Christmas Confessions of a Gadget Geek

I thought “Christmas Confessions of a Gadget Geek” was a better way of entitling a post than “Endurance tech presents I bought for myself and gave to someone else to give to me at Christmas” I’ve been generally ‘all gadgeted up’ for the things that I need for me to do my sporty stuff. And…

Nathan and Suunto Spartan Compass Calibration

This was just an excuse for a couple of nice photos. I waved around the Spartan like an idiot for about 2 minutes before resorting to taking some pictures. Great location, wannabe photographer still in training. I should have come back a bit later as it got darker. The Nathan water bottle is both reflective…

Review – Nathan Bandolier Vest

This is a nice late evening ‘hi-viz’ cover for runners and cyclists. Positives: It’s size is kept to a minimum whilst still enabling all round reflective visibility.

Review – Nathan LightSpur

I saw this concept last year and thought it was a good idea. I never followed it through to find out who sold it. Well we now have the answer with the Nathan LightSpur. It’s a single rear-of-shoe mounted LED light source which, as you run, enables those behind you to see you. Positives: It’s light…
