    Just a quick one really. Does anyone have a design or ideas for ditty bags to carry flour, rice, and other powders? Obviously people like Nessmuk and soldiers through the ages carried flour etc and they would have used the available materials so what did they carry them in. I can sort of see...

    Tool Kit - What do I need in it?

    As part of changing how I think about what I carry and how I use it, I have some questions that hopefully people on the forum can answer. 1) I am going to start carrying a bow saw with 2 blades, one for fine work and one for green wood. If you carry a bow saw what length do you use? 2) I am...

    Ray Mears - Survival Handbook - Possibles

    Re-reading this book and was amazed by how dated this chapter was. Always really liked this idea of carrying stuff you need and not a kit that never seems to get used. What do you almost always carry? Think about it for a minute. I have just started cycling to work, so my work rucksac fell...
