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.

These are pretty effective for ventilation while keeping insects out:

The weathertech rain guards work well when the issue is rain rather than bugs. With these installed you'll be able to crack all your windows even in the rain. In combination with a fan or two to promote air circulation and you'll be in decent shape:

Also, having recently done a similar build out in the back of a subaru outback, consider as an option simply sleeping on the floor of the vehicle. 2/3rds of the floor get reserved for your mattress, while the remaining 1/3 is used for cargo (along with all foot wells, the passenger seat, and also a cargo box on the roof). I originally considered the raised sleeping platform with storage underneath, but in a crossover every inch you raise your sleeping platform is an inch of headroom you lose. I found it worth the trade-off of letting go of a little cargo space to make my sleeping space more comfortable. With a cargo box on the roof you should have plenty of room.

If you haven't already run across it, the YouTube channel "SUV RVing" has a lot of great info for suv and crossover build outs.

Is that bottom rectangular part attached to what you're holding? It looks like a windshield sun shade along with a baby carseat sun cover.

u/sslytherin · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

I have tinted windows and we use one of these. It's not the most attractive thing on my car but it gets the job done. I also don't find my baby's vision is obstructed that much.

Warm weather resident here. I've never heard of anyone removing the car seats for weather reasons BUT it is common to protect the car seats from getting too hot for the baby's sake.

Passenger sun shades and blankets over the car seat prevent baby from getting burned on the exposed plastic and harness. I've seen this type of cover a few times during the summer heat waves as well.

Edit: changed link to amazon, in case you wanted to buy it

u/thesongbirdy · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

We were given this one as a gift. Lasted four months before the suction cup devices broke in half during a car ride and freaked out the baby.

We now have these in our car and they are working out pretty well. It has been hot here and they are still sticking up with no problem at all. You get three in one pack, which is real nice.

u/guinnessmom · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I bought mine on amazon.

We bought something like this because here in Texas it gets dang hot.

5.) [A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it!] ( Well, I haven't read this one yet, but I read her last book, Me Before You, a few months ago and LOVED it.

( Because Colin Firth.

10.) [Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain.] ( Well, if I had to survive on my WL items alone, I would surely die. BUT, I figure this could at least come in handy to cook over open fires and it is the most weapon-like thing on my list.

12.) [One of those pesky Add-On items.] (

13.) [The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why?] ( Maybe not my dream item, but the most expensive for sure. My husband and I love biking, but right now I'm sidelined since we have a 1 year old. This would let us all go!

When I lived in GA and NC I saw these a lot:

u/WaffleFoxes · 2 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

You're doing the Lords work.

Similarly for baby showers: I always get car seat sun covers. Here in Phoenix nobody realizes what a joy it is to put your kid in the car and not scald them. $8 and I still use mine near daily 4 years after my kid was born.

Window baby shade

Blasting AC for a few minutes before loading LO into car

Place large ice pack in baby seat when baby ISN'T in there

Reflective seat cover $4

The last one is highly dependent on your car setup but it's the Noggle $47 hose to extend from the vent to the car seat.

u/reddilada · 1 pointr/camping

Something like this shade. Just picked at random so not a recommendation. Search for car bug screen. They have ones that have little awnings and some that are pretty plain. They basically slip over the window frame. I've heard of people just getting a screen at Lowes and sticking it on with magnets. Napier makes kits that fit completely over the back hatch. Some people like them as it gives you a bit more room, but not very stealthy and at that point you might as well just pitch a tent.

Exped makes nice mats, but size will probably be an issue. Your best bet is to hit a hardware store and get some bulk memory foam that you can cut to fit.

Two people in a Vibe is going to be cozy. Remember you have to put all your stuff somewhere while you are stretched out. You can pick up a regular old Insta-tent for less than $100 at Walmart and throw in a nice double air mattress or cots and call it a day. If it's raining or you want to stay a bit somewhere it will be loads more comfortable. The insta-tents go up and down really quick.

u/flantagenous · 1 pointr/breakingmom

Yep, we have this cover and it helps a lot! It's only $4. You could also just use any towel or blanket, really, so any metal bits aren't directly in the sun.
