    Wherever our travels take us, we will be sure to let people know where we got and will get our equipment from! Thank you!

    If you want to keep people like me as readers, you'll need to put your dimensions in metric units. If you write for our cousins across the pound you need to adjust your weights to imperial.

    That is a good spot! But to change the units to one for readability or to add brackets after the units ?

    It would be a case of finding a unit for each that everyone can understand easily

    I am sure you have readers on both sides of the Atlantic so keeping both is not unreasonable. But if I may I suggest you keep some consistency between your choice of primary and secondary.

    Would Kilograms be universal ?
    And for dimensions would inches or centimetres be better ? As I deal with equipment that is both large and small, should I use inches for smaller and meterage for larger ?

    For fluids, litres for primary and oz for secondary ?

    I would advise SI for primary and imperial for secondary. So that would be kg and pounds, metres (or related multiples depending on need, i.e. km for distances and cm or mm for size of pack or diameter of poles) and miles to inches, litres and fl oz, etc.
    Of course feel free to have them the other way around, but please keep the same throughout your article if not throughout your blog. It just makes things easier to read.

    Will definitely edit the piece to have metric and imperial measurements better laid out, it is just something I never really considered when looking at the products' own measurements, I shall fix it asap

    I have updated all the prices, volumes, masses and lengths to include currencies and metric to imperial systems respectively! I hope this makes it more satisfactory and easier to read from both sides of the pond!

    According to your blog you met on ROF.

    According to my admin log Outdoor Stockroom didn't join until the 1st of July, the same date you wrote the blog. Now either there is some way of getting same-day delivery from Maine, USA to Eire, or you're being a bit economical with the truth.

    By the time I log on to ROF my daily reserves of patience and tolerance - never high at the best of times - are usually running on empty. I have been known to ban people for careless use of the apostrophe, or using an inappropriate emoticon.

    Anyway, here's the point. If you're going to sell on ROF you need credibility, and right now neither you or OS has any with me - so either you remedy that or you're both gone by tomorrow morning NZ time. You've got about 10 hours.

    You're going to ban us because of blatant coincidence ?

    I said that we bought supplies from them, I never said we had it yet.

    There's an invoice from myself to OS.

    So if people wanna make accusations about myself or OS, that's not a credibility fault on our part.
