    Sea To Summit Self Inflating Seat Review
    Christopher Perkins
    Verified Buyer

    I shall never go anywhere without taking This with me! No really it’s absolutely brilliant, You can sit on rocks, rough gravel, tree stumps ,whatever because of the air cushioning you cannot feel it on your sensitive derriere. Compact, lightweight,seems pretty tough. I used to use an old piece of Camping Matt ...Not anymore first class all the way now :0)

    These gloves exude quality.not overly warm and with a decent cuff they sit nicely under jacket cuff and unlikely to let snow in.your jacket arms will not be bunched up.as with over the cuff dishwashing style.

    Inov8 Roclite G 286 GTX Review
    Andrew Cook
    Verified Buyer

    Came from a pair of Aku Pilgrim GTX I had always found too stiff and narrow in the toe for the kind of walking I do (fast and light Munro’s 3-6 hours at a time). These are hands down the most comfortable hiking boot I have ever worn. Plenty of room in the toe box and volume for the mid foot. Low heel to toe drop feels brilliant mechanically, I don’t feel like I’m walking on platforms but rather connected to the ground. Really light but sturdy construction means the break in period is non existent, comfortable straight out of the box. If you know how comfortable and well-fitting Inov8 trail shoes feel, these are similar but a good bit more ‘solid’ for want of a better word. Grip on muddy surfaces is 9/10, grip on dry surfaces is 10/10. They even grip on oil-soaked concrete in the workshop which is way above and beyond. In three weeks of daily wear at work (I wear them in and around a metalworking shop) and in the hills they have been flawless And show zero wear this far. Worth every penny.

    Although not yet worn in extreme wet, they are comfortable next to the skin and breathe well with no condensation. They are long on me but roll up easily once on. They seem tougher than previous makes that tore easily in Rocky situations.

    Exped SynMat UL Winter Review
    Warey
    Verified Buyer

    I am 6'3 and 86kg and purchased the exped synmat 9 wl winter mat. It's a big investment for a sleep mat but I used it for a wild camp in the Dale's recently and it didn't disappointment. Rolls down to a relatively small size so it didn't take up too much room in my sack and it's not too heavy either. Inflated in no time with the snozzle and I had the best nights sleep. No cold areas, my hips and shoulders were off the ground, plenty of room on it and it's noticeably warmer than any mat I've used previously. Looking forward to using it in winter, I'm sure it will do the job of keeping the cold at bay. Would definitely recommend. 👍

    Mountain Equipment Approach Short Review
    David Leather
    Verified Buyer

    I have had a pair of these for years and they continue to serve me well - they are great, durable and comfortable light-weight shorts. I have been so happy with them that I thought I'd get a second pair and was delighted to find that they're still made. The new ones are very similar to the original ones and come with a built-in belt, which is a bonus, although the unusual buckle latch takes a bit of getting used to. The shorts themselves don't feel so soft as the old ones and rustle a little as you walk. The side pocket has changed from being top-zipped to being zipped down the vertical (rear) edge. I find this fiddly to use and I wouldn't be comfortable to put a valuable in it for fear of it falling out. I have no idea why this has been changed. Mountain Equipment have also added an unnecessary push-in plastic insert into each zip-pull. One of them has already fallen out - more waste plastic to pollute the environment. So overall the shorts are satisfactory but the "improvements" have mainly detracted from what was an outstanding short. Facewest has an excellent website, the best price I could find and a great delivery-included service. I would certainly shop here again.

    Rab Womens Meridian Jacket Review
    Verified Buyer

    LOVE IT! Really lightweight and has a pack-bag to stuff it into which means it’s really small to carry. Repelling water beautifully but then it is brand new so would expect that. I ordered my usual size 12 but that was snug and no room to layer if it’s cold out. Customer service was quick to refund. I did have to pay for postage to return it and because of the cost of the jacket at £175 the postage was more to cover insurance but I knew the returns policy at the outset so this is not a complaint, just a tip. Ordered size up and this is perfect! Prompt to arrive too!

    Patagonia Houdini Jacket Review

    Bought as a warm weather belay jacket. For this its perfect! Super light, and the built in zip pocket/ clip loop work really well on the back of your harness, without having to faff with a stuff sack. Which would inevitably get blown away in the wind on a belay anyway! The hood is great with, or without a helmet on (BD Vector). Ive also used it walking, in some pretty terrible light/ medium rain, to which it dealt with exceptionally well. Very impressed indeed!

    Lightweight and packs down very small. Super waterproof (tested in blustery Scottish rain). Hood stays on well in strong winds and has a peak to keep rain out of your eyes. Quantum is a lovely orangey yellow colour. Sized up to Large as I prefer a longer, looser fit to add more layers underneath if needed.

    Bought one of these for each family member as a joke (they look like RAF roundels). They’re large, loose fitting and itchy. Might tighten up with washing. Maybe if I was less bald they would be more comfy - but if I had more hair I wouldn’t need a hat so often.

    Thermarest Stellar Blanket Review
    P Digs

    This blanket is amazing, I bought almost a year ago and have used it extensively since then. For such a thin blanket it is surprisingly warm, almost like a foil blanket but softer. It packs really well into its own pocket and even then will compress further in my pack. I use for getting cosy on the sofa, relaxing in the garden, and adding warmth to s sleeping bag. I've not tried using the snaps with a sleeping pad yet but have not found any problems from snaps or the zip whilst using the blanket. Finally, the service from Facewest was excellent and very forthcoming when the original design I ordered was unavailable.

    Verified Buyer

    This is a beast of a mat and the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Quite seriously as comfortable as a good bed. I think it's the thin layer of foam on top of the self inflating element that does it. Great for car camping, and I'd probably offer this to guests above our sofa bed.

    Excellent all round jacket. So much thought has gone into the design. Very high quality. Suitable for crossing an ice cap or going to the pub; I hope to do both.

    Top quality jacket and great service from FaceWest. GoreTex Pro works well for rainy environments and the various ties and synch mechanisms are practical for keeping yourself dry and the jacket fitted. My only reservation would be the lack of Chest pockets however I assume that’s part of the FL (Fast and Light) minimal design. Overall a great jacket I can recommend.

    When deflated this is tiny and is is a good size when inflated. I thought it was self inflating (and it is to an extent) but it needed a lot more than a few puffs to top up. So I ended up buying a sack inflater which works well but makes the whole thing very expensive. I left it up for a few days when I first got it and I seemed to need to top up the air again. I did have a good nights sleep on it though.

    Rab Vapour Rise Flex Vest Review
    Dave H
    Verified Buyer

    Basically this is pretty much what I have come to expect from Rab. A well thought out design, excellent materials and first rate construction. It may seem an odd or almost pointless buy but it does have some benefits namely being incredibly light weight and packing down to almost nothing, The outer Pertex Equilibrium is a very durable material and although not 100% windproof it is probably just about perfect in blocking out most of the wind but still being very breathable. The inner fleece material is very thin and I suspect its primary purpose is to wick away moisture but it does have a surprising amount of warmth for the weight.

    My initial impression was that the RRP is high, but no doubt in 10 years time when it's still got years of wear left in it, I will finally acknowledge that it was good value for money after all.

    I needed something for scrabbling through bramble-lined deer trails, climbing and crossing complex wilderness - these are the best I've found so far. The 4-way stretch means I, finally, never have to feel restricted to move athletically, meanwhile they are tough enough to hold their own against rough terrain. Will update if i reach their limitations.

    So far I've worn them nearly every day for about a month and they are like putting slippers on. Very comfortable but haven't had a chance to wear them going around any trials or hiking but I have high expectations and I think these will meet them.

    Great light weight T-shirt that came free with jacket. Fit is good, not too tight and keeps sweat off when running. I can fit medium but choose large for more room in shoulders. Good to use when you are not sure if the weather will change on your run, as it keeps you that bit warmer if needed. Would buy another

    Really light weight and can wrap up small into pouch that comes with it. Warm enough to keep chill off on summer nights or cloudy day. Fits to size as normal. Draw strings allow you create some shape if you want. The fact that it has a hood is a big bonus as in Scotland you get four seasons in one day! Overall great jacket:

    Patagonia Womens Perf Better Sweater Jacket (Summer 19) Review
    Stephen Ash
    Verified Buyer

    Purchased for my wife. After visiting the Patagonia web site and putting in her height, weight, age etc it came back that an xl would be a perfect fit but I bottled out. Figured if I bought her an extra large anything I would need to sleep with one eye open. The large fits but is snug so I either need a bigger fleece or smaller wife ;-) I would say fit is true to size. Colour is brighter and more vibrant in the flesh too. Well made and should last for years plus I love Patagonia's ethical and ecological stance

    Arcteryx Zeta SL Jacket Review
    Graham Ball
    Verified Buyer

    5 Stars for the usual excellent service from Facewest... from answering a query about the cut and fit of the jacket prior to order, to me receiving it the next day! My only gripe was that I used a 15% Arcteryx discount voucher, which would have increased to 20% if I had only ordered it the following day...just my luck!

    The jacket itself is everything I wanted. Very light and breathable, though it doesn't pack quite as small as I was maybe expecting, and it has no pouch or pack pocket. It is still ideal for use on wet summer days in town or trail. Arcteryx hood is as good as before, not sure if it is helmet compatible, but that is not an issue for me. Previous summer rain jackets have had pit-vents but that would have added to bulk, and the fabric seems very breathable anyway so no condensation issues so far. I have always worn size large in Arcteryx tops, despite being slightly bigger than the recommended chest and waist size. I was therefore concerned this would be too tight due to the 'trim' fit, but it still has room for a couple of light layers. The Arcteryx cut is so good, it fits as it should. I deducted one star for the fabric being rather crinkly and noisy, which is being very picky, but generally I am really happy and expect many years of spring and summer wear from this coat.

    This is the second pair of those shorts. Really good. Look great in blue. I wear size 30 and have the smallest size 30 in these shorts with a loose comfortable fit (rather larger than other brands). As other review said, buy smaller size if you want a slim fit but the cut is such that the shorts feel and look great in the loose fit.

    Mountain Equipment Aerofoil Jacket (Summer 19) Review
    Robin Taggart

    Despite being one of the simplest garments that Mountain Equipment make, this Aerofoil hooded windproof is also one of the best! A tiny pack size (it stores in its own Napoleon pocket) and minimal weight means you can always justify having it with you, no matter how stripped-down you're going. Having a hood means you can snug it up high around your neck on those evenings when the temperature drops just as you're heading home... And, despite being gossamer-light, the incredibly tight weave of this lightweight fabric means the garment helps you store an impressive amount of heat - way more than you'd ever imagine for a garment of this type! Highly recommended; this has become a 'standard' piece of equipment in my pack.

