    okay this looks to be deeply unappreciated. I'll find something else.

    @Clare if you're willing to post the safety light to France, I'll gladly take it off your hands. I know that's not quite how the PIF works but I'm happy to cover the extra cost of postage as it is quite a bit more than sending in the UK.

    Ill pay the postage! I’ve been meaning to find something else since my offerings have ground the thread to a standstill and you’re saving me. Do you want any of the other bits? PM me your address.

    Just the light will be fine. PM incoming.

    Take your pick:

    1. Grid fleece balaclava (63 gr). This is a large size that it a nice relaxed fit on my head (59-60) and should also fit the biggest heads, maybe even @Gadget. Measured flat along that upper seam, it is 27cm relaxed and 33 stretched. This is nicely articulated and can be worn around the neck to be pulled over the head as needed. Comes in a fetching coyote brown colour. This one is spare as I replaced the contents of a lost package only for it to turn up eons later.

    2. Long discontinued Decathlon Helium windshirt in size XL (59 cm from pit to pit). 122 gr, the DWR was still OK last time I checked (which was after I washed it, gave it a spin in the drier and put it away) but it'll do a better job at fending off the wind than protecting you from anything but drizzle. There's plenty of orange and the two-tone colour scheme looks like it was designed by someone from Paramo moonlighting for Decathlon.

    3. Snow Peak titanium frying pan / lid. Perfect for your hillside morning fry up (if you are brave enough to fry anything in titanium). Smaller one is 12.5 cm across and weight 54 gr and the larger one 14.5 cm and 64 gr (they come from the Trek 900 and Trek 1400 pots respectively). As new condition, never used as frying pans and I think I've only ever used the larger one as a lid once.

    There's little difference in cost between posting one or all four items so you can have as many as you like.

    It might as well have all of it, my OH loves orange (like a certain carnivor we all know), the hat will fit him (big head) and the pans are for me (camp fry up).

    Picked up package this morning, really pleased with everything, OH likes the windshirt, the balaclava actually fits my small head well enough and the pans are great, many thanks!

    Any details on the inner Taz?

    I’m guessing that’s on offer?

    Can i offer stuff without taking what’s currently on offer? Or does it confused the system?

    (Will delete if necessary)

    I have a pair of the well reviewed waterproof showa 281 gloves in size S.

    I mindlessly purchased the wrong sized, because I’m normally small in everything. I have smaller hands than any adult male I’ve met, I can *just* squeeze them on.

    Probably more suited to a child, or an adult with very very petite hands.

    As in what size small? I usually wear a 6 1/2 in gloves but would potentially want to wear these over another pair if they aren't insulated
  22. Mole

    Mole Thru Hiker

    These come up somewhat small to size.

    I usually take size XL/10 gloves and these showa are an ok fit, fingers a little short, but I can't fit anything comfortably under them. A liner glove fits but not if I want to bend my fingers much.

    I also have a few cuben patches and a mesh pocket stitched to so some cuben tape backing - I do not own a cuben shelter anymore.

    Good morning, I'm a bit simple so may need some help here... I could use some Cuban patches to repair my 35l dry bag or for emergency use for my rain kilt.
    It's the mesh pocket that has me confused... Is it a small mesh pocket that is to be bonded to Cuban? Could I bond it to a Cuban hip pocket or similar?

    I would like to take the offer of patches and pocket if this is the case?
