Trangia 27 Cookset With Kettle & Spirit Burner
Trangia 27 Cookset With Kettle & Spirit Burner
Offered by Summits outdoor
Price: £44.99

5.0 out of 5 stars thanks trangia for 20 years of cooking, 23 Dec. 2015
I bought my trangia 20 years ago and it's still going strong. Only thing was the frying pan /lid has warped a little over the time but is not a big issue. Still works well. Especially in high winds. A great advantage is it all folds into itself for transportation. And yet when assembled is very stable and complete with windbreak, so feel confident to light it and do something else while it comes up to the boil. Unlike gas where your pot is balancing on the top.. and you are fearful of it toppling over or the wind blowing it out. Trangia is ultra reliable. No problem s ever. Another advantage is you can see how much fuel you have left. Personally I think it's a really economical way of cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellant pack, 14 Nov. 2015
Had my one of these 14 years now, has been all over the world with me on holiday s, camping and hiking trips, as well as being used on 2 operational tour s in the army. Still has plenty of life left in it. Will definitely be buying another one when this is done... One of the Best £20 I've spent. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars quick, dry, stable, small, 13 July 2015

This review is from: VANGO Banshee 200 Tent (Sports)
This is my second vango tent, my first was a micro 4 which I have had 20 years and is still as good as it ever was, dependable, quick to erect and stable in high winds, only reason I bought this was because the Microsoft 4 is a 2-3 man tent, and I wanted something smaller, I picked this tent as it has nearly all the same features as the micro 4. Including tension bands, alloy poles, one pitch, tightening peg points. This tent did not disappoint, firstly it arrived very quickly, when it first arrive s you will find the inner and outer are rolled up separately, I would suggest you take 5 minutes before taking it away as I did carefully joining them together so that they pitch together. I was glad I did this as I live in northern Ireland where the only guaranteed weather is rain. So the next day I took it to the mourne mountain s to try it out and as I was familiar with the vango one pitch system it took little more than 4 minutes to put up, during which as predicted the rain started. But with me and my kit safely stowed in my tent I wasn't bothered, leaning out the door way on the opposite side of the Windows, cooking dinner on my faithful trangia, I got to watch less fortunate travellers struggling in the rain to get their tent s up. Most of which were inner pitch first, so no doubt were damp by the time they got into them... They must have took nearly double the time to put up there's. That night the heaven s opened, and I'm assured by other travellers that it was quite windy, though my tent stood firm and dry inside and I enjoyed a peaceful nights sleep.. the only comment I would make is although this is supposedly a 2 man tent I would suggest it is only a one man tent bar a real emergency. As with me and my 75l rucksack inside it was a snug perfect. But this is what I wanted... As most back packers know a tent size is normally over estimated by at least one once you add their stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars wood buy again, 1 May 2015

Would definitely buy again, real cosy. Thanks to reading other reviews knew to order a size bigger which fits ok, though if I bought again I think I would buy the next size up again as I'm broad shouldered the arm length was a little neat, though long enough to look ok would have preferred a little baggier.

5.0 out of 5 stars good stuff, 13 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is basically the same as sealeys kit but a fraction of the price, used it today to do front wheel bearing on my skoda fabia. Made life easy. Anyone doing same job there s a good video of this tool in action on you tube being used on a polo. Top tips track rod end can be left in place... Also a 2 legged puller is the best way to remove drive shaft from old bearing, make s life easy

A little disappointing, though there were a few moments of hilarity... Thought there were also some weaker dead spots to the film

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be a good phone if, 3 Aug. 2014
Would be a good phone if, it had more memory. Although advertised as having 4gb most of it is took up with pre installed stuff, and you cant move apps to the sd card like you can with the Desire hd. Also the screen is glitchy every now and again it cant cope with the speed of the processor and goes blocky for a second. Is quite annoying. Also hate that blink feed thing, and you cant turn it off only move it to another page... In the end went back to my old HTC Desire hd

5.0 out of 5 stars and found it to be a truely awesome phone, can easily match iPhone 4, 3 Aug. 2014
Bought one of these phones about 3 years ago, and found it to be a truely awesome phone, can easily match iPhone 4. This year I was offered an upgrade of a HTC Desire 500, which I found to be a good phone but although it has more memory on paper than the desire hd, in reality it doesn't and seriously lacks the capacity that the desire hd has with its memory card. This is due to the fact that on the 500 you cant move apps to the sd card like you can on the hd. As a consequence I have gone back to using my HTC Desire hd.
