Review: Salomon Exit Aero

  These are another pair of shoes/boots sent to me for review as part of the “Reviews for Shoes” program at Fitness Footwear. I thought it worth mentioning that up front as it were. I did tell the guys looking after the process that I wouldn’t give a good review...

Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX #2

This is a follow-up report of the Inov-8 boots I’ve been testing for Fitness Footwear. The Roclite 390GTX is a waterproof mid cut boot from the people who brought us the ultimate in lightweight footwear, Inov-8. If last weeks walk over the gritstone of Kinder was no test at all...

Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX

I’ve been dying to try a pair of these, ever since they were released a year or two ago, but until the kind folk at FitnessFootwear offered to let me have a pair to test I’d not really had the opportunity. Boots aren’t normally something you can try on whim...

Review: Trailblazer Coast to Coast Guide 4th Ed

Just in time for the 2010 walking season (due in mid-April and priced at £11.99) the Trailblazer guide book for the Coast to Coast is about to be released in its 4th Edition. You may remember that after reviewing the 2nd Edition of this guide book I basically said it...

Memory Map on the iPhone – continued..

Although I’ve made a couple of approaches to Memory Map now to try and get some sort of discount for existing and loyal customers of the product – for the iPhone app, I’ve been told that there are no plans to discount the product and the senior members of the...

Memory Map map converter

I know at least one person who is still using MM v2004 because of the amount of money they invested in maps for the product and refuse to pay again to use the maps in the latest version of the product. Anyone who uses Memory Map will know that this...

Memory Map on iPhone

It’s finally here, the iPhone app from Memory Map. See here. They’ve kept the launch fairly quiet though – I subscribe to their newsletter and I was expecting advance warning of the posting of the app in the App Store, but no I had to trip over the release as...

Review: Rucksack Reader Coast to Coast Guide

The Coast to Coast guide book market is never going to be an easy market to penetrate, not only are there several guide books already available for Britain’s premier long distance path, but the benchmark is already very high – set, in my opinion at least, by Henry Stedman’s (Trailblazer)...

Anquet Mapping Discount Code

Anquet, one of the leading digital mapping companies contacted me today with a similar offer to the one I announced the other day – they have provided me with a dedicated discount code for their mapping products, to be used at the on-line checkout. The code gives you 15% off...

Quo Mapping Discount Code

I really don’t like adverts, not on my TV, not on the radio I listen to and certainly not on any website I have any control over. I will never – and that is an unequivocal NEVER – open any of my websites up to commercial advertising. I’ve turned down...

An iPhone beater?

I know there are many iPhone users in the outdoors blogging community, myself included. The iPhone has its faults, but so far it’s been the most complete and flexible package when it comes to writing, creating and publishing blogs on the move. There is a new device in town now...

New Boots (but not panties!)

Apologies to any non “Dury-aware” readers, but coming up with attention grabbing titles isn’t easy and that one was a little too good not to use. Another rush of blood to the head yesterday morning and I found myself £79.99 lighter in the bank balance, but very much in credit...
