My NEW MLD Ultralight bivy has finally landed.
|That is on a piece of A4 Paper|
|And in it's bag|
It is really mega light, and looks rather fine.
It has taken quite a few weeks to arrive, which I have no issue with, because it is fine kit.
What I do have an issue with, is the fact that despite several attempts at communication with Ron, I never ever had even the courtesey of a reply.
I am sure he is a really busy man, and he does produce rather good gear, but I am not overly anamoured with customer service.
Mind you, I have never had to send anything back, so I cannot give the definitive response here.
I do however, contrast that with Sean at Oookworks (that is another plug there), who is an absolute TOP BLOKE!
THIS BIT is for Alan

I got the XL so that I could easily fit a larger bag and also a full length sleeping mat inside.

I have NO idea what the hydrostatic head is but I think it might be 1500m.
I am willing for those with FAR more knowledge to supply that fact.

It takes about 6 to 12 weeks for delivery
I ordered this on 2nd Feb and it arrived today (16th March), which is just over the 6 weeks
