Rust-Oleum NeverWet Fabric is a one-step, superhydrophobic, water repelling treatment designed to keep items dry longer. Goes on clear and causes water to bead up and roll off treated gear. I had tried the original Rust-Oleum NeverWet that comes in a two-can, two-step spray can form factor on some gear and while it worked great, it dried to an unsightly cloudy haze. Now Rust-Oleum has introduced NeverWet Fabric aimed at the outdoor furniture market. Having recently enjoyed a leaky tent on a… Full review
Good entry-level pack-frame carry-all. Detachable stowage for carrying most types of packbags (and assorted cargo.) Expandable frame for fitting a wide range of sizes., plus flexible frame to flex with torso while hiking. Lightweight, affordable, versatile.

My design is intentionally basic, versatile and adaptable. It is intended to be… Full review

We have never eaten this straight out of the bag. Does anyone eat crumbled hamburger as a main dish at home? All in all, my son has used this on several trips, and is currently… Full review
This sub 1oz stove puts out some serious heat and packs up small. Only one small problem. Looking for a stove to better fit my GSI Minimalist set, I found this small sub 1oz stove on Amazon. For $22, I figured I could take a chance. I also found some reviews on YouTube under the name BRS 3000T. This stove is also sold under the name Nomad Life for $25. Normally I like to live with something for a while before reviewing, but I wanted to let people know about one minor flaw on this stove.....It may… Full review
