Camping kit for 50 quid.

Sgt. Prepper Survival Blog Leave a Comment

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 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 …

  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 …

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 …

Blackhawk UK-SFK Review

Sgt. Prepper Prepper Gear Reviews, Survival Blog Leave a Comment

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 …

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 …
