This weekend is Bushcraft Finland’s Spring meet up and this time 2 nights 3 days. So I have started the packing and new gears are added this time.
One is a gas mask bag. I have seen weekend woodsman using it with back packing and looked convenient and comfortable, so I thought I will try it as well to see if suite me. If this works, the gives me the solution to when I need to pack little more than my summer kit.
2nd item I got this time is a Savotta Military sleeping bag.
Yes, I finally bought sleeping bag good for extreme cold. I can manage up to about -15 degrees Celsius with previous layered summer sleeping bags, but packing comes little problematic if I cannot use sledge to haul the gears. Also takes some effort to set up and crawl myself in to the bag. So, decided to get one proper sleeping bag.
How the woods are compressed and where are the stressed part and so on..
Usually the cross wedges are both wood or one is metal. And the metal one is usually fitted against the growth ring of helve. But this one is other way around.
Man… it was as much difficult as final level of Tetris. Took me about 2 hours to come up with some kind of solution. Let’s see, if this works… if not, then I got good excuse to buy a Frame Pack :)
