Q: What's the worst piece of equipment you've bought?
Let's tell our hiking and camping secrets: What do you consider to be the worst thing you have ever put on yourself or into a backpack? Maybe it's junk, or something way too heavy that you did NOT need. I think I'd have to say my worst is the first aid kit I used to carry when I was 15-16 years old. It probably weighed 3 pounds and could definitely have handled more than 10 people for a month. Aspirin? Check, butterfly strips? Check, 50 bandaids? Check! Stitch kit? For sure! Now I have learned to stream line to this ultralight kit (see here: http://www.vingle.net/posts/676553) What are your biggest regrets?
