it’s been incredibly useful for green-laning. During our cold winter months, getting in and out of your 4x4 when it’s cold or lashing it down with sleet or snow…Read More
This hat is mainly aimed at men, but I liked it so much when it arrived at Muddy HQ that I claimed it for myself. I really like this hat from the Swedish company Pinewood, and it has some great qualities that other hats don't have, like the mosquito net that is easily be hidden away insideRead More
I was at a trade show recently when I came across this handy little product. It was something that I didn't know I needed (I didn't even know it existed), but has since become a vital piece of my travelling equipment, and also something that is regularly used in our house….Read More
The other month when I received the Primus Campfiire Cookset, but something was missing, and that something was a stove that was as spiffy as the pans. Then it hit me, why don't I be cheeky and ask Primus if I could borrow their stylish Onja stove, after all I might as well keep it in the family, so to speak, and I’d always secretly fancied one…Read More
Recently we’ve fancied something a bit more, well, varied for our alfresco lunches. The problem here is that my BBQ skills are limited to throwing on slabs of meat, and that's pretty much it, that was until we took delivery of the durable Primus 18/8 stainless steel Campfire Cookset…Read More
"Seriously, how many multitools does someone need before it becomes something of an obsession?"
That was the question Muddy Madam posed when my new Leatherman Signal arrived at Muddy Towers. To be honest, I don’t know the answer to…Read More
One product that I really wanted to get my hands on first was a decent sized table, one that could handle the weight of something like the Firepod (20Kg), but more importantly be tall enough for me not to crouch over when I’m cooking or preparing food…Read More
I discovered the CarPET Remover at a garden & leisure trade show a little while ago, and it does what it says, as it's a whizz at removing all traces of Gizmo's hair from the couch and carpet. We also found it's great for…Read More
The Viva Zipper is a continuation of Frio’s wallet range which are designed for holding medication that need to be kept cool (eg insulin), so it’s brilliant for taking on trips where access to fridges can be sporadic, or just for keeping your medication cool in hot cars…..Read More
Here in Great Britain we are never ready for the sun to shine. It happens so rarely that we are shocked each time, but after that shock subsides we head off to beaches, amusement parks or go wandering up hills. These are the places you don't tend to find fridges, but still want nice cold drinks, so here are our Top 3 Best Products for keeping Drinks Cool.
If you're like me, and you like your drinks to remain cool to the bottom of the can/bottle (it holds both), then this little cooler is the perfect accessories for your travels, or for using at home instead of having to water down your drinks with ice.
It works by using a process of evaporation to cool - you simply soak the cooler in cold water, remove your drink from the fridge and place inside the cooler.
Before the cooler is put in water the desiccated crystals take up very little space, making the cooler flat packed, and lightweight, perfect for popping in luggage or backpacks. When the water eventually evaporates it goes back to its original flat form. Read our review here...
2. Hydro Flask 21oz Standard Mouth
The unique double wall insulation on the Hydro Flask will keep your pre-chilled drinks cold for a whopping 24 hours!
It's BPA free, and has a coloured powder coating that has a slightly textured feel, which makes the grip much easier, and a lot less slippy than a smooth shiny bottle, and it's tough, I know because I've treated it quite abysmally, from chucking it into my gym bag, to bashing it about in the back of 4x4s for over a year now, and apart from a couple of little dinks from where I dropped it on to a concrete floor (or two) it's still going strong.

Even if you don’t own a pair of Redback boots (though you really should) I can’t recommend this wax enough, not only has it given my Redbacks a new lease of life, but I've also treated my 25-year old Zamberlan Mountain Lites to a coating too, and the difference is amazing!Read More
Do you overheat as soon as the sun begins to shine?
Do you have hot flushes?

I explained that I wanted a good, dependable general purpose camp knife, a knife that can easily cut rope, feather branches, slice food and so on. I didn’t want anything fancy or ridiculously expensive either as I have a bad habit of losing things!Read More

In a bid to curb the amount of money I spend on lunches and to lay off the dreaded white bread, I decided that, as often as possible, I would take a proper homemade meal into work, as opposed to a boring cheese butty. The problem to this new approach succeeding is that I don't have access to any kind of heating devise, so it would probably mean a salad, and in the words of my man-hero, Ron Swanson, “Why would I eat the food that my food eats?”…Read More
Now that the weather is finally getting warmer, and we are all thinking about getting away to warmer climes, I thought it would be the perfect time to tell you about this Drinks Cooler that comes from Frio, the same company that creates travel wallets that keeps insulin cool.

We have a lot of knives here at Muddy Towers, not only do they vary in sizes, but sharpness too, and for the main part we’ve been very happy with them all. However, it wasn’t until Damian from Rocknife kindly gave us a sample of his Ceramic kitchen knife did we truly realise what ‘sharpness’ actually was.
As a rule I only write product reviews after a good month or so of testing as that’s how long it normally takes me to get a feel for their foibles, but after only………Read More
