Bear Bell with Magnetic Silencer

rated 5 of 5 stars Great product ! I love that I can silence it when I want to. There are areas that I hike in that I know bears are so I make noise going through area. Bear bell on wrist.I keep it on my poles all the time.I shook the bear bell a few times and blew my whistle and he looked at me and left so I could continue on the trail safely. Full review

Waterproof Matches

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Since we do a lot of canoe camping, and camp in all weather, having waterproof matches seemed like a good idea. These matches will light when (lightly) wet, but I certainly will not purchase them again. These are a perfect example of "you get what you pay for." Inexpensive matches = poor quality. Yes, you get a lot of matches in this package...but we have found that so many break while you are trying to light them, that probably only half are actually usable. The stick portion is very flimsy and… Full review

Trekking Umbrella

rated 4 of 5 stars A very nice piece of kit, well made, tough and very fit for purpose. This is a great piece of kit for the serious hiker who experiences all weathers.

Frame construction is all fiber glass, 29.5 inches long when closed; the spokes and stays are solid glass, the pole is tubular and has a soft touch decent sized grip that fits the closed fist. The canopy is vented and sheds wind without letting… Full review

Biodegradable Camp Soap

rated 4 of 5 stars It's a handy, portable, fairly effective soap. Easy to transport, not very messy, doesn't smell too bad and isn't too harsh. We got the chance to try this soap out on our annual coastal car-camping trip. First time, we approached it from a 'try and see' standpoint, figuring that if it works well, then we can stop lugging along actual dish soap, which would be an improvement in many ways. Short answer: We'll be taking it along again in the future. Long answer: This is a pretty reasonably performing… Full review

Waterproof Fire Sticks

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent, effective, and affordable fire starter tinder that light easily with match or lighter as well as with a ferrocerium rod. Perfect for inclement weather or for those occasions when you don't want to wrestle with seeking dry natural tinder. Great for backpackers, car campers, hunters, and more. Those who frequent backcountry areas with established campsites and fire rings often enjoy the classic thrill of being warmed by or even cooking over an evening camp fire, but adverse weather conditions,… Full review
