Sneak Peek – AttackPAK
We’ve spoken of our friends at AttackPAK previously.
We met them a couple of years ago at SHOT Show, and they’ve done us a huge favour by sending a Defender Sustainment pack for evaluation and review.

TRIP REPORT – OXFAM TRAILWALKER, JUNE 2019
So, my fellow scout leader Hawk had a brilliant thought:
We should walk the Oxfam Trailwalker.
Oxfam Trailwalker is a challenging event that changes lives. Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane, 21-23 June 2019, sees teams walking 100km or 55km through the beautiful D’Aguilar National Park.

Kit – Using It, Marching Order
Marching Order (aka 3rd Line)
This “how-to” has been a long time coming. I had a draft, with pictures all ready for publishing, but the hard drive I store my documents on died. It’s taken me a significant period of time to get caught back up to where I’m relatively happy (or happier) with the level of detail I need for this article.

REVIEW – OnePlanet Tasman Hybrid Travel Pack
ITEM: Tasman Hybrid Travel Pack
A hybrid travel pack that is designed to be used for adventure trekking in the wilderness, or backpacking (dare I say even “glamping”) through the urban jungle.
Hybrid packs can be stowed as “normal” looking suitcase or duffel bag type luggage, with a hide-away harness feature that allows hip loading backpack to be used for full carrying comfort. Other sites like https://planettravelerusa.com/ often recommend hybrid packs for adventures in the outdoors, so it’s not hard to see why the Tasman was designed as one.
