Hungry? SIGG Alu box Review

viagra side effects fatigue Given my ridiculous hobby and my unwillingness to buy food from the staff cafe,I spend rather a lot of time carrying my lunch around with me. Despite owning a myriad of outdoor gear I’d never purchased a specialist lunch box. Sure I’d seen them reviewed in magazines but somehow there was always something else I found to spend my cash on. Having now spent a few months using the SIGG Maxi Metallic Alu I can firmly say that I wish i’d owned one years ago!

SIGG were kind enough to send me a neoprene pouch for the bottle – as you can see it fits snugly around it. I found that when in temperatures around 0 degrees, the bottle, because it’s metal, became very cold and difficult to hold when not wearing gloves. The pouch enabled me to use the bottle without gloves and is a good addition to your kit if you think you may be taking the bottle somewhere cold.

The next plus point came when I took the cadets to a climbing wall for the day. I often find that when instructing I don’t drink enough to stay hydrated – it’s thirsty work making sure that the cadets are safe and having fun! Initially I thought that the clip on the neoprene pouch would attach to my climbing harness but I found that the clip wasn’t wide enough. A quick rummage in my kit bag later and my bottle was attached to my harness via a karabiner through the hole in the lid of the bottle. Having the bottle to hand meant that I could keep a watchful eye on the cadets and still have a drink, bonus!







The bottle is made from a single piece of Aluminium and has an EcoCare Liner, all rather technical but basically ensures a fresh, clean taste with no metallic after-taste. No matter what drink I put inside the SIGG bottle, it did indeed taste clean with no metallic nasty-ness – I tried milk (for coffee while at cadets), Ribena, water and fizzy pop. The fizzy pop was an interesting one, the SIGG website said it was fine to use the bottle for fizzy drinks so  I gave it a whirl. Carrying a can of grape soda isn’t really a good idea while in uniform but disguising it in a smart, black SIGG water bottle seemed like a good way to smuggle it in. And it worked reasonably well. The drink was still fizzy for about three hours and the bottle fitted perfectly in my combat jacket pocket.


 A perfect fit!





Whilst I found the bottle to be an excellent addition to my kit I was unable to use it in ‘the field’. Disappointingly it didn’t fit in my webbing and in all honesty when it comes to doing hardcore Army things with guns, I will stick to the issue water bottle. But as a bottle to take climbing, to the office, on the hills and to stuff in my daysack when doing less intense cadet things – it’s a definite win.

A new take on the foam roller

Being injured is everyone’s worst nightmare and sadly, I consider myself to be something of an expert on the matter. Many of my injuries stem from the fact that I over pronate, more so on the left foot than the right. This seemingly small problem has led to hours and hours of physio and years of rehab/resting/recovering, I was just glad I had private healthcare (I no longer have healthcare, I claimed on it several times and couldn’t afford the renewal price). To cut a long story short I suffer from ITB syndrome and  adverse neural tension. It took 18 months of stretching, gait analysis, expensive trainers and gradually building up the exercise to get myself to being able to run for over an hour at a time.

One of the things that I found crucial to my rehab and recovery was a foam roller. I bought it from an online physio store and it was quite possibly the best £20 I’ve ever spent. I would roll the outside of my left thigh on it starting at the outside of the knee and moving gradually up to the hip, maintaining the pressure at certain ‘sore’ spots. This is a painful process but I’ve learnt that many things in rehab are painful: the worst pain causes me not to scream and shout but to go white and feel sick. My roller was brilliant but it has lost it’s shape in time and the ones in the gym see much use and just don’t quite cut it. So when buying some new running shoes the other day I came across a new type of foam roller: my eyes lit up, I fondled it, I caressed it, I simply had to have it even at the princely sum of £44.99. May I introduce you to The Grid.

It’s basically a tough, hollow plastic tube covered in EVA foam – it’s light, about the length of my forearm and has different types of bumps in the foam. The marketing says that some of the bumps feel like the palms of hands, some like thumbs and others like fingers. I’m not too sure about that, to me every bit of it just hurt. And boy did it hurt, more than my old roller – much, much more. It is sildenafil zentiva 100 mg kautabletten  genuinely the most effective foam roller I have ever used and I shall be scheduling in more intimate session with The Grid after every run.

Regular use of The Grid should help to keep my ITB from causing me any problems during my training for a half marathon. I’d highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from ITB problems.
