SafeRingz

rated 5 of 5 stars I wear mine everyday. Never take it off. It's so comfortable, I don't even know I'm wearing a ring! Love it! Full review

SafeRingz

rated 4.5 of 5 stars SafeRingz is a great, low-cost investment that can protect the hands of rock climbers, cavers, and anyone working/playing at height. In the months that I have been wearing it, it has already saved me from one close call. Additionally, it makes the use of trekking poles more comfortable.

A few months ago I was reading a blog by Dave Prowitz… Full review

Highly recommended for those looking for a professional grade, rough use, super bright light. Not recommended for close work or enclosed areas. I purchased this light several months ago to light up my entire… Full review

First, hand picked for appearance and grain alignment. Second, sharpened beyond the factory edge. Through doing these things, I saved myself some time on… Full review

Cotton Carrier Strapshot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for quick access. I originally became aware of this while hiking in the Adirondack High Peaks and saw someone using it. He recommended this and now that I have one I do as well.  The main part attaches to your pack by tight and secure Velcro. Then on the bottom of your DSLR you screw in an adaptor that will slide into the clip attached to your pack. Included with the carrier is a hand strap for your camera. It makes it easier to grab your camera and slide it out from the strap holder. You… Full review
