ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 4 of 5 stars Good product if you know all the details. We got the footsies, the back, and the shoulder warmer at a state fair. We did our research. Overall the price we paid wasn't bad. We paid 100 even. For the record, my review is not paid. I'm just a science buff and I don't spend money on frivolous things unless I've done a lot of research.  The solution inside the packs is sodium acetate. When you click the concave disk it sets off a chain reaction that will raise the pack to about 130 degrees F UNTIL… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Garbage Product does not work very well. Hand warmers don't stay warm for more than 10 minutes and don't get very hot at that. I boiled  the hand warmers to liquify again and after boiling hand warmers stayed hot a lot longer liquefied then when you actually use the product. Full review

Petzl e+LITE

rated 3 of 5 stars A very light headlamp, but with some durability issues. There are already a number of reviews of this light, and I will not repeat that information. I write only to say that having used both the older and newer versions of this light on extended trips (14+ days, each), there is durability problem I've not seen mentioned in the other posts. Specifically, dust and grit gets into the lever mechanism. This makes turning the light on and off, or switching between settings, either impossible or done only… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Do not waste your money on this product. Very involved resetting process and length of time it stays hot for is no good! Do not waste your money on this product. I recently purchased these for holiday gifts and the sales rep lied to my mother and I about the resetting process, stating that you simply just need to put it in a cup of warm water....never did he mention that the reality is that you must boil water in a pot with a towel on the bottom...much more involved that just a little warm water. Full review

Petzl e+LITE

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Petzl e+LITE is a great lightweight headlamp that provides more then adequate light for helping you hike along the trail at night or digging something out of your pack in camp. I have been working to reduce the weight of my pack for longer trips I take in the summer and have been going through my gear looking for where I can shave a few ounces and switching to the Petzl e+LITE shaved another two ounces! I can feel my pack getting lighter already! When I am backpacking my lighting needs are really… Full review

UCO Stormproof Matches

rated 5 of 5 stars Dependable flame, every time. At one point in my life I was a professional pyrotechnician and owned my own business. We shot professional shows and designed electronic firing systems. After having to ignite fireworks in practically every weather condition imaginable (and after having just about every failure you can think of!) the one thing that always worked for us was Orion road flares. These matches are just like emergency road flares. They strike when wet. They burn reliably and predictably… Full review

Light My Fire Tinder-on-a-Rope

rated 4 of 5 stars Nothing fancy, but reliably useful. Tinder on a Rope is precisely what the name suggests and is nice to have as a backup for fire starting. Conditions: I’ve used the Tinder on a Rope several times this past year, in a variety of conditions ranging from cold, damp spring to hot, humid summer, with success each time. The worst (i.e. wettest) conditions I used it in was after a seemingly out-of-nowhere summer rainstorm snuck up on us in the latter part of the afternoon while on a three-day canoeing… Full review

Ultimate Survival Technologies Survival Blanket 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars I too have used this product and love it for an entirely different reason, but basically the same functionality with a twist. This is a very good light but heavy duty tarp that I use as a floor liner in my tent when I camp with my two dogs.  One of my dogs is a Dalmatian that is a total wimp about staying warm, the other is a Border Collie.  This blanket helped keep the tent much warmer than without it AND protected the floor from two dogs' toenails that I forget to keep very short. They have… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars ClickHeat products are sold using false and deceptive practices. DO NOT BUY THEM. On 12/13/2017 we visited the ClickHeat kiosk in the Natick shopping mall in Massachusetts. Based on the deceptive information from the sales rep (Inaj) we purchased two complete gift sets and additional items for $881.88 charged to our VISA for our use and as holiday gifts for family members. (3 back, 3 shoulders, 2 eye, 2 feet, and 6 hand packs).  They have a policy of no refunds, however the representative misrepresented… Full review
