Oh yes, MK, I put the loops on my lovely Buffalo pile mitts - and then had to face the "did your mummy put a clean hanky in your pocket as well?" brigade.
Still, I have the gloves and they can blow on their fingers. Everything that goes in the side pockets is attached to my bag in some way, more as a nod to my failing memory than anything else.At my age dropping stuff on the move is bad enough, in fact anything that involves moving from the upright position, but dropping stuff in the wind may involve breaking into a trot as well. I'm sticking with the loops.
You can get good OS based 1:50000 and 1:25000 from Streetmap by going through this link. If you're running e.g. Quo at 1:50000 you can type in the grid ref in the link and get the same area in 1:25000. The map appears in a new window. It's printable.
