Perhaps we could approach Gecko and enquire about a special offer for their headset?

They've sold a shedload of helmets over the past 24 hours to RIBnet members, plus a few bags, they might be up for offering (say) a 25% discount for the comms unit to anyone that purchased a helmet?

Hi .. they dont produce or manufacture the Comms sets.
They dont produce or manufacture the bags either so 10% was a big discount to offer on a small mark up for them.

I got an email of Shona with a price of 23 posted for the padded bag.

The price for the padded bag which you posted on here was 12.50 + 20% VAT = 15 - 10% discount = 13.50.. which means they are charging 9.50 for postage

I'll not bother
