Keela Belay Smock Review

Keela Belay Smock Review

Keela Belay Smock Review Well I’ve probably missed the ideal time of year for this smock in Britain as winter has now left us and a warm spring has already had me in shorts several times. I like getting ahead on seasonal goods though as it gives me a chance to make sure I’m prepared and I have plenty of time to get ...

Blackhawk Tatang Review

Blackhawk Tatang Review

Blackhawk Tatang Review So let’ just make this clear from the start. This is a combat knife, pure and simple. It’s difficult for me to test it in that respect as I’m not from a military background, but as a knife enthusiast I’ve handled many knives and strait out of the box you can see this isn’t for doing some ...

Wazoo Survival Gear

Wazoo Survival Gear

Wazoo Survival Gear So this is a relatively new company to the market but, they do seem to be pushing out some decent gear. They make survival bracelets and belts to zombie t-shirts and key-chains. I have a couple of items here from these guys just to get a flavour of what they are about, specifically their Cache Cap and Bushcraft ...

Ultra Dry Adventurer Dry Sack

Ultra Dry Adventurer Dry Sack

Ultra Dry Adventurer Dry Sack   Well this isn’t going to be a lengthy review, but I thought this was worth giving a bit of attention to. I’ve bought really cheap dry sacks in the past from superstores, just because they were in front of me in an outdoor section, but I never figured there would be a bigger quality ...

La Sportiva Trango Review

La Sportiva Trango Review

La Sportiva Trango Review Specifically, these are the Tango TRX GTX and they are the cheapest of the Trango series,  but that doesn’t mean they are in any way lacking as far as I’m concerned. Well just as a starting point with these boots, they were some of the most comfortable I’ve ever put on out of the box. They are a ...

Mechanix M-PACT 3 Review

Mechanix M-PACT 3 Review

Mechanix M-Pact 3 Review We got our hands on (well in) some great tactical gloves by Mechanix Wear and we loved them. I do a lot of outdoor activities, so I wanted some gloves that would cover most of my tasks and save me having to swap out or carry multiple pairs when I’m out and about. So when I discovered the ...

Petromax FK2 Kettle Review

Petromax FK2 Kettle Review

Petromax FK2 Kettle Review This is a 1.2 litre aluminium kettle, which is plenty to serve a family of 4 with a good hot brew, although they do offer a 0.5 litre version for solo hikers who value space and weight a little more. Like other kettles of this design, it doesn’t take much to get your water boiling. Really ...

Ontario RTAK-II Review

Ontario RTAK-ll Review

Ontario RTAK-II Review   This really is the BIG pappa smurf of the RAT series of blades. I had both the RTAK and Rat-7 arrive in the same box and I just couldn’t believe it. Let me put it this way, I expected the RTAK to be the size of the RAT-7, give or take an inch, so pulling this out immediately ...

Puma IP La Cabra Review

Puma IP La Cabra Review

Puma IP La Cabra Review This is the Puma IP La Cabra. The IP stands for international production and I believe this is the tag for their mid range knives. Really its hard to call it mid range though as I’ve seen Puma knives that cost many thousands so it’s still cheap by their standards. I certainly can’t afford one of ...

Inside the pouch there is: an emergency blanket, emergency sleeping bag, ferro rod and striker, tinder, wire saw, carabiner, water zip-lock bag, and whistle. Outside of the UK there is also a small knife in the kit, but ...

Overboard Pro Sports Backpack Review

Overboard Pro Sports Backpack Review Well at first glance you look at this and think its just a large dry sack with some straps attached, and you aren’t completely wrong, but its a little bit more than that. It’s a sort of ‘more than a dry sack’ and ‘less of a backpack’ combination that might look a little weird but ...
