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.
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?
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?

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
Anyone have any issues with this knife? Its roughly 11 3/8" and has a full tang blade. Im no knife expert but it sounds like its a quality knife for its price. Im curious if anyone owns this and whether or not they like it; and possible Bowie knife thread

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>647832 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.
>>647743 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.
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... Comment too long.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>647617 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.
>>647624 >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.
