carried as a rucksack, while a removable shoulder strap is also provided. The ...

Brasher Trailmaster GTX

£120.00

The 3-season Trailmaster builds on the success and performance of the Brasher Hillmaster, the UK’s most popular walking boot, by being a little more aggressive in its design. The upper is thick nubuck leather with minimal stitching to ensure it is water-resistant as well as durable. A Gore-Tex lining makes the boot waterproof. This upper is a little stiffer than ...

Scarpa ZG40

£120.00

These three-season leather boots from Scarpa, although slightly narrow, are well padded and lightweight and reasonably comfortable from the box. The laces pass through leather eyelets, which grip well and therefore help maintain the correct tension across the foot throughout your journey. The narrow fit might stop you tightening them quite as much as you’d like, but they still hold ...

Raichle Sierra GTX

£90.00

These fabric boots from Raichle are really comfortable from the off, with a medium-high ankle cuff and plenty of padding where it’s needed. Slightly wider than some, they allow you to really crank up the laces for a super-stable fit, with no heel-rubbing on the climbs and no toe-banging on the descents. Plenty of toe and heel protection too. They ...

The North Face Terra 35

£60.00

This daysack from The North Face fits well and you’ll enjoy carrying it. But it needed careful packing when very full, as it is easily pushed out of shape so that the actual back of the pack makes contact with you, rather than the foam padding. The Terra is a good size for weekend trips, and the choice of pockets, ...

Berghaus Freeflow III 35 + 8

£60.00

This daysack from Berghaus is very comfortable. You’ll hardly notice you’re carrying it – even when fully loaded – which says a lot about the Freeflow back system. However, it does carry the load away from the back, which can affect stability. The 35+8-litre capacity sounds huge, and it’s superbly featured, with everything you could wish for, including excellent pockets ...

Vaude Triset 35 + 8

£55.00

This daysack from Vaude has adjustable shoulder straps that help it to mould sweetly around your back, and the Aeroflex concave back system is cool and comfortable. You hardly know you’re carrying it, even when full, and the padded waist belt is excellent. This is a roomy pack, but the compression straps make it easy to tighten everything down when ...
