    Duty FREE Biodeisel

    With Landrover DI diesels you must have a twin tank setup I believe as Direct Injection engines won't run veg while cold. Making biofuel is a real hassle and not as simple as most people might think. Twin tank kits are only about £450 and then you can happily run neat veg oil year round. Which...

    Greenheat backpack stove

    Hmm.. I use the Green slime sachets a lot in my Crusader cooker. I found that by insulating the bottom of the cooker with folded layers of foil, and adding the empty wrapper to the slime, you get a better flame. The best thing is one of Warthog's lids on the mug and you can actually boil water...

    Anyone tried Tasmanian Tiger Swift (24L)?

    Sorry for late reply... Got mine from Germany through http://www.asmc.de/en/Backpacks-Duffles/Backpacks-up-to-35L/Rucksack-TT-Swift-flecktarn-p.html?XTCsid=ac6c71977a2d4e9b05338d2412d145d8 Looking at that, £35 from the UK is a very good price. Yes, I'm certain all your stuff will fit.

    Anyone tried Tasmanian Tiger Swift (24L)?

    Yes. I have it in Flektarn and I love it! It's a great little ruck and solidly made. It has a built in whistle in the sternum strap buckle too.The mobile phone pouch also neatly carries the larger PMR radios if you use them.

    Tasmanian Tiger Pathfinder?

    I have some smaller TT kit and it is good in my opinion. I have one of their flektarn 30 litre packs and it is excellent with some good features.

    Vulcan or Sabre

    Yes, I believe www.asmc.de do some cheap copies in various colours/patterns. No idea on the quality though, but it all depends on what you use them for and how you look after them in my experiences with cheap equipment.

    reviews on mosquito hammocks?

    That's because he has lived there these past few years!!:cool: I never had the supplied tarp. I always used a 3mx3m tarp. I have a Tatonka and a DPM tarp from USMC which is lighter yet stronger. 3mx3m can be used equally well in diamond formation or conventional square formation. Both ways work...

    Vulcan or Sabre

    Yes. My mate uses a Vulcan exclusively for years and I have used it too to compare to my S 75. The Vulcan has magical abilities to just make weight disappear. Maybe the Sabre would if it was long enough for my back. My next trick will involve a Sabre 80-130. I only need an extra couple of...

    reviews on mosquito hammocks?

    Tom is a great bloke and the hammocks are fantastic.. Here's a review I posted on my forum: A couple of years ago me and Giz wanted a good hammock each so after much research we settled on a Jungle Hammock from www.MOSQUITOHAMMOCK.com and it proved a very good choice. We have tested them in the...

    Abbes Postmortem

    Sorry it didn't work out for you Abbe, but glad you gave it a go. At least you won't be sitting in your chair at 70 years old wondering "What if?" like so many people will. You followed your dreams and realised they were just that- dreams. The reality was somewhat different, but you had to give...

    which shelter??

    But they certainly help...;) You'd be stuffed in the desert without a brace of Wolf Gypsy wagons..

    Camo Question

    You're missing the point- it's not about hiding, it's about blending with the environment and cutting down on visual pollution. There's nothing worse in my opinion than sitting in the wilds looking at a natural landscape feeling like you're the only one there, and then to have three bright red...

    Had your own boots made?

    Have no fear John, she's not alone - my size 11 feet are exactly the same. My biggest problem, and no doubt your wife's too, is getting boots that I can actually do up tight enough as most of the time the lace eyes actually meet in the middle and STILL the boots are loose.. And as the toes turn...

    Genuine kit is scarce- I got given a brand new set so I'm lucky.:rolleyes: http://www.tacgear.de/produkte/commando-smock.php Tac gear in Germany (great company to deal with) does most of their range in Swedish, Danish, Fleck, DPM, OG, Black etc etc and at pretty good prices IMO.

    Camo Question

    Really glad this hasn't turned into a cammo bashing thread as it usually would..:thanks: I find it a very interesting subject myself. IMO Flecktarn is one of the best, and really comes into it's own in autumn. I would love to get some clothing the same colour as my dog as he just vanishes in...
