    Journey to Vanlife stage 2 about to start

    Article: SnugPak: Insulated Jungle Travel Blanket

    I have the XL Jungle Blanket that I use on it's own during summer or as a topper/sitting around blanket during the winter. As a suggestion, if you wrap one end with shockcord & then flip it so the bunched end is inside at your feet, it acts similar to a basic quilt & doesn't move around too much.

    Sold Reductions: Luxe Minipeak, Terrava Skrama, Gerber Strongarm and more...

    I'm surprised the Luxe MiniPeak hasn't sold yet at that price. I have one and have used it in all weathers without any problem. Honestly can't fault it.

    STILL looking for a new tent!

    Also worth having a look at the Luxe Minipeak II, bit heavier than the Hexpeak but comes with the inner & simpler to put up. Both the Hexpeak & Minipeak II are stocked by backpackinglight who also stocks poles & pole extenders etc.

    Will check out the Cyflect tape. I've tested the Nitecore Tini out, even smaller than I expected but great bit of kit and ridiculously bright. The RGB light is an interesting little thing, spent a lot of my working life in electronics/engineering prototyping etc so have a soft spot for lumps of...
