OK. I’ve got two. The first one I had to do once because I forgot my first aid kit. Probably not my best recommendation.

1. DIY Duct Tape Blister Prevention: Prevent blisters by wrapping potential hot spots on your feet with duct tape before they become painful. The smooth surface reduces friction and can save you from discomfort during your hike.

2. Water Bladder Insulation: To keep your water from getting too warm in the sun, insulate your hydration bladder by wrapping it in a reflective emergency blanket or placing it inside an insulated sleeve. This helps maintain a refreshing temperature for your water during hot hikes.
