CritterMap Backcountry Navigator for Android

rated 5 of 5 stars Many people are going out and spending hundreds of dollars on a GPS, then at least a hundred more on mapping. I was one of them. This product works excellent for me and it is nice having a larger phone screen. I spend a lot of time out in  the backcountry hiking, quading, dualsport riding, and fly fishing. So I purchased a handheld GPS online, spent $450 with mapping "sale" price. It was a frustrating joke! The program was very difficult to learn, the screen was very small. I ended up selling it… Full review

Random House The Well-Fed Backpacker

rated 5 of 5 stars Great cookbook for the backpacker! I wouldn't use the term 'glamping' to describe our backpacking outings, however we do put a great deal of thought into our meals while on the trail. I have other books that mainly discuss the use of a dehydrator, this book is different. June Fleming discusses backpackers needs from top to bottom: nutrition, packing, cooking, camp setup. She discusses where to get certain ingredients and how to use them in conjunction. This book doesn't have a massive amount of… Full review

Kestrel DROP D2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Kestrel Drop 2 Datalogger is a tiny sensor that links with your iPad or iPhone to provide environmental measurements remotely. It is handy for checking the temperature when you are comfortable inside your tent or snow shelter and sleeping bag or for monitoring fresh food you carry for the first few days of a backpacking trip. Background: Have you ever been nice and cozy inside your tent and wondered what temperature awaited you outside your tent? Or, on the other hand, been roasting inside your… Full review

It compares various choices in backpacking equipment and styles of living out of a backpack… Full review

Gaia GPS App & Offline Topo Maps

rated 5 of 5 stars Gaia offers up-to-date and detailed GPS topo maps for Android or IOS devices. Best of all the maps are downloadable so your phone can be your GPS even when out of cellular range. I had a Garmin eTrex and then a Garmin 450 GPS that I have used the past 12 years. Both devices were well utilized and displayed good accuracy and much usefulness.  I recently bought the Canada Topo Pro maps for my Samsung Note 3 for $9.99. I liked and used that app for the past few months. Having a big 5.7" display to… Full review

Falcon Guides Hiking North Carolina

rated 4 of 5 stars If you are hiking in North Carolina and want to visit as many trails as possible, than this is the book for you. It covers a lot of the trails available in detail. The Background This is an amazing book and I specifically purchased the eBook version to help me plan camping/hiking trips when I was in North Carolina. I used this guide to plan and go on 6 trips. I had 3 more planned but didn’t have enough time in NC to complete them all. The book provides a good level of detail on all of the locations… Full review

Polar AXN300

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I used the AXN300, which was a load of rubbish. I wouldn't trust Polar ever again. My watch was repaired four times and constantly let me down and cost me a lot of money to own and maintain. The manual says I can replace the batteries, but Polar declined all responsibility. The repair facility in France is a rip-off, charging over 20€ plus battery to change a battery which doesn't last very long. The watch is massive and snags on clothing and sleeves. I apologise for my review being so negative. Full review

Brunton 8099 PRO Eclipse

rated 2 of 5 stars Good idea. Poor construction. Over the years, I've had a lot of compasses as a 17-year-member and Team Leader of a local S&R organization. They just interest me and I get a lot of use from them. I've owned several Bruntons, Silvas, and Suuntos among others. Every Brunton I've owned eventually got a bubble in the capsule. None of the Silvas. The disc (needle) of the Brunton also jumps off the needle it rotates on, causing it to tip off at an angle. It's just bothersome for the amount of $ one… Full review

Garmin Fenix

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I took this guy out for our first field test on the Buffalo River a few weeks ago. Really great watch for the avid outdoors man. The trackback feature came in handy several times on that rocky terrain. The storm alarm was a lifesaver too. The river rose 5 feet during the night! The Garmin Fenix is the product for you if you are heading outdoors. If you like to bike, hike, run, fly, swim, float, or fish then this little package has a lot to offer. It has multiple profile settings that you can choose… Full review
