/ WINNER: Win a MSR Reactor Stove and Therm-a-Rest Mattress
The winner was Jonathan Fuller. In September Jonathan is off to attempt Himlung Himal (7126m), which is near the Nepal-Tibet border in the central region of Nepal. It has been climbed before, but never by a British team.
Jonathan wins a a MSR Reactor Stove System, a Reactor 2.5L pot, a MSR Universal Canister Stand, and a Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite mattress which he will be taking with him to Nepal, then reporting back to us on how the gear performed.
Thank you to everyone who entered.
In this competition the prizes are a MSR Reactor Stove System, a Reactor 2.5L pot, a MSR Universal Canister Stand, and a Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite mattress (total value: £337.98).

What's the score if you've never owned or used any comparable equipment. I'd happily review it by all of the other criteria mentioned but I wouldn't lie about it in comparison. Can I still enter?
Awesome, great kit!!!
I'd hope by the nature of the comp, more a technical competition than just a giveaway, that those who enter would feel that they are qualified to review this equipment. Hence that they would have some experience using this kind of kit, a lightweight mattress and a high powered stove, in a mountain setting. Hence the third question and the criteria for the review we are expecting off the winner.
That's fair enough. I am just part way through purchasing similar items to make a full kit list, so maybe next time I'll be in a position to join the hopefuls.
Good luck to those who enter.
