Mountain Mardwear sub-zero jacket
The Mountain Hardwear Men's Sub Zero SL Hooded Jacket surrounds you with 650-fill down for the coldest possible conditions this winter. Mountain Hardwear's most popular down jacket, the Sub Zero SL is cloaked in Conduit SL—the company's proprietary water resistant, breathable fabric, allowing you to wear the Sub Zero SL skiing in drier climates and cruising around town while those fat flakes pile up. The seams in the baffles are not sewn-through, much like a high-quality sleeping bag. This means there is no true separation of the insulation at the seams, so you stay warmer and more comfortable, without the cold spots common in sewn-through down garments. The hood is detachable, and the fleece-lined collar and hand pockets keep you extra comfortable. An interior mesh water-bottle pocket is super handy for backcountry excursions, and of course, Mountain Hardwear's quality is legendary—there are few companies that match their excellence. Available in four colours…

Pitzips work with the Leatherneck Jacket's highly breathable fabric to regulate your body temperature, and Lycra inner cuffs keep out snow.

Sensible winter shoes


adidas Trekking


Trekking were a cult classic in my neck of the woods from around 1983 to 1985. After the older pioneers had took their ball away and decided to go with the stoner scall combo of suede, lambswool and denim, the younger fraternity still craved the trabs and labels but didn’t wanna look out of place to in the latest fad. From a footwear point of view, the answer lay in the adidas hiking book called ‘Trekking’ – a royal blue behemoth of a boot that first surfaced in Wade Smith around Christmas of 1983. They were as dear as all the top end marks of the time, both Trekking and the pioneering running shoe adidas Dallas came in around £55. The boots looked great with the semi flared trouser that had made its way from the capital of flares t’other end of the East Lancs. So a good compromise on still being stoner chic was made, the later khaki colour version sitting great at bottom the Paniaro ensemble of thick MOP or Benetton cords, topped off with a lovely Pop 84 or Ciao wool jacket.


Adidas had a released these in Japan a few years back in brown, they were superb quality and I bought of same shoes for the missus, pretending they were mine. The latest offering doesn’t get anywhere near the Japanese re-issue and the daft giraffe like detail on the too wide apart stripes spoils them a bit. Like marmite, they won’t be for everyone.



adidas GSG9


Another boot from adidas and another re-issued re-issue. This time the boot is not as high and they’ve stuck the shocks in. I’ve got the original GS9 (made for the Bosch SWAT team) in both leather and the desert version and they’re ace. Warm comfy and durable. Well worth a punt.



adidas Micropacer Gore-Tex


Oh no, another Micropacer! Not a fan of the these per say, despite them being a million years ahead of their team. I like the black stealth efforts from a few years back and these too look more sensible than the pearlised leather futuristic disco boppers of yore. You’ll pay through he nose for ‘em though which is a shame, no chance of these hanging around though.
