This book is published by a North East company by the name of Trail Guides. The aim of the company is to produce guides that are user friendly, informative and in an easily readable format. On the evidence of this book, they have hit the nail firmly on the head.
The Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful area which was designated a National Park in 1954, and on a personal note, is a favourite destination for me. I never tire of its landscape, and many unspoilt villages and pubs.
Another cracking little book from Trailguides. This one however, is a little different. It is essentially an update of a book of the same title, written by W. Ford Robertson, and published in 1926.
The Medusa pack is Montane’s first addion to it’s rucksack range. I have been using this pack for about a year now, and have to say I’m impressed. It is a very light and comfortable carry, has all the features I like, and very few that I don’t.
I bought several of these a while ago for group use, and I have to say I am impressed with them after using one myself on several wild camps,
Having used this rucksack for several months now, it has taken over as my main “do it all” pack. Basically the Medusa’s big brother, it has a bigger load carrying capacity and includes many of the same well designed technical features.
This review should have been posted long ago, however due to unforeseen circumstances, the boots weren’t worn as much as they should have been last winter.
