    £50 was a steal, however it's a Vapalux (the new version Willis & Bates/Bialladin), not a Tilley :razz:
  5. Bog off. Its shiny, and I wanted it.

  6. I've got one of these, they're bloody great for camping.

    If you ever need any spares though, these are the people to contact and they can get hold of out of stock items and specialist spares for just about any model:

  7. True B/Spider though you can get "brand new old stock" vaporizers and mantles from Kibworth DIY (though they are mainly for Tilley). Vapalux/Bialladin/Willis & Bates are excellent, I have some going back to the 1920's, though those are mainly table lamps. They are ideal for winter if you live in the sticks giving bright light and 1 kilowatt of heat.
    IMHO Vapalux/Willis & Bates Bialladin/Bialladin are superior to Tilley.
