Title: BARGAIN THREAD
Post by: - Dave - on 14:46:50, 28/06/16
I'll attempt to start of something that was pretty popular on another forum I post on - a bargains thread. If you see something on your travels across the internet that you think is a good deal, why not post it here to let others know? It doesn't have to be limited to clothing either.

I'll kick off:

Taunton Leisure (https://www.tauntonleisure.com/rab-sale/c765) currently have a deal on some Rab gear including the following:

Quest fleece - £25
Womens VR Lite - £65
Bergen jacket - £115
Strata Hoody - £110

I also noticed my nearest TK Maxx had some Montane gear in at reasonable prices including the Rock Guide jacket and Astro Ascent waterproof trousers

The finest bargain ive ever encountered, was when competing in the Rhyader Round the Lakes 20 road race, back in 1992.
Running Bear, the outdoor adventure sports company, had around five hundred seconds Helly Hansen thermal tops and leggings for sale, all for a £5 a go.

I bought six of them, and on inspection, cannot find any flaw or manufacturing fault with them.

Once people knew what was going on, they were sold out incredibly quickly.
Title: Salomon Mens Quest 4D GTX @ £20 + £4.99 Postage
Post by: kinkyboots on 14:10:32, 07/07/16
Salomon Mens Quest 4D GTX with some sizes showing as £20.00 + £4.99 postage instead of the usual £124.99.

Obviously a misprice but worth a punt if you end up getting them delivered.

Looks like the fun's over and Field and Trek have either spotted the surge in sales or been informed of their error and pulled them.

It certainly is. But if you're already a regular dash4it customer JUL40 as a discount code sounds a bit better than the reality.

Dash4it are often the best place to get Victorinox knives and other accessories - 30% discount is normal, occasionally slightly more:

Thanks Glyno, I just used this and got the 40% discount on OL 9 (realising it was an increase on the original 35% - but why not !). I've had some from Above and Beyond and they were 35% for the same map. May as well save another 45p - "many a mickle maks a muckle" as they say.

My past experience of gumtree would suggest that possession is nine tenths of the law and the sooner your folks can hand over the cash and collect it the better if only to stop the possibility of someone else offering more and the seller accepting which has happened to me on a couple of occasions.

Being gazumped on Gumtree happened to me earlier this week. I'd seen a really good rucksack and exchanged several e-mails and it suddenly went quiet: as I was expecting a response (which wasn't forthcoming) I mailed again - only to receive an apologetic reply that it had been sold to somebody else.

You could always get your dad to open it to check the contents and to look for any obvious signs of damage to the material, zips, the main pole, the 2 short end poles etc. and to count the pegs.

The number of side doors will tell you roughly how old it is. 1 door is pre 2015. 2 doors from 2015 onwards.

Pre 2015 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WB6Dm2KPy8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WB6Dm2KPy8)

2015 Onwards https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-ZL0AdMYHQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-ZL0AdMYHQ)

If it's not OK it's a big enough bargain at that price to be able to replace a missing peg or two. Anything major like damaged material, zip or broken pole and I suppose you could return it for your cash back.

This very long thread might be worth a flick through for some hints and tips http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/forum/gear/zephyros-owners-thread/46381.html (http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/forum/gear/zephyros-owners-thread/46381.html) and there's plenty of info, reviews and videos on the internet.

They went to a local Scout group (where I know the Scout leader very well) the very next day, who were more than pleased with the bargain purchase.

They are simply one of the best pairs of approach shoes I've ever owned and after 6 years of constant use they are still going strong (my first pair still get used in the garden too!).

    They're selling Granite Gear Campus packs in TK MAXX. 27L and 30L I think.


    They have three models, ranging from 20 to 30 quid.


    They're laptop/hiking bag combos.


    They're quite heavy for the capacity, but Granite Gear have a good reputation for ultra light hiking packs and packs in general.


    Only got the one on the website though.


    Actually, I think there might be a couple of different models in another store I went in, but not sure. They're all part of the Campus range.


    I might pop in again when I've got more money and pick up one of the lighter 27L £20 ones, with less padding.

    I just love the way all these manufacturers put an ice-axe loop on their packs  .... As if !!
    Also noticeable is the diamond shaped leather patch that has two parallel slots - found centre/middle of packs. Again this is a nod to the mountaineering packs that had this detail through which was threaded a strap that held the top of the ice-axe in place.
    Yet again a totally superfluous detail when the pack is barely big enough to carry a spare pair of undies ....... Ah well, that's marketing for you  :P

    Don't see why not.

    Bridgedale MerinoFusion Trekkers contain only 27% Merino Wool and Bridgedale MerinoFusion Trails even less at only 19% Merino Wool with the rest made up of a combination of other fibres - although I suppose the inclusion of the word Fusion in the name does help. At less than £1.50 per pair it maybe a gamble worth taking?

    I've gone for the thinner Everyday socks, as I prefer to double up with pairs of thinner socks.


    Apparently those ones have 66% Marino wool, but what the ebay seller says is different to what the Ulvang website says.


    There's two different pictures for the Everyday socks in fact, and no such thing as an Ulvang Everyday socks, although the description of some socks does say "everyday"


    The grey pic of the "Everyday" socks on Ebay, seems to be the Ultra liner socks, which actually have 48% merino wool.


    We'll see when they arrive anyway.

    My Ulvang Socks have arrived.


    I ordered these ones, but they don't look like the socks pictured, and there is no such thing as an "Ulvang Everyday" sock.


    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-Pairs-Ulvang-Merino-Wool-Everyday-Socks-only-6-99-free-post-to-UK-/262124872590


    I can't find the exact sock anywhere, but they seem like the Ulvang Special/Spesial socks, but with different colour variations, and the word "Spesial" isn't on them.


    The Ulvang website lists them as a medium thickness sock, and I'd say that's about right. They do feel like an everyday sock in thickness.


    There is no L for left, or R for right on the socks, although the Ulvang branding is on the right side of every sock, like they are all R's.


    However, there is no specific R shape to the toe area, so you can wear any sock on any foot.


    As for defects, there's nothing in the main areas that could cause problems.


    I've only examined one pair in detail and there was a tiny bit of loose thread by a cuff, but looking at them they seem fine tbh.


    What's odd is that the toe seam is on the underside, instead of the top side.


