comment Pitching a tent in the rain?
@Aravona Spilling a drink onto the groundsheet possibly might not proof the groundsheet's water-proofness. A groundsheet that does not leak out a puddle of water from the inside may start to leak if you apply a high pressure on wet ground, for example by kneeling in the tent. In this case, you may suddenly get wet knees from the water that was forced from the wet ground through the sheet.

Here at stackexchange we want to keep information together, i.e. we prefer to have at least some explanatory text about what will be found behind the link. The hint "just google for x" might provide a different answer now than it may in two years or even bring up different results for different users.

Nope, I don't mind, go ahead. Everything that makes the text more readable is good...

comment How well does solar recharging work when strapped to the backpack?
Two additions to your very comprehensive answer: a slightly cloudy day with lots of stray light might be better than a cloudless day as the panel orientation will have much less influence. Another thing to optimize your yield is to use your breaks: whenever you stop long enough to take your backpack down, put it into the sun with the panel oriented as optimal as possible.
