ok i mean fat ones! my self included.So i am sure that with an ever growing percentage of the populace being classed as obese that there are a few big chaps like me into bushcraft,now what i was wondering is is there a shop that caters for us? i have a snugpack sleeping bag that has an extention to make it bigger ,but does anyone sell a stronger hamock or a larger compression sack thatll take an extended sleeping bag in a bivi bag,what about a wider kip mat?what about aextra large summer sleeping bag?
do you guys have any gear for the larger chap or have 'pimped' any to work?
