Oh, hello.

I like this one.

Kind regards.

u/xiaodown · 17 pointsr/camping

It's really not too hard to get started - just go where there's no buildings, and then stay there!

I like to find places that say "primitive" camping, which just means "less likely to be trashy people". I don't like to be at a campsite with 93 different tent sites, 92 of which are occupied by people playing music and drinking their bush beer at 3am and burning their styerfoam coolers. This may mean you get a campsite without restroom facilities, or with only a "vault toilet" (permanent porta-potty) - that's OK, you can go a day without a shower, it won't kill you. Be conscious that this is slightly more difficult for girls, if you have to pee in the woods, though.

Embrace the solitude; look up at the stars.

What kind of gear do you already have? You can get started super cheap if you're just doing some car camping and you don't want to get really involved in it.

There are a lot of posts and discussion all over the internet about how to shed weight so that you can go long-haul backpacking and do cool things way out in the wilderness, but cost scales like this with lightness. If you're just doing casual / first time / car camping, just go with some inexpensive gear until you decide, for you, what kind of camping you want to do.

For example, a three season sleeping bag will do you just fine for $23, for casual use. You may only get 20-30 uses out of it before you wear it out, but it's cheap. It's also good to have a sleeping pad; the old classic thermarest for $20 has worked just fine for people for 20 years, or an inexpensive inflatable pad at $25 makes a great choice. I usually don't bring a pillow, I usually wad up my clothes or jacket or both and use that as a pillow.

You typically want to have a tent that advertises (number of people actually sleeping +1) if you're doing simple / beginner camping, so for 2 people, get a 3-4 person tent. This is so you can fit all your gear in the tent. See if you can borrow one from a friend, or if you want your own, a 3 person tent or a 4 person tent will do just fine at $50.

It's a good idea to have some way to see in the dark, so bring a flashlight, or a mini lantern, or better yet, a head lamp is super useful.

You'll want to also remember to bring trash bags and toilet paper, in addition to the things you'd normally bring for an overnight trip (change of clothes, toothbrush, etc). Bring warmer clothes than you think you need, too - just in case. I can't count the number of times I've been camping, and thinking "Oh, it's only going to get down to 50 tonight", and because I'm far away from the city that the forecast was for, it actually gets down to 30 and I'm cold. Bring a jacket, bonus points for water-proof (in case it rains). Also, grab a small first aid kit (some bandaids, gauze, travel size hand sanitizer, neosporin, and a compression wrap should be able to handle most of what you'd need).

Bring water - especially if you don't know if there'll be potable water at the campsite. Just grab one of these things at the store is the easiest way. Bring a couple of disposable plates and some plastic cups.

Bring a folding chair! Don't bring anything that plays music! (annoys other campers).

For making food, I wouldn't bother with buying a stove or anything - just bring some charcoal and make a camp fire, and do "pocket dinners" or "hobo packs" - a great way to make a meal that is personalized to your tastes, and super easy. Grab some kielbasa or pre-cooked sausage, some onions, potatoes, brussel sprouts, bell peppers, mushrooms, whatever, make a big-ass sheet of aluminum foil by taking two big ass pieces of heavy duty foil and folding the edges together, dump the veggies in, wrap it up except for one end, put in about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water, then just put it on the coals for 20 min, flipping halfway through, and then when ready, grab it with some tongs, put it on a paper plate, open it up, and eat right out of the foil. Makes clean up easy - just throw the whole thing away. For breakfast, poptarts or energy bars or bagles (toasted on the fire on a marshmallow fork!). My favorite camping breakfast, though, is hard-boiled eggs with bacon salt sprinkled on them. We boil the eggs ahead of time, but it does mean you'll have to fit them in a cooler.

At night, make sure all the food stuff is back in the car, or in a secure (bear-proof, which really mostly means racoon proof) location. Same thing with the trash - put it in the dump location, or put it in your trunk to pack it out. Before you go to bed, also fold up your camping chairs, and put them in the car, or under the picnic table, or whatever, so that they don't get the dew on them.

And lastly, but very important, remember to read all of the state, local, and federal regulations about where you'll be camping. Some places won't let you have fires, some will let you have fires only in established fire rings, some make you sign a thing and print it out and bring it with you, etc. In California, we have to have a shovel and a bucket of water. Some places, you have to sign a wildlife / "crumb-clean" pledge, some places you have to pay in advance. Most places don't want you to bring firewood because of pest infestation risks, so plan to either gather firewood at the site or buy it from the rangers if they offer it. Some places will have restrictions on where you can park and how many cars are allowed, or how many people per site, etc. Some places allow dogs; most don't (?). A lot of places have specific regulations about alcohol, and some have regulations about smoking. Just be aware of all of this ahead of time.

