5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it, put in the top of your pack, and know a whole host of useful information is too hand,and requires no batterys, 5 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
for a single waterproof sheet, its covers everything needed, I didn't use it for map reading as the Path is so well signposted, if I used it, it was to compare with my guide book and tick off the miles,a great system of every mile or km marked, plenty of information and well laid out to read, personally I would say not needed, and certainly not worth carrying ordnance survey maps, the route is so well sign posted its impossible to get lost. but to know that's info is there is a great comfort, as this item will not loose battery power, or die on you when needed,

5.0 out of 5 stars a great knife and sensible price, makes you look at their whole range, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought this, after seen on the Preppers guide website, for the price of postage and packing, and the quality of the workmanship, I believe I have just been gifted a great knife for £13-59 this will not break or bend, as its a full length of metal , love the handle texture, a hard rubber grip, which can be customised to your own ideas, as it has flat head screws, for a knife I would happily argue the quality against any other knife I have seen of a similar size, the price is obviously a disgruntled employee (Anglo arms) getting his own back. as I would happily pay double the price for this little beauty, see it on you tube for a better review, thank you for giving us a great knife at a sensible price ,

5.0 out of 5 stars A tent that is very durable and well designed and made for peace of mind, its gets a deserved 5 star, 16 Nov. 2015
I brought this tent from a shop and literally took their advice, as I simply wanted a lighter tent and some thing more modern than what I had (a Vango force 10 ) I am 6 foot four" tall (192 cm) and 20 stone larger than the average camper, I took the 2 person as I did not want a coffin size bivvy, or want to have cloth touching my face, yes its a 2 person tent, but for me its very comfortable and liveable, we have so far done the wainwright Coast to coast, Hadrian's wall, the Pennines, and been all over Snowdonia, and Knoydart, its withstood rain and lots of rain, positioned into the wind and pegged, I have never lost a nights sleep, its very durable and sturdy for any weather,
I cant fault it for back packing or its design, easy to get in and sit up in, cooked many a meal in the porch, its shop price be-lies its value, and its weight makes it a top choice in comparison choice,
for carrying and using in any weather ,I find it hard to replace or better,as its still as good as the day I brought it,

5.0 out of 5 stars kajaki, a brillantly made film of a tragic place, no swear words allowed to express my anger at their sacrifice, 28 Aug. 2015

This review is from: Kajaki [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
its emotional, I didn't enjoy the film, for what they endured and how they suffered , I cried more than the missus, you cant enjoy it, and but you'll have the utmost respect for the whole story and how they even got to make it , ie, funding wise,the story is history now, a sad part our army has given to the government.and for what ? I look forward to this years Para Ten at Catterick garrison 2015 and shaking a few hands,

5.0 out of 5 stars they say buy cheap buy twice, and i have no regrets for a fiver, its worth every penny, 28 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this simply as a ground barrier protection, it is thin and effect ,very very light, and packs very small ,for my sleeping mat comfort I use a Klymit inertia X frame (skeleton)which fits inside your sleeping bag and did not want my sleeping bag to touch the floor directly, I gave it five stars for price,weight,and what it achieves, for its price it will simply do a job and I will have no regrets binning it after, as I know it will not take a lot of harsh punishment, I do know it works keeping my sleeping bag dry,

5.0 out of 5 stars The quality and what they do, justify the price, 11 Dec. 2014
I've had these with Scarpa SL boots, yes tricky to fit toes into onto boots, may have to wiggle the strap underneath into a good position on sole ,I I used super glue on toes fitting, but once the hassle of setting up , using a hair dryer and a lot tugging,
These are simply the best combination of boots and gaiters, if your off track and and need protection , trust me, this have saved my feet and socks from failing me,seen other boots and lesser gaiters leak and allow water into breaking that seal of wet boots and water immersion ,
I would happily buy again as I know they work and perform in the wettest toughest miserable places in the UK, price is the key word, buy cheap and buy twice,but when out doors there is no buy twice option, and that means soggy socks

5.0 out of 5 stars A security guard's dream tool," tell no lies", 7 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant, as a security guard at the lower level of food chain or customer services , this certainly has been a bonus to my working life, and is a very powerful tool, I won't go into detail. But it's saved me my job a few times, and when you challenge an accusation and offer a statement and offer a voice recording, on a shiny disc,
It's purely worth it to see the whole scenario change, and jaws drop.
For the simple brilliance of a voice activated dictaphone,
If your in a job dealing with all walks of life, this Pen is mightier than any sword,
buy it so you can simply work and enjoy your life without fretting over other people accusations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly a one off, and design classic,, 7 Sept. 2014
I brought one in my quest to go lighter and make myself conscious of what I carry and stop myself carrying un wanted items, it's size certainly makes one re think packing, it's certainly light weight , very comfortable and supportive, I feel I will be making my own mods on it, but I like the build quality and that it's unique,
I can only write back more when it's been out in the fields and done it's job over a period of time , but I like it and impressed so far when I have used it out and about over the weekends
