/ Wanted: Organic big pads - Sheffield
Looking to buy 2 Organic 'Big Pads' for a trip to Rocklands this August - they seem to have sold out everywhere in the UK recently.
Alternatively, if anyone would be willing to loan them to us for a couple of months we'd be willing to pay a decent chunk of money!
Thanks in advance
Or other large pads with decent foam!
There was a nice green one at the Bowderstone, I think it was free to a good home or something like that
If the Bowderstone stockpile has run dry, Organic should be able to send you some directly for not much more than usual UK prices. Maybe a bit slow for an August trip though.
Assumed this must be a UKC in joke so did a forum search... Brilliant thread!
Sadly I don't have any pads to offer, but it'd be worth checking out the Moon Saturn. It's in/around the same size, a little bit bigger, and - perhaps most important of all - it's actually in stock and available.
The other option would be the Alpkit Project, but that too is out of stock, and it really is massive - so much so that you'd likely need a van to cart it around on the other side.
Here's the dimensions as a useful reference point:
Big Pad: 116 x 72 x 28
Saturn: 120 x 78 x 38
Project: 127 x 80 x 30 cm
Hope that's of help, and that you find something!
