Below is a summary of the Latest Product News added to UKClimbing's Gear section in the last week:
Alpkit Phud 03-Oct-08
Phud boulder mat is a rectangle. No rounded corners, no chiselled edges, no bells, no whistles. When you carry it you will look like Mr Strong. At £70 including delivery there just isn't a bouldering mat on the market which comes close to offering this amount of performance at such a low price.
Deuter Guide 30+ SL 01-Oct-08
Whether used as a seat for a snack in the snow, an ice-axe store or used to carry all your hardware - the new range of Guide backpacks are not only well equipped but they can take a beating. The slim shape and body hugging fit of these packs provide complete carry control, even over difficult terrain. And with their ergonomically shaped, flexible Vari Flex hip belts, there is added freedom of movement. A new SL version has been introduced with more capacity for extended hours.
