We tested out the new Avalon GTX from Asolo whilst out on a night shoot up the Langdale valley in the English Lake District.

Gaynor Sports of Ambleside teamed up with Mammut to tackle this classic grade 1 scramble up Blencathra in the Lake District. Scrambling is dangerous and should only be tackled by those with the skill and confidence to tackle such routes. We were testing the Pacific Crest Boot, the Crater Jacket, and the Bask Pant Trouser. The route is one of the most popular scrambles with walkers in the area, and offers great views of a popular mountain.

There are loads of models of approach and trail shoes out there, so how do you know which one is right for your purpose. We take a little look at some of the features to look out for when selecting outdoor footwear, including why you would want a waterproof lining.

Gaynor Sports and Mammut got together to walk this route up Castle Crag in the English Lake District. It is a short walk, ideal for tired legs, or an afternoon stroll, and packs in a lot for its size.
