In the Sandbox we often have some different requirements for gear- riding gear, camping gear, etc. With lots of noobs often asking about what to buy and what not to buy I figured we can lump everything into one thread. I myself am a certified gear whore, and will often look for new ways to do the same thing I currently do but do it better, cheaper, with more or less stuff, lighter, more sustainable, less hassle, more robust, and so on. An example is the Boilite stove that I’ve been using since the pre purchase option was available. It cooks great, uses scrap wood, charges stuff, and has been rock solid. Here is is in Joshua Tree: Another is the much loved and abused Kili Air. This jacket has been my go to for longer than I can recall, and has never let me down (or been washed) You can see it’s faded to a nice purple where it was once black. The Hennessy Hammocks are yet another fine example of quality kit that’s served well. For temps above mid 60’s at night there is no finer way to sleep in The Woods This one man tent however can suck a bag of dicks So there’s a start. Whatcha got that works, and what got gong’d right off the bat?
