Well, just a few days after my previous post I received an email from Amazon advising that they are unable to supply the Vaude Power Lizard UL I ordered and it has been ‘discontinued’! This smacks of Vaude being unhappy with Amazon selling it at £256 (against an RRP of £350) and refusing to supply them, even though Amazon upped the price last week to £296!
I can probably get hold of a VPL for £300 but it doesn’t look such good value at that price against a Laser Comp (available for around £220 ) and the Scarp 1 (circa £230 depending on exchange rate, VAT and handling charges). The up-shot is I’m back to square one! Bugger!
