Review: Groove Life Belt

Groove Life currently have 27 different webbing and belt fascia plate options, including camouflage and woodgrain. The rucksack buckle sat happily right on top of the flat Groove buckle. The Groove  Belt is a bit fiddly to initially set up due to the snug fit of the webbing into the buckle, but this is once-off adjustment. The Groove Belt can be purchased online direct from Groove Life.

Review: Arc'teryx Atom LT Hoody

The attention to detail on this jacket like most Arc’teryx clothing is perfect, the logo is well stitched, and the soft lining and smooth exterior make the jacket feel great. The outside of the Arc’teryx Atom LT is coated in a DWR layer (Durable Water Repellent), which allows water to bead and shed off the jacket without being absorbed. I really enjoy the excellent mobility in the Arc’teryx jackets and the Atom LT was no different to others I’ve tested, it provides a great range of mobility in the shoulders and neck, with or without the hood on. Overall, for an insulating layer in the cold, the Arc’teryx Atom LT is great, like most Arc’teryx clothing lines it

Review: Ottie Men's Merino T-shirt

Melbourne based Ottie take quality Australian grown, ethical (cruelty-free), superfine merino wool and turn it into a t-shirt which hikers world over routinely use as a base layer – for good I tested a black tee which as you’ll notice in the pics seems to be a theme for me as a Tasmanian walker (there’s a reason why Tasmanian tiger snakes look almost all black).The women’s tees, according to Ottie’s website, have ditched the “piddly sleeves” and “gaping neckline” of typical women’s tees to suit what hikers are looking for. This weight is on the lower end – Icebreaker would label it Ultralight (150-170 gsm) with typical merino base layers starting at around 150gsm and going up to 280gsm (Macpac).Features of the Ottie Merino include: I should have selected a small as the sizing and the relaxed fit meant it wasn’t snug against the body and the high winds we experienced made the tee flap a bit which lost some heat when I stopped moving, but then again I haven’t been a small since high school.

Gold Creek Reservoir Walk: A Gem in Brisbane’s West

Take the Western Freeway out to Indooroopilly, then wind along Brookfield Rd, passing through Brookfield and then turning onto Gold Creek Rd. Eventually, you will arrive at the Gold Creek Reservoir car park, which can accommodate 30 or so cars. Near the car park, you will find the sign below, which gives you some history about the walk as well as a rough trail map. Then follow Brookfield Rd out to Brookfield and then continue onto Gold Creek Rd.
