So in an effort to clear out some space, generate cash and get rid of stuff I dont use anymore I find myself with the bare bones of outdoor equipment. I have to admit I havent been able to get out much (camping wise) in the past couple of years but feel a little ‘nervous’ of not having enough gear to get out with should the opportunity arise. So whats left.
Blacks Octane 1 – bought for £30 5 years ago and kept as my absolute emergency solo tent. Used in non extreme conditions only thus far so untried in a hoolie! 1.7kg, single hoop and a nice garish red to boot.
ULA conduit – bought second hand for £40 and an absolute pearler of a pack. Tough, light and plenty of features. Used and abused and still going strong
£20 Pocket rocket for gas cooking and £5 pepsi can stove for meths. No worries with either plus a titanium mug
10 year old Alpkit AD500 down bag and closed cell mat
Montrail Fairhaven shoes
Montane Prism and Atomic mid and out layer jackets
Therefore for the really basic stuff still an ok list of things although all now 5 years or older (apart from the Fairhavens). Still much better than I thought and just goes to show that getting rid of stuff is a good thing but do save yourself enough to still get out. All I need to do now is get out 😉
