What Mountain Bike July 2011 - Andy McCandlish
WMB tests and reviews all the essential kit for adventure biking. The MytiMug and Numo are both awarded 4 out of 5 stars. The Hunka is awarded 3 out of 5 stars.
You can do just about everything with [the MytiMug] - cook in it, eat out of it and drink from it. Now that is space saving!Andy McCandlish
Another suberb value offering from Alpkit... We used [the Numo] down to 0°C to great effect.Andy McCandlish
For the money [the Hunka] really can't be beaten ... The small pack size and built-in stuff sack are a very welcome bonus.Andy McCandlish
The day had been a long one, tea of sorts had been eaten and the bike kind of cleaned. Jon was looking forward to a good night and with his legs still striped with mud, he crawled into his bag and cinched up the hood. As he closed his eyes and listened to the makeshift campsite retire for the evening he couldn't help but join in the giggles as the odd balloon pop echoed up into the night sky