    The seem is on the outside to prevent rubbing, but I'd preferred it on the top of the toes, as I think it might cause rubbing on the underside. Saying that, the seem should fit between the curved bit between the toes and foot if they fit right, eliminating any rubbing.


    I've never had any Merino wool based products before, and it'll be interesting to see if they make me itch, as I can feel why some people would find some Merino wool itchy.


    Anyway, if they are pretty much the Special/Spesial Ulvang sock, just with a slightly different cosmetic look, they have 60% Merino wool.


    They definitely feel Merino woolie anyway.  :P

    @ Cairncamper - Thanks for the update on the Everyday variety.

    For £1.16 per pair just count yourself lucky that they've even got a hole to put your foot in and them bothering to stitch up the other end is just a bonus.  ;D ;D ;D

    On a more serious note from what I've seen posted elsewhere Ulvang have an excellent reputation.

    I just need someone to report back on the Walking/Hiking variety before I decide whether to buy some myself. The problem is I've already got a drawer full of walking socks and don't really need any more. ;)


     
    Title: Re: BARGAIN THREAD
    Post by: forgotmyoldpassword on 12:50:26, 01/11/16
    I bought a set of those ages ago, I must admit I was sceptical whether they'd be legitimate Ulvang socks, as the other gear I have from Ulvang is high quality, very warm and quite expensive compared to the UK gear market.  If they were seconds, I expected them to be damaged.  That said, at just over £1 a pair I figured I'd take them regardless and give them a go.


    The socks themselves feel like a merino/synth blend, the fibers are finely woven compared to other brands and have venting areas on the topside of the foot.  I did find them a little small, as I bought the largest size they do, however I do have size 14 feet so I am used to needing to buy the largest available - so if you are between sizes I'd suggest the next bracket.  I use them as summer hiking socks, or off-season liner socks due to them being thicker than the usual chunky socks I prefer then.  I've not had any blisters from any specific location when using those over others.  Like Cairncamper, I didn't find any issues with the 'L' and 'R' socks, they seem to fit regardless.  No damage to the socks, either.


    The fact is compared to the top-end Bridgedales, or even original Ulvang socks I bought in Norway, I'd use these as a second choice - but using them as 'cheap' liner socks has worked well.

    Review of the 6 Pairs Ulvang Merino Wool  Hiking/Walking Socks I ordered and received from this post:-

    http://www.walkingforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=32782.msg482051#msg482051 (http://www.walkingforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=32782.msg482051#msg482051)

    The nearest equivalent sock I would compare them to would be the Bridgedale MerinoFusion Trail which sell for £12 - £14 per pair - thicker padded underfoot cushioning with thinner panels on the top to aid ventilation and wicking, an ideal sock for the warmer weather but also good if you just prefer wearing a thinner sock.

    Absolutely no faults found although I have had to trim a few loose ends off inside each sock but I've had to that with Bridgedale socks as well so no problem there.

    At only £1.42 per pair they offer unbeatable value for the money so grab some while you can.

    Btw, 2015 Rab Flashpoint jackets in L, XL or XXL at Ultimate Outdoors for £99  :o


    Tried one on the other week when they were £165.


    Loved the fit and feel of it.


    It's a slim fit jacket, so for me I'd have gone for an XXL after trying on a XL.


    For the standard fit Latok Alpine I tried on, I'd have gone for the XL.


    Anyway, the 2015 version uses Rab's own 3 layer Flashpoint material, which makes the jacket lighter than the 2016 model, which uses 3 Layer Pertex Shield +.


    The Flashpoints are regarded as excellent lightweight 3 Layer jackets.


    Unfortunately £99 is still too much for me, otherwise I'd have snapped one of these up!

    I needed a couple of baselayers so this time decided to give Bamboo a try instead of Merino wool. I didn't want any more synthetic types, just too stinky! The brand is 'Nature Bound', long sleeved half zip, medium for £29.98 each from Craigdon Sports, Edinburgh via the Amazon site. I bought two and they charged me, including delivery £35.97 total!

    I tried one today, running around Farlington Marshes, a couple of miles on the flat, here in Portsmouth, the baselayer felt good. The material feels cosy, my sweat dried quickly, I didn't feel cold and I didn't stink. I'm hopeful that they might be just what I'm looking for? Time will tell.

    I bought a couple of Bamboo long sleeved baselayers recently and wore them in Spain for a week, some chilly days, two were rather hot! They are very comfortable, the fabric is soft to the skin and they seemed to work well. My only disappointment was that after a good sweat they seemed to take a while to dry. They also took a longish time to dry after washing. For me, I think too long if I'm hiking and on the move.

    I ordered half zips with a high collar, not really to my liking but useful I think will be OK when its cold.

    I like how they call a 25 liter pack that weighs 1.2 kg, lightweight.


    Probably why they knocked the price down so much.


    My 65 litre pack that cost £34 only weighs 1.4 kg.


    That packs far too heavy for it's capacity.

    Bought mine for a little less than RRP in the Keswick shop a week or two before the sale was announced  ::) . Was in the Shrewsbury shop today chatting with the assistant and when he found out about my purchase he said 'Hang on a minute' and disappeared into the back. He returned to let me know that they'd let me have my jacket at the sale price and credited me the difference against today's purchases. Excellent customer service from Rohan! And a really well spec'd jacket, even at full price. Snazzy colour too  :D

    Also Helly Hansen waterproof jackets and trousers at a keen price. Don't really see the jackets as mountain wear but the trousers could be useful.

    Ordered these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262757924831 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262757924831)

    6 Pairs Merino Wool Helly Hansen Comfort Hiking Socks only £8.49 free post to UK

    Will feed back when they arrive!

    I ordered these as I thought they would be a bit thinner and so more versatile than some of these bulk buy socks. Here are my thoughts:
    - They have padding on the key contact points but little up the ankle and on top of the foot.
    - Comfortable to wear in shoes and I have done 15 miles in a pair in lightweight boots with no problems.
    - Despite being quite thin they are warm, so probably only useful over the winter. Must be the combination of the synthetic element and the merino.
    - Do not get too smelly so fine for several days.
    - No sign of any manufacturing flaws in the two pairs I have worn.
    - They are OK after washing but too early to say how they will wear.
    From other posts on this thread it seems that HH manufacture workmens clothes and I suspect this is where these fit. At this price they are good value, but are not what I would call "proper" walking socks.
    Title: Re: BARGAIN THREAD
    Post by: MikeW on 20:15:57, 22/01/17
    I bought a pack of 6 of these after seeing the original post here.
    I wore them a few times then ordered another pack of 6.
    Not found any flaws so far. Some of the pairs from the first pack I bought have been worn for a day in the mountains and washed 3 or 4 times now.
    They'd make good ski socks too.
    Any seams are soft and well covered by the internal padding unlike many wool 'walking socks'.
    Just a pity they are only available in my size in that light blue colour.
    HH make some good quality outdoor gear of all kinds - ski gear, base layers etc. I'd have a lot more of their gear if they had an outlet where I could try stuff on anywhere near me.
    They do also make outdoor work gear.

