Victorinox Classic small pocket knife

05. February 2017 Reviews 0
More of a “good for everything” than an outdoor knife, this little fella always comes in handy when you need something sharp. In fact has been so useful that my Mora Clipper is still brand new after carrying it in my pack for a month through Alps. Is one of those things that you never ...

Petzl Elios climbing helmet

25. January 2017 Reviews 0
Four years of use and no damage. I really don’t feel the need to test it’s durability and thankfully so far I’ve dodged the bullet. Nevertheless it served me well and if I were to go back it will still be the one to choose from the many other on the market. Not a fan ...

Outdoor Research Stormtracker Gloves

16. January 2017 Reviews 0
What better time to talk about a pair of gloves if not in winter. They’re three years old and still counting, with plenty of life left in them. My first pair of branded gloves, purchased initially for winter use, but turned out not to be as warms as I have hoped. Nevertheless one of the ...

Cleaning and Care Products: Nikwax & Granger’s

02. January 2017 Reviews 0
As we’re already heading into mid winter most of us have already stored the summer shoes in favour of a more warmer boot. I never could understand how some people store their footwear dirty and expect maximum performance every year. Being slightly obsessed with cleanliness, what bothered me the most, was perhaps the idea of how ...

Buff Merino Wool Multi Functional Headwear

01. November 2016 Reviews 0
We all have a favourite piece of clothing that’s always in the pack whenever we go up the mountain. Surprisingly mine it’s a Buff. Ever since I bought it, immediately became one of the most important pieces in my layering system. There are several brands and materials on the market but I do have a ...

Sunland Microfiber Travel Towel

21. October 2016 Reviews 0
An absolute must for me whenever I leave for holiday is a towel. Hotels always provide them but unless they’re whiter than the milk and look fairly new, I prefer my own. But when staying in a hut you don’t have this luxury. I used to carry a classic cotton towel back in the days until ...

Bridgedale Merino Light Hiker

08. October 2016 Reviews 0
For the past years I have been trying to find the perfect sock for 3 season use. There were so many different brands and materials tested that I lost track. Not perfect yet, but good enough and the best so far. The saving hand comes from Bridgedale, a Northern Ireland based company, today a world ...

Craghoppers Kiwi Pro Stretch Trousers

04. October 2016 Reviews 0
Here we have another British brand that even though is not among the premium ones still managed to impress. Being on the market for over half of century they managed to learn a thing or two about outdoor gear. But what pleased me the most is their customer service. Now I can’t speak for other of ...

Rab Icefall Gauntlet 2014 model

03. October 2016 Reviews 0
With the summer season gone now, we’re all eager for the cold weather to settle in. While currently trying to figure out my plans for this winter and sort out some gear I came across a new pair of gloves. Was trying to remember why I bought them in the first place when I realised the ...

Rab Aeon Long Sleeve Tee

27. September 2016 Reviews 0
We all like to shop local and Rab is one of those British brands that has been on the market long enough to build a good reputation. Is not my favorite though as I find their sleeves cut to be too large and long for my taste. At least all the jackets I’ve tried had ...
