    Got a hankering

    GEC, but then I am a gentleman of a certain age, also they look great, in a traditional, even retro way. They hold a great edge and are very well made. No sensible cop is going to bat an eyelid should you have to turn out your pockets ( in my case, of my Barbour Tarras bag ). Sub 3, none...

    Down bag for Scandi winter use, suggestions please

    Got the kit Chris thanks, done a few winter arctic camping trips, I use a tarp or build a shelter, so have the keeping warm part generally, covered. I think, reading the helpful replies, that I just have to accept that £200 will probably not get me a decent down bag. Thanks again, as I said...
