>paying more than $50 for a roll mat
Can't believe people actually fall for this. The only excuse is if you're over 40.
Pic related costs $10, weighs next to nothing, dries in minutes and your sleep is just as good
What other products are just rip-offs?

Apropriate gear for overnight camping in snow.

No.1681258 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Hey y'all, I'm gonna be heading out next weekend to hike and camp overnight in the woods of NH. Thing is, I have to pack light as hell, as I'll be carrying my gear the whole time, and Ill need my hands free.
I put together a basic bag of things I imagine I would desperately need. But I have two main issues:

> 1. I don't have enough space for a tent or a good sleeping bag, which means I have to downgrade to a thick felt blanket, but still have no solution for my tent.
> 2. This is my first time camping in the winter, and my first time camping with only the things I can carry on my back. So I'm positive I'm missing something important.

The items I have so far are:
> a cooking set contained within one pot
> a water bottle
> a hatchet, saw, and knife
> A thick felt blanket and towel
> an extra sweater if I me or a buddy needs more layers
> an assortment of small things like a flashlight, lighter, multi tool, and fire starters.
> and spare gloves and socks, plus a hat/ski mask.

I'm leaving out food for now but I have plenty of space for at least a day or two of food, which is all I need.
And I will be wearing cold winter appropriate clothing.

My main question for you all is, how do I solve my tent problem, and what am I missing besides food and a tent?

Also, general winter /out/ thread/.
