Going away for Easter or staying at home to avoid the rain and snow, whichever it is it's worth having a look at our latest arrivals.

First up is the new Pembroke North climbing guide from the Climbers Club which is in stock right now.

Arcteryx have a number of new pieces in for spring including Gamma LT Hoody softshells for men and women, Atom LT Hoody for women, Grifter Pants for men, Parapet Shorts and Capris and Rana Pants for women and the Blade 24 rucksack. We also have new colours in Arcteryx Phase AR base layers for men and women, Alpha SL Hybrid Jacket for men, Beta AR Jacket for women and Cierzo 25 rucksacks.

 

I've already mentioned Montane and Grivel rucksack ranges in previous blogs, but neglected to mention Lowe Alpine and what a mistake to make, there are some cracking products particularly the new range of Airzone rucksacks for walkers. At the smaller capacity end of things the Airzone Z 20 and Airzone Z ND 18 are zip opening packs that use a refined Lowe Alpine Airzone backsystem to give a well ventilated comfy carry. In the larger Airzone ND 24 and ND 32 (womens fit packs) and Airzone 25 and 35 a more conventional flip top lid is encountered. We also have a number of ultralight rucksacks from Salewa that pack into a stuff bag about the size of an orange and weight next to nothing called the Vector UL15 and 22 Backpacks.

 

 

Wild Country Tents have brought out 3 new models that we are big fans of: for lighter weight backpacking or eventists on a budget the Zephyros Lite 1 and 2 are cracking takes on the Terra Nova Laser range but with slightly less cutting edge fabrics and significantly less state of the art prices (between £150 and £200). For Duke of Edinburgh and Outdoor Centre use we really like the Hoolie 2 and 3 as tunnel tents and the Trisar 2 for more mountainous use.

Salewa MTN Trainer GTX In footwear check out the brand new Keen Bryce Mid WP Wmns mid walking boot for ladies and the Salewa Ms Mtn Trainer GTX which is awesome for walking, scrambling and Via Ferrata. Finally there has been a revamp of the popular Inov8 Roclite 295 fell running shoe.
