what's a good pair of snow proof pants to go over over the baselayer and insulation layer?

I want to get a higher end bivi like the Rab Ridge Raider.
I like that it's 4 seasons, very low profile for multiday, and quick to setup. Also, I would think that something smaller would insulate better.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

Bros can i go camping using only a smersh system. Because it is pretty large and if i get the pkm model it has 4 large molle pouches. So will it work for ultralight hiking for a few day trips?

NotOP here, how does one tell true SSO/SPOSN gear from fake shit? Greyshop was the first site I had seen with Russian web gear on it, but I appreciate the heads up
To be entirely honest I'm not sure if I would try doing this with Russian webgear primarily because its easier and cheaper for me to get US webgear where I'm at, but I am interested in trying this idea of camping using web gear (plus STALKing sounds pretty fun, so I'd want to get some for that at least) cool loadout picture by the way, if you've got any pictures if your current loadout I'd love to see it

Honestly just airshit forums there are plenty of airshitters with autism who spend considerable amount of time getting authentic gear.

By western standards the gear is cheap as shit however so you might as well just go on ebay and buy from the first seller with good reviews.

Wabbit and squirrel are your best and best tasting options. Aim for the head on a wabbit and either head or ribs on a squirrel, since there's basically no meat there to be lost anyway. Keep it one the downlow though if hunting is Illegal, Karen sees you plug a squirrel she will have a screaming fit and call the cops and say you have a gun and then you'll get shot for the crime of ignoring a rule while white.

echoing this. Backcountry is totally different than in-bounds. I feel like you really need to be comfortable skiing black diamond runs inbounds to really be comfortable on what might be a blue-equivalent backcountry run.

That being said, there's plenty of places with low consequence terrain that you can go that are mostly safe.

And be ready to hike. A lot.

I've skied 30+ days in the backcountry this season already and never really ventured into territory where avalanches area a risk. As another anon said, there's tons of low-risk terrain.

This is fun, but the start up can get costly. I'm an electrician in the Seattle area, more and more ppl are doing this.

He set it up wrong, his battery bank blew up.

No a story per-se, but our group of 3 was camping down near racehorse creek, not at the provincial camp site but across the bridge and about 4km in. Woke up to some old guy going through our stuff. Yelled at him and he ran off up the trail going upriver. That was ~5 years ago and haven't gone back.

That’s my answer to every story I have read here. I have a place in the woods 2 hours from Hobema, no natives because you either live in hobema or escape hobema, not live 2 hours from hobema if your native. I have no stories like this.

What are /out/'s thoughts on pic related for extended use? I'm toying with going vagabond for awhile, and a tarp seems like the logical choice.

Heavier and shittier tent. Great for larping as a big bad hobo on reddit but if bugs are a thing I'd rather spend the extra three minutes rolling up a tent so I'm not picking wasps out my dick skin even if I get less cool guy points.
>>
>>1984893
Anyone claiming tarps are just all around better is outing themselves as a west coast fair weather faggot or someone who lives in the desert. The rest of the country doesn’t go through a three-season drought like the east coast and has bugs, sometimes even in the winter.

A tarp is great if you know it’s not going to rain (ie, you’re in California and it’s not November-March). If it could rain any time of the year (the rest of the country Lol), a tent makes more sense.

The same is kind of true about a hammock. They’re great if you know the area you’ll be in. I know I’ll be somewhere in the South, so there’s going to be a place for it. But if I’m riding a random train someone in the West or sleeping on the outskirts of a town then no, maybe not.
