No affiliation but I was looking for a 100% wool blanket to actually cut up and make an Anorak. Coleman's surplus annoyingly has all kinds of cool European military blankets listed on their site but they are perpetually out of stock.

So in Googleing I came up with this:

http://www.ohioprepsupply.com/100-pure- ... ket-green/

Image

I'm getting the "can't determine image size" error so can't post pictures. Anyway $40 shipped to my door and since they are only 60 or 70 miles away FedEx dropped it off in 24 hours from order. I couldn't be happier with this. Says 100% Merino wool - I have no way to verify that but it is definitely 100% wool. Itchy to be sure.

61 X 79 inches, 3.6 pounds, made in Poland. Available in forest green, brown and camo.

I'm reluctant to cut this up for a sewing project but it will be perfect for an Anorak and save me at least $200.
FIFY.

Okay, now it looks fine. Must have been having issues earlier when I tried.

This email sale is full of great deals. https://us3.campaign-archive.com/?e=[UN ... =HTMLEmail 4 ammo cans for like $10. 4 machetes for like $12 IIRC. A bunch of stuff that's great for bugging out or bugging in.

"Trancia"? Looks like a low-quality knock-off of Trangia.

I'm sure it's a misspelling. They are too scratched up and worn to be knockoffs. This is my local surplus store. I'd say they are legit. I mean I'm sure it's Sweden's version of one.

Good to know. Sweden sent a bunch of milsurp Trangia stoves & kit to Lithuania after the latter became independent, and a lot of those are showing up on E*Bay. So they might actually be genuine as you note, in which case that's a bargain-basement price.

Sopako Reduced Sodium civilian "MREs": Seven (7) for $24.43 shipped.

https://meatball.thatdailydeal.com/fast ... 2c80f898d1

"MRE" in quotes because these are not complete MREs. They lack any kind of beverage and are a little light on the side items. See pic below for a good representation of what you get in each kit. The "toaster pastries" are - you guessed it - Poptarts (two, guaranteed to be fused together). Plan on the Tootsie roll spending some quality time in your mouth before you can actually chew it.

I ordered these from this company a year or two ago. As I recall, it took a little longer to ship than I'd have liked, but Amazon Prime has spoiled me forever, as have unlimited data plans and heated car seats. Reduced sodium wasn't an issue; they seemed plenty salty to me. Biggest issue I have is they're towards the end of their shelf life, within a year or two if I recall correctly. If the 7.1 gajillion Youtube videos are to be believed, these will be fine for at least a few more years beyond their expiration. But I still wouldn't buy these as long term food stores. Instead, think of this as an inexpensive way to try out MRE-ish rations if you're curious and have never tried. FYI: all of the FRHs in mine activated fine and got good and hot.

Heated car seats are good, but heated and cooled car seats are two steps above awesome. And a heated steering wheel is my arthritic hands best friend. :ooh:
