      Is this an excerpt from House of Leaves? It worked its way into my head too effectively for me to finish it, but it has the cadence of the narrator.

      What do you consider "survival" gear? is just basic stuff to carry. But if you mean stuff like snares, fishing line, saws etc. on a hiking or camping trip that's just larp .

          LARPing is more of a mindset rather than something you can assign to items. A machete for example could be a practical tool in some situations. However, 90% of people don't need it and carry one for LARP purposes only. Here's a good rule of thumb, if you expect to use it and there isn't a more practical alternative, then it's not a LARP.

              Obviously you can’t carry everything together, but you could carry any of those items without larping if you have a use for it. It’s hard to imagine how you would be using a ghillie suit without larping though.

              >if you expect to use it and there isn't a more practical alternative, then it's not a LARP.
              So either I expect to get injured, or carrying a medical kit is a larp. Thanks for gracing us with your wisdom.

              You guys will knitpick anything. Your first aid kit should be able to deal with injuries that could reasonably happen.

          Also, there’s nothing wrong with larping if you’re having a good time. It’s fine to carry a Crocodile Dundee knife even though you have no real need for it.

          I was a canadian ranger for over 5 years, basically a professionally larper. I have expertise in this. These are larp tier:
          >fixed knife, ~20cm blade
          A small folding knife will do the same work of a huge Rambo knife 99% of the time. The only things a big knife does better than a little knife is things that other tools are much better at. An opinel won't batony chop chop wood, open a can of beans, or stab a hobo as well as a rambo knife, but if you have to do those tasks regularly there are better tools for the job.
          >actual pots and pans
          Anything you can't cook in a cup or on a stick is probably better off left at home. Our patrol always brought normal pots and pans, but we always had an ATV, Snowmobile, truck, boat or helicopter to do the heavy lifting, you probably don't.
          >portable grill
          Same as above, you can nig rig something easy enough.
          >cordage
          The only time it is a larp is when it's coiled in a bracelet or on a knife handle, it is infinitely useful. Learn knots and use them regularly. it is a skill that expires quickly. An example: 3 separate very intelligent, blue collared men forgot how to do a clove hitch, and the fisherman that definitely knew was out sick. Protip: the best knot is actually just wrapping around a tree a few times and tying off the slack, friction does all the work for you and doesn't weaken the rope/cordage like a regular knot.
          >firesteel
          Look into your heart, you all know it to be true. I still carry one anyways, but I hope I will never have to use one in earnest.
          >zippo lighter
          Terrible lighters, overly heavy, expensive, and get mogged by cheap bics and USB lighters. I won't think you're a LARPer if you carry one, I'll just think you're a chain smoker.
          >FAK but it's complete with tourniquets etc
          Depends on the context, if you're a yuropoor with no predators or drunk hunters, you probably won't need one. It's better to err on the side of caution anyways, first aid kits won't be larps unless you have the Punisher skull on it.

            >machete

            >e-tool
            You don't need to dig trenches on a day hike. They're such a big larp even the professional larpers made fun of me for bringing one. If you're just going to dig a hole to poop in, the aluminum or titanium scoops are a much better option.
            >lantern
            If it's the heavy gas powered ones, yes that is a larp, if it's a light, collapsible LED one it's not.
            >survival manual
            If it's a digital copy on your phone, there's no reason not to take it, but taking a physical book outdoors is kind of silly.
            >flint and steel
            Even more of a larp than fire steel.
            >sharpening stone
            If you have to sharpen your knife during a multi day outing, you should probably cut back on scraping your knife against rocks and hobo bones.
            >flares like the one in The Thing
            Very bright and can start a fire in a pinch, but heavy and expensive. I don't think a single sound minded person takes them on hikes.
            >glowsticks
            Light tech has really come far in the past 20 years, glowsticks are completely obsolete, don't bring a plastic stick full of weird chemicals into the woods, maybe it's worth keeping one for emergencies, but don't use them regularly.
            >binoculars
            If you're just bird watching or a pervert scoping out chicks it's fine, but you don't really need one for a hike.
            >ghillie suit
            The larpiest thing ever, you don't need it unless you're trying to kill someone.
            >machete
            If you're hiking on an established trail you don't really need it. If you're a psychopath that doesn't use trails you probably aren't worried about hippie hipsters calling you a larper.
            I'm not saying don't get any of those things, or you're LARPer for having them, (I have most of the things on this list), just that you probably don't need them for the average weekend hike. Man I miss my boomerwaffen frens, too bad Canada got so gay.

              If you think zippos are cool because they engraved your favorite car brand or you tricked them into engraving a horribly racist meme that is based, but it doesn't mean it's the best option.

                Very useful for some situations. If you're making a fire or shelter and can spare the weight, take one. Otherwise a small folding saw can do most of the same jobs.

                >small folding saw >depends, are you building a shelter?
                Retarded take. Small folding saw is the best all-round tool for processing firewood, and you can also use it for clearing trails and blocked waterways.

                >water bladder >are you in afghanistan?
                Another retarded take. Water bladders are useful in hot/humid conditions when you're on the go

                This is just dumb. Me and my girlfriend always bring a whistle in case we get split up. If you're not on a well marked trail it's very easy to get lost innawoods. Also useful if you break a leg or some shit and can't move. It goes under the same category as a medkit or space blanket. You don't expect to use it but if you ever need it, you'll be glad you have it.

                >sharpening stone >larp
                Something to keep your blades sharp on a long outing is a really good idea, especially if you're going to be using to process fish or game. Nothing worse than trying to filet a fish or skin an animal with a dull knife.

                redundant here in norway. no trails to clear and firewood is breaking dead and dry sticks and branches over your knee

                never seen anyone use one even in 30+ c and again, norway. there's a drinkable stream or waterfall in sight anywhere you go

                yeah hunters here usually bring a full set of knives plus sharpener in a folding pouch. as an fisherman i bring a freshly sharpened bait knife and a fillet knife and the edges last for weeks

                The sorts who think they're 2 cool 4 school to think about their safety are the ones who turn into spoopy stories about alien abductions and bigfoot snatchings. In reality it was just some guy who stumbled down a cliff in some remote hiking area, broke his back, and died after 3 agonizing days laying in the same spot; his corpse subsequently consumed by wildlife. If only he had something louder than his feeble voice to alert others in the area of his presence.

    Whether I'm going on a day hike, or a multi-day outing, I always carry a rain pancho that can double as a tarp, a small first aid kit, and a possibles bag that contains Dave Canterbury's 10 C's + 2 high caloric granola bars. It's 3 pounds worth of gear that can save my life if things went south for whatever reason.

    So it's similar to OP's picture, except less gay and better. A battery is never an survival tool unless it's going into a satellite transciever beacon that will call S&R to come rescue your dumb ass.

    Anyway, since real men employed by wilderness-oriented agencies here in the US are in ever-shorter supply these days due to the modern sociopolitical situation (as well as the increasing numbers of diversity-hire women who rarely agree to leave air-conditioned buildings, a different breed than women who entered the services back in the day), coupled with the ever-increasing amount of morons who go outdoors completely ignorant of how to cope with wildlands since all they do is poke at their mobile phones all their lives, a lot of states are talking about CHARGING you for getting rescued.

    LMAO! The rescuers don't want to go outside, and the people who do need rescuing are dramatically increasing in number because no one touches grass anymore. Karma's a bitch.

    I don't visit 4chan, there are articles about this issue going back to the early 2000s, back before wrongthink was so heavily censored. So don't get lost.

        The flare gun on my list wasn't just a meme, and isn't just for signaling.

        Do you know what else starts fires in wet conditions? Stormproof matches, also on my list.

      It works perfectly with zippo flints and wick. Sadly I cannot post a picture because my carrier is range banned. Functionally it seems to be the same as a "slim" zippo but please elighten me on why it's better.

        Biggest upside for me is, that you can take out the fuel tank while its burning and use it like a match, this is great for lighting campfires. The fuel also seems to evaporate somewhat slower and the Imco always catches on the first strike while you may have to fiddle a bit with a zippo. I personly use the Streamline 6800. Biggest upside for Zippos is, is that they are sturdier in construction.

            if you do that make shure to extinguish it by suffocating the flame inside the lighter body and dont blow it out, that way the wick lasts longer.
            also works amazing for lighting candles, where you would normally burn your hands with a BIC. In the Flint assembly on the back of the lighter there is a spot where you can put a second flint.

    Also I think mine is from the 1960s. I had given it a vinegar bath to take off all the rust, scrubbed it a bit with a toothbrush, put flint etc. in and it works perfectly. I know that lighters are a simple thing but I love this endlessly functional stuff.

      Is it actually a good buy or so-so?

        I never go out without one tbh. It's a great backpack frame, wind shield for cooking, torso wrap when cold, improvised pillow, space to put your things on, kneeling mat for starting fire or repairing a bike and of course you sit on it

    And I do think it's missing shit, most notably something to cook with, like a steel canteen or something.

    a whistle isn't enough anyhow, if you risk not being found for days and venture outside of phone coverage i'd suggest a sat phone or sat beacon as the golden standard. use the whistle so rescue team can pinpoint your location

      You can also just tell someone where you're going so if they don't hear back from you they'll send S&R to look for you. Of course satellite would be the better option if you can afford it
