Teko Light Hiking

£12.00

Cool, incredibly soft and held their position perfectly when pulling boots on and off. Kept feet at an even temperature, drier than most and didn’t smell at all. Tough enough.Contact: 08000 323505, www.anatom.co.uk

Vango Non Stick Cook Kit One Person 2009

£13.00

If you cook real food rather than heat up water to hydrate a packet meal then the Vango Non Stick Cook Kit One Person pan set is ideal. You get two pots, 0.7 and 0.9 litres, and two lids, plus a frying pan and plastic cup. The steel pans have non-stick surfaces too. There is no pan grip, but the ...

Tatonka Hot and Cold

£13.00

This flask offers superb performance, relatively light weight and a great price for what you get. The screw top has a slot down the side to allow easy pouring, while the lid can be used as a cup and has a plastic lining to prevent sore lips. You get instructions on the box too. This is a great flask that ...

Source Widepac 2 Litre

£17.00

Note the price, then note the feature of a rolltop end opening, which makes filling and cleaning this hydration system super-easy. Furthermore you get an autoseal link between the feeder pipe and bladder, and the bite valve has a cap to prevent accidental squeezing. This all means that there were no leaks in our test. Better still, the water taste ...

Deuter Widepac MEC 2 litre

£17.00

This hydration system is made by Source and so it is identical to the Source Widepac 2 Litre in many ways, but the valve-to-bladder attachment is less sophisticated. Under 20kg of weight, there was no leak either, while the bag-within-bag technology should mean this is durable. The bite valve seals itself to prevent drips, though the hood is required to ...

Source Widepac 2010

£20.00

Source makes similar bladders for at least two other outdoor companies (Deuter and Kathmandu) but keeps the best design features for itself. The Widepac offers an upgraded bite valve that twists easily to allow or prevent the flow of water. It has a brilliant sliding closure that is exceptionally easy to use and very secure. You can remove the hose ...

Lowe Alpine Lightweight DryFlo Bra

£20.00

The most simple designs are often the best. The closed seam darts of this racer back sports bra, which cup the breasts, and a wide stretchy chest strap, provide comfortable shaped support for walking and more. The front is opaque and the design is definitely crop-top rather than bra, allowing it to be worn as a top, plus it has ...

Vango Stainless Steel Cook Kit 2 Person 2009

£23.00

Designed for two who like to cook proper food, the Vango Stainless Steel Cook Kit 2 Person cook set has one frying pan, two pots (0.9 and 1.4 litres with lids) and two plastic cups. The pans are made from stainless steel but the bases are copper to improve heat conduction and use less fuel. They pack together neatly inside ...

Source Widepak (2013)

£25.00

As the name suggests, the Source Widepak bladder has a wide top opening that makes filling, cleaning and drying the reservoir as simple as it needs to be. This opening is closed with a chunky ‘fold and slide’ lock that is secure, reliable and convenient, even when wearing gloves. The hose attachment is of the quick-release valve type, which enables ...

Stanley Adventure Vacuum Bottle 2014

£28.00

Stanley has been at the forefront of flask development since 1913, and the brand continues its iconic green hammertone design. The Adventure Vacuum Bottle’s screw-on cup lid is narrower and deeper than most, and easier to drink from. A screw-top seal lacks the press-button design of some bottles. But most impressive is the performance, with a 4 deg C drop ...

Pure Lime Support Bra

£29.00

This is the comfiest sports bra I’ve used. It uses super-soft fabric to create a seamless, moulded-cup sports bra that provides the right amount of support for walking and more. The mesh panel between the breasts provides ventilation without being transparent, and the Tactel Aquator fabric wicks sweat efficiently and dries quickly. The fully adjustable straps are wider over the ...

Alpkit Airo (2013)

£40.00

Alpkit is a cult superstar in the outdoor gear world, dealing direct via its website – and only from there – to minimise overheads and keep prices low. Its kit is always well put together, robust and usually highly affordable in comparison to the competition. The Airo is no exception, offering outstanding value for money. There are other decent mats ...

LEKI TRAIL WALKING POLE

£40.00

Review: Even the most basic design of pole will take its share of the load and improve walking performance. If it’s well-made, strong, reasonably light, ultra-reliable and available for a very reasonable £40 per pair like the Leki Trail, then it’s going to take some beating. The grip is slim, soft and comfy in the hand, and the straps, whilst ...

Anquet Coast to Coast (Wainwright) 2010

£45.00

Anquet has always stolen a march with its 3D manipulation. So if you prefer to plan your adventures with some realism rather than through the abstract world of 2D then this is the package for you. It might take a bit of time to get to grips with but once you get your head round the interface it proves to ...

Black Diamond Icon

£50.00

This is a beautifully crafted and wonderfully useful headtorch. The manufacturer claims it has an 80m beam, but what I liked was the variable power settings that add up to six lighting options plus flash. There is a setting here for almost every occasion. With a maximum burn time of 164 hours on a set of AA batteries, you also ...

£60.00

Made from tough tarpaulin, this kit bag benefits from extended handles so it can be worn as a backpack as well as dedicated rucksack-style shoulder straps. The main zips are lockable and you get compression straps. The clear ID label panel is a worthwhile feature too. For the price this is a winner.   Capacity: 70 litresWeight: 1270gMaterial puncture resistance: ...

Mountain King Supertrekker Compact (2012)

£60.00

The Mountain King Supertrekker Compacts are very well-established and well-proven trekking poles. They benefit from a friction-enhancing coating on the poles, which makes them much easier to grip, especially in the wet, when you have to rotate the pole sections to lock and unlock the internal expansion mechanism. They also have a unique internal mechanism that allows the user to ...

Black Diamond Storm (2012)

£60.00

The Black Diamond Storm appears to provide everything its name suggests, as it offers a range of features to help you walk through a night-time storm safely. Firstly it is surprisingly small and compact at just 110g, so you’ll happily stash it in your rucksack ready for action. It punches out 100 lumens, which is a notch more than similar ...

Mountain King Super Trekker (2012)

£60.00

A lightweight pair of poles with great padding. Although strong, there is a bit of flex in the shaft when fully extended. The anti-shock system is one of the most pleasant to use, with little noise when compressed and a firm, smooth action when weight is applied. The twist-lock mechanism works well enough without slipping, even in wet conditions. The ...

Black Diamond Trail Compact 2010

£65.00

For many years Black Diamond poles have featured a FlipLock camming system to allow the poles to be adjusted in length and firmly locked in place. This system has been well-proven and does not appear to suffer from the common failings of the internal expanding cam design used by other brands. This single feature of the Black Diamond Trail Compact ...

Brasher Supalite Ti

£65.00

These Supalite Ti trekking poles from Brasher have a good pack-down size, are lightweight and very comfortable. Although there’s no plastic grip to help undo/tighten the bottom section, the basket is fixed so can double up for the job. There’s no anti-shock, and care is needed when dismantling for drying, as there are loose bits of plastic that can be ...

This water purifier comes with an extensive suite of parts, and it is these that nudged it into first place in our test. The details of the kit mean you get a pre-filter and float. But you also get an adapter that allows you to attach the outflow pipe to various water bottles. The pump itself works very effectively with ...
