Sorry I went off topic but the thought of shopping at S. Direct  and supporting the way the owner conducts his business really riles me. He may pay his taxes but is that a good excuse for the way staff are treated and paid? Its up to your own conscience.

[font=]I've got a mixture of karrimor and exped. Both seem to do the job. As previously mentioned, the karrimor ones are thicker and a bit heavier but haven't let me down over the last couple of years of use.[/font]

At least SD pay their taxes in the UK, no one knows who owns Cotswolds (PAI) they may be based in Switzerland or Luxembourg,  the actual owners are nameless.
By the way the topic was actually about waterproof bags and their demise.
Owners As Adventure are based in Belgium

Ooh cheeky. They are dry and canny and like me, aging. Probably weigh twice as much now as when bought due to all the added silicone.

And to think some people will pay lots of money to have their bags filled with silicone  ;D
