    An efficient, time saving and effective method of cleaning the weapon in the field or as part of a strip down. Durable and robust, it's worth the money.

    4/5,
    A two item review of two bits of survival kit from Blizzard - the jacket and the bag. Both very good at what they do but also, very specific uses unless you go all improvisational on it and don't mind sounding like you're fighting in a crisp packet.

The cup takes a litre of water and will get to a rolling boil in 5m 28s. It uses 100g or 230g canisters and The Range is the store to go to because they flog them at £2.99. Let's see how it does next week eh? Here is their description: BruKit...

    4/5,
    Those great folk at Snugpak have furnished me with one of their mid range sleeping bags to use, abuse and review.
