Hatcher vs. Axes
Everyone's experience is different of course. I come from a land where freezing temps and dead spruce are the norm and to save weight I don't bring fuel. I harvest dead wood for cooking, ...

Granfor Bruks
I have both the GB Wildlife(23oz) and the GB Mini Hatchet(13oz). The former I have used extensively and love, but the latter I just purchased and like its size, weight and feel, but haven't pu...

Manufacture Year
Yes they definitely have an issue based on this thread alone. I assumed my situation was an anomaly. I am curious regarding how long standing this issue. I note failures with the new Hyperlit...

Seel Outside

S2S Nano
I also use the nano bug net in a Ultamid 2 (HMG). It is fool proof really. I attached a tiny plastic eye to the inside of my tent to attach the peak to. I usually use 2 of these at a time when I...
