Outwell Steel Vacuum Flask

£12.00

This flask kept the contents very hot. The lid can be used as a cup and has a plastic liner to protect the lips from scalds. The stopper is the press-down variety, and the outside has a grippy, anodised finish. But the press-down pourer may not be to everyone’s liking as this type can clog up, so it’s not ideal ...

Vango Non Stick Cook Kit One Person 2009

You get two pots, 0.7 and 0.9 litres, and two lids, plus a frying pan and plastic cup. The steel pans have non-stick surfaces too. There is no pan grip, but the ...

Gelert Ascent

£15.00

These Gelert Ascent trekking poles have only two sections, which makes for a longer (more bulky) pack-down size. But this also means they’re less prone to slipping than some. With a comfortable handle and reasonable weight, this is a bargain pole for all but the very serious hillwalker. Two-section design makes them easier to adjust and tighten. Adequate performance and ...

Jack Wolfskin Thermo Bottle

£16.00

A rubberised coating provides a more secure grip than most others. Better still the insulating properties are good. You get a press-button closure plus a cup. But others offer better insulating performance for their weight and not everyone is a fan of button-operated pourers, as they tend to clog.   Capacity: 1000mlMaterials: stainless steel flask and cup, plastic stopper  Sizes ...

Hi-Gear ZM730 Anti Shock

£16.00

These trekking poles weigh 624g per pair; 64cm packed length; 130cm max length; easy to adjust hand loop; carbon fibre reinforced fibreglass. But anti-shock can be turned on and off too easily and this may happen when twisting the pole during zigzag ascents; plastic handle and hand loop not as comfortable as others.

Lifeventure TIV Vacuum Flask

£17.00

This flask comes in a metal case, while its black, grippy, anodised coating makes it almost too sexy to use! Inside there is a copper coating to improve insulation. Performance was okay and you get clear instructions. But the plastic lining of the cup does not extend as far as some around the lip to prevent burns. The screw-top pourer ...

Vango Anti-shock Walker

£17.00

Vango’s Anti-shock Walker is a bargain pole offering great value for money. The alloy design is quite heavy, though, and the nifty little compasses in the handles don’t always work. Even so, they’re nice poles, with all the essential features and at a reasonable price. Adequate performance on the hill.

Greenheat Base Camp Stove

£19.00

This stove weighs 570g; boil time 12 min to 14 min; simple to use; fuel doesn’t spill if knocked over; fuel is green gel made from sugar cane so more environmentally friendly than most; refills cost just £3.50; 10cm diameter pan supports. But best boil was only slightly more than a simmer; slow boil time.

Primus Stainless Steel Vacuum Flask

£20.00

A beautiful black, grippy, anodised flask with a good performance in the temperature test. The cup has a good plastic lining to prevent sore lips. The stopper has a press-down pourer and can also be easily unscrewed. You also get very good instructions and a spare stopper. But the price kills an otherwise good flask, while some may prefer simpler ...

Regatta Crusoe 2009

£25.00

The low price of the Regatta Crusoe is instantly appealing. And you get an awful lot of practical features for your cash. The Crusoe has a good three-point adjustment strap system, with Velcro and neoprene padding. The straps are wide at the forefoot, to provide extra protection. Underfoot there is a good, sturdy footbed that is stiff enough to take ...

Aztec Nevado 80

£30.00

Light on price and weight, this kit bag benefits from a removable padded shoulder strap and oversized handles that allow it to be worn as a backpack. Zipped end compartments plus an internal divider facilitate packing while the main zip can be locked with a padlock. But the material is not as durable as others, and the external pocket and ...

Hi-Tec Altitude Lite IV WP JR

The Hi-Tec Altitude Lite IV WP JR children’s boot is an excellent price for what you get. There is a conventional upper with reasonable stiffness in the sole and toe box for protection and support on irregular terrain. Underfoot there is a good cushioning plus a very grippy pattern of lugs for the mud. But the stiffness in the sole ...

Wynnster Stowaway 2008

£30.00

The Wynnster Stowaway multi-activity jacket is a low price; waterproof, breathable fabric; hood rolls into collar; map-sized chest pocket; front zip gets double stormflap. But 550g (S) is very heavy; higher price brings better fabric; hip pocket access is easily obscured by rucksack belts; hood drawcords left to flap; large, soft peak obscures vision.

Wynnster Montana

£30.00

This waterproof is primarily a ski jacket, so it is very warm. The insulation is built into a waterproof shell, though, so it will keep your child dry too. You even get a zip-out snow skirt for keeping the powder at bay. Hem drawcords and Velcro cuff adjustment keep draughts out, while a stormflap on the main zip keeps water ...

Hi-Tec V-Lite Sirocco

£30.00

This sandal makes use of a synthetic upper which is fast-drying, so this would be ideal for river crossings and generally getting damp around a campsite. It does not have a conventional strap system: instead it has a drawcorded and elasticated panel that pulls the top of the foot into the heel. This is a very comfortable design that is ...

Hi-Tec Altitude II

£30.00

These sandals from Hi-Tec are not as comfortable as some at first, but some tweaking soon ensures a good fit with plenty of support. The neoprene-lined straps feel very comfortable next to your skin, and the soft microfibre footbeds are great. Great to walk in, offering plenty of support and good traction. The footbeds hold your feet still, even when ...

The Keen Targhee is a low-cut children’s shoe with a very breathable upper, making this ideal for summer walks. The rubber toe bumper is ideal for extra protection and the heel cup offers good support. Better still the wide forefoot is ideal for broader feet. But as this is a low-cut shoe rather than a boot it more easily allows ...