    Been wearing it for casual walks and my 5-10 mile runs. Very very breathable and have stomached temperatures from 8 degrees Celsius to 18. Anything hotter and I’ve packed it into the packable pocket and it’s great! The water repellent coating does the job in light drizzle and would feel confident in slightly heavier rain so thumbs up for my expectations. Facewest delivery was prompt so thanks guys.

    I have not worn the jacket in anger yet but from first impressions it’s well made, it’s certainly warm and I’m looking forward to trying it out in the Scottish mountains this winter. I also thinks it’s a slim fit, I’m 5’ 9”, 40 inch chest and 32” waist and I felt it was a just a bit to tight at the bottom. I’d like to mention that I was very impressed with the service at facewest, I purchased a medium first and had to exchange it for a large, the staff were great in helping me sort it out, good communications and I got my replacement jacket within a week.

    My waist is about 34 and the large seems a good fit. Nicely made. Quite long legs for a 3/4. (that's ok). Fit and cut seem good. No 'fly'. Nice material (as expected and feel comfortable.(I already have a 200 weight similar pair, which I like a lot). Did come packed in a large box (in addition to the manufacturers box), which was unnecessary.

    Excellent jacket, has many well thought through features and fits well. I have yet to use it in anger on the fells, but for a few recent sunrise walks and runs it has proven to be great piece of kit - its very lightweight and can be rolled into a very small volume, so should be ideal for stuffing in a rucksack. Early days, but so far very impressed.

My partner is 5'5" & went for the shorter one, although she's happy with it she probably should have gone for the standard length. I've bought myself one now so we can't wait to try them out!!

    Exped Fold Dry Bag Olive Drab Review

    Verified Buyer

    Decent bags, I can get my tarp crushed to a nicely packed, compact size, keep spare thermals dry, separate and again nicely packed, I think the sleeping bag was the biggest difference though, thanks to this selection of bags I have managed to get it down from the full bottom pocket to a good 2/3 leaving enough room to cram some extra stuff into the bottom with it. Overall, they're probably not the best ones out there, but for the price I have no complaints at all. Can't really comment on the water resistance on them as they've not seen any water, but I reckon they'll keep the rain out long enough to get a shelter up.

    To be honest I wasn't comfortable spending this amount on a pair of shorts but I thought it was worth a shot as I struggle to find a short I like the fit of (prefer longer inseam). These fitted the bill. They ooze quality and are a pleasure to wear. Not too baggy and not too short. I use them for running, biking, climbing and just everyday stuff. They have some water repellency which I think is a bonus. Welded seams which look and feel great. They are not your average pair of shorts. I am 6'2" and 85kg. I am usually around a 32" waist and a Medium fits me well. They finish just above my knees when standing. Fast postage. Can't complain.

    Climb On Creme Review

    Verified Buyer

    This is fabulous creme for putting on sore spots, grazes, scratches, chapped hands, lips and burns etc. Doesn't last as long as the balm but that doesn't matter we love this product! If you have them both then use them together. Then you have the best of both worlds 😃

    Inov8 Parkclaw 240 Review
    Paul
    Verified Buyer

    I received the Parkclaw on 17th April and have done around 55k in them.

    The shoes are nice and light, very comfortable and seem true to size with plenty of room in the toe box, which is good as I have fairly wide feet.

    There did seem to be some rubbing at the front initially but this OK now they've bedded in. I bought the Parkclaw as I'm not a full blown fell runner and mainly run through woods and on tracks and paths near where I live and these are advertised as a "door to trail" shoe. The main observation I would make is there already seems to be some wearing of the tread, but again this may be initial bedding in so I'm keeping an eye on it. All in all I'm happy with the purchase but will be monitoring durability and performance against my previous running shoes as I've only had them around a week and a half.

    Only tried in garden bivvy during lockdown so far... and is luxurious compared to my old thin mat. Seems to be the good alternative to Exped (only 20D fabric) and Thermarest (pricy, reputation for being noisy). But weight is misquoted here - regular is 665g not 530g. Windsock inflating bag works ok, not sure what the benefit of it being long/thin is - it just had to be different from other brands?

    Patagonia Cap Cool Lightweight Shirt Review
    Chris
    Verified Buyer

    This is my 3rd Cap Cool Lightweight tee shirt. I got one last spring and wore it ll summer. I washed it occasionlly but with its built in hygiene system you really can wear it for a few days in warm or hot without it stinking! These are perfect for purpose; when it's warm or hot you want clothes that feel light as light as possible amd these do that - they are so thin that they are barely there, it feels lile you are almost wearing nothing.

    I bought a long sleeve one too which makes an excellent base layer or can obviously be worn on its own.

    I bought this blue one jist to habe different colour. The fit on me is large as this is a fairly fitted shirt rather than a regular fit so if you are after something loose I would go for large - I am a 43ish inch chest.

    Be aware that the other capilene cool shirt, the trail shirt is a different fit, regular, I think is the word, or relaxed, so a medium is fine for me in that style.

    All in all these are probably rhe best warm weather activity (or not!) Tee shirts out there. I would 100% recommend them for comfort and practicality. I will be buying more.

    Rab Borealis Jacket Review

    Great jacket from rab . As a keen photographer I wanted something light to throw in the camera bag to keep the wind and chill off when required. This Rab top works really well and is very lightweight and so takes up no space when packed. I’m also finding it perfect when on the mountain bike as a windbreaker. Would definitely recommend this Rab Borealis jacket.

    This is my second Rab Power Stretch Pro Jacket. They are a bit pricey but oh so worth it...I have worn mine so much the pence per wear must be v low indeed. My first Power Stretch (now 4 years old) was one of the most useful items I took on a trek to Everest Base Camp - light but warm, versatile (can be layered under ski jacket, used as an outer layer or over a dress), stylish, quick drying, non-wiffy. The roomy zipped pockets make this very practical.

    Very pleased with this jacket. I'm a big fan of the quality of Patagonia gear and this is no exception. I can see it lasting for many years. I have a hooded version as well I have indeed had for years and used a lot. It's great! And so is this one!

    I'm usually 'large' for clothing and this does seem to come up a tad on the big side but it's very comfortable and M would have been too small.

    Arcteryx Cerium LT Jacket (Winter 19) Review
    Stephen Ash
    Verified Buyer

    I have a Rab Alpine jacket and a Rab summit jacket that fit either end of the spectrum as far as warmth is concerned. What I needed was something in between. The Cerium LT fills the gap nicely. Fits me well and so far it has performed very well. Seems to trap more heat because of the windproof outer fabric and I think it would be good between +6 and -10 deg C depending on layers worn, physical output etc. Personally I would like a heavier duty zip and velcro tabs on the wrists but then I'd probably be complaining about the weight and compressability. Packs in to a stuff sack that is sewn into the inside pocket and can then be clipped to a harness. Overall very impressed.

    Arcteryx Konseal FL Mens (Winter 19) Review
    Stephen Ash
    Verified Buyer

    This is the first pair of walking shoes or boots from any manufacturer that I feel need to be broken in. Did a gentle 3 miles on flat ground in them straight from the box and was not immediately impressed. The sole is very stiff from front to back meaning they don't flex. This caused heel lift resulting in blisters on my heels. I stopped several times to try different lacing patterns but couldn't eliminate the heel lift. I acknowledge that some of this could be my hobbit feet but the Scarpa approach shoes I got at Christmas haven't caused me any problems. I'm going to tape my heels and do several sessions on the tread mill in them and hopefully they will get more supple. I will say the sole is very grippy, as good as the 5tens they were purchased to replace and they will probably shine in more rugged conditions but can't help feeling slightly disappointed. Purchased during a 40% sale.

    Very warm and cozy, haven't properly tested water-repellency yet, but looks good too. Sleeves a bit too long for me, but that's not too bad. There's a lot of space around the neck even when the zipper is zipped till the end, so it gets breezy, you gotta have a scarf or a high neckline from the pullover, that's a bit annoying. Massive pockets which I find is a big plus. Overall a very nice jacket.

    Mammut Flip Removable Airbag 22L Review
    Glenn Spearing
    Verified Buyer

    I purchased this pack Feb 20 after deciding this one ticked all the boxes for me. An ideal size for a day off piste, a brand I trusted, sensible cost, durability and the option to transfer the airbag to a larger pack should I fancy some ski touring.

    After using for a holiday I'm pretty confident I picked the right tool for the job. A couple of calls to Facewest prior to purchase for advice was a great help too.

    Just try not to headplant in really heavy snow. You can accidentally set it off. My fault.... certainly not a slur on the product.

    Arcteryx Beta LT Jacket (Summer 19) Review
    Steve Treble
    Verified Buyer

    The main reason I only gave this jacket 4 stars is 2 fold.

    1) One thing I would have expected for such an expensive jacket is a 2 way zip, so you can unzip from the bottom or top.

    2) The hood design is too big ( if you don’t wear a helmet of some kind ), you can’t get a full closure around the face that easy because of the size of the hood. Perhaps if Arc’ Teryx were to give you the option of either a normal size hood or one which can cover a helmet it would be better.

    Other than that a fine jacket.

    Exactly what the description says, I absolutely love this jacket. So light and able to store in the smallest stuff bag for my Kilimanjaro trek in June. Went out in wind and rain to try it and it certainly met all my expectations; dry and warm and didn't feel the wind.

    Customer service was fantastic! I am a size 12 and ordered a medium but felt I needed the large. I returned the jacket on Thursday and received the replacement on the Monday.

All I can offer at this time is this - I'm 63kg 172cm ,, size small is perfect. With enough room for my hooded small Rab Cirrus flex or Medium Xenon jackets. As it's summer here it's winter weather credentials can only be gauged, by what others have experienced. Hope this helps you out.

    I already had a pair of these. I like them so much I bought another pair in case they are discontinued.

    Good gloves for all sorts of things in temps near freezing and below. At them moment I mostly wear them on my morning cycle commute. I have enough dexterity that I can even handle things as small as wireless earbuds without dropping them, which is remarkable for a full winter glove.

    They are adequate for most conditions outside the poles and below 5000m.

    Comfortable light weight jacket, which is wind proof and a little bit flexible. Shame there's no double zip though.

    I work in wintry temperatures, -5 to +4°C and this jacket on it's own isn't warm enough, but combined with another jacket, it copes fine. This jacket comes into it's own when temperatures rise to moderate, but windy.

    Well made, and zip like the elasticated sleeve ends and hood.

