Gear Reviews

With over 15 years of outdoors experience, including 4 years of outdoor retail, I’ve had the opportunity to play with a huge array of kit.

I hope to provide informed, wholesome reviews on the equipment and clothing that I’ve come across and put through their paces on the rocks, in the mountains, on the snow and damn near always in the driving rain!

Some personal favourite bits of gear:

  • Mountain Equipment Astron Hooded Jacket (defunct)
  • Mountain Equipment Eclipse Hooded Zip Tee
  • Tatonka Barrel Bag XL
  • Jetboil Personal Cooking System (now Flash)
  • Mountain Equipment Dragonfly 2 (defunct)

There are some brands you’ll never get a review about from me due to personal opinion and experiences: The North Face, Berghaus, Quechua, Addidas and other powerhouse mass producing brands
