It was a pretty a cold & wet OMM at the weekend! I guess it is already tried and tested by now, but the down Gillett/vest was perfect Essential after 7hours of running. Well worth the small pack size (I used a sandwich bag to vacuum pack it even smaller). It worked well as a pillow too once I had warmed up in my sleeping bag. I wonder if anyone had ever made a down pillow before ?
Pleased I chose the H18ORR shorts too. The added warmth& protection against the bitterly cold wind was much appreciated!
