We recently got a box of freeze dried foods from a marketing company representing Fuel Yo ur Preparation. I had a few of them last summer and I remember really enjoying their sweet
and sour chicken with rice (so I’m gutted that wasn’t in there) but there are plenty of foods in this 5 day kit to keep me and Gav fat on a weekend hike. Although I knew from the start I wouldn’t like every meal as I am a fussy eater with certain things. I can at least give an honest opinion on meals I would/should like and the rest, well, let’s just say I know how to make Gav ‘choose’ the ones I don’t like so that I can actually have the ones I do.

MecArmy PT26 Review
It comes with a carry pouch that has a belt loop and D ring on the back and a premium looking soft wrist lanyard. I don’t know if all of these come with the 26650 battery but mine did which gives it the most power and lifespan on a single charge and it also came with a plastic sleeve for the smaller 18650 batteries.

So I recently got my hands on this little lantern from Planet Camping in the UK. It’s the first lantern I have bought in the last 15-20 years since my wind up lantern eventually gave in so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I figured It would be large and heavy and only last a few hours on some giant battery but I was hugely mistaken. It’s fist sized, and rather light, which makes it great for keeping in my pack. It’s probably about half the height of a fizzy drinks can and a little bit wider. I have camped a few times and taken this with me now and I usually forget that I have it because it’s so compact. It also comes with a hook to hang in a tent or from a branch and as for the rest of the construction it feels very well m Continue reading Power Bank Camping Light Review
