    Thanks @Lempo and @WilliamC for quick work. I've cancelled that one and will get what Lempo said.

    Plane tickets to do the Tour du Mont Blanc in 2 weeks!

    As well as a rain skirt and odouproof Smelly Bags (if someone has used them, I'd be curious to know how you've found them)

    This is the one you want, it's smallest Anker one in Europe/UK and supports PD.

    I don't know what phone you have, but if you have an iPhone, you can get USB C PD - Lightning cable and that will charge your iPhone quicker. Sorry, not familiar with the equivalent Android specs.

    Thanks lempo, yes I cancelled the other order and got the Anker Atom PD and the power bank etc that you advised. I think all this is well worth the investment as refuges may well be uncomfortable about people going in and out to charge their phones so the more chance I have of doing it over 30 mins while having a coffee somewhere the better. Also with all this super speed I don't think I'll bother carrying a solar charger, which I may have done otherwise given the limitations on access to refuges this year. Or maybe i will, haven't decided on that yet

    Iphone. I have a lightening cable to c already for my phone.

    My daughter bought me some expensive walking shoes,should help with knee & lower back problem, she works in that footwear sector. Must admit that I have never worn a more comfortable pair of shoes,but a few miles on them will be a good test. Also bought me a some stand on scales, is she trying to tell me something?

    The Zpacks Arc Haul; pricey but as they say "because you're worth it". After adding the jewellery: lumbar pad, belt & shoulder pocket, internal ‘wallet’, back shock cord & pole ‘stow on the go’ the weight comes in at a respectable 826g.
    The main compartment is supposedly 49L, my impression is that it is a pretty ‘generous’ 49L; much more than 25% extra room when compared with the Durston 40L pack. A bit of a sloppy ‘fill’ to adjust the frame/ shoulder straps, 10kg gross, it carries very well; all set now for its’ first trip :)

    After a walk along Stanage Edge followed by a pint I popped into Alpkit, Hathersage. I emerged some while later with a Dirtbag self inflating mat, Aero180 self inflating mat, 3 numo mats and a brewkit stove.

    Grand total of £30.

    They came from the rejects/returns and junk area :).

    One of the numo's needs a puncture repair and clean. Fortunately there was a numo repair kit amongst what I got.

    The aero has some delamination issues but usable.

    The brewkit has valve issues so have to see if it can be fixed.

    Overall though 4 decent mats for £30 ain't bad.

    The valves on the Numo's work with an old style Thermarest pump sack which is a nice plus.
