    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. Blizzard Survival Bag & Survival Jacket

    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.

    Simple, with some snazzy additions to bring it up to speed with recent initiatives, it's cheap and cheerful and can take a bit of a beating but still be useable.

    Designed for light use, this good range of size options means you should have the bag for the job, but just be sure you don't expect too much from them!

  8. Alpkit - Brukit

    Average User Rating:
    5/5,
    After shed loads of pondering, researching and asking on here, I decided to buy this bit of kit. At £35 it really packs a punch and whilst I can't compare it to a Jetboil or MSR, I am more than impressed with the design, quality, ignition and power. 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...
  9. Snugpak Chrysalis 3 - Sleeping Bag

    4/5,
    Those great folk at Snugpak have furnished me with one of their mid range sleeping bags to use, abuse and review. This is a 3 season bag that is rated from a comfort @ -5 to extreme of -10 which I think will be tested thoroughly over the coming weeks on the PW. For now, as with the smock, I am banging this up on the site with their blurb, but I will be updating my thoughts once on the Way, so wait out: When you’re planning a trip where the night temperature can drop down below zero, the...
  10. Grasshopper Simply Pop up Porridge

    Now it is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and never one to turn down a bit of scoff, I hopped at the chance to try grasshopper porridge to see what it was like. The idea behind the hopper pots are quite simple and clever in the fact that they are light and compact and quite robust, and when you are ready for the food, you just remove the lid, add water and stir and then come back in a couple of minutes you have nice hot porridge. The pot initially weighs in at...

    Couple of years ago the Evil Bitch Queen From Hades inexplicably bought me a really useful piece of kit - a Kelly Kettle. Kelly Kettle® - Original & Best | Camping equipment | Camping gear | Survival kit - Home Its a cross between a water heater and a cooker. Looks like a cut-down fire extinguisher and is a bit too big to manpack. The idea is that you can use any available source of flame - twigs, dung, hexy, and the larger size will bring 1.6 litres of water to a boil in 3-5 minutes....
  12. Snugpak Stratosphere Bivi

    Author Rating:
    4.5/5,
    I was massively excited when I received the Stratosphere. I had read that it was lightweight, easy to use and it looked cool. This is what I discovered. When I first tore open the parcel I thought I must have been sent the wrong item. It felt far too light! When packed, the Stratosphere is the same size as an issue 3/4 length issue sleeping mat when it is rolled into it’s bag, hardly any bigger than an issue bivi bag, though you due to the poles it needs to be packed with a little more...
