Para'Kito Mosquito Repellent Band

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Expensive but effective band with an eye catching could and pattern. Saved me from sheer torment. I was recommended the Parakito band while on holiday in Germany's Black Forest and having suffered 146 mosquito bites (Yes I counted the !). I loved the range of designs choosing a vibrant one for myself but a more muted one for my partner. The instructions were clear and straightforward and the band was comfortable to wear. I wore the band 24/7 though took it off for shower despite the instructions… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Spot 2017- new and improved! I've owned past models of the Spot- the 130 lumen model (2014-ish) and then the 2016 model- lumens bumped to 200 and waterproofness bumped to IPX8 and have been very satisfied with them.  Good all around lamps for a decent price point. This spring during an extended night travel stretch, I couldn't help but notice my buddy's lamp was putting out more light.  I asked what he was using- "Black Diamond Spot", well that's odd as that's what I'm using.  Unbeknownst to… Full review

SOL Escape Pro Bivvy

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Escape Pro Bivvy blurs the line between an emergency survival shelter and an ultralight sleeping bag cover. While it is comfortable and functional in ways a mylar space blanket could never be, the Escape Pro can’t quite compare with full-fledged waterproof-breathable fabric bivvy sacks. In carving its own niche, it may have hung itself out to dry. Best For: Aspiring fastest-known-time record setters. Fastpackers and backpackers needing a just-in-case shelter. WFRs and WEMTs looking for an… Full review

Green Goo Dry Skin Care

rated 4 of 5 stars Completely organic, homeopathic solution to dry skin problems. Would definitely use to help prevent cracked heels. As a ranger with TheDyrt, I often get the chance to try out products and recently I was able to try out the Dry Skin product from Green Goo. During the winter and summer months I often struggle with dry skin and cracked heels. Now, regardless of the product I don't apply it like I should to prevent the condition from occurring, but I will say that I've had a quicker turnaround when… Full review

Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller

rated 4 of 5 stars I'm not a big fan of mosquitos, or of slathering Deet all over myself. This repellant device is small enough to take on short overnight backpacking trips and makes hanging around camp a much better experience. I hate mosquitos. A big part of why I rarely backpack close to my Ohio home in the summer is because I don’t want to deal with them. The choice of getting repeatedly bitten or covering myself in Deet on a hot summer evening is picking one of two bad options to me. So you know, I’ve tried… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing features that were beyond what I expected when I took a 10-day loop backpack trip from Tolumne Meadows to Yosemite Valley floor. Other backpackers at High Sierra B.P. camps wanted to try it out. I was so impressed, I got several as gifts. Amazing high beam to allow me to follow trail or get around in camp for setup after dark. The low beam narrowing and dimming when needed to not disturb others. Strap stays put and comfortable adjuster. Light enough without weight and all features at my… Full review

Black Diamond ReVolt

rated 4 of 5 stars Exceptional headlamp. I take this headlamp with me everywhere from climbing, to camping to working on my vehicle. Exceptional headlamp. I take this headlamp with me everywhere from climbing, to camping to working on my vehicle. It's very bright and I enjoy using rechargeable batteries as I know I always leave the house with a full charge (can also use regular AAA batteries). The red light and "lock" function work well. The single button is a pain to use at first, but once you understand how it works… Full review

FireSteel GobSpark Armageddon

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the only firesteel I recommend now. It's never let me down and throws very hot sparks. This rod is great for survival training, bushcrafting, and as an emergency combustion source in your pack. I teach survival programs here on the West Coast of Canada. It's cold and wet a large part of the year. I have tried over a dozen different brands of ferro rods over the years and nothing beats my Gobspark Armageddon.  It's very well made. In the first model I used, I broke the handle off and the… Full review
