Fatty Tim I tried a pair on recently in Keswick and was seriously impressed especially by the price of £350! Thats said the Forest is probably what I'd go for which is about £210. They felt great and if my current and new boots don't work out I'll get some. I did go up a size to get comfy. I'm a size 10 which is just over a 44 and the size 45 fitted very well.
Hi Maria, as I've not been there before can you let me know what I'll need to take in the way of bedding etc.? Is there a shower? One between all of us? And do you recall if there's a microwave? Is this another Blacksail i.e. NO heating?
I'm not sure when I last used a sleeping bag or which one I used????
Hi Gordon, can't remember where I got all those negative reports but there were a few of them. Glad to hear of your more positive experience. I have tried a pair of Altberg boots on at a shop. They weren't the best fit of all the boots I tried on, so as Fatwalker says get the boots that fit.
