    What's your favorite piece of equipment or gadget?

    What's your favorite piece of equipment or gadget near or below $50 on Amazon. Got a gift card burning up my pocket.

    I got a little orbit black diamond lantern I hang from inside my hammock ridgeline at night....its pretty nice. KInda pricey for what it is....but its been tough so I guess I can't complain about that.

    UCO candles. They range from 18 bucks to 48 for a fancy limited edition leather wrapped one. I have a couple of these including the fancy leather wrapped. Love these things. I keep one in my bag.

    MSR has redone the Pocket Rocket. If you need a stove:

    I'd say, if you're in the market for a headlamp upgrade, the Thrunite TH10 is in that price range.

    +1 There are few gadgets or pieces of gear that I use more often and appreciate more than a high quality headlamp.

    Morakniv Bushcraft Black is running ~$45 on Amazon, though I've seen it on sale for cheaper.

    Could also pick up a pocket bellows, which could potentially be the best $12 you've ever spent.

    My absolute favorite piece of gear is my Gorillatorch Switchback. It is a lantern that converts to a headlamp. Sadly, they are no longer being manufactured, but are still available on Amazon.

    My favorite piece of gear is a sheet of 1/8" upholstery foam that is about 31/2 by 5 feet. It's great to lay on by the fire, spread out below the hammock, rest stops, etc. it weighs very little yet provides decent insulation.
