Post /out/ gear everyone should own.
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?
>>1916051>keltyInto the trash it goes
>>1916069Look for the products with name brand components, like gore tex shells. They're often rebranded knock offs and surprisingly solid.
>>1916069Compare 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.
>>1916100Coghlan's>all weather blanket>egg suitcase>lightweight poncho (emergency backup)>candles>head bugnetAll these items are great.
>>1915902I 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! >>1916100KEK. Worlds most sold /out/ brand, I guess. I think I also have a few things by them.
>>1916096In the description on their website:"NOT DORKY"
>>1916107Of you’ve never needed a head bug net consider yourself lucky. Having to stop every 10 minutes to clear the gnats out of my knows and eyes wasn’t fun.
>>1916206Someone stepping on a pile of human shit is funny, but stepping on a pile of human shit that I left there is hilarious.
>>1916202>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.
>>1916107>>1916202>>1916250Wtf is this retarded guerilla marketing campaign
>>1916255They come with me pretty much every time.
>>1916228Best post. I happened to be going through my camping stuff as it's coming up on my favorite time of year to camp and In almost every damned pocket of my pack, I have a lighter. In a couple others, I have a variety of fire starters.
>>1916250>imagine being poorLmao get the tj max puffy coat.

>>1916069>>1916083Can confirm, the Goretex shells and rain jackets are quality stuff.

>>1917295Carhartt is fat fit crap.
>>1916069>work at ll bean>know fuck all about anythingNeat. So I'll never be purchasing anything there again
>>1916534how long can you use this thing?didn't say anywhere in the description
>>1917244>These can't fit my assAre you fucking Kim Kardashian? Fjällraven are cut to fit huge asses, and if your's doesnt fit, just widen them, they're made to be altered.Or maybe you're just fat.
Questionable as to whether this gear (I suppose you could use the tin for a variety of things) but scho ka kola. Delicious chocolate with caffeine that's a great energy and morale boost.If you want some buy in bulk at varusteleka for best deal.

>>1924039You 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.

>>1916051imagine not being a frameless pack chad
>>1925492And 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)
>>1916096What is this
>>1925689I 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.
>>1925768for recording naitcher or anything interesting, unusual, or spoopy. makes for good memories. people these days will take and upload a photo of a fucking moth in their house and have it forever, why not do the same with the soundscape of the palces you visit? especially if you aren't likely to ever be back
>>1925769I like the idea, how much does a decent recorder cost? Do you carry it on every camping trip?
>>1925770A 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:https://youtu.be/Wc0qIUGHVG4
>>1925779That'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
>>1925789>150 km awaythat's far enough - plus it doesn't matter if there are planes, it's not about pristine national geographic shit, it's about an alternative to photos for the scrapbook. planes or no planes, who cares, it a ton of fun to listen back after a couple years
>>1925791Nice, thank you for telling me about this. I will start looking into equipment in the next couple of days and hope I'll be able to try my new hobby as soon as possible
>>1925751Weird. 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.
>>1916091From an early age I could always get these to return. They just make sense to me.
My dad is trying to force me into getting a pair of Merrell's because winter is coming and he loves some pair he had for ages but I reckon they all look fuckin goofy as, what's the go with these shoes? (desu majority of outdoor footwear is fucking cringe as) Are they actually worth the ass kicking I feel like giving myself if I wore them? inb4 "what do you mean anon? I love how they look" I don't wear /out/ gear or clothing, me go shirtless in short shorts for sports so I'm a bit off put by all the like nerdy hunterbro normie look to the majority of shoes/boots out there (not here from /fa/ either by any means, I just don't dig the dead eyed prairie dude look and am struggling to convince myself to let him buy me a pair already..
>>1926177Just get some Timberlands and a couple pairs of really good socks. Been tromping all over creation in pic related and never had any problems. Also still pretty waterproof
>>1926182are timberlands good/worth? I always loved the classic timbs but I legit told my parents today while shopping that timberlands got meme'd out of existence for me like I reckon cunts would just give me shit or something. Probably just me giving myself shit if I'm honest but I got no idea if they're any good or just popular cause of NYC STREETWEAR and rappers kinda shit
>>1926188jesus man you need to chill the fuck out, and I don't know what you mean about Timberlands being meme'd out of existence all i know is they're quality boots and comfortable. Once they break in they're great. They aren't a specifically designed hiking boot so they'll be heavier than your Merrells and whatever else, but they're a solid everything boot, snow, work, bushwalks and camping, etc
love me sum /edc/ breds - always the most gullible and easily manipulated people in them - Dumber than a room full of Trumptards.
>>1926193Do you not frequent society or social media whatsoever? Only time I ever seen someone wearing timbs was some wigger or soft ass immigrant bloke wearing them with a 900 dollar jacket n jumper on. Maybe I'm just far out of touch with north america nowadays, australia was fucked.
>>1925698looks like some overpriced thing for digging a shitting hole
>>1926200you need to stop caring about stupid shit like this
>>1926188timberland white ledges are good, i've put mine through conservation corps, bike tours, hiking and ranch work and they've held up for 3 years now. just gotta care for the leather

