A decent reduction for this brukit, £10 off. It's a pre-order though, so not sure the delivery date. I've used them in the past great kit!

It’s a flux capacitor I think.

Was going to post this. Anyone have one?
I've used friends out and about, they're very good. So much so I've bought one for myself at this price!

Just go to the website and watch video?
Does any one know how this compares to the jet boil range?

When you’ve got a checkpoint to make, painstakingly assembling your cooking system isn’t always an option.

So really ideal if you’ve lots of checkpoints you encounter day to day.

Also would like to know
There's a YouTube video comparing the two, in essence very little difference

90% as good as for half the price.
Excellent - right up until the moment you have to pack it all together and ralise the oly place to put the burner is back inside the manky pot!
Is am I right in saying it boils water in 3.30min as opposed to in a camping kettle (£7.99) in about 5 mins? Am I missing something?
I've used a jetboil for years, clunky but super efficient, especially with a coffee press for the morning wake up without leaving the bag. However for ultra lightweights it's a luxury.

If this is close at a much reduced price I would take the gamble.

I only use my jetboil for water either using boil in a bag or freeze dried food that I add water too. Much easier than worrying about cleaning.
Is alpkit gear good? Am looking for a lot of outdoors gear for a trip to Everest base camp and their down jackets seem reasonable and so do the reviews. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Not being funny but a trip to Everest Basecamp is a serious matter and I would expect anyone gearing up for it to have enough experience to know what kit to go for OR to have the experience of a team and manager to give pertinent advice ...
Having said that , Billie will be along to tell you exactly what kit you need and where to get it from

Thanks for the reply! I do have a good understanding in general, I do a lot of wild camping up here in the lakes. Just unfamiliar with alpkit gear and it seems very reasonably priced. I usually go for good gear like I have the msr windburner instead of this, however having looked at the good reviews of their gear for the price several times am just wondering if it really is all it’s cracked up to be.

I haven't actually done it but I think Everest Base Camp trek is a pretty straightforward walk. It ends at about 5300m so it doesn't go particularly high. It is easy to walk around at that kind of altitude in places like Peru and Bolivia. You can drive over 5000m there too.

Not had a down jacket but the alpkiy stuff I have used has always been good quality.
I'm a big fan of Alpkit and have a bit of their stuff including this. Has served me well. Boils water very fast and have done some other cooking in it although low heat/simmer is not advised in the instructions (it does work though). I also bought a small stand to allow me to use a regular pan. I am thinking of trying to reduce weight so ultimately this might have to go but for what it is and at this price it's very good.

Are you sure about that? Personally I find that I really notice the extra effort required when hiking above 3000m.
Altitude sickness can cut in above 2500m, with little regard to the patients fittness level.

Always been happy with Alpkit stuff, however they seem to suffer from stocking issues

Cheers. Just what I need for my kit list for doing the great glen next year.

I've done it and for me it became difficult for a couple of hours above 4000m but had 2 bods dropped out just over 2.5 so different bodies different affects, anyway, not supposed to have been a dig just my tuppence worth as it looked like the op was going raw.

As for driving at altitude I think the difference is the lack of a house on your back and lesser physicality means slower breathing thus better absorption...

You notice being at 3000-4000m but as long as you don't immediately go up to that height you shouldn't have any real problems. Just recently back having spent a month in Peru and all the buses go over 4200m-4700m regularly. Walking around in Bolivia is often at about 4500m. You get out of breath but you just need to take things a bit slower.

Obviously some people DO struggle more at 4-5 thousand metres than others.
Thanks for the advice. I’m trekking with a tour as well so their advice is pretty essential for me. Just hope I cope ok with the altitude! Gonna go do a load of shopping in Ambleside today haha
mine arrived today. looks like a good piece of kit, for the money.

look forward to giving it a try while out and about over the next few weekends.
