Nick Morris Atomic Review

Warm and dry in a Scottish winter and excellent breathability on a Spring day in a featherweight jacket: that’s the Atomic. The jacket has all the frills without the weight. A fully adjustable hood, pit zips, waist cords and pockets that work with a harness or waist strap. But how does it perform, the question everyone wants to know. I have taken the jacket out over the last few months through many different conditions including a Scottish winter and a Lake District Spring, so this review covers both extremes. The... Read More

JORDAN WYLIE’S 15x15x15: DAY TWELVE – PEMBROKESHIRE COAST

Day 12 saw me head to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in West Wales.  This National park has a varied landscape of rugged cliffs, sandy and stone beaches, wooded estuaries and wild inland hills.  I’m not sure how many people come here to run as it is quite some drive to get to but I can promise you the journey was worth every mile indeed.

JORDAN WYLIE’S 15x15x15: DAY TEN – BRECON BEACONS

Day 10 saw me I’m familiar territory, the good old Brecon Beacons, a place I knew very well from my time as a soldier in the Army. Seeing the welcome sign, sent a shiver down my spine and reminded me of many a cold, wet night sleeping under the stars. The Brecon Beacons are beautiful but from a soldiers perspective were often unforgiving and relentless, this was the reason many elite units such as the SAS, Royal Marines and Paras spent a lot of time here, they say you can...

JORDAN WYLIE’S 15x15x15: DAY NINE – NORTH YORKSHIRE MOORS

Day 9 and after a good nights rest, I was still feeling a long way from 100% but was keen to get back out there to complete the final leg “t’up north”, it was the North York Moors today. For me, this place was a bit of a hidden gem and if the truth be told I nearly missed it off my route plan, I had naively assumed it was just part of the Yorkshire Dales, some geography lessons needed for me I know! Day 1.          ... Read More
