Hey gang, PAR-TEH!
Last summer we held the opening party of our new location, Mega Grand Opening. The event was such a success that we decided to pump it up a notch and this summer we will be throwing a party in the form of LekaFest!
The concept is pretty much the same than it was with the opening, the only difference is that there'll be more music, more awesomeness - more everything!
Save the date 17th of August, you don't want to miss this one! More info coming later.
Let the tanks roll!
Do you want a good sleeping bag! When the Austrians design it and the Brits copy it, the results are actually very tasty.

No packsack included, but German army surplus compression sacks are available. These are not only good for sleeping bags, but other packable stuff as well.
