Come on gents we need a review and picture of these in use.At the minute it seems as if everyone who's had one is afraid to comment,is there a reason for this?There must be a few people waiting for a review before the buy one.
Mine arrived weeks ago, Thank you to LBL, Wayland, Hilltrek and anyone else who contributed to this initiative. I am really pleased with the quality and design, I have not had chance to use it yet but I intend to take it with me on the Devices to Westminster Endurance canoe race at Easter. I will post how I got on with it after the event!
Took mine out on a canoe trip last weekend. It was most useful, seeing service as both a ground sheet and a waterproof.
My companion for the day (also the owner of the canoe) tried it and was impressed by how light and comfortable it is. It doesn't get in the way when paddling and is very quiet.
I must remember to take a spare belt next time, howaever as I nearly came a cropper getting out when the hem got under my feet!
Im very impressed by the quality of the workmanship, it looks and feels bomb proof. First thoughts were that it feels light, but its about the same weight as army surplus ones. Its a bit bulkier, but it still fits snugly in the Viper large modular pouch (which I use as a butt pack) with room for about 10 m of 11mm rope below it.
Its a classy bit of kit and I, for one, am glad I did decide to shell what at first glance seemed a lot of cash; its worth every penny, IMHO.
Thanks to all concerned in bringing this to fruition. :You_Rock_
