Re: West Highland Way in 6 Days

I am currently sitting in work enjoying some down time, so had opportunity to read your walk report. I do really enjoy reading others walk reports of the West Highland Way, it brings back so many memories of the 2 times I have done it. Many congratulations on completing, a thoroughly enjoyable read ...

Alpkit Jura Smock

Does anyone have any personal experience of these? I am tempted to try one out, just not entirely sure on their waterproofness though. I am also somewhat of a heavy sweater so also a bit concerned how this will dissipate with the fleece lining. I know they appear to be similar to Buffalo products bu...

@ AyrshireAlps. Many thanks, that is so kind of you to offer. I have already ordered one along with the sealant. Thanks again for offer.

Re: Lanshan; a question.

Pour small amounts of of spirit into some decanted sealant and mix until you have the viscosity of olive oil. https://www.litesmith.com/seam-grip-sil-instructions/ You can also use mineral spirit instead of white spirit if you already have some. @ Marty_JG many thanks, much appreciated :clap: :clap:

Hi Robin, thanks for your comments. Can you recommend what ratio of white spirit to use with seam sealant?

Many thanks.

Re: Lanshan; a question.

Good morning all. I hope everyone is keeping well? So I thought I would post an update. I decided to take the plunge and buy said tent. It was retailing on eBay for circa £90, and at check out I was able to apply a 10% voucher code, so I got it for the princely sum of £81.59. It arrived yesterday. A...

Re: Lanshan; a question.

Apologies guys, I should have stated what model of tent. It is the Lanshan 3F UL. I should also state that it is a genuine vendor/retailer on Ebay, and not second hand. I am kind of concerned that they don't really know what they are talking about. I think to err on safe side if I did purchase it I ...

Lanshan; a question.

Hi all. A Lanshan has long been a tent that has piqued my interest. I have done a lot of research and watched many YouTube videos. Would I be correct in saying that when buying this tent you will be required to seal the seams yourself? As seems the case in almost every YouTube video I have watched. ...
