What do you know. According to OM's news pages someone's importing the Banana Guard into the UK. I'm very disappoinrted as I'd seen these things in Vancouver after my PCT hike and was hoping to leave tgo and make my millions by importing them and flogging them myself!
Bought a couple while I was there and presented a big pink one to my mate Robert in Giggleswick who initially asked where the batteries went (calm down ladies!).
I've used mine to bring lunch to the tgo office for the last few weeks (can't afford more than a 'nana on these wages) and gotta say it's simple and it works (and it's light weight, just in case you were wondering).
I reckon it's make a grand stocking filler (with or without batteries).
