I do like a divers watch and quite fancy one of the Marathon GSAR divers watches.
The new prices however are a bit steep!!
Anybody know where I'd be able to get a preloved one?
Had a look on ebay and the only ones available from the states with the corresponding outrageous customs fees!
I'm in the market for some new trousers and quite fancy the 5.11 Strykers
Only thing is the sizing. I've read that they come up on the large size.
I currently wear crag hopper Kiwis 34 waist regular length.
Any advice from anyone who has them would be welcome.
I've just (finally) picked up a Francis Barker M73 Compass and reckon It should live a nice pooch.
I quite like the 58/37 pattern ones that I have seen on e-bay. They do seem to go for good money though.
So...has anyone found a good pouch from Max-P, Blackhawk or 5.11 etc that fits and...
Quite fancy giving the telemark skiing thing a go.
Now I don't want to spend huge in case it's not for me.
So I've noticed that a local surplus store has a fair few nearly/new Alico ski march boots for not much money.
Problem is though, what size to get?
I'm an 8 in a scarpa, 8/8.5 in an...
I've had a GB SFA for ages and despite my best efforts in denial, I really should sharpen the thing.
The edge isn't totally wasted, it does however, need a wee bit of TLC.
The question is does anybody know of a decent vid of a how to sharpen using a GB puck like...
I got a Vapalux M320 in the recent group buy.:cool:
However there wasn't a meths can to prime the stove in the deal.
This is no problem, as I am happy to get one myself.
Now I have seen the "3 in 1" oil type cans on e-bay and I'm not to impressed tbh.
Any body know where I can get a...
Apologies in advance cos it's not at all bushy
Ok, so I tried something new from the local Indian the other day.
A Channa poori.
Fantastic stuff. A slightly sweet(and sourish?) sauce with a slightly course texture serves in a paratha flat bread.
Man, those chickpeas are totally...
I used to have a 2.5x2.5 Kathmandu Sil Nylon Tarp which was crazy lightweight and had a super small pack size.
Fantastic bit of kit:cool:
Only thing is I think I have lost it ( I can't find anyways):(
So the question is are they still trading? I seem to remember that the guy who...
We all know the Wilkinson Sword Type D and Dartmoor knifes.
However does anyone have any info. or pictures on the early pattern Wilky knives.
I'm sure I saw pictures on here or it might have been BB (I've asked there as well).
I have searched, but as yet no luck.
Might have been...
I quite fancy doing a RM style kit from a well known maker:rolleyes:
However, I've seen it stated recently that the slabs fitted/supplied might be a a bit on the thin side.
I've also read that on the AW versions the handles are that wee bit thicker.
So, can I ask some of you fortunate...
I'm making up a wee brew kit to keep in my edc bag.
I've seen loads of references to the sachets of whitener that you get in army rat packs.
Anyone know where to get them without buying the full ration pack.
I've thought about instant tea:yuck: but it could be in the bag for a while, so...
So I've just watched Ray's " The Real Heros of Telemark " again.
What I was wondering was, does anyone know the location of the disused huts near Aviemore that he visited?
Now I'm aware that the SOE occupied 3 shooting lodges in the area (Drumintoul Lodge, Glenmore Lodge and...
Just noticed that the Sabre 45 is avaliable in Khaki/Desert Tan.
I must say I quite like it.
If I didn't already have a one in OG........:rolleyes: :D
What do you think?
For me it looks like a(maybe...
OK, So I've just got a Maxp Jumbo with the Nalgene pocket.
Now I vaguely recall reading that the pocket will take the litre bottle with a Snowpeak/Vargo/Alpkit Ti Mug on the bottom of the bottle.
The question is will the pocket take the taller snowpeak 900 type mug?
I normally use a...
How toxic is horses hoof fungus?
Don't worry I don't want to eat the stuff.
Just maybe turn it into Ammadou.
How careful do I need to be?
What I'm thinking of is if I'm in the field and perhaps I don't have access to proper handwashing facilities.
Am I correct in...
I've seen mention of these for a wee while now and am considering one for my canoe safety/survival gear.
Has anyone here actually got or used them?
I have read that the Royal Marines, Army Air Corps and the RAF are now using them so I have no doubt they have been well tested.
They look very...
I'm almost at the point of ordering a SASS smock and have a couple of questions about the material.
1.What weight of ventile do they use? Is it L24 or one of the heavier versions.
If it's L24 is it heavy enough?
2.How does the fabric actually compare to gaberdine? That is, not in...
