Hike with some new gear

Post by Canadian Guy » Sun Mar 27, 2016 10:17 am

Got outside for a hike of about 5-6 Km in a local Conservation area, weather was sunny and around 8 C (46 F). Went off trail through the woods and stopped to sit and use some newly acquired kit.

Emberlit Stainless Steel collapsible wood stove (a nice Christmas gift I received), this is the second time using it and I am impressed in how easy it is to get it going and keep going. On top is the Snow Peak Titanium Mini Solo pot that I have had for quite a while, great piece of kit! I boiled up some water and made Hemlock tea (thanks goes to Woods Walker for getting me drinking the stuff):

Kifaru E & E in Wolf Gray colour, recently acquired along with a Kifaru Pointman Backpack which it docks onto. I have it set-up to carry all the small pieces of kit one would use out hiking or just out in the woods and includes "emergency survival" items. I'll have to post a review on it. Well made and makes for a great small pack with everything you need for a short day hike, so far very impressed with it but still trying to figure out how it will work into my gear set-up.

Sat and had my Hemlock tea and then headed back as the sun was setting.

I am interested how you rig up the E&E. Will that replace your belt/fanny bag kit?

Yes, I did replace the "belt/fanny bag" I had been using with the E & E pack. Testing it out to see how exactly I'll utilize it but am envisioning it being used to carry small items that I would carry for outdoors hiking/wilderness/survival either on its own as a daypack or attached to a larger pack for longer outings.

The SS Emberlite is a good stove! I got one. In fact I misplaced my Core 4 so will be cracking it out again till that's either found or a new one is purchased. Glad I kept it.

I'm liking it, seems to be easy to light and keep going. Boils up water quick enough. Stainless is a bit heavier then Titanium but it was a gift so I can't complain :)

You should check out the Solo Stove. My wife bought me one and I was amazed how fast it lights and how quickly it heats up.
