    Test/Review: Paramo Katmai Light Shirt

    One of the conditions I always stipulate for any item considered for Test/Review is that it must be something I would use in the course of my activities.

That, after all, is the spirit of [...]

    Test/Review: Vango Gourmet Set M

    I love food, it’s no secret. Whether I’m cooking a meal during a camping trip or making sure I’m stocked up ahead of a journey to my next photo shoot, the matter of keeping hunger at bay is never far from my mind. For many years, I used a Trangia stove exclusively; compact, simple and [...]

Well, winter is properly with us now and as you know, it’s one of my favourite times of the year. Much aside from the outdoor opportunities it presents, there is the added bonus that I get to test some great and interesting items of kit as the temperature drops and ‘bad weather’ sets in.
