Winter 2016 Staff Picks

Image for article Winter 2016 Staff Picks

What’s new for the winter season? Here’s a selection of items that our staff are particularly excited about…

Patagonia Nano Air Hoody - Mark Wright

If you run cold, but walk fast, finding insulation that keeps you warm but not overheated during aerobic activity can be a big ask. Thankfully Patagonia have the solution with their Nano Air - keep it on all day, right throughout your stop/start activities. Warm, stretchy and breathable. (available for women too)

Haglofs Women’s Clay Pant - Carol Suddaby

I used to be quite tough in my younger days and could get by with minimal clothing in winter. Now I’m a bit of a softy and feel the cold, so the Haglofs Clay pants with their soft and fluffy insides, are quite simply, heaven to wear. A great fit, tough fabric, and they’re SO soft and warm inside.

Kahtoola Microspikes - Helena Whone

When the snow starts falling, Microspikes are invaluable. Lightweight, easy to put on and a real confidence booster! I am not a winter mountaineer by any stretch of the imagination, but I really enjoy going out walking in the winter. Anyone venturing out in wintry conditions should invest; absolutely money well spent.

GSI Outdoor Glacier Stainless 0.5L Flask - Paul Cheshire

I bought one of these to replace my old Salewa flask, and I’ve been impressed with the performance. Keeps a drink hot for hours, even later in the day when only half-full. The shape is efficient in a rucksack, flutes in the side make it easy to hold even with gloves on, and the eye-catching colours are great.
