New technical waterproof shells from Haglofs

The new Glade jacket from Haglofs is a highly technical and full- featured waterproof shell that also happens to be manufactured using a durable recycled fabric.
Concentrating on the technical features first, you will find that the Proof 946 recycled fabric is waterproof and highly breathable to handle diverse weather conditions. The design of the jacket features:
  • Full front zipper with dual storm flaps
  • Two large torso pockets with watertight zippers
  • One laminated chest pocket
  • Watertight pit-zips for increased ventilation
  • 3-way adjustable hood with a foam and wire supported peak
  • Three inner mesh pockets (one zipped)
  • Articulated sleeves
  • Velcro adjustable cufs
  • Single-hand adjustable hem
  • Rear hang loop
  • A DWR treatment that's free of harmful chemicals.

The attention to detail that's shown in the design of this jacket is also evident in the consideration Haglofs have given to its environmental impact. Notably, this jacket is made from recycled fabric, one of the first performance waterproof shells we've come across to successfully employ this technology. But Haglofs have, with typical thoroughness, addressed environmental issues right across their supply chain, from design to far east manufacture, to delivery to our store.

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.
