I just started working at L.L. Bean and get a fat discount; what are the best outerwear products they make? Are their sleeping bags any good compared to North Face?
>>

Into the trash it goes
>>
>>1916069
Look for the products with name brand components, like gore tex shells. They're often rebranded knock offs and surprisingly solid.
>>
>>1916069
Compare specs rather than brands, Anon. For sleeping bags, the loft/fill power and type of down, baffle construction are important. The denier count of the lining and shell materials second. Find out the specs of the bags at work and compare them to other brands bags with the same/similar details.

I agree. Favorite pants by far. But they don't make 'em like they used to anymore ™. Mine is slowly starting to show tears at the main pocket (it's the only pants that actually fit my favorite notebook size; I use them for fieldwork) and I already removed the doubled up layer at the knees since that was really ripped to pieces, now my knees are single layer and the main side pockets are also really fuzzing up at the entry where I clip my knife or multitool in. WTF? That shit was expensive and I only bought it 15 years ago!

>Worlds most sold /out/ brand,
Prediction: in 10 years they’ll be known for a superb quality to price ratio, and some of their items will be recommended by pretty much everyone. Think about it. They’re family owned but the guy who started the company (and had a passion for making inexpensive camping crap, I guess) died years ago. So the company and it’s name could be easily bought. They have a huge distribution network, probably bigger than any other similar company. There’s a gap in gear quality that lies between Coghlan’s/Ozark Trail and cottage vendor and high end name brands. Coghlan’s is going to step up and fill that gap.

Look at the Costco Double Diamond down throw as an example. There’s literally no widely distributed brand that makes a down quilt designed for camping at that price (the DD is a little short for most adult men). The 32° down puffy from TJ Max is another one. $40 for a packable down puffy, and worth every penny. Coghlan’s would sell a billion of them.

You can just buy milsurp BDU's and you'll have just as much pockets, same material minus the waxing, and for a lot less.

Or, for the same price, you can buy the exact pants these are a rip-off of, Crye AC/G2/G3/WHATEVER THE FUCK THEY ARE NOW combat pants and they'll be made much better, have better stitching, better QC, made in the USA, and very, very aesthetic. Unfortunately however, unless you are an actual operator, nobody is going to think you're cool, everyone who doesn't know these pants will think you are weird and the people who do know the pants will think you are LARPing way too far.

And they don't have the fox. No fox - no deal. Deal with it.

(But seriously, while indeed quite expensive, I have things with way worse price/quality ratio. All my Fjällrave stuff is virtually indestructible and they're easily accessible. Maybe it's different in the USA were every second store appears to be a guns-ammo-army-supply store, but here in Euroland, stores that carry surplus gear are rather rare and if they exist they often tend to be like pic related (and have a bad selection), so just going to one of the dozens of outdoor gear stores is the easier option)

>>1925689
I see Fjällrav all over campuses as a student. They seem to be super popular with Asian exchange students, almost exclusively women. Never seen them in a outdoor/military surplus store.

A decent handheld like the DR-40 is about a hundred bucks but of course you can go cheaper and much more expensive. I usually bring the cheaper one on every proper campout, but I have a much nicer/bigger/more expensive rig with good external mics and a higher quality recorder for when I'm going /out/ specifically to record. The handheld is good for when you're busy going about your business but want to "point and shoot" and record interesting little tidbits. Especially at dusk or dawn when the birds and bugs really get going.

Link is with the good setup of course:

That's really cool anon. I am not sure though if I should buy one because I live about 150 km away from an airport and there are quite a lot of planes going over my head. Corona really is a blessing in that regard but I'm afraid it won't be silent forever

Weird. Where are you? Not many Asians where I'm at, though every thot wears their Kanken backpack, which is the worst thing they offer (though it's built to last). Probably some weird ass trend. When I was in Vancouver a few years ago, every asian was wearing Arcteryx, and with most of them, you just knew that they never ventured further from "civilization" than a 15 minute "hike" to a famous instagram spot. Though I gotta say, there is also a huge Asian population in Vancouver that go /out/ and are just normal at it.

These are unbelievably uncomfortable to play. They're too small to comfortably sit on your lap while you play, so you either need to use a strap or sit like the hunchback of notre dame.

I was once involved in rescuing a hiker, from a popular day trail of all places, who had fallen down a small embankment and ended up with his fixed blade knife buried in his thigh.

