    Tested in Sweden: the Osprey Atmos AG 50 review

No better place for me than Kungsleden, Sweden to test a new backpack and lucky for me Osprey is willing to let me test the Osprey Atmos AG 50 pack. So here’s my review of…

    Tested: Montem trekking poles review

    Tested in New Zealand: Montem trekking poles Have you heard of Montem before? I’m quite sure you, like me, have not but in case you have, well done! A few months ago I received an email from founder Kevin if I wanted to try some Montem trekking poles.
