Re: Scarpa Ribelle Lite OD vs HD /CL HD

One thing I've learned from a fair bit of trail running is the importance of buying the right size shoes. A lot of people still buy the size that "fits" i.e. if they are a size 9 in a normal shoe, they buy size 9 trail running shoes. Experience and talking to a lot of knowledgeable people ...

Re: Scarpa Ribelle Lite OD vs HD /CL HD

Update on this. Having tried the various options on I went for the Ribelle CL HD, in a half (euro) size; the fit provided by the half size being essential for me in this case. How are they in terms of width, especially mid foot? I'd say relatively narrow, but not excessively so... I have wider than...

Update on this. Having tried the various options on I went for the Ribelle CL HD, in a half (euro) size; the fit provided by the half size being essential for me in this case. I found the extra features in the CL HD to be worth the minor weight increase, especially the lacing system which allowed me...

Mamores extension

Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has added the Aonachs, Carn Mor Dearg, and Ben Nevis to the Mamores circuit i.e. Tranter minus the Grey Corries? If so, how viable is it over 3 days. Looking for something challenging but that doesn't require excessively long days back-to-back. Tranter itself is a bi...

Re: Fisherfield Six

This is very doable in 2 to 3 days, with plenty of wild camp spots en route. We followed Steve Fallon's route: https://www.stevenfallon.co.uk/anteallach.html# Starting at Dundonnel, we did a half-day hike, then camped at Loch na Sealga (if you google the loch you can see the photos I took in the mor...

Re: Flasks - advice please

I recently bought a Zojirushi after reading this thread as my current (John Lewis) one was a bit heavy. The Zoji did a great job this weekend. After over 4 hrs on Yorkshire Dales (close to zero degrees along the plateau from High Seat to Little Fell) the hot chocolate was too hot to drink directly f...

Re: Scarpa Ribelle Lite OD vs HD /CL HD

Much appreciated, Fraser. I've dropped them an email asking for an explanation of the differences and will give them a call if required.

Re: Scarpa Ribelle Lite OD vs HD /CL HD

Apologies for the double post, I should probably clarify that I'm considering the HD and CL HD models to be the same for purposes of comparison against the Lite OD. Scarpa's website suggests the only difference is the 'plush leather' lining on the CL which is the same weight but slightly warmer and ...

Scarpa Ribelle Lite OD vs HD /CL HD

Just wondering if anyone has tried one or both of these models and could elaborate on any differences worth considering. Both should suit my needs (a 3 season, light and fast, boot that will work for general hill-walking as well as some scrambling and occasional winter use), but difficult to establi...

Re: Snow / Weather Conditions

Does anyone know how it looks around Kintail/Glen Sheil? Hoping to do a 2 day loop of A'Glas-bheinn, Beinn Fhada, Ciste Dhubh and the Kintail brothers and sisters ridges. Given the forecast, trying to decide whether to give it a go (probably stay overnight at Camban bothy) or just do some day hiking...

Tent Inner Carrying

Hi All, Quick question. I've been using a combined inner/outer pitch tent for several years and have just bought a NatureHike Mongar 2, which is Inner 1st pitching (or groundsheet/fly 1st, then Inner). We will be splitting the tent between 2 of us for carrying; should we be looking to keep the inner...

I've contacted the Shiel Shop and they are putting one aside, so thank you for the suggestion!

Re: Kintail Brothers & Sisters + Beinn Fhada and A'Ghlas Bhe

Excellent, thanks. I'm possibly now leaning towards staying at the Travelodge near the the airport on the Friday night and driving down to Morvich early Saturday, getting gas en route. Seems that this would de-stress proceedings a little and I don't think there is a particular need to start the hike...

Re: Kintail Brothers & Sisters + Beinn Fhada and A'Ghlas Bhe

Thanks rockhopper, that's good to know. Sounds like it's a bit of a slog up CD, so camping close to where you did might be good to avoid having to do it first thing Sunday. My main concerns right now are where to pitch the tent (pay to pitch at campsite if can get late access or just try and sleep i...
