    A couple of 70th anniversary retro Karrimor rucksacks £9.99.

    Not a fan of Sp0rts D!rect or of what Karrimor has become but these two retro rucksacks with the old logo on look interesting.

    No waist/hip belt and probably made in China from tissue paper held together with spaghetti stitching done by someone who doesn't care but do look pleasingly retro! :)

    Knife bargains has a closedown sale at the moment selling everything at cost price !!
    Due to personal reasons , the owner is folding the business.
    His wife was diagnosed with cancer and died a couple of months ago...

    Anything left over will be donated to his late wife's favourite charities.

    It will stop taking orders on the 31st of January.

    http://knifebargains.co.uk/index.html

    From pukkos to machetes , from blanks to scales , fold up grills and socks to axes and other Bushcraft items .

    Some real bargains there and I've always had great service from them.

    Just thought I'd share...

    10cm'ish non-stick camping cook pot. Sadly no lid and handle does not fold, but has a lip around the rim so fitting a wire bail handle is doable. Available in all good £shops

    Called in £land again and picked up a few LWWF Meatball's in tomato sauce meals. They also had Chilli con carne ones in.

    I've been thinking of some kevlar straps for my hammock suspension for awhile now and found this....

    http://www.mbfg.co.uk/clearance/25mm_fibreglass_tape.html

    not sure if this is suitable but for a £5.00 for 50m it's worth a punt, and if not suitable I'm sure I'll find other uses for it. [apparently it's Kevlar 49, if that means anything to anyone]

    mousey that stuff is just fibreglass woven roving,no good to you for what you want to use it for and no good for anything unless it's used with resin.
