I enjoy camping. But sleeping is something I struggle with, both at home and away. Under a tent, I’m often finding that physical discomfort is a concern for me and I’ll often wake up in some pain or struggle to relax in to a position from which I can drift off.
Very recently, I purchased an inflatable camping mat and I’d like to share my initial thoughts.
Several weeks ago, I ordered two pairs of waterproof trousers, in the hope of finding the right size in a style that I felt would be appealing to me. This mode, the Vaude Lierne Full-Zip ‘Pants’, was not available to try on in-store and so, I had to take the plunge and order online.
I ended up returning both pairs and I’ll explain why further down. In this post, I’d like to share some of the features of these waterproof trousers as there is limited information available online and product reviews were scarce, as far as I could see.
it’s been more than a month now, since I purchased the Lowe Alpine Aeon 27 backpack. Some may say I have too many backpacks (and, this may be true…) but I was keen on this purchase due to its low weight and I saw it as an ideal accessory for summer hiking when I may not need all of those extra thermal layers.
One month on, I’d like to share my impressions so far.
I felt it might be interesting and beneficial to write about and share how I wrap up for winter walking, now that we’re well in to the darkest season in the Northern Hemisphere.
I’d like to emphasise the fact that I am mostly a hillwalker, hiking around the south-west and west of England and that, at this time of year especially, I will rarely climb higher than 600m above sea level.