    Just home from 2 nights under a tarp on the Ridgeway, in February with frost and rain. The Thermarest XTherm packs small, is light and incredibly warm. It was comfortable, I sleep on my side and have to turn every couple of hours, this wasn't a problem at all, I never came off the mat and the noise was perfectly acceptable. Definitely recommend it if the price isn't a problem.

    It's the most comfy high quality rain jacket I tried on (and I tried a lot!). I especially like the long fit and the high side pockets that go well with a heavy backpack. The material is a bit louder than other jackets' which makes conversation nearly impossible for me with the hood on (might be better for you though, I don't hear that well).

    Can't say anything about waterproof, did not experience heavy rains up to now. The crimson/ruby is amazing! Everything fine and fast delivery!

    Thermarest Uberlite Review
    Mike.lawrence544@gmail.com

    I purchased this because the new neoair I had purchased about 3 months before was so load I couldn't sleep on it without getting a elbow in the ribs and shouts from other tents to shut up, one of the other guys there had one of these uberlite at first I was a tad sceptical about the really light fabric but it seems to hold up well so far also I would also recommend getting the large in any of these mats you would be amazed at the amount of difference the extra room gives you, the uberlite works well by no means as robust as the others but it does the just. I would definitely recommend summer late spring and a bit of fall for usage I really wouldn't be comfortable in the belows with this although you could couple with a foam pad or foil blanket underneath to help with escaping heat loss, but it's great for summer hikes. would definitely recommend.

    Dakine Poacher RAS 36L Review
    Andrew
    Verified Buyer

    Well so far so good, though I haven't used it in the mountains for real yet.

    Firstly Facewest delivered promptly, great service.

    Secondly, the bag itself seems very well made and practical. Not tons of space as some of the top is taken up by the RAS pocket, also meaning you can only access the main pocket from the back (the padded side that goes against your back). This is also where the water pouch pocket is inside too, not sure if that matters, perhaps will stop the water being too cold? Bit odd but, but works I guess as you'd never access your main pocket without taking the bag off anyway.

    Also important to note, the 'Tandoori spice' colour is not a rich orange as shown but more of a lighter, earthier orangy mustard colour. Still quite nice, but not at all what I was expecting. I found the same things with another Dakine bag I bought, so clearly thery're pretty bad at colour matching marketing images to reality!

    Anyway, can't wait to try it out in the mountains.

    I bought these as ski gloves as I was unimpressed with my full leather ski mittens. These gloves were not warm enough at -13C, however, I managed to fit some merino liners which gave enough warmth. As previously mentioned the fit is snug but eases with use. They dried much quicker than my old ski gloves. I think these would rate higher as mountaineering gloves rather ski gloves. For ski gloves I'd give 3 1/2 stars. Still looking for the perfect pair.

    It is what it is but used on new marmot working gloves for ice climbing in Norway and kept the glove waterproof. Needs to be worked in but is ideal with a leather glove used on a daily basis.

    Marmot Basic Work Glove Review

    Verified Buyer

    Bought these as a work glove whilst out in Rjukan - really warm (with a liner) whilst climbing and belaying but obviously they are leather and need reproofing. but for me they suited the purpose and a lot less pricey than the usual buy - i can buy a few pairs of these for the price of others

    Rab Xenon Jacket Review
    Chris Morgan
    Verified Buyer

    Having read extremely positive reviews on this jacket and seen it was the top 'Editor's pick" on my American go-to outdoor gear site, Outdoor Gear Lab, where they do stringent testing on the best outdoor gear there is out there, I decided to take the plunge and get one from Facewest - who always have great gear and excellent prices and customer service.

    I am not disappointed! Absolutely great jacket. No fancy stuff where it isn't needed, just super lightweight and very warm and windproof.

    The only negative for me and all that is stopping me awarding 5 stars is the hood. With a little tiny bit of effort they could have stuck a drawcord adjuster on it but they didn't and it is too big for my head unless I am wearing a beanie under it. Apart from that, I love it. A great investment.

    I'm very happy with my jacket. It's super comfortable, doesn't move when you lift your arms high above your head, and has ample pockets that aren't obstructed by a harness or rucksack belt. That said, the hood is substantial ... so great whilst you're wearing a helmet but a little too large if you're not.

    As usual, the delivery from Facewest is excellent ... thank you all!

    Verified Buyer

    I am a size 10 female and really liked this jacket but had to buy a small men's. in all my research of various belay type jackets, many of them were made only for men or the women's equivalent was not as good technically e.g. not as warm or with as many features. So frustrating! The Fitzroy would have been perfect in the correct size and shape for me. As it is, I love it but it is big in the shoulders and arms and the sleeves are way too long so I will have to turn them up. Come on mountain equipment and other brands, make the same jacket for women!

    i brought this pillow as an air pillow was the only pillow i have not tried for my neck and shoulder problem I've had for the last 20 years. i have used it for just over 1 week now and has made a vast improvement in my sleeping and the pain when i wake up. it took a few days to get pressure just right. i'm a side sleeper and found i didn't need to keep trying to mould it like normal fibre filled pillows. it keeps it shape but at the same time moulds to you automatically. i was amazed how small it folds up. for me in such a short time it has made a big improvement in terms of sleep quality and pain. thumbs up from me.

In terms of this product, well, I wouldn’t be buying a replacement watch strap if Suunto straps lasted longer than a few years before perishing. Looks good and very practical, but 2 stars off for lack of long term durability. Two small flat head screwdrivers needed for fitting.

    This is a slight departure for me anyway as most of the arcteryx lt type jackets that I have owned in the past have been fleece lined and not filled.

    As such I have found it slightly warmer and more wind resistant but much more versatile for general use in the UK and haven’t needed to layer it with a shell as much.

    Overall this is an excellent versatile mid/outer layer.

    Petzl Actik Core Review
    Des
    Verified Buyer

    Nice and light with a good beam. Mid setting is good for walking and running with good definition on the ground so easy to see undulations etc if you're running. Full beam is extremely powerful and more than I ever need. The red light is surprisingly usable if you want to be stealthy and not moving fast.

    My only gripes - the on/off button isn't the easiest to operate and I sometimes temporarily blind myself with the light reflecting off my hand when I operate it, and the ratchet on the up/down adjustment could be finer. Sometimes I feel I want to angle it in between two settings.

    G3 Alpinist Skin Review
    Roy

    Update to my previous review. Having been disappointed with these skins on a previous trip to the Canadian Arctic , I decided to give them another chance, this time in warmer conditions in the Alps.

    My original disappointment centred on their failure to adhere to the ski. As I suspected they were failing due to exceptional cold (despite friends other brand skins working fine), and this time around the were great. The skins ability to grip on snow was really impressive and surpassed where I might have considered fitting harscheisen.

    So, much better than when I used them in April/May, great grip on snow but suspect in really cold conditions (sub minus 25). Rating is tempered by their functionality in really cold conditions and without that they would be 4 star.

    This is a superb base layer. I’ve recently returned from a hiking and fat biking trip in -15 degree Finland and it performed exactly as as described. Keeping me warm, its comfortable to wear, it wicks sweat away, drying quickly and best of all - no smells! - which is amazing. I just want to add that there is minimal itchiness - I wouldn’t say none, but its barely noticeable. I will definitely buy this top again.

    I've had the 'non winter' version of the Torque trousers for a couple of years and really like the fit and comfort. I had some surgery recently and since have been feeling the cold for the first time ever - these were an obvious choice.

    Same fitted shape, but obviously these are lined with fleece on the inside. Same high wear tougher panels and the only major difference is these have a proper fastener at the waist vs the non winters being fully elasticated.

    I've had them on now for several weekends and they're crazy warm without being restrictive or 'heavy'. They even kept me warm all day whilst helping a friend remove a broken engine from a track car!

    Not bad
    Lawrence
    Verified Buyer

    I was disappointed that the compass arrived with one non-skid foot pad missing. Other than that, the compass was in new condition. Facewest's customer support were very co-operative and we managed to find a solution quickly. The compass otherwise seems okay.

    The map scale markings are merely painted on, whereas, the inch and centimetre markings along the edge are partly inscribed. Without the non-skid pads, I'm almost sure these markings would rub off quickly if using it on a map regularly; so make sure you don't lose any of the three non-skid pads.

    I'm not 100% confident in the plastic clip that holds the lanyard to the compass body, or the plastic adjuster at the neck end of the lanyard (I removed this and secured the end with a figure of eight knot). I'll be keeping a close eye on the clip at the compass end, though. This clip, however, could be discarded as well and something else easily improvised just for peace of mind.

    Overall, I really like the compass; it's a nice piece of equipment and it does more than just point north. The baseplate is solid and robust and the rotating bezel is equally robust and of a good and attractive design. The luminous markings work well in low light, the mirror is excellent and the little magnifier is nicely placed on the baseplate and very useful. The folding mirror has a locking facility, which is nice and keeps the rotating bezel well protected. A small alloy screwdriver for adjusting declination is attached to the lanyard and is ideal.

    I like that the compass is made in Finland and it states that on the baseplate.

    I do definitely recommend this compass and facewest for their service.

    I normally buy Large in jackets, so tried a Large in the Arc'teryx Fission SV and it fits perfect. So in my opinion true to size charts.

    Very good quality and in fact I subsequently bought the Arc'teryx Beta AR trousers to go with it. I might become a fan :)

    The only downside is this stuff is expensive.

    Leatherman Z-Rex Review
    Flash
    Verified Buyer

    This tool looks perfect for the purpose it was purchased for, however the description fails to mention that it comes with a carry case/belt pouch and so I had ordered a separate one which will need to be returned. Other than this slight misinformation, this is a very high quality product (as expected by leatherman) which should last me for many years. I have other leatherman tools which are approaching 15 years old and still work as needed so I do have high hopes for this tool also!

    Arcteryx Alpha SL Glove Review
    Michel ATHOW
    Verified Buyer

    Great pair of gloves, nice tight fit which is needed for dexterity, wearing them feels like a second skin. Warm feeling with a thin fleece lining, don't expect it to keep you warm in sub zero temps but for UK weather perfectly fine.

    I haven't tested the water resistance of it yet. Only negatives are that the opening for your hand to fit into these gloves are smaller than on average meaning you really have to squeeze those hands in. Also i wish the cuff was a little longer, maybe by an inch or so.

    Arcteryx Atom LT Vest Review
    Duncan
    Verified Buyer

    This is the first Arcteryx product I have bought, and whilst it is not cheap, it is clearly well finished and does look very smart. The fit is not super-tight (sorry, 'technical' fit!), but it is slim and comparable to other brand fits.

