"I firmly believe that far from hurting the planet, the growing knowledge of Bushcraft is helping our natural world.  When we employ bushcraft skills, it may seem as though we are consuming natural resources.  But of course, the more we learn about the trees, the plants, the animals around us, the more we respect them.  The more we respect them, the more we cherish them, the more we nurture and take care of them.  That is the underlying principle of Bushcra

Congratulations BV !!

Yours is a fine addition to this site - and a boon for all of us.

What Hoop indicated, but did not state overtly is all of the innovation that you add to your gear.

Functional, simple, ready for the trail, and likely better than most competitors' similar goods!

Thanks for all the kind words.

I have been making all sorts of gear for longer than I can remember, tarps, packs and the odd tent or three, and have been making and selling firebox style stoves for at least ten years.

I love my winter camping, it was a big part of why we came to Canada from the UK, and have enjoyed developing gear that makes life easier for me and hopefully others think that it works for them too.

I'm happy to take a look at any ideas you have for winter camping, paddling or backpacking gear though probably the only thing I don't do is clothing, other folk do that so much better than me.

Look forward to seeing you on the trail somewhere.
