Outdoors stuff
Wednesday 7th July 2021
Received a parcel of lightweight outdoors stuff today, ordered in preparation for summer walking expeditions. This included a new lighter weight / higher capacity backpack, an ultralight weight sleeping quilt (alternative to a conventional sleeping bag) and an ultra lightweight / compact insulated jacket filled with "Aerogel" - the lightest solid substance known to man, apparently.

My new insulated jacket, rather different from the usual tweed, but to my surprise I found this extremely comfortable to wear and ended up wearing it round the house for much of today.
