    Ventile Jacket

    Ok lads - its been bagged and I'll be posting it out in the next couple of days, but thanks for all the interest. I'll be having a bit of a clearout over the next few weeks, and some stuff will be going for collection/postage, and some for sale.

    Ventile Jacket

    I don't know if this is the right bit to post this on - if not, I apologise - its been a couple of years since I was on this forum and the new look has confused me! I have a Survival Aids Arctic Ranger Ventile jacket if anyone would like it. I'm not selling it, its free to anyone who collects or...

    Blacks Icelandic sleeping bag

    I donated my old Blacks Icelandic a couple of years ago (the bit where stuff is sold) at the Wilderness gathering, together with my old Camp Trails Astral Cruiser pack frame and sac. I had it from school and it had been to North Norway, Canada, and all over Wales and the Lake District. I hadn't...

    Anyone made/makes Bahco Laplander leather sheaths?

    Ben Orford made mine about 9 years ago. Still excellent.

    pemmican

    I haven't had pemmican for years. I used to love it (along with the dried lifeboat ration packs you used to be able to pick up in the old YHA store in John Adam Street), but the calorie content was pretty high! Let us know how you like it Sam.

    light meters

    They are independent of the camera. You enter your ISO, take the reading (incident, reflected or spot) and read off the Shutter speed/aperture settings and transfer them to your camera. Robert is then your mother's brother:)

    Victorinox Mauser Knife

    Well, the insurers are sending me £124 for the Mauser and Trekker, which I think is very fair. I'll hold off buying a replacement for a while though. Thanks for all the help and guidance you've all given me, I do appreciate it. Annoying as the burglary was, it could have been a lot worse; they...

    Victorinox Mauser Knife

    I hate Ryanair - after one experience with them, I'd rather walk than use them again.

    Victorinox Mauser Knife

    Thanks lads - I appreciate the help. It was a bit of a sickener Sam to be sure, but as I said, not very much was taken and they didn't do any damage (other than to the back door handle and lock, and that has been beefed up!)

    Victorinox Mauser Knife

    Can anyone help me with a question? I came home from a holiday in Germany on Friday night, to find that we had been burgled. Luckily, not too much was taken, but among the things that were nicked was my Victorinox Mauser Officers knife. I bought this new many years ago because I liked the look...

    camera on a budget

    A camera is a fairly personal bit of kit -what suits my hand may not suit yours. Its always worth while having a look at camera shops (if there are any in your vicinity) to see what they have in the second-hand line. A lot of people trade in for the latest model, and second-hand digitals don't...
