Ultra light weight coffee in the back country that tastes better than Starbucks. Buy at any local Trader Joes. Pack in as many as you think you'd drink, they're ultralight. Boil 2 cups of water your favorite way. The waterproof packets are filled with ground coffee. The container has a built-in filtration system. Open the "ziplock" style top. Slowly add water. The side tells you how much to add Mild to Strong. Let sit and cool down. If I'm near water I set mine in a stream for a min. Break off… Full review
Indispensable manually operated bear alert horn that does not run on compressed (expensive canned) air. Reusable, reliable, reasonable cost and VERY loud. Packs small and lightweight. Purchased (#SL57223) from Amazon for $15.00 (see attached ad) awhile back for smaller backwoods hikes in Northern Wisconsin. We've used these in Wisc. for years without 'close encounters'. We are now in Glacier Park and would not go ANYWHERE in Glacier (even to heavily peopled areas like the NPS Headquarters /campgrounds… Full review

Completely organic, homeopathic solution to dry skin problems. Would definitely use to help prevent cracked heels. As a ranger with TheDyrt, I often get the chance to try out products and recently I was able to try out the Dry Skin product from Green Goo. During the winter and summer months I often struggle with dry skin and cracked heels. Now, regardless of the product I don't apply it like I should to prevent the condition from occurring, but I will say that I've had a quicker turnaround when… Full review
More than adequate for anything I use a flashlight for. Cannot beat the price! Convenient and durable. This is a review of the "3-1/2 in. 9 LED Mini Flashlight" which Harbor Freight regularly has "free with purchase." This is my go-to flashlight for camping, general home use, and I also use one as the headlamp on my bicycle (5-mile one-way commute in all but the foulest weather). I have (and have had) a bunch of these, and all have worked and lasted. If you don't expect it to be what it is not,… Full review
