Welcome!

Managed through carelesness to lose years of posts so it's time to start again - hey ho.
Plus, happily, I've been diverted recently by great trips to China and South Africa. Back on course now - sort of!


How optimistic was that comment! Almost a full year with no attention paid to content. The shame of it!
No prizes for guessing what will be top of the 2013 New Year resolutions.

Do more with less


If you’re looking for a versatile, ultra-lightweight pack which you can use all year round then GoLite’s (www.golite.com) classic Jam rucksack should fit the bill. Part of GoLite’s UltraLite series, the Jam backpack is a classic which uses the lightest, strongest, most sustainable fabric ever made – Tier 1 recycled nylon base yarn with very durable Dyneema gridstop. Weighing under 1 kilo and with a maximum capacity of 52 litres, the Jam can be reduced to carry 23 litres stably. It's available for both men and women in both medium and large sizes in a range of colours.
