Hey /out/ how yall doing?
Ive been starting to get into hiking lately and have a trip planned to backpack in Europe in Feb. I was wondering what you all would recommend for a decent pair hiking/snow boots? Ill be in Kiruna, Sweden for 2 days to see the northern lights and will be going from Sweden down to Berlin, London and finally Spain for around a month. I'm looking some for shoes that will keep my feet dry, warm comfortable and that would look okay when im in the city as well. Any suggestions?

I've had several pairs of Salewas now and they've treated me well.

Really it 's all about fit though. Check out some in person and try them on. Lowa, Asolo, Keen, Vasque, Scarpa and La Sportiva all make quality boots for hiking. There's a lot of other options that may also work for you though.

If you're doing a lot of snow travel you may consider mountaineering boots which generally have some insulation and are crampon compatible.
Don't be a faux stylish hipster insufferable cunt in uncomfortable boots you faggot. Just wear your normal footwear
Lol I would but I'm from California and last time I checked Vans are not snow/water proof. Figured if I could find shoes that can multitask it would save me money and space in my pack.

I love the cold and snow and used to live in Maine. I want to move to a U.S. state that gets a lot of snow.

What state would you suggest?

Preferably not Alaska

So I've been getting into hiking recently and would like to get further into it, however I experience knee joint pain whilst desending (specifically right knee). Do any of you know how to help alleviate this? Hiking shoes? Excercises? Or is it something that just gets better with experience?
26 replies and 4 images submitted. Click here to view.
Go see a doctor or physical therapist. There's no way we could possibly know what's causing pain in your specific situation.
I used to have this issue a lot but it kinda went away on its own a few years back. I don't recall doing anything specific about it, so I just suggest toughing it out.

Other anons might have a better idea though, don't take my word for it. Cheers.

Just re-read your post. Recently - there's the culprit. Give it time and don't stop hiking, like I said tough it out and you'll adjust as time goes. Your joints just aren't used to the stress.

What's your favorite piece of equipment/gear/clothing/etc? For me it has to be my Golite quilt. Packs lights, packs small, is incredibly toasty, and really nice quality. Got turned on to the idea of quilts or backless sleeping bags after reading Andrew Skurka's hiking guide. Fucking love it, the space and weight saving plus how damn warm it is are fantastic. Golite sold stuff cheap as hell before they went out of business too so that was another plus. Only complaint is no hood, but a hat fixes that. What about y'all?

Always wanted a CRF250, I got out of riding about 10 years ago. My go to bike then was an XR250 that I loved. Learned to ride on a 1980 XL185. Always been a fan of the 4 stroke Hondas.

My life and schedule now doesn't really afford me much time to ride. Haven't got on my XR since college more than 10 years ago.
Go lite is great for items you will only use a few times but after that their products are very flimsy and will disintegrate before your eyes. That's why they went out of business, that and their products were not returnable at their stores

alright out,

I want to go camping in 40° weather. Couldn't I just put my coals into a metal bowl, set that in a towel, and warm my tent up?

I looked online but no one has said anything about this technique. Is there anything wrong with this?

I really enjoyed looking at the thumbnail you posted.
It is a picture of the related topic.
I borrowed the picture, as I do not own the knife yet
They are a wholesale knife. I don't know who actually makes them, don't think they are from Master Cutlery. Knives like these are typically junk or gems. Up to you if you want to gamble.

Hello /out/

I'm in the market for a new tent for my outdoor adventures. I'm involved in a local scout troop and go camping fairly often with them, along with recreational camping and outdoors activities with family/friends, and setting up my five man tent by myself is a pain when it's dark and raining.

What I need is a small two man tent, light enough for backpacking yet sturdy enough for strong winds and weather. I don't plan on bunking with anyone but it's nice to have the option in case someone forgets a tent, and also space to get my...

This weighs much less
Woot has hammocks on sale, and their tarp. Hammock for $20, tarp for $16. Add some straps and you've got everything for about $55.

I know it's not a tent, but it is an option.
Eureka Apex 2. Best tent at that price point I've laid my hands on yet. Simple, freestanding, pockets, attic, good, spacious double vestibule fly, great quality, vent, not too heavy. It ain't featherlight, but I love the thing and it is perfect going on 6 years of use.

