Re: In search of a good night sleep

Tried Expeds, Thermarest,, Cots and nearly everything else raning from £30 to £250 and the best for me is a £36 Coleman DuraRest Single . Downside is you need a pump but a £5 one that plugs into the cig lighter works a treat. Used it for a long trip and had a comfortable good nights sleep every night

Re: 400 or 250

I had the 250 and found it was very revvy and the engine was working hard for what I wanted it for. I now have a 440 and the torque is so much better so when I mess up it simply plugs away and keeps going. Funnily enough I find the 440 much more usable as its not so twitchy on the throttle.
