Rocktrail Trekking Poles from Lidl.

Andrew Hardie, OutdoorsMagic
13 September 2010
  • Summary: Excellent value lightweight carbon fibre poles for only £14.99. The new pole arrived from Germany in only 4 days including the weekend so I now have 3 at a fiver each! Incredible after sales Unfortunately being Lidl they will probably be out of stock now but one to look out for next time around.
  • Pros: Very good value Carbon Fibre poles,£14.99 a pair. Comfortable grip extending the full top section - no need to adjust for short ascents. Easily adjustable straps with fleece lining. Pole clip. Clips with screw on disks and rubber tips for easy interchangeability. Lightweight, 100gm less per pair ...
  • Cons: Built in cushioning not required by me.Tricky mechanism for locking cushioning gave problems. I rang the free German helpline but several attempts on the phone failed to lock the second section. The pleasant lady offered to send another pole. Afterwards I managed to get the pole locked!

EXCELLENT GPS TO ADD TO OTHER NAVIGATION KIT

Frank Raynes, OutdoorsMagic
18 October 2008
  • Summary: We bought the unit after hill walking for 50 years. After map and compass and common sense, we rate having a GPS as a safety back-up in mist and low cloud. The unit is used both on the hills and at sea.
  • Pros: Good battery life, reliable. User friendly keyboard and software. Never had to question accuracy.
  • Cons: Receiver sensitivity. Larger than etrex.

GREAT BASIC GPS WITH GOOD BATTERY LIFE

Hamish Fenton, OutdoorsMagic
3 August 2008
  • Summary: I have been using this GPS (in conjunction with paper maps and compass) for a few years now, it meets my purposes perfectly in that most of the time i use it for marking points of interest and recording routes for download to my computer later.
  • Pros: Long Battery Life Ease of use, also it is easy and quick to customise displayed data fields. Waterproof and fairly robust (although I do keep it almost permanently in the neoprene case) standard mini usb connection cables and computer software included for downloading/uploading data once the gps ...
  • Cons: sometimes the belt clip comes undone, sometimes satillite aquisition can be a bit slow, especially if you are more than a hundred miles from where you last turned it on. Mapsource software supplied is not the best system for naming waypoints or routes is rather slow and a little tedious selecting...

CAN'T FAULT IT YET

Crezzer, OutdoorsMagic
11 February 2006
  • Summary: Great package
  • Pros: £118 from amazon, even the dodgey ebay shops aren't that cheap. usb cable in package. Once acquired, it keeps a signal in all but the thickest cover. It's said you still need an aftermarket serial cable for some applications, I've had no problems with the usb (supplied) with various applications.
  • Cons: Really can't find any yet.

Disappointment

In Pinn, Amazon
23 September 2008
  • Summary: I bought the GPS60 to replace an 8-year-old GPS12 that has done hundreds of walks in the Lakes and nearly 200 Munros. There is a lot to like about the GPs60 until you take it out into the field.
