I just made the biggest non-housing, non-food expenditure I have made inthree years today.  I fully equipped myself with $533 of gear that I can use for hiking, camping, backpacking and mountaineering.  I mention these activities separately because I expect to be doing a lot of traveling soon and will need equipment for both car camping and for climbing mountains.  So what did I get?  I used to get great deals on highly reviewed stuff including:

3 – in – 1 Military – style Sleeping System

NEW CUSCUS 120L 8100ci Internal Frame Backpack Hiking Camp Travel Bag- Gray/Black

Big Agnes Air Core Pad (Long)

Mountain Axe Blue 75 by Omega Pacific

Contact Strap Crampons with ABS by Black Diamond

Eureka Apex 2XT 2-Person 3-Season Tent

Brunton Raptor Foldable Canister Stove with Piezo Ignition

I am excited to try out all of this equipment and hopefully it holds up to the very hard use it’s going to see!
