    I might have got 79g mixed up with another product... But I haven't got the 4oz shipping weight mixed up... So that's 113- un needed tie outs I reckon under 100g then (I know I didn't suggest this at the time of posting, but I could if I wanted) trim it to a true rectangle, add a flash of tape and I reckon in an argument I could get it to the 79g lol....
    On a serious note... At 113 I'm happy and it's still cheaper than what I paid from wicks for polycro... And lighter

    I think the one I lost was around that height but it was really lite. No its alright ill find one somewhere. Thank you anyway very generous. I have e-mailed vango with the scenario. Think I left it on the larger island on thirlmere last summer. so If anyone happens to be on that Island. Silver pole.

    It beggers belief... it's just sloppy on their part. They could have an amazing thing going but it seems we are missing a reliable uk cottage scene.

    Finished up with mmosjaw being correct... So I stand corrected... I've managed to get it down to 181g which for the size and practicality, I will shoulder until I get something as practical and light... Maybe have to try some of that polycro for patio doors... I've found that even polycro, unless it's the bare minimum, can be deceivingly heavy for little longevity.. (cost)
    I posted the reply in another thread... I got part shafted with bargain orders from snow + rock... Finished up with one out of t

    Still cheaper than ext tex with the 25%off, but they've lost themselves a repeat customer for the sake of 40g of down. Make your bed ....

    That's a shame, I used to call in quite a bit when I lived over Keighley way. I've still got my early 90's Whisperlite and Blacklite pan set

    Well I ended up ordering one of these pans from Japan and and was very impressed when it turned up today! Only a week or so door to door, no vat, no duty :) what a bargain!

    Alas I will have to wait till my birthday in April to use it and I also want to get a Ti cone to go with it.

    Various versions of the Neoair Xlite on Massdrop. Customs fees will need factoring in but it looks as if it'll still work out a reasonable price.
