  1. Cotton? I wouldn’t even review that trash. Making it an emergency piece is even worse. Get a wool one for the same price from a surplus

  2. Love the videos, Luke, but I have to point something out. A "toboggan" is a wooden or metal sled with a curved front. What you are describing is a "toque" (pronounced "tOOk" as someone below pointed out). That hat wouldn't make a good toboggan as it wouldn't even cover your butt or slide down a hill. 

    Nice hat, though.

  3. Cotton is the WORST thing you can wear in cold/freezing temps. Cotton retains moisture, loses its insulating value, and promotes hypothermia. COTTON KILLS. A watch cap should be wool, or if that's not available, acrylic. But definitely NOT cotton.

  4. Have you tried their french mess kit?  It is heavy duty aluminum.  Everything I have got from them has been excellent quality

  5. I like the idea of the emergency bag, been stuck in my old car in the winter and boy did it get cold quick.

  6. I always love the regional differences in language in a country as big as ours; Case in point, here in northern New England, a toboggan is a wooden sled rather than a knit hat. Fun stuff!

  7. that is a heavily worn, disgusting looking hat Luke…Have you ever considered doing a review on a Czech mate? LOL

  8.  You lost your Military Surplus Wednesday magic box ? well to bad Luke whit the tuque that you so call tobogan.

    hey says the Canadian Patrice from montreal

  9. Pull it all the way down over your eyes and then bend it all the way around just hight enough so you can see again, this way it wont get in your way on the back of your head xD thats how i wear it

  10. Love watching your videos… Ive watched all your campouts, and can't wait to see next…  Keep up the good work… 

  11. great vid luke, i have a british commando style hat and by the looks of it has been made of the same material so i can confirm like you said its great for all cold weathers keep up the great work you do with the channel. clint uk

  12. I would recommend German army watch cap, its 100% wool, with goretex windstopper membrane, very thick knitted as well, but totally windproof.
