Salomon OUTBACK 500 GTX Hikers
Salomon, founded in 1947 by François Salomon in the heart of the French Alps are currently the European leader in outdoor sports equipment and who would argue? Salomon have quite possibly created one of the best hiking boots known to man. With a clean, modern look, the OUTBACK 500 GTX is a lightweight and crafted from GORTEX to provide the waterproof, feather-weight and robust outer shell .With a sculpted collar and Advanced Chassis with EnergyCell, it offers superior mobility as well as support and comfort. A great little piece of tech we loved was a locking eyelet between the forefoot and ankle eyelets that locks the laces in place, enabling independent and precise adjustment.The OUTBACK provides all the protection you need for rugged trails, autumn walks for tough hikes with more comfort and less weight. We tested these from a series of hikes and trails in Wales and we’re happy to report they bounced back from anything that we threw at them, keeping out feet dry and secure, including full submersion in rivers and even the sea, by accident of course.

BEATS Solo Pro Headphones
While they’re called the Solo Pro, make no mistake about it: Beats’ latest release is the fourth-generation of their on-ear design. As expected, they add the new H1 chip for hands-free Siri activation, instant pairing with Apple devices, and outstanding battery life. Speaking of the latter, they offer three listening modes: Pure ANC adaptive noise cancellation, a transparency mode that lets you hear your surroundings, and extended power, offering up to 22 hours of ANC playback or 40 with the active tech turned off. The new design also exposes the metal sliders, gives all surfaces a matte finish, and employs all-new ear cushions with added surface area for a more comfortable fit. The result is a headphone that’s still recognisable as Beats with a more refined, mature look.