Hope this helps! Dunno if it's what you're looking for, but ... well, there it is!

Practical:

  • A ladder for changing lightbulbs
  • A 2- or 3-step step-stool for getting into your kitchen cabinets (your choice between super lightweight or sturdy with a latching mechanism)
  • A flashlight per floor, and maybe even a battery-operated lantern if your area is prone to power outages
  • A fire extinguisher for your kitchen (that you know how to use!)
  • A carbon monoxide detector for your bedroom (with a display, so you can tell instantly whether there's a leak or a low battery if it goes off)
  • A black-and-white multi-function printer (for Amazon return labels and photocopying all the legal documents you'll still be dealing with for a while)
  • A one-year subscription to Consumer Reports ($30) because you're going to be buying a lot of stuff and it will save you hours of research

    Luxury:

  • A super comfy place to relax (whether that's a glider rocker for your living room or a hammock for your backyard)
  • A wake up light if your bedroom is dark
  • A swiveling aerator for your kitchen sink if you don't have a sprayer
u/HarpersGhost · 14 pointsr/TropicalWeather

Welcome! Storms are always far more "fun" to follow when you are afraid you are going to die have skin in the game.

Let's see. Sales tax relief week starts May 31. Get some lanterns like these, which are awesome. And make sure you get flood insurance. If you are renting, make sure you get rental insurance.

Good luck! Hurricanes honestly bring out the best in Floridians, so when the big one is coming, we do pull together.

u/matt8858 · 11 pointsr/bonnaroo

I use [these] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01C5QSENQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1525799059&sr=8-2-spons&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=etekcity+lantern&psc=1) and just hang them from the top of the canopy with hooks. Then you can just pull on them and they'll light up your camp. One half open was enough for out site and the batteries lasted through two Roos. They are actually still good but I'll be changing the batteries this year to avoid them dying while at camp.

u/Kfppoh · 10 pointsr/flashlight

It sounds like you already have a good handle on what you want. You’ll get other recommendations, but there’s nothing wrong with the items your considering. Getting both a good lantern and a powerful light is the way I would personally go also. There are other companies, like NEBO, who make the Slyde and other various, um, interesting options as well. Personally, for the lantern, I’ve had great success with the Streamlight Siege AA as a compact lantern, but that’s just me. Good luck, and happy hunting!

u/Wolczyk · 10 pointsr/CampingGear

Ya I could give some recommendations.

First, that 200 lumens claimed by Black Diamond is more than likely inflated. How long do they claim that lasts?

Second, a lot of people who enjoy the outdoors believe that a red light is best for keeping night vision. Over at r/flashlight it has been debated a lot and the general consensus is that a "sub-lumen mode" is better than a red light for keeping night vision. That would be a mode that is below 1 lumen, and I could not agree more.

Now for the recommendations (Please note I did not have time to find the best deals out there, so please look around for better pricing. Also, I recommend for all the below recommendations that you go with the WARMEST tint.):

Wowtac A2S- Well regarded as one of the best starter headlamps out there at a great price. Comes with a rechargeable battery.

Skillhunt H03- Another highly praised light at a decent price. Does not come with a battery. This light would require a battery that could be charged or a battery with a charger.

Olight H1R Honestly, I don't know much about this one as I am not a fan of Olight. However, Olight is a well regarded brand and I gurantee many people out there enjoy that light.

Armytek Wizard Pro- My personal favorite of the group. Very well regarded light with an amazing beam pattern and vast range of setting. Although a little expensive, this is an amazing light I have no problem recommending. Also check out the Elf and the Tiara

Zebralight Again, I don't know much about Zebralight. However, most people over at r/flashlight debate whether Zebralight or Armytek makes the best headlamp. If you like Zebralight and want a specific model recommendation, check over in the sub reddit.

There are a lot more out there. u/parametrek has created a database where you can put in your requirements and it will show you basically every light under the sun that is a good fit. Check it out http://flashlights.parametrek.com/index.html

In the '89 earthquake we were without power and water for a few days or more. Telephones didn't work (no cell phones back then). "Liquifaction" caused buildings in the Marina to slid off their foundations. The Bay Bridge was out of service for months. Then came the Northridge quake. Having an earthquake kit is being prepared. Here's some of what's in mine.

  1. [First Aid Kit] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003H2EODW/).

