    Yea!
    I've chosen a pair of Targhees to see if I can got over my dislike of waterproof lined boots.
    Also sandals - very heavy - and walking shoes. all have a good, broad forefoot area which fits my feet. I also chose a rucsac. It zips up which I'm not a fan of and some of the material seems quite flimsy but I'll report back when these items have been used for real.

    Yes, the footwear and rucsac arrived a couple of days ago, waiting on the socks.

    The stuff looks strongly made - apart from the rucsac and I've not tried that so it is only an impression so far.

    It all arrived 3-4 days after being orderd. Even the postage was free.

    I got mine from the UK website and ordered my usual UK size, the fit seems OK so far - only used them round the house so far though.

    They have a size comparison chart on the website which seems pretty standard. UK 7.5 is 41 is US 8.5

    Where did you order yours from?

    Never thought of ordering from another country website.... I did find the UK website quite difficult with a worse search function the OMs own!

    Yes, a pair of winter boots - they offered the Targhees, a pair of walking shoes - several to choose from and sandals, again several to choose from.

    The bage were all messenger type bage apart from one rucsac so I got that.

    You'll be keen to get home soon, then...?

    Does this mean that it's finally save to re-enable our stats...?

    Obviously some folk haven't seen the new, sooperdooper 2111stuff about to be released. You should have waited before cashing in.

    I thought I'd better cash in before Keen changed their mind

    I know how you feel!

    I don't have much of a prize to choose from. My daughter 'needs' a new bag with a laptop sleeve for uni, and boots for her TA duties. My son simply told me he was having 'those'.

    They've allowed me to choose a pair for myself.

    How did you go about getting your socks, Nick? It says in the email they'll come seperately because of stock levels. Did you just pick the ones you wanted from the website?
