Summer Soft Shell from Rab®

OK- let’s start with the premise that the sun might actually shine some time in the coming months. If it does and if you’re out all day walking or climbing the chances are that you will want to consider some protection against the sun’s rays. If you’re keen to cover up, a long sleeved shirt is a good option but a classic button down style may not offer the features and fit you need to complement the rest of your outdoor clothing. Which is where the Rab® Boreas (men’s) and Aurora (women’s) comes in.

Presented with an Editor’s Choice Award by respected USA magazine, Backpacker. 
The Boreas Pull-on has been designed to offer fantastic sun protection (SPF 50+) when climbing or travelling in mountainous areas. The fabric does also offer some wind resistance but this does not compromise breathability and makes the Boreas a fantastic mid layer for both warm and cold conditions….perfect for those long summer days at the crag with the temperature in the high 30's  . . . 

·         Soft, breathable light stretch layer offering high sun protection
·         UPF 50+
·         Deep venting chest zip
·         1 chest stash pocket for small items
·         Under helmet hood
·         Flatlock, low bulk stretch seams for comfort and easy layering
·         Open cuffs for easy rolling
·         Medium cut
Our Peebles store is carrying the Men’s Boreas in Breaker Blue (£45) and the Women’s Aurora in Beluga (£45)

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.
