    Default Aldi's finest back in stock on Thursday 12th

    I've got to say that since I got a pair, I'm a HUGE fan of the bib and brace and this one looks superb value. Plus the LED hats - got one, and it's brilliant.

    Yes - the hats are great value for a fiver. I wish they got an angler to help with the designs of these items though because they could be a lot better for a few pennies more. The hat has ear and neck flaps which can fold down - nice and windproof but if you use them the neck flap forces the peak down to impede visibility. Then there's the light - all too easy to switch it on by accident and drain the battery... Making the damn thing water resistant would help too! But for a fiver...
    So many cormorants.... so few recipes.

    Can you replace the battery in the hat ?....i've been told that once the battery runs out you can't replace it and just have the hat left, as a hat.

    Yes. They take two watch batteries. Can't remember the model number, but you get a dozen from the poundshop on a card. Or you can go into a jewelers and pay two quid each for them

    Right, thanks for that. I'm surprised they use those type of batteries, don't they run down fast ?

    It only has five LEDs so the power drain is quite low. I get a full winter's dog walking out of mine, 1/2 hour per night, and have had it three years now.

    Blimey, i'm amazed they last so long. If I get chance to pop into Aldi and they have any left I might just get one . I suppose it would be a handy back up id the head torch packed up.

    You might dispense with the head torch altogether. I have!
