Bushwalking gear and paraphernalia. Electronic gadget topics (inc. GPS, PLB, chargers) belong in the 'Techno Babble' sub-forum.

TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

I think the top bit locks it closed. I still wouldn't trust it, but I imagine it works alright

It's just A$7 for 10, try it out if you are curious. Whether it 'works' or not obviously depends on your specific application. How well it holds a tent fly will obviously depends on how many applied and the load.
Just move it!

We need a dedicated thread for all the random, cheap stuff people find online that might be very useful
