any tech gear needing to be ordered plase do as ASAP, this includes ascenders, aiders etc or anything else you need ICJ to pre-purchase
we are now working with Cilogear’s Japan distributor to make their packs available – easily the best packs on the market. there will be a discount but orders are need as soon as possible as they are handmade and Cilo is notorious for slow production.
note that pre-sending gear can take a while so try and get this sorted by mid-August. note that ICJ will be sending gear before then, which will include a lot of pre-purchased stuff.
