New Gear Day

Super stoked to lay hands on some new gear for Spring. I’ll let you know how the stuff shakes out as the woods dry up,and I’m able to start getting some use out of them.

From left to right:

Grand Trunk Hammock – the great thing here is that the MSRP on this Hammock is only $19. I’ve had it out of the bag and it seems pretty solid and is lighter weight than an ENO Singlenest.

Optimus Ti Spork – I’ve always wanted one, and now I have one. I’ve been happy with my set of plastic nesting spoon, knife, and fork. We’ll see if it’s worth moving to only one utensil.

Bahco Laplander Saw – this folding jammer comes highly recommended. I plan on building some forts and starting a few fires this Spring and this seems like just the tool.

There’s also this: an emergency zip up bivy. My plan is to use this as a standalone piece under a strung up tarp with my sleeping pad and bag inside. It’s super packable, lightweight, water proof, and cheap as hell.

Stay tuned for how this junk works out.