    The LT vest is very light and packs down to nothing, but it is still very warm and comparable to few older fleece vests without the bulk. It seems to work well over a base or mid-layer, or under a insulating jacket without overheating.

    The service from Facewest was also very excellent - i forgot to apply a discount voucher to my order, so i emailed them and within an hour I had a credit returned for the difference!

    Mountain Equipment Micro Zip Jacket (Summer 19) Review
    Pip

    Warm, cosy, light, thin, nice shape, cut surprisingly long so it doesn't ride up (on me at least!) - you'll wear it more than you need to because you forget it's there! The hood is just right to keep a draught out of your neck but scrunches away to almost nothing under another layer. For a midlayer fleece it's also fairly wind-resistant. Another ME staple, why haven't you got one?

    The only issue is I can't seem to get hold of one in ME pillarbox red!

    Great midlayer. The gridded fleece seems to make this very breathable and warm for its weight. Wore this and shell jacket and was fine at the top of Whernside in a gale with wind-chill down to -8°C. If you do get sweaty it dries quick. Hood is close fitting and traps heat well. It also feels well made.

    A note on sizing - I'm a slim 5'10" with 36" chest and needed to get an XS.

    Hope 2 Cell ES Battery Review

    Verified Buyer

    Debated over buying a new battery for my 7 year old Hope R4, or buying a new head torch when my original battery started dying unpredictably. Glad I did, the Hope is back to its usual brilliance and run times are much improved. Added plus is that the battery charge indicator gives a good idea of how much power is left. One less thing to landfill!

    One thing to note if you do use this as a head torch battery, it’s slightly heavier than the original battery but it hasn’t adversely affected the overall balance on my head at least.

    Ortlieb PS490 Heavyweight Dry Bag Review
    Phil C

    Ortlieb PS490 Heavyweight Dry Bag 22L in Red and Black was delivered in less than 48hrs which was fantastic. I already have a pair of Classic pannier bags 40L and a Rack Pack 24L in the same strong PS 490 material. Although they are all on the upper bracket cost wise, they are more than worth it. They are so strong and having the makers 5 year guarantee makes it all the more worthwhile. They wipe clean and the straps are solid. With most off Ortlieb Roll Top Closure Bags you have to remember the main point is to squeeze the air out before tightly rolling 3 -4 times to make that all important seal so that the contents remain waterproof and dry. It becomes the ‘norm’ after the first couple of times. The insides can be wiped from any damp gear you have thrown in there. I just love their kit!!

    This dry bag will be used for a number of tasks but primarily I bought it for kayaking and I was surprised at how much stuff it took.

    I will certainly be visiting Facewest again soon.

    Thanks.

    Mountain Equipment Changabang Jacket Review
    David M
    Verified Buyer

    Performs exactly as expected, fits well, keeps me warm and dry. Seems very breathable so far. Water forms in little beads on the surface. The wrist fasteners work well. Very lightweight. Two very large pockets at the front work well. The two armpit zips work well. The two pockets at the bottom are perhaps a little awkward. Not sure why they have used two different kinds of zip on the jacket. One sort seems waterproof, the other very waterproof. I would have preferred a separate collar, but it's not possible to find a jacket with EVERYTHING exactly as you want it. As I'm walking along I hear a tap..tap..tap of the various dangly bits tapping the jacket.

    I was skeptical about Facewest charging 15% less than other retailers, but I have to say that the service was excellent.

    I'm giving the hat 5 stars on the basis that it hasn't been tested on a mountain in the rain. I always have a challenge trying to find a hat that fits. Big head. Usually it takes a 63cm hat to fit. This fits snugly without being tight in an XL. It feels warm. It would have been great up Ben Lawers about 2 weeks ago in constant rain. That's what drove me to buy. I needed a hat with a small peak. This hat fits the bill.

    Sea To Summit Ascent I Review
    Martyn
    Verified Buyer

    Only used once so far, but looks like being a great bag. The down came with a certificate showing the actual loft was 800, better than the 750 minimum advertised and the bag was warm and comfortable on Dartmoor with a minimum temp close to zero. With a liner I am fairly confident I will get good 3-season use from this bag.

    I also particularly like the cut & proportions that keep the warmth in but give you some wriggle room and don't feel constricting. The ventilation options with the zips are also brilliant, especially for those that 'suffer' from hot feet.

    So far a great bag - not the lightest or warmest but light and warm and a great, flexible compromise.

    As ever, great price and service from Facewest.

    Rab Xenon Jacket Review
    Mike
    Verified Buyer

    Usual Rab quality construction.

    I ordered a medium as that’s my normal size but it was a bit too baggy for my liking so I returned it for a small which is a neater fit yet still gives full movement. The jacket is very warm and great in the wind, and also seems to be fine in light rain. But it’s not that breathable and if you are working hard or walking fast then you will notice this. I read a few reviews prior to buying the jacket so was well aware of this issue. A couple of under arm zip vents would be a great addition.

    If your priority is warmth and protection from the elements in a light weight synthetic jacket then it’s a great option.

    As described this is great piece, that I'll use in layering in cooler climates it's meant for cool summer evenings / mornings however I think it will work for me as a comfortable midlayer. It is a smart looking, casual, understated garment. So after hiking in the hills, it affords me an outfit that can be worn out into town under a lightweight wind jacket that doesn't scream tourist / traveler.

    Patagonia Down Sweater Review

    Incredibly warm for such a small weight and pack size. This is a replacement for my original down sweater which has been relegated to back up having been repeatedly patched with sailmakers tape.

    Rab Winter Torque Pants Review
    Stanislav Horacek

    These are the best winter trousers yet!

    I used winter trousers from many brands from Mammut, Mountain Equipment and others but Winter Torque Pants are best made so far. Better than discontinued Rab Defendor pants. Warm, comfortable, robust, breathable, good cut.

    Suunto Strap Xlander Military Review
    Roger Holdsworth
    Verified Buyer

    I was looking for a strap replacement for my Suunto Yachtsman. In fact the case on the Yachtsman is the same as the Xlander and so the strap fits perfectly. Removing the old strap was interesting as there's effectively no clearance to remove the pins. In the end I found the only solution was to cut of the strap! Refitting was slightly tricky but I succeeded and the new strap is excellent.

    Arcteryx Covert Cardigan (Summer 19) Review
    Bill Grier
    Verified Buyer

    I really liked the quality and finish of this cardigan, but I then discovered that the sleeves were way too tight, which would have prevented wearing a sweater beneath it.

    A pity really, but I suppose Arcteryx do call it a cardigan for the reason that it takes the place of a sweater. In any event it just wasn't for me.

    Facewest - amazing service, including the refund. I will certainly use again

    Rab Focus Hoody (Summer 18) Review
    DrG

    This Focus Hoody from Rab is my go to jacket for early morning activities during late spring and early autumn (as well as the summer when it's particularly brisk first thing in the morning).

    Perfectly suited for dry, cool conditions, the merino wool is contoured, soft (and cuddly - other halves take note!) and with good warmth, but not overly so.

    I really like the decently-sized pockets as well as a well-positioned and sized, Napoleon. The zips are free-running (yet to snag) and the hood might be helmet compatible but it's not nearly as big as other such hoods and that's fine with me - it can easily fit a beanie if required.

    Just about smart enough for the odd evening out as well, it's a winner for me, especially as it's easily covered with a light rain jacket if required.

    Lightweight is the icing on the cake!

    Rab Nucleus Hoody Review
    Dr G

    Frankly I was a bit disappointed with this hoody. Whilst comfortable and contoured with a great colour (I got the "zest"), it's not wearing well (fraying around the zips) and really isn't very warm. Not hugely surprising about the warmth though given what it's spun from, but the fleecy interior does suggest it'll be snugger than it is.

    It's ended up being a "wear around the house" item and then not during the cooler months either.

    Arcteryx Womens Zeta AR Jacket Review
    Marie Fitzgerald
    Verified Buyer

    Definitely worth the money. Some reviews on other sites say this jacket runs small but I found the fit perfect. I’m usually a 10 in coats to give room for layers and a small fits perfectly.

    The jacket is waterproof and Windproof. It’s also light which is perfect for hiking. The longer length at the back adds to the practicality and I like that the zips are designed for water to keep out of the pockets. The rib zips are useful for ventilation. The hood is a decent size and stays up. All in all, very very happy.

    As for Facewest... a new discovery for me and really love this company. Ordering was easy, communication efficient and the tracking worked. I’ll order from here again.

    Really quick delivery too.

    One minor note though: the product is advertised with a back pocket (the label that comes with the trousers also contains a picture and reference to it on the trousers). There wasn't one on mine! Its a minor advertising point as they really are great clothes.

    I am between a 33 and 34 waist and Large fits perfect.

    Arcteryx Incendo Vest (Summer 19) Review
    John

    his pains me as I am an Arcteryx fan but I bought this on the understanding that its primary purpose is to keep the wind out while keeping me reasonably dry and cool.

    However, the arm holes are so large that any wind from the side would just blow straight in in so i sent it back.

    If it only had a snug ruche on the arms it'd be great.

    Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat Review
    Tony
    Verified Buyer

    We have a few items of Outdoor Research clothing and hats in our household. It came as no surprise that the Sombriolet was every bit as well designed and made as those.

    It may seem a little "OTT" for UK sunshine, but that is where it will get most if its use. The light weight and ability to fold flat makes it easily transportable. I am sure it will wash well if needed. The very broad brim will protect where sometimes the hats from a well known Canadian maker don't succeed.

    Sizing appears spot on. I was able to try one on in a darker colour elsewhere, so I knew it would fit as I am at the upper size of the hat that I bought.

    As a frequent hat wearer, I know this one will get plenty of use. I am sure it will offer the protection from the sun I want, and help to keep me cool. Overall a good buy.

    Ever lighter from THERMAREST. Compared to other mats it is amazingly light. Have used it for 5 nights bothying and backpacking with our golden retriever. I cover the bottom with my sack liner and it has lasted longer than our Alpkit.

    It has a nice crinkly feel to it and it packs away neatly but is not as noisy as our other mats. I have got the small to give the dog more room. I did seem to slip of it more easily on a hard bothy floor. Great piece of kit.

    I love it! I have been using an old style Thermarest for years, and got by, but I treated myself to this for a recent mountain marathon, and it was light, small and amazingly comfortable. It was the right size for me (5.5 ft and uk size 14), not too narrow to slide off, or too slippy fabric, but not too wide to fit in a very small 2man tent. Comes with a handy puncture repair kit should it be needed at some point. Very happy.

