Outdoor Discoveries

It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.

A jacket has arrived…

11th September 2006

…but it's the wrong one. The label was one give away: it says Latok Alpine, not Latok! However, a few other things confirmed my suspicions: it has two external pockets rather than four and the closure is single-zipped rather than double-zipped. I emailed The Outdoor Shop to see what they have to say about it and, to their credit, they have agreed with me. Now I have got to send back a jacket that that is a good fit and very lightweight in exchange for something that definitely includes winter use among its capabilities. While I reckon that the Latok Alpine appears a good product and wouldn't mind giving it a try, I suppose that I better get what I ordered. OUTDOORSmagic.com reports that the 2006/7 Rab range is coming out so I might even get one of those. Tower Ridge seems to have some already! It's back to waiting again, I suppose.

    The new range from RAB looks good. Time will tell if it is. Give Ricky a call at Tower Ridge and I am sure he will get what you are looking for at a good price.
