Marmot Palisades: versatile waterproof jacket

If you’re looking for a jacket that offers real weatherproof performance for hill walking and outdoor activities but can also be used for skiing and is presentable enough to be worn in town, then the versatile Marmot Palisades jacket (£200)could be just what you need.

Manufactured in GORE_TEX® Performance 2 Layer fabric with the peace of mind offered by Gore’s Guaranteed to Keep you Dry™ promise the Palisades has a host of adaptable design features. 
  • There are under-arm PitZips™ to assist in ventilation when you are working hard
  • The hood has a laminated brim for optimum visibility and to prevent rain running straight off the hood on to your face. It also can be rolled away or completely removed for a less bulky collar-line
  • The integral Powder Skirt that makes the Palisades suitable for skiing can be zipped-off when not needed.
  • The jacket is Zippin™ compatible, a lining fleece can be attached to the internal zip. Although this is a YKK zip, common to most manufacturers, it should be born in mind that Marmot orientate their zip pullers the opposite way round to most British and European companies. As a result the most suitable fleece for zipping in will be a Marmot one.

25 years on...still going strong

In November 1992 we were working hard to get our shop in Peebles opened. We were living in a draughty old shepherd's cottage in the Moorfoot Hills at the time and one day, our landlady remarked that there was a famous mountaineer coming to give a fundraising talk in aid of the village hall. It seemed unlikely but yes, Chris Bonington was coming to Carrington.
It proved to be a memorable evening that people still occasionally mention to us today. Standing room only with an eclectic audience of school children, Women's Institute stalwarts, elders of the kirk and a smattering of outdoor enthusiasts. It probably wasn't the kind of gathering Bonington was used to speaking to but his professionalism and communication skills ensured that his stories came alive for everyone in the room.
At the end of the presentation we joined the scrum of autograph hunters and got his signature on a poster which we hung in our new shop on the day it opened. It stayed on the wall for quite a few y…

Surprise return of The Angry Corrie

It's not often that a brown envelope contains a pleasant surprise- but yesterday one arrived at the Peebles shop that did. Totally unexpected Issue 78 of The Angry Corrie, Scotland's self-styled "first and finest hillzine". We'd got used to the sporadic nature of the issues but with the previous one being published in Spring 2010 we had assumed that Murdo Munro had hung up his bobble hat and TAC had quietly retired. It's sometimes nice to be wrong- so The Angry Corrie is available again, with the familiar mix of hill news, access issues and list-ticking at only £1 a copy.
