    A climbing pack - not made for carrying weight on the hips, by the look of how high it rides (short back).

    Shoulder straps look awful thin?

    personally i am just pleased to see these fabrics becoming more mainstream and for manufacturers to finally accept that we don't want a 2kg pack just to carry 30-40L.
    i dont think i will be buying one but it does bode well for the future.

    any company embracing a lightweight ethos is good in my book.
    :)

    but then i had high hopes when montane did their hyper tour (or whatever they called their cuben pack) but haven't noticed anything else in cuben from them since

    Review of the Rab Alpha Flash Jacket here

    Be interested to see what comes of this new Polartec Powerfill insulation. CLO values are supposably comparable with the rest of the market, compete with Apex?...

    No I have an imminent big birthday and decided to keep it for then rather than get a shed load of things I didn't ask for.

    To be honest, you'll get more value from that review than any half hearted tried once in the garden review I can provide.:oops:

    ^^^ Blurb ….. "boils 1L in 3.5mins" - but pot volume quoted as 0.75L ??? :wacky:
    - Do they balance the extra 0.25L somewhere above the pot using sky hooks ?? :whistling:.


    …. or is it just that if you use a different pot the stove will boil …..etc.etc. Poor presentation of Info.
