3 season trekking bootThe Lowa Camino GTX boot falls into Lowa's "Index 3" category of boots which are defined as being suitable for long treks and mountain tours. Therefore the Camino will provide good performance for demanding trekking abroad and mountain ground in the UK. It's easy to see why when you try the boots - the flex is moderate to firm but not too stiff and there is a good lateral support also. There is generous padding at the ankle beneath the nubuk leather upper so the foot feels well held in place. The Camino GTX has a tall cuff which provides more protection than lower cut boots and also lessens the chance of stones etc entering the boot. There is a rubber toe cap to provide protection also.
The Bridgedale Hike Midweight Comfort Sock is a comfortable midweight sock designed for all year backpacking, trekking and hiking. Designed to offer day-long protection and comfort, the Trekker sock provides thermal and moisture control thanks to the use of Merino Wool. Merino Wool provides excellent insulation and next to skin comfort.
Designed to be worn for comfort, additional warmth and long distant trail practicality these Liners with Coolmax® will help to keep your feet dry and protected. Worn next to the skin, these liners transport moisture quickly away from the skin out to the main sock where it can evaporate keeping feet dry and comfortable.
The Hydrobloc proofing cream has been specifically formulated for full-grain leathers but will also be fine for nubuck leather also. This will improve the water resistance of the leather, which is essential for boots that do not have a gortex membrane, but also desirable for all leather products as it is important to keep leather in good condition to prevent drying out and cracking.
The voyager is a good all round pole at a great price. It misses out on some of the top end features of Leki's premium poles but still does the job! For general hill walking and rambling this is a good choice. It uses a comfortable soft grip but does not have a rounded top. The leashes are basic but adjustable and the locking mechanism is simpler than the Superlock Sytstem and can unlock by accident a little easier as it only locks when fully tight.
The Leki Micro Vario Carbon is a unisex pole with 4 carbon pole sections, quick Speedlock2 adjustment and aergon handle top. The main distinguishing feature is that this is a foldable pole which packs down to 40cm and that all the sections are carbon fibre in order to retain a lightweight offering.
