Lucky Bs

No, not


I'm on about the Extremities® Lucky Bags that Terra Nova have on sale here.

I ordered a couple after reading about them on Grahame's blog - see here.

So, what did we receive?

Chris got these:

Winter Hacking Gloves (RRP £27.00)

 Boreas Windy Took Hat (RRP £29.00)

 Merino Took Hat (Est £25.00)

Super Neck Gaiter (RRP £21.00?)

 I got these:

Lightweight Mountain Mitts (RRP £80.00) - outers on the left, inners on the right

 Balaclava (RRP £22.00)


 Windy Took Hat (RRP £26.00)

and between the two of us we got five mini-karabiners and a bottle-opener:

Unless I've lost the ability to do basic addition, that lot comes to a total of £230.

Yes, I know that Extremities® kit can be had from discount outlets such as TKMaxx, but I've yet to see the Mountain Mitts there for less than £20.

I'd say that these Lucky Bags are worth getting. If you're considering getting one, act soon - they're going fast.

  Now, you'll have to pardon me but I have to get back to the fight for possession of that Merino Took!

Oh and if you're wondering what a Took is, this might help.

  1. Nice!

    I got a second one, Ladies Medium, too, and got a few nice items (including the winter hacking gloves) - as some of them are for presents, probably best not give the full list!

    They really are a bargain, though! I was so chuffed with the Multisport Pro gloves!

    Yeah, I do like the look of your Multisport Pro Gloves. I have something similar already from Outdoor Designs so I'm glad that I didn't receive more gloves, but I will be using the Mountain Mitts - either layer fits nicely over the OD gloves and so they'll be useful for those colder-than-average winter days up on the tops.

    The Windy Took Hat is superb.

    I'm now banned from trying to get hold of that Merino Took Hat 🙁
