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

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
