So what is one piece of gear you bring on backcountry hunts that is out-of-the box for most people, but that you think is totally awesome?

I'll go first.

Yup, did that last trip! Used my silnylon clothes stuff sack and brought a tiny dropper bottle of concentrated camp soap. Felt great to have clean clothes after a few days. Weighs almost nothing....