  2. Water. I've got four of [these] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0053GVRWQ/) stored under my bed. Plus a couple of boxes of [these] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ANY4EXM/)

  3. [Emergency food] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00955DUHQ/), and a [three pack of S.O.S. rations] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MDY91HY/).

  4. [Lantern] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0018S4XIS/), flashlights and batteries.

  5. [Portable propane stove] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009PUR5E/) and propane.

  6. I have a [UPS backup battery] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083TXNMM/) that will charge cell phones etc.

  7. Various camping gear and tools.
u/gas1 · 6 pointsr/Ultralight

You could possibly save some weight with a couple little things like the spade, multitool, headlamp etc.

http://www.amazon.com/Gerber-Dime-Multi-Tool-Black-30-000469/dp/B006M9NIDO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1457458207&sr=8-1&keywords=gerber+dime

~ 2.3 oz saves 5.4 oz at $16

http://gossamergear.com/deuce-of-spades.html

~ .17 oz saves about 4.2 oz at $20

http://www.amazon.com/Petzl-e-LITE-26-Lumens/dp/B008AUBOTS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1457458402&sr=8-1&keywords=petzl+e-lite

~ 1oz saves 1.2 oz at $30



No cost
Leave the wallet at home

saves 4oz

Don't take as much hand sanitizer. Put in a smaller dropper bottle

saves ~ 1.7 oz


Total saves about 16.5 oz or just over a pound for $66.


Otherwise if you want a big ticket item maybe the pack would be a good upgrade. http://www.zpacks.com/backpacks/arc_blast.shtml is 21oz at $325. But you might want to sort out your final tent before your pack so that you know your pack is the right size for your gear. tarptent.com has light weight tents for 2 people for under $300 like the squall 2 at a total of 34oz. that would save you about 30oz.

u/Beagle_Bailey · 6 pointsr/preppers

I'm inland Florida, so here are my tips.

Are you near a river that floods? Find out, because inland river flooding is a PITA. Even if you don't get hit, if upriver gets hit, you're going to be hurting.

Inland, you're going to be worried mainly about wind and trees falling, so structure damage and losing power.

This is a tropical storm, so expect several days of really hot, really sunny days after a big wind goes through. The other response covers most of what you need, but the major thing missing is ways of getting cool. Most modern buildings are built with the expectation of A/C, so they turn into ovens without it.

So here's my recommended list:

  • Big, good cooler. This is where you store your food that you are going to be eating around day 3 and 4.
  • Cheap, styrofoam cooler. This is for drinks for the day of the storm. Also good for condiments for sandwiches: mayo, jam, etc
  • Another cooler, not so nice. This is for day 2 and 3.
  • Even more ice. Stick it in your fridge and freezer and don't open the door until the power comes back on. Once you open the door, you're screwed.
  • LED lights. I use these.
  • Battery powered fans. I use this. It's going to be hot as hell, so you want to be cool.

    Avoid candles. It's a heat source that is just going to be making your life miserable.
u/4000Kay · 6 pointsr/flashlight

No included battery (Illumn is the best store for that), but the Skilhunt H03 RC in Neutral White eats WowTacs for breakfast. Comes with a headband and has a very floody beam due to the TIR, which is important for hiking. It also has a magnetic tailcap and is extremely lightweight and compact, and has onboard charging, so no need to remove the battery before charging.

u/Zak · 6 pointsr/flashlight

High-end option:


Zebralight SC600Fd Plus

The key points relative to your request are the color temperature and color rendering index. 5000K color temperature is a very close match to direct sunlight. CRI is a measure of how colors look relative to a blackbody radiator of the same color temperature. At 5000K, it's essentially a comparison to sunlight. The SC600Fd has a CRI of 93-95 out of a possible 100, which is about as high as LEDs get.

There's another hiccup though: Zebralight's site shows that it's unavailable for order right now. It's a new model, and production is still ramping up. I'm told they may be trying to avoid a backlog of preorders, but it's hard to estimate when it will be available.

Budget option:


Astrolux S41 - also get the 18650 battery tube as the stock configuration takes 18350 batteries with about 1/4 the capacity.

This looks like a pretty nice light, but it's had some QC issues. This, I believe is the older version with less severe issues. If you find one made of stuff more exotic than copper and black-anodized aluminum, avoid it for now. The driver is also considerably less efficient than Zebralight's on lower modes, brightness decreases as the battery drains and there's no thermal sensor to keep it from overheating.

The good news is it still has a ~5000K color temperature and over 90 (typically 93) CRI. Here's a review with measurements.

