I’ve been using this through the winter and spring and it’s time to talk about it. This is the Arc’teryx Alpha AR jacket. The AR bit stands for All Round, which is a concept I like. I don’t want to have different jackets for different activities, I’d…

Women's underwear!

Well that title might result in some more traffic from Google. This is a kind of review and gear diary all rolled into one. I asked Kirsty if she fancied modelling these for the review, but I was politely declined. Oh well, it seems I shall never…

I asked Kirsty if she fancied modelling these for the review, but I was politely declined. Oh well, it seems I shall never diversify into photographing women in their underwear. Probably for the …

I thought that three day old pancakes fell squarely into the daddy leftovers disposal zone. I was so wrong. I got home to stern note from the 6 year old food monitor. The wee frowny face is what won it for me. Suitably chastised.

I managed to land one of these pre-launch and have been using it for 3 seasons. This was the MSR Windboiler when it arrived and is now the MSR Windburner. Regulars here will know that I love the MSR Reactor. It’s the most weather resistant and speedy…

Gear diary: Womens special

Time for the gear diary to cover something other than what I’ve been using. Kirsty’s been using a fair bit of kit during her training and now she’s fully qualified as a Pilates teacher, I thought it was time to pick out a few things that can work as both…
