2017 Web Site for Mobile, Tablet and Desktop Computers

Our new look 2017 web site will be published shortly. Last year was a difficult year with health issues still being unresolved and pesky hackers making our lives

a real headache! I hope at last we have plugged all the holes in our server firewall, and this year, be able to get on with what we do best and that is reviewing the latest gear and bringing you informative impartial reviews!

AKU Ultralight GTX-W currently on test

Ardblair Sports kindly leant us a pair of Women’s AKU Ultralight GTX and we have had them on test this winter. The boots have been subjected

AKU Ultralight GTX - W on Test

to the best, or the worst, depending on your point of view of what the weather in the Mountains of North Wales has to offer. Rain, sleet, snow, mud, slush and manure. Manure, why? Well a walk into the hills in Snowdonia and a lot of other rural places,often starts from a farm yard, traverses one, or you must cross one somewhere and they are always muddy and yucky, with poop, so we make sure all the boots we test have to pass the muck test and keep the testers feet warm and dry! Look out for this review and reviews on stoves, packs and outdoors clothing in the coming new Trail Testers online.
