Re: Trangia stoves

Re: Thermarest Evolite vs Exped Synmat UL

Love to hear how you get on @robing.
I'm in the market for a eXped Downmat 7 but open to suggestions. I'm not going for "lightweight" anything because I tend to carry less than most it seems.

Fair enough but I won't be fitting a £50 chainset on my £1k+ bike. Prefer to go for a quality product.
Cheers anyway.
