Jessie is a regular contributor to My Outdoors from the snowfields of Iceland to a first 4000m alpine summit. 

The Eagle Creek Cargo hauler is the bag you wished was almost THE *perfect* travel holdall bag.

Tested by Jessie Leong just below 4000m in the Fann Mountains of Tajikistan, the Rab Ionosphere 5.5 sleeping mat proved to be a reliable mat for alpine through hiking and mountaineering adventures.

The reasons why you might want to get a Salewa ice screw are mainly for convenience, quickness and having something that integrates the protection and the quickdraw in one, with a holder that doesn’t expose the sharp end of the ice screw and potentially wreck all your nice expensive winter climbing clothes.

What would it be like to travel across from one side of Switzerland and reach a conference a few days later, rolling into the end destination on a foot and on e-bike?

The Dolomite Women's Crodarossa Hi GTX approach shoes are aimed at use on technical steep ground – but how would they fare being tested on boggy approaches and climbing on rocky slabs?

Exped Serac 35l pack tested and reviewed

Carrying a laptop, a climbing rack, a DSLR camera, spare layers, and my lunch – just some of the things that has seen my EXPED 35L Serac bag get used and abused in the past few months.

‘I’m coming up… so you better get this party started….’ Combining paragliding, sea kayaking, high ropes and a breathtaking cable car and train ride to the Eiger as part of Jessie Leong's unexpected journey through Interlaken, in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland

Forget travel faff. No valley is too far, nor too steep or too remote if you’re travelling in Switzerland - using the swiss travel pass on the ‘Schweizerischen Bundesbahnen’ (SBB) trains or the bright yellow Postal bus which connects the significant villages of Saas Fee to Visp on the train line.

The phone rang. ‘Jessie, it’s Dave… how would you feel about heading back out to Switzerland at short notice?’

Lightweight, durable, and perfect grip on rock – could this be the technical boot we’ve all been waiting for?
