    Wittnauer USAAC/USAAF survival kit pocket compass from 1941. I recently bought this from the Salvation Army. My wife confiscated it. I won't see it again until Christmas. Didn't even get a chance to clean it up. I was lucky to just get the pics.

    canada goose langford (for street) and expedition (for the woods)...the expedition i like all the pockets to stash my stuff in but it might be too hardcore for my environment (not to mention it's crazy heavy) :eek:

    if we don't get hit with another polar vortex soon i might have to exchange it for another langford or a patagonia frozen range parka (specs states it's waterproof not just resistant)...anyone have experience with that patagonia? i know they also have the grade vii (packed to the max with down) but my hi-loft's dwr let me down last winter and needed a hard shell over it to keep the rain off (and i want a more durable fabric resistant to brushing against shrubs and stuff) so i'm wanting a more waterproof fabric to begin with.

    pair it up with an insulated pants and boots and you'll be set!

    i'm a very loyal patagonia fan so it saddens me to say there really isn't anything they have that's comparable to canada goose's expedition (will test their frozen range parka vs. cg's langford eventually though)...patagonia's high-end high-loft down parkas is purely designed for mountain climbers...nothing really for us woods bums that require withstanding the brush against the occasional thorn bushes or branches and stuff.

    Went Goodwill thrift store hopping on Black Friday. Picked up an RTIC lowball mug for 30 cents and an enameled camp mug for 99 cents.

    it was 2+ years ago that i switched to a hammock setup and sold my supertarp. this no snow/always raining weather made me miss how a stove minimizes wood used to keep it going.

    All of my latest gear is climbing related and power tools... lol. A nice pair of 2019 Petzl Nomics on Black Friday, some fleece garments (Power Stretch Pro) , Milwakee battery drill and impact... nothing I could relate to this thread!

    I've been hitting up all the local pawnshops, thrift stops, and local auctions for smalls to fill out kits. Binos, stoves, saws, multi-tools, cookware and so on. About $100 so far, but so much good, quality gear on the cheap.

    Most of my new gear has been photography related in the last couple of months. The last hiking item I purchased was a small compass to keep in my usual carry bag/pack on hikes just in case and I leave the larger compasses at home. I mostly need a nudge or confirmation on my directions and this provides that. I really like the National Geographic topo maps that are available for the areas I tromp since they have the trails marked. I view them as kind of expensive, but they last.

    That’s a great idea with the Paracord. I will have to do that with mine.
