Andy and I visited the first day of this new show at the NEC on the 25th Feb, and recorded several interviews for future Outdoors Station Podcasts with some of the stand holders. We also took some video to give people an idea of what they missed. It was located in one of the smaller halls which wasn't as full as it should have been. However it is early days and so I thought we would put together a short piece to show some of the highlights.
The new 2010 Evernew Pans are starting to arrive in the UK and this video covers what is currently available. The 600ml, 900ml and 1300ml flat pans which will nest into each other. The taller 640ml and 900ml pots, plus of course the fantastic Solo Set consisting of a matching 400ml mug and 750ml pot. We show the size and weight comparison and what will fit into each pan. All items are made form .3mm high grade Titanium and cold pressed which makes them a light grey in cool, lighter weight, more long lasting and durable. Chances are these pans will outlast your backpacking!!
Could this be the ideal solo cook set? Titanium pot, mug, meths stove, wood burner, windshield and all the associated extras at only 301g. Evernew are new to the UK, but in the US they are a well know Japanese manufacture using the highest possible quality .3mm Titanium.
The 2010 Shangri-La 3 from Golite is a shelter which can be purchased in component parts to suit your needs. The outer shelter, the inner nest, or just the floor. Saving weight and reducing the bulk in your rucksack. In this video we try to give you some idea of the features with some hints and tips along the way. We talk about base plates for poles, how to use extra shock cord and walking pole extender sections, to save taking the aluminium pole.
On a bitter cold winters day I get out the five most popular meths stoves for a demo. We discuss the features of each one and then time the burning duration. Includes the Vargo Triad, Vargo Decagon, White Box Solo, White Box Duo and the Trangia. Warning this is for enthusiasts only!
Many tarp tent users of the Golite Shangri-La 3, Shangri-La 4, Hex 3 or the Black Diamond MegaLight and MegaMid have to rely on a single strong pole as the tent support. This single pole can weigh as much as 500g, and if you are using a pair of walking poles this simple extender unit will transform them into a strong sturdy reliable support for only 40g! Save weight and bulk (and sleep well) with our backpackinglight.co.uk Walking Pole Extender Link!
This has to be one of the most useful small little gizmos for the outdoors person, who likes to get themselves in the big picture! Fun, simple and very effective. Simply screw onto the bottom of your compact camera or video camera and slide onto the tip of your walking pole. Instant wide screen views and just a whole bunch of fun!
