Brasher Hill walker II GTX (2014)

Mammut Merlon GTX (2014)

Berghaus Expeditor AQ Suede (2014)

£100.00

FeaturesThe big feature here is the weight of just 1234g (pair, size 11). This has been achieved by using a mesh upper that covers a Berghaus AQ waterproof lining.

La Sportiva Trango Cube (2014)

£275.00

Reducing weight in many products is relatively easy, but when it comes to stiff mountaineering boots there are limits to what can be achieved. Or at least that used to be the case, before La Sportiva turned to modern technology for an answer. Mountaineering boots have to be stiff to allow them to take crampons, hold an edge when climbing ...

Lorpen Trekking & Expedition (2014)

£55.00

It’s not often you’d spend £55 on socks, but the price tag is fully justified here. You get two layers of Polartec Power Stretch fabric and a layer of PrimaLoft Footwear insulation, and the result is insane warmth. They’ve been tested above 8000m and stretch right up to your knees, so you’re getting a serious expedition sock. www.lorpen.co.uk

Boreal Strider (2014)

£150.00

A fairly traditional style of boot, the Boreal Strider offers more functionality at its price than many modern styles. It weighs in at 1608g (pair, size 11), which is light for its design, but less substantial boots are certainly lighter. What you get here is a virtually stitch-free upper so it should be pretty durable for many years to come ...

Waterproof socks are still an acquired taste, but they’ve come a long way from the ‘bin bags on feet’ jobs of a few years ago. SealSkinz has an extensive range that now incorporates merino wool, as well as a breathable waterproof membrane. They still crunch a bit when you walk, but the important thing is they keep your feet dry! ...
