Robens Appalachian 1100 Sleeping Bag

They Say – Ideal for demanding outdoor enthusiasts, the Appalachian 1100 sleeping bag is long lasting, made from high quality materials and has all the features necessary for top on-trail performance. The use of water resistant and antimicrobial siliconised MicroThermo filling means high levels of warmth combined with resilience, making these sleeping bags tough and effective. Features are well considered such as an anti-snag zip guard, full-length zip baffle and internal pocket. We Say – I’ve been using this sleeping bag through the late summer into winter. I got it…

Robens Turbo Boiler Pot

They Say – The Turbo Boiler Pot has a heat exchange system to increase efficiency, a see-through lid with built-in strainer and removable Neoprene sleeve to keep food hot and protect fingers from the heat. A folding handle minimises pack size. We Say – I wasn’t prepared for how quick this pot can help water boil as no other pot I’ve owned has ever performed so well. Usually, with the same MSR stove that I used with this pot, I’ve boiled a litre of water in 5 or 6 minutes….

Robens Goshawk Tent

They Say – Updated to be lighter weight, the award-winning Goshawk is an even better two-person tent. Light enough for two to carry on the trail during extended treks, this offers comfortable useable space in the form of two separate porch options, including a rear sheltered doorway which uses walking poles as supports. This allows each trekker to have his or her own entrance. It’s stable, easy to pitch and versatile. We Say – I’ve been using this tent for the past 3 months. Here’s a few thoughts. First, it’s…

Robens Prima Core 9cm Air Mattress

They Say – Prima Core is a new compact airbed that features an insulating layer of PrimaLoft® bonded to the top inner surface of the tubes for optimum performance. The airbed has a sturdy push/lock valve for easy inflation/deflation. We Say – This Robens air mattress is, at 780g, a little heavier than my previous lightweight camping matresses and that was of concern to me at first as I planned, on most journeys this summer, to have to carry it in my backpack all day. A few hundred grams of extra…

ROBENS self inflating Air Impact 2.5cm mattress and Air Impact 3.8 cm

They Say – Self inflating Air Impact 2.5cm The tapered shape of the Air Impact self-inflating mat provides plenty of space at the upper body where it is needed, but saves on weight by reducing width at the legs where it’s less crucial. Even more weight is saved by the lightweight 20D double thread ripstop polyester outer, making the Air Impact range particularly appealing to self-propelled adventurers like trekkers, cycle tourers and kayakers. A brass valve makes for durable and effective inflation and deflation, even in cold conditions. Discover more…

Two doors, two generous porches and large rainproof mesh vents that are accessible from inside, add to its three-season suitability and it is quick and easy to pitch thanks to using double clip-on hooks and Fast-Foot cups on one side.

Robens Osprey 3EX Tent

  We’ve been using this lightweight tent for the past 3 months. This is what we think of it. They Say - This tent offers three people comfortable living space, great stability and ease of pitching as well as a very generous and versatile porch space. For two it delivers luxurious space, yet still at a weight that could happily be carried on trail making it a good choice for long distance, self-supported treks, especially if prolonged bad weather is expected. The large porch provides excellent storage for bags, equipment or even…
