PHD are leaders in the field for making excellent weight-to-warmth ratio sleeping bags and sleeping systems. How much warmth you need at night is a personal thing although some races do specify a minimum weight/specification.

Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ pole review

By Alice Morrison

If I did it again, I’d take poles,” were Gavin Barrett’s words as he finished the Everest Trail Race, a 6 day stage ultra in the Himalaya. I certainly wouldn’t have liked to attempt it without them. In a mountain ultra, poles can help with everything from speed to stability.

PHD Ready Made Wafer Down K Series trousers review

By Alice Morrison

I had often heard of the mythical down trouser, a piece of kit so magical that it could save you from freezing your ass-ets off at even the lowest temperatures, so imagine my delight when the opportunity to try out a pair in suitably chilly (-10ºC) conditions arose.

By Alice Morrison

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.
