What are /out/'s favorite knots for each purpose:
>Lashing gear to packs
>Doesn't slip under tension, unties easy
>Adjustable and holds up under tension

Pic related is marlinspike hitch, super fast to tie and easy as fuck to undo. Unparalleled for tying down to stakes imo

Jesus Christ, nobody outside the movies actually does this.
Or the occasional person that learned everything they know from Hollywood.

>what is a pack frame
>>
>>1982295
The only acceptable items to have on the outside of your pack are axes, crampons, rope, and hardware. There are already attachment points for these on the pack.

>tfw umbrella can’t go in my pack
But yeah, if you can’t put normal stuff inside of your pack then your pack is too small.

>adjustable and holds up under tension
I don't know what it's called, but it looks like an upside-down 4 when you tie it, picrelated. I used it to tie frogs to bottlerockets when I was a kid
>the slip end went on the bottlerockets
>the frogs got clovehitched lol cux rip

i attached an infatable boat from walmart to my backpack and hiked it out like 10 miles and then aired it up, threw my backpack in it and paddled it out down the river before I hit a downed tree underwater and it poked a hole in the bottom of my boat
>>
Different knots, not that many, I don't remember the names. Bushcraft usa forums lesson section is where I learned them.

fuck you, why does this make sense

I know an fuckton of knots/hitches since my life literally depends on them. Outside of work I half hitch, clove hitch, bowline and alpine butterfly basically everything.

>Lashing gear to packs
If I were to do this I'd probably clove or double half hitch.
>Doesn't slip under tension, unties easy
bowline
>Adjustable and holds up under tension
blake's hitch
