Follow Taro as he uses some of his old German and Swiss Army gear on a day trip out into the wood. Taro shows us just how well old Army gear works and the items he uses can be had for a very cheap price.
Much of the gear he uses can be found in Army surplus stores around the world. A lot of old Swiss and German Army gear can be found in the USA for very cheap.
Sometimes it’s fun to use this type of older survival gear because you don’t mind it getting dirty and beat up. That lets you relax and enjoy you trip without having to worry about the little nicks and tears you may acquire while building camp.
Taro builds a Tipi out of two east German Army tarps, he then gets comfortable with a insulation sleep mat made by the German Army and a wool blanket of the Swiss army.
You can find loads of German and Swiss Military surplus gear here.
