Sprayway Cerberus (2015)

£75.00

FeaturesThe Sprayway Cerberus has instant hill appeal, thanks to a hood and two large pockets on the chest with easy access even when wearing a rucksack with a wide hipbelt. The front zip is full-length and gets a baffle on the inside to block draughts while the top of the zip is protected to prevent chin scrape. Thumb loops are ...

FeaturesWith the Columbia Fast Trek II Full Zip three pockets. You can fit OS maps in the hip pockets and a small guidebook in the chest pocket.

Mountain Equipment Scorpion (2015)

£135.00

FeaturesI would always choose a fleece with a hood, but if you don’t want one then the Mountain Equipment Scorpion is the best option around. It has two large main pockets that can be accessed while wearing a rucksack, plus a third smaller chest pocket for GPS receiver, guidebook or compass. There is also added abrasion resistance in key areas ...

Mammut Eiswand Tech (2015)

£175.00

FeaturesThis jacket from Mammut’s Eiger range is designed for alpinism and climbing, but it also works really well as a hillwalking and scrambling fleece thanks to its ‘alpinist’ features. So you get two large chest pockets, a hood and a close fit to allow active movement without riding up. There is no third chest pocket, though, which is a surprise ...

Regatta Breaktrail (2015)

£25.00

FeaturesThe Regatta Breaktrail’s biggest benefit here is the price of just £25, but at such a low cost it isn’t surprising to find that hillgoing features are limited. There’s a short front zip, only one pocket and no hood. But the zip does have an inside baffle to block wind and prevent chin scraping. The pocket is large enough for ...

Rab Shadow Hoodie (2015)

£140.00

FeaturesThe Rab Shadow Hoodie has almost everything you could dream of with its hood, two huge chest pockets and highly abrasion-resistant material. There is no external third smaller chest pocket, but you do get an inside chest pocket which is very large and could be used for compass, GPS receiver or phone. The drawback is all that extra weight if ...

Mountain Equipment Shroud (2015)

£80.00

FeaturesThe Mountain Equipment Shroud has been a favourite of mine thanks to its combination of a hood and two large chest pockets that can be easily accessed while wearing a pack with a wide hipbelt. It has thumb loops and a hem drawcord, and the front zip has a baffle inside to keep draughts out as well as a chin ...

With the right rucksack back system you really can carry everything you need for a night of camping, including the proverbial kitchen sink, and still remain comfortable throughout the day when backpacking. The Osprey Atmos range of rucksacks has been popular for many years, but now there’s a new Anti-Gravity (AG) back system available to supercharge their performance for 2015 ...

Páramo Bora Hoodie (2015)

£100.00

FeaturesOver-the-head smock designs such as the Páramo Bora Hoodie do have real advantages, as they allow a large chest pocket to remain easily accessible while wearing a rucksack. Here you also get a hood and a third small chest pocket. There’s also a lot you don’t get though, including adjustment on the hood, a long zip for ventilation and no ...

Craghoppers Pro Lite (2015)

£40.00

FeaturesThe Craghoppers Pro Lite is a low-priced fleece jacket with a hood and three pockets is a good option for many hillwalking situations. This one has no baffle behind the front zip, though, so it can be draughty and there’s no chinguard for the top of the zip. There are no adjustment cords at the cuffs, hem or around the ...

Montane Volt (2015)

£100.00

The Volt is a joy to wear. It’s called a ‘zoned’ jacket, with the zones being separate panels of material stitched together to make a jacket that moves naturally with you, while keeping the heat where you want it. It uses the warmest version of Polartec, Thermal Pro, which has a honeycomb design that creates air pockets within the jacket ...

The North Face Glacier 100 (2015)

£50.00

A small red triangle logo on your fleece will bump up the price, but as a quick visual guarantee, it is hard to beat. It’s the logo of Polartec, and when it comes to making a fleece warm, breathable and stretchy, Polartec is about the best option on the market. It’s at the heart of this excellent all-rounder fleece, making ...

Mammut Aconcagua (2015)

£130.00

If you’re a serious hillwalker and you plan on spending a lot of time in deep cold conditions, the Aconcagua (as you might expect from the name) is a perfect choice. There’s Polartec here again, but this time it’s the advanced Power Stretch version which prioritises stretchiness. So it’s incredibly athletic, adapting to your movements smoothly, although it’s not as ...

Regatta Breaktrail (2015)

£25.00

The Breaktrail is part of Regatta’s Point 214 range – named after the 214 Lake District fells listed by guidewriter Alfred Wainwright. This tells you that it’s firmly designed with British hillwalking in mind, rather than anything more extreme. It’s all one fabric (the dark panels under the arms look like they should be a light fabric for venting, but ...

Extremities Super Corbett (2015)

£55.00

FeaturesA good level of warmth was provided with the Extremities Super Corbett, and it also has a Gore-Tex waterproof lining to keep your hands dry. The palm is made from nylon rather than leather, so it may not be quite as durable as some options. There is a wrist webbing buckle, which not many gloves offer, plus a cuff drawcord; ...

First test: Scarpa Marmolada Trek (2015)

£200.00

Does the perfect boot exist? It’s hard to say; but I’ve always looked for one boot that I could wear no matter where I go on the hills. It’s a big ask, as it really depends what sort of hillwalking you mostly do and where you mostly go. But the Scarpa Marmolada Trek promises to be the perfect boot as ...

Rab Guide (2015)

FeaturesThe Rab Guide has a real workhorse design, thanks to the extensive thick leather areas to ensure durability. Inside there is a very thick pile fleece for warmth, while an eVent waterproof lining makes this suitable for wet days and when snow’s melting. The cuff has elastication, but no other adjustment. However, a nose wipe and a wrist leash complete ...

Berghaus Mountain AQ (2015)

£45.00

FeaturesThe Berghaus Mountain AQ’s palm is polyurethane, which isn’t quite as durable as nylon or leather – but there are no seams for better durability, and you get roll-tip fingers, again great for durability. Inside you get synthetic insulation, although not as much as others, and a waterproof AQ liner. Cuff adjustment, a nose wipe and a wrist leash complete ...

There’s a full rubber rand for external protection, internal linings of thermal insulation and a high-cut waterproof Gore-Tex sock. The dual-firmness ankle cuff is very supportive but needs care with lacing tension. It has deep lugs for firm snow or muddy ...

FeaturesThe insulation is a hydrophobic down that absorbs 30% less water than normal down and dries 60% faster. The down is 800+ fill power and is made of 95% down and just 5% feather, which all adds to the warmth of this jacket for the minimal weight.