Batteries


In either case, Sanyo NCR18650GA batteries are a good choice and reasonably priced. The Nitecore F1 charger is very compact and also acts as a USB powerbank. If you want two slots and a display, the Nitecore D2 is a good deal.

I'd like to give a Nitecore LA10 CRI a spin. (And I like the blue tube option.)

u/Dorkamundo · 5 pointsr/flashlight

Never heard of the light, wouldn't trust it or the battery that comes with it. May not have low voltage protection.

Honestly, I fell in love with the Nitecore NU25 Plenty bright, lasts a long time, has the high CRI option and is very small so it doesn't hit things when you are sticking your head back behind a strut assembly.

  • Backpack - want to keep the one you have, or upgrade?
  • Footwear - boots or trail runners?
  • Shirts / Pants - sizes and styles you prefer?
  • Jackets - need waterproof? puffy warm? other?
u/toopc · 4 pointsr/Seattle

Buy an LED lantern for next time.

Store it with the batteries reversed. Safer than candles, easy to move from room to room, bright enough to read by, lasts up to 90 hours on 3 D batteries, and you'll probably lose it before the LEDs burn out.

u/plaidpaint · 4 pointsr/flashlight
u/684692 · 4 pointsr/flashlight

My carlight is a Skilhunt H03 - (link to review) It's currently $32 on sale from gearbest but it's also on US amazon for $45 if you want it soon. It's a right angle light that takes 18650 batteries or 2 CR123A batteries. It can be worn using the headband, or held, or attached to a part of the car using the magnet on the tail. If you get this light, use 2 CRA123As as they can sit for a decade untouched. Just be sure to loosen the tailcap before you store it, since the flashlight itself has a small amount of passive battery drain while off that is an issue when you're speaking about multiple years.

Rechargable lithium batteries don't like the cold, and non-rechargable AAs tend to leak, so for a light you're going to just toss in your glovebox, consider using non-rechargables.

Even if you don't go with the H03, you can buy lithium AA batteries in hardware stores and toss that in your car flashlight and they won't leak on you and will turn the light on just fine a decade from now.

Edit: AA sized suggestion is the Thrunite T10 II. It's around $20 and runs on AA or 14500 (3.7V rechargable lithium AA sized battery). The NW (neutral white) version is recommended as it's closest to pure white rather than a harsher blue light.

Same suggestion as before, if you're going to toss it in a car buy some lithium AAs (non-rechargable, 1.5V) and twist the tailcap a little before storage so the parasitic drain (or accidental turn-on from a feisty pothole) doesn't get you over the course of years. It has a magnet too, which I find super useful for a car light.

u/NeedsSleepy · 4 pointsr/VEDC

Get a right angle flashlight with a magnetic base that can take CR123 batteries. It’ll double as a headlamp and those batteries last 10 years on standby. The magnetic base will stick to your vehicle to aid in repairs, and they take 18650 batteries if you want a rechargeable option.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HGHIAD8

Or, if you’d prefer a lens that allows for spotlight and floodlight:

u/marty_town · 4 pointsr/flashlight
u/somnambulism · 4 pointsr/flashlight

The Nitecore LR30 is a good option for area lighting, or if you want something cheaper the Sanniu Tent Light works too. Both of those work with 18650s, but I'm guessing your mom doesn't have any of those lying around. The Nitecore can use CR123As, and the Sanniu can use AAAs.

In any case, I hope your mom is ok!!

u/huffalump1 · 4 pointsr/CampingGear

To clarify, the Nitecore NU25 (Amazon link).

I love it! Super light, rechargeable, very bright, decent battery life, redmode. Perfect for a weekend trip.

I'll recommend the Wowtac A2S NW as well - brighter and way longer battery. It's a little heavier, but that pays off with more battery life (and an interchangeable cell).

u/OhioGabe · 3 pointsr/flashlight

We bought three of these after a week blackout and I realized flashlights are a shitty way to illuminate a room.

Rayovac Sportsman

Takes 3 D cells, hangs by handle or upside down by a bottom hook to become a ceiling light in a tent. Solidly built for $15

u/shoangore · 3 pointsr/camping

If you're looking for portable lanterns, I made the mistake of only having them on my wishlist two years ago. My friends and family all bought me lanterns. On the bright side (haha!) I was able to test out a wide variety of lanterns...

