BSA and embroidery

BSA as in Boy Scouts of America, not British Small Arms. A very nice little compass - as Pluvialis can attest, I overuse GPS on the road - but, honestly, don't rely on it much in the woods. Map and compass, yay. The embroidered bag made me think of Central Asia (Pazyryk-y) - it's a tiny bit too short to hold telemetry transmitters, but I'll figure something out. Both came from Re-Enhabit's etsy store.

That's one of the places we're trying to go with neoleatherstockingism.

Ripple Soles

Not close (what I remember and covet from when the old man was installing analog process control computers in steel mills was a black ripple-soled Derby), but cool nevertheless. "...forged an enviable reputation through the 1960s with tribal groups adopting its distinct look as a form of rebellion."* is especially intriguing.
