Recently I have had to mourn the unexpected loss of an old friend – my Berghaus Pac-Lite waterproof jacket. I last saw it (that I can remember) in the car on the way home from finishing the Wessex Ridgeway in April 2010. Here it is at the summit of Meal Corranaich on 29th May 2003.
As well as serving as my main walking jacket (it’s been up 60 of my 61 Munros), I always take it on vacation as it squeezes down to a low bulk and can be taken anywhere. I noticed it had gone missing when packing for a Canadian holiday towards the end of May 2010. I tried phoning a few restaurants where I might have left it but to no avail.
I bought a new one (a straight replacement, except it’s in blue). I can’t post a picture yet as the weather has been great recently and I haven’t had a chance to wear it. Can’t complain about that!
