Fatyak Samos SUP Stand Up Paddle Board Review

  I have had a stand up paddle board (SUP) now for over two years and it has definitely had quite a bit of use over that time. I’ve not used it as much as I’d have liked though as having just one means that it’s hard to take other people out with you. Adventures on the sea are always much more fun with other people. It was because of this that I’ve been longing for a second SUP for…

Fjallraven Men’s Abisko Trekking Tights Review

  With these trekking Tights, Fjallraven have combined the comfort and flexibility of leggings with the ruggedness and technical features and fabrics of serious trekking trousers.

It was because of this that I decided to write this useful review and do…

In particular, I had to consider how to keep the weight as low as possible. Even though gram counting doesn’t sound very cool, you’re going to have to lift every excess gram you bring, with every step. During our walk, we passed 60,000 steps…

Helly Hansen HP Fleece Jacket and Dromi Utility Pant Review

  Helly Hansen HP Fleece Jacket Review For our hike along the North Cornish Coastline, I bought some new clothing for the trip. As the trek was quite intense and involved walking over 140 miles of pretty severe terrain over just six days, I wanted some kit that was really going to help. I’ve worn Helly Hansen clothing during mountain walking in the past and have always found it really good gear. As part of our plan we had also…
