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 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 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 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.

£70.00

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 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 Exo 2008

£130.00

This soft shell jacket uses very breathable SmartSkin fabric, which is also very abrasion-resistant; very stretchy fabric is ideal for climbers; useful chest pocket; wind-resistant hood rolls into collar and fits and moves reasonably well on the head; reinforced shoulders and elbows. But 716g is heavy; pocket access not ideal with a rucksack; others are more water- and wind-resistant.

Salomon Mega Trek 6

£115.00

A lightweight 3-season  boot weighing 1464g (pair, size 11). Leather upper with synthetic tongue; Gore-Tex waterproof lining. Supportive ankle cuff and solid toe box with rubber rand; aggressive outsole for grip in mud; good cushioning; good lateral stiffness. However,  longitudinal flex in the sole is quite soft, so not ideal for rocky ground; the lugs may hold mud a little ...

Salomon Power Full Zip

£60.00

This fleece mid layer weighs 364g (size L); Polartec Powerstretch fabric; more open-knit fabric under the arms for greater breathability; two map-sized hip pockets, one chest pocket; good close fit without restricting movement. But no zips on hip pockets; access is easily obscured while wearing a rucksack.

Salomon Speed

£100.00

This multi-activity jacket weighs 254g (women’s size M); very breathable and very waterproof ClimaPro fabric; one chest pocket; mesh arm pits and back of shoulder for ventilation; brushed polyester collar lining. But no hood making this a dedicated fast pace jacket; no map-sized pocket; front zip does not get external stormflap, so may leak more easily than some; some adventure ...

Salomon Elios XCR

£85.00

This multi-activity shoe features a Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining; lots of suede on the upper for durability; solid toe box provides good protection; very supportive heel; very aggressive sole lug pattern is ideal for mud. But you can feel stones through the sole, which lets this otherwise excellent shoe down.

Salomon XA Pro 3D XCR

£85.00

This trail-running shoe is a Gore-Tex-lined version of the well-established Salomon XA Pro, which means it is waterproof, unlike others which have mesh uppers instead. It is very lightweight too and it benefits from an easy-to-lock lacing system, which can be tucked away to keep stray knot loops from snagging on passing branches. The upper has lots of reinforcement at ...

Salomon Revo SCS GTX

£125.00

A 3-season boot that features a stitchless construction so durability should be very good; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; solid toe box; very aggressive Contagrip sole lug pattern; good underfoot cushioning due to PU heel section; rubber toe bumper for extra durability; women’s  sizes up to 10.5. But very flexible sole lets down an otherwise promising mountain boot.

Salomon Mega Trek 6LTR GTX

£115.00

These three-season leather boots from Salomon are soft and well-padded and feel lovely on, but lack the support needed for really rugged walking. Also, as is often the case with Salomon, you’ll have go up a half-size to get a decent fit. Happy enough on soft or even surfaces, the flexible midsole of the Mega Trek is quickly defeated by ...

Salomon Extend Low XCR

£80.00

These multi-activity shoes from Salomon are quite roomy, both in volume and width, which combined with substantial padding, makes them very comfortable from the off. The shock-absorbing footbed enhances the comfort. They’re warm in action, though, probably due to the fairly sparse use of fabric in the upper. A medium-stiff midsole makes them easy to walk in, but takes the ...
