Cheers Alex.......and the answer is... Carrefour! or Eroski (both supermarkets, the carrefour is probably the best bet.

failing that if you are in Alicante get yourself over to Vistahermosa, Villajoyosa (just outside of Alicante by 5 or 6 k near Media-market the computer retailer) and there is a large sports store that I cant remember the name of, that sells skis, tents, mountain bikes etc...

Happy to be of service.....

Martyn

good afternoon

Hi Martyn,

out of curiosity: are there any Decathlons in Spain? (they sell nice stuff there as well by the way).

There are plenty of Decathlon sport shops here in Spain.I have been to the one in Alicante.They mainly sell Quechua camping products.I think they are good products but i would really prefer a real top quality bag.Looks like its gonna be Ebay for this one.

I would think you will be lucky to get delivery before Christmas via ebay; the mail has the potential to get bunged up in these last few days - just mentioning it because I am waiting for an ebay bought item from the 1st Dec.

BTW, Quecha (not sure about the spelling) is the Decathlon own brand stuff, but they do tend to stock other manufacturers kit - maybe not everything in every branch?
