    Your opinion wanted!

    Very nice, although it's a bit dark I love the M05 camo pattern. That pocket looks plenty big and i'm a fan of elasticated cuffs, keeps the sleeves where they should be. Looks like a good bit of kit, what's it called? I'm looking for a good anorak. Been thinking of getting a a sso/sposn Gorka...

    Your opinion wanted!

    A map? I wish i had a large anorak chest pocket to put my map in instead of it wildly swinging off my neck in its map case or having it in the cargo pockets on my trousers. Slightly bothersome towards the end of a 17mile walk. In regard to first aid, a cotton scarf/bandana, a bit of sudocrem...

    Hat recommendations please

    If ya dont mind the look of boonie hats, theyre great winter hats before you go to bed as the brim reflects heat back on to your face and keep ya head warm, in the same way a lean to reflects the fire back at you. They work the opposite way around though if you have a good breeze in your face. I...

    Cold steel special forces shovel

    After using it for some time I've got to say It's become one of my favourite camp tools. I tend to pack it with me most of the time, even on longer walks (5+ miles) as I always find a use for it and tend to miss it if I don't bring it along. It generally sees more use as an improv hammer and for...

    Unsuccessful search for lightweight simple high leather boots, close to trail shoes flexibility

    Austrian army lightweight leather boots. I got two pairs for about 50 quid including postage last year. Had em over a year, wear both pairs everyday, one for work n "outdoors" use and the other for casual day to day wear. I dont wear any other footwear. (I just like boots) Both pairs are like...

    Tbs salamander cook kit

    I forgot to mention pot capacities. The cup is 750ml capacity with stamped volume graduations in (if i remember correctly) 100ml increments up to 500ml. The graduations are visible on the inside and outside of the cup. The bottle is 1l capacity. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Tbs salamander cook kit

    Not exactly, the cup and stove is about 500g so id say with the bottle and extras very slightly over 1kg but it doesnt feel quite that heavy at all. Once ive had a chance to put it in the dirt i'll get back to you. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Ecologically reasonable insulated Jacket

    If you live in Britain In my opinion a cotton jacket and woolly pully is best. A windproof, slightly water resistant, breathable top layer with all your insulation worn underneath in layers. Probably wool. Army surplus is usually pretty good, a lot of people tend to think camouflage but you can...