    Good quality lightweight glove, used for mild weather on the dry slope, offering adequate protection, good dexterity and the touchscreen pads work well too. Print on inside of index finger has lifted straight away but it serves no purpose and has no bearing on performance. Size wise, I usually wear a size 10 glove, sometimes 11 depending on the manufacturer, I bought the XL in these gloves and they fit perfectly. Big thumbs up to Facewest and their staff too, the guy I spoke to went to the warehouse, found the gloves and tried them on for me to advise me on the fit, very helpful!!

Having spent many years treading on pegs or bashing them in with a rock I have just done 5 days walking around the Isle of Wight with this 'luxury' item. Worth every one of its 312 g. Best part is the claw for pulling pegs back out. No bent pegs on the trip. No grazed ankles when my foot has slipped off a peg and no cut fingers from pulling pegs back up. Superb. Highly recommended.

    Sea To Summit Aeros Premium Pillow Review

    The Aeros Premium pillow is really very good. Previously I've used Exped's regular version in large and had some good success with it (my review's still visible for those who are interested).

    But having tried the Aeros, I do think this is an improvement; if only as the pillow surface is soft to the touch and doesn't actually need to be covered with a fleece (although it'd probably benefit from such, longevity-wise).

    Excellent ergonomics, clever valve, stuff sac that actually fits nicely together with instructions on the exterior; carry-handle and sensibly-sized toggle.

    Definitely recommended (we prefer the large version - 35g more but far less fiddly during the night as it tends to fit into the entire sleeping-bag hood, rather than moving around).

    Just what I was after - something easy fitting without being overly baggy to relax in at camp after a day's walking. Also to use as PJs instead of having to carry around a sleeping-bag liner. Or even as emergency thermals for under my trousers.

    You're unlikely to win any fashion competitions as they're not exactly slim-fitting but the material is soft with some warmth. No draw-string or pockets but given that the weight for mine (in medium) was only 160g, that's fine with me!

    Not for me I'm afraid.

    Ordered the medium as I'm typically around 31 but don't like a tight fit around the waist and my legs are pretty muscular, so although I often get small tops, I tend to move up a size in leggings etc. But the waist-band on these is very snug - weird, as they've also provided a drawstring (to make it even tighter!).

    The material isn't soft touch but it's not rough either; the little rear pocket is good for cash or cards; the ankle zips are very clever as it keeps the tights figure-hugging in the lower-leg.

    For reference, the weight of the mediums supplied was 257g (without the cardboard tag!)

    Not used yet, but purchased for a Via Ferrata trip in Italy. There aren't too many 30m ropes about, although there are several by the meter, but without finished ends. Mainly intended for top-roping, so 9.5mm was a compromise as we'll have to carry it a long way too. We don't intend to test its fall characteristics!

    Brilliant pack.

    Best I have used for ski mountaineering. Light, practical and so easy to use. Skis, axe, even a pair of huge antlers all fit easily. Also really like the stowage system in the top for simple accommodation of ski skins etc.

    G3 Alpinist Skin Review
    Rafa
    Verified Buyer
    Shropshire
    Genuinely disappointed in these skins! The skins themselves grip really well in the snow; unfortunately they do not adhere well to the ski! This might have been due to the environmental circumstances: really cold conditions on Baffin Island, but I have never had such frustration with skins. I bought these skins specifically for this trip and whilst I would not normally try out new untested kit on a big trip, the environment made realistic testing impossible. No amount of cleaning and keeping the warm (inside sleeping bag at night & inside jacket otherwise) worked.After a couple of days I wished I had taken my slightly tatty, well used but trusted BD skins. The G3 skins completely detached themselves twice - both times on really awkward ascents, resulting in so much time and faffing that my hands started to freeze up. On the plus side they do pack down pretty well andgrip really well on the snow. However the amount of swearing due to frustration with these skins ain’t worth it. They are probably awesome in the Alps in spring - which is probably an excellent excuse to go away again!

    I had the old Airzone 35 which I loved but the only down side was there were no pockets at the front which is why I got this upgrade as it's got the really handy pockets to the front.I am however a little disappointed with the amount of straps on it it is confusing and doesn't look as sleek and stylish as the old style.It does however have more room and is still comfortable to wear and lightweight.Yet to properly use it so these are my initial observations.If you don't like too many straps this is not the rucksack for you

    Thermarest Basecamp Review
    Dunc
    Verified Buyer
    Dumfries

    My previous one of these finally gave out, ballooning in one area, after 2 DECADES of daily, well nightly really, usage! That's 20 years of sound sleeps both at home and base wild camping. For a hundred quid. £5 a year - not bad eh? As a woodsman my job is hard musculoskeletally and a back injury 20 years ago means that I can no longer sleep on a bed. So I can't really rate this product highly enough, since what price does one put on a good night's sleep?

    I looked hard at the £130 (poorly named) Luxury map sleeping mattress but decided against it because my usage is so much that I need to be able to both flip and rotate my sleeping mattress to ensure longevity. And hey, if it ain't broke... What I did do was go for the largest size one, the XL, but in hindsight there was no need. Excellent products, and made in Ireland not China so significantly better for our environment.

    I found Facewest's information videos very helpful.

    Bought this to add air to a new Thermarest MonoKing 3D mattress. It is very light and simple in operation - really neat idea. However I found it tricky keeping thesac attached to the mattress whilst pumping - the elasticated mouth seemed to get pulled off rather easily.

    It took some time to fully 'inflate' on first opening; I guess the manufacturers stuff them and they stay like that for some time? Takes a little bit of getting used to; firm but comfortable with enough 'give' to allow you to sleep on your side. Much better than an airbed. Have not tried stuffing yet!

    Exped Synmat 9 Pump Review

    This is a great mat! Reasonable weight for a full size mat, very well insulated (it's always good to have that extra warmth for peace in mind), very comfortable and surprisingly silent (soft upper material has cotton-like texture). And, of course, built-in pump is a must! No more need to use clumsy pump sacks. You can always cut some grams off your gear, but either you sacrifice your comfort, either you spend a lot of money.

    This is right what you need for four season comfort and for acceptable price point. The best mat design so far. Go for it!

    Fantastic tent, I have three 'rucksack' tents and this is by far the best. Lightweight yet roomy enough to sit up in and a large vestibule for dirty boots etc. Nicely designed all-round, including the alloy tent poles which click together as if magnetic and you can erect this tent in about 5 minutes. When laying down, the roomy arched shape ensures your head is not mere centimeters from the inner fabric (unlike other rather claustrophobic, low-profile options). I am smitten!

Totally windproof but very breathable so no condensation when exercising. Used mine for cycling and running and so impressed bought another for hiking.

    Only minor downside is that it only has one small chest pocket.

    OMM Ultra Flexi Cup 250ml Review
    Simon
    Verified Buyer
    Cardiff

    I bought this cup for use on races where disposable cups are not allowed and also for drinking from springs and streams. It's a simple idea, just a plastic pocket that you can fold and then stash in a belt or vest. You just squeeze the rim to open and the fill with water. The tab on the side of the rim stops you dropping the cup when it has the weight of water in it. I only fill it half full as I'm likely to spill it otherwise.

    A little pricey for what it is but I trust OMM products and I expect this will last some time.

    Dakine Poacher RAS 36L (Winter 18) Review
    Brian
    Verified Buyer
    Ayrshire

    After thorough on-line research of spec, reviews & Youtube, I decided Dakine was the best for me. I have other Dakine bags and gear. Their kit is always well designed and strong with a lot of attention to technical detail from the user perspective.

    Good pocket size & placement. Very good straps for carrying board or skis. Retractable helmet net. Tall enough to get shovel, probe & Z ski poles inside the bag so nothing has to be outside. The side pocket is ideal for a bottle. Compression straps tighten beyond the zips so as not to stress the zips - something that worried me with the Ortovox bags.

    I purchased the 26L and 36L RAS Poachers so that I could trial pack them both with full BC touring & split board kit and also compare the compressed size when empty. The compression is so good that the compacted sizes are almost the same so I kept the 36L bag and returned the 26L (Great service Facewest.) Note that Dakine is generous and 36L means more than 36L usable volume unlike some other brands which are smaller and include the gas and airbag in their quoted sizes. The right shoulder strap has protected zip pocket for hydration tube and/or radio. Some other brands don't have this.

    A couple of limitations to note:
    (1) the back protector (optional extra) fits into the water bladder pocket so not much space left for water
    (2) the tube routing is tight to fit each morning and fully opening the main pocket bends the tube back. Also, I once left the zips in the wrong position (i.e. the middle of the top) and they opened themselves when I had a few tumbles.
    Other guys in my group have other brands and the view is than the Dakine is the best kit.

    Dakine Poacher RAS 36L (Winter 18) Review
    Brian
    Verified Buyer
    Ayrshire

    After thorough on-line research of spec, reviews & Youtube, I decided Dakine was the best for me. I have other Dakine bags and gear. Their kit is always well designed and strong with a lot of attention to technical detail from the user perspective.

    Good pocket size & placement. Very good straps for carrying board or skis. Retractable helmet net. Tall enough to get shovel, probe & Z ski poles inside the bag so nothing has to be outside. The side pocket is ideal for a bottle. Compression straps tighten beyond the zips so as not to stress the zips - something that worried me with the Ortovox bags.

    I purchased the 26L and 36L RAS Poachers so that I could trial pack them both with full BC touring & split board kit and also compare the compressed size when empty. The compression is so good that the compacted sizes are almost the same so I kept the 36L bag and returned the 26L (Great service Facewest.) Note that Dakine is generous and 36L means more than 36L usable volume unlike some other brands which are smaller and include the gas and airbag in their quoted sizes. The right shoulder strap has protected zip pocket for hydration tube and/or radio. Some other brands don't have this.

    These are very good gloves. This is my second pair. They take a bit of getting used to. They are heavily fluffed up inside and therefore feel a bit undersized but once they have had 5 hours on they get comfy. Very happy with them.

    Exped SynMat UL Winter Review
    Nigel

    Chester

    I spent a lot of time researching this purchase and I was very happy with this choice on the first time out. Super comfy, warm and quick to inflate. If like me you move around a lot whilst you sleep the rectangular mat makes lots of sense, I stay on this may without being woken with cold feet/ lower legs after slipping off the mat. The weight ain't bad also for its size/ warmth rating.

    Looking forward to giving it a more demanding test in colder weather but initially I'm super pleased :-) Oh and the schnozle thingy bag inflation system is brilliant.

