    Have you tried swapping the insoles for some thinner ones? La Sportiva insoles are usually quite thick. It won't help if the shoes aren't long enough, though.

    The colours have put me off in the past. The grey is a little darker than I’d like but neutral unlike the various attempt at check patterns over the years.

    I'm trying to think of hikes where loch crossings would come in to justify one!

    It's about time for you folk to switch to ethanol as meths stinks.
    Bio-ethanol is easily sourced cheaply on eBay for ~£30 for 12L.

    Norman Reeves of this parish and Stormin' Stoves fame, told me that he mixes 70% ethanol 30% methanol. Still plenty of heat with no smell and a cleaner burn. I purchased 5 litres of virgin grade methanol 99.85% purity for £9.99 from Amazon.

    95% bioethanol will burn cleanly with the right stove set up. Strong wind can lead to sooting, though.

    I kind of like the smell of meths, takes me back to school days and DofE trips with trangias.

    are there any downsides to using bioethanol?

    99.5 % ethanol ????
    When I used 99% ethanol in medical laboratory it was heavily regulated by the Excise folks - every drop had to be accounted for.
    At 99.5% purity does it have any de-naturant in it - to stop it being suitable for "consumption" ?? Otherwise it should be taxed under the same regulations as Whisky et al.

    He says 99.58% methanol, Cathy.

    Duhh …. I should put my specs on :oops:
    Guess I couldn't imagine why anyone would buy methanol "shrugs"
    Sorry.
