On the “One pot to rule them all” post yesterday “Obvious” posted a comment about a new material called “Sugru”. This is a silicone based substance that can be used to modify or mend all kinds of materials. After moulding it to the desired shape it takes about 24 hours to cure. I can see lots of uses for backpacking, in particular, insulated pot handles. The web site is here. There’s a Daily Telegraph feature on it here.

    Still haven’t tried it though! Saw it mentioned on dansdata and did some digging around. I notice it’s got a shelf life in the packet of 6 months so best to use it before then if you get some.
