Therm-a-Rest® EvoLiteTM mattress blends award-winning NeoAir comfort with the convenience of self-inflation.
Air mattress fans rave about ultralight compactness, while self-inflating mattress fans hold fast to stable comfort and convenience. Well, what if you could have both?
At 480 g (1 lb. 1 oz.), the EvoLite mattress hinges its blended technology on Atmos™ Foam, the lightest and most compressible foam on the market. Exclusive to Therm-a-Rest, the foam is poured in a closed, atmospherically controlled chamber that allows all gasses to be captured and “scrubbed” before venting, ensuring precision control over uniformity and loft. Therm-a-Rest alternates foam and air channels to drastically reduce the weight of traditional foam mattresses while amplifying loft.At 5 cm (2 inches) of loft, no other lightweight, self-inflating mattress provides this amount of loft and comfort. Excellent self-inflation allows just a few breaths to top off the thick mattress for optimal firmness.
The EvoLiteTM, with an R-value of 2.1 is the perfect all-round mattress for three-season-activities. And of course,it’s ultralight and compact enough to keep it squarely in the realm of those looking to move with a minimum through the backcountry.
The EvoLite™ mattress is available now in sizes S-L in selected retailers. The recommended retail price is £100.00 in the UK and €119.95 in Ireland for the regular size. For more information visit www.thermarest.com
NEW this spring/summer: Montane’s Allez Micro Hoodie with Polartec® Power Grid™
Hitting the shops this spring, as part of Montane’s new VIA™ Trail series of mountain trail running gear, is the Allez Micro Hoodie for women, made using Polartec® Power Grid™ fabric.
The new collection, designed with world class trail runners, epitomises Montane’s core ethos of ‘lightweight yet functional’. The Allez Micro Hoodie is super lightweight and versatile - perfect as a baselayer or as a lightweight mid-layer and ideal for wearing while trail running, walking or alpine running.
The Polartec® Power Grid™fabric used in the Allez Micro Hoodie has a grid design structure that enhances both wicking efficiency and breathability by generating channels of targeted touch points that absorb and transport moisture vapour for faster evaporation. The result is a technical next-to-skin base layer that is lightweight, highly breathable, fast drying with superior moisture wicking. Thanks to the compressible nature of the fabric it packs small yet provides exceptional warmth to weight.

Fjallraven introduces a new range of Curved Fit Trousers
Offering ultimate comfort and fit, Fjallraven extends its range of durable and functional outdoor trousers with two new Curved Fit versions. Developed specifically to suit the female figure, the new Curved Fit trousers feature a slightly more accentuated waistline and a more generous cut over the rear and thighs. The result? Optimum freedom of movement and a flattering fit free from bunching, tightness or gaps at the back of the waist.
Combining an enhanced fit with the quality and performance outdoor enthusiasts have come to expect from Fjallraven trousers, the new Curved Fit has been introduced on two of the brand’s bestselling models.
For fast-paced treks and challenging terrain, the new Nikka Curved trousers offer the optimum balance of protection and freedom of movement. Designed for maximum mobility, the high-performance trousers combine stretch fabric with Fjallraven’s durable and adaptable G-1000®. A higher cut at the rear offers increased comfort and protection and multiple pockets increase the trousers’ practicality.
For everyday outdoor adventures, Fjallraven’s Ovik Curved Trousers pair the new fit with the Scandinavian clothing expert’s signature timeless and classic tailoring. Constructed from soft yet durable G-1000® Silent, the versatile Ovik Curved trousers can travel effortlessly from the high-street to the hill. Discreet hand pockets and a larger leg pocket boost the trousers’ functionality and the G-1000® fabric’s tight weave ensures the Ovik Curved easily stand up to the exertions of daily outdoor life.
Made from Fjallraven’s durable and adaptable G-1000® fabric, both of the trouser models can be adapted to suit the conditions with natural Greenland Wax. Adding more wax increases their wind and water-resistance, alternatively simply washing the wax out results in a cooler, more breathable garment.
