Hi just taught i start a post for a few recommendations for kit for outdoor pursuits , camping hiking hunting etc .
First on list is multitool
I would highly recommend a leatherman charge tti . Great multitool as everthing does the job as is supposed to i.e. needle nose pilers is good as a real pilers , screw driver is geat ect
Bought a jetboil pcs bout a year ago . Great bit of kit . Very quick to boil water and compact . I recommend buying potsupport wit it also though as you can the use frying pans/mesh tins on the stove
I recommend buying a camelbak brand one . Myself and friends had other types but were prone to leaking . Nothing worse then carry something up the side of mountain to find it had leaked and you have little water and fear is soaked . They are fairly robst . Can fill them up wit hot water which makes a decent hot water bottle . And sterile water to drink in the morning . Tip : put them in freezer to kill any bacteria that may have built up while not in use .
Petzl tikka tactical very handy when need handsfree job . Expensive enough but i have had mine for years and there isnt many that can beat it . There is also flip down red filter
Recentily bought led lenser p7 great torch for its size . (brighter than large maglite ) have to properly field test it first
ZiPlock bags .
Very useful for keeping kit dry and organised . Every bit Aas good as dry bags if not better due to there transperesency . Help "vacum Pack kit " . For example place a tshirt in ziplock bag close bag three quaters the way squeeze as much air out as possible and seal the bag .
Heavy duty bin bags
Once again can be used as dryliner for bag . can be made into makeshift poncho . A seat for wet ground . For its weight definatily worth bringing .
Possibly the best thing for running repairs . Have used it to hold boots together while on the side of a mountain . Once again since its lightwiegth worth carrying
These are just a few recommended pieces of kit
If any one else has any to add please do.
