Both Sea to Summit product presentations are first rate.

Interesting that Mountain Hardwear have totally ripped off the TNF Dark Star/Snow Leopard bags. Still, the Dark Star is a good bag, so I can see why they did.

Is that a very small woman in the Montane stand or a huge 38L rucksack?

New arcteryx cierzo bag looks almost identical to decathalon's simond 20L 250g(ish) climbing pack at £13. Even opens the same way.

I did think watching all of these and the other UKC vids from the show that many of the reps have clearly not had any media training - while the Sea to Summit chap looked like he might have done. I guess filming all these interviews is a newish thing, but when you are on camera look at the interviewer! You don't look into the camera (or even worse, the person holding the camera) as you come across as a weird stalker type who the viewer is potentially going to find going through his or her dustbin in the wee small hours of the morning!

Anyway, love the Sea to Summit pop up pot and the look of that mat. Shame both are rather pricey. I'll be interested to see if the sides of the pop up pot are flame resistant enough for use with the more vigourous stoves out there!

Looking at the Blue Ice packs, is that also a new version (bent shaft) of the Bluebird axe?
