OC only? Google img fags do nothing for me.
Blog it if you feel you have to.
Isopro not so good cold. Tape chem hand warmer to bottom.
And I made a soft shell for my canister
And a soft shell for my dehydrated food to stay warm while rehydrating.
The next trip will not be gormet.
I MYOG quite a bit. Almost always cheaper, always fit my needs better than commercial gear. Pic is my roll-top alcohol stove (coca-cola bottle). I've also done a cocoon hammock, hammock straps, several bike bags and I am currently dehydrating and vacuum-packing meals. Next up is Tyvek reflex rain pants and poncho. Will probably make a bivvy with this as well as a backup for my SOL Escape bivvy.
I made my own Jecklin Disk for field recording. Commerically sold ones cost three-hunnred dollars or more, and not only are they not fucking worth anything close to that, they also seem to have a number of limitations and design flaws. It's fucking ridiculous. Anyway, mine's not especially pretty looking but it sounds as beautiful as an adolescent orgasm. >:]
Nah it's winterseason and there there's nothing much to record. I think my last recording was back in Sept. If I'm lucky i can catch coyotes still but my gear can't be out there in the freezing bleak. The only thing I plan to get for the winter is some stuff with contact mics, ice thunder and maybe some creaking trees and whatnot.
And thanks friend!
>>soft shell for my dehydrated food to stay warm while rehydrating.
I use a insulated soft sided lunchbox that I got at the dollar store for the same purpose. It has a Velcro closure and will hold three Mountain House meals & keep them searing hot for 30 minutes (or more...)
Not a lot of /diy/nosaurs replying.
Daily reminder that gear mods count, too! Pic related.
I make a lot of my own gear and packs and whatnot. Ill start posting some in chronological order of what I have made.
We can only pray that 4chan doesn't rotate my shit.
Well this is the second pack I made, mounted on an Alice frame. I Really liked this setup as it was very minimalistic. Great for overnights in warm weather.
This is my third pack, I've posted it before. I spent a lot more time on this and focused on using good materials. Ignore the coleman hatchet, it don't actually use it. I am very proud of this one.
I made this case for some binoculars, hardly ever use it though.
And here is a sheath I made for a cold steel shovel.
What's the point of going outdoors if you don't look cool? Joking aside, the materials are practical, as the pack should last pretty much forever, and the waxed canvas is ridiculously water and fireproof as well.
And here's is my latest pack. Just a simple roll top day pack
Thanks anon. YeahI mostly use 18 oz canvas, heavy thread, solid copper rivets etc. I'm still not quite good/fast enough at making these for me to sell anything. For example, this pack >>670215 took close to 40 hours including designing it. At minimum wage here it would cost close to $500 to break even, which is an outrageous price, so for now it's just a hobby.
insulating the tank would be worthless
insulation only works when the source generates heat, and the tank itself is always ice cold even if the burner top starts getting hot
It's not completely useless. If you put the insulation on while you're still in your nice cozy home, and it goes is your nice warm cozy backpack, by the time you are cooking, a lot of the heat will remain.
If I was rich I would pay you for it just for mutual benefit but I'm not. And I know the feeling, I'm working on prototypes of something (not /out/ related) I want to sell, but I'd have to sell them for like $200 each just to make like $25, so that's like $4/hr -_-
Oh well, maybe someday
Anyone here ever DIY a packframe and straps? Either like pic related, or some other material? Been thinking of doing something like this and then using a large capacity sportsbag I have lying around to make a poorfag large capacity pack.
He should make bike bags (especially giant front handlebar bags) and sell them to the beardos on the Rivendell Bikes mailing list, those dorks love that kind of stuff.
I made a ultra high efficiency shower head for my rv. I get a 15 min shower off a 6 gallon tank
