    Primus Litech Frying Pan

    Does anyone use the Primus Litech Frying Pan on a small stove, such as the MSR Pocket Rocket? I am tempted to buy one, but from my experience with other (titanium) pots, they tend to have a hot spot in the centre, leading to burnt on food. Is the Litech pan sufficiently thick to spread the...

    Anyone bought Lundhags Scouts recently?

    I'm thinking about getting a pair of Lundhags Scouts soon (probably from Tamarack), and was wondering....... Do they come with felt insoles and boot wax? Some old posts I've read seem to suggest that they do, but that may be due to retailer goodwill, rather than Lundhag standard issue...
