Ibex Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent lightweight stretchable soft shell pant suitable for hiking, backpacking, snowsports, and mountaineering. Water resistant and wind blocking, they are comfortable over a wide range of temperatures. I received a pair of the Mountain Equipment Ibex Pants in January and have had the pleasure of putting them through a thorough testing in a variety of conditions. A pair of 34" waist, regular length pair fit my 5'9", 165lb frame very well. The fit is described as Alpine with a regular ankle. Full review

Glacier 500

rated 3.5 of 5 stars One of Mountain Equipment's all rounder sleeping bags designed to tackle a wide range of conditions. It does what is says on the tin, keeps you warm when it is cold, however it does have a few drawbacks that would make me consider going for something else. Lets start with the basics.  With an extreme temperature rating of -21 degrees Celsius/ -6 degrees F, Comfort rating of 2 degrees Celsius/ 36 degrees F and a "Good nights sleep rating of -8 degrees Celsius/ 18 degrees F. This bag is going to… Full review

Lhotse Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A fully waterproof, Goretex Pro shell with a great fit that will suit most leaner body types.

I have had this jacket for a number of years now and it is by far the best waterproof I have owned. Here is my review which will hopefully help anyone in the market for a new waterproof have some food for thought :) Lets start with how waterproof it is...Very (not failed… Full review

Eclipse Inferno Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Light, warm, highly breathable, good fit—a good piece of gear! This jacket is, for me, a revolution in fleece technology. The small fleece panels makes the jacket breathe extremely well, and keeps you warm at the same time. The fit is a little long, and the high collar fits tight, so that no warmth is lost. The jacket has a weird feature though; the front full zip is not centered, but slightly to the right side of the torso. That means that it looks nice and eccentric when closed, but a little… Full review

Mountain Equipment Crux LS Crew

rated 5 of 5 stars The Mountain Equipment Crux LS Crew tee is an excellent synthetic (polyester) baselayer suitable for year round use. It features Polygiene anti-microbial technology which works reasonably well to limit odour. The main selling point for me is the excellent construction and durability which has impressed me over the past two years. From Mountain Equipment:  A close fitting tee that efficiently wicks moisture away from the skin and dries quickly on the move. Built in Polygiene anti-microbial technology… Full review
