I recommend Fits. I wear them daily. No seams, they don't bunch up, merino wool. .. just really solid socks.

My feet sweat like a motherfucker when I'm hiking innadesert. I like a cotton/wool blend, they seem to stay dry better than most fabrics and blends I've tried.

I've never camped before because I'm a weenie, but I want to.

How are inflatable tents? They seem really simple and quick to set up and take down, which is what I'm looking for in a tent.

>Inflatable
Raises concerns about what happens if it is ever punctured (especially if you are sleeping in it or camping in the middle of nowhere). Just get a simple, one-person pole tent and be done with it.
>>
That looks like a pain in the ass.

You probably want something more like the coleman instant tents. They keep the supports in place, and you just kinda stretch 'em up like a cover people use at a picnic or tailgating. Quechua makes really easy up tents, like the ones you toss up and they pop into shape, and you just stake it down.

Only advantage I could see from an inflatable tent might be lower total weight. But I don't see it being any faster or easier than some of the more traditional tents.
>>
They seems like a cool idea, but getting a hole in one could ruin the entire tent.

I had a Coleman instant up tent. It was huge, and heavy, but did go up easy. It was not terribly weatherproof. During a really really hard storm, I got wet. So wet I had to abandon the tent at 4AM and go to my truck. I was soaked, and all my stuff was too.

A traditional tent can be really easy to set up if you practice a few times. I don't see how an inflatable is an upgrade.

Hi /out/ hopefully this is an acceptable thread here.

I've been interested in wildlife/nature sounds recording for some time and I really don't know anything about it.
For what I've understood the equipment isn't too big or heavy so it'd be easy to carry and record when out.

Would love to hear if someone does this and has some tips on the topic.

For what it's worth I've got a little Tascam sound recorder, pic related. It's got a lot of bells and whistles which I don't know how to use but it's light as a feather. It cost $100 so I assume it's good. Recordings turn out quiet as fuck, though, I guess it's meant to be held right next to a sound source. It's fine once you crank up the decibels in Audacity. No idea what you're supposed to use for nature recordings, but this is a decent all-rounder.

Please, don't do this. /mu/ is a terrible, terrible place.

There is some anon that has tons of awesome nature recordings. You need a couple nice mics I'm sure, or at least not total garbage. I know the one anon actually made his own microphone as well, but I'm sure you need some knowledge of how it all works to build stuff successfully.

Does that have an input to plug a mic into? Something like that, plus a decent microphone made...

I saw a similar thread on /k/. Anyone have any plans for their tax returns? Any gear you are hoping to buy? Saving for a certain trip? I am probably going to buy a suunto core watch and maybe some decent carhartt work clothes for the summer. The rest I will save in general and for school related.

5 KB,
So I'm going skiing (with lessons) for the first time and I need the following:

ski googles
ski pants
ski jackets (maybe, I already have a very warm winter jacket; a bit bulky though)
gloves
hat
face wrap/ wind breaker

I dont have a huge budget; I'm aiming for around $300 total, but want to aim for the best-bang-for-you-buck price range.

any help?

Without knowing your locale there is little way to help you other than find a bunch of internet/amazon purchases.
Most areas have a salvage store. Ocean State Job Lot, Big Lots, etc You can typically pick up ski bibs for dirt cheap. May not be great quality but are certainly good enough to learn in. Basic black ftw.
Weather is a huge factor. I can go skiing in a turtleneck one day, light shell another, full parka another, trash bag over lining in the rain. Done it all.
For learning goggles aren't critical...

BIGGEST FISH THREAD:

Your biggest fish that you've ever caught (weight, not length)

Current best: 42lb Striped Bass

Shouldn't be my best for too long. Going tuna fishing this summer and most of the fish are 50+ so...I'm excited.

Refill them yourself

I bought a valve to do that and I never got them more than ~half full with a full propane tank and it only dwindled from there because of muh equilibrium pressure
>>
>>674469
Freeze your propane tanks and fill them them to the half way point. As you fill each one put them directly back into the freezer. Once you fill your last bottle to the half way point, pull the first bottle you filled out of the freezer and hook it up again. Should take another 5 minutes or so and be careful not to over fill it. It will fill 100% full if left unattended. Works every time.

Sup /out/

Bored EMT here, and an outdoorsman. Post your first kit/contents and I rate/give suggestions for it.

Don't have a first aid kit? Name me a price, the kind of camping you do, around how much weight you can carry around and I'll find you something good for it!

General tips:
1. Don't buy shit you don't know how to use. (scalpels, IV sets, airways in most cases)
2. Have something for both major and minor trauma.
3. Have a tourniquet.
4. Have shears
5. Have a shitload of gauze.

Ask away!
