Ooh yes... I like the functional look of that cup Blu ... (Plus it comes it its own lickle bag )
Thermorest pillow ... I think I need one of those. I am tired of using all sorts of things folded over for a pillow
Never tried rc lantern... Tend to use a few little lanterns rather than one big one .

I want one of these having seen it on a thread complaining (rightly) about hideous bucket sized free gift SportsDirect mugs.

I like the folding handle and light weight, and the fact that it can go on the stove, and is made of titanium. Cooool!

Ooh more replies smile
I just looked at pie iron website Blu... Lovely things.
I have never heard of a shower friend... What a good idea ! ...(although camping showers supposed to be rubbish surely... Otherwise it's not real camping) wink

A shower friend!

(if you havnt already got one) They keep the button pressed in on campsite/swimming showers so you dont have to keep pressing the button smile

If you have a camp fire look at pie irons, campfire grills, grandpa's toasting forks and other campfire paraphanalia. A fire steel will keep an older child / young teen occupied for ages trying to light a fire.

I would like a pie iron, but can't decide which sort to get. And no one is offering to buy me one, anyway.

And just in time for Christmas, CoolboxesUK are offering a free post and packing discount until Jan 1st!
