    I have managed to get another Kayen CL8 ...

    It has the usual Kayen differences to the Tilley FL6 like the carry handle, no rivets on the hood, longer holes in the reflector and different shape around the edge, small pump and wing nuts to hold the top to the fount.

    It also has a couple of decals.

    The interesting thing about this one is the added extra.

    Yes, it looks like Kopsen ripped off the standard Tilley pressure tit (as well as the rest of the FL6!). And what a good job they've made of it too, - it's knackered, just like most of the originals are over here... :roll: ;) :lol:
