    Cheers @edh In the length wise are they same size...I am 10.5 UK in wildcats with some room...would 10.5 UK Cascadias work

    I see liner falling apart on Sportivas...I thought its me only but obviously their liner is way to fragile for the bash these shoes are made to take...

    They are pretty much the same as far as I can discern.

    The heel cup (inside) wears through after a hundred + miles in mine; the Cascadias....not yet on 600 miles from one pair.

    I was going to mention that honest, but only after snaffling the best bargains first...:whistling:
    There were some minimus jackets that I was hoping would go down to £160 but alas they all sold before I could get through.

    Sportpursuit has the Columbia OutDry Ex Featherweight Jacket Men's and Women's at £75 and £85 respectively. Limited sizes but it's the first time I've seen these come up on offer.

    I can't justify another waterproof, especially as we try to avoid rainy weather, but the Ex Featherweight caught my attention in this thread and this thread on BPL.

    I just read through that thread again. Watched the diy hh test. Had a go with my recently bought £15 decathlon hooded windshirt. Came out at over 300mm and a simple breath test makes me think if anything it has a slightly higher cfm than my paramo enduro windproof. Think Paramount is ~5 cfm. Makes it a potential candidate for his Paramo type wpb system. Will try it with my montane allez fleece.

    Review makes the dwr sound ineffective, wish they'd make something like that in Epic.

    Sports shoes have 40% off inov8 roclite 315. Tramplite seems very happy with them. Used them for his lakes trip, 1100+km and they still looked good. Think the mesh has kevlar in. Down sides, heard reports that it doesn't breath well, the mesh doesn't go down to the footbed like on the 305/ 325 so they won't drain as well. Think its just the upper that's different. My 325 are very comfy but I have to go up 1.5-2 sizes. I have the 325 in 11(fractionally too small) and 12 (fractionally too big) and typically they don't have 11.5.
    This assumes the 315 is the same sizing as the 325.
    We'll see Tuesday.
