Walking with Dogs

With more than a few column inches in the blogosphere this month being devoted to the subject of walking with dogs (Andy, John, WD), Ali and I borrowed a Jack Russell (“Gadget”) for a test drive.

A pleasant lunchtime stroll through the local footpaths of Hampshire led us through fields of golden oil seed rape and into woods carpeted with bluebells.

Wildthings Icesac with bullet pocket

I was pleased with my new Wildthings climbing pack when trying it out for the first time in North Wales.

Particularly satisfying is the ingenious new configuration for securely carrying ice tools that protects the pick and the large front zipped pocket. Designed for climbers by climbers and hand made in New Hampshire this sack has the trade off between weight and durability just right for multi-day alpine routes.

Other notable features include - Composite VX-21 fabric (200 p.s.i. waterproof); 2 gear loops on padded, removable hip belt; compression straps; whistle-lock on sternum strap; hydration system compatible; crampon / essentials pocket; 2 haul points; contour-cut removable lid; roll up snow skirt.
Volume: 52 litres; Weight: 1.3kg
