Official "Pay It Forward" thread

    This is the Pay It Forward thread for Trek Lite members to donate unloved kit on to others, to make this work some basic rules need to be in place.

    The concept is simple ..

    • Member A offers an item
    • Member B replies in thread that they would like that item
    • Member A mails item to Member B
    • Member B offers an item
    • Member C replies in thread that they would like that item
    • Member B mails item to Member C
    • etc etc
    Rules

    1. Members must have a minimum of 50 posts to take part.
    2. Member offering the item pays for the postage, unless other arrangements agreed. Because the forum is UK based, international claimants will have to discuss any extra postage when claiming items and be willing to pay the extra costs to post items.
    3. Member taking last item will offer up the next item in the thread
    4. This is not a thread to request free items
    5. Claimants must reply in the thread with an "I'll take it" to claim the item. PM's or voicing interest are not to be considered claims.

    I've decided to start off with 1 active item and see how it goes. I'll try to keep the active items and their status updated at the bottom of this thread in order to save people hunting for the posts with available items in them and hopefully prevent double claims and cunfusion.

    Lastly the rules will be reviewed and may change slightly as and when required, but the concept will remain the same.

    Current Active PIF item:

    Item: various options, see post #233 HERE
    User: @kiltedpict
    Status, unclaimed

    I'll take the Tyvek.
    I will have a rummage in my cordage box for something suitable.
    In fact, I might have something a bit more exciting, check back around 8pm.

    OK, I'm offering a hammock.
    DIY single layer 11' by 58" gathered end hammock in olive yellow 1.1oz/yd ripstop polyester.
    Rated at 175lb (80kg), so a bit too lightweight for me!

    I'll throw in a couple of tree straps too.

    I nearly bit, just for the knotty mods and weight for an edc on woodland bimbles and for my son to use... But the cake is too sweet for me to equal. Hopefully the taker will be equally as thoughtful with their offering.... Oh an the yellow lol ✌️

    I've back up if this doesn't go by a reasonable time?

    New offer.... 2 cam's or mechanical friends... I use these for hanging my hammock between rocks or one rock to a with straps... Great if there's a cave to hang in or a building with masonry.
    Maybe use them in the house or garage... Just chisel out a joint and use one instead of drilling and putting up a bracket...

    The pair weighs roughly 178g

    Aww, sod it.... I'll take the cams!
    I was holding off, thought it might seem a bit incestuous, but what the hell.
    I will go and have a rummage, see what I can dredge up.

    OK then, How about this?
    25 feet of Orange Reflective Dutch Wire
    From the Dutchware website, https://dutchwaregear.com/reflective-dutch-wire.html,
    a great, rigid rope made with a Dyneema core and a Dacron outer sheath with a reflective tracer. This rope acts like wire does and can hold its shape and because of the rigidness of the rope it is easy to loosen knots and it does not tangle easily.
    1.3mm thick and 1.31 grammes per metre
    Holds well in Pitcharpak's Cordlock10's, but not at all in Lineloc3's!

    LineLocs and guyline cord are hardly hammock stuff !
    And, surely, isn't it me who's supposed to be paying it forward here? Or are you offering me a get out of jail free card?
    Is that in the rules?

    OK
    Offering another alternative....
    2x 700m spools of Gutermann Mara 70 thread in black.

    So, now it's either, guyline cord, LineLocs, or Mara 70 thread.

    I meant to say that I may take the Skyline off your hands but first I have to find something to contribute to the PIF as a follow up and all my possibly redundant stuff is in a shipping container that will be delivered next week as I have just moved back to France. If, in the meantime, someone else goes for one of the three items you are currently offering then great.

    Hello all, I'm assuming it's OK to introduce two new active items mid-thread, hope it doesn't derail earlier offers.

    Both are MYOG fabrics from extremtextil that I never used:

    3m black ripstop nylon, PXT endurance coated, 60gsm (value about 40 quid)
    and
    3m 40d dark orange downproof ripstop nylon, 55gsm, 'second choice' (value about a tenner)
