    If anyone's using a Galaxy S4 out on the hills, Amazon has the Lifeproof Nuud case for £25 for the next 3 hours.

    Took a punt on the Midge Jacket. Postage cost more than the jacket! Beatons jackets are £20 with same postage charge. Will I ever use it?

    I wouldn't be without mine from June through to September, but I'm a wuss when it comes to clouds of midges :)

    I've been thinking about getting a Beatons jacket. It's a good idea and probably doesn't weigh much.

    B'stard! I was after a basha but succumbed to an Intergral Designs Siltarp 1 in the sale! I must be getting soft.

    Midge Jacket arrived yesterday. 118g for the gram weenies. Good quality workmanship as well. For a fiver, it's a real bargain.

    I'm currently thinking about restoring my Vango, force ten which was given to me. Its a one man version rather than the big ones, that google images come up with.

    It wont be light but certainly robust. My brother used to laugh at light weight tents so he tells me. The ground sheet IS truly a bath tub. Or a pond liner, It deserves to be restored.

    The perpetual Go Outdoors sale has these in a lot of sizes - Mammut Mercury GTX Boots - half price £77.50

    Havent got a pair but like the Mammuts i've tried on, thought it was a decent bargain as boots tend to rrp @ £140 these days. Some other things in the sale.

    Have you got a link to the inner Peter, I think I might have asked you this last time but can't remember what you said, maybe add one into your blog post too.

    Do you think the net will be midge proof or just mossie proof?

    I just bought one of those to replace my Multimat Air Superlight and as far as I can see they're the same thing, colour and branding are different but that's it. They need to be treated fairly carefully but are good mats. (my Multimat was fine until a "friend" started playing silly buggers with a knife and put a large cut in one of the outer tubes)

    They're that £16 in a few places, and I think they're good value.

    I might be being really thick here but I still can't see a link to the tent inner you have described. Sounds great though, I have thought about making something similar in the past. For £26, I'll save myself the hassle and get one ordered if you would be so kind as to point me in the right direction.

    Did you get stung for any customs charges?