    No need to have a thrombie! It's your choice but as I explained it's a members only club and you've got to register to join to have access to the available deals - it's not black magic or voodoo and they're not trying to steal your identity. The only possible downside is the sales emails and you have the option to either reduce their frequency or totally unsubscribe from them at any time and still remain a member.

    I think that one sentence explains why you need to become a member to see what's available. It also shows what a huge markup/profit margin there is on some of this outdoor gear and there is obviously plenty of room for manoevre left for SportPursuit to still be making a profit.

    Haven't got a clue re Facebook etc as I don't use any of the social media sites. The fact remains that you can't get anywhere near, match or beat the £149.99 price on that jacket anywhere else at the moment and if you don't want one then that's fine.

    And this is appreciated  O0 Just pointing out that it's a strange way of running a business.

    If you walked down the High Street and went to walk into a shop and someone said you can't come in to have a look until you sign up and give them your details, you probably would ignore the shop and go elsewhere.

    No one's having a go or wanting an argument...the prices might be great but I think most people would like to see their products before joining and giving their details to a website most won't have heard off.

    The delivery date to you is down to the way they operate. They agree a price with a supplier then hold a flash sale for the item for a limited period of time. When the flash sale ends they place one single bulk order with the supplier for delivery to their warehouse covering all the orders they have received during the flash sale. When the bulk order is delivered from the supplier they finally split the order down and post out the individual orders. The end date of the flash sale and an estimated dispatch date is clearly shown on every item's webpage. The estimated dispatch date is usually anywhere between 2 to 4 weeks after the end of the flash sale depending on where the supplier is located in the world. This is also clearly explained in their FAQ's.

    I know this is a Bargain thread but my contribution is to suggest an item which is NOT a bargain. I went to the shop, Trespass and they were and still are selling long sleeved merino wool baselayers, priced down they claim, from over £50 to £25, or thereabouts. I bought one but wished I hadn't! The merino wool is rough on the skin even after four washes, the 'small' size I bought for me is really a 'medium and threads are now becoming undone around the wrist and hip areas. When I compare it against my bamboo baselayer it does not stand up for the claims made about merino wool. So for me, a very poor buy!

    Exactly this.  Have used them before, their customer service is decent, however don't buy anything from them you need in the next few days, they don't operate like that.


    I've also found their descriptions have gotten rather lazy as they are expanding, and some of the technical information on products is missing.  Beforehand I actually liked using them as they had a good product team who put all that information up without having to research it.

    You are correct but they may have sat on a dealers shelf for a long time unsold or even in the owners cupboard unworn.

    I got the Cobra  to use a my lightweight summer pack and it is certainly lightweight but unfortunately it is sweaty back central...it doesn't have the airflow gap of my AirZone or Freeflow packs but if you can ive with a bit of a 'glow' around your back it is a well made bit of kit. Not sure I would buy if I had my time again though....

    40% Off RRP On All OS Maps from dash4it.co.uk

    Got an email from dash4it....

    Enjoy an incredible 40% off RRP on all OS maps by applying code DISC40 at the online checkout until Sunday 12th March.

    This means a standard paper OS Explorer or OS Landranger map costs just £5.39. And if it looks like rain, the Active (waterproof) versions are only £8.99.

    Have been buying these for a while now and using them for lunch on day hikes.  Perfect portion size and very tasty too, I normally add one of the pouches of ready to wok noodles to them.  Poundland in Wallsend only ever hs the Spicy Chilli and Meatballs varietys in so think it must be a national thing. 

     I believe Morrisons do the whole range and have been planning to get around to checking it out, can't see them being as cheap as Poundland but would be nice to get a couple of the others just for variance.

    That Hanwag boot looks very similar to my Lowa Renegades. I wonder if there is any connection between the two companies.


    All I know about them is the following piece of trivia.
    Two brothers, Hans and Lothair Wagner were born into a Bavarian boot making family. They entered the family business, learnt their trade, rose up through the ranks and went on to successfully manage the business until they had a falling out and went their separate ways.


    Hans Wagner set up his own company called Hanwag.
    Lothair Wagner set up his own company called LOWA.[/size]

    Visited Milletts today and bought :-

    Two pairs of Peter Storm trousers for £10 each. Quite thin but if they're windproof they will suit me fine. If not, they seem ok to use daily.

    Two OS Explorer Maps (Dark Peak and White Peak) at £5.40 each which is way cheaper than the normal £8.99 I see everywhere else. They include a digital download but looking at the reviews on Google Play of the OS software, I think I'll not bother with that option!

    This Milletts was in Bakewell but I think these offers are available at all Milletts and Blacks shops - both of which I believe are owned by JD.

In the past I've seen discounts for Keene walking shoes, a good rucksack, a Montane fleece and Snugpak Hoodie (which is superb btw) all of which I've been wearing on top of Bamford Edge this morning.

    Just an update on this.

    I can never resist a bargain so I bought some whilst the 5% off offer was on and having now used some my opinion is that it's almost exactly the same as Meindl Sportwax. The difference is so small I would hazard a guess that it was probably even made by Grangers the same as the Meindl Sportwax is with only the screw top jar and labeling being different.

    It's the same soft creamy consistency as Meindl Sportwax, rubs in and gets absorbed easily into the leather with very little effort required, conditions and feeds the leather extremely well giving a breathable water resistant finish which can be polished to a shine if required.

    Given that Meindl Sportwax now costs around £6.50 including delivery for one 80g screw top jar this stuff is an absolute bargain at £4.97 for two 100ml screw top jars (1 x neutral and 1 x brown) including delivery. The brown is very useful for covering over any scratches and scrapes.

    At this price for regular users of Meindl Sportwax it's definitely worth giving it a try or for anyone else with leather boots which need some life breathing back into the leather.