Black Diamond Moji - This one I actually bought myself after being allowed to demo it at REI. The light is a tiny bit warmer than most LED lamps, and the white orb allows even distribution of lighting with no harsh glare when looking at the light. You can dim the light by holding the power button. Hard to turn on by accident, comes with a collapsible hanging clip, is water resistant, the battery life is great (I used it as a night light while doing a 6 day car trip, at least 15 hours of use on low setting with no issues or battery replacements). Best of all it's only $20, coming in as one of the cheapest lamps I've used. It's lightweight, but the orb on top means it'll take up extra valuable space.

Black Diamond Orbit - Got it as a gift. Loved that it could become compact. Feels a little cheap, but looks great. Won't turn on when closed. It's supposed to be water resistant, but the battery compartment screws open super easily, so I wonder about the validity. Light is very white, and can screw with your eyes if you look at it too closely. Flashlight function on the base is nice. I would only use this to hang up inside a tent on low light settings. Light distribution is uneven. Long battery life.

Black Diamond Apollo - I actually bought mine from an REI garage sale for $5, the last owner's batteries were corroded and messed up the contacts. A bit of cleaning later and I had the thing going again. I like the ability to hang it up or elevate it. Battery life is good, but like the Orbit, light distribution is uneven. It's much lighter than the Rayovac I'll talk about later, but about the same size.

Coleman Puck Lantern - My only lantern that is rechargeable via USB. My two main gripes are that when closed, it's nearly impossible to reopen (think suction!), and that the USB port closure opens up very easily - the rubber cover is too small, which means the water resistance is compromised very easily. That said, the ability to recharge is fantastic, and the battery life is even better - I ran it for 20 hours on high (just left it on) during a power outage and the thing still had plenty of power left. Takes a while to charge, but is darn durable and can compact well. Light distribution is decent but limited due to the size/design. Can hang, and includes a bottom LED as well for that reason. Lots of light-up configurations as well. Glare is decent.

Snow Peak Hozuki - At first I thought this lantern was ridiculous, but it's actually one of my favorites. It has a VERY warm yellow light similar to candles, a compact size and is magnetic, so I can hang it almost anywhere I want. I actually use this around the house while working on repairs in small corners or on my computer, or as a night light. I honestly am hesitant to take it camping since the battery cover can come undone super easily and it's NOT waterproof. Also the rubber light dispenser falls off easily. So for camping this is a terrible choice unless you want to only hang it in your tent. If any other lamp had the LED's the Hozuki has, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Rayovac Sportsman - Heavy, bulky, long lasting, built like a tank. If you're going car camping, this is the lamp to have. It's ugly, large, uses heavy batteries, is bright and water resistant. The glare is pretty bad, but it's VERY bright and can last for days. I love mine, and eventually bought my parents one as well.



u/DevastatorIIC · 3 pointsr/flashlight

I have a Rayovac LED Lantern. 3-D cells, 40 hours @ 240 lumen, or 90 hours on low (which is still quite bright). $26, hard to beat.

And a few spare batteries. They are lithium and good for about 10 years minimum. I have that one and the light is really good enough for everything. I'm still on my first battery.

BTW, shortening is a mystery to me, there is nothing like it in German stores. Is it rendered animal fat? What is it used for? Looks ... slimey ;).

This is a great backup to whatever he is using while fiddling at the back of the rack. Fits in most zippo pockets of jeans, retractable cord and folding design works around anything, and shelf life is around 10 years.

u/theoriginalviking · 3 pointsr/flashlight

This light has been pretty well regarded as a headlamp, otherwise Armytek has some good offerings for what you're looking for, I carried a Wizard Pro V3 up until yesterday when it tragically disappeared, they're stupidly durable, I hadn't respected mine in any way and it didn't even show any wear on it, the Tiara and Elf are good as well, from what I've heard. They're a little more expensive but if you get the Magnet USB version they don't need an external charger, just connect it to a USB port and it'll go the rest, and they come with batteries too.

u/mpak87 · 3 pointsr/flashlight

For a budget option that includes a battery and the equipment necessary to charge it, it’s really hard to beat. It is one of the most recommended lights around here.

The next light up on the price/quality scale is the Skilhunt H03 which just barely squeaks in under your budget from Amazon, though it can likely be found cheaper elsewhere. You would need to spend about $6 each on a couple of batteries and another $8 for a charger. Note this links are to Illumn, not Amazon, Amazon is fine for lights, but you don’t want to buy bare cells there, they have a bunch of dangerous fakes making it into their supply chain.

u/penguin941 · 3 pointsr/flashlight
u/leroy020 · 3 pointsr/flashlight

Take a look at Astrolux S41. It is $30 on Amazon. XTAR MC1 charger is good quality and $8 on Amazon. I would not buy batteries from Amazon though, get a couple IMR 18350 cells from Mtn Electronics for about $12 shipped making this light well under your budget.

