I happened to be going to Derbyshire anyway and realised the date matched so stopped by on the way. I wasn't really looking for anything in particular but ended up coming away with a bundle of 7 different size dry bags for £10 and a small 20 litre rucksack (I think it's the Gourdon?) also for £10.
Based on what I saw there it was possible to get some good bargains (sleeping bags, down jackets, sleeping mats) if you knew what you were looking for and what you wanted, so maybe I should be a bit better prepared next time! Did anyone else here go along?
You lucky, lucky b*st*rd!
Let me know next time you go and I'll give you a list
how much for the pds fenwick?
oops sorry I forgot to put the price down, £90 each. I think the PD400s were £70. The SHs were cheaper respectively I think but I just got the bags I wanted and got out of there
From what I could see after I'd put my bags in my car and went back in for another mooch the two dozen bags or so that were there had gone in about 5/10mins I guess
Definately I got a PD400 last year for £45

How many do you need?!
The 600 is for me (or my wife who sleeps cold) and the 800 is for a friend

are they really as narrow as they say? i would like a pd 400 but i am quite a big bloke.
As I'm a short arse, 5' 6" I wouldn't like to say what the fit would be like, I'm thinking cosy. Their website gives the following info, I don't know if that helps any
I'm also a shortarse (5'5" on a good day) and the PD400 is about right for me in terms of width, basically it fits quite closely across the chest and shoulders which is what it's designed to do. Depending on how 'big' you are this may or may not be a problem - I imagine if you've got a wide chest you'd end up not being able to bring your arms up inside the bag very easily.
In terms of length there's probably a good 8 inches or so of empty bag down the bottom when I'm in mine so the info from the site that fenwick posted seems about right.
my Dad used mine a few times this year- He's an XL, 6'2" and it was too tight around his shoulders/chest to loft properly. He couldn't do it up fully. Luckily it was early sept, so not too cold, though he did get cold one night (went down to 4C that night)
