Me next Batman
I only filter 3ltrs. That does me for trail cocktails and food. Plus water for the morning
Batmans cowel lost its ears in the process mate, send me your new addy
Your wish is granted, special edition for ya !
Too warm for anything serious but cool enough for some wood work...Wheelie bins shed..
Can you make me one? On the other hand, forget it, the shipping costs
Left over Day
Made soms small stuff today.
A zipper pouch from xpac X21 (25gr) and a water bottle strap pocket(19gr) with Spandex and a draw cord.
From the darkest basement corner. Away from blazing sun...beetle XMP arise
Can check at PO?
I lost the last head net on last outing somewhere amongst the peat hags of the Geldie/ Feshie watershed so knocked up another from 27g/m2 no-see-um black mesh, 13g; 80cm * 50cm panel simply folded over & stitched, some shaping to get a 'good' fit over the BB cap & a 1.5mm shock cord in the hem.........an hour well spent given the billions of midge out & about at the moment.
Adding to the lineup PurpleX
That’s a neat Logo
Do you have your web page up?
Replacement alum deo, 14g
i like the style nod to soap on a rope.
it’s time to admit that my stunning myog rucksack that i made last year broke on day 3, my coffee filter mesh wasn’t fine enough so that didn’t work either AND even the cam snaps that I put on my echo hoody, which worked fine when I did them, didn’t work when I actually wanted to use them a few days later. Cam snaps not working?! How could I mess that up? I Also used the dust sheet quilt protector that I made last year, cut down to just footbox length, and had a soggy footbox by morning. All very well intentioned but falling far short of being any use.
Storage for a cone: 600ml Smartwater bottle with cap made from 330ml drinks can. Very neat fit
That is smart-looking. Excuse the bad pun...
I've made a few similar cone storage containers.
I mark the bigger half with volumes (mls) so easy to measure quantities of liquids.
Don't get me started on projects that didn't quite work - or not at all... Perhaps wisely I never attempted a backpack or shelter but stuck with nonessentials.
Big test today for my finally completed cu + cf mat bonded slingback chair at half the weight of the original and double use on top or below airmat.
I'd call that field testing r&d Clare. You've found the weaknesses so you now have information to improve the designs. None of this stuff is just right first time in my experience.
This seems to working well.enough - a little more comfy and half the weight (73gr) of the original slingshot seat. Also a little shorter and the seat section is about 2" wider. Doubles above or below airmat and only used left over / cut off pieces apart from glue and tape.
Smart with a bold capital S
Problem is when I want back support most is at camp and then my poles are holding my shelter up ……….
Which is why the inventor of the Jerry chair was a hammock hanger.
Is this a deodorant type thing? Wet it and rub? Just going by 'deo' in your description
