    Tony has confirmed the grey one in the photo is a sample, he's expecting the production grey to have a logo the same size as the red but he wont be able to confirm for sure until they arrive.

    Can't make my mind up which I prefer, might ask @Diddi 's opinion...;)

    What do you want to see? Not much more to show. There's a gap in the top between the tape for the handle to insert/remove the bag when required.

    Not arrived yet but joined the Mass drop for Toaks Ti shot "glasses" and am seriously thinking about the offer on a Jetboil Minimo...

    Edit: I think i will end up spending my cash on an MSR WindBoiler as if I need to simmer, I will use the Kovea Spider.. the "All in One" would be for TGOChallenge/similar where it's probably going to be windy and all I want is hot water for dried meals...

    I'm tempted with those Toaks set too. But I only want one, not four!

    A fridge for the home.
    Son thought it was time we had one. He doesn't like our 'cheese drawer' in summer:biggrin:

    I wouldn't have minded seeing it from the top as I could t quite make out what it looked like, but that's cool, I'm camping with Paul from tread lite I'm sure it won't be too much trouble for him to tell me about it!!!
    Thanks for the reply though.

    Sadly not an online shop: in-shop bargain corner at The Overlander in Mong Kok (Hong Kong), not even listed amongst the website sale items.

    Aiguille detachable pockets. Turns the Exped Thunder 70 into a monster load carrier (an extra 17L). A bit heavy at 388g per pair but bomb proof in tough Cordura. I stuck a tent in each pocket (Laser Comp and F10Nitro Lite 200) to show the capacity. Probably a bit of overkill but if I ever do a trip to somewhere like Sarek, it gives enough flexibility to take 10-12 days food. Also means as the volume drops, I could take the pockets off and stow them. Surprised how well the simple attachment worked. 2kg for an 87L rucksack is not too bad.

    Not sure those would be compatible with my elbows....

    I think they sit far back enough not to interfere.

    They do when I've used them. I only have the small ones now. Gobsmacked anyone here has bought such 'trad' gear though! :)

    Just ordered another pair :) pretty much all I've worn since January for everything, work, hills, woods, shops etc. They're destroyed now but my average walking is about 10 miles a day and mostly on tarmac. Maybe 1000 miles. The foam in the sole is a bit squashed and my feet have started to feel a little fatigued after a long day because of that. Really like them though.

    Amazing really, i thought the first SC600 was small (far right) but it's shrunk as well as gotten more powerful

    I may have a bit of a Zebralight tendency :bag:

    The buttons look much more recessed now... a good thing.

    That's some collection!
