This. It's a must have in these crazy modern times.

>>665325
since you are taking a tent i asume you're talking about multiday trekking.

Only spare socks and underwear is needed.
Tent is not necessary, shelter is.
Add means of water purification to the list.
Add sleeping pad
Add a cooking pot of some sorts
Add a flashlight
Add a compass

I think everyone who loves being /out/ should consider a hammock. It's changed how I camp for the better, and I could never go back.

But, it's not for everyone. Still, I think anyone who is skeptical should try it out.
>>
>>665336
Not the same anon but if you know how to use one with a map (and you should), you can prevent the majority of the horror stories you hear about hikers getting lost on a different trail (or no trail while they try bushwhacking suicide).

Also, pic related. What does /out/ think?
>>
>>665325
Depends on what you do, but assuming an overnight hike, I'd say :

Backpack >Yes
Tent > Not necessarily
Sleeping bag > Yes
Spare shirt, pants, underwear, singlet, socks > Only underwear and socks are truly needed, depends on the trip duration
knife > not so sure about that, unless you mean one for eating
firestarter > A lighter right ? Because those gimmicks that you rub to make a sparkle are worthless
food rations > Not necessarily, there's plenty other thing you can eat
water bottle full of water > Or a camelback, but you sure need water
Long John Silvers > ??
Dragon dildo > No you don't

Only spare socks and underwear is needed. > Indeed
Tent is not necessary, shelter is. > indeed, wise sir
Add means of water purification to the list. > depends on where you go
Add sleeping pad > not if you only sleep in a cabin
Add a cooking pot of some sorts > Not always needed
Add a flashlight > Yes or a headlamp
Add a compass > Yes and no, If you have a GPS and not planning a long trip, you can spare the compass
Hammock > not if there's no place to hang it
Bear Canister > Not if you are not in a bear country
Balaclava > No
Sling Shot > You silly kid, no
Folding Cutlery > For eating, yes, but not really
Trekking Poles > It's a great help I use some, but not everyone NEED it
Can Opener > If you pack cans
Paracord > No, it's useless. Even if your pack breaks down, it wont really help you, and forbid you to do any scrambling with it or rely your life on it
Sewing Awl > Not really useful for everyone
Solar USB charger > No, you dont
Duct Tape > No you don't
Toilet Paper > Yes unless you know how to use those little stones
Sunglasses > Yes
Spade for burying poo > you can use other tools but yes
Head Lamp > Yes
weed > No
Guns > No
Water proof clothing. > Yes
A first aid kit > Yes
Enough enriched Uranium to reach critical mass. > No backpack can carry it
a good leather wallet > No
Multi tool > Not really, but you can take it anyway kid
>>
a gun

perhaps a .44 magnum revolver if you're in bear country. add tracer rounds for emergency signalling.
>>
>>665526
>firestarter > A lighter right ? Because those gimmicks that you rub to make a sparkle are worthless
Hey, they'll work in a pinch of you know what you're doing; but yeah, I carry a couple bic lighters.

>Add means of water purification to the list. > depends on where you go
Unless you're in the mountains where the water is awesome, you should really have some way to purify water. I'll drink from a mountain spring where the water is just above freezing in midsummer without filtering, chemically sanitizing, or boiling. Anywhere else? Fuck that out loud, no screaming shits innawoods for me thanks.

>Sling Shot > You silly kid, no
Why not? They hardly weigh anything, are decent for taking small game (squirrel, rabbit, turkey, quail, grouse, etc.), and ammo is everywhere (pebbles, tree nuts, dirt clods).

>Paracord > No, it's useless. Even if your pack breaks down, it wont really help you, and forbid you to do any scrambling with it or rely your life on it
Fuck, man, if you're using paracord to climb you deserve whatever befalls you. To say that it's worthless, though? That's simply incorrect. It's decent versatile cordage that doesn't break the bank. Every foot gives you 22 feet total line (one foot is the outer sleeve, the other 21 come from the seven inner cords split into their three strands each). Climb with it? No fucking way. But it's decent for lashing, fishing, sewing (your gear or yourself if you gotta, wouldn't recommend that last bit due to infection risk but whatever).

>Multi tool > Not really, but you can take it anyway kid
>kid
Wow dude, just wow. Are multis great at anything? No, but they're a hell of a lot better than nothing when needed. Pliers for mechanic work, not so much. Pliers to unfuck your situation when you hook yourself fishing, absolutely.

Unless your pack needs to carry for an extended stay (a month or more), then all of the useful things that paracord can do would be best done at home. Anything more than a first-aid kit is just being a hoarder.

You're right, I carry a lifestraw when I'm not sure my 2L camelback will be enough for the day

>Sling Shot > You silly kid, no

Why killing animals ? It's not like you would die of hunger if you don't meat for a few days. If you're into it, you can take one, but it's sure not something that everyone should buy

>Paracord
Yes, it's harmless to carry some and can come in handy, but you can surely go along without it. I hike a lot (not overnight right) but I never came into a situation where I would have needed that can of line, neither I encountered any situation where If line were needed I had time to split it.

