    I instantly love the fit and feel...but I'll do a review or a reply once I've done some wet and dry mileage...if it dries quicker than a rab Boreas top , I'll be quite happy.

    QOR Neoshell. New brand in USA. Was a reasonable £150 and its got a relaxed fit to go with my relaxed look :D not hugely light at 500g.

    Some more maps to add to my collection...


    Further fine-tuning of my Jotunheimen traverse.

    1:50 000 scale, printed on tyvek; should last longer then my other maps (looking at you, French IGN-maps...).

    The back of the maps are not wasted and are full of information. Too bad my Norwegian is non-existent.

    Planning is just so much fun. Either way, looking forward to July 30th...

    I'm an injinji convert, I switched to them on my failed SUW last year and have used them ever since. For somebody who can't cope with things between my toes (I can't wear flip flops) I actually find them really comfy.

    MSR plate, not titanium but the correct dimensions, not too heavy and not expensive. Hopefully does the job.

    OMM contour hoody, hmm...
    Not sure if I realised it had a hood when I ordered it. XL size (biggest OMM do this in) could act as a good motivator to loose some weight (not from my pack) as it's as snug as a Spandex gimp suit at the moment!

    Ordered today for delivery tomorrow: helinox chair zero... Decided I would give one a try and it may make the various meets this year more comfortable.
    Anyone tried one of these? @gixer is your a "zero" or a "one "

    I have one. It's comfortable enough. Never taken it out, another one of my white Elephants.

    I had one, never got used. if weather is good enough to be sitting out i just recline on my kip mat

    Aye mine is the Zero

    As you saw last year i thought it was surprisingly comfortable.
    Wouldn't want to move around much when seated, but it holds my just under 90kg comfortably.

    Mine comes in at 511g total or 493g without the stuff sack

    For me i miss some back support once i've set up camp

    The Big Agnes Cyclone SL Chair Kit looks good at 160g, have been tempted a few times with those types of chair kits.
    My worry is, that with my luck i'll puncture my sleep mat, or get it covered in sloppy sheep poo that'll stink my tent out for the rest of the trip.

    T'other thing is, i'd need to get my sleep mat out for midday stops, which knackers up my packing routine.
    With the chair, i just roll it up and stick it in a side pocket.

    Not sure if i'll take the chair the first 2 days cause there is a fair bit of ascent, if i'm not completely knackered by day 3 i'll take it to the meet though

    That big Agnes looks interesting, certainly light for that type.
    I am still a bit dubious of using my sleep mat though, I am sure I will over inflate it and burst a seam or something.

    When I have time I will knock up a tyvek, carbon & ccf myog chair I have been thinking of. It should come in around the 200g but will only offer back support and no elevation.
