Dragonfly Multi-fuel stove
The adjusting flame control on this stove make the extra few
dollars every bit worthwhile.
Multi-fuel backpacking stove easily adjusts from a slow simmer
to a rolling boil, in any temperature or altitude due to the
precise flame control.
and Leadership - Eric Langmuir
An invaluable reference tool for everyone, whether novice or
experienced, who wish to venture in to the hills in safety.
navigation, camping, expeditions, weather and leadership. A
vast array of techniques and essential information.
A real boy scout gadget this one. A superb fire igniting tool
with a magnesium and flint strip. Performs well in wet conditions,
cold temperatures, and high elevations. No more setting your
self on fire as you try to light your stove! and the flint sparks
can be seen from 3 miles away at night!
I use this as a grill for anything from toast to squid. The
stainless steel gauze heats rapidly enabling toast to be browned
extremely quickly. You use it on a fire or stove and it folds
flat for easy storage and transportation.
Zenith Telescopic Rod
I've always travelled with a telescopic rod and this one is
about as good as I've seen. It is very light, versatile and
capable of holding on to the bigger surprises.
Good for on and off-road adventures , the Yak's low centre of
gravity, narrow profile, and versatile capacity, enables you
to travel in style while getting the weight off of their bike's
frame. Use the Yak for self-contained trips into the backcountry.
- Extrex Summit
You'll still need your map and compass though this gadget will
increase your confidence and could help get you out of a spot
of bother quickly. This new all-in-one navigation device is
the first combination GPS, altimeter, and electronic compass.
The electronic compass provides bearing information when you're
standing still and the altimeter determines precise altitude,
so you can tell how high you've climbed and your rate of ascent.
Been really impressed with the versatility and control of the
Nikon Coolpix 990. Its exceptionally well-designed user
interface and controls and 3.34 megapixel sensor delivers 2048
x 1536 images. Ive had some excellent results, most of
the pictures on this site have been generated using this camera.
N.B. Dont skimp out on memory if
youre traveling with a digital Camera. I have a 200mb
Compact Flash which gets me by and I down load via an external
USB Compact flash device.
We wear this base layer all the time, depending on how cool
it is, long or short sleeved. It is versatile in its performance
for all outdoor activities, keeps you dry, regulates body temperature
and is odour resistant and comfortable. Cant recommend
it any more.
Jukebox MP3 Player
This gadget is the way forward if you just need to have music
with you when you travel. Mine is the 6GB version, I can fit
about 150 CD's on here and there is a 20GB version out now.
Very simple to load copy CD's, you can even update on the move
in internet cafes. With this sort of flexibility you never get
bored of the same tracks.
Shox Phsylo SL
I love these shocks, they give superb flexibility.
The Psylo SL gives you RockShox's U-Turn spring system that
switches the travel from 80mm to 125mm. It also has the Climb-It
Control, which locks out the suspension completely - really
useful for climbs and grinding it out on the road.
Speedometer, Odometer, Altimeter - this ones got everything,
time temperature, barometer, combined altitude gain. It's fun
to see some of the statistics for all the hard work you put
Cateye Mini Compass
Its reassuring to know you are still going in the right
direction and particularly useful when trying to find you way
around and out of cities. Extremely lightweight.
It's a little filter that's huge on value and versatility. No
other filter available offers the field maintainability of the
MiniWorks filter that's why it was selected by the Amphibious
Raids & Reconnaissance Division of the U.S. Marine Corp
as the filter of choice for fast-and-light missions. The Mini-Works
filter is ultra compact, light, easy to use and can go with
you on short day hikes and multi-month international treks.
If Q was building James Bond a bike hed spec it with this
derailleur. Superb reliability.
I love the old bell on my bike
allows you to alert and
interact with people as youre passing by in a wonderfully
nostalgic and traditional manner. Ring-ring-ring!
