Energia's Hexa-Pot is a product that truly fails on every conceivable level. From marketing claims to performance, nothing about this product is worth adding to your backpack. It is rare that I so thoroughly discount a product. However, I honestly can't find anything positive to say about this product. It's claims are disingenuous. Its execution is abysmal. To explain....

Finally, and most disappointing, is that the website offers… Full review
The Allett Ultra Slim Original wallet is so thin that you can hardly feel it in your pocket. Has all the slots and folds one needs for cash or credit cards. Recommended for all outdoor activities due to its light weight and slim nature, but be careful not to have cards fall out. I received this Allett Ultra Slim Original wallet as a trial for test and review from the manufacturer. It is minimally stylish but considering its use during outdoor activities that is not an issue for me. It has four slots… Full review
