Je me suis toujours demandé, vous transportez quoi vous, dans vos sacs à dos ? Depuis que je me suis intéressé à se qu'on appel des EDC (Every Day Carry), je transporte toujours avec moi un équipement qui ferait passer Marry Poppins pour une petite joueuse. Mes recherches sur le sujet m'ont forcement fait passer par le survivalisme, qui est un sujet vachement intéressant ! Mais comme pour la muscu j'ai du subir tout les clichés qui vont avec... Exemple rapide :
Muscu = Gros cons masculiniste superficiel et beauf
Survivalisme = Facho agressif et asocial
C'est dommage que les gens aient autant de clichés, parce que c'est un domaine très instructif. Bref, en gros j'ai toujours sur moi :
*Rangé dans une pochette Maxpedition.
Voila. J'vais peut être passer pour un gros taré aux yeux de certains, mais ça m'a bien aidé d'avoir tout ça sur moi, en de nombreuses occasion. Je vous invite à partager vos sac, comment vous prévoyez les coups dur, votre avis sur le sujet, etc !
PS: Il existe un sous du doux nom de /r/edc, sauf qu'eux, ils rajoutent aussi des armes à feux pour certains ('murica style...).
I use this utensil and this bowl. Both take up very little space in my backpack.
(Yes, I know the bowl is marketed for "pets" but it holds human food just fine and is collapsable. It meets my needs, even as a non-pet.)
I highly recommend the Light My Fire titanium spork.
Sort of tempted to get one of these sometime. Could probably just keep it in one of my cargo pockets even.
This is nice and I appreciate all the thought that went into it.
And yet, I find double-ended utensils annoying. If one end has good on it, it's awkward to use the other end.
I'd rather have this than this
I didn't really have any aviation related gear as a CFI. I had my headset which was way too expensive for my girlfriend to want to buy me, and I used a Jansport backpack from high school as my flight bag.
Once I got to the airlines my 'gear' increased immensely. Since I'm on the road a lot I have two of everything. Two of each toiletry, two razors, two phone chargers, two pairs of running shoes. I've forgotten things so many times that now I just keep one set of everything in my overnight bag, with a separate set at home and that way I can never forget anything on a trip.
For strictly flying related expenses I have an Aerocoast EFB bag, luggage works suitcase, nice sunglasses, a backup power brick, an anker 5 port charger, this incredibly expensive spork, some window shades, a pen recorder because passengers are idiots. Other than the sunglasses, I didn't need any of that as a CFI.
Light my Fire of Sweden's titanium spork. Got it at Natural Grocers for $11.79.
I really like the Light My Fire utensil. It's got great utility and even has a tiny serrated knife!
I backpacked through Russia and China a few years back, and due to the different terrains encountered I had to pack quite a heavy bag (I think my total was almost 17kgs and I hadn't brought anything obviously unnecessary even if it felt that way).
I think you should bring:
There was another poster /u/flyinglotus1983 who'd had problems finding deodorant and similar items in China, that wasn't an issue for me but it does require some adaptions, so it's easier to bring but still a PITA. I didn't bring a computer, I simply brought my iPhone and iPad, you if I were you I'd consider if you need a computer. If you don't that's a lot of weight you can save.
I would however suggest an e-book reader. Books are heavy and I had loads of time on trains and on busses with nothing to do but read. I read more books in those months that I did in the 2 years prior. It will set you back $100, but in my opinion it's a well worth investment.

I didn't... I think the mods did. So I'm going to sneak in and repost.
What are some of the staple gadgets and gizmos you have to maximize portability, versatility, durability, and price, time, and space efficiency?
Here's my list:
-Feiyue shoes. Crazy cheap, they take up no room, and they don't look out-of-place in most situations.
-Light My Fire titanium spork. This is the only eating utensil I ever use, and I take it everywhere.
-Pyrex 4-cup Bowl. As long as I'm just making food for me, this dish is the only one I need. It can withstand pretty much everything, and the microwave-friendly lid is awesome.
-Platypus roll-up water bottles. Carrying around an empty water bottle is really annoying. These guys hold lots of water, and only take up as much space as the volume of water they contain.
-Milk crates and heavy-duty Rubbermaid containers instead of furniture. The only thing you can really do with a chair is use it as a chair, and the only thing you can do with a chest of drawers is use it as a chest of drawers. Might as well combine the two -- and make them really light and portable to boot!
-Lifetime folding table. This is the closest thing I have to furniture.
-Coleman 4-in-1 Quickbed. It's a twin mattress, or two separate twin mattresses, or a king-size bed, it's comfortable as poo, and it folds up to nothing.
-Night Ize Gear Ties. I've used these for everything from coathangers to patching the handle on a neighbor's lawnmower to attaching the basket to my bike.
