Lightload Towels Review

The Lightload Towels come in various sizes, with the size reviewed being the 30x60cm towels that are supplied in packs of three for £5.99. These are quite expensive at first glance, but they are a particularly tough towel that can be reused on numerous trips rather than being disposable. While this means that while they’re …

Helinox Chair One Review

Last year, in a post on Luxury Wild Camping, one thing we couldn’t sort out was a chair. Now with the Helinox Chair One we can finally live the dream! I’ll admit that this is probably a sign of getting soft/old, but I really don’t care if it means that I can get a proper sit …

DSP Magic Coin Towels

Unscented baby wipes have been an essential on all my trips, being used for anything from wiping up spills, cleaning pots and as a softer alternative to sphagnum moss when needed. They can be reasonably heavy, so these DSP Magic Coin Towel dry wipes to which you add water are an interesting alternative. The DSP Magic …

Tesco Free From Instant Porridge

Having recently discovered that I’ve a gluten intolerance, it seemed that most of my chosen breakfasts were unsuitable. This instant porridge from Tesco is both gluten and dairy free and packing a 180 calories per pot, would be ideal. It’s also in a cardboard pot, which can be recycled as clearly anyone who has a …

Aero Chocolate Dessert

Instant custard makes an interesting if rather bland pudding, so finding these for 19p at my local not-so-supermarket was a bargain I couldn’t refuse. Available in mint and chocolate flavours, they pack 150 calories for 25g in pack weight. I decided to initially test these out in the warmth of the Mud and Routes kitchen …

PHD Minimus Sleeping Bag Review

While there are many sleeping bags that claim to be the lightest, the PHD Minimus is one with a decent claim to that crown. At least as the lightest practical summer bag in UK conditions. How light can a sleeping bag go? Well, it’s got to be a balance between weight and insulation. In theory, you could …

Klymit Cush Seat Pillow

We were excited when we tried out the Klymit X-Frame, as excited as you can get with a sleeping mat, so were keen to test out this multi-use seat pillow when it landed on our doormat. What do they mean by Multiuse? Well, by nature of it’s design it’s much more versatile than your typical …

Tesco Pasta Shells Ready Meals

On a recent shopping trip, during my usual foray into the ready meals aisle, I found these inexpensive pasta puck meals. Are these cheap and cheerful meals from Tesco any good as a camping meal? We find out. Available in bolognese and tuna varieties, these cost only£1.29 compared to a Wayfarers at around £4 or a Look What …

Fuizion Freeze Dried Meals Review

We recently stumbled across Fuizion freeze driedfoods, a brand that was new to us. On browsing their site, it becomes apparent from the photographs that this stuff stands apart from other freeze dries foods if only by being ridiculously photogenic. We couldn’t believe that this product could possibly look as good as the website makes out! We all …

Grower’s Cup Coffee Review

There’s nothing new under the sun they say, but here’s at least one! Perfect coffee in a pouch. We’ve been in search of the perfect camping coffee since, well, since forever, and while we get closer we never quite get there. We got excited about the camping espresso maker by GSI, but were woefully disappointed …

Pepsi Can Meths Stoves

If you want what’s definitely the cheapest and possibly the lightest camping stoves going, then you’re going to have to go for a ‘Pepsi’ can stove. Often called a pop can stove, usually Pepsi and never a Coca-Cola can stove despite the prevalence of the red can on most of the links later on. The adventurous can even …
