Did you guys ever see the thread on YouTube, I think by Urban Prepper? He built a neat little kit that he actually does carry all around. Sine of the items were floss, Immodium AD, Tylenol. Things we are actually likely to need in the REAL world.
I'd be interested in hearing what you think about the Golok mate, they certainly seem to be getting good reviews.
Just been comparing the specs on them and I can see your dilemma. On balance I think I would have chosen the Golok myself.

I didn't think there was a lot of jungle in Nepal, more, well, mountains?Steinar, you are right. Gurkhas were not known for their Jungle warefare, it was in this part of the world South East Asia the Gurkhas was deployed as elite to fight jungle warefare against the Malayan communist party. That was why they were seens as elite of jungle warefare here, they were deploy in Borneo too: http://www.historicaleye.com/sukarno.htmlThere are probably better known Jungle warefare elite than the Gurkhas though