>>1926177>goofy as>cringe asFuck off, zoomer.
>>1924771The nice thing about folders is that you can keep them in your pocket at all times. I'd rather not go fishing with a huge fixed blade attached to my belt
>>1926340These 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.Honestly a 1/2 or 3/4 size guitar isn't much more expensive and plays about 50 times more comfortably.
>>1926378...and puts a huge limitation on what you can play due to having like 15 frets
>>1926378I don't know, man, it sounds pretty close to my D28
>>1926340>>1926378I've got to agree, You need a strap or one of those dorky looking lap stabilizer addons, and it's so neck-heavy you can't even use the strap lock at the top of the body, you just have to tie it around the headstockMine sounded pretty cool and tinny like a banjo though
>>1926732>You need a strapa shoelace?
I've fallen for the Buffalo shirt meme because of Ray Mears. I've not used it yet but I'll be going /out/ to debut it this coming week (hopefully get some testing conditions).
>>1926777These look nice, tell us how it is once you try it out
>>1915902For.. you know..
>>1924771I 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.
>>1926777Nice wide body twin engine. >I've not used it yet but I'll be going /out/ to debut it this coming week (hopefully get some testing conditions).Same here, though with a Klättermusen order. Assuming no changes in lockdown rules, I’ll be above tree line on Friday (just when the weather is forecasted to turn), so I’ll hopefully find out soon.
>>1917672Do they still put crack in the chocolate?
>>1926381You playing megadeth solos on your acoustic innawoods? What are you doing above like the 12th fret for campfire shit?
>>1927241Make the hike even if the rules change. Fuck em, you have a right to wander.
>>1925779Nice setup. I'm working on my recordings as well. The part that I'm "stuck" at is the processing. Do you have any good recommended books or videos on field recording processing with Audition or the like?
>>1927397My employer wouldn’t be too happy if i break the rules on work time. Plus, i won’t get a car anyways. And can’t do much in my free time, because of a newborn. Sage, because blogpost.

>>1927164>Treebeard went a little too rough last time
>>1927167Why are you folding perfectly good knives?
>>1927167o god that's terrifying to be honest
I want to suck a big fat uncut cock in the forest
>>1926188You go shopping with your parents?
>>1925768I use mine to record ghosts
>>1925791Do you remember sounds after listening to them years later? Like do you get transported back to that day?
>>1926777>>1926784I 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.
>>1915902Really good for fishing and staying under the sun for many hours.
Altra lone peaks. I never tried trail runners till I was 30 years old, these are probably the best thing for anything other than super heavy long rucks.
Any headtorch recommendations?