    It's the usual from Arcteryx in terms of quality of construction and design.I decided to go for a Medium and it's a little bit short on the sleeves and body (I'm 6'4 and 90kg) but I can live with it as I think a large would be a bit too big even in a trim fit.What this means is it's a close fit and the stretch fabric works very well.It's also warm enough as a mid-layer and I can pair it with an outer given the fit.It seems to be good on its own for me down to around 2 degrees, depending how active I am, and I haven't tried it below that.

    This is the third Covert Hoody that I've bought. They're that good. Living somewhere between softshell, fleece and knitted cardigan, the clever Arc'teryx bods have invented a garment that's warm, stylish and eminently comfortable for everyday wear.

    Made from Arc'teryx's Alpenex heathered fleece, the inside has a brushed polyester fabric and the outside looks like close knit wool, but without the sag. The cut and sizing are true, and the hood comes in handy on colder days (there is a hoodless version with a high collar)

    Fantastic glove for ski touring. Not 'very' warm so have a OR shell mitten that I put over them in cold weather or if carrying axe in cold weather. Recent 8 days touring in good weather meant they were sufficient for 90% of time, particularly when working uphill.

    Very dextrous - no problems making transitions with skins on/off or doing boots up. Appear to have moulded to my hands very quickly.

    I like these cheat sheets. They have a firm feel which makes them easy to handle. I also appreciate that they are black, as white ones areeasy to miss in the snow at the point that they are removed from the skins. So far, I have only applied them to my skins for storage until next season, but theyseem like a good product.

    They were delivered by the Post Office earlier than expected but I had checked in advance that they would be able to be posted.

    Mounted these bindings to Rossignol Sky 7 HD skis and have been using them the whole ski season (with Scarpa Maestrale RS boots). Obviously not the lightest touring binding around, but their downhill performance (they ski like an alpine binding) more than makes up for the little extra work needed to go uphill.

    I don't do long tours, but can't foresee a problem with the weight if I did. Easy to use and solidly built; to my mind, the best crossover touring/free skiing binding around. Pleased with the investment (they are not cheap).

    Exped Fold Dry Bag Primary Colours Review
    Sean
    Verified Buyer
    Cockermouth

    I spend a lot of time in the mountains and often wild camp up there too. To be honest I wasn't over concerned about the 'dry' aspect of the dry bag as all of the contents in my rucksack are already inside a large dry bag and if it's chucking it down I put the cover on my sack too.

    I bought a number of Exped dry bags in the primary colours for ease of identification of my kit and to save faffing about when I'm looking for something, and for this the work extremely well and I highly recommend them. I've got one for stove & food, one for warm, dry clothing, one for wash kit, etc., etc. You might think this is a bit of a pointless review of a 'dry bag' as I'm not able to tell you if it is, or isn't. However, if like me you are looking to organise your kit then you need look no further. Who knows, they may even be waterproof too!

    Fritschi Axion Crampon Review
    Jon
    Verified Buyer
    London

    These ski crampons did their job. In a group of tourers all wearing crampons, these were some of the best.

    Benefits:

    They stay on the ski - therefore if you hit compact snow, you can flip them down and march straight on through.

    They have a left and right, so the outer ski grips the snow, but the inner ski doesn't catch on the other foot (need to remember to put them round the right way!)

    They fit well, are sturdy and gripped the snow well.


    Drawbacks:

    They can become frozen in position - so moving them isn't as simple as you initially hope.

    They can cause (small) damage to other equipment from the upturned spikes when skiing/hiking.

    I bought a pair of these as part of converting the majority of my clothes to Arc'teryx. If it helps, I have a 32 inch waist and initially bought medium. I thought it wasn't tight enough for me and returned it for small which was perfect despite the minute size difference (by overlaying them).

    I've worn them in temperatures down to 0C with normal trousers/jeans and felt they noticeably held the cold/draft at bay which was perfect!

    This is a great addition to your winter rack, with razor sharp teeth, minimal weight on the rack and effortless screw mechanism with the flip out handle.

    It's a great piece of engineering. I'll opt for a longer one for crevasse rescue/ski tour use as this could still be a lot lighter than other screws of shorter length, and you might as well go for extra security at reduced weight. On the down side.... well... I couldn't find any. As ever BD strike gold.

    Thermarest LuxuryLite Ultralite Cot Review
    Eric
    Verified Buyer
    London, UK

    Feels very comfortable as a cot. But it's not suitable for backpacking or a one person tent. To put it together you need to have the fabric outstretched and to stand on it to attach the bows. It is impossible to do this kneeling or inside a tent; to dismantle is really hard and the first time one of the feet broke and the fabric tore (its very flimsy). Sadly if hiking in the UK this would be pretty useless as it would not be practical putting up in wet conditions where you have to turn the cot sleep-side down to construct.

    Marmot Basic Work Glove Review
    Erik
    Verified Buyer
    Stockholm

    I bought a pair since everyone seems to love theirs. I don't get the hype. They are ok, sizes run small though, and not optimal for my hands. The size that fits my hands best is M, but the gloves are so short that the elastic hem ends too low on my wrist. To be able to pull them high enough I would need L, but then the gloves are too lose.

    I have had mine for 2 years now, and although they work just fine, the inner lining is worn out, and full of holes. It takes some fiddling around when putting the gloves on, since some fingers get stuck in the lining. And I have not even used them for any rope work, just civilian use while walking the dog, shoveling snow outside my house etc.So overall, I like my pair but I'm not very impressed by the quality.

    They look really nice, though, and the price is right. Will probably just buy another pair!

    Just back from Finnsmarkvidda in the north of Norway after a week of skiingand camping out. Nighttime temperatures dropped to -30C on a couple of nights but I was always warm and toasty in this sleeping bag, combined with the Mountain Equipment Down 7 sleeping mat. Combination of cooking in the tent porch and breathing means there'sa lot of frozen condensation in the tent, so the bag inevitably gets a bit damp, but there was no loss of warmth.

    It compares very well to the Mammut Denali bags that I have hired, both in performance and price. Only downside is the size of it, even when in the stuff sac, which is about 70l. So, fine for a basecamp or on a pulk system but no good for backpacking. Comes in a nice storage bag as well as the stuff sac.

    Overall, very pleased with it.

Nighttime temperatures dropped to -30C on a couple of nights but I was always warm and toasty in this sleeping bag, combined with the Mountain Equipment Down 7 sleeping mat. Combination of cooking in the tent porch and breathing means there'sa lot of frozen condensation in the tent, so the bag inevitably gets a bit damp, but there was no loss of warmth.

    It compares very well to the Mammut Denali bags that I have hired, both in performance and price. Only downside is the size of it, even when in the stuff sac, which is about 70l. So, fine for a basecamp or on a pulk system but no good for backpacking. Comes in a nice storage bag as well as the stuff sac.

    Overall, very pleased with it.

    And usual speedy service from Facewest, too!

    I bought these for a trip to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco as I did not want the weight of a full boot given the easier trekking there.

    They proved to be absolutely ideal - light, comfortable and with a good grip. They also look well built so should last a bit longer than my other approach shoes have.

    Even better was that they look good enough to go to a halfway decent restaurant without too many sideways looks!Great price and first class shoe.

    Fritschi Vipec / Tecton Ski Leash Review
    Mike
    Verified Buyer
    Edinburgh

    This is an alternative to a ski brake and includes a plastic heal step to be screwed to the rear binding in place of the ski brake. (Of course, you could have a brake as well and discard this heal step). The front attachment includes a loop of wire that goes under the front binding - so you have to attach this when mounting the bindings. You can't really retrofit. The wire loops for attaching the leash to the front binding are rather stiff and somewhat difficult to assemble.

    My reason for purchase is that the Vipec toe piece can release in uphill mode if you fall forward when skinning. You are then in danger of loosing the ski as the brakes will be locked up. In addition the rear brakes on the Vipec can get stuck up when changing from walk to ski mode - at least on my 2nd gen Vipecs. Again, a danger of loosing a ski during transition. This leash does the job of extra protection, though some may prefer a home-brew solution.

    Excellent service from Facewest, skins arrived very promptly. Skins pre-cut to length for a range of ski lengths is an excellent idea. Supple and light, excellent in use and don't soak up much moisture in wet snow.

    Loses two stars though for the shoddy and woefully under-powered cutting tool! This broke after cutting the first skin to shape. About time Black Diamond gave a bit more thought to the design of this, or at least supply one that lasts longer than two cuts. G3 cutting tool is a lot easier to use and more substantial. Overall, good skins as usual from BD, but let down by this detail.

    Dakine Kodiak Glove Review
    Ray
    Verified Buyer
    Stafford

    I bought these to replace a similar all leather Dakine glove that developed a cut from carrying skis but had given great service for 6 seasons.

    If you like a shorter glove that fits under the cuff of your ski jacket, then these are the ones to get. The stitching is good and the leather hard wearing but soft. The gloves have a velcro wrist closure which my earlier version did not have, (making it easier to get on and off) and a small loop inside the cuff which ideal for adding a wrist loop if needed. The Pimaloft insulation in the glove means they are a warm glove but to be honest that didn't get a fair test as the weather was so warm the week we skied. The wool lining is warm and is fixed securely inside the leather outer so does not pull out if your hands perspire, as has happened with other expensive gloves in Spring skiing conditions. The glove comes with a sachet of wax to further add o the waterproofing.

    A great looking,hard wearing glove and well worth the price tag.

    Experienced back country/ski mountaineer.

    Just used them for a 3 day trip in the Alps, all touring, significant ascent and descent.

    Great poles, light, adjustable (look for the little widget wheel to set tightness, otherwise they might slide).

    Only drawback is the baskets are quite floppy which made binding adjustments on the go (while ascending) a little difficult.

    Great gloves for warm-ish weather alpine climbing. They're fairly thin, so very sensitive and agile for placing protection and any other fidly tasks.

    The fabric is not waterproof, but does an excellent job protecting from wind and mild snow / rain. Insulation is on the thin side, so they're perfect for warm-ish winter days (around 0) or for summer alpine climbing.

    Purchased for my 6ft son to ensure he has a mat ready for a hiking trip through Peru. The shop suggested buying the extra long, wider mat and their advice was really appreciated.

    I have only seen my son inflate and deflate this once, but it looks like a very good piece of kit. I am so glad l rang as this is just about long enough and if l had purchased an average length mat l think he would have found it too small.

    I will be returning to purchase more kit for him in the future.

    Sleeping mat seems very comfortable- have yet to use whilst camping. Bought for wild camping in Scotland to remove the worry of getting a puncture in my inflatable sleeping mat.

