one funny item of note wrt head torch around the neck - I have a longish white beard and if I put the torch under my beard it "lights up" - a side effect of the white whiskers I think - interesting to see but of limited use for walking around at night

:lmao:

Good post. There are however Thermarest versions that are much warmer. The Thermarest NeoAir All Season and the NeoAir XTherm have very high R values, more than twice that of a closed cell foam pad.

Hi Ross, how do you get on with the noise of those things? I find the NeoAirs all crinkle and rustle when you move - like trying to sleep on a crisp/chip packet.

Very light though.

Excellent post. Made me do a quick evaluation of my own kit to reassure myself its OK as it is. I'd been flirting with swopping my tent for a tarp but you reminded me how much I hate midges.

Re body weight. I've lost 28lbs (equivalent to the weight of my pack) and feel much better for it. I take Banyuls rather than port as its local to me, but for the same reasons.

If carving a spoon in the woods and the call of nature hits.....don't...whatever you do....get your sandpaper and toilet paper bags mixed up, in low light it's a painful mistake :lmao:
