Khatoola Microspikes

Khatoola Microspikes In a word... Amazing! I had thought about getting some of these for a while now and I'm glad I did. After a day walking up Bow Fell with the path being nothing but sheet ice turning to snow around the 650m mark these really came into their own. I was walking on ice as if it were perfectly dry pavement, while my friend fell over... well I stopped counting after about 5. If you are thinking of getting some don't think, just buy them! they give you a lot more confidence when walking in conditions where full crampons aren't needed but just boots alone won't cut it. They are very easy to put on and take off and take up very little space or weight.
If I had to scrutinize them in anyway, I would maybe say they could do with a bit more protection on the rubber rand, but other walkers that commented on them (also wearers) said theirs have been fine, but your mileage may vary.

Trek N Eat Food

Trek N Eat Food On a recent trekking trip I tried out the Trek N Eat meals. I varied the main meals for 6 days and they are quick, convenient and TASTY.

Tamarack kindly sourced me the rice pudding from the same range (not listed on the website at the time) so my evening main meal and pud gave me 1000+ calories... if you can eat it all !!!

Add the excellent Adventure Foods Expedition Breakfast and that gives a base of 1600+ calories a day for about 450g weight.

It also meant I needed only a GSI Halulite Mnimalist pot to boil water and a long Optimus spatula (to eat from the pouch) as my kitchen equipment... fantastic

Exped SIM comfort 10 LW Review

I've just spent a long weekend sleeping on this selfinflating matress, comfort is the name of the game here with 100mm or 4 "of air and foam underneath you. Any hard ground or cold can't be felt throughthe mat meaning no more sleepless nights.