    As I will be multi-day back packing have cut 2 sections off to be used in the day as a sit mat and can then just put beneath feet during the night. Mat is bulky but hopefully will not be too annoying whilst walking and is lighter than the inflatable one. Also quite nice to sit on the folded up block whilst cooking as it can act like a low seat.

    I was looking for some XC leather gloves as I was getting a bit feed up of wearing ordinary fleece gloves out between thumb and palm. These were the only ones I found in the UK.

    Nice gloves well made and look like they could last a while. My only criticism is the sizes are on the small size. I have size 10 but they're still a bit small for me and these are the biggest they do. I'M hoping they'll stretch a bit but for the price you'd think they could make something that actually fitted.

    Now I have them the weather's turned wet and mild stripping away the snow cover up here in the Highlands. So, I don't know when I will actually get to try them out. Hopefully soon.

    Rab Hut Slipper Review
    SH
    Verified Buyer
    UK

    The Rab Hut slippers are a great bit of kit. They pack down relatively well - maybe not as small as very lightweight hut slippers / booties but the upside is that you get a fairly resilient sole and a strong material around the sides which is something worth considering.

    I would say the sizing is about right, possibly slightly on the small side. So for example if your feet are definitely size 10s, you may want to consider going up a size from the recommended large, but it's a close call. My feet are 9.5 and they are snug. I've got fairly wide feet and they work well.

    In terms of insulation they work pretty well and are pretty warm and of course synthetic so moisture less of an issue than down. Obviously in very cold environments you'd want something more and with more covering. These would work well as hut slippers, in a tent or even around the home!

    Silva Expedition 4 Compass Review

    My wife's trusty Silva Expedition compass got us both out of a tricky situation in Cross Fell two weeks ago. My Bruton universal compass which we use for Arctic ski touring lets us down badly. It was dark,windy and knee deep snow. So I took bearings with the Bruton on the stone pillars to the summit. Within 100m I realized we had a problem. When you took the bearing you drop the compass onto its lanyard..BUT the compass housing moved by between 4 to 6 degrees.

    Luckily my wife had her compass in her sack and for the next 90min we used it to safely navigate to a comfortable night at Gregs Hut.It's a simple reliable useable compass. Will be binning the Bruton.

    Fantastic service as usual from Facewest.

    I've worn this jacket pretty much every day since receiving it (5 weeks ago) and am very happy with it.It hasn't been tested in extreme temperatures but has been worn in anything from +8C to -3C.The insulation is top notch - I've never been too hot or too cold, always just right.The jacket is windproof and the hood is also fantastic when it is particularly windy.The hood is removable which is another plus point and removes some of the bulk when not required.It is close fitting, which is what I wanted and my initial concerns about the blue being too bright were soon put to rest - the colour is great and I also love the contrasting orange interior.

    My only criticism mirrors that of others - for a premium jacket, the zip is of relatively poor quality.This doesn't detract from the fact that this jacket is now always my first choice for dry, cold and breezy conditions.

    Arcteryx Thorium AR Hoody Review

    Excellent jacket, comes up a little short than my previous down jacket from Patagonia but the fit and warmth are on another level. Service from Facewest was second to none, next day delivery was met every time and a faultless returns and same day refund process when I needed to check my size. 5 stars, thank you.

    Nice Jacket the hood is helmet compatible (just) its warm and light, the fit is a bit on the big side (I think AR is marketing speak for will fit Americans) I'm 185cm & 90 Kg and have the XL, it fits well in the arms but the body is a bit oversized. The DWR is very good, but I have not washed the jacket yet.

    E04999 Petzl Headband - All styles Review

    Good replacement for the original headband on my Tikka Plus, although a pity the original design is no longer available. One bonus however was that I was able to devise a method of deploying the additional top strap supplied with the replacement, which did not feature on the original. Do take careful note of the route the strap takes through the various clips before removing the original though.

    Mammut Ultralight Removable Airbag 3.0 20L Review
    Paul

    Zurich

    I purchased this bag in after being caught in a small avalanche and have used this for regular lightweight touring (day trips only) as well as off piste / heli days over the last 3 years.I think I have the 2.0 model, not the present 3.0 model but I wouldn`t know the difference and recently I looked at the current model in the Mammut shop in Zurich and couldn`t spot the difference. Pls be aware I`ve never fired this in anger, so to speak, so I can`t speak to the airbag performance / protection.

    First of all I can say that paired with the carbon cartridge, this is incredibly light.I have mixed feeling about the overall package; for a seriously lightweight airbag this is the business.

    There is enough space in the bag for avi kit, spot/inreach, spare gloves, first aid kit and perhaps a spare gillet.The small padding at the back does a good job of giving some protection against uneven contents. The metal buckle for the waist/leg loop works incredibly well, even with the thickest gloves it is easy to attached with one hand I'm always impressed with this. On that topic, I would have preferred a larger clip for the chest strap. Ice Axe attachment and ski attachment is not the best - the attachment is based around a strap connected by a plastic clip (I think it broke within a month's use), which is just too flimsy.As a result, I carry skis and axe under the shoulder straps.

    Onthe topic of safety, the trigger/handle easily packs away, is in a good place on the left shoulder.The airbag itself it kept in place by some buckles internally (these seem to work well) and is kept away from the outside elements by a zip on the top of the bag, this zip is designed to open when the bag is triggered and is designed to stay closed in normal usage by a bit of Velcro (doesn't work, the zip opens every time, all the time not a problem, but still).

    The shovel is packed towards the rear of the bag inside, furthest from the entrance.The shovel handle and probe on the side, of the bag, opposite side to the canister.Accessing the contents of the bag is a phaff, its rear access only the good news is that the bag hook (similar to a coat hook) is large and you can secure the bag on the hill with a pole / axe whilst you get access to the bag.Given the access phaff, I almost always partner this bag with a waist bag for hydration/food. The material for the bag is super lightweight and not waterproof - you need to wrap anything you need to keep dry.

    Conclusion, for what it is designed for it does a great job.On days where you don`t need the weight saving, I have found it too much of a compromise.For example, if you need to test the snowpack, un-packing the shovel means removing everything and that is not ideal in mountain environments.I have recently purchased the Mammut Pro Protection 35l for more all round usage.

    Rab Womens Power Stretch Pro Pants Review

    I bought these because was I looking for an alternative to my usual Ronhills-plus-thermals that would be equally flexible and comfortable.A quick Google search overwhelmingly recommended this product. As I am between a 10/12, I ordered 12, but was surprised to find them slightly loose, so I returned them and ordered 10s which were a good fit. So if in doubt, size down.

    These leggings are extremely comfortable and warm, the fabric being of a good thickness and weight as you would expect for the price. The inside of the fabric is soft and fleecy and lovely to wear.So far I have only tested them on a short day out in The Malvern Hills, but it was a cold, persistently drizzly and very windy January day and I was impressed with how they performed. The drizzle did not seep into the fabric and my legs were always warm and cosy. I'm pretty sure that I have found a new favourite piece of kit!

    I was also impressed with the competitive pricing, prompt delivery and quick refund on the pair I returned.

    Mammut Barryvox Review

    A great transceiver

    Pros -

    • Very intuitive to use.
    • The transceiver guides you aurally and visually onto the sending unit.
    • Picks up a signal very quickly and a good range.
    • Whilst training with this transceiver I had a disproportionate number of first strikes with the probe compared to others using different brands of transceiver, this was even with transceivers buried up to 1.25m deep.

    Cons -

    • The harness initially appears great, but unfortunately the lanyard has a habit of getting in the way and preventing the security strap being fastened. not a deal breaker but it requires attention until it becomes habit.
    • The transceivers great range can cause problems, during transceiver training we noted that the barryvox would pick up signals that nobody else could. and on occasion it would pick up ghost signals (Possibly theremnants of signal from people in the group switching from send to search??).
    • The barrybox processors don't seem quite up to managing marked transceivers and searching for others. whilst conducting range checks marking checked transceivers would reduce the searching range to the point the third transceiver wasn't picked up. (I'm sure this is something that will be fixed in the next update.)

    Overall a good intuitive transceiver, its easy to use, aesthetically pleasing and above all works! it does have its faults, but doesn't everything!

    I'm really impressed by Vapour-rise Guide Jacket. It's warm and cool when more active. It's also very quick drying after rain and snow. Little bit of a heavy jacket but it is very durable. Top piece of gear and breathable. The hood and pockets need some improvement. I think it is outstanding.

    I purchased two pairs, one for me and one for my wife as we live in the Lake District and walk the fells in all seasons. The original idea was to have them for the snow and ice when crampons would be overkill. We had them in our rucksacks the other day when there was no snow or ice, however we were tackling a steep ascent and descent on wet grass. From experience we know that this type of terrain underfoot can easily leave you on your backside so we put our microspikes on. They were fantastic. They transformed our boots from family saloons into Landrovers. I can't recommend them highly enough. They will stay in our rucksacks all year round now that we realise their potential on wet surfaces as believe it or not, we sometimes get rain in the Lake District!

    This is a wonderfully light, warm jacket. Suits my husbands needs perfectly. Plenty of pockets and not bulky at all. When looking for a jacket he found so many that were overly large, but not this one. The fitting of the hood is excellent and does not move once in place. A good length even though he is tall, sleeves are a good fit. Perfect, could not have wished for more. Good price from Facewest and definitely worth buying.

    Reading

    The tube inside is made of glass :/

    I purchased mine for my Winter Mountain Leader assessment and it had a small bubble in it which stalled the ball bearing for a few seconds every time it had to enter/leave the bubble. I phone facewest up and they said all of them had bubbles. Over the last year the bubble got bigger and more annoying until rest of the liquid has disappeared so the ball is no longer damped and moves around rapidly. Being well out of the returns period I dismantled it. The tube inside is glass and it has a tiny crack where one end is glued into the base. I had expected plastic. Hardly back country proof, I'm less than impressed.

    Julbo Airflux Clear Review
    Anders
    Verified Buyer
    Longyearbyen, Svalbard

    I live in Svalbard where the weather sometimes can be pretty nasty and goggles are an essential part of my kit. I use them for downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and sometimes when I go out grocery shopping. The Airflux have mostly been with me on the glaciers in the dark season when the sun is below the horizon and tinted lenses are unnecessary.

    Plus:
    The materials feels like quality right out of the box. There seems to be little risk that the mechanism will break off accidentally. The double layer foam ensures a comfortable fit and it keeps snow and wind out. Over all it is a good idea to increase airflow when going up and I have not experienced any fogging when venting and working my way up to the top.

