Yay, the first blog post.
I contacted Giles from Drink-Safe a few weeks back regarding some of the excellent water purifiers that they produce, Giles is very help guy and we spent considerable time talking about the pros and cons of the different products that they deal with. Eventually he offered to send me some items to test, these are the Waterstraw, the Explorer Canteen 1.0 Litre, the Aquaguard Eliminator inline filter and the Drinksafe Waterbag Supalite green. Full details on all of these are available from http://www.drinksafe-systems.co.uk/products.php

Hot in from MSR is their Carbon Reflex 3 Ultralight tent. The carbon reflex is a tunnel tent with top pole to give extra support, the tent weighs just 2084g and initial impressions are good, quick to set up plenty of space inside. I'm planning on taking the Carbon Reflex 3 to Scotland for 3 weeks through the summer so a full review to follow, anyone attending the Moot can have a look there as well.

We finished yesterday at Llangorse lakes and whilst the students were getting changed for the trip
