Not everything should cost an arm and a leg. Post any inexpensive stuff you’d recommend that just flat works.

I’ll start with a Mora 711. ~4.5 oz with sheath, easy to sharpen (and resharpen in field), and the textured rubberized grip is fantastic. Easy to grip and your hand doesn’t tire after several hours of boning.

$15



Heavy duty window shrink wrap - makes a great meat tarp or even a groundsheet. With some duct tape you could probably rig an emergency shelter.

6 oz for a 5’ x 10’ sheet, can be cut to size.

$7.94

Wuudi cook set and Etekcity stove, both from Amazon. About 30 bucks total. Cook set does what it's supposed to, easy to clean up, handles stay cool enough to grab bare handed. Stove fires up quickly and burns evenly. I did tweak the feet a little so the pot sits flat and not wobble. Stove and fuel nests inside the set. Not for the ultra light crowd, however.

-Military surplus cold weather boots. Aka “Mickey Mouse boots,” aka Vapor Barrier boots. For extreme cold Static hunting or ice fishing I haven’t found better. Edit: you can find pairs for less than $50

$6.68 BSR stove from Ebay and $4 aluminum cup from Walmarts camping section. A small isobutane canister, the BST stove and a Bic lighter fit in the cup. Weighs half of what my jetboil does and boils 2 cups of water in 4 minutes.Screen Shot 2020-02-11 at 9.17.00 AM.png

Victorinox curved, semi flex, boning knife.

These are good knives but check out the Mundial knives they're about 2/3 the price and seem to be about equal quality.

If you cut off the top half of a one gallon milk jug it makes a great, lightweight wash basin. My cookset and reflectix cozy nest inside perfectly.

Haha. I don’t happen to be a homosexual. In case you’re foreign to the term: In the military if you invest in your own equipment or over-think gear you will often be referred to as a gearqueer.
