comment What are the vitamin considerations for extended backpacking
You can't carry eggs and fresh vegetables and supply 15 days worth of food without the weight being a serious burden. Tuna pouches have about the same amount of water, but less weight because of the foil instead of can.

comment Should I get trekking poles for snowshoeing, or stick with ski poles?
If you're in the mountains then trekking poles offer a huge advantage in that they can be adjusted for uphill/dowhnill portions of the trail, otherwise ski poles are usually just fine.

Oddly enough I have aluminium ski poles that I've bent by falling on them, but my carbon trekking poles have never bent.

comment What to look for in a quality tarp?
Pro-tip: pre-attach a minimum number of ropes or bungies to your tarp and you'll save time when you need it and not realize you forgot the rope or bungies.

Their down parka seems serious and legit, not sure about the rest of the stuff.

comment What are some ways/devices that I can use to charge my batteries in the wilderness?
pro-tip: lithium AA/AAA batteries weigh about 35% less than regular alkaline batteries, and usually last longer. Some headlamps warn against using lithium.
