    Does the PX at Bastion not have a website then :?
  13. Gas is available through the system as are jetboils.

    Where you off to? UK QMs and Yanks Logs had plenty in KAF, feck loads knocking around Bastion. Same threaded canisters and gas type as Coleman gas, Taymar gas and certain Camping Gaz.
  14. part number for the jet boils ? :)
  15. My QM will be in Bastion so that should be sorted then. Thanks for the advice CC_TA very helpful. Wasnt really looking forward to Hexy TV again!
