Highlander Non-Stick Coated Mess Tins - Black Highlander

1.0 out of 5 stars Non Stick Mess Tins., 16 July 2013
This is a fantastic 'outdoors' product. 'In theory'. The square shape is great for packing away and the two can be used as a box for brew kit etc.

Zippo Armor  Lighter - High Polish Brass Zippo

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Zippo's, 20 Sep 2011
This truly must be the best of the Zippo Lighter's currently available. It has a much heavier and more robust feel to the non armour type which I find somewhat plasticcy compared to the older variants. Using it has so far been a pleasure - reliable flame - good spring open action - no leakage.

In short it lives up exactly to what it would say on the tin if it came in one !
