If versatility is desired, look no further than some of the different types of duct type.

Most of their newer kits use lower quality components than they used to. One example is the sparker wheel- instead of the excellent old Spark-Lite most of the newer kits user a larger, gimmicky looking sparker that's not as well made nor as robust as the old one. Much of their stuff seems to be made to a lower standard/price point. Hopefully this doesn't spread to their HeatSheets blankets! They're one of the few reliably high quality "space" blankets on the market.

I had noted the same; while they continued to produce some kits that contained some of the same items, the durability was not there. One kit was stored in a little fabric and plastic container, and the plastic yellowed and split!

I guess I did well in stocking up on PSPs all those years ago; they are still going strong!
