Re: Will the paths survive Covid-19?

My nearest Corbett - Shalloch on minnoch - has a visible path for the first time I can remember. Not a bad thing in my book.

3D maps

Openly admitting to being a map nerd, I particularly love wall mounted 3D maps, awesome things to pore over! I only have the lake District and Dorrigo Glencoe/Nevis map, anyone know anyone else who does them?.

Re: Mountain Rescue

Nonsense.

And I'd suggest renaming your post as I'm sure Scottish MR wouldn't want their name associated with such bunkum.

Re: Sweat much? Clothing Recommendation Required

Aye, bin the cotton, and learn to set off a little cooler than you'd want to. Always seeing folks setting off at start of walks dressed for an arctic expedition, then stripping off as soon as the hill starts proper.

Re: Recommendation required - women's trousers

If it's cold but not gonna be wet, my good lady will wear thicker leggings, she also has a cracking pair of thermal trousers from Decathlon, they're brilliant, I think these are this years equivalent.

Re: Donald Bagging on a Mountain Bike

Where are you based peter? I've done a fair few munro's and corbett's on the bike, as said above though, often the donald's don't have as good a path as popular hills do. Rhinns of Kells is a good option, you'll be pushing up from forrest lodge, but it's a lovely broad ridge to pedal along, from mea...

Re: Gaiters for the small of feet

I've got the Montane ones (black with blue sole loop) for using hill running, they're excellent for keeping stones out (and water too!).

Re: Gaiters for the small of feet

The Ayrshire Alpette is 5'1" and size 4, rab women's trek gaiters have done her proud, even on Galloways worst.

Re: Variation in device measurements, what is acceptable?

Optical hr work on some folks, not on others, and they're not consistent, sometimes mine (on all 3 of the garmin's I've had) works when exercising, but most of the time it reads too high. But, they work perfectly well for non exercise use, day to day, and resting hr data, so they have use IMO. I onl...

Re: Comprehensive Tent Design Review

It is very tempting to buy copies of products made in the Far East, but where would European design and manufacturing be if we all chose to buy products from companies playing fast and loose with intellectual property and benefiting from R&D that they have not themselves invested it? What if lo...

Re: Back pack for wildcamping

Definitely. I went a walk up my local corbett yesterday, with everything I'd need in my pack for a winter overnight, food, tent etc, even though it was just an up n down (the things we do in lockdown!) Just to test out my new pack - Osprey Exos 58. Loads of space, could have got a fair bit more in t...
