The OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany, is Europe's leading trade fair for outdoor gear.
All the brands and manufacturers are there, and so are our spies from Trail, Country Walking and Trail Running magazines.
Here we'll list some of the new gear that's got them interested as and when the reports come in, so keep popping back to check out the page! We'll also look to add more detail when we can.

Watch out Buck Rogers. This is the Kjolur, which comes in a shirt/jacket form (shacket) for men and this amazing smock for ladies. It uses Polartec Alpha fabric and won an Apex - the awards which Polartec gives for most innovative use of its materials among all the gear brands. Not sure if UK stockists will take it yet. But they should.
Trailproof range of Duffels, Drybags and Daysack
Powerknife from Brunton. Not a charger itself, but carries every attachment so you don't need to carry a whole bunch of connectors. £25.
New ProLite range. Super light and includes sweat-activated cooling. Whole outfit of base, fleece, soft shell and trousers weighs less than 1kg.
Exped's down mats were a big hit last year; here's the new synthetic version (Synmat, comically) with new sleeping-bag shape which makes it easier to go top-to-toe with your co-sleeper. Even more fun is the Schnozzlebag - the giant dry bag it packs into which, when rolled full of air, also becomes a pump.
New Ovik vintage-style backpacks, small one for £95 and big 'un for £115.
The High Coast range - pitched at coastal walkers in UK. Windproof, light fabric. Jacket, smock and trousers.
Duffel bags with Fjallraven's trademark G1000 fabric in heavy duty form. Carrying handles become rucksack straps. Three sizes, from £145 to £170.
Abisko Light jacket - has G1000 upper and stretchy elastane lower section.
New Kaipak rucksacks - 28, 38 and 58 litres, prices from £110 to £195.
Force Ten have revealed their first ever rucksacks (as distinct from >parent brand Vango). Called Alpine, the range includes 25, 35 and 45 litre versions for £80, £90 and £100 respectively. As befits Force Ten's stripped-down athletic ethos with tents, it starts with a completely basic, stripped-down pack - no external pockets or hooks, just the daisy-chain straps down the front. You then attach the straps in whatever configuration you like using the daisy chains - storage, compression, ice axe, pole etc. Only comes in orange - apparently so you can follow your expedition leader in a snowstorm because of how well it shows up, say the athletes who developed it. We really like the moulded back system too.
Touch lanterns from Gerber. Tap them for on/off. Price TBC.
Rival to Buff? H.A.D will be bolstering their UK presence in spring 15, and claim to be the first to use reflective material in their artwork.
Bacal II Mid - crossover lifestyle boot using Fjallraven's G1000 fabric on the upper. £150
Tudela Light GTX - more technical outdoor version, again using G1000. £145
Togiak GTX - tough new fabric boot. £170.
New Cool-Lite range adds Tencel to their merino blends. They say it makes fabric that's 40 per cent cooler and wicks three times faster than merino alone. This is the Sphere short sleeve, £55.