-MicroNet Microfiber Towel. Linen actually takes up a surprising amount of room. This guy works great, and folds away to nothing.
-Wellspring FlipNote. I've had my FlipNote for 5 years and it's been in my pocket every single day -- whether I was in South Africa, military combat training, business meetings, or going out with friends. It's an idea journal, an address book, a wallet, a writing surface, a pen... all kinds of stuff, and it's super-slim and super-durable.
-Bug-out bag. This isn't quite the one I have -- mine was about $60 and came with a CamelBak and tube inside -- but it's the right idea. When I was discharged from the military, I fit my entire life in this amazing backpack with room left over for the full CamelBak and hiked up and down the California coast for several days with no problems. The same backpack's still the only piece of luggage I use for travel, for class, for everything. It expands from normal backpack size to HUGE.
TL;DR If I can't pack everything I own into my tiny car in one hour, I have too much stuff.
(Edit: This list isn't everything I own, but it's the things that I figure would be useful to anyone.)
Light My Fire Titanium Spork. Excellent reviews, and it's made of frikin' titanium.
EDIT: Weighs only 17 grams, and costs only $11. Pretty impressive.
A Titanium Spork means never having to eat your icecream with a stick.
Salt/Pepper: In a small sandwich bag inside Ziploc bag (with other spices) then rubberband it together to prevent opening.
Oil: Small Nalgene bottles. Durable, seal very well, easy to clean.
Spatula: Silicone Spatula good to 500F (or more) similar to this but a bit lighter.
Utensils: Titanium spork and a plain-edge Spyderco knife I carry anyway.
Tongs: Lightweight tongs (metal).
I never carry a ladle. I eat/drink out of pot or pour/scoop with spatula.
*Edit for formatting
Yup! I hadn't either until I stumbled upon it. This guy.
I'm got an alcohol stove, GSI Tea Kettle, and a titanium spork. I take a little aluminum cup that I use for instant coffee/tea but I've been thinking about getting a sea to summit xmug because they pack down nice. One of my favorite things is a little table by cascade wild.

Do you mean, $10 light my fire spork.
I use this for a utensil http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001E7S5BO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
I use this for a bowl/plate http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007MJ9TGS/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&amp;colid=2KO70LRROUK7U&amp;coliid=I245GJ6QHYV8H1
I prefer the super spork from Light My Fire. It's actually double ended, instead of the real combo utensil.
Sporks are fun ideas, but then you realize you have a fork with stubby tines, and a spoon with slots in it. The super spork isn't ideal, but it is better. The titanium model also fixes the primary design flaw of the (lighter and cheaper) plastic version, which is the slight fragility of the middle section.
I bought one of these http://www.amazon.com/Light-My-Fire-Titanium-Spork/dp/B001E7S5BO I really like it. It's not uncomfortable to use unless you use a death grip to hold it.
I have a few in titanium, they're actually very nice to use camping or at home.
Solar chargers are great for a renewable source of energy when you're not certain you'll be near any outlets soon, their drawbacks are their weight and durability, though some new models are decent on both accounts.
I do; I have a plastic bag with some money in small to large bills and copies of my birth certificate, license, health insurance, and passport. This is in case I'm not at home, where my actual documents are all in my emergency binder.
Plastic sporks? Depending on the brand they may get brittle in the cold. My preferred utensil is the Light My Fire Titanium Spork, it's super light and durable.
I recommend nitrile for medical reasons, but I was talking more along the lines of work gloves.
Good idea! If I needed glasses I'd be super paranoid about not having a spare pair. One of the things that's impacted me lately are the stories from the Californian wild fires. There are a lot of first hand accounts about dealing with the smoke and how essential protecting your lungs and eyes is.
Based on my experience with the NeoAir Xtherm, I'd be a bit sketched out about using a NeoAir Xtherm or Xlite for a lengthy thru-hike. Mine started to leak air significantly after only a handful of uses, in such a way that it was impossible for me to repair it (even after getting out of the field). Fortunately, Cascade Designs replaced it for free, but mine is now reserved only for the trips that I really need that added warmth on to keep the wear and tear of the pad to a minimum. Perhaps someone who has carried a NeoAir on a thru-hike (or a lengthy section hike) can chime in, but again, I'd be hesitant to carry one myself on a longer trip.
I agree with /u/AussieEquiv that a 30 degree bag may or may not be sufficient, depending on the timing of your thru especially. Some details on when you plan to depart would be helpful, but I suspect in any case that you might want to consider at least carrying a liner- that way you can send it home once things have warmed up enough that you won't need it. Based on my experiences hiking Georgia in early spring, a 30 degree bag by itself would be a bit cold on at least some nights until some time in April. And even if you start in GA late, you may not finish in ME until late Summer/early Autumn, and accordingly you may still find that the 30 degree bag isn't warm enough in the northeast towards the end of your hike.
