The Ultimate Kit Guide - Packing for a Mountain Stage Race

By Alice Morrison

I know that is a big claim in the title there and I am immediately going to caveat it with the provisos that every runner and every race are different, but what I am aiming to do is give a comprehensive list of what you might need on a mountain stage race.

Rab Microlight Summit Jacket Review

By Alice Morrison

When you need a really warm, light layer to put on after a run, or during if you are in extremely cold conditions, nothing beats a down jacket. They represent instant warmth and can make all the difference to your overall state when you need to keep your core temperature up.

Rab Mythic 200 Sleeping Bag Review

By Luke Jarmey

When you carry a sleeping bag as a runner, you want it to be light… and I mean really light. However, as our multi day trail runs often take place in rather inhospitable environments, be it mountain, desert or just blooming wet n’ windy UK moorland, it’s critical that the warmth of the sleeping bag is sufficient for the climate in question.

Women’s BaseLayer Review

Base layers are great under another layer for winter and on their own for a brisk spring morning. I tried out three of the best and then Fiona Outdoors tried out a fourth. All performed well on the trails.

Rab Flashpoint Jacket review

Ultra-lightweight waterproof shells are definitely at the sexier end of running products. Why is this? Well, it’s kinda strange really, as it is something you don’t necessarily wear that often. But with a large portion of our running taking place on remote trails, within the turmoil of inclement weather systems, it often pays to be prepared.

Rab Xenon X Vest and Icebreaker Helix Vest review – a tale of two gilets

I started wearing gilets for cycling as I found that that extra insulation for my chest and back was invaluable during long, cold days in the saddle. I hadn’t worn them for running before, but this Autumn has given me the perfect opportunity to test drive a couple and I have to say that I have been impressed.
