    WD40 to waterproof boots?

    Anyone ever used WD40 to waterproof boots? Looking up the ingredients it's pretty much just mineral oil. Some magical mixture of baby oil, vaseline and paraffin wax. Considering trying it but ive just spent FOREVER cleaning pine tar and beeswax off my hands from doing my boots earlier. Sent...

    Gaiters and tall boots? Yes? No? Why?

    So, i'm just wondering if there would be any benefit of wearing gaiters with tall boots? Why do a lot of militaries still issue gaiters when they're a pain to wear with most military style boots? Would you wear them with tall boots? Considering most boots are of leather construction, why...

    Choosing a saw

    I've been into camping and bushcraft for a few years now and i've mostly made do without any form of saw for wood processing. Other than occasionally taking a bow saw. I have seen how useful they can be for getting cleaner cuts, processing firewood and general bushcrafty jobs and projects. I...
