    A couple of bathtubs to try with the tarp and tent. Trekkertent tapered one is in lightweight slipperiness. the 3F is not tapered, and is a heavier gauge, to try out on more rough terrain.

    Will post updates on the Aricxi thread, when I get round to finding some spare time.

    I have a recently acquired 3F bathtub, performed very well during a horrendous storm at Pic de Midi d'Ossau in pretty rough ground.

    Mine arrived in 7 days, most surprised. It will take me longer to get round to trying it. :happy:

    Apart from standing out or dislike of the colour both of which I understand culturally or from a stealth perspective but I have absolutely found the brighter solid colours 'cooler' in real sun and heat. Your partner may need sunnies to look at you though.

    I will be interested about what you think of the corners of both bathtubs,and whether they hold their shape ok and if attachment points are any good.ive never used one before.

    Four AliExpress 'buffs' in assorted colours for a tenner, because they work as face coverings in shops etc without freaking/grossing me out the way the 'standard' masks do, and I'm too tight to buy the original Buffs other than for hiking.

    I like the way you just pick one (to match your outfit, obvs) and wear it around your neck, so all you have to do when entering a mandatory face-covering location is pull it up over your nose. My daughter's idea, bless her.

    It appears that Buffs may be worse than useless when used as face masks...

    Paramo torres sleeves brand new for 25 quid! :pompus: Seem to fit OK with various gilets Inc my old school torres one. Bit heavy at 220 grams but should be better than my cycling ones though.

    Picked up these from REI outlet. BA pads don't seem to come with pump sacks, so picked up the heavy one for a couple of $s while I decide what's the best way to inflate these.

    It seems that regular length is enough for me, as I tend to sleep with my feet hanging out of end of the bed anyways, just need to put an ass pad in the end of the mat.

    There are still OR echoes on Amazon in Medium. Grey or tomato. So I conclude you actually wanted orange

    I do have one, as my winter mat is Exped UL LW. I didn't know that one, so thanks for the tip.