Similarly, I also agree with the comment about a thermal top in addition to the leggings. You'll likely be glad to have a full set of long underwear on at least some nights early into your thru-hike. I see you're planning on getting a light puffy which is good, but a light thermal top will be more comfortable for sleeping in.
And again, on another similar note, I would at least consider a hat liner and glove liners for occasional cold weather as well.
And yes, definitely ditch the town clothes (especially since they weigh nearly a pound). A spare t-shirt, underwear, and socks are OK, but you can otherwise just your cleanest hiking clothes (even if that includes your rain gear) while the rest are in the laundry.
I might suggest also carrying a pair of pants in addition to shorts- perhaps look into zipoff/convertible pants to keep weight down. You'll be glad to have pants on colder days, when hiking in grassy areas with ticks, etc.
Was the decision not to carry rain pants a conscious one? If so, what was the rationale behind it? Are you OK with soaking wet pants/shorts at the end of the day (and having to put those same soaking wet pants/shorts on the next morning)? I don't always bother with putting on rain gear myself when the weather is particularly warm (on hot and humid days you sweat just as much under it as you would get wet from the rain without it), but for a longer hike I think it's probably a good idea to have a full rain suit. You will have some cold, rainy days during which I think you'd be glad to have rain pants during in addition to a jacket.
I think if you have a spork with shallow fork tongs it will be OK. Something like the Sea to Summit Titanium Utensil Spork will be fine. Or you might look at the Light My Fire Titanium Spork, which has a fork/knife combo at the opposite end of the spoon (I'm a huge fan of this one, personally).
I hope this is helpful!
Personally, I usually have a titanium spork, chopsticks (you could find similar ones cheaper) and I usually have a knife of some sort on me (like a swiss army knife or something). in case I need to cut up something a little tougher than the spork could handle.
Titanium is nice because it's super light and antibacterial. If you look in an outdoor store you'll find lots of lightweight options that should be easy to carry/store in your car.
I use this for lunch every day. It's superb.
Here is another very solid axe that's even a little more budget friendly.
Consider this saw, it is amazing and inexpensive.
still just a spork
I have this one.
Tiny (near perfect) 16gb USB Flash Drive
Fenix E05 Flashlight
Pull-Apart Key Ring
I wasn't blown away by the organizer thing, but the rest are good.
Don't get the Light my fire Titanium Spork. While it's sturdy and has a good "hand feel", they made the stupid thin about a quarter inch too large to fit in the typical steel mess kit, even removing everything but the pot and outer bowl. You have to buy their stupid spork cover if you don't want crud all over your spork.
Creator of /r/Whatsinthebag and still in dire need of a new EDC backpack.
I haven't made any final decisions on it, but I've got dozens of great options so far.
Othar than that....Oh....
...just to name a few things...ya know...off the top of my head.
I also have the titanium version and it is great. Never once worried about breaking it. I typically am only using the spoon on dehydrated foodstuffs, but every so often I do "luxury" hikes where we bring steaks and whatnot and so a discrete fork is a boon. It's because of the fork that I think it's superior to the frequently recommended long spoon option. "Spork" is a total misnomer for the utensil since it is a fork and spoon on opposite ends, not a mutant amalgamation of the two.
Titanium spoons - they are the future.
there are titanium sporks
I've got both of these. Both are great.
I'd worry about the rubber edges. Rubber tends to wear out/flake after time and exposure to the elements, and it's definitely less durable than metal. Not really sure rubber is needed to scoop out every last bit of a meal either. The shape of the spoon end also seems less than optimal for eating. Is this product better than, say, this spork?
I got a titanium spork! I'm very excited about my spork. :)
These are the items I currently have in my pack:
Collapsible plate, bowl, and cup
single burner - there are probably better/smaller/lighter weight ones but this is just what I'm using at the moment
Titanium spork knife
I toss a sponge and a travel bottle of dish soap in the pot.
It'd be nice to see if other people have similar travel packs and what they use.
I introduce you the mighty spork.

Just finished my holiday shopping: Titanium Spork
Buy a Spork everybody should own a spork !
I use it all the time. Next time out is the 25th-27th.
edit: ya, if you're referring to the mess kit it's new this season. I still have two more things on the way as well. A Lite My Fire titanium spork and a folding grill.
I get what you're saying but I keep one these in my truck and one in my work bag; https://www.amazon.com/Light-my-Fire-Titanium-Spork/dp/B001E7S5BO/
And I'm not even a hippie! Just liked it well enough to stash a few where I'll need them.