>multi tool
> when needed
In my opinion, there are not so many situation where you need one. I have a Leatherman Wave, I never used it while hiking, only while snowshoeing and snowboarding to use the screw driver. I agree it's good to have one sometimes, but I would not press anyone into buying one like if it's absolute necessity

My personal list of things that are "needed"

Water & Water Acquiring/Filtering tools

Fire Making Tools
Exposure Protection from the Environment

Everything else is not needed, merely frivolous, and a moot point to include, but I'll list it anyway:

Light Source
Knife
Axe
Shovel
Cordage
Communications Device
Compass & Map
Roll of Cash and some Coinage

I don't understand how you can get away with not changing clothes. Cooking foods in the same clothes you sleep in can easily increase your risk of a bear coming in to camp.

Missing a knife in that list.
>>
>>665325

Weapon*

Water

Ammo

Medical kit

Hygeine kit

Weapon cleaning kit

Fire starting kit

Axe, Machete or large fixed blade knife.

Pocket knife or multitool

Weather specific spare clothing like cold weather clothes or raingear. Even if in hot dry weather, a tightly rolled snugpak pancho can keep rain off you just in case and provide some warmth.

Tarp

Hammock

Large towel or blanket.

Rope and cordage.

Ultralight cookware and meal gear if you want.

---------

If electronics are important to you a hand crank for emergency charging you phone, gps etc.


*i'm not saying arm yourself like a commando and lug around a battle or assualt rifle, but guns are great for emergency hunting signalling but most importantly protection from animals and bandits

If in bear country, a .44 magnum revolver in a chest rig will do, or a .357 magnum in places without bear

Rifles in centerfire large hunting calibers or fighting calibers might not be a good choice due to weight unless your using light weight builds, carbines or bull pups but a take down rimfire can be good for survival and defense in the idea that having a long arm in view or in hand is visual deterant.

A shotgun is heavy but you can carry a variet of ammo for hunting birds and small game or medium game and self defense against humans and bears with the use of slugs.


Even if you live in a "peaceful" place where crime and bad things never happen, just please consider carrying at least a compact short barreled .357 revolver or hell, even a compact semi auto to prevent rape and murder and robbery.

Build a stand out of PVC tubes then. Still lighter and more compact than a tent. Plus you sleep better in a hammock. PVC will be strong enough, and you can stuff it full of food or something else to conserve space.
>>
>>667039
>Hammock with a PCV stand is lighter and more compact than a tent
I feel like most reasonable tents would weigh in less than that, and I have no idea how you think PVC would be more compact.

>you sleep better on a hammock
Maybe you do but not everyone.

>>667028
>>667029


Whatever man, there are plenty of people like you who go their entire life not locking doors or thinking about security or insurance until after a break in or robbery.

Just because bad stuff hasn't happened to you, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.


------------------------------------------

I bet you think I'm paranoid for having paramedic bag in my truck.

Funny thing is, not a month goes by where someone gets a scrape or cut and there is not even a simple first aid kit around let alone anybody who knows how to use one beyond sticking a band-aid on.
-------------------------

It's like how people think the cork screw on a swiss army knife or leather man juice is use less until somebody needs a bottle of wine opened, hell, I got paid 20 bucks because I helped a brother out open a bottle for him. Also you can use the cork screw to undo stubborn knots.

--------------------

Same thing with pub crawling in the city, even though I don't smoke I have lighter with me, you'd be surprised how many social avenues I've opened up by having a lighter.

Southern California...sometimes you run into some unfriendly homeless people when hiking in the woods.

>>
>>667044
That's a straw man, nobody is arguing about medical kits, cork screws or lighters.

Unless you're hunting the main upside to carrying a gun is the perception that it makes you safer which would be fine if it didn't make you and others less safe. In some cases I can see their utility, but when you're going /out/ and not planning on hunting I'd say it's generally a waste.

A nice Klr650 has the low end power to get you over shit like rocks, if you ended up having to do anything enduro. I understand 2 strokes are lighter, and have more horsepower. I don't give a fuck, though. Either the Klr650 or the honda xr650l, is a reasonable and responsible bike. They come plated, so you don't have to bullshit some kind of blinkers and headlight, horn, that shit.

I like using paracord to tie the trekking pole up, then put the tarp over it. I also use some paracord to tie off the bottom corners of the tarp. It's a nifty little shelter and I can vary it based on weather/wind.

I'm always amazed that people think a compass will save their lives. Most people don't even know how to read one correctly, and even then it's useless without a map. If you're legitimately lost in the woods, go downhill and follow water. You'll need the water anyway, and it always leads to civilization. Need a general direction to head in? Look at the sky. Not to mention the fact that most of us have a GPS unit in our pocket anyway, I'm posting from mine right now.

Yeah, follow the moon or sun, that won't cause you to walk in circles.

While you don't need signal for that you do need battery. And a compass weighs less.
