Salomon Comet 3D GTX (2014)

£140.00

The Salomon Comet 3D GTX is a very lightweight boot at just 1356g (pair, size 11), and with the lower weight comes a change in performance when compared to heavier boots. The upper is made from synthetic materials with lots of stitching, so potentially this may not be as durable as a boot with one piece of leather on the ...

Salomon X Ultra GTX (2014)

£115.00

The Salomon X Ultra GTX is an exceptionally light shoe at just 956g (pair, size 11), making it instantly appealing to anyone wishing to save weight or move fast outdoors. The upper is synthetic with an open mesh and a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. The upper is protected by synthetic overlays and a large rubber toe bumper, but it’s still not ...

Salomon Synapse Flow 30AW (2014)

£100.00

Clamshell-opening rucksacks are popping up more and more these days, and you’ll either love or hate them. The Salomon Synapse Flow 30AW features an all-round zip allowing you to open as much or as little of the sack as you like. This allows you to access items in the very foot of your rucksack. But if the zip breaks or ...

Salomon Conquest GTX (2013)

£130.00

The Salomon Conquest GTX provides a hugging fit straight from the box, which is very appealing. The sole also provides a more stable platform on every step than other boots, which again gives this model an advantage. There’s a rubber toe bumper to protect the upper, but the toe box isn’t particularly well stiffened so it isn’t the best option ...

Salomon Sky 45 (2013)

£120.00

The Salomon Sky 45 tips the scales at 1189g, making it ideal for lightweight overnight trips as well as year-round hill and mountain travel. It’s a fairly clutter-free design and cannot boast some of the elaborate thinking of other packs, but what it does have is a good, clean, practical design. The back system is called Airvent Contact and it ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX (2013)

£140.00

The Salomon Comet 3D GTX is a very lightweight boot, tipping the scales at 1322g (pair, size 11), which is some 200g less than the Asolo Flame for example. But with that weight loss comes a change in character, as this instantly feels softer and less robust than its heavier competitors. The upper is mostly fabric with some leather overlays, ...

Salomon X Ultra GTX (2013)

£110.00

Looks are deceptive, as the Salomon X Ultra GTX is far lighter than it appears at first sight and it actually tips the scales at 912g (pair, size 11), which makes it one of the lightest mountain activity shoes we looked at. It has a synthetic upper with a Gore-Tex lining, which also makes it good value, as other shoes ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX (2012)

£140.00

As Salomon’s known for its lightweight footwear, it’s not surprising the Comet 3D GTX is the second lightest boot in our test – only pipped to the post by Zamberlan (by 4g) – and this is something that you notice as soon as you put them on. With a lot of cushioning underfoot they are immediately comfortable. The fit is ...

Salomon Minim 20

£65.00

This is a slimline pack for those who like to stay on the move. The long shape of it means that you could even run with it, should you need to. The long, narrow design keeps your arms free to swing around, and the pack is very lightweight. The breezy airvent back system really keeps the pack away from your ...

Salomon Exit 2 Aero

£65.00

An excellent walking shoe for dry weather, the Exit 2 Aero ticks most of the walking shoe boxes: reasonably stiff sole, good tread pattern, great heel hold. It’s let down by a lack of a waterproof lining (although Gore-Tex versions are available) which reduces its usability in the rain. The absence of a membrane coupled with the mesh design does ...

Salomon Mountain Crossing

£130.00

: A lightweight jacket that employs stretch panelling in key areas to aid movement. Here it is used across the top of the back and around the lower part of the hood. It really helps with stretching and reaching, and the hood stretch allows it to move with your head when the hood is pulled tight on blustery, showery days ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX

£135.00

Trail running shoe technology makes these boots incredibly comfortable straight from the box, with a trainer/multi-activity shoe feel to them. The soft upper and soft flexing sole underfoot gives them this added level of initial comfort. With this degree of flex, longevity may be an issue, although they maintained the same level of stiffness throughout the test. While not super-stiff, ...

Salomon Exit 2 Peak 2011

£75.00

The Salomon Exit 2 Peak is a relatively low-priced shoe compared to some options, but you still get reasonable performance. So the upper offers good protection and it should be durable, thanks to the use of minimal mesh and extensive areas of suede leather coupled with not too much stitching. There is an extra synthetic overlay around the toe too. ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX 2011

£135.00

The Salomon Comet 3D GTX weighs 1308g (pair, size 11); suede and fabric upper; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; instantly comfy due to soft upper; deep lug pattern for grip in mud; rubber toe reinforcement for durability. But soft upper and soft sole flex make it better for valleys, moors and easier hills paths than anything rocky; lack of heel breast means ...

Salomon Wayfarer 2011

£75.00

The Salomon Wayfarer trousers weigh 356g (size men’s L); Actilite four-way stretch fabric; two zipped hip pockets; zipped thigh pocket; zipped seat pocket; belt loops and Velcro adjustment; articulated knees. But not very warm so only suitable for summer; no ankle cuff adjustment; generally wider fit than other trousers.

Salomon Revo 35

£100.00

The mesh back system has a deep lateral curve that helps pull the load on to your back, but reduces venting a little – although not enough to be a major problem. It’s the only pack to use a side zip as a secondary opening for the main compartment, which isn’t as effective as it could be. You have to ...

Salomon XT Speed 2010

£100.00

The Salomon XT Speed multi-activity jacket weighs 268g (size L); ClimaPro Stretch fabric is very stretchy; small chest pocket; reflective material on one shoulder; ideal for running and events when hoods won’t be needed. But no hood, so of limited use; only one small pocket so limited cargo options and no handwarming opportunity.

The Salomon Quest Zip Off Pants weigh 404g; quick-drying 2-way stretch nylon; belt loops; two map-sized hip pockets; two map-width zipped thigh pockets; one zipped seat pocket. But no calf zip to ease removal of lower leg; no ankle cuff adjustment.

Salomon Tracks GTX

£100.00

A fairly light shoe that’s at its best on easier surfaces and good paths. It’s well-padded and very comfortable from the box, but the lacing doesn’t extend far down the foot and this, combined with a quite flexible midsole, made it difficult to get a really stable fit on steeper ground. A Gore-Tex liner kept water out well, and the ...

Salomon Azimuth

£120.00

An incredibly lightweight and comfortable jacket in a really sporty design. The Azimuth has a lovely contoured fit and a high, snug collar. The sizing is quite small. Elastic cuffs pull up easily, and the lightweight fabric and articulated elbows make it very easy to move around in. However it’s probably better suited to high intensity activities like cycling or ...

Salomon Merino II Zip Tech Tee 2009

£60.00

The Salomon Merino II Zip Tech Tee base layer weighs 159g (men’s S); closer fit; merino wool aids warmth, giving the best of both worlds in theory; good cuffs and close-fitting collar; very comfortable against skin; wicks well; light; quick-drying. But zip a bit short; shortish sleeves and hem; only 20% merino, so name could mislead; pricy. (01276) 404860; www.salomonsports.com

Salomon Exit Aero

£55.00

With a mainly mesh upper and no waterproof lining, this is the cheapest and one of the lightest shoes tested. It has limited midsole support, and leaks like a sieve, but it will work superbly in dry, hot climates or on well-surfaced trails; and will also do a great job for the fast and light brigade, who don’t mind getting ...

Salomon Quest 4D GTX

£130.00

A well-padded boot that feels great from the box. It’s quite a chunky boot, with a very high ankle cuff, but it’s not too heavy, and the lacing is excellent, making it really easy to get a stable fit. It struggled a little for grip in softer conditions, but it did well on rock. It has an excellent toe box ...

Salomon Quest 4D GTX 2009

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 ...
