    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.

    I think in this situation my only course of action would be to fill my pants and hope the smell put it off! :)

    What knife and carry for an ambush predator?

    Well spotted - lion tracks are generally longer than they are wide and exception is when they move across muddy ground (see photo below) - they tend to splay their toes out a bit to get better purchase producing a rounder track. Leopard tracks are round in shape - one of the best ways of...

    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...

    Unbeatentracks - no sign online?

    Is it just me or has the online shop unbeaten tracks dropped off the net? They used to sell Rogue clothing from SA as well as tents, cast iron pots etc etc? Can't for the life of me find them anymore ..... have they stopped trading? Shame if they have as they were great!

    Amazing footage of persistence hunt

    ...... sorry can't see Youtube where I am but I think this is the kudu persistence hunt form the "Life of Mammals" series ("food for thought" episode)? If so then I think it was filmed by the UK's very own Simon King of spring watch/autumn watch fame. According to his autobiography he...
