Re: Highest car park when doing a munro

I live in Wales and I'm unlikely to ever complete many Munros. I'm also getting on 'a bit'. :\ A question came to my mind this morning whilst looking at mountain treks in Wales and Scotland. It may well be common knowledge, but I've no idea. Is there a list anywhere of elevations from sea level AND ...

Re: Power Alternatives?

With due respect, I did. I said I was in Arctic Norway. Also, I merely enquired regarding lighter alternatives (any experience had), of equivalence to my last year's setup. I asked for experience of fit for purpose equivalents. On that basis, it wasn't relevant to for me to ramble on further about w...

Re: Power Alternatives?

Hi Marty. Yes. Thankyou. That was a consideration when I acquired the RavPower. However, a colleague at work at work had his pack in on him at the start of a GR10 trek. So I went for the Rav instead. It served me well on Senja, but I've just been researching lighter options and wondered what others'...

Re: Power Alternatives?

Hi again. Thanks for your feedback. I'll bear your advice in mind. Sorry to sound particular/pedantic. This is a particularly remote part of Europe and last year I was trekking almost entirely away from all human contact for 6 weeks. If (and a big IF), this comes to be, then this future trip may wel...

Re: Alpkit Pipedream 400 Sleeping Bag

Hi I have this as well. It's a pretty good bag. To save space (some will possibly frown on this), I don't use the bag. Instead, for multi-day hikes, I now pack it in an eVent compression bag. It has straps, so I can pack it really small. It's then 'released' each evening and lofts up very well. It w...

Power Alternatives?

I'm looking for suggested alternatives to my current power setup, last used in Arctic Norway. Looking at whether I can go lighter without losing power bank capacity (too much). I'm currently using this Toospon as a powerbank (30000 mAh) . . https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07PBXLN2B/ref=ppx_yo_d...

Re: Packable 2nd backpack for 'from basecamp' trekking

Scottk wrote:Gossamer Gear do the vagabond packable. Not sure if it’s big enough for you but has shoulder strap pockets, 2 water bottle pockets and a large stretchy outer pocket. Weight is about 320g and supposed to be ok for weights up to 7 kg.


Thanks 👍

Re: The new Nordisk Telemark 2.2

Zipper strength has been good so far. It stands up to stormy weather but tends to bend a lot so I have been woken up with the tent hitting my face. No leaks but the condensation is pretty bad but to be expected. For me, it’s a great small tent for a few nights away and if the weather looks to be ba...

Re: The new Nordisk Telemark 2.2

That's good to know. Thanks weebeastie. Hopefully, the 2-door will help sortcondensation issues. I sleep very warm so I'm always happy to partially open flaps and I always carry a Tyvec gs with me. For what it's worth, Chris Townsend really likes it.
