Ordered a pair of Rab trousers on Tuesday, delivered Friday. Perfect condition, excellent price, service superb. Have order from Facewest before and always had great service. Why would you want the hassle of going to the shops? Highly recommend.
I bought a few things from facewest including sealskinz extreme cold weather gloves. These are great, I don't know of any warmer gloves. I have an older version of these and the new ones have extra protection over the knuckles, double stitching in parts to make them last longer, and toggles at the wrist which you can thread your wrists through to stop you dropping them if you take them off. I also bought the raidlight bottle holder. I have never tried carrying water at the front of a rucksack before and while it's not as comfy as having it strapped to your back, it is a lot more convenient for filling it up. I would use it in long races or mountain marathons where you don't want the long process of removing the hydration system from your bag to fill it up. I also bought the travel lunch freeze dried chocolate mousse. I haven't tried this yet but it looks good and was more appealing to me than the other desserts.
So many items of clothing seem to be 38-40 or 40-42 and I sit right right in the middle so it's been great having the confidence to order 2 sizes for size as this is what Facewest recommend!! It didn't matter that they were sending it to Austria or that it was sale items! The service has been ace - items all arrived promptly and refunds for the returned stuff paid just as promptly! The points reward system together with sale prices got me an absolute bargain of a Rab microlight vest which is superbly warm and comfy!1 Well done Facewest - I've already recommended you to friends!!
I ordered mesh chalk balls as I've started a kettlebell course and these help alleviate sweaty hands. I got a phone call next apologising that the system hadn't updated that my order was out of stock. I was immediately offered a dearer option at no extra cost. I can honestly say not a lot of companies would take the time to ring a client personally and suggest an alternate let alone at no extra cost. Brilliant company, hope to use them again soon. Cheers Facewest.
i already bought the msr spatula which is very good and heat resistant .the strainer is made of the same material and roughly the same dimensions it has a small pack size as it folds in half (like the spatula) the weight is about 28grams. i know a spatula and a grater/ strainer is a luxury item that you will not be bringing this along with you all the time but when you do bring it you don't want to carrying extra weight were you don't need it this is were these items will fit in perfectly.I have tested the spatula in the frying pan of my trangia and it does not melt unlike other makes i could mention which is why i tried it out at home in the garden before i go hiking.the color is a bit drab black and grey but its the form and function that counts.they are both slim i mean millimeters or at least no more than a 1/2 centimeter when folded .As are all the MSR products very well thought out light functional well made and well designed
This is my third order from Facewest, and each one has been quick & effortless. The Smartwool socks are great quality and extremely comfortable to wear. I couldn't believe the amount of padding, support and comfort they provide to my feet - especially the underside in contact with floor/boots.