>>1930273You’re too cool to be seen in public with your parents?
Really rookie question but what pants do you guys wear as your essential out? Sweatpants don’t work and jeans suck. Do you actually buy shit from like Patagonia and REI?
>>1934116I like canvas pants, otherwise get some kind of hard wearing tech pants
>>1934116I 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.
>>1926193The Timberlands brand is popular with rappers and pop music stars. At least it was 10-15 years ago. I think that's what he's talking about.
>>1915902>$3>Weighs nothing>Works amazing and keeps smoke out of your eyes>Neverending blowjob jokesBought it as a joke, but this thing is amazing
>>1934116Canvas. NZ company called cactus outdoor make good quality ones, but they're expensive because they're made in nz by nzers with decent materials. Only got one pair cos can't afford to be buying more..
>>1934116I bought some vintage woolrich wool hunting pants for last season that have held up really well. Got them for like 140 off eBay. They’re super warm and retain heat even when soaked. They’re probably hard to find now, makes me feel guilty actually using them.
>>1934262Gay. Thought it was a telescopic magnet.
>>1934116>Really rookie question but what pants do you guys wear as your essential out?Well, duh:>>1915902
>>1916064most likely to never be usedsecond most likely to be lost>>1916228>>1916534This>>1924771That's a tacticool POS anon.For /out/ use you want a shorter blade, a rounder point, a straight spine and I'd argue a brass guard.>>1934069are these really all they have cracked up to be?I've still got an old school foam roll
>>1927455Nothing 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 -6dBƒsSome 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
Nothing like a nice cozy wool sweater on a 3 day trip in the WA wilderness. Fall-early spring it’s a godsend at night/on wet days

>>1926200And there are also plenty of assholes driving massive-wheeled Jeeps in the city, despite never going anywhere close offroad. Just idiots being idiots, doing it for the style. Ignore 'em.
>>1934593>Wool>Nice when it's wetMaybe when you sit in a cabin and trying to wait it out. Otherwise, you're too hard on larping
>>1917918ill have to try distilled vinegar, i used bleach once as per the instructions and it took hours upon hours of filtering fresh water through it to get rid of the bleach taste. never again
The most essential of essential /out/ gear
>>1935108ThisYou 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.
>>1934116I 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.
>>1935108I 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.
>>1917918>>1935201Shit. 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.Will it still be safe and work?
>>1927167thats such a specific scenario that youre pretty much cucking yourself over nothing
what's the meme with Moleskin pants?
>>1935338what is that pink thing? some sort of fishing lure or apparatus?
>>1935478It'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.
>>1935852It is pink, alluring, and smells of fish, but it is not a lure for fish.

>>1938094looks like a diamond dust knife sharpener, they're pretty good.
>>1921913He's right, you are a fucking moron. Kelty external frame packs are the best external frame packs.
>>1934116I wear Judo trousers, they're like denim but thicker than normal jeans; but spacious and baggy and also stiff enough to be rolled up into shorts. They don't have pockets though so I wear a couple of small chalk bags to have things in I want to hand and to attach things to as one would a belt.
>>1917672>PowerschokoladeneckenHey nice language... NOT!
>>1939175I've been a packfitter for four years and external frame packs are memeshit. The only real use for them nowadays is for hut workers hauling weird bulky shit or backcountry hunting. For outdoor recreational purposes you're better served with a modern internal frame pack.

