    Hi all
    As every now and again some of us post up when bargains are to be had, I thought why not start a thread that can be added to as and when anyone sees a real bushy bargain. Obviously not just your 5% offs and that kind of thing but just those occasions when a serious discount has been made.
    I'll get it started with Craghopper kiwi winter lined trousers for £15 here http://www.craghoppers.com/exclusive-offers/mens/kiwi-winter-lined-trousers.html

    TK Maxx quite often have merino base layers by the Aussie brand XTM. The long sleeve zip neck tops were only about £30.

    I will add this to the thread then as I think this is a terrific price. I bought one of these second hand for more than this a couple of years ago!

    A Mora Buschraft Triflex knife for £11.95 from Moonraker knives. It is the weekly deal on the website

    I think I'm going to regret starting this. I can see it costing me money. :)

    Does it have to be bushcraft related or anything useful out and about?

    If the latter, then the Polish shop in New Bridge Street, Truro is offering a free slice of their cooked meat with every roll...Result, Dad got his packed lunch for the trip home for 50p...

    (And its good quality bread and meat too.)

    Easter weekend has seen the return of the cheap camping gear to the shelves of £ stores here in Wales.
    Poundland have the fishing gear back as well and are doing a pack of sixty assorted fish hooks for a quid.

    There's also this to watch out for in the woods..

    Hi

    A trip to the local charity shop rendered two trespass
    sleeping bags for £3.99 each.
    [​IMG]

    Nothing fancy but they will go inside another sleeping bag to keep the kids toasty.
    Had a fight who gets the camo one,girls eh!

    Brake drum from a bedford van from a fitter at work and a dumped 12kg butane cylinder on the school run (brother in law is going to turn it into a wood burner)! Free is a good bargain as far as im concerned!

    I picked up one of the festival kits from B&M today. Here's a quick sneek preview for anyone interested.

    [​IMG]

    Cheap nasty canvas bag but it will serve its purpose. It has a clear plastic sleeve on the front which you could put sauce sachets etc in.

    [​IMG]

    What you get in the kit ... 2 mess tins, cutlery set, firelighters and a hexi styled burner frame.

    Great bit of kit for the money!
