In tonight’s live gear chat at 8:30pm tonight (Wed 13 March) I’m really excited to show you the Salomon Advanced Skin 8 Set running vest which is the women’s version of the Men’s Advanced Skin 12 or 5 sets. The features are the same, but the fit is designed especially for the female form (scroll down for links to buy).

In this film I’m going to give you my review, and I’m also going to compare it with the old unisex Adv Skin 12 Set, and the S-Lab Sense Ultra 8 Set.

I also have my Raidlight, Montane, Inov8 packs to compare it with too, and my fave budget options from Aonijie and Decathlon so we can see what we’re paying 3 times the price for.

Then I’ll take your questions live, so keep the chat coming. Or comment below the film if you’re watching again later. 

After that I’ll be letting you know who we’re talking to next week on the live show, he’s a super chap! Reminding you what goodies are in this month’s competition, showing you the WGR Buffs and telling you about Keswick Mountain Festival.
