    Good to see raidlight sorting the pole issue. I used poles on some cwu days and, as the hills/mountains aren’t huge, you need to use poles / pack poles / use them again / pack them etc. A really simple (and on the front!) pole attachment is vital.

      Thanks Paul, it’s a really useful design isn’t it, really like it. Are you tempted to give it another crack? Or Dragon’s Back 2019?
