The Fort William Mountain Festival 2019 programme has been announced today (06-12-18), with a superb line-up of inspiring presentations, adrenaline filled and thought-provoking world-class film screenings, mountain skills workshops and exhibitions, all staged in and around the bustling Highland town of Fort William, at the heart of the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 February 2019.

Recent events in Germany, where there have been examples of outdoor companies being attacked on social media for stating clearly that discrimination and intolerance have no place in our modern society, have led us to publish a statement on behalf of all members of the European Outdoor Group (EOG).

These arrived in a bundle from Decathlon UK with a range of other gear to kit me out from head to toe for less than £150. I was intending to test them as a full package, but as I was only 3 weeks out from the biggest race of my year (Glencoe Skyline) I was too nervous of risking injury by wearing something I wasn’t familiar with. I’m a bit precious about my feet, but with the big races of the year nicely out of the way it was time to try these out.

Polartec have announced Polartec® Power Air™, the first fabric technology engineered to reduce fibre shedding.  By encapsulating lofted fibres within a multilayer, continuous yarn fabric construction, this revolutionary new platform offers advanced thermal efficiency that is proven to shed five times less than other premium ‘mid-layer’ weight fabrics.

To celebrate 30 years of the iconic California campervan, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has released a travel guide featuring the 30 best places to visit in the UK as voted for by passionate owners.

The organisers of Keswick Mountain Festival (KMF) will open entries later today for the 2019 sports programme, with new events and special early bird prices for anyone who books a place by 31 December.

The winners and runners-up of the 2018 Kendal Mountain Festival, presented by Osprey and supported by the University of Cumbria have today been revealed.

The It’s Great Out There Coalition has announced details of its latest collaboration, with HorizonSports.tv, the world’s only nature sports and wellness video platform.

Gareth Pierce was a long-standing CEO of the WJEC awarding body, whose main activities served schools and colleges in Wales and England. He has been a member of BMC affiliated club, Clwb Mynydda Cymru for many years.

PrimaLoft, Inc. has announced it will expand biodegradable* technologies with the introduction of PrimaLoft® Bio™ Performance Fabric, the first 100% recycled, biodegradable synthetic fabric.
