This winter we are bringing you more online kit and equipment reviews than ever before, with unique online reviews by our gear expert Alf Alderson to supplement those featured in Ski+board magazine.
By the end of the season, more than 100 pieces of kit will have put through Alf’s rigorous testing regime and all of these will be appearing on the Ski Club’s website.
A wide range of reviews are already up online, ranging from goggles to gloves and there are many more to come over the following days and weeks. Keep an eye on this page which will be updated on a weekly basis as the home of the Ski Club’s gear reviews!
Goggles are an essential piece of kit and increasingly are available with interchangeable lenses – ideal for when conditions change during the day. With this in mind, Alf has put 21 pairs of goggles from top brands through their paces, including:
Anon (M3), Bloc (Equaliser ER5), Bolle (Y6 OTG), Cebe (Feel’in), Dragon (NFX2 & X1S), Giro (Balance), Julbo (Airflux), Nike (Command & Mazot), Oakley (Airbrake & Windjacket), Panda (Funnel), POC (Lobes & Fovea), Salice (619 Flash), Salomon (XT-one), Scott (LCG), Sinner (Toxic), Smith (I/O7) and Uvex (Downhill 2000 VLM).
