    Ranger roll sleep system

    Several times i've been soo strapped that i've simply rolled into my basha and fell asleep. However you'll wake up wet with sweat, wont be kept that dry in the rain, but will be kept warmer. The old poncho liners aren't any warmer than a decent hoodie imo, definitely not suitable for use in...

    Loose Axe Head?

    I'd pay £20 plus postage to have someone re-handle it tbh. If your willing to pay a bit extra, wait a bit longer and find a competent woodworker they could likely carve a new handle down into the old ones shape and size.

    The steel crusader mug is bombproof.

    Looks like the old "warm" kit we got back in the early 90s. Quilted, stiff, badly fitting and cold to the touch. Forget that, get some proper modern warm kit. I reccomend primaloft.

    Decent field jacket

    I use one of these with the velcro cut off; If you mean a proper waterproof then either a paramo or keela belay jacket.

    Potassium Permanganate?

    It's ideal for any cheesy feet issues. Mix in a basin with warm water until you get a nice red colour and soak for 15 -20 mins. It'll turn your nails brown though but who cares. Keep it in a glass jar, and away from any other chemicals. Be very careful not to inhale it or get it in your eyes.

    Israeli trauma field dressings

    The date refers to how long the manufacturer guarantees the item will stay sterile for. The bandage itself will be fine. If you need to use one you'll be going to A&E anyway, and they'll clean and dress the wound properly.

    Kuksa advice

    Every single wooden kuksa i've ever owned has eventually cracked, even with oiling. I stick to metal or plastic now, saves a lot of messing around.

    Why plastic taste develops in my camelbacks?

    Walking about the sandpit, a bit of plastic taste from your water will be the last thing on your mind. I was more worried some bloke with a mobile or a pressure plate under the rocks myself. Plenty of the water that you get also had a nice bleachy tang to it so you didn't really taste the...

    Reviewing cooking setup.

    Your cooking kit should reflect what you intend to eat. If it's mostly just foods that need heating or boiling water added then i usually just bring a metal mug and a small pot (with lid) such as this below...

    Is it stil worth carrying a compass?

    Both are useful, and I carry both often on larger hikes. But if you plan to go anywhere remote, you would be stupid to not carry a proper map, compass and measure, and train yourself in their use.

    Scrim net scarf...or good old Shemagh??

    I had a green one many, many years ago. After several years of not washing it i'm sure it go up and walked away itself, probably has a cottage somewhere up in the Brecons now.

    Head torch recommendations. Red lamp priority.

    I like the petzl e-lite and have one that is several years old. Red light is far too overrated imo. It doesn't preserve night vision, is poor for actually seeing anything in the dark, and wont show up contour lines on a map at all in the pitch black.

    Factory New NATO Equipment?

    Folding sleeping mats aren't worth bothering with. Get yourself a 3/4 inflating mat. Sleep with your feet in your rucksack.

    Snugpak Elite 3 or Kestrel 6

    If you go for the new issue bag, make sure to get the large size. I don't fit a medium and i'm only 5 10.

    I washed mine a few days ago, that's about it.

    Gaiters and tall boots? Yes? No? Why?

    If you go anywhere with a load of snow, you'll want gaiters. Same if your working in anywhere boggy for any decent length of time.

    Dated dressings - would you use if needed?

    The date usually isn't to do with the bandage itself, its nearly always to do with the packaging and how long the manufacturer guarantees it'll stay sterile for.
