Welcome to my new Tuesday LIVE Lunchtimes at 1pm where I show you what running gear I’m testing each week and answer your questions.

This week it’s budget packs, with my first look at a £6.99 Lidl Crivit Running Rucksack 10L and a £27.99 Decathlon Kalenji Trail Running Pack 10L.

In this live broadcast you’ll find out how these two compare to £115-£150 packs from the main trail running brands in my previous film here https://youtu.be/uwGOxRJ308k

I have a dozen more still to test, so tell me which one you’d most like to see next week on my Instagram story today (11 Sept 2018) or in the comments below.

I am also ordering in this exciting budget pack from Aonijie £30 https://amzn.to/2x8BCTE and one from Alpkit RRP £42…

And people were asking about my portable iPhone charger the Goal Zero Flip 10 too: https://amzn.to/2MjprZy
I really like this one as it’s so light and portable, enough for a whole iPhone or GoPro charge from totally dead, plus a bit left over usually. AND you can keep your tech plugged into it while it’s also charging – essential for speedy recharge! This comes Wild Ginger Films HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Transparency: As per usual for all outdoor journalists, I was sent this kit to test out free of charge. I am not paid to wear and review this kit and I provide trusted, independent reviews just as I did as editor of Trail Running magazine 2010-17.
