Review: TOG24 Outdoor Gear

TOG24 kindly sent over some gear which has helped me get well into my hiking stride this summer.

I’ve been wearing the Stutton Waterproof Jacket in coral red, guaranteed to brighten up a dull day, the Raywell women’s tech t-shirt for warmer weather and a cosy hoody for snuggling into at the end of an active day. Here’s how it performed.
