Friendly Swede Paracord Bracelet

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Officially called "The Friendly Swede Adjustable Premium Paracord Bracelet with Fire Starter and Sharp Eye Knife," this paracord bracelet includes a useful emergency fire steel and a cutting implement that doubles as a fire steel striker in addition to about 17 ft/5.18 m of paracord. Quality components make this a good survival-style bracelet for anyone who doesn't mind the bulk of this hefty bracelet—campers, hunters, or anyone who wishes to be prepared for the unexpected. What It Is Paracord… Full review

SOL Escape Bivvy

rated 0.5 of 5 stars A mylar blanket does a better job of reflecting heat. I've tested this bivy in temps from the 40s down into the teens. Every time I ended up colder than when I didn't use it at all. Instead of reflecting heat back to me, the Escape Bivvy seemed to conduct heat away from my body like a heat sink. I contacted customer service and their idea was that the bivy was compressing the insulation in my mummy bag. That sounded like a good theory since it doesn't offer much room with a sleeping bag inside. Full review

Climb On Bar

rated 5 of 5 stars Not just for climbers!!! This all natural, chemical free product helps repair sore fingers and knuckles. "If you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin." Climb On! has been accompanying me on all of my camping trips for the last couple of years, as well as helping me out any time my hands get in rough shape. It's antiseptic, antimicrobial, and healthy on so many other levels!  Ingredients: Unrefined yellow beeswax apricot kernel oil essential oil of lavender grapeseed oil virgin wheat germ oil… Full review

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
