Belt: I didn't think of that yeh, okay that makes sense as well as the knives and link. You can tell we've never had much experience with knives!
Bivvi bag: There's no problem getting a bivvi bag (which one yet i'm not sure) but I was under the impression that we'll be sleeping on reindeer skins on the floor, then our down mats, then our sleeping bags so presumed we didn't need them in the tent. Is it the floor surface thats the issue (i.e no or just general knocks, dirty etc from being used all week, or extra warmth?
Would it be wise to get a army bivvi which is massive so that the down mat can fit inside then? Being tall (6ft 3) very few more mainstream bags (Rab, Terra Nova) seem long enough for my sleeping bag nevermind getting a down mat in.
Woody: I may have missed a response but is it still okay to hire one sleeping bag for the week? I think you said you were waiting for other responses and supply.
