Wow long posts. But yours discussion showed me to be more open mind.
I will go to direct sport and I'will check first what they have. Online I see that they have some good brands is well. Salomons for example.

Gear / Re: Can anyone explain Pacer Poles to me

I like Pacers too.  One think though, if your shelter uses poles to put it up they can be a bit awkward given the way the end of the handle is offset from the rest of the pole.  They still work but not quite as well as normal poles.  That said they are better with my Tarptent Notch than they were with my SMD Skyscape Trekker.

I've looked at these a few times but to me they put the pole at the wrong angle to the ground. Maybe it's because I also do Nordic skiing but they make the pole far to up right and you need the pole far too short, they just don't work for me. Also not gripping the pole and just using the wrist loops has been ingrained in me for too long to go back having to hold them all the time. If there so good how come you don't see Cross country skiers using them?


How about this

John Macpherson; UK, North Pole Race - "I can say unreservedly that the Pacer Poles we used for the 2009 North Pole Race (450 Nautical miles) across the Ice were the single best piece of kit we took with us. I cannot recommend them highly enough
On a more practical note we experienced some of the terrible ice conditions in the arctic and despite personally breaking all my ski bindings (plus replacements) and both skis (no replacements were possible) the pacer poles not only never let us down but were bought home rather ceremoniously
"


Nordic enough for you?

I wish this had not been posted, just seen a jacket which I have recently purchased over 70 cheaper


Being a new comer to this outdoor pursuits lark. I must say I find the whole clothing and equipment purchase a bit of a minefield with constant and flash sales, price match ect you spend a lot of time looking for value, i.e. same item at the lowest price,


I have already made some poor purchases in either there is something better cheaper or not knowing what to get


Moon Raker


Everyone has paid for something and then seen it cheaper. Its part and parcel of life.You will get some good deals to make up for your losses, its swings and roundabouts.I've had some really bad waterproofs over the years.

Have you tried the infamous 'The Hidden Tearoom and Bistro' in Castleton ? It certainly gets some critical views on Trip Advisor https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g499576-d2518786-r151892774-The_Hidden_Tearoom_and_Bistro-Castleton_Hope_Valley_Peak_District_National_Park_.html.

I've certainly heard about the Hidden Tearoom and Bistro - there are plenty of alternatives at Castleton though.
