Another Christmas present thread
Mrs P and I like tootling around the Lake District, but she steadfastly refuses to update her kit. It's like carry on camping.
She recently wore my boots and was impressed, so I think it might be the right time to introduce her to some more modern gear.
Can anyone suggest a nice pair of light trousers and some waterproof ones for when its really wet? A good stowaway jacket, etc.
Noted thank you, never been in there.
Craghoppers have a sale on - http://www.craghoppers.com/buy/sale/womens-sale/?DisplayProductList=true
I've a couple of pairs of their winter lined trousers - man they're good ! I wore them in arctic scotland last new year and walking up Ben Nevis in August - they worked perfectly and kept me warm.
As to overtrousers - I just use a cheap pair - they were perfect in a sodden Scottish August again.
Have craghoppers, they are really good and dry out very quickly and are crumple resistant.
Do you have a Cotswold near you?
We all know what happened to Babs Windsor's top in Carry on Camping, Puffy.....
Keela scuffer trousers
Check out paramo too
+1 for craghopper trousers, they are light, dry quick and have just enough stretch for getting over styles etc without hvaing to hitch them up, (tk maxx have LOADS in all over the country at great prices btw)
as far as boots, i have some scarpa boots for the serious stuff (mountains) and some slamons for regular treks and hiking.
I went to Cheshire Oaks, no trousers in the required size at North Face, I went next door to Columbia and ended up buying boots.
Then I went to Cotswold and saw some Sprayway trousers funnily enough but I am looking online too now; I can't find the Craghopper winter lined trousers in store anywhere.
field and trek I think were selling them.they are always cheap because they are the same conpany as sports direct.so whilst great prices don't expect great customer service
field and trek is just the same as sports direct..............great if you know what you want...just don't ask for advice..............the Montane atomic DT stuff was half price this time last year ... a real bargain for some quality kit.............
