    Since the early days of my interest in these lamps I have wanted a Tilley “Pork Pie” and I was drawn to the early model with the flat cage ring. I also like a bargain and want the joy of the fettle. So when this popped up on FBMP a few days ago I snapped it up and only an hours drive from home into North Yorkshire this evening and I have my Pork Pie. From what I’ve read these came with a short and a long handle version of which I assume this is the longer handle as it spans almost the full height of the lamp. Impressed with the quality of this lamp. Picking it up for the first time I assumed it was full of fuel but no, it really is just that heavy. Looking forward to this fettle.

    They are a very solid and heavy lamp aren't they? Well built to last that's for sure enjoy your fettle.

    An hour's drive - you just doubled the "spend" in hydrocarbons before you light it :lol:
    But I would do the same...
    it looks very promising

    Even factoring in the diesel I reckon I still got it at a third/half eBay prices! It was a nice drive too so win win!
