REGATTA TRIED AND TESTED BY THE BEST!
Here at Regatta, quality and innovation is paramount when developing our new products. We constantly strive to provide great value gear. So, what is the best way to achieve this…? By exposing our new products to the elements and ensuring they are tried and tested by an outdoor expert like Steve Howe.
Steve is a professionally qualified mountaineering instructor, he holds the highest qualification in the Mountain Instructor Scheme and has over 30 years experience. He has introduced many people to the joys of being in the great outdoors including hill walking, mountaineering, rock climbing, scrambling, and technical snow and ice climbing. His dedication has even earned him an honour by The Queen, with membership of The Royal Victorian Order for his commitment to using adventurous outdoor activities to develop potential in young people.
Steve knows the importance of having the appropriate equipment to deal with the vast range of weather conditions our British weather can throw at us and his extensive experience proves invaluable in testing and refining Regatta Clothing.
“I am proud to make a contribution to Regatta, it is an organisation which increases the enjoyment of so many people in the outdoors by offering value for money clothing which really works.”
The pictures to the right were taken recently in the Lake District on a particularly winters day, walking with his 15 year old son on Bannerdale Crags. On this occasion it was the men’s Graben Jacket being put to the test.
“I like and trust the Graben for days like this in the lakes. It packs down small when in the rucksack and I have always stayed dry! Even when making my way uphill in the worst weather I rarely get unacceptable condensation on the inside. The pit zips really help to keep the airflow going inside the jacket. As winter turns to spring, the Lakes can have contrasting conditions on the fells with full winter conditions on Hellvellyn and the other high tops and warm sunshine out on the fringes in the places like Mungrisedale in the NE lakes. The day after these photos were taken I was running on the fells in Taiga top and shorts but with an Iridium jacket tied around the waist just in case! ”
