Annapurna Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars I have bought this jacket for an up and coming trek to Everest base camp. I have tried it out in our milder climate on a colder day and the warmth was amazing. I have no doubt that I will not get cold in the Himalayas. I bought the large jacket. My chest is 42 inches and I have a 32 waist and the jacket fits perfectly. The adjustable and removable hood is perfect and if you need to wear a helmet the hood is comparable. The Velcro cuffs are snug. The Drilite fabric make it waterproof and windproof. Full review

Eclipse Hooded Zip Tee

rated 5 of 5 stars Best fleece ever made for winter climbing. I had to get this fleece after using my fried's on a on a climbing trip. The fleece has a snug athletic fit. The fabric transports sweat away from the body well. After using it on several trips I am impressed with it. The hood is thin, but adds the needed warmth to the neck when the chilling wind tortures you while belaying. The hood feels OK under a climbing helmet and follows the head nice.  Full review

Aeon Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars Lightweight packable rain jacket. Good for the occasional shower but not so good in prolonged rain because of limited breathability. The Mountain Equipment Aeon is a light rainjacket. It has an adjustable peaked hood, elevated side pockets, a small chest pocket, and underarm ventilation zips (pit zips). The hood is adjustable in the normal way with two pull cords in front and one at the back. The front cords come out below the collar so the wind can’t whip the ends into your face. The only downside… Full review

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
