Recently I introduced myself into John Muir, after a couple readings I discovered his trail in California, then I watched Mile, Mile and A Half. In the documentary they talk how hard is to get a permit to hike it which as an Europoor it was pretty strange to find out that you actually need such thing to hike there. But even though I get it's to preserve it, how do they enforce such rule? What's stopping someone from cutting through the woods and hiking it? Has any of you burgers ever done it? Thanks.

I know you guys aren't /fa/, but most of these jacket choices seem to come from /out/ brands to do /out/ things so I figured you guys would be much more useful for this. I'm trying to choose between several jackets/coats, and was hoping to get opinions on which would be best. These choices are all expensive as shit, so let's assume money is no object.

1. pic related, https://www.fortisclothing.co.uk/shop/waterproof-falklands-coat/

I've read mostly good things about the brand. They used to be called Country Covers, and were known for making a version of the windproof smock that was apparently pretty good. They don't say what materials were used for the outer coat, just call it "ripstop" and say that it's waterproof and windproof. I'm thinking it's 50/50 poly cotton with a waterproof dropliner and maybe some kind of spray-on coating, but I could be wrong. It's kind of hokey, but I like that it has a drop-down waterproof seat. It's also got a shitton of pockets which I regard as a plus. It's insulation layer is also a separate jacket itself, so you can wear the outer layer alone, the inner layer alone, or both depending on the weather.

2. Swarzi Wapiti, https://www.swazi.co.nz/shop/mens/wapiti-coat/

I've read a lot of good reviews about this coat, and almost nothing but praise for the brand in general. Most people seem to choose their Tahr anorak, but I think it and this coat are made of the same material, which is some brand-exclusive deal. It's got side vents, which might be useful, and can be rolled up completely into the hood. Again, mostly hokey features but kind of cool. The only downside is that this coat only seems to have 3 pockets, which is S H I T. sure, the 2 on the front are pretty big, and the internal map pocket is pretty deep from what I've seen, but it's pretty mediocre compared to all the other coats.

cont'd.

How's the sizing on Patagonia jackets, specifically the fleece ones?
>>
>>1121325
Depends, they seem to have 2 lines. One of technical gear that fits pretty true to size (outer shells are usually a bit bigger to allow for stuff underneath and the arms are massive on their older hardshells to allow for full range of motion) . The other line is more casual and the sizing runs way large imho (this includes the synchilla)
>>
>>1121332
>>1121325
Their regular fit synchilla fits just like the mountain hardwear toasty twill, which is kind of a more athletic fit. This is in contrast to the better sweater which has a more generous cut. I wear a medium synchilla but a small better sweater.

No clue if OP is even here, but the answer is no.

Seriously, copper isn't even at a high price right now and most of the people who scrap copper just cut off cords from broken appliances and while that gets you a cent or two, a lot of cords aren't even that much copper anymore and you waste your time doing so.

What is the best water bottle for going /out/?

Thinking about getting this 38 oz stainless steel nalgene

I was given several of those by the Camelbak rep at work. Both started leaking within a month of just kicking around my truck.
>>
(I am same guy as >>1119430 )
After making that post on Saturday, I impulse bought the stainless steel nalgene off amazon and, to my surprise, it came the very next day-- Sunday morning.

Had a few days to use it instead of my old orange Nalgene, and already a big fan.

Pros:
* Really solid material. It's well made, not worried about a drop resulting in a dent or anything. Every other metal waterbottle I've ever had ends up very dented in just a few days, not going to be the case here.
* Water tastes like water again. Hard to describe it because water is so tasteless, but it's definitely got a different taste than my old nalgene and it tastes more like water out of a glass than before.

Cons:
* The strap for the cap loosens up pretty easily. I worry that it'll fall off in time. Not a big deal.
* It's heavier than my old bottle. No big deal.

I'd buy it again.

Get the sister company version, 321 strong on amazon. Over half the price and essentially the very same thing. I got the 40oz version for 16 bucks.

I got a hydro flask 24 oz version and it lost its vacuum after four months and rei refused to stand by their warranty/exchange. After a year I sweet talked one of the employees and she switched it for me.

So I'm a NY resident, and like every other year I missed registry, they fill up super quick here and it's annoying because there's never enough.

I read up on the NY hunting website and it says that NY license is honored in all 50 states, and all 50 states license are honored in NY, so I got an idea. I figure I can take the PA 100% online hunters course (website says you don't need to be a PA resident to do so) and then hunt in NY with a PA license.

Will this work? Do I fall under different rules with this license? Will NY tags cost more if I have an out of state license?

Thanks
>>
>>1120584
>license honored out-of-state
Do you mean hunter's education certificate?

Because no state is going to honor another state's hunting license because they get no revenue from it.
>>
>>1120641
This.
Most state agency's also charge a much larger licence fee for out of staters.
For example in my native Michigan ab resident can expect to pay $20 for a deer tag, a non resident will pay $110.

feels bad, in NZ they actively encourage hunting of deer and boar. All you need a gun licence and permit from the department of conversation if you're in a state-owned park.

Winter is at the doors,
but I'm in southern europe so I don't feel like shelling out for proper winter gear to ride.

I'm thinking about something I can use day to day too
>merino wool base layer
>t-shirt + hoodie/sweater
>Sailing jacket 70-80€
>something to protect legs from wind and rain

Do you think merino is better than those syntetic thermal base layer?
I bought one for skiing and it does its job, but it's not great.
Also do you think a sailing jacket would hold the rain riding on a highway?
they're rated for 2/4 hours of pretty heavy rain and isulated with pile wich is a plus.

I'm open for suggestions.

Stop right there! buy a heated vest. It'll cost you less than 70 euro. The batteries are rechargeable, and last about 3 hours. It is worth it.

I used to ride my motorcycle in the winter so long as the temp was above 5c. Wore a ski jacket over a heated vest, and was warm enough. Had to do a 2 hour trip at 5c at night with just that set up. I had done it before when it was 10c without the heated vest, just more layers, and I thought I was gonna die.

For pants I used shark skin soft shell pants. They are cheaper than jeans (20~ euro), and combined with merino wool base layer, your legs will actually be warm. On my 2 hour trip I used merino wool base layer, and these pants and I was fine. Used the pants in a heavy downpour while riding once (didn't check the weather) and my feet were soaked, so was my upper body, but my legs and buttocks were dry. Wow. The issue is you NEED a belt with it, as the pop button closure is cheap, and will pop open under it's own weight. I would trust these pants in a 30mph crash (crashed at 20mph in the rain once and they didn't have a scratch). Plus they're CHEAP!

>t. only transportation in winter was a motorcycle guy
