Personal Gear and Equipment.

We call this gear ‘personal’ because unlike vehicle specific kit or camping stoves this is the kit you will likely have ‘hands on’ more often as not. As such it will need to be just right and fit in your hand or on your person in some way.

A selection of shovels, spades, axes and saws designed for camping and bush craft use. Fully functional kit mostly will be kept in the vehicle until needed.

Selection of pocket Multitools and knives, designed to be carried on or about the person from simple key ring tools through to ‘survival’ type knives.
