Black Crystal Hiking Ski Snow Gaiters

rated 5 of 5 stars Can't beat these for the price! A decent breathable well made gaiter made in the USA! What more can I say? If these aren't durable enough for you, they even have a Kevlar model that's only like $20 more. So far I think these are the best out there for the price. Shoot I could buy two pair and still pay less than what others are charging for the same thing. Very well made, will update later this winter after use. Full review

G4Free Folding Camping Chair

rated 4 of 5 stars This chair is a great value alternative to the Helinox Chair One with an almost identical design. The chair height is just high enough to allow you to stand up easily. I prefer this chair over my Alite Mantis Chair! When I received this chair I was currently rocking an Alite Designs Mantis chair on the trail. I have to admit that I was a little underwhelmed with the basic design and didn't have very high expectations for it. This chair goes up quickly thanks to the bungee pole system that most modern… Full review

Sunwayman D20A Gemini

rated 1 of 5 stars A tea cup is more durable than this flashlight! I bought this flashlight because of nice design. Unfortunately I did not have a chance to use it outdoor to describe parameters such as range, brightness etc. Item was super fragile! Mine broke after falling from 30 centimeters. I'm the owner tens of flashlights from Fenix, olight, and also no-name Chinese manufacturers, but never had problem regarding durability. Battery compartment cover of this flashlight is fixed using two tiny screws and it… Full review

InstaPark Mercury 10 Solar Panel Charger

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Quality charger, but somewhat heavy. Charger looks solid, charges very fast. Problem is that for me it is a little bit heavy for backpacking (about 0.5 kg) and too expensive. It can be attached to a backpack, but I think it will be not comfortable when you have a tent and sleeping pad already attached.  In the future I most probably will give a chance to another more lightweight options, which are many in the market.

Atak Outdoor Lighted Tent Stakes

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Okay, I admit...lighted tent stakes are a bit silly. But for those of us who are nocturnally visually challenged, they are an easy technique to avoid tripping over tent lines, rocks, or stumps during dark hours. They also provide a nice little glowing ambiance to the tent site! I had seen lighted tent stakes in an outdoors magazine, and thought it was kind of a neat idea…but did not want to invest too much money, since I was not sure how much I would actually use them, nor how long they would… Full review
