I’ve got the none Desert version called the Racer, Insanely small when packed but surprisingly warm, I used mine for the CWT in September a few years back

I googled "inner gimp" and this came up. I believe PHD offer these outfits on the "dark" part of their website?

They had a nice hooded down jacket in M when I was browsing last week. But I talked myself out of it, I don't need another insulated jacket!

I continue to wait (futiley) ((is that a word?)) for a K-series Waferlite Jacket to go into the Bargain Box at 90% off.

The HyperLamina Spark is now even cheaper. It was a bargain at £100 but at less than £70, it's even betterer.

When that site popped up, I thought I'd ended up at Aldi, and was looking at a giant "Kevin the carrot"

Not sure where to post this or even if I should but

there is a Raleigh Firefly M that looks in good nick over on CTC Forum for £15.

https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=134217

Nothing to do with me just thought someone might want to rescue it given the recent best bike love fest.

It's in excellent condition. I'd originally intended to break and sell the components, but it's just too good to split.
If it doesn't sell at this bargain price of £15 before Xmas, I'll split it in the new year.

Nuffin' to do with bikes, but maybe useful for moving one's bike and one's self to a different location - the start point of a BaM for example.

CrossCountryTrains 25% off journeys between 13th - 31st January (JUST missing our Winter Event - blast). Advance Singles. Can add railcards on top too. Code "JAN25". Mike could use it to get to Scotland :wink: .

They also have the Thermarest equivalent (bit heavier) at £15: https://georgefisher.co.uk/collections/ ... 0-l-orange

Are they cross-compatible the other way? i.e. could you use a Thermarest pump sack to inflate an Exped mat?

I doubt it, the Snozzle fits internally into the Exped valve, and has to be forced over the Thermarest valve, which can be a faff with cold fingers. I saw an article a while ago where someone had shaved a little bit off the inside diameter of the Snozzle valve to make it a better fit on Thermarests, but I haven't bothered.

Cheers - probably best to avoid that combination then.

Ordered myself 2 in large... 1 for me and another for a mate (could be on here if someone that likes such a thing wins the cold bivy comp :-bd .. just saying). Expecting decent things and it has the Yorkshire rose on :grin:

Is this gonna be a strong bit of kit to use as a multifubction drybag and pillow (stuffed) and whatever else.. or is it flimsy (not that thermarest are known for flimsiness)

I use my Snozzle as a liner inside my rucsac when backpacking, and it's easily strong enough for that. I wouldn't use it as a standalone drybag though.

Yeah, I ordered one in large for myself (being a Yorkshire ex-pat). Mine came this morning and looks to be decent quality and the full zip which will be nice for ventilation on hot summer days (remember those? :lol: ) It's pretty tight on me but hopefully the downward trajectory that my weight is on will continue and it'll be a better fit by the time it's warm enough to wear it. Thanks for the head's up techno mail.
