Re: Slumit tents, worth it?

Thanks, just the review I was looking for. I camp in Scotland a lot as well, you say it keeps the midges away successfully but I just found this review on the Cub2 on ebay: "The netting isnt fine enough to stop midges and being from Scotland its pretty much useless to me love the tent design and qua...

Re: Slumit tents, worth it?

I use a Slumit Cub and am a big fan. Very easy to put up and take down. How long did you have it for and how often used it? Looked at the Cub 2 a few years ago but then decided to go for the Vango instead. Hoped they will have come with an improved version / design after all these years but no, eve...

Slumit tents, worth it?

Anyone using one, are they any good? I know, another tent thread :roll:

Sony Xperia Z3 or Z5 motorcycle cradle holder

Used it for years, fantastic bit of kit. This is a dedicated Brodit holder. The holder is for a Z3 as it has the magnetic charging pins, but when I changed my phone to a Z5 it holds it as well only needed to charge via normal USB cable. I changed my phone a while ago to a Xperia XZ, although it is 0...

Re: Rain suit recommendation

German army Goretex--with salopettes---even keep the hood and put your helmet over the top--no rain will get down your neck. Buy XXL and just throw it on when it looks like rain--the generous jacket sits over the crutch just like an old dispatch riders coat--super long zips so that the bottoms can ...

Re: Rain suit recommendation

I don't mind the odd shower, I have goretex trousers and jacket, they can take a lot of rain but after a while the outer textile layer gets wet, heavy and cold. Not exactly comfortable getting in them next day after a night camping. I need a rainsuit for long rainy rides, (2 days +). The most import...

Rain suit recommendation

Looking for a rain suit that's one piece, most important needs to have side zips( both sides) from chest all the way to the bottom so you can quickly put it on without taking your boots off. All I can find is rubbish suits with one zip from neck down to one knee, or only trousers with the zipped sid...

Re: Cooling vest recommendation - again

Thanks but not what I'm after, nothing in there stays cold for more than 20min and I need them to last at least 2-3h.

Re: Vango Omega 350

Great tent and a good price. I have the Omega 250 as well,plenty of room inside for 2, while the porch takes gear, panniers, top box. The 350 must be even more roomy.
This will sell quick! (thumbs)
