Gear Monster


Not even the plumeting dogs that tried to wipe off the address label prevented these from arriving this morning.

Sadly, at present a helmet is needed in order to test them.  Hopefully the weekend weather will be better.

RIP (on an Italian mountainside) Leki Classic 'broom handles'.

Yeah for Pacerpoles!

Have you seen the forecast for the weekend? Very wet indeed on Saturday and Monday. Ho hum...

I see that you have a Pacer Pole camera mount in the picture,I keep meaning to get one for my Pacer Poles.Can you please let us know your thoughts of it in use?

Phreerunner said...

Yes, I'll try it this weekend, I hope, and let you know.

Ron Bloomquist said...

I like my Pacer Poles.

What do you need a helmet for?

I didn't get the camera attachment. I will be interested in your observations on its use.

Phreerunner said...

The helmet was needed for protection....
It was 'raining cats and dogs', as the saying goes.
I'll report back on the camera attachment.

In keeping with our twin orange Crocs, I've ordered some Pacer Poles and a camera mount, too. They're being sent for me to pick up during our stay in Oxford. On the Bob and Rose front, I'm going to have them send me either a Travel Tap or an Aquaguard in-line filter. I can't quite decide which.

Fun to go on a little binge once in a while, isn't it?

Phreerunner said...

Have a great time in Oxford, Mark.
The Pacerpoles, and camera mount, are excellent, and I'm sure that whichever water filter you choose, it'll be fine.
Yes, the occasional gear binge is quite fun!

Fantastic Poles being using mine for 4 years now, never leave home without them.
