Zelter Shelter Review

Zelter Shelter Review I have been using hammocks for a couple of years and I have a really great setup which suits me just fine however, I have found myself in situations where my hammock is not quite suitable and figured it was time to look for an alternative for when the occasion arises. I was invited on a trip ...

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 ...

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). ...

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 ...

EcoZoom Versa Review

Ecozoom Versa Review

EcoZoom Versa Review Before I go into the cooking capabilities of this device I first want to talk about its design and quality. For the price, I have come across devices that cook similarly but are in no way a comparison to this. It reminds me of the wood burning arga I had at my old old farm. Heavy duty, robust and rustically beautiful. The latch ...

Petzl Tactikka Review

Petzl Tactikka Review

Petzl Tactikka Review I have here the hybrid Petzl Tactikka head-torch. It’s called hybrid as it is compatible with both standard AAA batteries and the Petzl Core battery. I must confess I don’t know what sort of difference the Core battery will provide in terms of brightness or length of burn time. I can however tell you that the core ...

Blackhawk UK-SFK Review

Blackhawk UK-SFK Review

Blackhawk UK-SFK Review Well at first glance it looks like its a very high priced collectors knife but, it is meant to be a full on combat knife based on the ‘SFK'(Special Forces Knife) tag. It’s a modern take on the Fairbairn-Sykes and while I doubt it will ever find it’s way into the British military’s standard issue kit, it certainly ...
