Ultimate Direction Jurek FKT Vest review

I can't seem to walk through a camping/hiking/running shop without being magnetically drawn to the bag section. I have to dream up specific occasions to convince my partner that I need a new pack because there will be a time when a 12-litre bag is too much, but a 6-litre is too small. It's safe to say I'm on the constant quest for the "perfect" bag so without further ado, here’s my thoughts on the Ultimate Direction Jurek FKT Vest.

PHD Minim 400 K Series Sleeping Bag review

An expensive but, at some point, useful outlay for ultra and marathon runners is a lightweight sleeping bag. It might be an essential kit list item for a multi-day race or something you plan to use on overnights during longer training runs. It needs to be light so that is can be easily carried in a rucksack, but it also needs to be warm so that you can sleep well.
