    Indeed, there is absolutely no information whatsoever and the list of vendors besides Sportpursuit isn't exactly reassuring. Which is not great considering that the price is basically that of a discounted Patagonia Torrentshell...

    Skogstad UK just got back to me and it's the first time they've been asked this question so they don't know but someone should go to the warehouse tomorrow and weigh one. A bit academic for me anyway as my size is gone across all colours anyway.

    Alpkit Cloudbase sleeping mat is 395g and £42 so the mat isn't too bad.

    Interesting: Skogstad UK sent someone to the warehouse to weigh one and said between 420 and 500 depending on size (M to L). They did say their scale wasn't really great for this though.

    Pity they don't seem to have the heavier outdry jackets still .Better specs and lighter for less money. And no dwr to wear off in a year and render the specs redundant.

    Wondering if someone can point me to (AliEx -I think) the tarp with beak that someone posted in the last month or so. They had pics high and low pitch and I'll be buggered if I can find it. Thought I book marked it but a bit of a dill. Ta

    A quick search for ‘tarp’ on Ali brought this one up. Plenty of other sellers with the same if this was the one you were after.

    @Chiseller TBH I know nothing about Pertex shield but I was drawn to the weight. Maybe they are selling them off cheap because of the reasons you set out. If I see an orange one for £30 I'll let you know ;)
