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 ...

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.

EcoZoom Versa Review

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 ...
