Just got myself some second hand British army gear !!

[img=http://s17.postimg.org/vjhj050ob/image.jpg]

Got myself a sleeping bag. I already have one I really like but this one is -10 so should be fun I'll see. Only cost £20! Needed a new tarp also I only had the cheap cheap one and got a wee hole in it
you can get all that issue gear for free

you just need to join the army first. yea so £20 is a bargain

Thanks for the heads up, picked one up this morning. Should have got a spare whilst I was there. Seems well made and smaller in the hand than the pictures portray. Ip67 rubberised outer and lighter than I expected. Can't see me making much use of the torch other than to drain and fully recharge it but the battery level indicator is just what I was looking for.

They'd sold out online by midday yesterday.

Those that have them, what's the torch like? I was going to pick one up as a long running torch.
