Space blanket
I do feel that a space bivy (not blanket) is important not just if your down bag or shelter gets damaged, but to give you a significant margin of error for weather. It functions effectively as a VB...

Just about anything crank-based has its own internal battery that charges while you crank. Eventually that battery will wear out and it'll be useless. Not sure if that's a concern, but you ...

Down
