Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you 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…
