    is anyone watching the gadget show on c5?

    they are testing some outdoor gear..everything from 8.99 waterproofs to a rab expediditon suit, will probably end upin a rubbish report but it may be worth watching!

    Not a bad prize at the end but £1 a call!! It certainly had my 6 yr old reaching for the phone since it included a PSP. Good job we stopped him or how many calls could he have made. Scary thought.

    First time I saw the Gadget Show, I almost called, then decided to go online to answer the question.

    Where you got the phone number to call. I'm not a fan of these 'quizzes' where the punters pay the money for the 'prize'

    Saw the prog, really though, I thought it was a little misleading. Certainly the tent was a nice and not a bad rucksack. However, maybe I am old fashioned but I put map and compass first over GPS. The dow stuff was very good but for specialised altitude climbing etc and who would want to on the hill in dayglo colours? Ok, so I am being an old grouch and nit picking, yep, good programme but but not to be taken too seriously. Mind, if I won the competion it would have added another tent to my collection!!!

    I could have sworn the tent was a crux, I think it said it on the porch as well, I did laugh that the guy was too hot in the freezer! Bit obvious though, I mean a down suit and a -40 sleeping bag!
