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, 4 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 .

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

Fire Paste

rated 4 of 5 stars When there is no need to prove how woodsy you are it will get your fire going with no fuss. I squeeze it in to a small Nalgene container (clearly marked as not food) so as not to take the whole tube. It works great to prime my old Svea stove even in the winter. At the end of a long day of backpacking up and down the glacial hills of the Ice Age Trail it helped this tired camper to get a wood fire going easily. Full review

Fire Paste

rated 4 of 5 stars I wouldn't hesitate to carry it again and have my grandson carrying/using it now. I used it many times in some rough, cold, and windy conditions. Smart though to carry another form of firestarter too...like a flare ;) just in case. Full review
