Gear Reviews

The gear reviews that will appear here will be for those that have donated equipment towards the The Snow Leopard Award Expedition and preparation. Starting in May, all reviews will include video and stills plus a features and benefits matrix.

The Vango review was requested  by OutdoorMegastore who have very generously  donated the tent.

All  reviews will be ongoing and are hopefully useable and useable. OK lets get going. We have some reviews coming up in the next few weeks so please call back to see review and new format.

Ribz Front Pack

It’s been a pleasure to review this piece of kit, its kinda like Batmans utility belt. It’s both useful and useable which makes it one of those items of equipment you will use so often that you will wonder what and how you managed before. As I didn’t manage to break, lose or do anything worse. It’s a front pack that works, well done Ribz for putting together the Ribz FrontPack!!

Berghaus Tyree Jacket

I have to say this jacket has proved to be a most capable jacket that punches far above its weight(no pun intended). As its described as a lightweight multipurpose activity jacket, made from microlight Pertex.
