First off, there’s a huge picture (if you click on it) of my arse right here on LFTO. Claire’s done a wee feature on Alpkit’s Genius jeans which I’ve been bumming around in the past few months, good kit too.
My column this month is about the US versus UK aspect, I totally ran out of space and it reads like a list of US gear, but there’s a few important UK mentions at the end. I originally intended it to say that the US was wrong for the UK, but as I wrote and drew on my experiences of the last couple of years, I realised that the gear is right, you just have to use your head to get the best out of it in our weather.
The photie accompanying the column is of a prototype pack with a very familiar logo on it…
Here’s one taken at the same time. Jeans and trainers on the hill? What the hell does he think he’s playing at?
