SPOT Gen 3 Satellite GPS Messenger

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent insurance for the solo hiker, hunter, or fisher(person). I am a solo hiker, hunter, and fisherman who needs some insurance against accidents in the wild. I live within half an hour of the national forest, but if I got lost or had a serious accident off the trail, the results could be catastrophic without a GPS locating device. I've used the SPOT 3 twice this summer and find its periodic reporting of my precise location very satisfactory. Full review

Justin Lichter Trail Tested: A Thru-Hiker's Insights Into Hiking and Backpacking

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An informative read into a unique travel style. The book offers great tricks and insights to try out the next time you hit the trail. Justin's many miles of experience manifest themselves in humility and pragmatism. He makes you realize that he's just a dude, and if he can do it, you can too. The book is divided into well organized topics related to long-distance ultralight thru hiking. Justin then gives suggestions from experience, on the best gear and/or techniques to use related to the topics. Full review

Casio 3202 Twin Sensor Watch

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I am totally satisfied using this watch. It is most advance technology available in very cheap price. All-in-one model, just like a watch but but many specifications included in this watch. Manufacturing quality was very rigid. Look so nice, silver plated straps dial is entirely different color combination. Full review

Garmin eTrex 30

rated 4 of 5 stars Don't go in to the mountains without it. I use my Garmin eTrex 30 from hiking/backpacking to 4-wheeling and every other time I head up to the mountains. I received this as a gift and have been using it for almost a year now. There are a lot of great features that this device has from basic GPS and compass, trip computer, waypoints to area calculations, clocks/alarms, proximity alarms, sight 'N go, you name it, it seems to have all the bells and whistles. I use the trip computer every time I… Full review

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
