For ground sheets, emergency shelters, and first aid kits. Cheap! Cheap! Only $29.00.
A sump screen can be a lightweight help in reducing your environmental impact
on the wild places you love. By straining the food particles from your dishwater,
you dissuade animals from digging up the soil where your dishwater is drained,
and help keep them wild and unaccustomed to humans. This is especially important
on popular trails and camping areas. Help keep the chipmunks, marmots, jays, raccoons, skunks, coyotes, deer, and bear safe and out of other users gear.
I like a square panel of noseeum netting leftover from tents and bivysack manufacture.
I will send a piece with each order from Oware if you will note you want one in the comment
section of the order.
Old school mountaineers used metal nails, hobnails, in the leather soles of their boots for
added traction on ice.
Here is a method to do something similar with your running or hiking shoes. You could even
carry this lightweight kit with you into the backcountry for icy trails.
1. Small 1/4″ bit driver. The one shown is mostly plastic and the rest aluminum so
weighs very little. Some multi-tools have this on them as well. A tiny wrench could work.
Chuck one in a drill for quick at home attachments.
2. 1/4″ hex head sheet metal screws. Use the shortest ones you can buy so it won’t go
through the sole to your feet.
Just twist them in. You can remove them for the summer season or when you need to walk
across someone’s hardwood floor.
Now here. New bivy with side zip and room for a Neo Air pad along with a thick down bag and you.
