Arcteryx Cerium LT Hoody tested and reviewed

New 2017 Osprey Talon 22 tested and reviewed

Osprey's legendary multi-discipline Talon 22 has had a bit of a tweal for 2017, building on the reputation of one of the most versatile small capacity packs on the market.

The Haglofs Vertigo II is the company's latest attempt to fill that awkward crossover point between trail walking and scrambling; the approach shoe
