    Looks to be photos of 2 different packs IMO....check out the front pocket it's different also.

    Possibly 3 different packs? when you start looking at that pocket, 1 full mesh, 1 half mesh with badge, 1 half mesh without badge

    The last photo is by a Finnish hiker, Isko Salminen... thought I've seen it somewhere before.

    It could be that the seller has no photos/camera to take a photo of the pack, which would be odd since he sold a lens, so he clearly has a camera.

    Maybe he's just lazy, or maybe it's a con.

    Sorry, didn't check the listing in more detail initially.

    Or maybe you get all 4 packs for the price of one.

    Strange...I would question it if you really want it.

    Norrona Lofoten raw.... In lime, size medium... I was nearly tempted to jump on the rab alpha lite on sports persuit... But it won't be a patch on my Norrona raw...

    For Alpha 120, the equivalent would be the Rab Alpha Freak which might well be just as good the Norrona Raw. Actually, I'm sure the Norrona won't be a patch on my Alpha Freak.

    Apart from the norrona is a lot lighter and easier to put on/take off and has proven its self to me on numerous occasions on the hill and I can wear it to the pub or shops without looking like I'm taking it to far...

    Joking apart.. I'm chuffed you've found a garment your happy to shout about :thumbsup:

    Wether ones better than the other.... U till we've both had each jacket... Who knows?
    I know I've had mine over a year, wear it plenty, on and off the mountain/hill and have never thought about selling it.

    Quite so. I was pulling your leg shouting out about a jacket I've worn exactly five minutes but it's good to see that you think rubbishing something you've never worn is silly. :tongue:
    PS: I'll have more grounds for liking my Freak or not next month, once I've tested it in the snow. :biggrin:

    Good point as the original 2p inners is slightly lighter at 980g.

    Hexpeak V4A outer plus lighter AliExpress 3rd-party inner of your choice. A good setup at any price, and fantastic for under £200. Adding a full complement of proper stakes and cordage it'll all come in at about 1.25kg (assuming you use trekking poles) for the one-person, perhaps 1.5kg for two-person.

    I bought my Hexpeak in 2015, and frankly thought it'd not work well, but I was intrigued enough to want to try it. Not used any other tent since - says it all really.
