The headtorches are great, lightweight and excellent value for money. The main light is very bright, but can be adjusted to conserve battery power. There is also a green and red LED at the front, for a variety of conditons and impromptu tent discos! The battery pack is at the back and also has a red light, great for night time cycling. The torch only takes alkaline batteries, however these last a good length of time (about a month of everyday useage).
The bivi bags have been very successful, allowing us to sleep under the stars whilst in the middle of the Gobi - shooting stars galore! Chris has the Hunka XL and Liz has the smaller Hunka.
The snapwires are folding, lightweight titanium cutlery - sporks and knifes. We use these everyday and they are strong, easy to clean and most importantly they passed the strawberries and ice-cream test (see photos below)! We like them a lot.
We also have some of their dry bags which are great for separating kit inside panniers bags. Lastly we have some small Karibiners which are ace - really useful for all sorts of things, and some thin cord that we use as a washing line, so thanks for those Alpkit!
