So we also went to the Musto outlet store on sunday, where things really were less than 1/2 price... the MPX gortex womens jacket and salopettes coming in at a bargain 200 squid .. down side is the Mrs now wants to come boating with me ! ;-) (I've had a slap for that !)

I've also purchased the MPX jacket and HPX salopettes so we really had a good spend up and now look like "harold and hilda"! but massivley reduced from the RRP price that was initially quoted

I've also got the Sealskinz Hat, Gloves and Socks (which I wore up Helvellyn), and all are very very good .. (and warm). My mate works in a retailers and he said they are excellent, but not very robust wrt rope burns etc ...

What do people wear on there feet ? ... wellies ?, or goretex boots or something else ?

The socks really worth it you reckon?

Ive got a pair of Gul Wellies I use on the boat at the minute so not sure if i would reap the benefits of them? Have ordered the Gloves on Sunday though and should be here tomorrow / Wednesday

the Sox are very very good .. I wore my fave boots up Helvelyn last year in the snow, and on the way back they go very "holey", and still finished with warm and dry feet, so well worth the expense ... !!!

Yes thats a nice walk up. 1st time we did it we went up striding edge in thick fog so we had to go back the week after just for the view, we have been up there many times since love the place

Helvellyn is my favourite of them all i must go back there soon
