    When you said you'd lost weight I thought it was from exercise not lipo :)

    I've one of the 'not a helinox at all' chairs winging itself from sunny China :D

    But it's intended arrival is known about rather than not a secrete and discrete item, perhaps it shouldn't be mentioned here??? :D

    Devold lightweight wool base layers; boxers and zip neck top.
    A leaky pair of Sealskinz mid length socks.
    Chinese titanium gas stove, waiting for it to turn up. Apparently 32g and the lightest in the world. Review to follow when it turns up. ( Just had to buy it again because the seller hadn't shipped it. Found one on the bay for £20 delivered)

    Alt berg defender boots - really lightweight for a high leg leather boot, bought for work really with no intention of using them up in the hills but I can see them becoming my main hiking boots, they're actually lighter than the ankle length zamberlans that I usually use and they have the added bonus of stopping Pete from wincing when following me downhill :)
