Jamie's Adventure Kit List
Jamie Ramsay's top kit picks from his microadventure in the Lake District.
Rab Cirrus Flex Insulated Jacket, Ink
“I love this jacket. It’s great to have stuffed in your bag during the day for any stops or pub visits, but also ideal for when you get back and want to keep warm! This is my dream insulated jacket.”
Meindl Men’s Ontario GTX Boots, Red/Anthracite
“I hadn’t worn these shoes before but found them very comfortable for hiking; they’ve got a nice grip which meant I was able to break into a jog on the descents. The GTX layer is great at keeping feet dry on a damp day too.”
JetBoil Flash 2.0 Carbon Black
“A great piece of kit to have and store in your bag if you’re going to be out on the mountain for a couple of days. Boiled water far quicker than I thought considering the wind and the temperature. A little big for fast hiking or running but perfect for trekking and hiking.”
Mountain Equipment Trembler Jacket
“The Trembler jacket surprised me. I wasn’t too sure what to make of it when I first put it on but found it very versatile when on the mountain. It worked really well as a mid-layer; I like to use lots of layering when I’m hiking so this was perfect for me.”
Mountain Equipment Lightline Jacket
“The Lightline jacket was awesome on the colder days. After going for a quick dip, it was great to help warm me up again. I also love that it comes with its own little bag for storage.”
