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.…

The weather has been absolutely awful recently so it’s the perfect time to get a new jacket for the winter season. We do a lot of outdoor activities, regardless of the weather so I needed something to suit this lifestyle. I had been doing a fair bit of research to find THE one and came across the Quechua Forclaz 400 Women’s Waterproof Hiking Rain Jacket. If you are unaware of Quechua, they are a Decathlon brand. We own quite a…

Over a year ago, I got my first pair of Teva boots (which you can read about here) and absolutely loved them. They’re one of my most warn pair of shoes, this is because of how amazingly light and comfortable they are and because of their high quality design and manufacturing. A year later and after lots of wear, they still look close to new and I’m still wearing them all the time. Now I’m a fully fledged fan of…

    The first thing you are going to need to bake waffles on your campfire is a waffle iron. The one I personally have is the Petromax Waffle Iron and I’d definitely recommend it. As with all Petromax cooking equipment (I’ve already reviewed their Kettle, Dutch Oven and Hobo Stove), it is very, very well made and will serve you brilliantly for years and years. Anyway, after you’ve got your waffle iron, you’ll need a campfire and some ingredients……

  I’m excited to be reviewing the Coleman Fyrestorm PCS backpacking stove as I really like portable stoves. This style is especially cool as it is a highly portable stove and contains everything you need to prepare a whole meal. The PCS in the stove’s name actually stands for Personal Cooking System, which is exactly what this stove is. As I said, the Fyrestorm PCS contains everything you need and this is because of the ingenious design which includes a…

  Summer is officially over and it is now time to get your winter wardrobe ready for the drop in temperature. I always think it is important to have some stylish, statement pieces to enhance your look during the autumn and winter seasons, so I was very pleased to have found such a great ladies jumper by Fjallraven called the Övik Scandinavian Sweater. Mike and I absolutely love this outdoor brand; not only do they create awesome clothing, but they…

  I’ve always been interested in BioLite Stoves; they’re very innovative and very different to other outdoor stoves on the market. I’m going to be reviewing the Biolite Campstove Two, this updated version of the original BioLite Stove has a 50% higher power output as well as new LED controls and improved control of its combustion. Inside the box you get the above contents: a stuff sack, FlexLight, fire starter, USB cord and instructions (don’t worry you wont need them,…

I’ve been loving my new Fjallraven Splitpack Large Travel Bag. We’ve used it on a couple trips and I’ve been using it just to haul stuff about and it’s brilliant. I did notice however, that no one seems to have written a proper review about it on the internet. Fjallraven have created a really interesting, unusual and useful design in the Splitpack and I thought it would be worth spreading the word and showing you all of it’s features. The…
