See who's best for fleeces, waterproof coats, walking boots, rucksacks, tents and sleeping bags

 

We have just published an Outdoor Gear special report which covers fleeces, waterproof coats, walking boots, rucksacks, tents and sleeping bags.

 

The 62 page guide rates and compares over 60 leading outdoor gear companies. We have surveyed the environmental and ethical policies of the companies. The results reveal that virtually all the companies have woefully inadequate environmental and ethical reporting policies. We also look at nanotechnology, synthetic v natural materials, and animal rights issues.

 

But all is not doom and gloom. Our guide reveals that there are Best Buys for each of the six products.

 

This Buyers' Guide Plus report also includes all the stories behind the ratings of the companies.