    Yesterday, whilst visiting the large JJB Sports outlet in Bangor, they had a total bargain.
    Two different sized (how they allowed it to happen, goodness knows) Salomon Goretex Trail shoes, one sized 11, the other a 10.
    The size 11 fitted like a glove, but the size 10 pinched my front toes.

    Totally gutted, as they only wanted £15 for both shoes.

    The staff member said it happens quite often, where a customer buys a pair of shoes, and because of their feet size and shape, they do not bother checking that both shoes are the same size.


    Staff members are supposed to check the sizing of shoes offered a customer, but if a customer is happy with their purchase, and the shoes are paid for, nothing much is said.

    It just goes to show, what insane profit margins are made on footwear.

    Those trail shoes usually retail for nearly £100, but £15 was a bargain for someone with differing foot size.

    Thats a good price, I have been looking for the 34:45 version got one last week but it cost a lot more than that.

    Go outdoor sells the Alpine trek 35L for £72, so got quite a bit lobbed off. The 35:45 does look a decent rucksack as well. I never realy heard of Lowe that much until recently! Milliet do also price match and 10% off. Though it's far more long winded then Go outdoors system.

    There will be a considerable difference in weight, bulk and durability - for the latter point read all the the bad reviews on Amazon about cheap tarpaulins. I've just bought one to spread in the back of my car when I'm taking garden waste to the council tip. I went for a "medium grade" rather than a "lightweight" one but when it arrived I was still surprised how thin it feels, although it is still heavy and it's impossible to fold it up very small.

    On the other hand, I've had a pu-coated nylon tarp for years, it fits folded into a stuffsack of about 8.5 x 3 inches and weighs very little. My wife and I use it as a sun shade on Greek beaches with 4 fibreglass poles, guys and long v-pegs .

    I've looked into this.
    It's only a bargain if they have the 2 maps you want in the store.
    An OL Explorer at £6.29 and a 2nd one for £3.15 = £9.44, which is £4.72 per map.
    By comparison, I have just bought a new Explorer from Dash4it for £5.89 with free postage.

    It's not a bargain if you order a map online to be delivered, when the postage charge is £3.29
    So a £6.29 map + postage = £9.58,
    or 2 maps at £6.29 + postage = £15.87, which is £7.94 per map.

    But are they going to give you 30% off both maps in the store, or will it be one at 30% off and one at half the full price?

    If anyone is after the Wainwright Pictorial Guides Boxed Set, then The Book People are selling the complete anniversary edition for £17.99, and there's free delivery if you buy before midnight today (enter the code DELTBP).   That's all seven guides, and is the cheapest that I've ever seen, and I paid a lot more than that for my copy.

    best gaiters you can buy (IMO), I pranged mine with a crampon point and Outdoor Research replaced them asking only that I emailed them a photo of the (tiny) rip.
    - Thanks to their 'Infinite Guarantee' https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/warranty - a genuine guarantee even if you damage the goods!

    ...so I now have 2 pairs - one with a goretex patch the size of a 5p, the other pair still with tags attached.

    NB For the 3 person look for the "other sellers on amazon price" - it's currently out of stock but delivery is expected around 7th September.

    Very similar design to the Vango Banshee - not the best or lightest out there but a bargain at these prices and worth considering for car camping or backpacking if you can split the weight between 2 or 3 people and it has some reasonably good reviews.

    I'm pretty sure Go Outdoors won't price match amazon due to them not being a VAT registered business in this country. I stand to be corrected but I believe amazon were deliberately VAT registered in Luxembourg to reduce the amount of UK taxes they pay.

    Regarding the Osprey pack, I have one and just had to wash it as the bottom panel was getting rather grubby, I agree it's  a curious design decision to use a pale grey fabric for that part.

    I've used them, they seem reliable and safe enough. It's a strange company though, they "gather" orders up over time, and then order themselves in bulk, so it may be a while if you're at the beginning of a cycle.

    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,

    Hi Moonraker

    This forum is packed with great advice. Using the "custom search" area at the top right hand side (almost) you can trawl years of advice on all subjects.

    Now at first sight it may appear that some advice is contradictory, but thinking about it we are all different creatures , some hot , some cold, some tall, some small, our needs may be different to our mates. so, all in all, the advice gives you some idea as to where to pitch your requirements, especially on things that may not have occurred to you.

    Its a great forum, full of characters and more important knowledge through experience. That search bar is my starting point for all my new requirements.

    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.

    Kinkyboots I am interested to why you have recommended the altberg defenders as good dog walking boots as opposed to a good walking boot, I think more than once now.
     For the £55 I paid for a new boxed pair you could do a lot worse for the money.


    Is it the lack of a waterproof lining or is there more to it.


    I haven't bought them as walking boots as already have good walking boots, i bought them to wear day to day as I just like boots.

    Just got the short sleeve top, 100% merino wool. Nice long back. Beware the ladies sizes are only 10 (34"/86cm) and 12 (35"/87.5cm). Strangely enough the long sleeve version are only in sizes 12 and 14.

    @ chip

    Dog walking for most people is a 7 days a week activity - sometimes twice a day. The Altberg Defender is a military boot used in a similar way usually on lower level terrain 7 days a week and they have a Cambrelle lining so they are quick drying should the boots get soaked through so they're usually ready to wear the next day. Although the  Altberg Defender is a high leg boot above ankle height it uses much softer leather offering less ankle support on rough terrain when compared to most decent hillwalking or hiking boots.

    The industry have managed to convince us walkers that the requirement to have a Sympatex, Gore-Tex or similar waterproof lining is preferable if not essential. For most people there's nothing worse than wet feet and if they can be avoided at all it's a major bonus. With most hillwalking or hiking boots there's usually also plenty of time between uses to dry them out if it's ever needed, in fact it's now very difficult to buy any hillwalking or hiking boots that don't have a waterproof liner of some description built into them.

    If you think about it the current trend towards lighter fabric construction boots wouldn't exist at all if it weren't for the waterproof liner that's in them.

    Thanks, that all make sense.
    I have a cheap pair of merrell ridgpass gtx walking boots for dog walking.
    I say cheap, they were actually £5 more than the defenders but half the price of my walking boots.


    But the merrells are not a patch on the defenders, it would be interesting to see how well the defenders stayed dry because on lowland walking atleast if they stayed dry in all but the worst conditions I would choose them over the merrell anyday.

    Those sizes nearly always feature more heavily in sales than medium and small sizes. Call me logical...but there's surely a case for manufacturing stuff in smaller numbers in sizes that sell poorly?

