This Killer Tent Weighs Almost Nothing and Fits In Your Nalgene Bottle

Lightweight tent

A lightweight tent is great, and we’re always trying to find the lightest, most compact solution when we’re hiking or motorbiking, right? This one fits inside a nalgene bottle.

From the manufacturer: “Ultralight Adventurists will appreciate the Specialist™ shelters: the interior space and comfort of a tent with a lower overall weight and more compact size than many bivis.

“They are the lightest fully enclosable shelters in their class. Seam sealed throughout, the Specialists™ offer superior waterproof properties while also maintaining impressive breathability to manage condensation effectively.”

Safety Pins Are a Fisherman's Best Friend

What a great, fast fix.

If you ever break an eye when you’re out fishing, here’s an easy fix.

Think you might start to put fishing pins with your tackle, or maybe put one on your cap (but be careful)?

Here’s another use for them, too, as a sort of tackle box string for fish hook organizing.
