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.

The right jacket has arrived at long last

8th November 2006

After a wait of several months, I have finally taken delivery of the Rab Latok that I ordered in August. A Latok Alpine turned up in September but that had to go back. Having heard nothing since, I sent an email last week (admittedly, being busy at work delayed this) that seemed to get the ball rolling. Compared to the Latok Alpine (a very nice jacket that really had me tempted), the cut is definitely longer and I also wonder about the fit being closer (a good design for a cold day). I find the sleeves are a little long without being unmanageably so. Now, all that remains is for me to try the jacket out on the hill and that opportunity may arise this coming weekend. I’ll see how it goes…