    I have been looking at Tents recently and I read the Independent, the free one on line. I use an adblocker as well but rented recently at let the Independent become free of it. As a novice I was then most surprised that when I next logged onto the Independent, I had loads of adverts thrust into my face all about tents! The Independent is now back on the adblocker!

    I wonder if the people who design or control all this are aware, that people like me do not see the adverts as helpful, they are just a bl00dy irritant! I like to think that I am perfectly capable of making most of my own decisions in life and this blatant intrusion into my personal world sometimes makes me feel like the man in the TV series, The Prisoner. I am the man 'they' are the ball! How does an individual 'fight' back against these monsterous people in the background who are trying to control everything I want or choose to do! 8)

    Anyway my BARGAIN is, I am sure, already known to most people, but just to be sure go to 'zen.co.uk' to read the national and local newspapers for free, in the UK and 'filehippo.com' for loads and loads of free programmes. Why spend money when you don't have to! Oh yes, and to get free travel, just learn how to hitchhike, it can be great fun.

    I have one, a good tent which I tend to use in the winter. I snapped one of the poles this year, I pushed the poles through the sleeve and secured one end to its brass hole, when I connected the other side it snapped. I realised, that if dry the poles and the fabric sleeve will slide easily against each other but if wet, if the whole pole length is not properly and manually in the correct position, they will stick together when wet and SNAP, I failed to ensure the curverture was correct.

    No, I don't agree.  They may have just run out between the previous buyer purchasing the last one and the website being updated.  It's only a scam if you don't get your money back.

    I hope you paid using PayPal.
    Ive only encountered one real rouge whilst buying rare 19c photographs on Ebay.
    I had paid him, but he claimed to have posted it, but would not provide any tracking details, which he had promised to provide being in Australia.
    The photograph was pricey, at £75 and he was murder to contact, and had virtually decided to run off with my money.

    PayPal stepped in, and refunded my money, but i had wanted the photograph for my collection.

    Your insured for roughly £30k if you use PayPal, so if goods go astray or are missdiscribed or simply non existent, you get your money back.

    Always use PayPal when buying on ebay.

    If anyone is near Bangor, the large JJB Sports on Caernarfon Rd, have a significant number of high quality Graghoppers waterproof gear, some of it Goretex for very little money.
    Depending on your size, most are priced in the £20-£40 range, in various colours.
    They have also acquired large amounts of Sealskin gloves and other walking related stock.

    All i can think of, is that they have brought in a lot of stock from other branches, and priced them up, to sell quickly, as walking gear is not usually their thing.

    If your in that area, its worth checking out, as some of the stuff was advertised at very tempting prices.

    The gloves looked great value, but as i already had some, i did not bother, but they might have made a good present for someone.

    They certainly have a fair number of SealSkin gloves, some waterproof others just warm layered affairs.
    SealSkin is certainly not a product that Sports Direct stock, as i cannot remember ever seeing high quality walking gear in any of their stores.

    Their Bangor branch, is one of their major superstores, and they currently have a huge range of clothing, mostly spors related but a lot  of it walking related gear as well.


    There was far too much stock to sift through quickly, you had to visibly check each item, and look for your particular size.


    Not many mediums or large, but mostly XL and some XXL, big enough for two of me.

    They even have a glut of Skins compression clothing, another product range i do not remember seeing there.

    All i can think of, is that Sports Direct have acquired a large amount of stock, either from other stores, or from another retailer.

    Most of the gear is being sold off in considerable bulk, there must be at least a hundred or more of these Graghopper waterproofs, and non waterproof jackets, none costing more than £60.

    By what i could see, the GoreTex jackets were in silly sizes such as XXL or even larger, so the stock must have been difficult for someone to move.

    Most of the gloves were cheap Karrimor or similar brand, but there were a significant amount of SealSkin items, well below retail price.


    They came from somewhere, and i suppose a company as large as Sports Direct have the financial power to buy up large amounts of stock they know they can sell quickly if its discounted heavily enough.

    People are given them for their job role.
    Armed forces did/do dish them out along with certain roles in police forces etc. Probably others. 
    They might be due a new pair after a period of time and there is nothing wrong with their current ones so sell them on. Or leave their role and take what they can etc.

    I don't think there's any more for sale than any other brand and as already stated the vast majority seem to be military and police boots. The Altberg Walking/Hiking boots seem to be pretty thin on the ground by comparison.

    I think you'd be surprised by the number of people who buy new walking/hiking boots full of the best intentions and maybe use them once or twice before deciding it's not for them and throw them in the cupboard. Time passes and eventually  they come across them again and decide to sell.

    There does seem to be a higher proportion of second hand women's walking/hiking boots for sale so maybe the Imelda Marcos shoe collecting disease is responsible for that.  ;D

    The best advice I can give to anyone looking or thinking of buying is to go to one Altberg's Premier retailers to try some on and get properly measured so you know exactly what size and more importantly width fitting you need then keep your eyes peeled for a bargain in your particular size.

    Bargains do occasionally appear but you do need to be patient and wait for the right boot in the right size and condition at the right price to appear for sale. The savings can sometimes be huge when compared to the cost of buying brand new.

    My Altbergs for work were around £30 I think. Listed as "used" but looked brand new.
    Gone through 2 pairs in 8 years. The tops were fine just he soles were gone.
    I wish the resole service wasn't so expensive. £65 to resole or get a newish pair for £35 (if you bide your time and keep an eye out)?
    I end up chucking the old shoes out. Not worth the cost of the resole.

    Post by: nesty on 16:32:18, 06/03/18
    I am not saying this is the case with Altbergs. Though, I think some buyers may ignore the importance of the width fitting.
    I have tried Medium on in my size and they don't feel comfortable. Tho wide and extra wide is perfectly fine.
    Also, the 2nd hand ones on ebay might of been purchased pre-owned and there is no returns policy for the buyer. Hence they sell them on again!

    Look for the Premier Retailers with the Red Flags on the map as they should carry a larger range and have better measuring and fitting facilities available.

Also bought some Leder-Grese, which i applied today. Not too sure if the boots needed it, but what the hell. Look after your gear and your gear will look after you! All in all Im very happy.

    My local Aldi (Havant) has down sleeping bags for £29.99 down from £39.99!

