Love at first pitch!
Too many wrinkles, try again
Tip: make sure to get the stakes in-line with the seams.
5 replacement strikers for Clipper lighters for £1.90 off Amazon. Each weighs 2g. About the length of a match. They make a nice fat spark and are a great UL lighter for gas and liquid fuel stoves.
@paul 's delivery arrived while I was in Kernow, luckily it was light and small so it fit into mailbox. Large peg pouch which fits my Eastons, Lawsons (from Valley & Peak) & carbons nicely.
I have a feeling Paul's DCF pouches might be addictive, organisation without a big weight penalty...
Also got a bag for my Toaks 650. As an unexpected bonus, I also got the lantern leds, what are best practices for using it?
Defo the nicest peg bag out there - I've got the lime green - takes my large peg load plus spare guys easily and the zipper arrangement makes it very user friendly.
The LEDs can be wrapped around your tent pole buddy. Give quite a lot of light. I don't use them in my lanterns as they have specific units. I just stumbled across a stray set of those when I was packing your order. We wrap them round the mirror in the lounge at Christmas
Well that explains it... because I thought that I accidentally ordered the lantern and put the led inside the Toaks bag and lit it up. Your suggestion makes more sense...
The sun's out, I might go and have another go. I washed my Tyvek a couple of times last night, I might forgive it for being 200g now it doesn't sound like a cross between paper rustling and cymbals crashing. Keep my knees dry
Aegismax down balaclava, £12 on eBay.....12 days delivery!
Quality looks good, weight 77g (+3g bag), should keep the head toasty in bed this winter.
Only issue is that it's definitely a bit on the large size for me.
I think I'll have to do some tailoring.
Never come across someone who didn't find those a little large. They are quite warm though.
I can easily cinch up the face 'aperture' to zero.....warm but a bit difficult to breathe.
Because Im still a weak minded fool like everyone else....
Mine came today, very nice
Mine's just cleared Customs
yeah but you’re also a slow weak minded fool. Most of us were weak minded long before you.
Reading this on my phone, at first I thought you had chopped it in half. And then realised your ruler is the same colour as your floor.
Mines arrived, first things first in true trek-lite fashion, replace the heavier strap with shock-cord.
Just had a pair of Salomon XA Pro 3D Wide shoes delivered. These are to replace my worn out normal width X-ultras. Both are size 11.
As you can see the old normal width ones and wider than the new wide ones. I've inspected them carefully and there's nothing in the structure of the shoes that I can see that would explain this. Unfortunately they will have to be returned.
Two pairs of gloves from Rab. A pair of Vapour-rise with a fake leather palm and a sort of pertex back there quite light. The other pair are Velocity gloves, leather palms and stretchy softshell backs so should be warmer than the Vapour-rise ones. I got them with cross country skiing in mind, hence the leather palms. They're both XL but the Vapour-rise are a better fit and the right Velocity glove fits better than the left.

Coincidentally I just bought the Soto Amicus w/igniter, tried to buy it on Kong as they have the cheapest advertised price I could see, but it wouldn't let me add delivery, so went to rock and run, they added a £5 discount voucher to the sale price and i ended up with it delivered for £29, happy with that.
Taiga 480 with toray fabric, 900 cuin and widened by 22 cm.
