Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for ice or any hard pack surface. Wear with any boot—hiking, pac boot, and even big, bulky Muck boots. From flat trail walking with your dogs to light mountaineering to ice fishing with your pals, the MICROspikes will NOT disappoint. Outperform other traction devices in the class not considered 10 point crampons. I've used on a variety of surfaces from packed snowmobile trails walking my dogs to Maine/New Hampshire mountains where there is often ice on the trails at different times throughout… Full review

Black Diamond ReVolt

rated 5 of 5 stars A solid, well-built performer that eliminates adding batteries to your shopping list. I've had my ReVolt for about three years and after relatively heavy use it still operates perfectly in a wide range of conditions. Having had a fair number of headlamps the ReVolt is the one I'll go back to again. The ability to recharge with a USB cable before a trip via my computer, a wall socket (no included adapter), or in the car on the way to the trailhead is a feature I won't ever give up. I still carry… Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 4 of 5 stars Best all around traction device for icy and winter hikes. I bought myself a pair of Kahtoola Microspikes after moving to New Hampshire for school. There are many days where I find myself on hikes that require more than bare boots, but less than a full-on crampon. Most summits here are coated with rime ice/snow for a good portion of the year, even while the trails are free of snow. For these situations, I find having the Microspikes is not only helpful, but an essential safety tool in the mountains. Full review

Sheet Metal Screws

rated 5 of 5 stars I've been doing this for years!! Never a problem at all. Cheapest and best solution out there. No review really necessary here. It's quite self explanatory. Other reviewer said it all.  Full review

32north STABILicers Original

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I have utilized various traction systems over the past years, to gain traction while hiking, walking on icy driveways, shoveling snow, and kicksledding. Each system has pros and cons. The Stabilicers seem best suited to non-technical/all-around use (walking around in icy conditions), though I also found them good for kicksledding. They will not be my first choice for uphill winter hiking, but are a durable, easy to use, traction device. When I first received these Stabilicer Maxx Strap-on Ice traction… Full review

NiteRider Adventure 180

rated 4 of 5 stars To start out with I just want to say I really like this headlamp. It has some flaws, but then again most things do. As a general use headlamp for an outdoor enthusiast the Adventure 180 is great. You would like this headlamp if you want a multipurpose light for use around camp, map reading, cooking, gathering firewood, and to an extent night hiking or other activities where long range visibility is wanted. What makes this headlamp really stand out is its broad range of light output. You can use… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Spot 2016 is an improvement. I am not a headlamp gear freak, but it was time for an upgrade. The 2016 version performed very well while cooking dinner in the dark and other activities such as cleanup, hanging food sacks in bear country, reading, and not blinding my partner in the tent on a recent 5-night trip. I used the headlamp every night. Spending time at home mastering and memorizing the features and their control is a no-brainer. Do it. The new maximum output of 200 lumens at 80 m is a nice,… Full review

Petzl Tikka

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple things just work. Simple things just work. Simple ... Lightweight ... Easy to find since it glows in the dark ... Long battery life ... Reliable. Full review

Exotac NanoStriker XL

rated 5 of 5 stars Throws a nice spark, kinda like a glob if you get it right. Takes up no room. Best $20 I've spent in awhile. This pic below shows it. The first pic is a mini Maglite.As you can see it's a good size broken down. I would bet my life on this guy and getting my fire going. They give you several different color options and a smaller version. It really is a quality built piece of gear. Definitely worth the money. Full review
