    Water bladder size for use around camp?

    Many thanks guys. Food for thought. From the poll it seems as though the average is 4L. Still I think squidders and shaggystu have a point - options options options!

    Water bladder size for use around camp?

    Thinking of investing in a durable (thinking along the lines of MSR Dromedary or Ortlieb type) water bladder for use in camp. I was wondering what size to get though. For camp use (i.e. drinking, cooking, washing pots, washing body!) how much do people use per day (in a temperate...

    Karrimor Sabre 30 vs Sabre 35 vs Delta 35 vs Patrol 45

    I know this has been asked before but can't find the info anywhere - would the back length on the Sabre 45 be ok for someone 5ft 11inch tall (although I like to think I'm 6ft!?!)? I'd like to try one on for size but as I live overseas I doubt that will be possible.

    What knife and carry for an ambush predator?

    Its a young female lion. Photo below show adult at the front with rifle for scale. If flares aren't an option then maybe a taser? Might also fall under the firearms rule though. Whilst I carry a folding pocket knife (Byrd) out walking I suggest just letting the animal get on with the job...

    What knife and carry for an ambush predator?

    Personally .458 soft nose is the only way to go! Having said that as you aren't permitted to carry a firearm I'd suggest one of those pencil flares over a knife. The unusual sound/smoke/sight will have the best chance of turning a charge - if you know its coming! If it gets to you then...