    Minus:
    They just won't close up before I start my descent or when the weather changes. The upper corners snaps right into place and stays there but the lower corners never snaps in. If I happen to be so lucky that I can get one in it immediately pops out when I start working on the other one. Working the corners is impossible when wearing gloves and I need to take the goggles off before doing anything. When they don't close wind comes in from the sides and when I don't need the extra ventilation it is annoying when moving slowly or standing still. In minus 20 and 45 knots of wind you do not want all of that coming in from the sides.

    I give them three stars for the fit, the idea of venting and the double layer foam. The last two stars have I spent on supergluing them closed.

    Very warm very light. packs up very small. less restrictive to arm movements than a garment with sleeves. very pleased with it. Not too bulky - I wear it over a thermal long sleeve base layer and a Paramo trail shirt, when I put my Gore-Tex jacket on top it does not feel tight. Sizing seems to be American rather than European. I am of heavy muscular build and the XL fits fine. If you are of thin build the sizing may be slightly too big so it may be best to order a size under.

    Arcteryx Therme Parka Review

    After being unsatisfied with two winter jackets which were promptly returned, I came across the brand Arc'teryx and specifically this Therme parka. I baulked at its cost as it was double compared to the two jackets. I tried looking for alternatives and kept coming back to this one after having tried one elsewhere. Upon trying it the first time, I understood why it was priced accordingly as the quality, details and features far surpassed the ones I've owned and tried!

    Facewest at the time were the only authorised Arc'teryx retailer to have my preferred colour/size and happily at the best price! I would also like to thank them for their fantastic packaging especially for putting another piece of cardboard in-between the outer packaging and the jacket preventing it from being cut by a utility knife (whilst opening the parcel).

I would also like to thank them for their fantastic packaging especially for putting another piece of cardboard in-between the outer packaging and the jacket preventing it from being cut by a utility knife (whilst opening the parcel).

    E13 Petzl Zoom AA Battery Adapter 4.5V Review
    Keith
    Verified Buyer
    Abergavenny

    Although a dated design I personally love the classic simplicity and rugged construction of the Petzl zoom. The only two things that let it down was lumens to bulk ratio and poor battery design. The first of these issues has been solved with a cree upgrade, and the battery issue has been improved ten fold with this simple snap in converter. Now I'm able to run it on three AA's, These being the most reliable, affordable and widely available of all the battery types. This is a superb upgrade and I can't recommend it enough. 10 out of 10 for whoever thought of this.

    Rab Nucleus Pull On Review

    Great, snug fitting fleece. Light enough to be worn as a mid layer but also thick enough for an outer layer if it's not too cold. A high quality item that looks good and is perfectly placed on the mountain or in the bar afterwards.

    Petzl Actik Core Review
    Andy
    Verified Buyer
    Southampton

    I found it hard doing some work in my flat one evening as the ceiling light wasn't good enough, I ordered a cheap head torch of amazon which don't get me wrong is bright but needs charging too often and only has 2 light settings, either the full 150 lumens or next setting to dim.

    So after some research and asking questions in shops I was advised of the Petzl Actik Core as I wanted that blue/white light as easier to use for a long time without aching your eyes when doing diy or in my garden in the eve with my wood burner and with more than 2 light settings and can last longer between charges. It's great, as with 3 light settings and 350 lumens it illuminates my whole garden so very happy with the product.

    Thank you facewest for getting it to me quickly.

    Wild Country Pure Chalk Ball Review
    Dr G
    Verified Buyer
    Leeds

    My climbing days are over but I still use pure chalk for calisthenics/gymnastics. Not caring for the liquid kind, I've had a lot of success with this Wild Country version - it's no different in my opinion to more expensive makes.

    Sure - all balls of chalk are pretty messy (keep it in a large plastic food bag & put your hands in the bag to squeeze/roll the ball around. When it's nearly finished, I cut it open & use the loose stuff inside.

    No clumping & good grip quality. Would definitely buy again.

    Arcteryx Atom SL Hoody Review
    Dr G
    Verified Buyer
    Leeds

    I'm giving this 5 stars but for me personally, it's probably only worth 4. Why? Because it's so light (SL version of three weights), it's also got minimal insulation; both keeping the weight & the bulk down. But for me, the extra 200g or so above a basic windshirt, doesn't really contribute the amount I thought it would to the heat aspect. What I mean is, it's only marginally warmer than an unlined windshirt, making it an unlikely choice in my lightweight travelling armoury, because for much less weight, I can get a very similar amount of warmth/wind protection.

    But if you're going to use it as a stand-alone item, it's still pretty good. It fits well in keeping with most of Arcteryx's garments (not like a sack, therefore!), has a decent water-repellent finish, is very windproof & provides some thermal insulation. Just don't rely on it for much warmth. For someone moving fast in cool conditions, I'd say it'd be a pretty good choice as it stretches where it needs to, has a couple of useful pockets & the drawstring hem is efficient.

    Small reflectives are a bonus, as is the hood.

    Rab Nimbus Jacket Review
    Dr G
    Verified Buyer
    Leeds

    I've had this jacket for several months now (the wet, wintery ones) & can honestly say it's the business. I've come from a strong background of down & feathers but having got wetted-out once too often in the murky drizzle of northern England (even with some decent, Goretex pro on my exterior), I thought a totally synthetic fill could be the answer to my problems.

    True, it's not as lightweight as down, nor does it pack down anywhere near as small, but these are minor considerations given that I'll be wearing it most of the time.

    On first try out, I was disappointed as I was on the cooler side of true warmth. But this is because I was comparing it weight-for-weight with down; which, to be fair, can typically be worn next to the skin. This Nimbus jacket, when coupled with a decent wool baselayer (Icebreakers are my personal choice) works brilliantly. No clumping or noticeable loss of insulation in damp weather, very decently warm, a droplet-shedding finish, with good arm length, a very practical hood, 2 decent-sized hand pockets & a sufficiently high-up inner Napoleon on the LHS (not clashing with the exterior hand pockets, that is).

    The zips haven't snagged yet & I'd definitely buy another in future. Definitely recommended.

    Arcteryx Atom LT Pant Review
    Dr G
    Verified Buyer
    Leeds

    These pants are pretty good but not perfect. Personally, I bought them for urban use. Specifically, for going to town or travelling to & from a social event without having to change my trousers from winters to summers! Buses are warm, being in the weather over winter isn't; venues are & so on. These over-trousers are highly wind-resistant, ditto water as well as being lined; having a full-length zip means no need to remove shoes to put on/take off as well. For this, they are perfect. Especially as the warmth isn't down-based, meaning there's no danger of it wetting-out.

    However, whilst they do have an internal pocket, they also have labels on the interior of the waistband, both front & rear which is kind of annoying. More so though, is the lack of a draw-string - the waist elastic is set at one tension so if you're wearing a bulky belt or change sizes much during the life of this garment, there's no scope for adjustment.

    These last two points clarify how these pants could be improved.

    But seriously, they're still very good, comfortable & quiet (minimal rustle). It's just for the price, they really could have done that little bit better...

    Mountain Equipment Ibex Pant Review

    I have run a campsite in Scotland for several years and the Mountain Equipment Ibex Pant trousers have become an essential clothes item for me. They look smart and function well as workwear, leisure wear, walking trousers and I even wear them in my canoe.

    I find the trousers comfortable, durable, well-made and well-fitting. They certainly stand up to a rough and tough lifestyle, lasting for years. They are quick drying and pack to a small size. I wear them in all but the hottest or coldest weather.

    Given the wear I get out of them, I consider them to be excellent value. Iwouldn't be without them.

    I usually wear size 7 gloves, I bought size small and they were way too big but I hadn't time to send them back and get a smaller pair so just used them anyway. I could hold onto ski poles ok. My hands stayed warm for the whole ski trip for the first time ever in 30years!!! I'd highly recommend these but be aware of sizing.

That was a great cushion but the cut away on the travel cushion improves comfort no end. A long flight gave it a good test, which it passed with flying colours. Wholeheartedly recommended.

    Two of these in regular every night use inside the house for 9 and 6 months now. Use them every night as a regular mattress with a thin mattress topper.

    Only little improvement wish would be to have some sort of handle on the long sides, since the mattress is very slippery to handle when inflated.

    I was unsure of how this would be when I bought it. Having worn it a few times I will admit it's just about right for regulating body temperature. When I'm wearing it I seems to be just right. It does seem to be a Goldilocks in the fleece world. I guess that's why it's got so many good reviews as the go to fleece layer.To be honest I can't really complain about it.

    Yes, it's expensive but sometimes quality is worth the price you pay.I'd rather have 1 item that is expensive & right than 10 that are not, something to which I have learned a lesson with myself.

    As to facewest. Reliable & quick delivery. I have already used them more than once.

    I already had a petzl aktic headtorch and it's excellent. I realised the core battery would be a good idea - no more dead batteries to dispose of, better performance and a weight saving too.

    The core is nice and neat, easy to charge with wee green and red lights to tell you what the charge status is. The usb seems to be the same as other USB - mini usb cables so not specific to the battery, a good detail if you manage to mislay it.

    This is a genuinely brilliant pot with an ingenious handle design. Sea to Summit always produce brilliant products and they've done the same again here.

    Brilliant knife. I've been using the smaller MSR knife for a few years and have been pleased with that. Made sense to get this for when we're staying longer in one location.

    Brilliant product! Nobody should be using disposable straws these days. These are great for the home as well as being a fun extra to bring on a trek.

    Leatherman Squirt PS4 Review

    Purchased a Leatherman pocket tool as a gift. (I’ve owned an earlier version for many years). The reason I chose Facewest was because they were able to engrave the Leatherman Squirt in-house, with no extra delay. The package arrived on time, the engraving is excellent, the newer version of the Squirt is as well made and finished as my 14 year old version. The recipient was delighted with their gift and I would certainly use Facewest again.

    Black Diamond Z Pole Snow Baskets Review

    Portree

    FOR Z POLES 2018 AND LATER!

    These only fit on the latest Z Poles with the lip just above the original fixed basket. They do not fit onto the earlier models. Even then, at 60mm, they are hardly 'snow baskets', which are normally about 95mm. Thus they are only 10mm wider than the standard 3-season basket on BD and Leki poles.

    I could save them and use them on a pair of BD Z Poles in future but as my poles are seized (a common problem), I won't be buying BD poles ever again. Waste of time and money...

    Suunto Ambit and Ambit 2 strap. Review

    Replacement strap seems fine but low score given as;

    • 1/ It shouldnt need replaced if a decent product in the first place
    • 2/ Very expensive
    • 3/ Torx tool not supplied to replace it so you have to buy one or get a jeweller to fit it!

    Excellent service from Facewest, so score is solely for Suunto.