    No temperature rating, but green mummy with full length two way zip and a claimed weight of 950g. I took one out to inspect it, and found it impossible to get back into its stuff sack - the down was that springy!

    Sorely tempted - but I've enough sleeping bags already, and it's not particularly light.

    Other branches may have them as well.

    Looking at Alt Berg boots - are defender the ones to go for? There seem to be more of these around than others.
    Title: Re: BARGAIN THREAD
    Post by: kinkyboots on 16:03:02, 19/03/18
    The Defender is a military boot not a walking boot but could easily be used for low level walks. The main differences between the Defender and the specific walking boot models are that it has a Cambrelle quick drying lining not a Sympatex waterproof lining and I don't think it would provide the necessary ankle support for walking on higher terrain due to the softer leather used above ankle height.

    These are the Altberg walking boot models http://www.altberg.co.uk/category/factory-made-boots/ (http://www.altberg.co.uk/category/factory-made-boots/)

    Depending on the type of walking terrain you walk on the most the main models to look at are as follows:-
    2-3 season - Fremington and Malham
    3    season - Tethera and Nordkapp
    3-4 season - Mallerstang

    I only do day walks, typically 5-15 miles, being in the midlands most of the time walks are fairly flat, mostly off road, though I do make frequent day trips to Wales, Shropshire & the Peak District so some hill walks.

    If the above is still a true representation of the type of walking you do the Tethera or Nordkapp will be more than adequate for your needs and although not specifically rated for crampon use both models have been used with flexible crampons for short periods by several forum members. The Mallerstang is a beast of a boot and might be total overkill for your needs?

    Wow! Quoting me back at myself - very impressive! Yes all still true so you're probably right they'd be overkill. I was more looking at the height of the ankle support which seemed higher than the others which I find I like on my current boots. (I certainly dont ever use crampons).
    If I'm going to go overkill on one item its probably going to be the boots - even buying a second pair at all could be considered overkill - the ones I wear now still work  - I'd just find it useful to have a second pair to alternate between.

    [edit: Looking at them again the Tethera or Nordkapp look more similar than I'd previously thought - I'll think on more. Thanks again for your advice]
    Title: Re: BARGAIN THREAD
    Post by: kinkyboots on 16:55:50, 19/03/18
    It's not so much the increase ankle height of the Mallerstang it's the additional weight you have to drag around everywhere and the increased overall stiffness of the boot particularly the increased stiffness of the sole which you may find to be uncomfortable when walking on flatter terrain for any distance.

    My advice would be to go for the Tethera or Nordkapp whichever last / width fitting best suits/fits your feet and you find to be the most comfortable.

    I would disagree with Kinkyboots in his description of the Altberg Defender boots, having just bought a pair myself. They are an excellent walking boot and give excellent ankle support. Ive walked over a hundred miles in them, several 20 milers across peat bogs, muddy fields, and streams. Believe me they are waterproof. Altberg discribe them as being just as waterproof as Sympatex lined boots, especially if cared for correctly. I would describe them as a 3-4 season boot, weather wise that is. May be too warm for summer use.

    We will agree to differ.  ;)

    Without the inclusion of a waterproof liner the Altberg Defender is water resistant not waterproof. Should the full thickness of the leather ever get fully soaked through you will have wet feet.

    For use in cold and wet conditions and more rugged mountainous terrain the army move up to the Altberg Bergen boot which is made from thicker leather, has increased ankle support and a Sympatex waterproof liner.

    Watch out for the sizing, though, which several reviewers comment on and I found to my cost. The L top was allegedly for my chest size but I had to take it back and swap it for a XL.

    I never could resist a bargain so when I was looking for a lightweight boot for summer use and came across these Oboz Sawtooth Mid BDRY Boots (Olive) and Oboz Sawtooth Low BDRY Shoes (Walnut) at what I considered to be bargain prices I did a bit of online research, read the reviews I could find and took a wild gamble.

    I ordered the Mid BDRY Boots first and was so impressed with the fit, comfort and build quality that I also then ordered the Low BDRY Shoes.

    The MOD are issuing a new rage of boots this year. Apparently it will be a gradual rollout as kit needs replacing but if they clear out any remaining stocks there we may see more new boots of the current type for sale.

    I think the replacements may prove popular when they reach the surplus market:
    https://www.[censored].co.uk/community/threads/press-release-pilgrim-gtx-fg-combat-high-liability.273308/

    I've just aquired a pair of Altberg Defenders, also looking around for some Lowa desert boots, they will be both my walking & work boots for the next few months. I've had a few flair-ups of tendonitus on the top of both feet over the last couple of years. The higher military boots allow me to skip lace eyelets over the effected area but still retain support, hopefully allowing my feet to heal properly.

    Yes its cheap, but it is only rated as 1500 litres, whilst the Sawyer is 450,000 (yes - four hundred and fifty thousand) litres.

    So the Sawyer works out a lot "cheaper per litre"


    I am a bit sceptical at the level of filtration (0.01 Micron) when all major manufacturers are 0.1 micron)

    Weight: 53g/ 0.12lb

    SONGMICS Sand Proof Beach Mat Blanket Water-repellent Quick-dry Pocket Blanket with 4 Stakes for Picnic, Camping, Hiking GCM90AG, £9.99 on Amazon.
    It comes in a drab-olive green and black Nylon like material which looks great and will be great for stealth camping. 
    However, when it arrived today, and I had a chance to actually look at, I think it may have found a better use for it...As an ultralight, micro tarp shelter!
    Unfolded, it measures 160cm (5', 3") x 140cm (4', 7"), which gives a diagonal length of 219cm (7', 2"), just big enough to use as a shelter tarp.  It says it is water repellent, so that should make it nigh on waterproof when erected is such a way that water can run off and not pool on top of it. 
    When used as a picnic blanket, it comes with four, fairly heavy duty, x- profile plastic tent pegs to allow the user to hold the corners down. There are webbing loops sewn onto each corner to put the pegs through.
    Or you can save 30g and leave the pegs at home, and instead, put rocks, stones or sand into the four sewn in corner pockets to weigh the corners down.  The webbing loops will also allow it to be hung over some paracord as a tarp shelter. Ideally, I would hang it in diamond configuration, with one corner low to the ground or even pegged down, with the other tied to the rising ridge line with a prussic knot to tension it, and the other two corners pulled out and guyed with more cord and pegged down.  I have 300metres of 1mm, olive green, braided Dyneema fishing line with a breaking strain of 136kg, which weighs next to nothing per metre, to use as the ridge line and guy lines.
    A 7 foot by 6 foot tarp weighs over 600g, but the Songmics picnic blanket/tarp shelter weighs just 222g, with pegs and the draw cord carry pouch, so two of them would still weigh less than an ex-army basha tarp.
    The four pegs together weigh 30g and the carry pouch weighs another 10g, so put it in a resealable polythene bag, weighing 2g, and leave the pegs at home and you can get it down to just 185g.  Not bad for under a tenner!

