Vampire earth anyone?

First of all, I tried the search engine, to see if it's been brought up before, but couldn't find anything. The series is called 'The Vampire Earth', first book is 'Way of the wolf'. Author E.E. Knight. The setting is sort of a PAW, but add vampires and weird aliens called the 'Kur'. It has some 'ma...

Re: Making Sleeping Bags Warmer

I'd say Sealegs have it pretty much covered. In my experience the two major issues is to stay dry and stay insulated from the ground. Closed cell foam ftw. Another thing I didn't see mentioned, it's more of a 'stay warm' thing in general: Take a dump! Don't let your body waste energy on keeping your...

Re: The Dying Art of Molding Leather Boots (pic heavy)

Ah, this brings back memories... I remember during my first few days in the military during recruit training (boot camp). The instructors ordered us to fill our boot with hot water from the tap and then put them back on, then wear them untill they were dry. Only a few problems though, this was in ja...

Re: Urgent advice required: ExPed Downmat

Have to agree with ODA and WW, anything inflatable will fail you in the long-term, and you can't risk that... This coming from one doing long and short- range recon for 15+ years... Just my two cents. As for hammocks, I've started using them since since I became a civvy. You still need a sleeping ma...

Re: Help me find a good shell jacket

I'm in the wrong part of the world to have been researching waterproof jackets and fabrics, but I seem to recall some of the UK members mentioning outerwear made from a very finely woven cotton fabric (not canvas) that was naturally waterproof and breathable. It was also less noisy when moving thro...

Re: EDC Bag recommendation

If you do consider a messenger bag (which I think is a great choice for an urban edc bag) I would suggest you look a TNF basecamp messenger bag .

Re: tripwires for perimeter alarm

Just to add my two cents here. Back in my military days, I always set the wire up up at approx chest-height (measuring to my sternum always felt right to me, I'm 6 ' tall), in order to avoid most animals setting it off. Off course this won't help against deer, elk, moose, etc, but foxes, badgers and...
