    *Competition Time - Details at the end* A good pair of walking trousers can go a long way (ha, see what I did there? Honestly, I should get paid for this comedy gold…), but it’s tough to find the right trousers and it’s through trial and often expensive error that we find our preferred fit, style and design. The one common ground is that we want comfort and flexibility, with anything else being a benefit. Keela have taken their extensive knowledge of outdoor products and developed the Peru...

    We’ve seen numerous attempts at magical solutions to blistered and damaged feet after prolonged walking. Some are fairly simple and follow the school of thought of taping them up like crazy before you set off, others are more holistic and involve soaking your feet in all manner of weird fluids. Some work some of the time, some work none of the time. Ultimately, you’re not going to know until you’re halfway through the walk / march / etc, and you’re crying like an eight year old child that’s...

    It's a belt, but without a roller which means it's a struggle to get the right tightness without having to muck around

    Another top notch bit of kit from Armadillo Merino that keeps your braincells warm, stays fresh and most importantly, goes the distance.

    A perfect storm of comfort and protection makes a great all-round base layer

    When Spring kicked off this year I decided I needed a jacket that was far more flexible than the hard shell/fleece combo I’d been rocking through the frostiness of winter. It’s an old school The North Face mountaineering jacket and while perfect for the nasty stuff, it’s ‘boil in the bag’ overkill for anything else. I was also mindful that I’d soon be starting the eight month training to join Brecon’s Mountain Rescue Team and needed to add a decent soft shell to my outdoor wardrobe....

    My day job is a mixture of time spent behind a desk and outside exposed to the variable UK weather which means that I need clothing that copes well with both. For a number of years, I’ve worn 5.11 Tactical trousers and have been pretty impressed by their durability, comfort and ability to still look relatively smart in all situations. Earlier this year, I was approached by First Tactical who are owned by the founder of 5.11 Tactical and produce a very similar range of products. This...
  8. Quantock Clothing Jeans and T-Shirt

    Those of you with slightly longer memories will recall that Ravers had the pleasure of reviewing some top class items from Quantock Clothing. They’ve spotted a gap in the market for quality UK manufactured products and have moved to exploit it with a range of clothes that gained the accolade of ‘squaddy friendly’. Ravers was looking at their polo shirt/zip neck jumper combo whilst I had the James Dean classic of straight cut jeans and white t-shirt. I’ve had them for about six weeks now...

    This one is slightly different from my usual outdoorsy / military kit reviews, but stick with it. This week I've been lucky enough to review some bang tidy menswear from Quantock Clothing. [URL="http://www.quantockclothing.com"]Quantock® - Quintessential smart casual menswear, Made in England[/URL] Who dey and why do we care? The blurb on their website has a nice dit about where the idea spouted from and what they're all about. The general gist of it is that they saw a gap in the market for some good quality English made clothing and decide to jump right in. It's...

    I was donated this jacket to review by our very own @Trekitt from hooligan central. I have used it quite a bit and it is certainly windproof, though as for the real test, rain, well I've not got a scobby-do as we have our own micro-climate here, so bugger all rain whilst on my training tabs. I will update further once I'm on the Way, so wait out! A bit about it: A classic lightweight design that harnesses the superb breathability, weatherproofing and stretch of Polartec Neoshell. This...
