So, my little brother's turning eight on September the 18th. He is really into spies/spy gear etc. and so we're buying him a big bag full spy stuff. The bag is a very simple black rucksack with three pockets including the zip one on the front. So far we have the following as a rough list: -waterproof notebook and cover -compass -cam cream -FAK -torch -paracord -sunglasses (possibly with rear-view mirrors) -recording pen -watch (think James Bond on this one) -and anything else you think of... Hit me with all your ideas for more gear and stuff. My parents aren't too big on getting him a knife/toy gun etc. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. A little learning is a dangerous thing; drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: there shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking largely sobers us again.
