Gear Reviews

At Graham Uney Mountaineering we are often asked to test and review equipment and clothing for manufacturers. Our reviews are completely impartial – if we love something, we'll say so, and if we don't we'll be honest. To submit product/s for review please contact us directly in the first instance.

Unbiased, professional reviews you can trust
Graham Uney has been active in the mountains as a walker, backpacker, wild camper, rock climber, winter mountaineer, photographer, and wildlife watcher since the 1980s. Most reviews are written by Graham or his wife Olivia, based on actual tests of equipment in the field – we'll use the gear for the activity it is intended, and write the review accordingly. We don't write reviews from press releases!
