Re: Future plans.....??

TGO Challenge in May but can't see that happening, and I want another crack at my Argyll loop I had to blob on due to injury last year.

Finding the motivation to plan anything is the hardest part at the moment for me.

Re: Simplest/cheapest way to increase the 'cold-temp' of spd boots

Not read the whole thread but I’ve loads of reflectix type stuff if you need any Shaf, single or double layer

You could cut a couple out to match the insole shape and see if it helps? I’ve used it inside boots for winter camping.

Ping me your addy and I’ll get some in the post for you

Re: Heavy weight day to day coat recommendations

The Fjern eVent stuff looks pretty good on SP, there was a shop in Chamonix selling their stuff last year so I had a touchy feel of it. There were some cheap OMM Aether smocks on ebay last week, not sure if they've gone yet. Columbia Outdry were on Amazon for £90 too I still like a layered approach,...
