    Sleeping bag - any good? Cotswold Sky 350PS

    This is a bit like closing the door after the horse has bolted i.e. I have already bought this bag (bit of an impulse buy) and now I'm asking if it's any good! The bag is a Ayacucho Sky 350 PS from Cotswold. Should have been £45 but when in Norwich their store had them marked up as £40, although...

    Single click/ double click

    On every other web site I go on if I want to go back a page I single click the "back to" button or use the backspace key on the keyboard. A couple of weeks ago I noticed when using this forum I now have to double click the aforementioned buttons whilst other webpages still only require 1 click...

    Gibbo’s version of Sudbury to the Sea

    Blogged this on SoTP recently but since it's a bit bushcrafty I'd thought I'd post it here too. I’d decided, like many I suppose, to take the three days off between the bank holidays and wanted to get an overnighter in so decided for logistical reasons i.e. my wife could drop me off and...

    I'm always looking to start a fire!!

    I've recently been teaching my kids to use a fire steel and make their own fires in our little hobo stove. They're getting quite good now and realise they have to start small then pile on larger stuff once it gets going. We collected birch bark the other day but we normally use cotton wool since...

    My frist tarp and hammock blog

    Not sure if this is the right section but I'm sure someone will move it if not.... After getting my hammock from the DD GB (thanks Sandbag) I felt it was time to give it a go so me and my eldest filled the rucksack with tarp and hammock and set out on our bikes to find a suitable place near...

    Web-Tex Warrior Compact Stove vs MSR Pocket Rocket

    Hi - I've recently bought an MSR Pocket Rocket gas stove (pre-loved) from eBay for a reasonable price but following a link on here to Lakeland Bushcraft came across Web-Tex Warrior stove. The two look almost identical but the Web-Tex one being about half the price so was wondering if anyone...

    I'm gutted - I've just broken my firesteel

    I'm really gutted, I've just dropped and broken my firsteel:(. It's not like it's an old one that I was attached too, got it when Attleborough were running their business down late last year, but I had made a handle out of oak and was enjoying using it over the last few weekends with my kids...

    My Christmas present finished - Mora Lapplander 95

    First posted on British Blades Forum... Just finished my knife that I got as a Christmas present. It's a Mora Lapplander 95 in stainless. The handle material is walnut - not a very interesting grain pattern unfortunately. The pins are made from offcuts of tungem tubing (an expensive...

    DD Hammocks Group Buy

    Saw this reply from sandbag47 on a thread about a prospective group buy from DD Hammocks. I was going to buy a Travel Hammock which as of yesterday is out of stock so I thought I'd wait until the group buy comes along. However, and this question I guess is really pointed at sandbag47, is a group...

    Seyntex bivi - instructions on how to use it.

    Has anyone used a Seyntex bivi bag before? I could really do with some instruction on how to set the hood up. How are the flaps used? Also on the end of the hood there are tapes both on the inside and the outside, what is their purpose? Excuse my ignorance I'm making the transition between tents...

    Bivvi bag and tarp advice wanted

    Perhaps at the risk of repeating past posts... I'm looking for some recommendations for suppliers of bivvi bags and tarps. I canoe-camp so prefer things to be on the lighter side which is why I'm looking at this combo assuming it to be less than a tent. Probably be mostly summer use. I've...