Things you might not like are that it is longer (3.2") than you want and it has a normal reverse clicky tail switch. The light does come with deep carry clip and lanyard. The real draw of this one is the output, 1400+ lumen quad emitter which at this price is hard or impossible to find elsewhere. With a little practice turbo and strobe are readily accessible or the light can be configured to turn on directly into these modes using mode memory.

Regarding using it as an impact tool no light in this price range will be designed to withstand heavy abuse but it does come in a stainless steel variety which would hold up better than aluminum. The steel version is S41S and is often available at Banggood for $35 but currently is $42, still barely within budget if you skip the spare battery. As far as best you can get in this price range, I think this is it.

u/bmengineer · 3 pointsr/flashlight

Looks like a neat product, I like the hook design! I'd probably rather grab a Nitecore LA10CRI or even an LR30 and only have to worry about charging a single battery - but to be fair, those are more than double the price.

I'd probably also rather use a diffuser unless we're talking much larger lanterns, but it's still a neat product!

u/AttemptedWit · 3 pointsr/flashlight

Maybe the Nitecore LA10 CRI?

Edit: The standard one is slightly brighter and slightly cheaper, but the high CRI version will produce more realistic colors and will look overall more pleasant.

I have both and love both.

u/King_Jeebus · 3 pointsr/PacificCrestTrail

I used my phone for Guthook/camera (and podcasts) so it was pretty much a necessity to be charged before I could leave town... so I made sure my wall-charger, powerbank, and phone were all quick-charge and it made a massive difference for me: I would hit town and put phone/powerbank on charge first thing, do my re-ration etc, then be able to hit the trail again within a few hours with full charge ... whereas I knew other folk who had to stay overnight when they didn't want to.

I got:

  • AUKEY USB Wall Charger with Quick Charge 3.0 & Dual Ports (surprisingly large, but worked great.)
  • Anker PowerCore II 10000 (great, quick charge both in and out. Only 1 port, but I 95% of the time just charged the phone.)
  • Nitecore NU25 (awesome torch. not quickcharge, but never really needed it)
  • 2 USB cables (came with the above stuff, I switched one out for a shorter one eventually)
  • Motorola G4+ (good for Guthook, meh camera but did the job well enough and it was kinda disposable as it only cost $100 unlocked)
  • iPod nano (I just like music so much while I walk I wanted a backup in case phone started getting low, and this thing is tiny. I actually used it a ton!)

    I think 2 ports is enough really, I would just charge the headtorch/ipod when I got the chance or a longer town stay. Ontrail I would kinda start running low if I used the phone a lot for 4 days, and have to be a bit conservy... there's likely better stuff now, but just fyi!
u/atetuna · 3 pointsr/camping

A pad. If you're expecting cold nights along the way, get an insulated pad. Foam pads and self inflating pads are inherently insulated. If you go with any form of inflatable, blow it up early so it has a chance to cool while you're setting up camp, then make sure you top it off before you go to sleep because the hot moist air you blow in will shrink a bit.

Got stakes? You may want to get a few extra, and get some extra cord too. To save yourself time while setting up camp, go ahead and set up your tent at home and attach the cord to every guyline loop and tie your tension knots. You really want to stake and guy out your tent if it's windy, and especially if you'll be leaving your tent during the day since you won't be around if the weather changes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnwfT2tQ1zU

No, don't buy a generator. You're on a road trip, so you'll probably get into campgrounds late in the day when there's usually a ban on using generators because of how noisy they are. If you really want power, then pay extra for a site at the campground that has electricity. OTOH, if you're just powering devices that charge via usb, then charge them in your vehicle, and get a power bank if you need extra power in your tent.

Double check the rating on your sleeping bag, especially if it's one of those bulky synthetic bags that cost around $100 or less. They tend to use the lower limit or extreme rating instead of the comfort rating. If you want to take the lazy way, then add 20°F to the rating...so a 20°F bag is actually comfortable at 40°F.

Get yourself a roll of quarters just in case laundromats don't have functioning coin exchangers, and if you're frugal, pack yourself some detergent too.

If you're changing locations every day, and you don't need a hot cup of coffee, tea or cocoa, then you might be better off eating at restaurants or getting to go meals. It'll mean carrying less gear and spending less time cooking and cleaning. Bring snacks to fill in between meals.

