    Midge Jacket Recommendation Please

    A 2 night fishing trip on Loch Awe coming up. A particularly bothersome and overwhelming clan of wee beasties regularly make us very uncomfortable. Any recommendations for a good midge-proof jacket? head veil works well, but sometimes it is just not enough when I don't want to be confined to...

    The 'Gas Stove Freezing Up' thread (http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=138229 ) prompted me to ask about using propane or propane\butane mix in the following types of stove. I am toying with the idea of refilling used canisters like the one shown in the first image, I would like...

    Wood Gas Stove Question

    Having just received a wood gas stove today and not having used one before, I have read a comment saying that the stove should be filled with wood fuel from the ground up without the fuel tray being installed. The comment also said that the fuel tray was to be used for solid fuel (such as hexi...

    Best Insulation Order for sleeping warm

    Bit of a long read, I tried to keep it short and simple, best I could do, :sad6: I have been thinking about the best way to form layers for the warmest sleep. I do have a preference for the inflatable air bed to be inside the bivy bag (as I wont roll off it so easily), but that is...

    Wild Camping Scotland By Motorbike

    I'm looking for wild camping sites where I can keep the motorcycle very close by my tent pitch (for ease of unloading\loading and security). I know of and can find many places for car camping, rough tracks and security not being much of a problem. With the motorbike, rough and gravel tracks...

    Go-Outdoors - Customer Service

    I'm not sure if I am allowed to make a post re customer services issues here, but in this case I thought it was a case of "credit where credit is due" (moderator please move if in wrong section). I had a bit of a time consuming (and at personal cost to me) disappointment regarding an...

    Sleeping bag cover - protector

    I would like a cover for a top quilt, it does not have to be totally waterproof like a proper bivi bag. Just needs to be able to keep condensation drips or water contact with tent outer layer from seeping through and causing wet spots. Preferably with a full opening zip, or at least half...

    Bilash Rice

    I tried the Bilash rice from Aldi, 49p at checkout. The Pilau version is rather good. Pack instructions say add 45ml of water, I found that adding an extra 10 ml was better, but experiment to taste. After the initial water is boiled it is ready after a 2-3 minute simmer, but you do have to...

    Not looking for over-trousers, I have those but being very lightweight they do not offer much in the way of abrasion resistance. Totally waterproof at and just above and below the knee area when kneeling on wet ground, like you do when packing up gear and constant bending or on your haunches...
