I must say I was very excited when the box arrived with the new Osprey Exos 58 rucksack. Initial impressions are excellent, the bag is light at just a shade over 1kg (the box it arrived in was heavier) and the attention to detail is very good. Loaded the Exos is comfortable although the waist strap does seem quite thin. Side pockets are well placed and there is a large pocket at the back for wet gear. We'll be testing the Exos over the coming few weeks so a full review to follow. All new review
New Thermarest Neo Air - All Season, this is the latest version of the Neo Air that will be in the shops in the near future. We've got one hear at BCUK and will be testing over the coming weeks. If you're at the Moot this year feel free to come and get an early peek!

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.

Put the tarp up today, had a good sleep, wind got up and rain came down and I'm making this up as I go along before anyone starts asking pedantic questions
