Save yourself some weight and use your sleeping bag  O0
Or do you mean having a quilt instead of a bag?

I compared it to water to go but it was a bit of a rip off having to change the filter every 3 months which are not cheap really
We've been using our Sawyer minis for over 2 years now, and probably use them more than most,
They are still filtering water, I'd say that was value for money, and I don't mind waiting a few mins to get the clean water
Although as April said, I've always got half a litre ready to drink   :)

You can read the article on the BBCs Welsh news, or even better, the North Wales daily Post.
Iwan Pritchard Huws or Hughes in English, was a drummer for the Gwynedd Welsh rock band "Yucatan" and he lived in the Dyffryn Nantlle valley.

He was a very keen walker, and informed his friends and relatives, that he was visiting Tryfan's North Ridge, early last Sunday.
According to Ogwen MR, it took some time to locate his whereabouts, but its believed he fell or came to grief whilst climbing up Tryfan"s North ridge.

A considerable number of Mountain rescue team members, spent hours looking for him, when an alarm was raised by worried family members, that Iwan had not returned, and not until late on Monday, was his body discovered.

Its always with regret that we read these far too numerous reports of people coming to grief on Tryfan.

Frustrating wasn't it April - get Beefy to do it next year - the videoing, although would he be up for the race?

 ;D When I mentioned the Spine Race to him before I'm sure he said something like "utter madness"  :)

Edited to add - No beefy actually said "he is a madman" when I said Pavel had only stopped for a few minutes at the Auchope Hut  ;D