    The Sawyer will only allow that amount of water to be filtered if the source water is relatively sediment free, if you back-flush it thoroughly after each use, and dry it correctly afterwards...otherwise, it too would eventually block and become useless after a few thousand litres.  No doubt the HiHill would filter a lot more than the stated 1500 litres if it could be back-flushed too.  The HiHill has one advantage over the Sawyer...It has an activated Charcoal filter built in...Which will remove toxins and heavy metals that the Sawyer cannot remove and it will improve the taste of the filtered water...Not bad for the price.

    Lungs; not too much effort to blow it up though.


    To be honest, I don't understand why anyone would spend good money on a lightweight thermarest neoair, for example, and then buy (and carry) a pump, just because they can't be bothered to blow it up themselves!

    As a Neoair owner (a great product) I just use their basic Thermarest bag to inflate it. The bag fits over the valve and I just scrunch the bag end and roll the air into the mattress. Very low tech but totally effective. I usually scrunch and roll up to four times, perfect! When not used for this purpose I use it to store clothing and in the evening I roll it up to become my base pillow. I then place my Sea to Summit blow up pillow on top, it all helpsme  to avoid a stiff neck by the morning.

    To be honest, I don't understand why anyone would spend good money on a lightweight thermarest neoair, for example, and then buy (and carry) a pump, just because they can't be bothered to blow it up themselves!


    Not everyone who camps is carrying their home from home in a rucksack and an inflatable mattress might not be the only thing they want to blow up (these new fandangled inflatable tents, inflatable chairs, egos....  :D  )

    Aldi have camping gear "special buys" at the moment.  Mainly aimed at festival / campsite camping me thinks.

    Everything Aldi is selling for camping is way too heavy for backpacking...It's more suited for car campers and caravanners.  The only thing I saw that jumped out as a bargain is their "Ultra-Light Camping Chair", which looks like cheap Chinese copy of Helinox Chair One...The Chair One weighs about the same as the Aldi one but costs about £60 more!  But it's still too heavy for backpacking...I have the much lighter Helinox Chair Zero (weighs just 510g) for that.

    I have a much lighter non existent chair (weighs just zero g) for wild camping.  :D


    As you say, the Aldi stuff is not for backpacking - but many on this forum are either not into backpacking, or (like myself), often camp from the boot of the car and go walking in the hills for a day.

    Slept on it last night, and I think that it is pretty decent; comfortable whether I was on my back or on my side. Packs really small, too. Tempted to go back and buy some more for family camping.

    (https://image.ibb.co/hBkn7J/Crivet_camping_mat.jpg)


    Only time will tell whether it is durable though, but I'll keep the receipt.


    Weather so good that I couldn't resist sleeping out again; this mat is very comfortable; certainly works for me anyway.


    One thing though, below where my sweaty back was, I noticed that the material in and around the grooves between the tubes was damp - the presence of this condensation suggests that the mat does not provide good insulation (as is to be expected from what is after all a bag of air), and for winter use, additional insulation in the form of a closed cell mat would be needed - which kind of negates the usefulness of the mat as far as I am concerned. Very good for summer use though.

    But was the dampness condensation or sweat that was unable to evaporate ?
    My back (shirts) get absolutely soaked when carrying my non-framed day-pack, its not condensation, simply sweat from having no air-flow to disperse it.

    Anyhoo, OS mapping online, you can get a years subscription for £8 worth of Tesco vouchers, and then use it on every online device you have, cos it's accessed thru your web browser, (We can use it on both our phones, and each of our computers, and our tablets simultaneously).
    Tracking on it isn't perfect, but you can plan routes, see other route ideas in the area of your choice, download maps, and it doesn't need a data signal, just gps when you are out and about.

    I find when I have Google maps on my phone (using GPS) it flattens the battery in very short-order, the only way I can use it as a "Sat-Nav" is to have it plugged into a cigarette lighter.



    What is the consumption / battery life like using this "OS Online" ?

    If it is accessed thru' your web browser how can it work without a phone signal ?


    When you say "tracking isn't perfect" what sort of errors are you finding ?

    My phone is very good on battery anyway, leaving the GPS on doesn't drain it.  Using OS online seems to be as light on the battery as you are looking at the screen - i.e the more you use it to map read, the faster your battery will wear out.
     It seems to work by caching the map so that you don't need a data signal as you move around, until you walk out of the area you've got on screen as it were. You can download a map onto your device prior to leaving home, in theory your device should then not need a data signal at all - just the GPS signal.  I've not managed to work off the downloaded map properly yet (mostly because I've not tried).   I've not really had a problem so far, always picking up a data signal just in time to cache the next  bit of OS Map.  I prefer to try and use my printed route map , and then OS online when I think I might have gone astray. 

    All the usual stuff about mileage, height, miles per hour etc are also there.   

    As far as the tracking is concerned, I've had problems where it seems to have stopped when I've switched over to check messages or something.  Again, I think it's user error.  I've never read the instructions.
    What I really like is that the OS Map can be zoomed in or out (old eyes can't see small stuff), a route can be worked out at home on the computer and immediately synced with my phone, and I can print maps off, (with a bit of fiddling to make it large enough for me to see without rooting round for reading glasses). 

    You can save your routes, and tracks when you get that right (privately or publicly), and also have access to every route that any other person has stored publicly.  I tend to stick to just the "Premium" routes for route ideas, and I have found some good ones.
    As I said, I like it.   O0 O0

    PS even using it all day, constantly checking stuff, zooming in, out and mucking around, I think I went through about 50% of my battery life.   If I just leave it on in the background, it doesn't seem to have much effect.

    Then headed off to the beach at Tynemouth for my daily 4 miles. It was actually harder than it may seem as I deliberately went up and down to the beaches as far as Whitley Bay at every opportunity. Knees now feeling it. Back to the Lincs. lowlands tomorrow.

