Independent Gear Reviews

Claire Maxted, Wild Ginger Running★★★★★

"The race vests and Helvellyn poles have won our Best Value Award!"

Loyd Purvis, Run4Adventure★★★★★

"Wow, I really was impressed with all the kit we tested in the Ultra bundle."

Ronnie Staton, Hobo Pace★★★★★

"The Kinder 10L felt as good to me as any other vest I've ever worn, but it's by far the best value."

Keri Wallace, Girls on Hills★★★★★

"The Curbar 5L is excellent value for money - sturdy and practical, and evidently designed by trail runners."

Dave Taylor, Fell Running Guide★★★★★

"Another fantastic value for money vest, offers more features than some of the vests from the bigger brands and I would happily recommend it."

Gary House, RunStrong★★★★★

I found the Helvellyn Poles strong, reliable and light. I’d happily recommend them.

Fiona Outdoors★★★★★

"There is a lot to recommend. I choose the Kinder 10L when heading off for longer trail runs."

Georgia Tindley★★★★★

"Absolutely loved the Curbar, the fit is great because the XS is actually small!"

Ginger Al★★★★★

"I see Harrier competing in the big leagues in the future."
