Outwell – Chef Cooker Premium 2 Burner Stove
They say: The Chef cooker contains a 1900W stove and 1800W grill. The grill is non-stick ensuring ease of use.
GWA highlight: The grill comprises a long hollow bar with multiple holes through which gas flows pretty evenly across the grill. The non-stick grill pan works brilliantly to stop meat- stuffs binding, and once you’re familiar with the fact that the middle gets hotter than the edges, it’s a cinch to cook on. GWA summary: The Outwell Chef Cooker Premium 2 Burner Stove is a godsend for grilling things that would stick to a pan or otherwise need barbequing. It also allows an easily boiled kettle, and works well on windy days. It’s very sturdy and well made, but a bit of a sod to clean.

Price: £75.00 Asics – GT-2160 Running Shoes
They say: The shoe is perfect for the serious runner in need of some additional support to prevent against overpronation. The main difference between the 2160 and the 2150 is the addition of Guidance Line, which is designed to give you a more efficient path through the gait cycle. This new Guidance Line also makes the 2160 the lightest shoe in the 2000 series so far.
GWA highlight: Often it’s the small things that really round off a good product. And in this case it’s the laces. The shoes boast conventional rather than “asymmetrical lacing” and while I have trouble telling my right from my left what I do know is that they rarely came undone while out for a jog – something that gave me more happiness than is probably healthy.
GWA summary: A lightweight but sturdy trainer with plenty of cushioning – perfect for runners who take to busy pavements. Their design can help improve technique – with the possibility of impressive gains in speed with protection from injury.

Viewranger – iPhone navigation App
They say:: ViewRanger is the fully featured Outdoors GPS App and the only one with access to OS mapping for all of UK & Ireland. Used and trusted by many of Britain’s Search & Rescue teams, it’s ideal for Walkers, Mountain Bikers and virtually any off-road activity. GWA highlight: Viewranger’s piece-de- resistance is something called Buddy Beacon. This is a feature that broadcasts your exact location (when you want it to) to anyone who has your unique pin number. If you’re on the
hills, your family can keep an eye on you. Likewise, potentially, Search & Rescue organisations, or other members of your group. Very neat indeed.
GWA summary: Viewranger for iPhone is a mind-bogglingly good piece of kit for the price. For under £2 you turn your iPhone into a good GPS when there’s no phone reception. Pay for the OS Map package (£15) and you have a brilliant, detailed off-road GPS. Stunning value.

Robens – Mythos
tent They say: This ultralight Mythos Solo tent offers assured comfort to solo
adventurers. For 2012, we have fine-tuned all the elements that make the Mythos Solo an essential companion on lightweight expeditions and made improvements including Clamcleat guyline runners and the Robens Storm Guard system for exceptional stability. GWA highlight: Robens Mythos Solo is a 1-man tent with just enough room for a little gear alongside yourself. The advantage of such a small tent is that, when packed down, it’s roughly the size of a 2-litre coke bottle, and just a little over half the weight (1.35kg). This is obviously a very good thing if you’re travelling alone and especially where weight saving is a major issue.
GWA summary: A really good, top quality one-man tent, ideal for the singleton survivalist. It has good headroom and is easy to put up. However, you’re paying for a top-quality tent here, so weigh up the price versus the advantage in weight and size. Backpackers, yes. Bikers… more debatable.
