Backpackers Trowel

rated 5 of 5 stars Been a durable dependable camp tool for over 10 years. It has taken its share of abuse with rock, roots, and hard ground and shows no real sign of any plastic fatigue. This is one of our camp staples, both for car camping and backpacking. I find it more convenient than trying to find a stick that's strong enough to dig in our rocky CO soil or using the heel of my boot. Plus, when you gotta go, sometimes you gotta go and it's nice to just have the tool right there. It has worked for us for more than… Full review

Camp Axe

rated 3 of 5 stars Cheap, car camping axe is worth the 11 bucks you will spend on it. Cons Let's start with the cons. There are many cons. It does not come sharpened. The bit is poorly tempered and dulls very quickly. The handle is a hollow tube so it can bend very easily. The rubber handle gets loose in the heat. Pros It is 11 dollars. The head is soft enough to hammer it without chipping. The handle can be bent back. It is reasonably light. Review That right there is a picture of a Coghlan's axe that has been used… Full review

Inflatable Air Cushion

rated 4 of 5 stars Six bucks for a seat pillow that does the same thing as a $40 Thermarest. Count me in. I've got 5 Thermarest pillows that either sprung unfixable leaks (my bad) or delaminated over 20 years. Only bad thing is you have to blow it up like an air mattress; no internal self inflating foam. They're practically disposable. Full review

One Cup Coffee Filters

rated 5 of 5 stars Coghlan's One Cup Coffee Filters are a great idea for people heading out into the backcountry to enjoy a cup of fresh brewed coffee. These tiny filters are light weight and produce great tasting coffee. If you are like me, you probably like to start your day with a good cup of coffee. When I go camping or canoeing I usually take along instant coffee. It's quick and easy, but doesn't always give me that taste I'm looking know what I mean...the unmistakable taste of a cup of fresh brewed… Full review

LED Micro Lantern

rated 3 of 5 stars This lantern gives off a tiny amount of light. This isn't a bad thing though. I find it gives sufficient light for finding something in my pack, or for late night walks to go for a pee. I bought this lantern to use for backpacking and camping. I was looking for a small, battery operated, light weight lantern. I have yet to field test it, but I've been using it around the house to test it out. It's extremely light. It weighs only 24g and is about the size of your thumb. It's water resistant. We'll… Full review
