Fly fabric
I'd like to get hold of some of their SuprSil fabric but I don't suppose there's much chance of that?

Synthetics not fire resistant
I think you missed - at least my biggest bugbear with synthetics - the lack of inherent fire resistance. I mean you can spend literally hundreds of dollars on some new piece of equipment, pass w...

Petzyl Myo XP
I owned one of these but had to send it back as the electronics developed a fault - kept flashing. Still preferred it to my Black Diamond Icon headlamp. But a new 30% brighter & longer battery...

You can always just rest the lid on top of the pan while cooking if the stiffness is an issue.

Sport EYZ ultralight sunglasses
Sorry to cast a downer on this but the plastic pot it comes in is too small. Incredibly hard to get it back in. And if you can it wraps too tight and after not too long creases and then cracks the l...

Rab Carrington Quantum Elite Top Bag
I've had one of these for years and although the quality and price were good I always felt Rab / O.D. made a mistake by just leaving a sleeping pad shaped uninsulated patch in the base. To put ...

I have the 05 version white-ish, now yellow-ish after my girlfriend washed it. It's seen a hell of a lot of use, not sure if it's lost some loft over time but I don't consider it warm e...

Aloksak O.P 12.5 x 20"

I know there's a fashion for 1/2 length zips but I like the full length one on this. The insulation could have been stitched in place through the lining only and it could be warmer but some how I...

Teva X-1 Shoe
I had high hopes for these. Confirm they are very light and airy. But too tight across the toes for me. Why do some shoes look like pointed pebble s at the toe?? My feet don't look like that. ...
