Just ask in store, rather than via the web. You may have more luck.
Thanks very much :D
Yeah I think the one from the comment earlier is the old model, which has a smaller porch area and is a different colour etc. If you know anyone who does he Duke of Edinburgh they can get 10-15% off the price at Go Outdoors etc.
Arrrgh gutted i did n they said no...nice one for you tho x
If you don't ask, you don't get. I just got mine price-matched for £539. Well chuffed! :-)
i know im late to the party but the alpkit is better. i have teh alpkit brukit and its brilliant their customer service is also brilliant
I might have thought about trying this. I use an MSR XGK and get tired of having to apologise to everyone for how loud it is. :|
I'd pay for an alpkit anyday, reliable, great service, nice people, ..& they help the outdoor community
All true. At some point you place your trust in a particular brand. Alpkit are a growing brand and IMO are trying to build a reputation for quality, service etc. Compare to a company like berghaus which are well into their 'cash in' phase of declining quality and Prices, again IMO. Spend or save? I would recommend paying the extra on this one, but each to his own.
One could argue that the Alpkit is a knock off of the original Jetboil.... When something has been out for a while, other companies always do their own version of it. I have a Gelert Intensity stove, which is a knock off of the MSR Pocket Rocket, at only a fraction of the price. Works just as well.
