I just bought a pre-owned Recta DS-50G sighting compass, to replace the Suunto MC-2 sighting compass I will be giving to my partner as her first compass. The Recta DS-50G is made by Suunto for Recta to even be owned by Suunto, so I know beyond it being a respected Swiss Brand with a long history the DS-50G is essentially a MC-2G with two minor cosmetic difference I have thus far observed.

Yesterday I got a Paramo Velez adventure light smock in pumpkin colour. Not my usual colour, my previous escape from bland was to buy a green buffalo special 6 shirt!!! I figure it'll work cycle commuting in it about 6am in autumn or winter. Well not winter as it'll be dark but it's certainly hiviz. It's the first Paramo jacket to fit me snugly, which as a slim (ish) just shy of 2m tall that's what I call a change in design for Paramo!! No longer just a fat dog walker brand, sorry but that's what it's reputation had become not necessarily what it's users really were.

Any PLCE side pouches will fit (olive, DPM, or MTP). take care not to get the virtus (and some berghaus) pouches. There are some Karrimor MTP drawstring and buckle closure ones that are desitgned to go with the ECM bergens which are quite nice - a few sets on ebay in MTP for not too much money,,,, e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MTP-ECM-...400102?hash=item4b63f2bea6:g:x64AAOSwjwpc0GhY
 
I don´t know but I gues axe overstrike sheath is a protection for the handle to be placed below axe head in case you miss and the axe handle strikes the wood.
You got it
