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!

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.
