PowerView 12x 25mm Folding Binoculars

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A good choice for a lightweight compact pair of binoculars. They are durable, easily adjustable, and have relatively good optics for the price. I don’t carry them every trip but miss them on trips with good views or lots of leisure time for wildlife watching. I guess you could say I have a love-hate relationship with binoculars on backpacking trips. I looked back through my notes from many trips since I bought the Bushnell Powerview 12x25's on a whim (Target around 2005 for $20), and see almost… Full review


rated 0.5 of 5 stars Worthless. Use a compass or buy another product. Have two friends that each have one and myself that got one as a birthday present. Would have died if I didn't have a backup. Don't use it as a serious backup. Full review

SolarWrap Mini

rated 3.5 of 5 stars While it has some significant limitations, the Bushnell Solar Wrap Mini 100, works well as a lightweight backup battery for a variety of electronics in the field.

I planned to be on trail for up to six days between resupplies. In researching… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Randy: Which BackTrack do you have? I had the same issue on the original until I learned that all digital compasses need to be calibrated, my Suunto is the same way. I flipped it in the air a couple of times instead of following the video I found on the website and it was accurate from then on, unless I moved a timezone or two away then had to do it again.  I just bought the new BackTrack Point5 and it is great.  Still very simple, but adds temp, time, altitude and a pretty cool digital compass… Full review


rated 0.5 of 5 stars Purchased one in Jan 11 - it could not point North or anywhere consistently. So I returned it for a new one...It was no better. It frequently would point about 160 to 180 degrees in the WRONG direction.  Anyone who relies on this for getting out of the woods or snow country is a dead man. Bushnell needs to recall these before they result in a needless death (and yes I am an experienced with the various normal issues of GPS). Too bad too, because the concept is a great one.I am not sure why they… Full review
