La Sportiva Solution Comp


Is it the 'next Solution'? Or something entirely different? Turns out, it's probably partway inbetween. The Solution Comp uses the same toebox as the popular La Sportiva Solution climbing shoe. But the Solution Comp has a different heel, plus a few other tweaks. The result? Find out in Will's review, which he's written up after four months of wearing this shoe at the gym and at the crag.

It's Back

Mont Tempest Rain Jacket

Many a heart broke when Mont announced the retirement of its enduring classic, the Mont Tempest Rain Jacket. Built for brutal Australian conditions, this jacket was the one bushwalking jacket to rule them all.

You can stop crying yourself to sleep: the Tempest is back! In a unisex design and a new colour, the Tempest is essentially the same as the old favourite. If you've missed it, best get it now, before the minds at Mont take it away again! ;)

New Trail Shoe

Salomon Ultra Glide

There's a new shoe in Salomon's trail running line up, and it's called the Ultra Glide.

As its name implies, the Ultra Glide is ultra comfortable, ultra light, and the ride is glide-like thanks to the smooth rocker.

For a trail shoe, the Ultra Glide is fairly cushioned, which makes it a good option for both occasional runners and those wanting a comfort shoe.

For more specifications, check the Ultra Glide out here >>
