"Being Creative" – Cheap Outdoor Gear

"Being Creative" – Cheap Outdoor Gear

Yet another example showing that enjoying the outdoors does not necessarily need to be an expensive endeavor. In fact, in many instances gear and equipment can be acquired and/or made for cheap… or even free. This video illustrates this belief by utilizing items found at a local thrift store to make a durable, lightweight cook kit at a total cost of under 4 bucks. This DIY cook set contains:
– Stainless Steel Cook Pot (3 1/2 cup capacity)
– Custom DIY Cook Pot Lid
– Nested Stainless Steel Cup with Lip Guard (1 cup capacity)
– Homemade Double-Wall Alcohol Stove
– 2oz. Fuel Bottle
– Windscreen
– Ultra Lightweight Stuff Sack
By simply using a bit of creativity and ingenuity this concept can easily be adapted to pretty much any type of gear for nearly any outdoor activity, whether it be backpacking, hiking, bushcraft, etc…..

* This video is in response to a “tag” by YouTube user BushcraftGeek. He issued the challenge of finding items at a local second hand store, garage sale, or even your own basement, and then using a bit of creativity to “re-purpose” them in a manner other than their original intended use… all for as inexpensively as possible. I’d love to see what you come up with my friends!
