    I wore almost 4 years only shorts while living in Thailand and NZ, apart from a couple of months when I was working in an office and only then in the office. I can do it in the UK until the temps go below 10, then I start feeling the cold and have to put on leggings.

    Vertical baffles on a down jacket seems a very dubious idea.

    Down knickerbockers (i.e. knee length) are great over normal trousers for warmth in bed and around camp; the shorter length means that the bottoms don't get wet from snow or vegetation. I've been using the Pajak ones for a couple of years.
    Those MH ones look very drafty though.

  4. The ones I'd been temped by were the Mammut synthetic ones, for camping use in the summer and ski touring in the winter...

    Maybe it prevents the eggs from overcooking.

    I quite like the red one, but that will never replace my silk Paisley smoking jacket around camp.

    Don't know the last time I saw someone smoke a pipe, at least not with tobacco in.

    Woops. Non smoker. The wee pipe is real corn cob but never been used.

    I love these. They have a Tudor, Walter Raleigh edge to them. Very dashing. Should be worn with a gilet.

    This is the only robe I'm interested in for walking.
    My two favourite robe wearers of all time!
    Shintaro on the left sports the ultralight robe and Tombei 'The Mist' on the right carries off the whole ensemble with elan.
    No need to worry about these lads Mole-they can climb and -jump off tall buildings, fly through the air, wrestle, sword-fight.....a bit of cross country skiing or climbing -pfff just too easy, these lads would just be laughing. Hai
