A big thing for me is fire. I love me some fire, but the question is always how to make it. There are all kinds of things to make your life easier, but two of my favorite things are 1.) The Sven Saw which is a collapsing saw that is good for brances/trees up to about 6 or 7inches (in my opinion) and 2.) Candle Firestarters along the lines of these. To be fair, I havent bought any candle firestarters in a while, since I made about 60 of them myself and decided it wasn't worth it to try that again. I'm just about out of them and will have to find a suitable commercial product.

Some of the other things that I lug along are as follows:

Cooking:

  • Jet Boil - for hot beverages and simple meals

  • Instant Coffee - Not nearly as tasty as the good stuff, but significantly less hassle

  • Boullion Cubes - Easy source of salts, while providing a simple base for soups

  • Small Tupperware cup w/ sandwich baggies of spices - Nothing makes a bland meal much better than a concoction of spices. I use a small 2"x2"x2" cup that keeps enough spices packed and dry to give me plenty of options.

    General

  • Some lengths of rope and a few carabiners - useful hang stuff to dry, or secure a kayak to the shore

  • Camp Chairs - Depending on your kayak, this may mean different types of seating. It can range from a full size comfortable chair, to a 3 legged ball-buster, but whatever it is, it beats sitting on the ground.

  • Quality dry bags - I've found most dry bags will keep water out when new, but the material used for construction makes a lot of difference. My rule of thumb is 'the thicker the better'. My bag of choice is the Sea-to-Summit Big River Dry Bag due to the fabric (durable but not as stiff as the PVC bags) and the lashing loops that let me strap it down on top of my kayak without having second thoughts.

    Some things to consider

  • If you're planning on cooking your own food from scratch, cook it at home first using the same equipment you'll be using on the river. I keep bringing rice with me to add to some basic broth, and I keep underestimating how long it actually takes to fully cook it. I'm sure there is a work around, or a better choice in rice, but I suck and don't plan ahead very well

  • Bringing a tent? separate the poles from the rest of the tent, this will make the fabric part much easier to manipulate into a storage compartment.

    This is all I have off the top of my head, if something else comes up, I will post it.

While I was recovering from a back injury, I brought this with me. Didn't have any issues with security and it saved my life. Was very, very light and easy to carry around.

u/starbewy · 2 pointsr/golf

yup to each his own.

If someone wanted they could just keep a $17 lightweight camping stool in their bag and have a similar set up and save ~$150 over a clic gear/attachments. But I plan on using mine for many years to come, so I don't mind shelling out some more money to make my rounds more convenient.

u/dabutta · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

Not necessarily UL.. But I've tried various different chairs/mats and always come back to this stool

I just bought 2 more for $7 on sale at leftlanesports. Super easy to strap to pack and perfect for what i need.

This is the chair that I use, it collapses and straps very nicely on the side of my backpack.

First, let me actually link to the stool I bought.

Second, check out what shows up when you search disc golf stool on amazon.

The first result was too short for my liking. The 3rd had a pretty meh review rating. Mine, right there at number 2, had solid ratings and a decent price.

Both the Innova and Discraft chair on that list, as well as your HukLab brand one price out at at least $40, more than twice what I paid. That definitely isn't a marginal difference I'm gonna ignore to "grow the sport".

Not to mention we're all already doing our part by buying discs, bags, paying tournament entries, playing our local courses, spreading the word in our communities, and inviting new people out with us.

I don't owe a company that's trying to make a buck off a niche sport by marketing a specialized "disc golf stool" when other outdoor companies, who have just as much a vested interest in making a durable, long lasting product, can beat the DG companies price 2 times over.

What would win me over? More functionality. You show me a disc golf stool that somehow works better on a DG course than a regular camping stool that beats is price 2 times over, maybe I'll consider it. That's why I have a disc golf bag instead of a regular backpack.

>We are very fortunate to be in the sport which has the cheapest equipment IN THE WORLD. No sporting item is cheaper than a golf disc when lifetime of the product is factored in.

That's a pretty baseless claim. Tons of sports require only 1 item, the ball, soccer and basketball for instance. You can equate hoops and nets for our disc golf courses, so those are free. AND not everyone needs their own ball.


>Do not buy stuff from non-disc golf companies if it is at all possible!

I suppose your next pants purchase will be the $100 disc golf pants

>This is hardly rocket surgery now - is it?

Kinda jumbled up two different idioms there.


tl:dr some specialized products are overpriced because they know some people will buy it at that price just because it says "disc golf" on it. I say be an informed shopper and force them to compete.

I would recommend a collapsible folding stool, at least. Like this one It's less expensive, less obvious, and can fit in a backpack.

u/italicizedmeatball · 1 pointr/Shambhala

For packing, I used a North Face XXL Base Camp duffel bag. Did you get a luggage scale? I did, and it really really helped me make the most of my packing. I also use it for backpacking too, to help measure my gear loadout.

Wagons: I bought a Sekey folding wagon with bigass moon rover tires, but the Amazon listing got changed to patio umbrellas and I don't see them on there at all anymore, so... ?

Here's one that looks almost identical, but with extra bells and whistles that you may or may not want. Looks legit though:

There's also this wagon that, although it doesn't have the oversize tires, is a double decker design that would be helpful for carrying more gear:

As for seating, I have one of these that I brought with, and it's easy enough to fit in a duffel bag, cheap, and light:

REI also makes a really comfy collapsible backpacking chair that is cheaper than comparable ones from Helinox, and more comfortable IMO:

Hammocks are always a great idea too. The Hennessy Hammocks mentioned before are great for camping, but if you just want something cheap and casual for chilling while camping, I've been really happy with this company:

I'd bring my stein and one of these guys. $1 for essentially three beers.

Your move, price gougers.
