Davy Wright

Most at home in the outdoors, preferably on top of something big and pointy. Scotland is Davy's playground, which is why he doesn’t mind getting wet. But winter is where it’s at. Hiking, scrambling, camping and a bit of climbing when I can. Sucker for a ridge. At a lower altitude he try getting out on his bike and run if he has to.

Davy describes himself as "a bit of a gear geek, maybe less of the bit. I like to see how things work or don’t!" In following this line Davy has become a respected and authoritative blogger over the last few years, working with many of the UK's major manufacturers and retailers.

Preferred activities: Hillwalking, camping, scrambling, trying to get better at climbing/ice climbing, cycling/mountain biking

Areas commonly visited: Lochaber, Cairngorms, Lake District

I have a huge attraction to watches, the usual "go to's" for outdoorsy people have compasses, barometers and even maybe a GPS.

Missing In Action

It's been some time since I have put something meaningful on My Outdoors. There has been a couple of reviews but these have been posted as I felt guilty that I haven't got any reviews published of the kit that has been so kindly sent to me by PR companies and brands.

Berghaus Ramche Micro: Tested & Reviewed

The Extrem range from Berghaus is designed for exactly that: Extreme conditions. At My Outdoors we have already reviewed the Fastpacking Extrem jacket and the Extrem 7000 hoody, both have performed admirably.

Cumulus is a Polish brand that have produced down products for best part of 30 years. They don’t say much about their products, they let their products do the talking. I was glad to get a hold of the Panyam 450. Cumulus’s spec and description, below, pitches it as a mild winter, late autumn, early spring bag. The 450 has a big brother in the series, the 600 which would push you deeper into winter I would imagine.

Climbing charity, Urban Uprising, fund climbing and educational programmes that assist young at risk and disadvantaged kids to get access to climbing. In the hope that it will give them structure and other life skills they may not have had the chance to develop otherwise.
