Camp Fork

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a great camp fork for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs over the campfire, but I wish it was telescoping for easier packing. When we were first getting into camping, we bought this camp fork to roast marshmallows or hotdogs over the campfire. Here is a video of our first family tent camping trip:  Since this was our first time camping as a family, we knew that we wanted something to roast food over the campfire, so we picked up this camping fork to use as a skewer for marshmallows and hotdogs.

Reflective Guy Line

rated 5 of 5 stars A 50' length of reflective 2mm cord which can be cut up to make guy lines or used full length as a ridge line or for a bear hang. Includes a small biner. What you see is what you get with the Coghlan's Reflective Guy Line; A 50' coil of 2mm line that has reflective threads woven in. It also comes with a small biner with a wire gate. While the label says Guy Line and it could be cut into lengths usable for that purpose, it can be used full length to hang a lightweight bear bag or as a shelter ridge… Full review

Water-Based Seam Seal

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Works well. I have used this with success on nylon tent floor perimeter seams and rainfly seam.  Neither were reinforced with tape and this has lasted over 8 years, 8-16 days, four seasons per year without reapplication. I have just applied to the opposite side of taped seams of a new tent. This works well as it saturates the thread and seals the stitched holes. This comes with a push to open top with brush attached. Application is easy: shake before use, invert, lightly squeeze bottle to saturate… Full review

Backpackers Trowel

rated 5 of 5 stars Most of the titanium cat hole shovels weigh from .6 to 1.0 ounces, price around 30$, and they are short (about 6 inches), and not ergonomic . The Coghlan's is longer, more of a bulb planting garden trowel. It has a good handle for leverage and weighs 2 ounces . When lightening up gear, I figure about 10$ per ounce to upgrade is a fair price from old to new. The Backpackers Trowel vs the titanium is a 25 to 27$ per ounce cost. Not a good price to pay to lose one measly ounce. You decide. Strong plastic,… Full review

Fire Paste

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent for pressurizing SVEA stoves. I've used this stuff for decades. A small amount, about equal to what you might use as toothpaste on a toothbrush burns for about two minutes. Placed in the divot around the stove stem pressurizes the brass fuel cell on SVEA 123 and 123R stoves perfectly. If you catch it just as the flame starts to die out, you can even light the stove. It just works! As far as fire starting, I remember a trip to the West Rim Trail at the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania (in central… Full review
