And I’m after a better head torch. Something like a scurion or something similar.

Hi Steve,

Assume you are after 2nd hand kit on the cheap.

Fine for an oversuit, or light if you can find one in decent condition, but I really wouldn't recommend buying 2nd hand SRT kit, more specifically, the fabric items of an SRT kit.

Yes, it's expensive new, but not compared to a Scurion. You're going to trust it with your life, so you really want to know its full history. Once you ballance the cost over the lifetime, it's pretty cheap anyway. The usual caving shops all do mail order, if you aren't visiting a region with a shop (static or mobile!).
The distance between stupidity and genius is measured only by success.

Contact Roy Fellows he will do you a decent lamp and won't charge you a fortune like Scurion
