    For me I find that if I need a band-aid it’s because I caught a knuckle on something:)

    Survival Tins - Updates

    £300 plus knife ? ?

    I had one of those. Liked it but sold it recently. It just never made it into the rotation. My only issue with it is that with the micarta handles it’s a very heavy knife, for me, the balance was just not right. I do a lot of carving, spoons, and this would not have made a good working knife for...

    Does anyone have both osprey bottle and US issue?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to find a METAL bottle that is the same size and shape as the osprey? I have been using the osprey bottles and matching cup for a few years now and don't really want to part with them. But it would be nice to have a metal bottle that I could set near the fire in...
