    I use these and they are excellent, unbreakable. I did have some MSR Carbon Core pegs, useless by comparison, snapped one on my first time out.

    Glad you find them OK @Chiseller, pleased for you. I have very high-arched feet, so I guess that my weight is not spread as well as someone who has flat feet. We are all different you know!

    Nowt to do with hiking and Trek-Lite* but I'm pretty chuffed by this jumble sale find: a pretty old 600 gr (620 in fact) Goldenberg polled house hatchet sporting the double eye mark of the brand's best steel quality (Styrian steel).





    * now that ultralight tables and chairs are discussed here, maybe we could expand to ultralight beer coolers and open a bush-lite sub-forum. ;)

    Been using some Carbon Core pegs since 2017 on non-stress points; still going strong.

    Have been rock bashed.

    I've never broken a carbon peg either after many many years using them. Admittedly I don't try to pummel then through rocks though :o o:

    Aircast A60 Ankle Support

    I might buy the other side but I've just bought one for now for the ankle I keep turning. [ADDED] These are the £25 per ankle ones, I balked at paying £42 for the next step up.

    A snug pack jungle blanket, destined to be cut in half and become Fraggle's bed and blanket for 3 season hiking. Should be about 400g when modded.

    A pair of hardly used Speedcross 3's to try out after not getting on with the Altras

    Pair of hammock tree straps to create a lighter/stronger suspension system for the hammocks.

    The one I got is supposed to be the new version and it comes with a much lighter Mylar collapsible water pouch

    I bought one on the earlier versions. Like @Chiseller mine is yet to be used in anger.
