THAT WA­TER­PROOF UP THERE is def­i­nitely wa­ter­proof. You know how I know that? Be­cause that’s me stand­ing un­der­neath Sgwd yr Eira in the Bre­con Bea­cons to find out. The force of the water might have drilled a hole in my scalp, but at least I was able to tell you it worked. That’s the kind of fun we have when we’re test­ing out kit for Coun­try Walk­ing. And be­cause we test so much gear dur­ing a year, and be­cause you might not re­mem­ber when we tested some­thing you’re in­ter­ested in, we’ve pro­duced this Year­book: a pot­ted pré­cis of all the win­ter-ded­i­cated kit we’ve cov­ered in 2017. Each re­view is checked and up­dated with the ben­e­fit of longer-term use, re­veal­ing new-found ben­e­fits – and the odd newly-dis­cov­ered flaw. Take it to your lo­cal gear shop, or keep it handy as you browse on­line, and with any luck you’ll be able to face the cold­est of days with ab­so­lute con­fi­dence. En­joy.
