Since October she'd looked high and low for my trusty Petzl e+LITE...


Today she found it.

In her handbag.

The same handbag that she carries every day.

She still insists that she'd had a thorough look in there.

'Tis a place of mystery and lost souls, that handbag.

I suspect that Shergar and Lord Lucan may be somewhere in there.

Spot the difference

My trusty Petzl e+LITE (refurbished back in October 2010) has been AWOL since we returned from our most-recent wildie back in October 2011. We've looked everywhere for it but it refuses to be found, so I was charged with sourcing a replacement. The best deal that I could find was on Amazon.

Yesterday the postie delivered the new one. The lamp-unit, head-band and revised cord-grip (the one with the integral whistle) are the same as the one that's been lost but the pod's had a minor makeover... small changes, all worthwhile and simple to do by modding the mould-tooling.

So far I've spotted the SOS/OK pictograms, the improved grip-lugs on the lid (gloved hands get much better purchase on these) and the drain-hole's gone (so the thing doesn't take on water when immersed). Can you see any other differences?

A few days ago I emailed Lyon Equipment Ltd. After Sales to find out about getting a replacement rubbery band for the red plastic pod for my Petzl e+LITE - my band is showing its age and has many deep cracks in it, it would probably have broken during the next outing.

Yesterday the postie delivered a packet containing not just a replacement rubbery band but also a new pod and a new headband complete with the revised cord-grip (the one with the integral whistle). All FOC despite my offer to pay.

Joe Faulkner, you're a star, thank you!
