comment What do you do if the fire does get “out of control”?
In my experience, stomping a fire has much much larger effect than pissing on it.

Have you had any success with large apertures in low-light conditions?

comment Rapid backpack readying
@Steed, They all work to an extent. Problems with the first one include: 1) For longer trips, a larger pack is needed, involving moving all the equipment 2) I use the backpack also when biking in or around the city, so it has to be light AND include bike-specific equipment. 3) The same heavy survival kit, which I bring when going in the wild, is not quite suitable for 1 day hikes. Why would I need extra food, extra knife, extra bandages, space blanket etc.

comment How do I self arrest without an ice axe?
I wonder if striking with elbow in order to break the hard icy cover of the snow would be a good idea.

comment Putting in contact lenses when outdoors
@LBell, I think your comment is the best answer here! Monthly contacts are great, and I am not aware of any disadvantages to them. Just new technology at the same price :)

comment Apart from down, is there any outdoor material that should not be stored stuffed?
Furthermore, I have heard that membranes can "break" if folded to the extreme, hence don't wash in the washing machine at high speed.

comment What characteristics should I look for in a good torch/flashlight?
Yep, I do not like being blinded, so I strive to not blind others.
