What’s In My Bag – Nordic/XC Skiing

by Sarah Morton February 09, 2015

I took up Nordic skiing a couple of years ago now, and to be honest, it doesn’t get the best rep – in terms of the ‘cool factor’ it probably doesn’t rank very high, but thanks to athletes like Andrew Young more and more people are taking it up. For me, it’s a great addition to my training schedule – in the Alps, it’s just not possible to run all the time and XC skiing can provide a seriously intense alternative. Plus, I love skating through the trees in the sunshine breathing in all that fresh air!

My ‘bag’ consists more of things stuffed into a pocket! Nordic skiing is a travel light kind of sport, unless you are touring. I generally wear the same sort of thing I wear running – so, lots of Adidas Climawarm and really just carry a few extras in case the wind picks up or the sun drops and I start to get cold.

Gear Check : Steve Holmes

by Steve Holmes January 15, 2015

Our latest Gear Check blog post comes from our latest Breo Hero, Steve Holmes. Steve is a qualified Mountaineering Instructor who runs the professional mountain guiding company Vertical Fever from his base in Fort William, Scotland.

Read on for a detailed breakdown of his kit.


There is a unique Winter scene in Scotland where budding climbers attempt to scale classic and modern routes up the side of mountains in any conditions the weather throws at us. It takes a certain type of person; someone willing to get up in freezing conditions, often in the dead of the night to literally torture themselves in horrendous weather just to climb a mountain. OK, it isn’t always so bad, we are occasionally blessed with bright blue skies and crisp fluffy snow to play in – a rarity admittedly!

Gear Check – Sarah Morton

What’s in my TRAIL RUNNING bag?

My trail running kit bag is probably as extensive as most of my climbing and mountaineering kit bags – contrary to popular belief, you need a hell of a lot of kit to go trail running in Scotland – most of the trails and hills are remote, rugged and challenging. In addition to that, you just have no idea what the weather is going to throw at you – one minute you could be basking in the sun, next, you’re covered in snow!

I have two kit bags for trail running – a 10L trail running back pack for longer runs and a racepack, that goes round my waist, for runs up to 20k or a couple of hours – both have a Breo Bag Buddy attached to them – it’s such a handy, light-weight time keeper, I never go for a run without it.

1. Trail shoes – quite aggressive at first sight, the soles of these little gems are like chunky mountain bike tyres – they’ll go over pretty much anything, but are a complete nightmare on tarmac! I only use Salomon running shoes – they support my feet so well, I’ve virtually eliminated footwear-related injuries.

Gear Check : Migs Enriquez

by Michael Enriquez October 14, 2014

The year 2014 is coming to close really fast. A lot has been checked on my bucket list, how about yours? Downhill skateboarding has taken a backseat to Freestyle Calisthenics in my current routine. I can’t wait to show off some videos. Just give me a month or 2 to polish my style. It’s really fun because its a sport and a workout all in one.

Let me also share to you the gear that i always have with me:

An Iphone with a broken glass at the back haha. I never leave the house without my phone. I think its a must have for all of us boardriders who travel from time to time.
