There’s nothing like getting gear on your birthday. It totally makes blowing out the 46 candles much easier. Today I received the Klymit Inertia X Frame sleeping pad. It comes in a box with the patch, kit, stuff sack, and pump.
Upon unpacking, you can see that it’s going to be a big…
Phil & Teds is a crazy New Zealand company.
Their website always makes me feel extremely straight laced and like I am not having enough fun parenting.
We have been loaned a Phil and Ted double inline stroller since the summer after Euell’s birth. Here is one of those first days:
Thought I’d share some of my favourite pictures with my new followers…….
A very small selection of some of my adventures and search and rescue.

Warbonnet Outdoors Blackbird hammock and super fly tarp.
This is a hammock I received some time ago from the good people over at warbonnet outdoors.
It’s hard to find a starting point with this review as there is so much to say.
I have been lucky enough to stay in quit a few different hammocks and when I first saw the Blackbird hammock I was keen to test it out.
Iv had a few nights out in this hammock now, everywhere from woodland to disused quarry’s and Forrest’s.
Made from an extremely lightweight but tough fabric if looked after it should last a lifetime of use. What was great about this hammock is the simplicity of set up and it small packable size.
The mosquito netting can be un-zipped and a lightweight fabrics can be added in its place helping to insulate the hammock, this creates a hanging tent if you will.
The super fly tarp was large enough for you to still store plenty of kit under, and provided ample living space.
Some of the other features that made this hammock stand out from the rest were, the roomy foot box which allows you to lie across the hammock so you can sleep in a flat position. It has a great ridge line to not only create space inside but provide a good amount of hanging space. The hammock has one more trick up its sleeve………. It has a gear shelf! That’s right the people at warbonnet outdoors took something good and made it great. This helps provide a good amount of living space inside but would no doubt make it easier to live in during long periods away.
I was met with fantastic customer service from the people at warbonnet outdoors.
I’d like to say a big thank you to the people who made this review possible.

Hope you enjoyed the review.
On my radar: The Skinth
While there are several companies with unique EDC storage solutions, the Skinth is definitely on my wish list. Available in various sizes and colors, it’s essentially customizable in every way. My favorites are the Juice Box, the Smartphone, and the Trail Blazer (pictured above). I also appreciate that it can be worn on a belt or clipped to the inside of a bag.
Customer testimonies acknowledge the high quality of the product, and the price—some items start as low as $12—is hard to beat.
Especially designed for unique living experiences, PODhouses are a stylish accommodation alternative for those who enjoy sleeping and playing in the middle of nature. The products come in various sizes and shapes, and can be used in campsites or as an exquisite extension of a hotel. All structures are made of wood, offering comfort, safety and weather protection. They’re delivered pre-assembled and clients have also the opportunity to order them furnished. The interior design is taken care of by Switzerland-based agency Livingcase.
I’ll go during summer. Unless someone wants to go with me and then I’ll pay for them to go…but you have to cuddle/snuggle with me to keep me warm.
The MR762A1 is the civilian model of the HK 417, the big brother to the HK 416. Like its chief rival the FN SCAR 17S, the MR762 is piston driven. Note the HK front and rear sights that mimic the original G3 sights. One of the major drawbacks for the MR762 is its proprietary magazine. If you’ve got $6,600 to spare, this entire package is for sale online, minus the grenades. (GRH)
