You may have noticed but it’s been rather chilly recently. Over the snowy period, we were completely stuck and couldn’t drive anywhere. During one of the snow days, when neither of us could get to work, we decided we had to get to our friends place to go sledging. It was a pretty darn chilly day but we wrapped up in some serious layers, packed our bags and headed off. I was wearing my new Teva boots and Vicky her…

I love this time of year. A cold, dry, wintry day is such a fantastic time to go for a walk, so a great pair of boots are a must. As you may have already read, Mike and I were heading to Ireland for a week – our stay would include a lot of walking – so I decided to invest in a brand new pair of boots, in the hopes that they would provide comfort (I would be wearing…

It’s been a couple of years since I reviewed the Columbia Ventrailia walking shoes back in 2016. Since then, these awesome shoes have literally taken me around the world. They’ve been to countries such as Spain, Scandinavia, Poland, Slovakia and Croatia to name but a few. They’ve also been worn on 25+ mile hiking days on the Cornish Coast path. They’ve gone through sand, mud and streams and have served me awesomely. Although my old faithful Columbia Ventrailia walking shoes…

After sorting through my winter clothes, I realised I didn’t own a decent hoodie so decided to check out what Columbia had to offer. As you may have read previously, I love Columbria…everything I have got from them has just been of a fantastic quality. I found the ideal hoodie and at an good price too considering its features. This was the Columbia Women’s Altitude Aspect Hooded Fleece Jacket. As soon as it arrived, I wanted to wear it. The…

A few years ago, I got a pair of Ventrailia Outdry Trail shoes by Columbia and have worn them nearly every day since, so I thought it was time for a new pair. For obvious reasons, I chose Columbia again. Everything by Columbia that I have owned has been made to a very high standard and always looks great. After browsing, I chose the Columbia Women’s Caldorado II Outdry EX Shoe, as they look very cool and have some awesome…

You may have read last month’s review of the Columbia Powder Lite Hooded Jacket. If you have, you will know how much I like the Columbia brand and the clothes they make. This is one of the reasons that I chose the Men’s Columbia Deschutes River Heavyweight Flannel Shirt which I’m going to review for you here: A main feature of the Deschutes shirt is the twin check pockets and the wooden effect buttons. I think the shirt has a…

The Columbia Men’s Powder Lite Hooded Jacket is an awesome coat for autumn and winter months. I fell in love with it because of its striking design and colouring. I think the three-colour design is really cool and definitely stands out from the crowd. There are other versions and colours of this jacket but I think that the combination of golden shoulders, ochre lower and blue arms is the best as it has a sort of retro vibe to it.…

One of my favourite autumn pieces for the wardrobe has got to be my brand new Nuna Vest by Sprayway. The Sprayway brand is superb, offering affordable, great quality, outdoor clothing. The vest really does look great for any occasion, be that walking through town or hiking across the moors. It is comfy to wear and the design in particular helps this stand out against other jackets I own. The best part about the vest is the feel of it.…
