Petromax Fire Anchor Review

Petromax Fire Anchor Review Petromax Fire Anchor Review I’m going to get the cons out of the way early so that I don’t get carried away with my love of this cooking system and forget to point them out. The weight. It is heavy. It’s all cast iron so it does have some heft and that means I wont be ...

Blackfox BF-500 / BF-501 Balisong Review

I was recently in France for a short trip and while there I couldn’t resist heading to some of the knife shops in Paris. I know, I have a problem. While there I got hold of a knife for a few days to quaff my urges and boy, was I happy. Of all of the blades we see in modern ...

The Blizzard Survival Blanket Review

The Blizzard Survival Blanket isn’t exactly your everyday pocket size emergency sheet. Its a sleeping bag sized blanket that puffs up a little bit for extra thermal insulation and comes in a vacuum packed packet about the size of a house brick. It wont be accompanying you on an average hike but for the more adventurous who may be going ...

Solo Stove LITE Review

There are a few different sizes of Solo Stove available. This is the ‘LITE’ which, according to the box, is suitable for 1-2 people. The ‘Campfire’ is the big daddy and if it weight-size ratio is similar to this will be very much a good accessory for the glampers of today. It’s very compact and light. It weighs about the ...

Nordic Pocket Saw Review

The Nordic Pocket Saw review is definitely not going to take long to review. It’s not a revolutionary product that’s only just come out on the market and it does have a higher price tag than most on Amazon. So really, the only question is, does it cut? Yes. Review done, see you guys later, here’s some photo’s. Obviously I’m ...

Boker Plus Wildcat Karambit Review

Boker Plus Wildcat Karambit Review I will confess that, when I purchased this particular knife, I was certainly not considering the practical applications for this blade. I had not owned a karambit and I needed a folding knife for camping and when I saw the unique styling, coupled with the Boker Plus brand name, I was immediately sold and spent ...

Camping kit for 50 quid.

I often get asked when out camping with friends ‘Whats the best knife for £50?’, I usually notice however, that what they really need is a basic setup. I don’t mind loaning kit to friends but, when they want to spend £50 on a knife yet have nothing to sleep in or are carrying their camping kit in plastic bags, ...

Olight SR Mini Intimidator II Review

Olight SR Mini Intimidator II Review First thing is it comes in a nice little plastic hard case. It’s not a heavy duty case but it’s certainly better than the usual cardboard box you get with torches. It has foam inserts to keep everything secure and it looks good. It’s probably larger than needed to the point that I wouldnt ...

Olight R50 Pro Seeker Review

Olight R50 Pro Seeker Review It comes in a well designed box. It is cardboard so it wont last a lifetime but it’s certainly made to a high standard. The large box suggests it houses a large torch but actually when opening the box you find a very small (for the spec) handheld pocket piece that could easily be overlooked ...

MecArmy PT26 Review

  MecArmy PT26 Review *Update* Well I haven’t ever done this with a review article before but I’m going to add a little bit for this product as I have had it for a while now and I think it deserves more praise than it originally received (not that I did not think it was already a good product then). ...

Power Bank Camping Light Review

  Power Bank Camping Light Review So I recently got my hands on this little lantern from Planet Camping in the UK. It’s the first lantern I have bought in the last 15-20 years since my wind up lantern eventually gave in so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I figured It would be large and heavy and only last a few ...

Kizlyar Supreme Corsair Review

Kizlyar Supreme Corsair Review Well Kizlyar Supreme haven’t been on my radar for very long and they probably haven’t been on yours either, as they have only been going for about 6 years but, they already have an impressive array of blades available all over the world. The thing is that it doesn’t take long with determination and skill to get ...
