Been wanting a "frame pack" found this one at Cal Ranch store, $75 USD. Very sturdy, can't wait to rig it out. I've got a 65 L dry bag to use for a main compartment.

Got the three piece snow shovel for $17 USD. Say this a year or two ago and went back for it, by my second trip, sold out! This time I could choose between red, org or blu. Got the red. I will strap it to the outside frame.

And a nice pair of Smartwool Hikers.

Getting ready to summit a 12,600' in mid Jan so the shovel might be nice for camp site prep.

It just got 12" fresh powder this weekend. Who knows by Jan?

Snowshoes also on the list, but may rent.

OC pics pls, I get tiered of posres using stock internet photos.

I picked up the same shovel, pretty light.

Any advice on updating this old frame I have, the original hip belt and straps were trash.

I assume you're W of the rockies? We're about to get that same system here in a couple hours.
>>
>>645973
> W of Rocks

Assuming is appropriate.

Dave C has a video on A.L.I.C.E. frame mods worth wacthing, I fuger frame doesn't matter. This one is longer than A.L.I.C.E. with a far better hip belt. I may look into better sholder straps after some mileage.

Drilling holes for eyebolts or installing cleats for lash points.

Adding various Maxpedition/Blackhawk type modular bags and pouches for custom carry.

I'm thinking pool noodle or foam pipe insulation to pad the frame for strapping on a rifle or such.

My main focus is adaptability of carrying firewood to milk crates to giant drybag, strapping on a shovel, axe, snowshoes and rifle to Stanley Packer tote or cooler.

Tags are still one it, but you see my direction.

With better sholder straps, it could go up to 75#s + and still be comfy for 25 miles.
>>
>>645981
One last thhing, people are replacing shit A.L.I.C.E. straps and belts with MOLLE straps and belts ("Hellcat" mod I think), you might look to milsurp stores or ebay for those or google img mod. for ideas.
>>
>>645981
You and I are trying to make about the same thing then. Not sure how I want to strap a rifle yet, I'm not a big fan of most of the options. Vertical on a side looks like what I'll probably do. Pool noodle padding is a good idea.

Could someone recommend me a good sleeping bag and bed roll?

>>646118
I just put down $550 on the Serria Designs Backcountry Bed, 800 filll dry down, 20* F bag.

My cold weather backpacking bag at 2#s.

I'd call it a great bag due to features and design.

I already have the Big Agnes insulated Q-Core pad so comfy! That's about $200.

So your price range is pertainent.

Unfortunately, there were shit tons of manufacturers making tube frame packs in the 60s and 70s so without a label there's no way to tell who made it or if they're still in business.
>>
>>646378
I'm very skeptical of that answer. Pretty much all external frame packs of that period are rigged the same way.

Even the current production trekker uses pin and loop fastening to attach the harness.
>>
You could have bought an actual pack for that price. Instead you have something completly useless. Congrats on being a big dummy

Thats how I took it too, I intend on picking a hip belt and shoulder straps up and making them work. I've heard good things about keltys customer service so I was a little confused by that reply.

Here's the only sticker I can find on it and I've tried all sorts of possible searches. Just missing something critical I think.

True enough but if it works better and is more comfortable than my other pack it's well worth it. Probably could manage that with 40$ of molle parts and some sewing though.

I've got tons of gear, some of it's new. Idunno what to post so I'll just post my most recent purchase which has me pretty chuffed for winter. Broner wool fingerless mittens with the flip top. Notice the thumb has a little flip top too! They are wool with thinsulate liner and they're warmer than bunny dicks and actually rather /fa/ too. I wish I had gray ones but I couldn't find them anywhere.

This is going to make my winter field recording and photography so much more enjoyable! Like twenny bucks.

I guess this is the proper place to ask.

First time here, I frequent /g/, /sci/ and sometimes /b/.

So, to the question. I love my pillow. Very much. It's pretty standard size, 60x40 cm. The thing is, I'd like to use it when I'm out camping or hiking in the woods as well as use it for when just lying on the grass outside in the summer.

The problem is, that the linen/pillowcase/cushion cover (I'm not too sure about the translation) gets rather dirty after some time.

I'm looking for some linen/covering made of a durable material that can handle the environment. I could make it myself I guess if I can find the right material.

Any ideas?

Just bought my first pair of pants that weren't Levis, BDU's, or Dickies.

PrAna "Bronson", in tan.

I fucking love these. They don't move around like Levi's, they're just a little bit stretchy, the crotch to waist is a good height, the compr is great, the cut is great, and they look nice enough to wear with semiformal wear.

there's a reason I some times use stock photos, my camera sucks balls

This is my new Helsport Fjellduk Pro.
It can be used as a bivvy bag, tarp or poncho. Lined with aluminium on the inside for some heat reflection. Comes with two sleeves for poncho use and a little red flag, for signalling I guess.

True, the top one is like $22 and the thinner bottom one is like $12. I'd rather have the more expensive one that isn't going to go all flimsy and I can use it to help make other tools easily. The flimsy bottom one seems a bit too wasteful. I can carry lots more hooks, flat arrow heads, and snare stuff in nearly the same space and they will be properly made.

You are talking about 2 different things that have 2 different uses. There's nothing to redpill.
>>
>>665850
They are cheap and good for heavy/bulky stuff. Internal frames are better for backpacking while I'd imagine external is better for hunting (I think attaching a carcass to an internal pack would be a nightmare) and tacticool bushcrafts.
