Helly Hansen Challenger 2 (2015)

£130.00

The Challenger is modelled on a running design, but walkers can benefit from its breathability and ease of movement too. Where the Regatta jacket prioritised weather protection, this  takes a lighter approach. The front is made from standard soft shell polyester, hardy enough to beat off wind and rain, while the back and underarms are made from lighter, stretchier material. ...

Patagonia All Free (2015)

£110.00

This jacket was originally designed for climbing, but walkers can get a fair bit out of it too. Freedom of movement is great, as you might expect given its roots, and it stretches beautifully. It’s very lightweight, and water just glides off it, even when subjected to a ruthless water-bottle dousing. The neck is high and snug with no danger ...

Musto Evolution (2015)

£119.00

Cocooned. It’s a comforting word, bringing to mind snugness, warmth and security. All the things you’d want from a product that is intended to protect you against the wind, the wet and wild weather in general. ‘Cocooned’ popped straight into my mind on donning this, one late winter’s day. The inner is traditionally soft and fleecy, and immediately warming, while ...

Paramo Bora Smock (2015)

£80.00

The Bora takes a different approach to soft shell. It is essentially a thickened-up, over-the-head windshirt, so it is exceedingly light (just 178g) and very packable. By itself, it is highly windproof (the peaked hood is especially good) and very breathable, thanks to two vertical venting zips up the abdomen. But the Bora has more to it than that. It ...

Craghoppers Pro-Lite (2015)

£50.00

It’s rare – very rare – that our reviews could start and finish with the cheapest item, but Craghoppers’ new Pro-Lite really does give you the whole story of a soft shell jacket in a nutshell. It’s lightweight, sharply-cut, very breathable and completely windproof. It works up a mountain, in a country park and on the high street, and it ...

Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock (2015)

£110.00

www.blackdiamondequipment.com DesignBlack Diamond poles have a very good reputation for durability married to function, and while you’re paying close to top dollar, the evidence is you’re investing wisely. A three-section telescopic design, the FlickLock Pro locking system developed by Black Diamond is an incredibly strong all-metal design, and the shaft – grippy and, again, all-metal – feels far and away ...

Helinox Passport TL130 (2015)

£130.00

www.helinox.eu DesignHelinox is a new cutting-edge brand specialising in lightweight gear. The 3-section Passport has a clever breakdown style, with a snap-lock button sealing the tension into a shock-cord design. A single internal twist-lock adjusts length. Although reliant on the cord, this makes them very light and the DAC aluminium tubing – found in tent poles – is designed to ...

Leki Albula Lite (2015)

£100.00

www.leki.com DesignTrekking poles are modified ski poles. As Leki makes ski poles, it’s a fair assumption that its walking poles will be pretty good, and the Albula certainly seems to fit the bill. It features double trigger locks, very light aluminium material (despite the word ‘titanium’ appearing on the shaft, see below) in three telescopic sections and a fantastic range ...

The Vario 4 is the next generation of a line of carbon poles that feature a unique, threaded screw-in design for the two lower sections with one power-lock quick-release trigger beneath the handle to tweak length. The drawback of this is a limited adjustment range (25cm), ...
