    " Did You Know ? "

    Did you know Cowboys were seen as cool and were romanticised/idolised (can't think of the correct word but you get the point) back then as they are today. Everybody wanted to be a cowboy. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Embroidered Patches

    Varusteleka did a bushcraft and a social distancing one. I got them both theyre great. Might be worth having a look on their website. To attach i cut the velcro backing off and hand stitched them on Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Outdoor gear. Military Surplus clothing and clones of Army issue coats and the like.

    I've got a czech parka. Actually really good coats. I'd definitely replace the zip though. Ruined mine by waxing the fabric, it just doesn't breathe well enough for me. Very warm though! Brilliantly thought out, the stand up collar and hood combo along with the waist belt make it super cozy. The...

    A Tour of Varusteleka: Outdoor and Military Specialists

    It does seem like that to me. A lot of old surplus is drying up but there doesnt seem to be any newer arrivals. They are doing very well for themselves and I think they are less interested in the surplus now as they push their own brand kit out there but then again, I see the stocks dry up and...

    Old West Firearm question

    I don't know about the west but you can bet its a bit all over the place. I do know ammo used in the first and even the second world wars was very sub par compared to modern day ammunition. The 9mm parabellum for example that the germans used in their pistols and mp40s. Im sure ive seen a lot of...

    Security Rubber Boots ?

    I nicked some of those dunlop actifort wellies from work. Alright for just mooching about in. Took some superglue to a split in them, its held well and theyre cheap to buy new anyway, so good for getting beat up. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Factory New NATO Equipment?

    I have a bw folding sleeping mat. Pretty sound for year round use here in the UK. Ive had cold nights in warm weather and ive had hot nights in cold weather... It's pretty much down to your setup tbh. Never understood folding it in half, it's better in my opinion to have all of your body...

    Boot resoling

    Looking to get two pairs of Austrian army combat boots resoled. One pair the heels run out of rubber, the other pairs just old and slippery will be going the same way. As you can see both pairs of boots are in perfectly good nick, other than needing a good clean and a chamois. (Dirty camera...
