"Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was"

Dag Hammarskjöld

"It’s always further than it looks. It’s always taller than it looks. And it’s always harder than it looks"


"So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to live. That is what life means and what life is for.”

George Mallory

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”

T.E. Lawrence

Henri Lloyd Freedom Jacket: Review

This year my Henri Lloyd jacket I’d had since I was 16 needed an upgrade. The jacket itself is still in almost perfect condition (somehow) but the sleeves were a little too short! I bought the Henri Lloyd Freedom Jacket, after lots of review trawling, but also because my brother uses it as a professional yacht skipper, which is always a good recommendation!
