STABIL Icers HikeXP

rated 4 of 5 stars The Stabil Icers HikeXP are perfect for the snow and ice on sidewalks or trails. Easy on and off makes them useful where the conditions may vary from snow/ice and then transition to hard surfaces where you want to just remove them. They slip over your winter shoes or boots easily. These slip on traction devices worked very well this winter while we were walking in our neighborhood in Truckee, California.  All though the roads were often plowed, the surface of the road, and our sloping driveway… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought at a trade show. Product was grossly misrepresented! Last 20 minutes, if that. They said up to 4 hours. They said you restore by placing in warm water. Reality is you have to complete boil in water for 8-10 minutes. Little to say other than this group misrepresents a product that leaves no impression other than a scam after you learn it does 5-10% of what they say it will do. Strongly advise against any purchases from this item or company. Full review

Gerber Bear Grylls Fire Starter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this firestarter. It really does the job each and every time! Overall I think this is a great product and I am quite happy with my purchase!! Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Overpriced and inconvenient. I do not recommend this product. Definitely stay away from the kiosk at the events where this item is being sold. It is a waste of money. The product worked the first time, stayed warm for about an hour. The product has to be placed in boiling water—major waste of time and energy. The product leaks after being placed in boiling water, which is a required process to restore the product. Overpriced and inconvenient. I do not recommend this product. Definitely stay away… Full review

UCO Titan Stormproof Match Kit

rated 4 of 5 stars These are some of the biggest matches that you'll ever find and that for the most part meet the manufacturer's claim of being waterproof and windproof. While the weight and size of the matches may be more than most backpackers would want to carry, these matches would be a great addition to someone's camping, emergency, or survival gear. First off I would like to say that I received these matches as a gift from Trailspace for being a past Reviewer of the Month. When I first received these matches… Full review

Petzl Reactik +

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Petzl Reactik Plus incorporates Petzl's reactive technology light settings with the added feature of being Bluetooth compatible to pair the light with the MyPetzl Light app. I highly recommend this light and it performs well in a multitude of activities ranging from hiking and snowshoeing to backcountry ski touring. Background Details: The Petzl Reactik Plus is a headlamp that incorporates Petzl's Reactive lighting technology which adjusts lighting output based on user need. The light has a… Full review

Yaktrax Pro

rated 1 of 5 stars They are awful and I was more scared with them on walking on ice and snow, than with them off. They are made durable, and they are worth the price. However walking in a non-ice or non-snow sidewalk and street can do damage to your walking, and it is highly not recommended. Full review

Princeton Tec Byte

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Looks sturdy. Lightweight. Doesn't last. I bought the light because it looked sturdy and had a good amount of light with a light weight. I used it four times last trout season. This month I put new batteries in it and found the soft selector switch does not work. I removed the rubber cover and tried to use the tiny switch directly. The light would flash bright, but would not come on. Not durable or dependable. Full review

Exotac NanoStriker XL

rated 0.5 of 5 stars It is a great fire starter if you do not put it on a chain or neck loop. Mine came unscrewed while hiking and that was that. You'll only find out it was lost when you need it at the end of the day. Full review
