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

Brunton 10B Baseplate Compass

rated 4.5 of 5 stars There were two major needs for this compass: 1. It must have 2 degree increments and 2. Must be able to set declination. It has both! I bought this compass for navigation in the backcountry. It has worked fine. I can set the declination to my area without needing any tools. The only thing that worried me was if I would accidentally adjust the declination because there is no tool needed but I haven't had any issues with it. For a compass for under $15 I think this is a fine addition to the Ten Essentials! Full review

Rite in the Rain Outdoor Journal

rated 4 of 5 stars I filled up two spiral bound field level notebooks for my ecology research in Florida last summer. The waterproof paper worked very well despite the humidity and daily unannounced thunderstorms, although any pen used will create smudges and dry slowly. If you are looking for a product to use in the field, whether for work or pleasure, then these notebooks are excellent for the price. You can order them in just about any size, with options for type of paper and binding cover. Keep in mind that if… Full review

Rand McNally Foris 850

rated 4 of 5 stars Great GPS for under a $100. Does everything I need. I bought this for around $85 shipped from Amazon for rattlesnake hunting the mountains of Western Pennsylvania, geocaching, and for hiking with my wife and daughter. With all honesty, I've only had one other GPS and it was a Magellan Sport I found it to be worthless. So I have nothing else to compare it to. This thing is very easy to use. It picks up satellites very quickly. It is loaded with maps for trails, forests, and bike trails, etc. It is… Full review

Falcon Guides Ultralight Backpackin' Tips

rated 2 of 5 stars The good/beneficial advice presented in this book simply cannot make up for the REALLY BAD opinions that the author brings forth as part of Ultralight (UL) backpacking. <<I borrowed it = Library book>> Opinions are like armpits--Everyone has a couple and some of them stink. The problem is when someone with stinky opinions gets himself published, many begin to accept those opinions as fact. Mike Clelland has had the good fortune of finding a publisher looking to cash in on the UL craze. Full review

Etón FRX3 Radio

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great for outdoor activities, picnics, lakeside, power outages. This is a great, compact radio for the little moment you want to add music to and not worry about where the power is coming from. The volume gets pretty loud and the sound is pretty good. A super useful tool for power outages and natural disaster issues, a great comfort to know I can charge my phone in an emergency.  This is not a backpacking radio. It may be splash proof, but I wouldn't test it. The knobs for adjusting tuning and… Full review

The Ultimate Hang An Illustrated Guide to Hammock Camping

rated 4 of 5 stars Very good book for beginners. This book gave an understanding of hammock camping. It gives you the knowledge to ask the questions you need to know. The reasons for not giving 5 stars is no book can answer all question. A must-read for anybody just starting in hammock camping. I recommend electronic copy from Amazon as it's cheaper. Full review
