Dave sent us an update of life with his Heiko jacket

Dave sent us through some pictures and a few words about his most recent adventures. 

 

Hi

Thought you might be interested in a couple of pics of your Heiko jacket. 

The first photo is looking towards Mount Teide, Tenerife, from Mount Guajara 2718m. 19th Dec 2017.

The second is helping Woodhead Mountain Rescue team on the final checkpoint during the "Grin 'n Bear It" fell race on the Langsett Moors.  29th Oct, 2017.

The jacket has been one of the best bits of gear I have ever bought. Great on the hill and in the bottom of your sac. Also an essential item for Tenerife, it can get cold at nearly 9000ft, and keeps the chill off in the bars at night.

Thanks for getting in touch Dave, Tenerife looks amazing! Also, excellent to hear you are getting on so well with your Heiko, enjoy your future adventures.
