It depends how much you can carry i suppose. I like a 100l rucksacks really, the more it can hold, the better imo. It wants to be made of a tough material and waterproof or partially waterproof ideally with good solid hip straps. But its partially about what you prefer, you might be looking for a smaller 20L or so grab and run bag?

Some people say external frame rucksacks are better but tbh i have never had one, so i dont know. These a thread which i made about Tents too - http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showthread.php?t=92465 some good videos and info in there.

I've got the destruction test video's fook me that blade is strong and versatile and virtually indestructible, that's one of the reasons I'm going to get one

Yeah it impressed me aswell and for 20 odd pound you cant really go wrong.

The cold steel shovel is also a good piece of kit, you can use it like an axe too - Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel - Demonstration & Review -
