Water saving Shower System

Check out this BRITISH invention

Looks great especially in the terms of making your water go further if in need of a shower and or washing hands when your water supply is limited.
For something that is lightweight and cheap, i'll be getting one.

Re: Poundland 10 litre water carrier.any good?

Bought two of these a couple of weeks ago for a little up-coming camping trip, thought what could go wrong... and for a pound "you can't go wrong".

Compresses down quit well. 4 modes of light - Bright, Dim, Flashing & Torch mode. Verdict - too heavy & too many batteries for any bug out bag. Would only use this if i had...

Re: Testing out kit

Dangerman, just go out there and enjoy yourself. You will never learn all there is to know - it takes years of trial and testing. Initial thoughts are that you'll be surprised how heavy your bergen can be. Your Water bottles will drain quick. Mozzies and midgies can defeat armies, so have a good hea...
