Well to tell youthe truth i dont really have any picks as i only started walking in September but here it goes anyway.

TENT - Tesco 3 man dome - 20 - Great piece of cheap kit
Boots - Mountain gear (no brand) - 30 - No blisters but couldnt handle the lakes in winter, feet got rather damp. Brilliant summer boots though
Waterprood - 10 pullovers (no brand) - worked a treat
Socks - I think they are x-trails 

Essential piece of kit - 20 Tabs and a lighter  ;D ;D ;D

Aw! Dee-Dums  ;D

My list is

Jacket: (oddly) a lightfitting Berghaus for when the weather is calmer
Trousers: Some more combats (mine are getting a little worn)
Socks: I'm tempted to by these 1000 mile sock things Dazza mentioned.
General equipment: A new flask - my old workman's flask is becoming an embarrasment.  :-[

I'd quite like those fold up plates/cups that were shown on Dragon's Den as well - they looked great, but have completely forgotten the name of them  ;)

Merry X-Mas, Summit!  And all the rest of the fine folk on here :P

ooooooooo and i've been such a good girl..........

what i'd like is a really nice waterproof jacket (the berghaus one the other half has will do) oh apparently its a long cornice
some nice waterproof trousers (anything would be better than the [censored] i used on the pw!)
and some nice comfy boots............

we (me and mr kkm) would like a nice extremely lightweight tent - although for ease our pop up tent was fantastic it were a bit on the heavy side......

my favourite bit of kit i used in 2007 has to be the seal skin socks.  they did try and keep the water out, but when you will go in bogs up to your knees.........

oh and a really nice light weight back pack.........

so santa, i have been such a really good girl............ ;)

merry christmas everyone - may 2008 bring you walking heaven!