Get your ass to the store and get a package of the dry Lipton onion soup mix.
Toss the contents of one package in a crock pot. You better have a fucking crock pot faggot.
Remove silver skin and fat from the roast with a sharp knife, Toss in roast with some carrots, an onion and some celery.
Add enough water or beef broth to just cover the meat
Cook for 6-8 hours on low. Flip the roast once to keep the top from getting dry. Every time you lift the lid you let the heat out and it will take longer to cook. So one fucking time is sufficient.
Strain the broth and put broth in a sauce pan and boil that shit.
Dissolve two table spoons of corn starch in equal amount of warm water and add to boiling broth. Do it slow and stur that shit with a whisk to prevent lumps. Nobody likes lumpy gravy faggot. Once it returns to a boil the gravy is done. You might want to add some salt and pepper. Don't be a faggot and get the stone ground pepper. Since you are asking for recipes on 4chan I don't expect you to have a pepper mill.
Dice 5 medium potatoes and boil that shit in salted water, add a pad of butter to prevent a boil over,
If a fork goes in the potato easily that shit is done. Drain potatoes and add a 1/4 cup of milk and 3 pads of butter and a pinch of salt. Mash that shit like the slut she is.
Plate the roast, potatoes and the carrots. Top with gravy. I feed the onions, celery, cooked silver skin trimmings to the dog.
Invite a woman over, feed that shit too her. Impress the hell out of her. You can thank me later for helping you to get laid.

Can we talk belts?

I recently found that my GM seat-belt is starting to fall apart at the clip, so I decided it is time to get something good. Since I am always camping, biking, hunting, paint-balling, I figure I should ask what you guys use. I could go ahead and get any old leather belt, but I thought I would see if you guys have anything that you really like, or that you know is really good. I am the kind of person who likes to buy things once, so I will spend a bit. I was looking at the blackhawk belts, they make a really good rigger one so if I don't get feedback...

Right now I'm using a belt from tactical tailor. Got some sturdy nylon, some velcro, nice buckle. Good and stiff.

I carry usually a glock 19, with a AIWB kydex holster. Got a spare mag and a Leatherman wave on my belt too.

Every thing else usually goes into my pockets.

My friend has used a lot of the black hawk belts, he loves them. He kinda like batman with his belt. Keys, phone, pistol, small fixed blade, etc, etc.

I also got one of these coming in, for when I do shooting competition, shit like that.

Used to carry a leather belt, the buckle got in the way and the thing was a bit heavy.

I now use a nylon belt very similar to in the picture. So far I love it, only a few bucks on ebay but it's very sturdy.

Only downside to nylon is I cannot use it to strop my knife.

Have any of you ever had to disassemble 550 cord bracelets, slings, belts, bootlaces, etc. to use the cord? what did you do? If you didn't have that rope, what would have you have done?

Nobody ever has done that

Because nobody who has one of those tacticool belts or bracelets is a serious outdoorsman and if they are they brought cordage that you dont have to spend an hour untying to use

pretty much. my main hiking buddies are all lead climbers (which i am not) and rope is always part of their main carry.

I see guys with pic related on top of their hunting rifles walking around shooting ranges like they're going to shoot the moon. It's not just ugly. It's unnecessary. A magnification factor of about 6.5 is all that is needed for shooting animals out to 150 yards. If your quarry is further than that, there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get closer. Trying to shoot further than that will only make your sight picture shaky. The human eye can only use an exit pupil of about 5 mm--7 mm at the most. What that means is that a 6.5 power scope will not benefit...

The larger the scope diameter the more light is let into the aperture an the brighter the image you see through it. This allows you to easily see on darker overcast days and your performance isn't affected.

The difference from a 30mm to a 100mm scope is quite a bit in reference to light.
>The larger the scope diameter the more light is let into the aperture
You are correct.
>an the brighter the image you see through it
You are incorrect. When the exit pupil (objective size divided by magnification power) is larger than about 5 to 7 mm, you reach a point of diminishing marginal returns. The pupil in your eye simply cannot grow bigger than that.
