You mean you don’t want to give Aragorn an AR-15?! Haha.
So, since this cloaked worked so well, I think I’ll go ahead and make one out of “Mossy Oak Bottomland” camo, line it for a bit more warmth, and waterproof to give myself a proper modern hunting cloak.

We do have the "Non-Tolkien Rangers" section for such things, if you've a mind -

viewforum.php?f=24

... I suppose it does make sense to try and be a bit more diligent about that. I know I've left some of my "old timey but not Middle-earth" projects in General rather than down there, which probably wasn't the best choice. Next time. (I do finally have a few projects getting close to showing off, though they're postponed until I finish Christmas sewing)

Now you're talking.
Life is a great adventure; if I live to be 10,000 years old, it won't be enough.

redhandfilms that is cool, I too mix ranger gear with modern stuff when I go hiking, because there are some things that just seem to work better than there modern equivalents, I'll have to see if I can find a photo but I might not have one
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.

This may be a bit too modern. Haha.
My cloak and leather wrap gauntlets go great with modern hunting gear. Not just worn for a picture. I’ve been hunting all afternoon in this and will again tomorrow morning.
I think I totally understand where you're coming from though redhand. The only reason I found this board was because I found Iodo's ruana cloak video in YouTube, and the only reason I found THAT was because I was specifically looking for diy rain gear I could take hunting that offered more mobility than a poncho but more versatility and warmth than frog toggs i.e. a cloak lol

Hah, I think that's a great depiction of a Dunedain Ranger from Stirling's Emberverse series redhand. Nicely done.

I was not familiar with this series and after looking it up, I'm adding to my reading list. As I found it described "... another survivor happens to be an archery enthusiast from a horse-owning family who is already obsessed with Tolkien before the world goes mad - and she, with some friends, eventually goes off into the redwood forests of the Northwest, declare themselves descendants of the Númenóreans, and start "reestablishing" the Dúnedain Rangers.
Forty years on in the books, there are people twenty and older who have grown up living in flets, speaking Sindarin as a first language, and studying "The Histories" as true history."

So... Us. Basically all of us on this forum if SHTF.

I only read the first trilogy which was pretty good. Never got into the sequels about which I’ve heard mixed reviews.
