Gear I like:
Very cool titanium trowel made by QiWiz http://www.qiwiz.net/trowels.html which is both very light yet strong. It takes almost no space in a pack. The one I have pictured above is the Big Dig model.
Intended primarily for digging catholes to defecate* in, it has other uses as well. I find it useful for moving coals around the campfire.
And QiWiz is a great guy, too, who makes other fine quality gear. I use his wind screens now for all my pots.
*(Alas the English language lacks a neutral descriptive term for this common activity. “Shit” is offensive; “take a dump”, vulgar; “use the bathroom”, euphemistic; “go no.2”, juvenile; “defecate”, medicinal.)
