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 ...

Haglöfs Barrier III Hooded Jacket

26. September 2016 Reviews 0
A Nordic brand that has been on the market for over a century now. I have tested a few pairs of trousers in the past but never owned one of their products until now. It just happened to be the only one to match my requirements so I kind of had no choice but to ...

Simond Alpinism Jacket

21. September 2016 Reviews 0
Most certainly not the best known brand when it comes to outdoor gear. However Simond does comes on the market with a good range of products at affordable prices. If you expect top quality and functionality then you’re barking at the wrong tree. Simond Alpinism Jacket is designed to be a belay winter layer. I couldn’t certify this ...

Dufourspitze West Ridge (PD+/ UIAA II/III)

17. September 2016 Travel Journal 0
Getting ready We arrived in Zermatt after a 5 hours train ride from Jungfraujoch, hungry, tired and desperately in need of a hot shower. The perfect weather was a reminder of the missed opportunity to climb Jungfrau. Maybe next year. Now we had to focus on the next climb. We went to our hotels, and ...
