I'm looking at solar ovens right now.  How cool it would be to be able to still cook, even without a fire!

I found a neat little solar charger that charges AA batteries.

It can also charge USB devices.  I am outfitting my supplies using mostly AA devices so I can always have the use of them.  Also I have a few adapters that fit on AA batteries so they will work with other sizes like D-cell and C-cell.  It is pricey but worth a look. 
Endure... Honor requires nothing less.

That is nice. I have a solar kit, but it's not portable. This would be great for many things. During end times you could carry this with you on scouting runs, and not have to worry about your essential items dying on you. Items such as walkie talkies would greatly benefit from something like this. Nice find!
Stay informed, information is our first line of defense!

Aldwin, welcome to the Town Hall!
Thanks for your post and the idea. A solar battery charger! Methinks I will add this to the over-all Survival List. (One of the Topics here.)

The waterproof part is so important in a sleeping bag.  It could mean the difference between life and death, not just comfort and less comfort.

USMC Coyote Polartec Fleece Pullover


The fleece pullover shirt has long sleeves, a collar that converts to a mock turtleneck when the front opening slide fastener is completely closed. The slide fastener front opening extends from the top of the collar to the mid-chest. The slide fastener is backed with a throat protection flap at the neck and has a thong for ease of opening when wearing gloves. The base of the front opening is reinforced with a 1 x 1-1/2 inch piece of nylon webbing. A large hand warmer pocket extends from the lower chest area to the base of the pullover. To provide additional insulation and lower back protection, the back of the pullover is shaped to be longer than the front. All joining seams shall be flat locked and all, hems shall be cover stitched. This design provides a garment that is light in weight, low in bulk, has environmental protection, and comfort in movement.
The fleece pullover was developed to provide
the USMC with a multi-purpose, lightweight/low bulk, moisture transport, and insulation layer for the upper torso. The fleece pullover can be used during both garrison and field duties in cool to cold weather conditions. It can be worn under the camouflage utilities, used as a sleep shirt in the sleeping bag, and as an optional/additional insulation layer for the ECWCS.

Condition: New
