Re: Scarpa Manta Tech GTX

@martin1909 I've just ordered a pair of these, to be used with my petzl vasak c1 crampons, my thinking being that they seem a good compromise ie not to rigid, so can walk big days, and the c1 crampons can also be used with my 3 season boots of needed.

Re: Dried food

I've bought a few for my WHW trip purely for the sake of freedom of choice. It's going to be my first long distance trail and I've no idea how I'll feel or how much distance I'll be able to do each day so am making sure I've got options if I decide I've had enough and can't push on to the next town...

Re: Dried food

Freeze dried nonsense here, I like an easily made 1000 calorie meal, and a clean pot afterwards, also means I can make my coffee while the meal is hydrating. Summit to eat macaroni cheese is awesome, tbh I've not really had a bad meal from their range. I wouldn't be too bothered on WHW though, as th...

Re: Winter cooking stove

Speedster stoves are mega cheap and really good, I started off using them, have then moved onto gas, but will still use them now and again. If a gas canister is low, it'll struggle in the cold even more.

Re: Looking to buy a new 2 man tent

Second i don't like using walking poles (i do realise for certain walks they are a necessity) have never got on with them so would prefer a two skin poled tent. The scarp is two skinned pole tent, it doesn't use walking poles. I'm a bit of an MSR fanboy these days, have a Freelite 1 for summer use,...

Re: Looking to buy a new 2 man tent

In any of those types of tents I've had, that's a 10 second job, whip the pole out, leave everything else as it is.

Not an issue.

Re: Lanshan; a question.

My Lanshan 2 didn't come with a syringe either, but it definitely hadn't been taped or sealed. If they've started doing it now, ideal, will be fairly easy to tell by looking at it.

Re: Pacer Poles

Spring loaded poles are dung IMO.

That's good the poles are allowing her to get out again, pacer poles have been about for ages, I've never fancied them tbh, I like the flexibility of positions that my standard poles give me tbh.

No, they (3FUL) all need done, it's a cost saving that many tent manufacturers do tbh.

Re: Scottish highlands long distance paths - recommendation?

Have a look at folks TGO challenge routes, some belters available online. Not waymarked, but CWT isn't either.

I reckon a few days from either end of the cairngorms, doing a loop taking the lairig ghru and then lairig an laiogh would be brilliant.

Re: Newbie with sore legs and feet

Aye, that's my thoughts too. Particularly if you're only loading up, say, twice a month through winter, never really doing it often enough to get used to it.
