Glad to report that most of my gear has now ended up in the arms of friends in Cardiff.
I quite agree, collecting so much kit over the years, and never using it, was a bit pointless, far better letting others benefit from my folly.

:) Yes, the lightest weight is not always best.

22 grams, crikey, you will have the ultra lightweight police on here telling you off  ;)

We have boiled eggs for our breakfast when we are out camping. I wonder if beefy can come up with something for us to make toast.

News and Articles / Re: BBC4 - Iolo's Snowdonia
« Last post by Dyffryn Ardudwy on Today at 13:45:49 »
The final episode is the most interesting and thought provoking.
One of my favourite locations for peace and quiet, are the Northern Carneddau.
Iolo traverses them in the full depths of Winter, sheltering in the Foel Grach shelter to eat his sandwiches.

He also takes a shine to the Rhinogs, and one of his walks almost passes my front door.

Ive met him twice, once whilst helping with the organisation of the 2014 Lake Vyrnwy half marathon, and the other was at the International Snowdon race in Llanberis some years ago.

One of the nicest people you would want to meet, very down to earth, and a real gent.

A real credit to Wales.

Bus passes - just one example of our Dis-united Kingdom.
Eligibility by age varies betweenn England, Wales and Scotland and you can only use them in the country they are issued in :(

I wouldn't even pay that for what in effect is a 9l sac, but good to know you've at least bought something that doesn't just live in your wardrobes  O0

I picked mine up for 48 in Blacks, in Cardiff a few years ago.
The thing i like about it, is its almost infinite combinations of adjustments, so should fit just about anyones body contour.
It has three chest straps, which ive never come across in any other sack, and has three compartments, all with their own zips.
Why it has three fully adjustable chest straps i have no idea, but its amongst the most comfortable thing ive ever worn on my shoulders.

I think 48 represented excellent value, and it has sufficient capacity for a full set of waterproofs, Buffalo windshirt, and numerous other items, just enough capacity for a day out in the hills.

It usually retails for around 80 which i agree is a bit too much, so 48 was a keen price, especially when it came with a huge hydration bladder as well.

My 1st effort with 'lightweight' wire weighed 8 grams for the two pieces but I thought it would be a bit flimsy. With the thick (2mm) wire the two pieces weigh 22 grams
