    Zippo hand warmer

    TeeDee: Bit late response for you to buy but my mate has one and they last around 12 hours when full. I have tried the cheaper knock off's, they dont get as hot and only last a few hours.

    Shopping in London?

    I don't think it's officially legal there, but I think the word "tolerated" is a touch on the strong side in this instance. Just talking from personal experience that I always get a smile and a hello from others I see there and have never had a hint of a "what do you think you are doing" look or...

    Shopping in London?

    If you don't mind wild camping and going just north of London then Broxbourne Woods is a nice place. I normally go to the Bencroft car park and go in from there. You get a lot of dog walkers but they are used to wild campers in there and usually wish you well on your stay. The only time they...

    £300 plus knife ? ?

    If you want a "one size fits all" then the Varustelaka Skrama is worth looking at. It can't do delicate stuff as well as a knife, it can't chop as well as an Axe. Then again a knife can't chop wood, and you can't whittle with an axe. The Skrama is capable of doing everything. Using the Lord of...

    £300 plus knife ? ?

    I was on the hunt for a knife a year or so ago and was looking at the TBS Boar (£150,) as they are very nice looking knives and I had held one and been impressed by it. After some research and in particular a post ont his forum, I also found people who felt the knife to "too nice" to use in...

    Hammock Differences

    A few questions as I am trying to understand what's needed for hammock camping and what type / weight of kit I should expect to carry... If I have an under blanket rated to 10 degrees and I am out in 2 degrees, will a "good" sleeping bag rated in the minus temperatures compensate or will I...

    Hammock Differences

    I have never been a fan of hammocks as I normally sleep on my stomach but I recently tried out one of the EasyHammock hammocks and was quite impressed by it so I am now looking into getting a hammock. The EasyHammock / Henessey hammocks seem to be around £200 where the DD / Napsack hammocks are...