    Asdas are currently selling compact and lightweight folding saws, similar in design to a Bahco Laplander.  If you are not familiar with the Bahco Laplander, it is one of the best saws to take with you on camping trips, anywhere you might need to cut wood to make a shelter or for firewood.  When folded it is just 7 1/2" long, almost pocket size, yet it can cut a 3" diameter tree trunk down in seconds.  It weighs just under 400g,  and it costs around £17.  The blade on the Asda version is noticeably thinner than a Laplander blade, although it is still quite stiff,  and I would say the teeth seem sharper too.  The thinner blade does make it noticeably lighter than a Laplander...It weighs just 212g, almost half the weight!  So why would I class the Asda version as a bargain?  Well, because it only costs 83 pence!!!

    Mmm got one of those saw to do a bit of light pruning in the allotment. Teeth were out if set on first 2" branch and was blunt by the third.  Handle not too strong either.Twas a pity.
    That sort of saw more suited to preppers, survivalists  and wannabe SAS folks. Most walkers that I know don't carry such equipment. We try to leave everything as we find it.

    A few weeks ago I shopped at Decathlon and bought a pair of hiking trousers for £8.99 and then wore them over two weeks walking in the Pyrenees. They were great! So comfortable and lightweight and they washed and dried so easily, far better than my 'expensive' Marmot and Columbia pairs.

    I visited Decathlon today and bought another pair, £7.99 today! I'm going to use them as off road running trousers, my wife's friend is going to elasticate the bottoms for me. I might even use them as 'pyjama trousers' on my next hike, they are that comfortable!

    I started off road running again from two days ago, something I havn't done since about March (injured my leg), my upper thighs at the moment are so sore and I had shin splints pain yesterday! None today, but my upper thighs still hurt.

    Those of us looking for a pair of winter boots, could grab a serious bargain in Bettws Y Coed Rock Bottom.
    Upstairs are ten pairs of unused Scarpa boots of various design, that for some reason they cannot sell, there is nothing wrong with them, other than their a few years old.
    Some of the boxes  are a bit tatty due to storage, and either they were ordered by a customer who failed to collect them, or their stock from their branch up the road,
    Most of them are full Scottish winter boots, totally unsuited to summer wear, and their all well under £100 a pair.

    The biggest bargains, and way off the scale for your average Uk walker, are two pairs of unused high altitude Pebax shell boots, one a Scarpa Vega size 46 the other by Koflach, £80 each.

    Limited use maybe, but a similar boot in design and application in their Cotswold shop up the road retails at well over £400, and the fact that they have them in stock, must mean they must sell them at that inflated price.

    You may be correct, but, I would have thought the opposite, they originally stocked them as part of their stock-profile, have sold none (or very few) and hence why they have them in stock.


    Cynical Moi ?

    That certainly makes huge sense, and i cannot think a better answer.

    If the Scarpa Vegas had been ordered by a customer, i recon a substantial deposit or a full payment would have been taken for them.
    Few people would forget to collect such expensive boots.

    At that price why don't you just take a punt on it if you can't find anyone who's tried it? It's got a hydrostatic head of 15,000 so it's probably OK. I googled and found mixed reviews of Dare2b. Most people said their stuffs great but some (https://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/mountain-warehouse-vs-dare2b/) said their waterproofs were as bad as mountain warehouse (and from personal experience mountain warehouse is bad).

    My local one in Ipswich had some at £24.99 but the quality seemed really poor. If you covered the name up and asked me to suggest a price I would have said £12.99.

    ......Buy any two standard OS Landranger or Explorer maps for just £11 (RRP £8.99 each)*.  The offer also works on multiples of two (i.e. get four standard maps for £22, six for £33, and so on), so the more you buy, the more you save. You can even mix and match between Landranger and Explorer series.

    Simply pop the maps of your choice into your shopping basket and apply code OS11 to get your savings.

    Essentially a Nordisk Telemark 1 clone with permanently attached inner and fly.

    According to US Amazon the true weight is 700 grams, but that is still significantly lighter than the Nordisk.

    I bought a lightweight camping mat from Lidl last year, and they are back in stock again.

    (https://image.ibb.co/hBkn7J/Crivet_camping_mat.jpg)


    I've used this quite a bit now, including over winter, and I am impressed, so I snapped up another two - a bargain at £17.99. Weight 508g, pack down small, and they are really comfy. The outer two tubes are slightly larger diameter so I find that I don't have a tendency to roll off the mat. Recommended if you are on a budget.


    Note - this is NOT the Crivit self inflating mat that is on their website right now.

    There's supposedly a deal on OS paper maps buy 3 get them for £20 (or £35 for active version). They charged me full price on the active version maps but I've emailed them about it and expect they will refund the difference. Offer ends at the end of the day April 24th according to my screenshot. I'll edit this post to let you know if they refund me today.

    I have used the home delivery quite frequently.


    Up until about 12 months ago it was free delivery but I guess they realised it was costing them money so introduced a delivery charge, (for under £20 orders). Delivered to a local (to you shop - not just an Aldi) about 7000+ shops in the scheme, or, to your home.

    Indeed, but I though maybe one of their 7000+ 'delivery point' shops (such as the Co-Op, Nisa stores etc) might be represented on the 'island'.


    If you put your post-code into the shop finder it will tell you the nearest one to you.

    Not 100% sure the "was" price is ever accurate but apparantly this down jacket was £120 and is now £24. Regardless I ordered one anyway and I personally like it, although the sizing is very small, I ordered a size bigger than normal and it's snug!

    I hope it fits ok or that you near a Trespass store, to get a refund from them the service is terrible. I am not saying the goods are poor quality, but if you have an issue they are the worst store ever to deal with. I had to wait about 2 months for a simple return refund online.

    It was much smaller than expected but as I went a size up it fits well enough. I can tell it's not the best quality but it did the job at the weekend and kept me nice and warm when the temperature dropped and I changed out of my waterproofs. So overall I'd say maybe not a bargain but a decent enough purchase which will do  :)

    Bargain for anyone looking for a quality leather sheath/pouch complete with a belt loop for either their Opinel No.8 or Victorinox 111mm knife.

    I bought one of the new/unissued ones for my Opinel No. 8 and it fits perfectly. One coat of leather conditioner and couple of coats of some old Meindl SportWax I had left over in the cupboard and it's good to go and should last a lifetime. They're made from quality 2mm brown full grain smooth leather and put Opinel's overpriced faux leather offerings to shame.
