Traveller Wins Gold and Best on Test Award!

We’re delighted to have just won Best On Test and a Gold Award in Digital Camera magazine’s review in the April issue for our Traveller Jacket. It proudly won 5/5 stars beating off competition from Paramo. What an accolade! For those of you who own one of these jackets, you’ll know that it’s got a fantastic number of pockets (13 in all!), whilst still being a protective outer jacket. Our Raptor Waistcoat was also reviewed coming joint second with 4.5/5 stars.


This is what reviewer Ben Andrews had to say about the Traveller Jacket

Compared with the Raptor, this jacket’s outer fabric doesn’t feel quite so substantial, but it’s easy to move in, and quiet. It’s also windproof yet breathable, water instantly beads off the waterproof coating, so you and your gear will stay dry. The Traveller shares the same size range as the Raptor and fits as expected, but has the added advantage that it can double as an everyday raincoat. It’s not compromised on a shoot, though, with 13 pockets scattered outside and in to provide decent kit stowage. Two huge lower front pockets are ideally suited to lenses, and there’s a pair of side slots for maps, and a couple of hand pouches. The detachable hood incorporates a drawstring and wired peak.Inside the Traveller jacket, the soft Innovation XL lining provides warmth without adding bulk, while also wicking away moisture.
5/5 stars


And this was his comment on the Raptor Waistcoat:
Packing more pockets than a pool hall – 15, to be precise – this waistcoat can store a huge amount of gear. Two expandable lower front pockets easily swallow a lens each, and a pair of chest pockets above can house another two optics. Behind these are spacious side-access slots ideal for maps or guide books, if you fancy carrying a rain poncho or even a tablet, these can be stowed in huge internal and external rear pouches. Extra inner compartments provide a home for smaller accessories. Military-grade Rip-Tec ripstop fabric and rugged construction ensure the waistcoat can cope when fully loaded, and it repels water well. Other nice touches include shoulder padding and a substantial neck collar to help ease the strain of a camera strap or shoulder bag. Sizes range from Small to XXXXL, and we found our Medium example shaped up to expectations.”
