Millet Beyond 1200 2011

£120.00

The Millet Beyond 1200 is the lightest bag on test, and it packs down fantastically small. Apart from the threads, elastic and zip, it’s all made out of fully recycled materials and so will appeal to anyone looking to reduce their environmental impact when buying a sleeping bag. In terms of fit, the bag is cut quite close for increased ...

Millet Bouthan/Sikkim 2010

£200.00

The Bouthan/Sikkim is a superb mountain boot from Millet. It is built around an almost one-piece leather upper, with just a small additional panel down the sides of the tongue. So this is incredibly durable, as there is so little stitching. There is also a Gore-Tex lining for waterproof protection and a full rubber rand to add further durability. Inside ...

Millet Radikal 32 2010

£125.00

The Millet Radikal 32 is an extremely good 1260g technical pack designed with alpine ascents and winter climbs in mind. Its ventilated back system keeps the pack close to your centre of gravity and it offers very well-thought-out carrying options that are easy to operate with gloves or cold fingers. But a lot of the features will be surplus to ...

The Millet Granit Zip Off Pants weigh 548g; fast-drying heavier nylon; two patch pockets on seat and two on thighs; two map-sized pockets on hip; elasticated waist with belt loops; long calf zip allows easy lower leg removal.

Millet Radikal Rock 2009

£240.00

Designed specifically for summer alpine technical mountaineering on mixed snow and rock, the Millet Radikal Rock 4-season boot boasts a radical design. The upper is made from various synthetic materials, which give it a unique style, as well as plenty of support and protection from its relatively low weight. The lacing system is equally radical as it has a BOA ...

Millet Gokyo Peak trousers are brilliant value for money; very stretchy Shoeller soft shell fabric pant; very light (349g, size 12); comfy brushed waist; 2 side mesh vented pockets; good wide-cut thigh.

Millet Aerial Max 2008

£190.00

The Millet Aerial Max is made from a stretch version of Gore-Tex Paclite that feels very hard-wearing, while allowing a closer fit without restricting movement. There is also heat-sealed reinforcement on the shoulders. The body is quite short, which is good for climbers for example. The fabric is rated as extremely waterproof and extremely breathable so you should stay dry. ...

Well-cut and snug, but the coarse windproof lining and itchy seams felt horrible next to the skin. Kept the wind out well and has pit zips for ventilation.

Millet Super Touring 2008

£160.00

Millet has produced a series of great soft shell jackets over recent years, and the Super Touring is its latest offering. It’s very lightweight and makes use of Polartec Power Shield to provide 98% wind resistance and very good water resistance, while maintaining a higher level of breathability than some other fabrics.

Millet Prolight 35

£60.00

The price of this 30-40 litre rucksack makes it particularly appealing, especially as you can buy more expensive sacks that are not so good! At 1370g it is a reasonable weight. I particularly like the lid with its single-buckle closure and its gusset panel that allows the lid to be raised for overloading the sack without allowing rain to enter. ...

Millet Hyperlite Quantum

£135.00

The Hyperlite is a very sleek little insulated jacket with a continental feel of individuality about it. There are some seriously light jackets featured in this review, and this is one of them (in fact only the Infinity Light weighs less). Both jackets use Pertex Quantum fabric and Primaloft fill, and both have drawcord hems. That said, the Hyperlite has ...

Millet Taka Pant

£75.00

The fabric used in these waterproof overtrousers has a far higher waterproof rating than others we looked at, so they should stay waterproof for longer. There is a mesh lining too, which aids condensation control and comfort. You get 75cm side zips, and these trousers fit easily – even over my size 11 boots. The zips have an external stormflap ...

Millet Wind Shell

£70.00

This windproof fleece from Millet is a perfect fit with excellent features, such as Lycra cuffs and a drawcord hem. The collar is snug, but the drawcord adjuster might not suit those with long hair. Not as soft against the skin as some. Pit-zips and venting pockets ensure it still works on milder days or when you’re moving fast. Not ...

Millet Expert

£160.00

This duvet jacket uses quality down insulation; supplied with stuffsack; fixed down hood; reinforced shoulders and forearms; hip pockets; adjustable cuffs; good price for the level of insulation. But 1057g is very heavy (though this is warmer than most); sewn-through rather than box wall construction; removable hood would be useful.

Millet Techno Stretch

£45.00

This is a lightweight fleece mid layer that is also low in price. It is a thin fleece which is slightly more wind-resistant than some and has excellent breathability. Put it on as part of a layering system and it performs well either under waterproofs, soft shells or other fleece layers. It is very stretchy too which has allowed it ...

Millets Eurohike Wilderness A

£25.00

Considering this daysack only retails at £25, you get pretty much all the features you would need for a day out on the hill, including a ventilated back system. The front pocket is a great size and will allow easy access to a map, while bellows side pockets allow you to compress both them and the rest of the pack ...

Millet Expedition 70

This kit bag is really built to take the abuse with tough, rubberised fabric, wide webbing and chunky, lockable zips. An unusual addition is an end entry into a lockable compartment that is ideal for wet or smelly kit. You get a pair of dedicated shoulder straps that can be removed as well as haul handles on the top, sides ...

Millet Touring Hoodie

£160.00

Soft shell is such a broad category that choosing just one really depends on your definition and expected use of the jacket. For me, a soft shell is a garment that is more wind- and water-resistant than a fleece and also more durable, which allows it to be worn on the hill whenever you can get by without your waterproof ...

Millet Project M Pant

£65.00

These men’s and women’s walking trousers use four-way stretch fabric which is very durable and ideal for mountain walking; stretch waist with belt; articulated knees; three zipped pockets. But this fabric is definitely not cool; these look like mountain walking trousers and they should stay on the hill where they work the best; very ‘outdoor’ belt; very close fit.
