    Have you bought any new 'shinies' today you'd like to show off?

    To start off, I've just ordered myself a shiny new GB Wildlife hatchet.... :rolleyes:

    Not shiny but green- picked up my customised double-ventile smock from Hilltrek. They added side zips, upper sleeve pockets on each arm, kangaroo type pouch pockets raised to allow use with hip belt and new style wired hood. Oh and they sewed on my BCUK badge on for me too. Not cheap, but quality rarely is!

    Will write up a review with pics when I've had a chance to use it in anger.

    ATB, kp

    Quite a character - sounds like his missus doesn't like him in the house much. I'm not surprised… ;-)

    …and I just bought an Airgrill today!
