Out of the blue, I was approached to review the fourth edition of Chris Townsend's Backpacker's Handbook. More on this once I've ploughed through it. It's certainly very comprehensive.

Towards the end of January, I'll be reviewing Wild Country's new Zephyros 1 solo backpacking tent. I'm really looking forward to seeing what it's like. Basically a Terra Nova Laser but rather more robust (and heavier, of course) but for £150 it seems remarkably good value.