Now I carry a leatherman skeleton and a glock bayo. I cant see justifing a knife that heavy and somewhat fragile tipped for backpacking. I don't hunt.
>>1925246I have been in more than a few industrial food processing plants. You might be surprised how some of it is just like cooking at home but bigger. I asked to see a recipe for 5000lbs of cookie dough. Instead of using a pinch or cream of tartar or a tiny bit of lemon juice, it is a quart or so of food grade ammonia. Now whenever I have a vanilla sandwich cookie I swear I can taste it.
>>1925754I keep a recording of a wild turkey and play it inna woods, hear pissed off turkey calling back.
>>1926340Have one. The neck is just like my full size. Like it for travel but can't see myself backpacking it.
>>1930271You'll never pass.
>>1934102Nice try, but only people who actually hike know why this is a good idea.
>>1932031I 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).
>>1938618holy shit i had this exact knife when i was a kid! oh god the nostalgia...
>>1939080>used by almost every hunter for 60 yearsI know this will be hard for to you realize, but yes, it is a quintessential piece of hunting gear. Now go back to your instant ramen openers.>>1943059samefag
>>1927164I can't keep a boner with condoms
>>1923874anon, this is a shelf from a storehe didn't say to grab everything
>>1923155>225 DOLLARS FOR A PAIR OF PANTS WHAT THE FUCKDo you normally shop at walmart...?
>>1943057Yeah that's a knife.
>>1934262This is hands down the best dollar to weight/value/packability outdoor item I've ever bought. I thought this would be total shit but it's incredible.
>>1916069get a Thermos
>>1917672does it come with toilet paper?
>>1943736No, a quality pair of pants for me is like 100 bucks. I'm pretty young though and don't make a ton of money which may inform my perspective a bit but 225 dollars for a pair of pants just sounds absurd.
>>1916100Nobody will ever need any coghlans anything.it’s all crap. There is a better option than anything of that brand. Only the biggest fools buy it but mostly it just collects dust.
>>1944077there's a lot of great stuff in their range, just nothing good that's heavy duty or survival tier.
>>1926197Trumptards? Proud of voting for corrupt pedo senility and the whore? Sure you are.
>>1925689Amerifag here.I miss the good old days of military surplus stores like the one from the Simpsons. They have kind of died out though in the states and the ones who are still in business mostly sell cheap chinese knock off shit or LARPing uniforms for kink/BDSM shit.
>>1927167Carry parallel to the belt in the flat of your back. It's not rocket surgery.
>>1927265Are you not? Campfire Megadeth is best Megadeth and best campfire.
>>1934116I buy 5.11 tacticool stretchy jeans when I find 'em on sale. They hold up fairly well, but even if they don't I only paid 35 bucks for 'em. In cold weather throw a pair of compression pants under, maybe long johns as well if it's super cold.
>>1944101Thankyou Anon, I have been waiting for this image. Reminds me I need to get a new one, large size of course.
>>1938094I thought it might be a match striker like you get on the side of the box. Is that what it is?
>>1944867It's a DMT diamond sharpener.I prefer the two-sided ones that fold open like a butterfly knife.
>>1934593Were you backpacking or car camping? Because I can't imagine wanting to carry a heavy wool sweater with me backpacking, especially if it got wet...
>>1944802they're still around just mostly in small towns not in the big cities
>>1920944My 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.
>>1945739You'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.
>>1916100an egg suitcase is almost impossible to find in Europe, I would pay good money for one. Now I stuff eggs with toilet paper in a tin. Although it does insulate in winter..
>>1938618I dislike kydex, it feels cheap on my equipment. I have leather sheaths for my knife and for my axe.
>>1938963very nice, anon
>>1934116Invest in a good pair of Fjallraven pants and wax em. You'll never look back.
>>1934130I have a Bars Gorka 4 for longer camps, absolutely the most comfortable wear for working, especially the pants with the built in suspender design and foot loops.
>>1938618I carry a Glock knife on hikes and hunts, I think I'd honestly trust the plastic sheath more than kydex just because of the retention method. You'd have to snap the entire crossguard off to force the blade through the bottom.
canvas gaiters if you do off track or snow stuff
>>1947309Aren't gorkas made of cotton?
>>1947309Overpriced larp cotton
>weighs 1 pound>american company>useful in so many waysya bros, call me a larp but when I do remote hikes I always take this badboy
>>1947536Also >cost only 50 dollars
>>1947369>>1947372It's a very rough cotton blend I think. Never really had an issue with it. Mind you, I haven't really hiked in them, just at camp at longer camp. I don't think it's a larp, most basic equipment has a link to some army somewhere. This is like my comfy track suit innawoods for late summer/autumn with windy conditions at worst.
>>1947540I mostly use a woodsman axe, not full length, in between yours and full length. I do carry a saw too, my axe really is for getting the bigger trees. I looked at those small axes but not sure what the use case would be.
>>1947602thing about saws is sharpening serrated edges in pain in the ass. that or I just don't know how to.The small axes are fine in my expeirence. mostly because when i'm /out/ i'm just cutting small birch trees for fire. not like i'm chopping redwood or something.Just a few swings, bend tree, two or three more swings.
>>1947536I've always found the metal haft axes to just be uncomfortable to use, and they have no option to put on a new handle if they'd ever break or if your needs/preferences end.
>>1947291>ponchoConfirmed for flatlander.
>>1947536>>1947540That looks exactly like an estwing, even the handle.
>>1938963Cornell and Deihl Pilled. I've taken to bringing a cheap briar or cob for hikes as i've broken too many expensive pipes for my liking innawoods. Cobs easy to dry too.
>>1944904>DMT Diamond sharpener
>>1942984I finished masturbating before I realised it was a guy, fellas am I gay now?
