  1.  OK for light accessories,...


    The clip isn't that strong or robust, it will suffice for attaching keys or a small torch to a belt loop, but I doubt it's up to the job of supporting a tarp or basha.

  2.  Sorry, but I'm an armour geek,...


    .... and that's a Vambrace, not a Gauntlet. Looks very cool however.

  3.  Excellent tool,...


    ... compact, and easy to use, all tools lock. Exactly the same as the Gerber Suspension,.... bar the grips.

  4.  Old Skool and still Cool.


    Was tidying up my camping gear and found one of these and a hexi refill inside my mess tins recently. I used these when I was younger, introduced to them by my airforce dad. I've used these on the Coast to Coast, Lyke Wake, Pennine Way, and West Highland Way. Prefer these to gas, as they are more compact and more stable, you know exactly how much fuel you have, and can supplement your brewing power with twigs. Yes they can be a bit hard to light, but the hand gel suggestion is pure genius, I used to use alcohol jelly fuel refills, but hand gel is a far better idea, being dual purpose. I also pack a jet flame lighter, as it burns hotter, is more directional, and is less wind prone. Hell, get both. And yes, they do soot up your mess tins, but a quick rub on some wet grass will get the worst off.

  5.  Just amazing. Really.


    How good can a single 'AAA' torch be? Meet the torch that sets the bar, and that few others can match. You might think it's a bit pricey for a torch that only takes one battery,... like it couldn't possibly be that good?

    Oh but it is. The light is white, pure white, and bright. It can be focussed from a flood to a spot with a simple push, so you can use it up close (say to look at maps) without blinding yourself, and then for distance work.

    Treat this torch to some Energiser Lithium AAA batteries, and you'll have a compact, bright, and long lasting torch that will make you realise the 21st century really is here.

  6.  Quite useful,...


    ... just add a solar shower to rinse sandy feet off, and it becomes a five star combination for changing post surf.

  7.  One of the best Cyberpunk films, ...


    ... when I heard 'Johnny Mnemonic' was being made into a movie I was so excited, ... until I saw it.

    But then came 'Strange Days', which captured the essence of Cyberpunk, and delivered a rooted in reality dark future, an anti-hero, a conspiracy, interpersonal strife, and a little technology to glue it all together. It was the film that 'Johnny Mnemonic' could have been, if they'd put the effort in. Thankyou 'Strange Days' for rescuing the genre.

  8.  Steering?


    The blurb says;

    "Plane can only be steered when in motion - forward, left and right operation"

    Really? This isn't one of those hovering aeroplanes then?;-)
