    Time to rename this the Official "Pay It Back And Forth" thread. Maybe you should just have a meet up in Stourton or something... ;)

    Aye, I have a suggested a hiking day. Anyone else West Yorks based up for a ramble along the Calderdale skyline?

    I'll have another rummage in the gear boxes, and hold it back until the vultures are circling so we can enjoy the fun.

    OK, next up. A pair of used-once Gents size L WPB lightweight Regatta overtrews. No holes, rips or tears. No side zips to knacker, pop studs at bottom. I've upsized to XL for a bit more leg length, but they're not shorties. 167g in the stuff sack on my scales.

    Torch arrived this morning. Treated to some fresh Panasonic alkalines, a 2mm braided lanyard and a tiny spot of silicone grease on the focus ring. A new favourite thing. Thanks again.

    EDIT to add; if there's no call for the overtrews by tomorrow night I'll find something else.

    OK, let's try this instead. Coleman F1 Lite gas lantern. Warms a tent up quick while providing illumination. A thrifty 88g. Unused in the box with spare mantle and instructions.

    Ok, finally had time to rummage through my stuff and have these 3 lots for offer. 15240499432391564640371.jpg 15240503362511164347472.jpg 15240504175671305835223.jpg

    1st is a selection of pots, dropper bottles, 2 x Coghlans squeeze tubes, Light My Fire collapsible cup, Evernew 1.5l bladder and a Sawyer Squeeze bag, cleaning syringe and I think the grey "straw" came with it too but not sure.

    All unused as far as I recall. I won't pass on the Sawyer mini filter itself as I can't guarantee it's been kept properly but maybe the bits are of use to someone. All can go as a job lot.

    2nd a pair of Trekmates Goretex Ankle Gaiters, size- One Size.

    These have a bit of wear but still in good condition.

    3rd, a bag of Tyvek Overshoes. No idea how many are left but there is a LOT! Size 42-46.

    If no interest I'll keep looking for other stuff that might be of use to folks.

    Im surprised that first bundle hasnt gone, lots of useful bits in there. I think a lot of folk dont take stuff as they fear they dont have anything to offer thats swanky enough but thats not the point of the thread. id just leave it up until it gets taken. Its not a race :)

    The Tyvek boots were useful to go over my down boots for forays into the night from my tent but could only seem to get them in bulk!

    Cool, will leave it up a bit.. have some LED USB lights I can add in too... pics later

    Lets try and get this moving again, if still on offer I will take the bottles.

    On offer will be either the Knot bug bivy I offered before or an Alpkit Numo/Kumo sleeping mat, I cannot remember which model it is.

    Still south matey, we hope to get the keys to our place in Scotland in two to three weeks now :)

    I’ll post a pic of the sleeping pad with weight in a while, I can’t work out which model it is so it will be called ‘Black Alpkit Sleeping Pad’ non insulated, weight tbc ;-)
