>>696801 What makes a good outdoor coat? Not what you're looking for.
Most flexible system is LAYERED system. What that means is your outer shell, the waterproof layer, to be most versatile, should not be insulated.
Equally, knee length introduces unnecessary weight. IMO better to combine a jacket with a pair of waterproof pants when necessary. You're not an /out/ version of Blade. That thing looks like a barbour waxed coat probably weighs 3kg dry and 4kg wet.

Do you guys work in /out/ fields? Or do you just enjoy the recreational bit every once in a while? Me personally, I work in reindeer husbandry in Norway and I love it more than anything in the world, it takes me /out/ everyday (almost) and it's real, hardwork. Would you guys want an /out/ job?
>>696225 Oh, well my family has always been in reindeer husbandry so I just inherited my own reindeer. I suppose you can ask the smaller "siidaer" if you can help, many "siidas" need help around the year
I figure this is a decent idea for a thread. Post pics/describe items you've shelled out a few bucks for that you later regretted once getting out in the wilderness.
pic related: I bought this combo axe/saw and got a shitty axe and a shitty saw. In hindsight, I should have bought a fiskars or a nice wooden handle axe. It took me so much longer to chop wood with this compared to when I borrowed by buddy's fiscars axe (orange handle, composite grip)
I'm trying to put together a list of stuff i think might come in handy if i am to end of homeless, My situation is looking more and more uncertain everyday as i am unable to find a job and my state is booting me off the welfare so i'm trying to get prepared if i end up homeless.
I know a bit about survival and i watch a lot of survival shows to pretty much have the basics down.
So here is my list tell me what you think or if i need to add or remove items.

Instead of 4 tshirts, get 2 longsleeve button up shirts. They're more versatile and have pockets. For trousers, I would recommend two of the long kind and no shorts. If you need shorts for some reason then make one pair of trousers the zip-off kind.
Use the weight/money saved to have more socks. Homeless people almost always end up wearing beat to shit dirty socks and getting foot infections.
You don't need a razor, but if you want to shave then I guess it's important. Good call using the soap as your shaving soap, try to pick one that doesn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>685514 I have about $174 dollars to my name right now so buying any kind of vehicle is out of the question for me.
They have temp programs in my area i might check out but really im just burned out with my state and the lack of opportunity here, Just about everyone i know moved away years ago and have found jobs and shit, I feel like im just wasting my time here so my soul kind of wants to just wander around until i find something else which would make me homeless for at least a short period of time.

Ayy, so we made it to a dozen threads! Mainebub gettin the footy wit the GoPro! Will be interesting to see how the fishing changes throughout the season, it's a good thing he started so early.
Also, LTB and MTB ships in a couple days. Should I drop the extra $10 for the "Pro" box again? Seems like the boxes are worth the money whether it is the $15 box or $25 box. My crank bait box is overflowing though... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>704745 I've only caught a couple of them. Maybe around 20" each. They don't fight too crazy. They are so thin that it's not like they have a ton of strength to swim and run, I'm guessing it's all just the body shape and small fins. They are very, very picky about what they eat though and are hard to catch. One was on a nightcrawler on a bobber after they had been nibbling on it forever, and the other was a ~4" gold Rapala that I had to swim past them like a hundred times before they finally...

I am looking for a new backpack, one that will be between my day to day bag and my 55l Nomad Cobra. Currently considering the Camelbak Phantom 20l, can get it for 80 eurodollars. Is it any good? Is the price any good?
If you only backpack infrequently, or are on a tight budget, I recommend Teton Sports, or High Sierra. I've used both brands and I'm pretty impressed.
As for size, depends on how big your gear is. I use a 65L pack for weekend trips, but only because its what I have. I use it for winter camping so I need a lot of space, in the summer I just leave it mostly empty and cinch down the compression straps. I also hate anything strapped to the outside of the pack.

As the largemouth bass in Florida slow down with the warmer water, I can at least look forward to seeing what the anons in the Frozen North are catching:
I'm definitely going to play with more jigs and Texas rigged soft baits this summer. If I can run them along the bottom in deeper water, maybe I will have better luck with bass when it is sunny and 87F.
How do I get better at detecting bites with texas rigged plastic worms? I fish them by raising the rod tip to 11, letting it drop and reeling in the slack. They usually bite while its dropping but since the line is slack I usually don't know something bit it until its too late. I've accidentally gut hooked some bass.
I personally love my FN FAL It is just so soft shooting and accurate, it is my favorite hunting rifle that I own. What is your favorite gun for /out/door activities? Do you prefer handguns to long guns?

I actually hunt with a remington 700 but like to carry an SKS for plinking on hikes. It just werks.