Dude probably only fell ~3m/9ft and was otherwise totally unharmed, but he landed wrong and the knife went right through the sheath and into the leg.

So now I stick to folding knives.

I gave it its debut today with a quick afternoon hike in the Cairngorms. Conditions were windy and sleety at elevation on the plateau.
It's really nice and has obviously been well thought out over the 30 odd years they've been about.
I didn't bother pulling my shell over it because i wanted to test out how they claim it works (I didn't have it next to my skin - i had a thin merino tee shirt on). In the driving sleet and rain i stayed warm and didn't feel wet. I was only exposed for about 2 hours in the worst of the weather.
A feature I really liked was the kangaroo pocket that you can put your pack belt through which is also lined with the pile (on the outer side that the belt isn't touching) which is great for putting your hands in while walking.

I buy pants specifically for hiking. There are a so many options it’s impossible to say what you’ll like or what’s the best, but two always come up:

Columbia Silver Ridge are a widely available budget option. The convertible pants are a little long but as shorts ride well above the knee. Bretty good considering they’re always on sale somewhere.

Prana Stretch Zions are the gold standard of pants. Fit well without looking like a sperg. $90 and almost never on sale (they’re $62 at REI right now). Very well built.

Gotta say, for ~$30 the Columbia pants aren’t that bad (the MSRP is like $60). The material is a little thin, so I wouldn’t trust them over a lot of bushwhacking or really rough conditions. Mine have held up well but I stay on trails.

Nothing I can specifically think of, but I suppose if you get some books on film post-production sound or location audio editing you might find some ideas. I use RX, clean up any rumble or infrasonic trash below 20Hz, sometimes a gentle EQ curve if I need to compensate for the microphones sensitivity, the slight muffling effect of windmuffs, or if I want the mics to sound more directional and less omni, then normalize to somewhere between -12 and -6dBƒs

Some of it is science but honestly a lot of it is just art, get it to sound and feel the way it did when you were there and people will like it

You know what happens to wool when it gets wet?
It's heavy.
You're going to be carrying 3kg of water like a chain-mail shirt while hiking, you're going to stay wet and humid after a tiny shower because wool is hard to dry (even thin fleece when compared to other synthetic fabrics).

I take wool sleeping clothes, because they remain hygenic and you may realistically be forced to sleep wet when you cannot dry your clothes- this is where the weight is not an issue and wool is really good.
>>

I have some kuhl pants that have been good so far, material feels nice and stitching is solid. Haven't been through any thorns yet though.
>>
>>1935108
I don't have any /fa/, thick cable knit sweaters like the guy you quoted, but in my experience, it does indeed work quite well when wet and moving. In fact, moving helps quite a bit!
Icebreakter or similar, middleweight merino base layer + softshell and I can stay warm even in freezing rain, as long as I keep moving. Of course that also kinda works with fleece, but to me wool feels nicer and works better.

Shit. Mine is stored since like 1.5 years after using it like 4 times (maybe 20 liters of quite decent spring water filtered), but I didn't bleach it or something. Just flushed and backflushed it with plenty of tap water.

It'll be safe, the only thing is the flow rate gets fucked up depending on what solidifies inside the filter. Tap water sometimes has stuff (calcium) that creates a blockage.
Just blast water through it and if the flow rate is acceptable then all good.

I hate that really great gear like this ends up being brushed off due to its popularity. I always had rubbing issues with every pair of shoes I tried; nothing had a wide enough toe box. And raised heels never made sense to me, and there’s no reason for hiking shoes to tile our feet on a non-ergonomic angle (look it up; it’s basically only done due to tradition). I started using Lone Peaks when the 2.0’s came out (2014, I think).

My main knife is a Casstrom No. 10 Forest Knife, pic related but still use a Morakniv for the scandi grind, it's easier to make firesticks and other wood working bits. The Casstrom is wonderful for everything else, with a convex grind -it's a sharpening nightmare if you're a bit autistic.

You'd be wearing it? Wool breathes extremely well, I have one too, and rain evaporates quickly from it too from your body heat. Obviously wear a poncho if it's really raining, but a bit of rain is okay. Pic related, it's a 'skipper's sweater' in use in Holland and North Germany, thick very tightly knit 100% wool, very windproof. If it's chilly it zips up to halfway your face (or double it down as a turtleneck for extra neck warmth). I always take it with me. Bonus: wool is fire retardant, so it's great around the campfire too if you have the wrong wood.
