Ruusteri chicken jerky, 100 g

9.99 USD

Chicken jerky, it's like beef jerky but made of Finnish chicken! A whole lot less fat and more protein than in beef jerky, with a comparably nice taste. If you're looking for the ultimate snack or outdoor food, try this! 280 grams of chicken breast fillets is used to make 100 grams of jerky!

Linen costs a bit these days, unless you invest in army surplus. These old Swiss linen towels are excellent travel towels thanks to their compact size, not to mention the superb quality. Buy a bunch and you have towels for decades.

Linen has a bunch of nice features, like pretty good durability, resistance to bacteria thus smelling less foul than cotton or synthetics, soaks up moisture but dries relatively quick thanks to the porous weave. This 100 x 50 cm rag is the perfect towel to take along when you leave the comforts of home - won't take much room in the pack and still large enough to dry a humanoid size creature. Additionally it works well as a kitchen towel. Naturally the Swiss have included a little hanging loop on the edge.

Normally linen towels of comparable size not made in the Far East cost something like 30 Euro bucks, but army surplus is a different animal altogether. The old fashioned creamy and red striped colour scheme is a definite plus too! We might occasionally get these with some other detailing too, it's the nature of army surplus.

Condition

The towels looked pretty much unissued, but they are old and stored for a long time. Combine this with the white colour and you'll get something that proudly displays any stains gathered over time. We recommend washing before use. This is the tradeoff with army surplus vs new-made stuff.

Pellava pyyhe on hyvä, ellei jopa paras pyyhe minkä tulette hankkimaan.
Mutta muutama sana itse pellavasta:
Pellava vaatemateriaalina on loistava eräillessä: Viileä kuumalla ja lämmin kylmällä, kuivuu nopeasti jne. Viikko UKK-puistossa wanhanajan pellavariihipaita päällä. Väljä leikkaus ja napitukset tekivät sen, että vaikka oli pitkähihainen paita, niin sen kanssa ei tullut kuuma helteelläkään: Hyvä ominaisuus, koska se samalla suojasi hyttys- ja mäkäräarmeijalta. Sen verran pitkä helma, ettei tarvinnut kalsareita. Muutenkin teknisissä ja merinovillaisissa alusvaatteissa vähän hikoaa vaikka olisivatkin lyhyet. Pellavalla tätä ongelmaa on huomattavasti vähemmän, jos ollenkaan. Suosittelen!

Oli erinomainen hankinta vaellusreissulle. Normikokoinen äijä kuivasi tällä itsensä nätisti uimisen jälkeen. Hakkaa froteepyyhkeen 100-0, ja kuivuu paaaljon nopeammin, eikä jää litimäräksi. Paino kuivana 125g.
