Webtogs Autumn/Winter Photo Competition 2013!

I am excited to announce that in the run-up to Christmas Webtogs will be running a fortnightly photo competition! Think of it as a sort of online Webtogs advent calendar.

Every two weeks we will be releasing a theme or buzzword upon which photos are to be based. How you interpret each fortnightly theme is up to you, although they must depict, or at least be related to the great outdoors (depictions of Webtogs kit in action appreciated)! This week’s photo theme is AUTUMN. (more…)

New for Old competition winners!

Wow – we have been amazed by the entries in our new for old competition. We were bowled over by the quality, the stories and history behind the gear you have loved (and abused!)

Judging such entries proved a lot tougher than we first thought, with some seriously deserving cases in there. We cogitated and deliberated however to finally come up with a winner, and a runner up as well, as deciding between the two proved tough!

Mary's jacket

First up, the runner up. Mary Pollard sent in this picture of her Teddy wrapped in her Berghaus raincoat circa 1980ish. It is we think a lightning, one of the first Gore-Tex coats that were available for sale here in the UK. So not only is the Teddy cute, but the jacket is a piece of outdoors clothing history!

Kevin's boots

The Winner however are these boots from Kevin Woods. We are frankly amazed that he is actually still walking in his Meindl Burma Pros. The rubber rand has pretty much worn totally away, and the leather has completely split on the sides. Couple that with the fact the toe has worn away to reveal the Gore-tex on the left hand boot, and we knew we had our most deserving winner! All we can say is that it is a testament to Meindl’s build quality that they are still going.

So a huge congratulations to them both, Kevin will be getting a new pair of Burmas and Mary some goodies, but we have also sent a thank you to everyone who entered. Stay tuned for our next competition on facebook for the chance to win gear EVERY week this summer!

Pride of place we have here is a brand new North Face Doormat to make you the envy of all your neighbours or to take with you as the ultimate stylish accessory for your tent when welcoming you home after a hard day on the hill. We’ve combined this with a Victorinox Pen knife, Frisbee, Sit Mat and a base layer of your choice to the value of £30 from the site to help your Easter start with a bunny like spring.
