Berghaus Voltage/Electra (2014)

£200.00

The Berghaus Voltage for men and Electra for women feels nice and robust compared to other lightweight jackets and that makes it instantly appealing for hillwalking as it means it should be better able to trap air around the body than softer and more flexible materials. The fabric is Gore-Active Shell, a well proven development from the house of Gore ...

Lowe Alpine Meron (2014)

£130.00

A weight of 359g with a price tag of £130 and some good hill walking features makes the Lowe Alpine Meron very appealing. It is built from Lowe Alpine’s Triplepoint fabric in a 2.5-layer construction. This keeps weight down but does not handle condensation as well as 3-layer fabrics. The front zip is a good water-resistant design with a stiff ...

Salomon Minim (2014)

£180.00

The Salomon Minim lives up to its name by tipping the scales at just 292g (size men’s large). It is made from a very thin Climapro fabric that is waterproof and breathable but does not boast the performance of higher-priced jackets, and that is why it has a lower price tag than some options. The main front zip is exposed ...

Mountain Hardwear Stretch Plasmic (2014)

£170.00

Made from a stretch fabric to reduce any restriction in movement while allowing a closer fit, the Mountain Hardwear Stretch Plasmic uses a 2.5-layer Dry.Q Evap fabric that offers high performance; but, like any 2.5-layer fabric, condensation control is even better in 3-layer fabrics. However, there are pit zips provided for additional control of body temperature. The front zip get ...

Mammut Ridge High GTX (2014)

£160.00

The Ridge High GTX is described by Mammut as a boot for via ferrata and backpacking. At 1476g (pair, size 11) it is certainly light, which is useful on via ferrata routes and when scrambling. The upper is softer than many boots in its price range and the foot also feels closer to the ground, which overall gives this a ...

Patagonia Cragmaster (2014)

£90.00

The Patagonia Cragmaster is designed for approaching crags, bouldering and moderate climbs. To that end it weighs in at a respectable 954g (pair, size 11), so it feels quite nimble on the foot. The upper is made of leather with two nice large rubber rands for durability. But there is no waterproof lining, and water would easily enter this shoe ...

Quechua Bionnassay 600 (2014)

£150.00

The Quechua Bionnassay 600 is made from NovaDry, a 3-layer laminate with a membrane that offers good breathability figures (that said, it only boasts a 5 metre hydrostatic head, while higher-priced jackets offer around 20 metre hydrostatic heads, so like any lower-priced jacket it may not compare as well in the long term as higher priced options). The jacket is ...

Mammut Kala Patar Tech (2014)

£110.00

Not everyone likes pockets, and if you have a hands-on approach to your outdoor activities, such as when scrambling and mountaineering or just due to using trekking poles a lot, then do you really need them? If the answer is no, then the Mammut Kala Patar Tech may be for you. It’s made from a combination of two fabrics: one ...

Marmot Thermo Hoody (2014)

£100.00

The divisions between next to skin base layers, insulating mid-layers and waterproof outer layers are becoming ever more blurred as brands develop products to suit every style of outdoor activity and the specific needs of different types of users. The Marmot Thermo Hoody is a thin mid layer, but it could also be considered as a thick base layer. For ...

Sprayway Scorch Hoodie (2014)

£75.00

The Sprayway Scorch Hoodie is made from Exo/therm Stretch. This provides a medium level of wind resistant, similar to Polartec 200 Micro, but it has a closer knit on the outside to give it more abrasion resistance, while on the inside it has a more brushed appearance. The result is that it does not feel quite as warm as Polartec ...

Berghaus Pravatile Hooded Jacket (2014)

£75.00

There are a lot of hooded fleece jackets available but not that many under £100, so at £75 the Berghaus Pravatile Hooded Jacket does have some appeal. It is made from an attractive stretch fleece that offers a good level of insulation for general hillwalking. It is not very wind-resistant, which makes it ideal for wearing under a waterproof because ...

Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man Grid Jacket (2014)

£120.00

Made from Polartec’s ‘Monkey Fur’, this jacket looks wonderfully comfortable, and as soon as you put it on it really does live up to that image. This fleece is wonderful at trapping air, so this feels very warm in still air or under a wind- or waterproof jacket. The fabric does allow a lot of air to easily pass through ...

Adidas Terrex Advanced (2013)

£450.00

The Adidas Terrex Advanced is made from Gore-Tex Pro, the latest version of Gore-Tex fabric, which is their most breathable to date. The design is fairly standard with two chest pockets and a hood, which makes this price tag appear pretty high compared with the price of other jackets made from the same material and with the same or more ...

Bergans of Norway Glittertind (2013)

£300.00

The Bergans of Norway Glittertind is made from Dermizax, a 3-layer fabric with a membrane to keep water out while allowing sweat to travel out through the fabric to prevent condensation build-up. The lab results for the fabric are good and it certainly feels as good as other top-end fabrics. The design of this jacket appears quite good on first ...

The North Face All Terrain Jacket (2013)

£180.00

The TNF All Terrain is made from Gore-Tex, so in terms of proven waterproofness and breathability it is a great jacket. However it does only get two external pockets, so when hillwalking it offers less opportunity than other jackets in its price range to stash a map, guidebook, GPS receiver or compass for on-the-move access to these items – and ...

Snugpak GeoThermal Gloves (2014)

£35.00

With the Snugpak GeoThermal Gloves a lack of dexterity is the drawback. They’re extremely robust and feel like they’ll last longer than many gloves of similar price. However, they’re so stiff that I found it extremely difficult to actually manipulate anything. This is due to these gloves having a very durable PVC palm that extends over the ends of the ...

Mammut Atlas GTX (2013)

£110.00

The Mammut Atlas GTX is a very comfortable boot straight from the box, partly due to its very low weight of just 1058g (pair, size 11). Also, the upper is made from mesh and is very flexible, so it’s able to mould around the foot more easily than a leather upper. Under the foot, a large wedge of cushioning gives ...

Extremities Storm Glove (2013)

£40.00

The low price tag of these gloves is instantly appealing, but with that lower price does come a lower level of performance. The glove does have a Gore-Tex waterproof lining though, so it is no slouch in terms of waterproofness and breathability. The outer of the glove is polyester, rather than a tough nylon and leather combination that would offer ...

For the price tag of just £25 these gloves are quite well featured. They get a polyester shell with an Isotex waterproof lining and Thinsulate ThermoGuard insulation. They feel quite warm and certainly warmer than many gloves in their price range. The lining is quite loose though so when my hand was finding its way it side often a finger ...

This glove is smart phone enabled thanks to the inclusion of a OnTip technology that allows the glove to operate touch screen devices without the need to remove the glove and gain skin contact or use a hand held stylus. I actually found I could use the fingers of the glove without the OnTip to operate my phone but it ...

The low price of the Craghoppers Motion Gloves makes them instantly appealing and certainly if your budget is limited to £25 then they will at least keep you warm and dry.
