    SVEA stove

    I have got the 123R and the older 123. Great stoves. Real work horses. They do require pre-heating and they dont produce the same ammount of heat as a Optimus Polaris/Nova, for instance. That said, my 123 sees more action than my Nova. Couldn't be happier with it!

    Down bag for Scandi winter use, suggestions please

    Choosing a couple of blankets instead of a sleeping bag isn't really practical....and the reasons beeing fear of death(wt*?) is simply raging alarmism. Also, funny in a way. I'd look for bargain amongst the big brands or get a custom made from www.roberts.pl Greger

    Swedish day pack

    I think they were produced by the Swedish company Sacci (but I am not 100% sure on that). I think thet are quite easy to find still - http://cdn.rodastjarnan.com/vaskor-och-ryggsackar/uppdragssack-m90-svenska-forsvaret-jagarsack-29009

    Planning Can anybody recommend a Canoe travel company in Sweden?

    That would be Ranea river. Check out ranea.river at Instagram...not specifically canoe related. Just pics along the river (that starts outside Dundret, Gallivare) Greger

    Planning Can anybody recommend a Canoe travel company in Sweden?

    Give Oskar a call! He can arrange most canoe/kayak trips here up north. https://www.canoeadventure.nu/

    Sushi?

    Hmm...might I introduce Pickled Herring as well as Surstromming (fermented herring)....not quite sushi, but delish all the same :) Greger

    Sushi?

    My experiences is that the hard part is making a good sushi rice...getting it cooked just perfect and getting the sugar/vinegar mix just right....Sounds simple, but I haven't hit the sweet spot yet...The toppings are easy...anything really, according to a japanese shushi bar owner I know. I like...

    Sami pouch

    No. Just no. I can't say for absolutely certain that there aren't any made with some leather from the scrotum in all of Sapmi...my grandparents, at least, did not do it that way.

    Where will your spirit take you in 2019?

    I want revenge!! A friends bum knee thwarted my passing cross Sarek. This year though!! Thinking of doing a solo trip, but I am not sure I can make it. The physical ordeal - not a problem - but 10 days of not talking to anyone ...hmm

    I'd say beer. No heating required. Excellent taste. Rich in vitamin B

    Trouser recommendations - I'm fussy and tall

    FR uses their G1000 fabric as far as I know...but IIRC they have some waterproof kit as well. To each, his own, off course, but the stretch...not getting in my wardrobe again...

    Trouser recommendations - I'm fussy and tall

    Rugged like crazy....I've used them for years. The sudden recollection of when I left the Army (kept the pants) sends chills down my back...d*mn, I'm getting old...

    Trouser recommendations - I'm fussy and tall

    I got Haglofs and FR with strech panels. In my humblest opinion: they are crap. Avoid strech at all costs. Sure, they are comfy, but they failin the field. Currently, I use my old M/90 polycotton pants (even if I highly dislike camo). If I were to buy new pants, it would be the FR Barents Pro...
