Hello

Can anyone recommend a good hat to take - i want to take something with more coverage than a baseball cap - any brands/type that i should look for?

Regards Glen

Also does anyone own either a Led Lenser David 15 Led torch, the David 19 or the V2 tactical torch and if so how do you find it works at night?

As an Aussie, have you considered an Akubra? We both took them and found them perfect, wide for shade, warm in cold winds, protection from rain, just extremely comfortable. We even got snowed on. I think they are a lifetime purchase and look better the more battered they become. We picked some wild Rosemary and put it in the headband, and later when we came across the eucalypts of Galicia towards the end, we added a leaf. of that too.
