    Loved the ultra fast setup trekk, that is awsome. I would like to get my hands on the same hardware you are demo'd. I like the fit. You have obviously done some research.

    By any chance to you have the rei part #'s for those rings and carabiners?

    This would certainly help the knot tie challenged folk like me.

    Thanks!

    REI is membership driven. They pay attention to membership feedback as to the quality of the items they sell. If an item starts getting a lot of negative comments it disappears. Go to rei.com to see their offerings. It's not mysterious. What is mysterious is the UK and Europe. Here one can get almost anything and shopping around for a reasonable price is easy. In the UK and Europe that doesn't seem to be the case.

    haha with respect, that last comment is garbage... in fact there is a street near my house in london with at least 5 rei equivilant shops on it, its actually nicknamed expedition road.... i can wander in and out of them and get the best price!

    the most similar thing we have by the sounds of it is called gooutdoors, however its not my favorite shop. we have simply loads of quality outdoor shops in the uk....

    Actually I'm not a fan of REI. It's more expensive than I like. What I was thinking of are all the online sellers and ebay sellers. It can be a little irritating though when you want to sell something and an online source decides to drastically cut the price. I don't know whether that happens in the UK or Europe. But it happens here, more now with the economy being depressed. It makes buying and selling a challenge as you can see by some of the items for sale on the Forum.

    These are not mine but I think they are the best all around videos of HH's. He really does a great job explaining all the details and I found them all to be very helpful.

    HHSS setup/instal

    I didn't see these three videos here yet and they probably should be. He goes into great detail, showing each knot and change he makes even how to instal and use the snake skins. They are very complete and show in great detail how to set up the HHSS with OC. Hope they help someone like they did me.