You may want to get a flashlight and headlamp. /r/flashlight is the place to get recommendations for lights that are much better than Black Diamond, Petzl or worse. I'll throw out a quick recommendation. Nitecore NU20 or NU25 they have a low setting that's not too offensive to your tent mate if you need to get up in the middle of the night, the high mode is decent, it's efficient, and it'll actually show you the battery life in each mode unlike so many crappy plastic headlamps. There's also the Wowtac A1S.

If you get cold feet at night out there, take a look at your socks. It doesn't take much for socks to be tight enough to restrict blood flow and make your feet colder even if you're wearing extra socks.

u/OtherAlan · 3 pointsr/flashlight

I used a hand crank radio and light during Hurricane Irene, and afterwards I immediately replaced them with regular battery powered ones.

The last thing you want after bailing water out of your basement for an hour is to have to crank the weather radio. Alkaline batteries are cheap and can be stored for years without issue.

For emergency light, buy the Rayovac Sportsman Extreme LED Lantern. Or its ruggedized brother.

u/korgothwashere · 2 pointsr/VEDC

I'm not seeing much of a reason not to carry both. There are some Petzl headlamps out there you can get for $20, as well as some really bright and reliable lights you can get for about the same cost. Neither of those options have to take up a lot of space, and you probably don't have to worry too much about carrying capacity in a car (until you really start packing things in for trips). There's not really much need to compromise for either one.

A headlamp is nice though, as others have said, for hands free use of a light and many of them come with an ability to use readily available AAA batteries. You're just not typically going to get a lot of light out of them for any distance unless you start dropping big dollars. For work lights though, they're hard to beat.

Now, if you want something you can search or signal with I would suggest a dedicated flashlight. There are some really good options available for not a lot of money that will out perform even quality headlamps for throw and output without even getting up to their brightest settings.

Personally, I just got a cheap Energizer headlamp two pack for $11 one Christmas season and gave one to my GF at the time, and threw the other in my backpack for emergencies. Amazon has a 135 lumen two pack for $19 that are even more output than what I have (mine is MAYBE 35 lumens) but if you wanted to get a good Petzl headlamp they're really not that expensive either. Even the one you linked to is just $30 on Amazon.

For my main flashlight, I've got a Fenix UC35 which I won in a giveaway. It's a bit pricey, but the output is stupid bright. Battery is an 18650 rechargeable which can be USB recharged or charged with a dedicated charger. You won't likely find this battery in stores, but many 18650 flashlights can also use CR123a non rechargables which you CAN find in stores like Walmart or Home Depot, plus its ability to recharge with micro USB means I can charge it with my phone charger in my car, or with my battery pack in my backpack...or anyone else's android phone charger I happen to find laying around. If you plan ahead and buy a few spare batteries, you won't need to worry about it at all.

I also recently just picked up a few Eagle Eye X5R flashlights that run off the same batteries for the house and have been very good lights so far.

u/ruby_roob · 2 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

I night hiked most mornings and loved my petzl for it.
Only had to change the battery once, very lightweight and easy to wear over a hat or something else in colder weather. It's not incredibly bright but I thought it was terrific. I had done some section hiking with a brighter lamp before the thru but realized that I didn't need to see more than 20-30 feet out on the trail.

u/lacecorsetdolly · 2 pointsr/XXRunning

He'll look goofy, but it will help him stay warm. They also make summer gear that's really helpful at wicking the sweat away and keeping you cool.

A portable charger is also a great idea. If he's out there using a spotify playlist, his phone is going to lose charge quickly. Speaking of spotify, if you share a playlist, you can add great songs you find at any time, which can be a nice (or funny!) surprise.

u/NurseMcStuffins · 2 pointsr/motocamping

Thank you! You are very welcome. :-)

I think it would be very doable to pack it all on your bike with room for a passenger. ;) People sometimes say you don't have to worry about weight so much with a bike doing the work, so cheaper gear is fine. They aren't exactly wrong, but weight, size, and price are all tied together. The main limiting factor is room, which makes the extra $$ for gear worth it. On top of it being good quality. Also while the weight isn't a huge thing, it does add up. My husband's sleeping pad is a decade+ old, and takes up half the room our tent does! My new one is more comfortable, lighter, and at least half the size of his rolled up.

Are the rangers iffy about burners? or just campfires? It just seems odd they wouldn't want even the tiny burner we had with us.

I LOVE our tent! I spent many hours researching tents before picking it, and it has been exactly what we want!

The lantern is an "Ultra Bright LED Lantern" It lives up to it's name and is truly Ultra bright, almost too much. BUT it's $12 bucks, and ridiculously light weight. I think a can of coke/beer is heavier.

