Tested: Rab Alpha Flux Jacket

I was lucky enough to get to test the Rab Alpha Flux Jacket. I was given it in November, probably a bit late in the year to get the full benefit, especially in the frozen North of Aberdeenshire. Anyway the first time I used it was on a mountain bike run on a fairly cool day and I loved it. … Continue reading

Tested: Rab Alpha Direct Jacket

I have used this jacket for a year now and it has become one of my favourite bits of kit. It’s warm comfy and regulates temperature better than anything else I have used.

Tested: Maier Sports Nil Trousers

This 4 way stretch trouser is a great weight for spring/summer use, wearing the fabric feels light and cool rather than most 4 way stretch soft shell trousers which are too warm for summer walking. They have a bonded DWR which makes them very water resistant and stay like this as the treatment is in the fabric and not just … Continue reading
