Own a Helly Hansen fibre pile jacket says workwear on it and is made in Poland. Held the rain like a sponge and before it rained I was cold with it on, wind seemed to go straight through.
Any people on here owned and wore one of the these in the 1980s when they were popular ...
For years I have used the crusader mk1 and nothing else. Thought I would try the mk2 anodised and have being using it the last couple of weeks but it leaves a bad taste to the water.
Anyone Else experienced this?
I rarely watch tv, can’t stand the programmes mostly put out but saw this and have been enjoying watching their way of life. Other Alaskan programmes look a bit of a con like Alaskan frontier, too set up and they live close to a town so it’s basically a farming show.
What does everyone else...
Out in the garden over the weekend practicing with the S1, love the 5 inch blade over the more commonly used by me 4 or 4 1/2 inch.
Just can’t get used to the handle length seems far to small and the width to thin. Does anyone else who owns an S1 have the same opinion on this knife.

Those that own this model can you cook a wayfarer boil in a bag meal in the brukit mug ?
I know you can put a pan on the top but really want to know if it can be done in its mug.
They usually take about 8 minutes to cook through. Fancy trying this instead of my usual Hexi cooker and mug.

Going to use these have a play using these knives again, just to see which one is the “best” Not used any of them in many years...
In the 1980’s most of us serving bought a lot of our own kit because the issue wasn’t as good e.g. norgie tops buffalo or softie coats, sas smocks berghaus rucksacks etc
