Rab Baltoro Lite softshell jacket

We have just taken delivery of new stocks of Rab Baltoro Lite jackets (£110), one of our most popular Soft Shell garments that offers an excellent balance between warmth, lightweight, wind resistance and breathability.

Billed by Rab as a summer Alpine piece the Baltoro Lite has excellent year-round capablities in the UK climate. It is made from Polartec® Power Shield® Lite fabric that combines a tightly woven nylon outer face with a warm polyester fleece inner face. The outer surface is durable and wind resistant and has an excellent water repellent finish that allows rain to really bead on the surface while the soft fleece inner face provides an appropriate level of insulation for active use in colder weather. These properties combine to effectively combat drizzle and wind and when the weather closes in and you have to reach for your waterproof shell, the breathability of the Baltoro Lite will ensure that the performance of your outer layer is not compromised.

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.
