>>1485997> pillowI was always curious of why people carry a pillow, when they surely have some extra clothes to roll and use as a pillow.

>>1486046Assuming you find an inflatable more comfortable it's probably the lightest comfort item there is.
food, water, and shelter for a 4 day hike.
Guess I’ll be the first to post a legitimate reply
>>1486046why would I have extra clothes? jackets and warm clothes might be worn while I sleep. daytime clothes are either drying out or being aired out a night.
>>1487849Not pictured is my 3L camelbak which is inside my backpack and also miscellaneous food I decide to bring depending on the length of the hike. Usually just some trail mix and pop tarts. I sometimes switch the jet boil for a titanium water bottle (which I can boil with) and just make a conventional campfire. I’ve since added an 8W transmitting radio to my loadout too and obviously I remove the pick for non-winter backpacking
>>1487669they are for anything you need a climbing rated locking ´binner for. originally bought them for climbing>>1487731mostly old excel files.>>1487738a friend and i enjoy tinkering with/repairing old VHS cameras or similar, and using them for various projects, havnt quite got the auto eject to work on that camera. fun showing up to event filming with that huge hunk of junk just for laughs
>>1486011>all those reduldent cutting tools
>>1485999Ha, nice one, no bs, no meme gear.. this is someone that actually goes out
>>1488585>heavy as shit>no waterproof elements whatsoever>meme fudd gun LARPing like you're the LL Bean man isn't 'actually going out'.
>>1488558If you're on your own land and like to build your own shelters, that's a reasonable loadout. The extra 10lbs would suck to carry for any distance but it's not bad for building a multiple day camp.
>>1488779>not even carrying a knife>reasonable loadout for buildingaw come on, if you were doing any sort of real ""shelter"" building, as in something that will fully enclose you from the element, retain heat and keep out the weather, what you would bring would be knife, axe, saw, drill, shovel, not god damn dinky little pruning saw, a shitty metal handle hatchet and a fucking macheteonly two tools there that are of any value at all at doing ACTUAL work is the full sized axe and the entrenching tool
>>1486006GET OUT OF HERE STALKER
>>1487849>no gunInto the trash it goes
>>1488803Based on the guy's ALICE pack and general milsurp he's clearly just mucking around in the woods, not doing anything very deliberate. It's not a bugout bag or a long term survival kit. I don't grudge a guy for wanting to play with a saw.
>>1488836Don't bully, guy might just be a felon.
>>1487812>only 2 calculators
>>1487849>Guess I’ll be the first to post a legitimate replyjust blatantly false>>1487820>>1487756>>1487675>>1486134>>1486011>>1486002>>1486000>>1485997are legit
>>1488940Those are stock images.
keep thread goin
>>1485997>your loadoutYou first, faggot.
>another REI data mining thread
>>1490182At least half are, look at the filenames, they're saved them from 4chinz though.
>>1490145Would that even be bad? My safety and freedom isn't impugned by REI knowing I own a particular sleeping mat. It's a signal to them that I have "voted" for a mat with those features so they should be looking to make even better stuff with those features I like.
Always keep your essential gear ( fishing kit, fire kit, some food, etc) on you and don't take it off unless necessaryYou might lose or have your backpack torn off and you don't wanna get caught with nothing but your pocket gear on ya
some of y'all shit I don't even know what it is...are sleeping mats really worth it? I guess I just don't give a fuck. Or am doing it wrong
>>1490347How the fuck would I lose my backpack without noticing and not be able to recover it? That's stupid.
>>1490215It is more like the ATF trying to skim the internet for good money making weapons busts.
>>1490404>How the fuck would I lose my backpack without noticing and not be able to recover it? That's stupid.You should go look that up, not really that rare.
>>1490494I'm acting under the assumption I'm not a retarded nigger. So no. That will never happen to me. I'm being autistic and have tie downs on my important equipment and there's no way I'd ever lose a backpack.
>>1490497So are you gonna have your pack strapped to you the entire fucking trip? No, you're not, you're gonna leave it there, walk off to get water, or take a shit, get wood, etc. During that time, it's not uncommon for people, even people who been doing /out/ shit much longer than you have, have gotten turned around and lost. With your stupid mentality of "itll never happen to me" tends to be the thing that gets you into it. How often has bad shit happen to people, they always say "I never thought that'd happen to me" ? I don't ever planned on being robbed or assaulted, Eric, still carry a fucking gun just in case it does happen.
>>1487820>leaf>carrying pistolb-be careful out there anon
>>1490512Yeah I've been assaulted and robbed before. That's shit I can't control, what I can control is my equipment. I'm not gonna carry a separate packing list on my body for the off chance I lose my pack. Because I won't. Do you carry car tires on your person in case you lose your shoes and need to improvise some new ones?
>>1490145Everybody should just repost my pics and REI would become a much better store.
>>1490544Not even gonna read. You got it set in your mind that you'll be just fine, I can't wait to read in the news when they find your body.
>>1490555I usually only bring one eraser.
>>1490583I don't understand why you think it's a superhuman feat to not lose a backpack. I work in a recon platoon in the army and accountability is a big thing, I don't want to lose personell or equipment. I always check mine and my dudes equipment before we move. It's not black magic, it's common sense.
>>1490445What like take all that guy's Explosive Nano Ordinance?
So jealous! Almost all loadout with guns.
>>1490555REI needs to become an FFL
I left my glock 30s, kleen canteen, and sleeping mat out on accident and am too lazy to unpack again, this is for a 2.5 day loop hike
that's most of it, about 15 lbs base
>>1490955I would stop fucking them over on returns and start buying full priced items if they became an ffl shit I would probably even buy a rei road bike if it wasnt for them being anti 2a dicks
>>1490404>>1490497>>1490605Have you never done river crossings before? Do you do anything but hike on park-maintained trails? Have you never had equipment fail on you?I'm not even that other anon, but you're making some pretty dumb assumptions. Redundancy is common sense, not willful ignorance
>>1490555Going a little light on the fishing poles my dude
>>1490688No, when they raid they will confiscate the entire property and auction it off before you even get your arraignment finished. So, even if you are not guilty, you just lost your land and they got a pocket full of "fuck off" money.
>>1491225Or maybe you're paranoid and dudes don't even need to post their guns in a thread about stoves and sleeping bags.
>>1491236You're abusing that concept and the idea that people can't gearfag on /out/ because of the ATF is asinine. Just don't post your fucking guns if you are afraid.
Racked up and ready to climb
Inb4 some ninny bitches about the weight I'm carrying on MY back

>>1486046Not OP, but I used to roll up my extra clothing to use them as a pillow. I would always wake up with horrible headaches because of that. Haven't had a single headache since I switched to these inflatable pillows.

>>1504318good luck innawods, Hans.
>>1485997So I would imagine this solar panel would be good to have for Hurricane season Yes?I notice it has a little pouch where a medium sized cell phone could fit inside, maybe even one of them Anker battery packs to recharge your phone with.Any of you have one of these?My house gets a shit load of Sun every day when the sky is clear seen that the house would do great for solar panels on the roof too one of the few houses on my block that would be good for solarCan't afford solar for the whole house would be nice but can barely afford the mortgage
>>1499220Honestly, because I like them. If I'm having fun, and not causing harm to anyone, you have no place to judge me. Also I'd rather eat rabbit/squirrel than shitty overpriced backpacker MREs.
>>1504463A 20k mah battery bank can recharge my phone about 5 times, so one charge every other day makes 10 days of battery life, having a solar panel might be a good idea if you use your phone a lot (like as a camera, GPS, or whatever) or if you plan to be out for a really long time
>>1500435gayish faggun also white
>>1504463I have basically the same thing same wattage but by a different brand and I love itI take it out in the boat in case my phone or my little radio die and for week long hunting campsget a 20k battery pack use the panel to fill the pack then charge devices from the pack and your stuff will charge faster because the pack outputs at higher wattage than the panel
>>1496049I have that exact hatchet AND the 30-30. My rifle is a bit older, 1940 vintage. Still shoots like a champ.

>>1505347Moderately essential? Do you wipe your ass with a bandana or something?
>>1505394Leaves niggaI love finding a handful of the softest leaves I can and wiping my ass with them. But I call that moderately difficult because you need to find ones you won't get a rash from. I test for skin sensitivity first by rubbing one of them on a small area of the inside of my nostril. I wait 5 minutes, and if I don't feel anything I use them.

>>1505724>He thinks farmers don't kill off incommensurable numbers of rodents and pests for his prepackaged onions
>>1490352Depends on the climate, I don't use them often when it's warmer out but during the winter time here in Sweden the ground absorbs so much heat that it's 110% necessary to have an underlay so as not to freeze during the night.
>>1486002You seem like a great guy to go camping with
Here is an ultralight loadout.
>>1488836might be a noguns in a nofuns country. I was told that wasp spray works better than mace for bears. Can anyone confirm or debunk this?
>>1490555I like your car plushy. Seems comfy. Give it a hug for me.
>>1487726The fucking sawsall I'm dead.
>>1486134How'd you rate the DD multitarn tarp? I've been using a shite British Army basha from the '90s that weighs a tonne and is about as water-proof as cotton wool, and I'm looking to upgrade. What size is yours and do you rate it?
Got my first career job few months back. Finally I have some light gear. I don't carry my Mossberg 500. Not pictured is my Chinaman knives, Salomon 4d 3 quest boots, and my old gear that I sometimes use interchangeably. Now I just have to go /out/ to camp instead of fishing all the time.
>>1506442Nice choice on the pack anon, I think that's the first fellow flex-capacitor user I've ever seen. I put mine through 350+ miles in the last year in prep for a through-hike this summer. Its great.
Anyone in here have lower back issues? Wondering if anyone who does is able to cope by simply have a light enough loadout.
>>1506442Looking good anon Pro tip, you can ditch all the sawyer straw accessories if you get a smart water bottle with a sport cap, then you have a cheap BPA free water bottle and you can backflush the straw with the cap

Eh decided to buy it, hopefully it will come in useful for hurricane season, I have a Anker PowerCore 20100mAh that Hopefully I can charge and then charge my cell phone all I know is possibly gonna take half the day to charge my Anker pack.
Just starting out and going on first trip tomorrow!
>>1506703Critique you didnt ask for: You have way too many lights, the only cutting tool you need is that openel, way too much cordage Other than that have fun anon, dont feed the skinwalkers
>>1506442What's your tent?
>>1506442Good shit right there. Glad it’s been getting props
Posted this in another gear thread before I saw this one.Please respond. Let me know if you want to see what's in a kit.
>>1506703Have fun mate-
>>1506919Alps Mountaineering lynx 1I've had it for 3 years. Been going great. I've been using a blue tarp instead of the footprint that I have now during that time tho
I see no one brings toilet paper /out/sideneat
>>1506703How was it anon?
>>1506682I should grab one of those. I have some babby panels I still want to mess with. I have a handful of 18650 cells and buck/boost converters too though so if I’m really running low on generator sips, I’ll charge all those bad boys up and recharge the phone from those things.
>>1505819I want to eat her out SO bad!
>>1505424This! I’ve done the nose trick too. Glad to see im not the weirdo to do this.You can also test by placing a leaf in your mouth between your cheek and teeth for a few minutes and waiting for a reaction.
>>1507265Looks legit.What’s the difference between the fire kit and fire growler? Could you post and list those and your first aid kit please?
>>1508873A growler is a type of container used to transport beer since it is better sited to carbonated drinks (may also be insulated). The fire growler is likely something uninsulated that can be placed in the fire to boil its contents, that or its a specific brand of growler.
>>1508873The fire growler is just a klran kanteen growler, and I didn't know what else to call it. It's single walled and 40 Oz capacity. I had the klean kanteen 32 wide mouth, and replaced it with this because I melted 2tops for it.I like to toss it straight on the fire, but don't like ash and debrit in my drink. The growler has a removable rubber gasket, and otherwise it's completely metal. It's not water tight without the gasket, but it more than prevents crap getting in it while it's boiling. Usually I fill it up before my hike, and I boil/filter more when I get to camp. Pic related is the first aid kit. The Grey ball is 4 exam gloves. Then gauze, bandaids, eye drops, advil, liquid skin, neosporin, benadryl, chap stick and mirror. I used to work in the medical field, and helped teach wilderness first aid. Just about anything missing from this small kit can be improvised. Anything worse than that and you're screwed anyways. I'll get a picture of my fire kit tomorrow after work.
>>1508873>>1508885https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MS3M4OW/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_nC9ZCbRZ5VT9P is the link to the growler. Looks like the stainless 40oz isn't currently available without paint. Another picture of mine in Pic related.Fire kit is really basic, just like first aid.Ferro rod - this is for fun/practice. I always use a lighter when I need a fire.2x lighters (I have 1 more with my cook kit)A dozen or so cotton balls.Small 2oz of Vaseline - many uses beyond fire for this20ish feet of twine - but I usually use it for a clothes line or tarp tie downsA piece of fatwood from my last tripAnd a rubber straw from a saywer filter. This is the most used piece of my kit. I camp a lot in the rain, and have never failed to get a fire, and the key is to blow on it relentlessly.
>>1508883Thanks anon! I did not know about this at all. Truly the friendliest board.>>1508885Many thanks friend. You have no idea how entertaining I find it by looking and comparing other peoples kits to my own. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your kit.

I normally carry my shit all in my pack, but I'm going to start carrying some stuff on my belt for obvious reasons. One thing I don't see people mention though is, how do you wear the belt? Do you just put the belt on like normal, threading it through your pouches as well as your pants' belt loops? Isn't that inconvenient if you want to take off your equipment to lay down or something? Do you just wear two belts, with your equipment belt sitting on top?
>>1508871I thought about that too, but was afraid my toung would swell up. I figured if my nose swelled shut I could still breathe.
>>1509044Which belt? The hip belt on your backpack? Or your gear belt?I usually wear a separate gear belt that just slings onto my waist. My normal belt is threaded through he belt loops on my pants like normal
>>1509053A gear belt, yeah. I don't go backpacking, so I don't use a big pack that needs waist straps.So, two belts then? Do you have trouble with it. Coming loose or sliding around?
>>1488771Neither is spending a shit load of cash on meme gear, going in a bush to drink a beer, then whining about not being able to afford a house
>americans carrying guns fucking everywhere for no reason
>>1509466Lmao, the face of jealousy gentleman.
>>1509466is there something wrong with that?Seems like that was a pretty common thing for explorers to have in earlier times until recently in other countries. Plus id rather have that then try and stab an animal.Have fun though. Hopefully a skinwalker wont fuck with you.
>>1487726I prefer to have the blade in my Sawzall reversed. Less tool in the way. Just my preference.
>>1487812Switch those Sawzall blades around, you'll thank me later.
>>1505819>would race mix>and snack
>>1505922Wouldn't be any lighter. What's the point?
>>1506400i believe mine to be the 3x3, its a great tarp, lots of good strong attachment points and can be rolled up really tight to be backed, made of a strong yet light weight material, doesnt have the annoying sound that some tarps have when wind flows across them. having it 3x3 istead of one side shorter or longer is nice, but i think thats personal preference and i personally like the camouflage pattern best tarp ive ever owned, heaps better then my old Terra Nova one
>>1509123get out of here stalker

How do you all deal with water? Not specific filters or anything, but more about storage and transportation.Collapsible bottles seem pretty appealing. I figure I'm gonna be carrying a small mess kit anyway so I can just boil water in that if I need to. A metal bottle seems like it might not be necessary.Beyond that, what size bottle do you use? Do you use a water bladder? Do you have a larger container for gathering water? Do you carry a gravity filter or do you just push the water through your filter by hand?I'm pretty indecisive and looking for opinions.
>>1510516>3.08 MBwarum so dumm deutscher
>>1510527I usually carry about 4 liters for a basic 48 hour kit and have a lifestraw and some water purification tabs if I’m out any longer than that.That being said, I usually keep two 3liter hydration bladders with me and a 1 liter Nalgene bottle. One of the bladders I keep filled and the bottle but if at last minute I realize I may stay out longer than I intended then I will fill the other bladder pre trip, or restock everything once I get to a water source.
>>1510527Camelbak homie>hi my name is Pvt ___ and I'm a heat cas>never get caught lackin
>>1510509Its all about your posture and where the weight is dispersed.
>>1510643So get something with a good waist belt, stand up straight and keep the heaviest items low and close?
r8, gib suggestions. I welcome feedback!
>>1510899Larp/10, you carry too much stuff brah, that being said bring what you want, to each their own >>1495222Pic related is this loadout in a different bag with a few extra items
>>1510860Pretty much, there are some more specific posturing for different parts of your body that Google can answer better than me. I know to keep your shoulders back but not pushing them too hard, arms hanging to your sides loosely, legs positioned with feet straight down from shoulders, needs always bent never locking, position your weight towards the balls of the feet not on the arch or heal, belly out and butt out, and your back isn't supposed to be completely straight. And more, but Google images will show you what it's supposed to look like.
>>1510899Don't need the rifle or whatever is in the larger digital-camo belt carrier or the smaller one that's already on the belt. Why do you have walkie talkies? If you're alone they're useless. Why do you have that extra smaller backpack?7/10 if you can fit that all in the one backpack, otherwise 4
>>1491240nice gun, my guy
>>1510899this is more of a bugout bag than anything
>>1510906Its a start. Thanks for the advice. I'll have to study up more.
>>1510509Stretch everyday with a foam roller and do mobility exercises. Do yoga. Going /out/ is physically demanding and you need to be /fit/ enough to do it. Wearing a brace and redistributing weight are temp fixes for a problem that requires a long term solution. Shit sucks at first, but you can be better for it.>>>/fit/17020302
>>1510527You will want to drink 2-3L everyday you're /out/. Either bring it with you, look at a map and plan a route with a stream going(stream flow changes due to rain, etc.), or suck the teat of a skinwalker.Hot water fucking sucks in the middle of the day. Either have tea bags or purification is the way to go. Purification focuses on the bacteria that will get you sick. The dirt and shit in the river won't be as bad. Bring a cloth if it's too much
>>1488585No hes LARPing hipster gayboy
>>1499776Sounds like you're a weak little pussy since you cant haul a real man's saw.
>>1490352I strongly recommend against sleeping without one in a cold environment
>>1510955I understand how to gather and filter water, m8. I'm asking what your particular system is for accomplishing that.
>>1511072Hammer and awl a 1" hole straight to your kidneys. Gravity feed water to it. You'll be pissing out your ass tasty spring water.
This was my loadout last summer. Since then I've gotten an actual tent and a much smaller packing sleeping bag.The two shelter halves weren't exactly ideal as you can't make a proper tent out of them since they're just two waterproof square sheets.The sleeping bag in the pic doesn't offer all that much warmth for both its weight (2kg) and size, its comfort temp is about 10C.
>>1511078 Neat aesthetics but boy oh boy, is that an absolute unit.
>>1510509You could get a butt pack. Then find a real outdoor forum to learn to what you need to to pack light. Can definately do a week out of a decent 15lb buttpack setup.
>>1510955I usually dig a small sip well next to the body of water. You still need to filter/boil but if you throw a rock on the bottom the water is usually pretty clear and free of sticks and shit. Extends the life of my filter and I dont have to walk around with a wet shemagh all day.
>>1511111Agreed, I over-packed a lot when I was starting out. Now the bulkiest item in my kit is a sleeping bag and/or underquilt. Everything else can fit in a small day bag.
>>1511124Current setup in EDC/GHB Mode (Hence the prybar and other tools in the bottom pouch. HPG Tarahumara. The belt its on is my 'shelter belt' Thats only about 5 lbs. The trash bags in the pocket would be shelter in a GHB scenario, so it wouldn't come along. I like having a shelter belts cause once I'm set up it stays at camp.
>>1511131>shelter beltinteresting, what's in it?
>>1511133A full size tarp, cordage, A hammock, a small bivvy, a spare water filter, more trash bags(to stuff with leaves to sleep on) and an altoids tin fire kit. (A lighter, some strike anywhere matches, and some fatwood)
>>1511136Oh, and aluminum tent stakes
>>1511136I see, what bivvy specifically? Also, what's the bag it's all in?
>>1511140https://www.rei.com/product/813511/sol-emergency-bivyMy go-to is always a hammock, and I can use it as a signal panel if needed. Ground sleeping should be kept as an option though IMO.The butt pack.https://www.amazon.com/SHANGRI-Tactical-Shoulder-Backpack-Deployment/dp/B00ZWOF7E8/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=butt+pack&qid=1557410878&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-9I asked for the tan but they sent me the camo. It's held up well and was my only bag for a long time. I wore it with an h-harness when it was my primary.
>>1511147Thanks anon, you've given me something to chew on.
>>1511072What kind of retarded question is that?
>>1511153>https://www.amazon.com/SHANGRI-Tactical-Shoulder-Backpack-Deployment/dp/B00ZWOF7E8/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=butt+pack&qid=1557410878&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-9I forgot, I also have one of these in there. I load it up with bug repelling foliage if it gets really bad. Not LARP As a SEAL, it just keeps a lot of the bugs out. The one I linked isn't the one I own.
>>1511153No problem. It kind of requires a small pack to work. Even the tarahumara sits on it juuust slightly
>>1507265Gregory baltoro 7529 lbs with everything pictured, including pack. Tarp, hammock and solar kit are optional and it's 25.5lbs without them.Room for clothes, food, water makes it around 35lbs fully loaded. Everything fits in the pack minus sit pad and water bottle, and there's room to spare.
>>1511443Gorgeous. I have company over today but at some point this week I want to picture my kit and exploring gear
>>1485997like a boss
>>1511131I've moved my IFAK and other light but bulky items to my HPG Heavy recon and mounted it on the back. Folds up and out of the way. So much more room for activities, no idea what to fill this things with now.
>>1503969You could buy a marlin lever gun in 30-30 for like $430
>>1512107Great gun that never got the recognition I thought it deserved when I sold em. The versatility of the gun, as both utility and a fun sporting rifle, made it my favorite. The lever action is cool too
>>1512107Lever guns are NZ$1000+ here. For the same price I can get a Howa M1500 scoped package with a barrel threaded ready to fit a suppressor, which looks like it'll be the way I'll go.
>>1509489We'll all thank you later. Fucking beepu
>>1485997Why must these threads turn into total memes
>>1513656half the loadouts on here are absolute memes. You'd think they were camping in war zones and shit
>>1509466i've bumped into bears and tweaker camps on too many occasions. never hurts to be prepared for the worst
>>1491255just to watch him die?
>so many axes and sawsWHYCan't you just pick up wood that's lying on the ground?
