About this blog

I’m a gear geek. I love using well designed tools and equipment to help me enjoy and occasionally survive the things I do for fun (up to Type 2 fun). 

You’ll see a mix of kit, from fast and light alpine mountaineering to military kit and a lot in between. It should be surprising to see how often the best kit applies to lots of different activities.


When trying to track down a more elegant or better value bit of kit, I’ve become more and more frustrated with online reviews. Because I’ve ended up with a good amount of my own kit, I thought I might as well see for myself how difficult it is to write good reviews and so with that challenge ahead, here’s my gear review blog.

Plenty of kit on show here. Shame about the facial expression. DPS skis, Scarpa F1 boots, Norrona bibs and jacket, Arc’teryx gloves, Mammut airbag. Cliche Oakley goggles and Sweet carbon helmet on top. Fuji XT-10 dangling around my neck.
