comment Bear spray vs. rifles against polar bears?
Even if the chance of shooting the bear is small (I have no idea), it’s still better than just standing there and realizing that the noise flare didn’t work out? Or did you mean to say that you would go for a noise flare + pepper spray combination?

comment Bear spray vs. rifles against polar bears?
The obvious downside to a noise flare in comparison with a big gun is that when the first attempt at scaring the bear is not successfull, with a rifle you still have a chance?

comment Do bag liners add the same warmth value to all sleeping bags?
What’s its weight? Unless it’s several hundred grams I doubt the insulation value. 15 degrees of difference is a lot.

I don’t think you can go wrong with any UIAA-certified climbing rope, can you?

comment Do bear-safe rules still apply in the winter?
Why is it misleading? Wikipedia says bears don’t hibernate and the quoted scientific study confirms that. In no part of the answer I imply that bears are not dangerous – if anything, my answer says that you should be careful around bears even in winter.

comment The outdoors, solitude and dealing with loneliness
Europe, and yes, there are no rational reasons to be nervous after sunset, but that doesn’t seem to help :)
