A tale of two wild camps

Place FellI have recently pur-

chased a few new bits of gear

for the coming winter months.

Firstly the PHD Minimus down

jacket, from PHD Mountain

Software. The jacket imp-

ressed me from the off, very light weight, packs down well and sure does keep you warm. The rating of the Minimus goes down to -5.

2nd attempt for  Aurora from Stac Pollaidh

g14

Those of you who have read

my previous blogs may have

noticed that I’ve wanted to

catch the aurora from the

summit of Stac Pollaidh for a

while. So, when I returned to

work on the 3rd of January and realised that there was a clear sky forecast for the night of 4th January in Assynt, I started to think about taking a trip over to catch some stars.            Click here to read more...

JETBOIL, WORTH THE PRICE TAG?

The king of the super stove, the

quick boil leader. Everyone has

heard of the Jetboil range. These

things perform without a doubt,

but the question is are they worth

the price tag? The Jetboil was the

first ever stove I purchased, a big leap into the unknown for someone just starting out.

THINGS ONLY OUTDOOR WOMEN UNDERSTAND

There was a time when I

worried about when my next

manicure would be, whether

to wear the shocking pink or

cobalt blue kitten heels and I

was obsessed with when the

Other Stories Sale started. Things have changed and now there is a whole new set of things that only us outdoor girls will understand...

PEN Y GHENT

After watching Julia Brad-

bury’s show “Britians Best

Walks”,  I decided to leave

my home just outside of

Oxford and head north up

the dreaded M6 on a

Friday night to the great

Yorkshire Dales. My VW

camper is great for just jumping in and heading off at a moments notice. Click here to read more....

BUCK KNIVES REVIEW

0550bks-b

Today, I wanted to feature the awesome interchangeable blade set by Buck Knives,

known as the Selector 2.0. Buck Knives is

known as one of the top blade makers in

the world, and having tested several of

their survival, EDC and cutlery knives, I can

attest to that sentiment. The blades are always crafted very strong, very sharp, with a quality of longevity that is rare in a lot of the mass marketed blade makers these days.   Click here to read more....

LEGALITY AND SAFETY OF SLEEPING WILD

b

Sleeping in a tent is great. I love it.

But for a quick, cheap, single night

microadventure a bivvy bag is brilliant.

Granted, if it pours with rain you won’t

have the nicest night of your life. But

on a clear, dry night when you can

stare at the stars until you fall asleep and then wake with the first rays of sunrise on your face, there’s nothing better.

COLEMAN MOSEDALE 5 TENT

Birdfair-2017-P1170137-17-08-2017

The plan for 2017 was to get out

camping with the family,

outdoor adventures for all of us.

For Zoe and Bubs this would be

new experiences, for Tubs a

common practice he has with

his mum, and for me a step back to when I was under 30 and much fitter, but our tent is to be the Coleman Mosedale 5 a new season tent exclusive to Go Outdoors.

FRAMELESS, NOT BLAMELESS

As everyone knows, Montane is a

decent company conscientiously

making innovative, functional gear.

Nonetheless I personally found their

Ultra Tour 40 backpack uncomfortable. Explaining why enables me to explore some general issues with frameless packs, as well as to relate how, for me, this particular pack seemed to make those issues worse than they need to be.
