Re: LightWeight double sleeping bag ??

Probably worth having a look at ultralightoutdoorgear - https://www.ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk/equipment-c3/sleeping-bags-c21 There are only two synthetic fill doubles and they are on the heavier side. If you're comfortable using down there are more options. Th lightest double sleeping bag they hav...

Re: Advice on women’s waterproof jacket

Well the Montane Alpine Pro is £360 rrp.... And, as I said, you can pick it up for much less if you shop around and I don't think she's necessarily looking for a beast of a jacket like that :wink: You're right though, Marty. Paramo has a good reputation and I have been tempted in the past. I have s...

Re: Doggo GPS?

She gets a bit of freedom but she tends to spot deer, hares, rabbits and birds long before I do and has been known to scarper (I was left sat on a hillside for 2 hours while she was away chasing a hare) I've not had a problem with the retractable on her harness, just reel her in if I spot anyone co...

Re: Doggo GPS?

Have a look at Findster, doesn’t require a phone signal nor have a monthly sub obv you have a higher up front cost. I’m guessing you’ve now found out that borders have a mind of their own and wilfully ignore you if there’s something better on the go? I’ve got an 8m flexi attached to my rucksack wit...

Re: Doggo GPS?

... And it would be no use if your boy goes down a rabbit hole, which border terriers seem to enjoy doing :lol: I would really work on recall and look at whistle training, a whistle carries much further than your voice so can be better for a recall than your voice especially if it is windy which ma...

Doggo GPS?

We have a Border Terrier (pictured because I couldn't resist) who is just about 9 months old now. He's getting into the hills more and we're wondering whether a dog GPS might be worth getting. Generally we will have him on the lead as Borders can be little bampots, but would like to let him off some...

Re: Drones

You encountered someone committing a criminal act. A photograph and a complaint to the police and CAA is in order. I contacted the National Park and Trust the following day but didn't receive any info on what happened. Probably not much they could have done other than put up some signs at the Steel...

Re: Advice on women’s waterproof jacket

Had a look into the Montane Minimus jacket but not completely sold on it yet so would like to hear any opinions on this too! I have the older version of the Minimus. I use it as a light weight waterproof for hill running. I was impressed initially as it held up well on claggy dreich days where the ...

Re: Drones

Not quite the same thing is it? There were two elements, one was the narcissism of vlogging itself, the other element is disturbing others. I don't see why one set of social media posts are inherently different to others, and I agree about disturbing others. Other people’s movements and actions rec...

Re: 1-man tent and sleeping bag recommendations

Sleeping bags: Ultralight Outdoor Gear are good for a peruse as you can search by weight and they provide their own reviews for products - https://www.ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk/equipment-c3/sleeping-bags-c21/sleeping-bags-c88#sort3 However, you can usually find the gear cheaper elsewhere.

Re: Advice for training a dog to sleep in a tent!

He barked at it, attempted to dig into it and also attempted to get into one of the storage nets Dugs are rubbish, when you actually analyse it. ;) True. Unhinged little beasts. We've called Goose "f*cking fanny" and "poo-face" so many times I am shocked he doesn't respond to th...

Re: Advice for training a dog to sleep in a tent!

We have a 7 month old Border Terrier, Goose (pictured because, why not?). We're hoping he'll be able to join us wild camping once he's a bit older. In similar vein to others we've opted to introduce camping in a manageable way. During lockdown we have put one of our older tents up in the garden duri...

Re: no April showers

As much as I love the drama of the hills out west and the majesty of the Cairngorms, the little hills of Aberdeenshire have lots to offer. Bennachie is a perfect mountain range in miniature <3 I grew up in the Bridge of Marnoch area between Huntly and Foggieloan (Aberchirder). My folks are still the...
