Cool one man tent from Germany Miltec by Sturm of Germany one man (berth) tent This was given to me as a gift and I really like it. its small, light and pack down in my backpack just fine. gives me a little more room than a bivy sack and is very well made. I have not seen any others here in the US yet but they are offered online. I do not like the fiberglass poles (past experience's) or cheap wire stakes it came with but both have held up pretty well so far. I have used it off and on for about 8… Full review
The UCO candle lanterns are high quality and I don’t see similar ones made by other companies for sale now. However historically there were all types of candle lanterns.

It is made from thin aluminum, and the glass globe just slides up (kind of odd glass, perhaps it melted a little at some point?). Still, it works OK. I have tried tea lights in it and they work OK, but are a little dim. It seems to work… Full review
Stays warm for little time, needs boiling. Same experience. They last only for half an hour and then need to be boiled for a couple of minutes (10-15).

If it was enough… Full review
Great trail running shoe available mostly in Europe and UK. For its price it is superbly technical, grippy, and comfortable, accessible easily to the grand public. INTRO I purchased the Kiprace Trail 3 about two months ago for training purposes. I am a quite efficient runner and like low profile shoes. For instance my forever favorite for years now is the X-Talon 212 from Inov 8, but I like all kind of track and cross country spikes too and training in them is just a fun time for me. I have… Full review
This is the most durable power bank that I have found. It's dustproof, waterproof, and shockproof. It also has a built-in flashlight and SOS signal. I have been looking for a portable battery bank for a long time. My phone and cameras are always running low when I am out traveling or hiking with my family. I was about to get a cheap power bank, but then EasyAAC approached me about making a video of their battery bank for my YouTube channel. In the video below I unbox the power bank and check out… Full review
