Sadly I’m going to return them just a bit tight still the search continues
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.
I’m a wide fitting
Paramo Katmai shirt in grey. Don’t seem to be many around. Lovely silky material.
I've had a couple in the past... They're a great bit of kit and Deceivingly adaptable.
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.
ive not but id actually like to have my Blue superfeet insoles in them ..but with the stock insoles I think the right is just a bit tight and this at 3 sizes above my normal
ill have a look ..just need to reconfirm I can return these,sure I I can as I did ask that..from climbers corners too
Looks like most gone
It was the Supertrac Kinablu.
they do have 11 which is my norm size
how were they are they ?
Through PayPal the Klymit raft was £102.09p inc delivery.
I'm trying to think of hikes where loch crossings would come in to justify one!
Sometimes its nice to have a little fire to cook on
10 litres of meths (for a stove, naturally..) - £26.83 inc p&p
Slightly better value that 0.5 litre for £4 at Wilko's....
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.
I just buy it from Go, seems okay.
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
Guess I couldn't imagine why anyone would buy methanol "shrugs"
