Hi all, long time lurker first time poster, live in Worcs and do most of my walking in the Lakes and north Wales with my better half. Mostly day walks but getting more into backpacking and wildcamping which means lots of time spent looking at kit, what to take, what not to take
Any advice greatly appreciated, look forward to talking with you all
Take stuff that means you'll be comfy - include the occasional luxury - but don't weigh yourselves down too much! Time spend ogling kit is time well spent
Welcome to OM!
Hi Pete. Welcome to OM. Glad to hear you've stopped that lurking - very unhealthy.
Kate's right! Outdoor-Kit-Porn is highly rewarding - an essential part of the whole Outdoor Experience.
Hi Pete welcome ... l
Thanks for the welcome all ,
I don't know what it is about kit but I can spend hours looking on t'internet Gore-Tex, Event, Paramo, inner first, outer first, big porch, small porch it's all great and of course it's always nice to reward yourself with a trawl around the shops after a day's walking.
You're right about weight and comfort being the priorty I keep telling myself I'm not addicted Kit always evolves ........................
