An extensive dissertation on the principles of Layering, concentrating on how you can improve
your kit using current synthetic and Merino base layers, plus a discussion of shirts, pants, shorts
and outerwear. Over 60 products from 18 manufacturers were involved in this exhaustive project.


A discussion of a number of the boots and shoes I use for photography sessions and other
adventures, including Lowa boots, the Vivobarefoot Hybrid, and three innovative shoes from
Skora, a company that creates superb minimalist shoes primarily designed for running which
in my opinion are the best shoes for walking, approach and stalking that I have found to date.
