    We all like to hear about a new or old piece of kit that you loved or didn't like at all. I'd be tickled to see 20 new reviews by the end of July. Help a monkey out!!

    Post them here:

    old gear hmm i have a orginal REI sleeping bag i bought well used in 1975 that simply will not die just washed it looks new ok and one last bit of gear in 2005 when i still had all the money i would ever want i spent 4,000$ of a soild wool organic bed was living with my vegan girlfrind at the time its a shepherds dream bed its 10 inchs thick solid wool futon. this bed saved my life for real when i lost my money and had no heat food power and i was only eating 3 meals a month read in my primal diet post i laid in this bed when i lost control of body functions. in a coton to modern bed i would have frozen to death but i was laying on soild wool ten inchs thick in there bed even wet when your sick from scurvy your not going to freeze to death your in a solid wool womb. after 4 years when i had little more better times i called the company told them my story they explaned how i could clean and fix the bed then they sent me the wool to recover the bed by my self. it looks as new as the day i bought it now and has a new soft wool topper that makes it feel like a feather bed if you buy a shepherds dream bed it is well worth the money the smaller ones are cheaper mine was 4 grand cause i bought the king size and the bed frame and every option think more in the 1,500$ range would get you one it will be the last bed you ever need. if you down and out this company will stand buy you take time to talk you thru cleaning so on one of the few companys that did not let me down not realy a company there a college that teachs the old ways of sheep and wool from harvest to manufacture

    it was not guns food preps that saved my life it was that bed if your older and live alone remote maybe scared your get stuck in bed this is the bed for you a standard bed in 6 months with loss of bladder conrtol will fail you start to sag in the center this bed will not do that and will smell better too. if your younger call them have them make you a smaller one thinner and camp size they dont advertise it but they will do it for you