Since I had the pics up anyways, I posted more details about our gear too.

This sounds interesting... I already do the 'trying to beat your PB' game for my commuting route which is 10km on a paved path from a place I park to university campus (which has terrible non-free parking).

I won't know how different smaller segment PB times vs. a general PB time will be until I try it though. I'll think about it.


My favorite is to see how many different people I can pass on a given day.

Today I tried something stupid where I wanted to see if I could put my headlamp on without stopping which involved taking off my helmet, resting it on a handle bar, putting on the headlamp, then putting my helmet back on while continue to pedal and relying on physics to keep the bike upright.

I succeeded, but it was the stupidest thing I've ever tried... beat my previous PB on this trail despite this stupidity because someone passed me while I was attempting to put on the head lamp and I just would not let myself be passed because of this stupidity.

u/LonelySpeck2 · 1 pointr/LandscapeAstro

It wasn't as bad as I thought, a single shot and some editing is all it took. I picked up a headlamp (link below) from Amazon and used it in this shot. This particular one allowed me to adjust the width of the light, narrow or wide, and I went with the narrowest setting here. The light was really blue in the original image, I had to edit the beam to make it slightly lighter...and it's still very blue. Overall the shot was taken the same way as other astrophotography images. The night was cool and we had very little humidity, you could do something similar on a clear night. The sharpness and defined look was most certainly a result of a friend keeping their head steady for 23 seconds :)

Their are some solar options if you have sun throughout the day. Otherwise I use a string light hooked up to a battery and run it from my tent to a tree or something. Usually over my cooking and eating area.

Get some LED lanterns. Three AA batteries run them for 12 hours at 60 lumens, and you can get a 4 pack of lanterns from Amazon for $26, batteries included.

I need to buy a light for RDL pacing duties and am so stuck too... was about to jump on the Nao+ or Reactik+ and then my buddy is all crazy about the Skilhunt H03. He's going to let me borrow it this week so hoping to make a decision then!!!!

I've got a one of these for a light: https://www.amazon.com/Skilhunt-Flashlight-Waterproof-Headlight-FloodLight/dp/B01HGHIAD8/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=skilhunt&qid=1566489272&s=gateway&sr=8-3

It's tiny, waterproof, magnetic bottom, uses 18650's and headlamp strap comes in handy.

u/blackjeansandboots · 1 pointr/flashlight

u/Kysumi · 1 pointr/flashlight

Thanks for doing this again!

Here's my choice.

u/Natanael_L · 1 pointr/flashlight

Can't decide one;

This one's a pretty neat keychain light, that can hang off clothes too: https://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-KeyMate-USB/dp/B01N04XRJA/

This one's one of the unusual siblings of the Nitecore Tube: https://www.amazon.com/Nitecore-Industrial-T360M-Rechargeable-Utility/dp/B01N4FS7XY/

This one says it doesn't ship to Sweden... :/ https://www.amazon.com/RovyVon-Luminous-Rechargeable-Multi-Functional-Flashlight/dp/B07F5H3CFH/

Thinking of giving one of these to my sister: https://www.amazon.com/Nitecore-LA10-CRI/dp/B01M2TRRGB/

Or this, to complement my TI5T: https://www.amazon.com/ThruNite-Ti4T-Neutral-White/dp/B014SAJCG0/

Or this for myself: https://www.amazon.com/Nitecore-TIP-CRI/dp/B01L9ST2CI/

It's probably going to be the Tip CRI or Keymate

u/StoneAthleticClub · 1 pointr/flashlight

u/chrisbenson · 1 pointr/Ultralight

This is a very popular headlamp around here lately. I've had one for a little while and I'm really impressed. You can fashion a UL headband that works surprisingly well like this. My NU25 with headband is only 1.06oz

If you carry a backup battery bank then a rechargeable light is a great way to go since you can be assured you'll never run out of power. You can still use them as they're charging if it dies in the middle of using it. It's nice to not have to worry about how much juice is left in my AAA or how many backups to carry just in case.

LT1 for me.

I'm starting to wonder when the growth will slow down. I guess we'll see. It's nice to see so many people share this obsession interest.

BLF Lantern. Totally fine with waiting if it's not available yet.

> Unfortunately no one makes a good lightweight micro-usb rechargeable headlamp with a replaceable cell at the moment.

This is what I use.

Slightly on the heavy side, but it checks all the boxes for me.

Edit: for anyone curious, mine clocks in a 99g after removing the magnet.
