    @paul I made an order last night (when else one would do online shopping) but I made a minor cock up, I accidentally ordered a zippered pot bag when I meant to order the cinch version. Just wanted to check if you got the email? Cheers.

    No problem. I'm sure it came through but I don't check my mail at the weekend. All emails replying to an order confirmation are automatically added to the notes section on the order so I'll make sure it's changed for you.

    Received a Metaflex Insulated pot sack (the one designed to fit the MSR Titan kettle) last week. Used it with my Evernew 900 mug pot this weekend - and it's great! After 10 minutes dinner was perfectly cooked & steaming hot! A great piece of kit!

    I made something similar to this early in the year but after using it if wasn't correctly proportioned and the mesh wasn't what I wanted. Found a better supplier now and have the materials I want. I'm really happy with it and should get some out before chrimbo. Hybrid cuben with powermesh front pocket and an internal cuben slip pocket for cards or notes. Should take the vast majority of phones inside and out or sunnies, snacks, GPS etc. 25g but sealing will add a little more

    The resemblance is uncanny :D

    Just a thought...

    I ordered a rucksack strap bottle pocket that arrived today (TYVM) with the plan to use it with a 1L BeFree filter bottle but sadly the bottle is too big. The pocket could do with being maybe 1cm wider and 2-3cm taller.

    Ever thought of making something that would fit one of these very popular filter bottles?

    I am looking at a new design for a delux bottle pocket but I need to order some specific hardware that has a huge minimum order so I'm saving up. Stability is the issue once you go over 600-700 and I need to get my head round it further.

    I can appreciate the stability issue, especially with a flexible bottle.

    So most people know my view on sales. i seldom do them as i find it just upsets folk who paid full price and i never do it on cuben. So to jump on the BF bandwagon i needed to do something new

    I really tried for sub 2g but whilst its achievable in 0.5oz dcf they failed the destruction test too easily. Finally came out at 2.2g

    So have at it. Limited run of 15 have just gone live on the site and theres a short video that includes a totally non scientific strength test. my finger still hurt :roflmao:

    You have a headstart until dawn when i will plug them on social media. Possibly the most fun ive had in months for the least money i will earn this year :greedy:

    Thanks @paul - couldn't resist .... :)

    My old thru-hike "wallet" isn't exactly heavy (12gr) but close to dying. And yours is much prettier...

    I use my TreadLite twin zip wallet all the time now rather than a conventional wallet. It’s not so much the weight it’s the compactness and size :thumbsup:
