Being honest is being nice. OP didn't ask for a participation trophy, he asked for a rating and he deserved what came next. He might even have gotten a good lesson out of it, like don't go wasting your money on the cheapest gear because you'll end up spending it twice again.
Being disingenuous on the other hand isn't nice, it's condescending, rude, pretentious and most of all, it does nobody any favours. Stop being such a consensual cunt, nobody likes it
>>
>>1505589
The blunt honesty is the one redeeming factor this place has, to be honest.
>>
>>1505589

Being honest, and purposely hateful because you're miserable and want everyone else to be miserable, are totally different. That said, I agree no one should expect 4chan retards to be nice, esspecially during the summer or at night, that's when the neets and summerfags come out.

Shelter: good to go.

Water filtration: Get two platypus bags so you can set up a nice gravity bag setup with your Sawyer mini and if you add a charcoal filter like this guy did:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnSdvxQgfB0

It'll improve the taste and remove chemicals and pesticides in the water, something the sawyer won't do.

Knoife: A bit on the small side, maybe a SAK will be ok for a few more tools, but I prefer a bigger knife.

Cook kit: NOICE. Maybe add a small hobo stove that will nest with what you've got for backup/small campfire.

Orange stuff: at least it'll be easy to find your stuff if you drop it.

That is all excellent gear to begin /out/ with, OP. As you actually use it, you will learn its strengths and weaknesses first hand, and evolve your "need knowledge". What do you think is still missing from your initial kit? Do you have a pack for it? I would suggest perhaps taking a look at Osprey for that. Not only are they great packs, but they have a lifetime guarantee. Anyway, good job so far, OP, you've made some excellent choices for the process of experimenting, experiencing, and learning, and the mere fact that you're making it happen at all is very praise worthy. May your /out/ings be blessed.

Hey guys OP checking back in
I got all this stuff because my first out. I got caught in a random hail storm on a mountain. Got lost. Got cold. Got wet. I only had a bottle of water and gym shorts and wet sneakers. I dont want to be in that situation again. So I got a compass and appropriate clothing....then I kinda went off my rocker. Might not be the best or approve gear but better than nothing.

I'll be hiking the Mesa Verde in a few days. Thread with pics to follow!

I was thinking more boots made for cold weather. What you're referring to is for very heavy snow fall. Judging from OPs posts, he's probably in USA, and the only state that you would need these in is Alaska, and OP is definitely not in Alaska because life there is basically being /out/ 24/7.
>>
>>1506082
Snowshoes are not shoes made for cold weather, they are shoes made for walking on snow. "Snowshoes: a flat device resembling a racket, which is attached to the sole of a boot and used for walking on snow". See? It even has a dictionary definition.

Also, any state west of the Missipi and north of the Mason-Dixon line is going to require snowshoes for wintertime travel in certain areas. Most of the continental US gets heavy snow. For strike 3 I've attached an image of downtown Anchorage, which is in Alaska.
>>
>>1505281
Good choice on the cook kit anon! I have used that same pot for hundreds of miles, it's really great. I can fit my stove, gas canister, and lighter all inside the pot- and the bag it comes with works good as a pot scrubber. Also, the sawyer is REALLY handy. I started out with a pump, which broke after less than 50 uses, and made the switch to the squeeze- haven't looked back since.

Sauce on the knife?
>>
>>1506112
And in other parts of the world where these are irrelevant, "snow shoes" has a different meaning, that's how English works.

That's only if you work year around and keep them in your trunk "just in case". Otherwise you're wrong.

I don't care what Anchorage looks like from airview, that's irrelevant to the conversation, most of the jobs there are still /out/ jobs.

If you wanted to be a dick about stupid shit, why not reply to some /b/ post?

Fire, water, shelter, looks good! Peak aesthetic too, with all that matching orange. I feel like you did a good job picking this gear, you don't deserve half the hate in this thread. You picked a handful of useful items and didn't go overboard on buying gear. So what if you didn't buy an "Official /out/ Endorsed" brand hatchet? You're not homesteading.

First aid kit? Maybe a bottle or bladder so you can carry/store more potable water? Small flashlight? Have a good trip, looking forward to the thread!

Millions of people fell for a meme. I've had to use them when they came out (dad forced them upon us as kids). They suck terribly. They're too small to stir in a pot, the spoon is too wide and shallow, the serration on the fork side can't be used to cut anything except the corner of your lips. The fork itself is unpleasant to use due to that and it's pretty blunt, even those cheap tiny fries/chips picks work better.

>>1505861
All you need on a trip is a spoon and a good knife. If you need a fork, you're doing it wrong. Prepare the meal to be in bite-sized chunks and all you need is a spoon (or your fingers). Or go full retard and use your throwel as a spoon. Even more weight savings.

If you're trying to go UL and be more simplistic/minimalistic, look into asian culture/cuisine. All you need to eat asian food are chopsticks and a spoon, everything is prepared bite-sized. Their eating culture is a lot more flexible, simplistic and cheap. I've used chopsticks on a few trips as well, but they came in handier in non-food situations, so I ditched the chopsticks as they weren't fulfilling their original purpose.
>>
>>1506126
IM being a dick? You were pestering OP about how he didn't have an excuse to wait for the weather to clear up when you clearly didn't even have an understanding of what it means to go /out/ in the snow to begin with.

I will admit my response was a bit aggro but its a bit irritating when someone is wrong, and instead of just admitting they were mistaken, they continue to dig themselves deeper and deeper- especially when they are dishing out unsolicited advice to strangers on a cantonese tree-climbing forum.

Pic related is my loadout. It might look like a lot, and it is, but I always go with 2 or 3 people, so some of my gear is for group use. I'm also 6'3", so my tent/sleeping pad/bag are all the long versions, which are also heavier and bulkier.

Here's the contents:
8 assorted band aids,
small roll of gauze,
mirror,
eye drops,
advil,
Liquid skin,
Chapstick,
Neosporin,
Benadryl,
4 exam gloves

I was an emt for 5 years, and have been backpacking much logger. I've also Co hosted wilderness first aid classes.

This kit mixed with other things from my pack like bandanas and duct tape can cover just about anything youre going to deal with. Anon who said sticks for splints or even crutches is right.

Probably the most important part of my kit is the mirror and eye drops. If you get an eye wound, you're more screwed than anything non fatal. If you don't have a way to see your face, how can you treat it?

My first knife was green handled, looked cool. Set it down and went to the bathroom, came back it's gone. Currently there's a squirrel armed with that knife somewhere out.

Makes me think about my medical kit.

In my daily commute, I typically carry a proper IFAK with a tourniquet, chest seals, the whole nine yards. Doesn't take up that much space (in fact it's typically strapped to the side of my backpack), and it fits the threat model of commuting through society. It covers the worst-case scenario of a stabbing or shooting.

But, not only is it inconvenient to move that over to my outdoors/hiking bag (i guess I could just build a second one, but whatever), it's also a bit bulky for that purpose since I have more gear to carry. Now, thinking about it, I suppose I don't really need much trauma equipment. After all a tourniquet for example isn't going to do much good out in the woods where no one is coming to save you. And, barring some ridiculous scenario where you fall off a ledge onto a very sharp stick, I can't really think of a scenario where I'd require trauma equipment. Maybe a mistake with some tools? But if you're practicing proper safety that shouldnt be a problem? Maybe a hunting accident? But I suppose if I were out hunting I would have a different loadout anyway.

Thoughts?

I would take White bread hiking if that's all I could buy at the local convenience store, desu. Packaged White bread is some of the cheapest food you can buy, unless it's some faggy organic shit.

I used to lug around a big, fairly well equipped medical kit. I had israeli bandages, tourniquets, and even fucking morphine in there.

However, shit tends to get heavy over time, so I took a look at the most common /ou/ injuries and built my medical kit around that instead.

As the most common /ou/ injuries include burns, cuts, bites and stings, I only carry some large band-aids, one israeli bandage, one smaller bandage, steri-strips and a small container of this creamy shit I can't remember the name of, which works well for any skin ailment you may have.

I had the exact same school of thought.

I used to bring my trauma kit with me, which now lives in my gun bag, where it belongs.

I just spent the extra $20 to make my smaller, camping kit, with only the essentials.

After 7 years backpacking miles from help, I've only ever used the advil. I'm not one to use a band aid in my daily life, and it's no different for me in the woods.

Pic related is my trauma kit. Apologies for just dumping it. As you can see, it's very much overkill for a backpacking trip.

Snugpak has some good colors at a decent price, but they have the logo on them at the bottom, so you'll always see it.

There's 5 of them in this picture, the three at the top/middle, and the 2 right below them
>>1507231


Otherwise, search for dry bags on Amazon, look for your colors, read reviews, and get out in nature!

Maybe I'm crazy but I only carry a tiny travel bottle with some iodine. The assumption is basically that the only thing I can try to treat on the spot is the potential for infection. But maybe even that's not needed... pine pitch would work if I wanted to go full bear grylls.

You ever carry superglue or would it even be useful for anything more than superficial cuts?

About the eyes, besides using water to flush out debris and bandage IDK that there's much more I could do for myself without a mirror, though I have one on my compass, though anything more involved than that is beyond my skill level. I'd just try to do what I can without making it worse.
>>
>>1509201
I Cary liquid skin, which is superglue with anti-bacterial properties, and it also doesnt sting like hell on a cut.

The cornea is the fastest healing tissue in the entire body, so there's not much you do for an eye injury other than keep it flushed, and rest.

If you somehow end up with an empaled eye, the usual treatment is to leave the object in place, secure it with a headwrap, and cover the good eye as well. As you move your non injured eye to look around, you're going to move your I jured eye as a reaction even if you don't try to. This can cause further Injury to the impaled eye.

I'm that scenario, I might just try and remove the object, and self extract if I was in the woods, and drive myself to the hospital. Rescue isn't glamorous and will likely consist of poorly trained volunteers who just walk with you out of the woods.

I always keep a pretty stocked med kit. Nothing for GSWs but for treating sprains, punctures etc. Came in handy once when on the first day of a 3 day hike in the middle of Nevada I impaled my leg on a baby joshua tree.

I think im the opposite. my day to day kit is very minimal and simple, but I have a pretty large one that I take camping. I camp solo and do caving/canyoneering though so it makes sense for me to have a bigger than normal pack.

I have used the superglue trick many of times and I like it better than stiches. The trick is to pinch the skin together and glue at the skin on the very edges of the cut, and never IN the cut.
>>
>>1512151
Cont.

The only problem I had with superglue is that it tends to leave a gnarly scar. Pic related is when I was out on a week trip and cut my bicep during a climb. One of my Prusik cords snapped and the rope whipped out hard and left a pretty deep gash. I was lucky it didn’t hit the brachial artery or any major tendons so I patched it up and continued my trip.

You pack light for performance, if you're a fat fuck hiking 5 miles then it makes no fucking sense whatsoever to be concerned with weight.

The absolute state of /out/
>>
>>1512635
Are you listening to yourself?
A heavy backpack will have the same effect on a fatass, as it will on a skinny person. If anything, fat people should be more concerned with the weight of their equipment because of their extra body weight.
>>
>>1512640
Carrying a heavier pack requires more effort therefore helping fatsos to lose weight faster.
>>
>>1512643
They'll also get exhausted way faster, which really serves no purpose when /out/.

Sounds like fun.
Make sure you pass the consumer stage and get your equipment worn in and seasoned, then you find out what you really like in the great outdoors after you stop worrying about gear.
That looks functional and simple, it's fun to try to do different things with minimal tools, so don't buy too many too fast.
Welcome.

What are you talking about I find that dry pine needles make the best stovetop. The pan wobbling around and slipping to the side tends to scramble eggs to a consistency not achievable with plug-in appliances.

You should also spatter grease all over all of your gear plus your bare thighs, keeps the mosquitoes away.
