    I donated my daily use Hultafors knife to a friend recently, so decided to replace one with three. Isn't that how it goes ?

    I'm guilty of that approach too, why buy one when you can have a couple of spares. Of course I can't afford that approach for everything. :(

    I brought a chinese clone of a Luminox style tactical watch about three years ago. Its made in metal (i think Luminox are usually polymer?) and uses the Tritium vials so its great at night. Been extremely impressed with it, looks as good as new, and had rather a lot of abuse. I believe i purchased from China via ebay originally, but this is the model:

    It would be good to know how you have got one with the Sasta. There are hardly any sane reviews of it. In fact, there are none.

    Even putting the low price aside, that Czech parka is good, I hear.

    The Parka is really very good indeed. I wore it for much of the winter and early spring with the fleece liner, removed that and left the fleece neck section for late spring, and still in use now when the weather looks like it might rain and I'm not going somewhere where coats are particularly cared for! It is a bulky thing though, so packing it is a bit of a pain - didn't even bother when camping in the autumn and spring, just left loose or wore it rather than attempt to stuff it into my pack. I do wish the pockets were more capacious and could be more positively sealed with zippers. I'm sure nothing would fall out once buttoned up, but I prefer the entire pocket mouth to be sealed off. No pockets on the inside either, IIRC.

    The Sasta I've worn only a handful of times as I've only taken it with me when the weather has been fair but with rain possible. It is a strangely rigid jacket, but I imagine that would change with more wear. I'll be using it more in the summer when out and about on walks and camping etc. as I do really need to use it (I just had a week away in exactly the right sort of weather for it, and left it behind...).
