Wynnster Vacuum Mug

£7.00

A small, lightweight flask with a handle that allows it to be used as a mug to slurp your soup from. A screw-top lid and wide mouth permit easy cleaning and access to contents. But very poor insulation allowed the contents to cool rapidly, and you get less capacity compared to most others.   Capacity: 500mlMaterials: stainless steel, plastic screw ...

Trekmates Stainless Steel Vacuum Flask

£8.00

The stylish, coloured finish adds extra grip when handling this flask, while the simple screw-top design is easy to use and will not easily clog. The cup also gets a good plastic lining that extends around the lip to prevent burns. But others provided better insulation for the drinks, and there are no instructions to advise on cleaning or preheating. ...

Nalgene Lexan bottle and Insulated Winter Bottle Carrier

£17.00

A classic drinks bottle that is incredibly tough while giving a clear view of contents. The bottle has a wide mouth for easy drinking and filling. The insulated holder allows the bottle to be slipped onto a rucksack belt. But the contents of the bottle cooled far quicker than even the lightest of conventional flasks. And you don’t get a ...

Multimat Discovery (2014)

£20.00

If you’re really into saving weight and money, and can handle the sneers from technology-obsessed walking buddies, you really can’t beat a classic closed-cell foam mat. No need to worry about spare pumps, self-inflating devices or repair kits; you simply unroll it, chuck it on the ground and go to sleep. The Multimat Discovery is made from high-quality polyolefin foam ...

Trekmates Peak Walker

£25.00

These walking poles from Trekmates have grips with fronts that seem a bit short for comfort, and the rubber material feels unpleasantly clammy after a few miles. The straps are easy to adjust, but basic, and the edges and slider might result in a couple of sore spots. They’re heavy, too, but easy to adjust and boast a can’t-argue price. ...

Craghoppers Travel Compact Pole 2010

£30.00

At just 344g for a pair the Craghoppers Travel Compact Pole is very lightweight. Its walking stick-style handle may be preferred by some people but the handle can also be used in a conventional trekking pole way as it has a vertical cork grip too. There is also a webbing wrist loop on the handle. The pole has three sections ...

Fizan Compact Ultra Lite 2010

£50.00

The Fizan Compact Ultra Lite is the lightest pole in our test, and the lightest three-section pole in the world according to the manufacturers. It is pretty short when packed too so it will easily fit on the side of the rucksack. It does not have plastic ferrules (the short plastic sleeves) at the end of the pole sections, which ...

Brasher Anti-Shock Rubber

£60.00

These walking poles from Brasher have a wedge system on the straps which is fiddly to adjust, but they feel comfy once you set the correct length. The rubber handle is slightly lumpy and the various grooves chafe after a few miles. The locking mechanism is not very positive to adjust, but stays secure, and the optional anti-shock is useful. ...

MSR Sweetwater

£70.00

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 ...

Hope Vision Adventure

£175.00

Use this for walking in woods, across unpathed moors or for Alpine starts and you’ll love its huge lighting power. It makes walking at night almost as easy as walking in full daylight. You get three power settings too, so you can save battery power and set it on flash if in need of rescue. The headtorch is very robust ...

Reware Powerpocket 12 watt Folding Solar Panel

£220.00

When opened out this unit has eight solar panels spread across its 67x44cm design, yet it packs really small concertina-wise. At 360g it is a reasonable weight too when you consider the 12W output. The panels are flexible, unlike the lowest-priced options, while the folding design means the solar panels are protected from being scratched. A bunch of cables allow ...

Canon PowerShot G9 2008

£299.00

This handsome little compact offers all the creative controls you’d hope to find on a digital SLR (D-SLR), but in a neat, durable body. Weighing in at 320g, it’s by no means the lightest compact around, but it has a reassuringly solid finish that will doubtless appeal to hill-walkers. It sports a 6x optical zoom lens (ranging from 35-210mm), giving ...
