The recent cold snap has made me realize that I need all new long john silvers. I made the mistake of buying fruit of the loom last time and even though I have only worn them a few times, the elastic has complete failed on every single pair.
What do you guys wear? I need them to last a long time sitting in the drawer but rarely getting worn.
>The North Face and a Japanese company named Spiber have joined forces to create the Moon Parka, a prototype parka made from synthetic spider silk. Its design is based on the North Face’s Antarctica parka but is made from Spiber’s proprietary material QMONOS, a fiber made from bioengineered bacteria that mimics the properties of spider silk. The material upgrades a jacket already meant for the most extreme arctic conditions with what is considered the toughest material in the world.
/out/ engineers and designers what is your opinion on this product?
>>631952 >They exhibit a unique combination of high tensile strength and extensibility (ductility). This enables a silk fibre to absorb a lot of energy before breaking (toughness, the area under a stress-strain curve).
>A frequent mistake made in the mainstream media is to confuse strength and toughness when comparing silk to other materials. As shown below in detail, weight for weight, silk is stronger than steel, but not as strong as Kevlar. Silk is, however, tougher... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>The MTech Special Ops Combat Bowie boasts a massive 8 1/2" black traction coated, non reflective 440 stainless blade and measures 13 3/4" overall. The black rubber handle features comfortable finger grooves that gives the user a solid grip under the harshest conditions. Other features include a lanyard hole for attaching 550 Paracord and comes complete with a black nylon belt sheath.

Wow, a tactical looking CJ, nice buy!
>under the harshest conditions
stainless steel is great for jungle action, because it will not rust, because its stainless steel with extra black coat!
So after missing out on the first few patches I immediately clicked the 4chan advertised link for outpatches and got one! Apparently it took "too long" to ship so the dude gave me the red one free. 14 bucks total. Did I do good out? I'm just happy to finally have one :)
>>631703 imho they don't look as good as the others. I bought the pvc and sc/out/ patch from kommando store. I think the pvc was like 6$ (quality was excellent in the end) and the sc/out/ was $1. In the end if you are happy with them though, that's the main thing. The thing is they aren't standardized. And also sometimes hard to come by.
he's not much of an /out/ist either way. possibly an /an/(whateverthefucktheycallthemselves).
mostly he was /tv/ though. he was a showman and a personality. his enthusiasm and passion for animals and nature was admirable, and he did the most good with his talents anyone ever could. he was a good man and doesn't deserve to be made fun of.
>price range >style >functionality >length of trip Give those details and the board might help you better. Or tear you apart because it's not what they like. Depending on who's lurking both might happen.
I can recommend http://www.amazon.co.uk/G4Free-Military-Tactical-Backpack-Rucksack/dp/B011IBE44M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1447708820&sr=8-1&keywords=g4free Good space, big for a good EDC if thats what you like. Can carry food, sleeping system and shit like that for 1-2-3 days. Good space for books, pc you name it. If more space needed be there is molle. Also it's cheapish. It does not have a hip belt (for more hiking style), and if molle is not your style this is not what you want.
>>631462 He's got a little bit of that delusion that people who've done too much acid have, but overall he seems like a cool guy who's done more worthwhile things with his fame and money than anyone else in show business except maybe James Cameron. A man who just wants to meditate, chat with his bros on-air, hunt and drive Porsches fast is alright in my book.
So lately I've joined an outdoorsy club at my university and I've fallen head over heels in love with it. Hiking trails, making bonfires, chopping wood, staring up at space in the wee hours...love every part of it.
I really want to get more into this and start doing more, but I've really struggled on finding a good resource that can give me the basics (i.e. what should I be carrying, what's a great budget knife, good beginner stuff to build with wood) Even the /out/ sticky is pretty bad, whatwith most of the relevant links being either...

>>631415 there are tons of youtube fags who ultimately push their own merchandise but also make nice vids about their gear. i'm not gonna tell you names in fear of being accused of shilling. there is a lot you can learn from them just remember whatever they are selling you can get it cheaper on ebay.
awww don't listen to this guy OP, she's cute. There's always time to lose weight. I don't date overweight chicks, but not even so much due to the aesthetic, but just the laziness and lack of self respect that results.
>>631268 If I'm hiking all my friends drink bourbon (ky thing), but I'm a beer drinker, so most every weekend I load up the atv with a 30 pack and hit the hills with around 5 of my buddies. Always run into people doing the same. Get real wild then build a fire and cook some elegant wilderness meal to get sobered up, then head on in or stretch a tarp out and go to bed.
