    To ventile or not to ventile - advice needed

    In all fairness, I have to agree with a lot that has been posted by RG598, I have not seen anything on here or the web that has convinced me that Ventile is this wonder fabric. Its just an over priced cotton coat :) So I think I might get myself a SAS windproof smock off ebay.

    To ventile or not to ventile - advice needed

    I think that if I was getting too hot and started to sweat the logical thing for me would be to remove my jacket :)

    Thats a shame I used to like Lovejoy. Have you got any of your articles on Ventile?? would really like to read them. Just thinking of getting a westwind Ventile.

    Hi Zingmo. I watched a clip on youtube, not sure if the guy turned them inside out. I just followed the instructions on the pack. I have ordered a couple of new ones I will try your suggestions. Thanks Frogo

    VAPALUX M320 Help and Advice.

    I was lucky enough to have had a Vapalux for Christmas, unfortunately I seem to be having problems with the mantles i.e. holes appearing after ignition. I have tried two replacement mantles but the problem is still happening. Is there an alternative mantle I could use? Could there be a quality...

    First time using Parachute / Shelter

    Does anyone know where I can purchase a chute similar size to the one Rik is using? I did purchase one recently but it was a cargo chute and way too big. Thanks
