ZebraLight H600 MK II

rated 5 of 5 stars The H600 MK II is a nearly indestructible headlamp, providing a blinding 1,090 Lumens of light. Combine that with its long battery life and feather weight, and you will be stunned to learn it retails for hundreds of dollars less than its less powerful competitors! Zebra Light is taking the caving community by storm, and it won't be long until that tempest pours into all outdoor sports. Consider these four factors: It puts out 2-4 times the light of a typical headlamp. It costs a fraction of less… Full review

SOL Emergency Blanket

rated 3 of 5 stars Best when new. I used this once to keep my butt dry while I sat on a riverbank while my son played in the water. It is not a very good thermal barrier, being so thin heat conducts to the ground right through it. The aluminum coating might reflect radiant heat and as a tarp it certainly will keep you dry and out of the breeze. That said when I went to use it a second time all of the aluminum reflective material had come off. It still will make a light ground cloth or an emergency tarp, but its claim… Full review

Adventure Medical Kits Travel Medic

rated 2 of 5 stars Save your money and put your own kit together. After taking a wilderness first aid course I decided to put together a backcountry first aid kit. This seemed like it could be the core of a lightweight kit. There were some antiseptic wipes and alcohol swabs, which were nice but there were also a few packets of typical medicine cabinet drugs that were near expiration. There were low-end adhesive bandages that are next to worthless as they won't stay on. Worst of all was the moleskin, pre cut — hope… Full review

Petzl Zipka

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Zipka 2 is a great little, and I do mean little, headlamp that will serve hikers who are not prone to find themselves walking long after dusk. And for almost two years my little Zipka has traveled with me every time I've been out. The Zipka is well suited for around camp chores, late night latrine trips and reading a book in the hammock. When I replace this one it will be with the latest model, I simply love it. I've carried the Zipka every time out for a year and it's never let me down. It's… Full review

Cyclops Atom

rated 4 of 5 stars Headlamps can be used for hobbies, projects, and fun stuff to do. Outdoors and gear. It is a staple item of gear among outdoor enthusiasts. ALL LAMPS HAVE A DIFFERENT SPECTRA OF LIGHT!!! This is the Cyclops Atom-XP-LED HeadlampI purchased this new at the sporting goods store ... it's inexpensive but good! I am not biased about the headlamp. It is easy and quick! You cannot go wrong with this light. This Cyclops Atom XP Led Headlamp is designed for tactical or everyday needs. It is fairly sturdy… Full review

Kahtoola Microspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Well worth having for any type of hiking! I use these 100% of the time and they are a necessity for winter hikes. The Microspikes are not only a necessity but imitation spikes absolutely do not hold up to these. The benefit of having these on during a winter hike or even just around the campsite is tremendous. I suggest everyone has a pair and don't debate whether you should wear them or not, just put them on! Great product. Full review

Exotac FireRod

rated 4 of 5 stars A high quality fire starter tool. FIRE -- Oh Oh!! No matter how light I try to get in my pack weight, there are two things that I always keep three of: water treatment and fire starting. Call me paranoid. Anyway, along with a mini-Bic in my pack hip belt and waterproof matches in my first aid kit, I keep this little nifty tool from Exotac. It's called the fireRod — a ferrocerium fire starter (which is similar to flint/steel, but a bit easier to use and is the "flint" found in butane lighters). Full review

Petzl Tikka R+

rated 4 of 5 stars Great headlamp that excels in technical use. The reactive lighting is extremely helpful at conserving maximum battery for navigation even after 11 hours of use, and it also works great for down climbing through technical terrain. I have had this headlamp for six months and used it for climbing, running, and camping. The controls are confusing at first so make sure a staff member shows you how they work. It's the second of Peztl's Reactive series of lights. Reactive lighting uses a photo sensor that… Full review

Princeton Tec Fuel

rated 4 of 5 stars The Princeton Tec Fuel is an inexpensive headlamp with a reputation of having the battery door break on users. This user has carried the Fuel for nearly two years on numerous backpacking/camping trips and has found it to be a lot of light for a little price. The Con Everyone Complains of: Let's get right to the con, because that seems to be the issue most talked about. Yes, the battery door requires a delicate touch. If you know that when you buy it, you should be all right. However, the Fuel has… Full review
