Big changes to our Gear Pages have been rolled out this week, creating a more attractive and user-friendly browsing experience. Our developers have been working away behind the scenes to spruce up the look, and to make finding a particular item that bit smoother and more intuitive. We're really pleased with the result, and at the risk of blowing our own trumpet we hope you like it too!
The main Gear page on both UKC and UKH now has a clearer layout, with bigger, bolder thumbnails. The Latest Reviews across all product categories come top, followed by the Latest News - announcements direct from manufacturers.
The search by product category has been refined, with the addition of many new sub-headings. As an example, let's say you're looking for softshell reviews. Simply scan along our Categories bar to Clothing, then scroll through the drop-down menu. In the Softshell sub-section you'll find a Featured Review, a montage of all the relevant Latest Reviews, and below that the Latest News from brands relating to softshells.
Items can be categorised twice - for instance, softshell and legwear or Ice Axes and Review Compilations (see example left)
And as well as being listed under their appropriate categories, all the Comparison Reviews can now be seen grouped together here
Each brand now has its own page too, making it easier for people with specific preferences to search their favourites e.g. Rockfax
On the gear pages, adverts and deals are now brand-specific too.
