Coghlan's Flint Striker

rated 3 of 5 stars Looks good, but as supplied does not perform. I bought this Ferro fire steel online from a very reliable survival training centre with their recommendation from students' field use where they said that it was good for over 4,000 strikes. I was therefor most surprised to find it didn't produce a spark at all with the pressed steel striker supplied. With the Light My Fire striker it was a very different story—massive spark every time. I filed and ground the Coghlan's striker to give a good 90-degree… Full review

UCO X-120R

rated 1.5 of 5 stars This headlamp has no reason to be on the market. It delivers very little, the design has no sense, and it's just not powerful enough. I can't really understand why should anyone choose this headlamp over the other. I want a headlamp that is light, sturdy, comfortable with long battery life. This headlamp is uncomfortable. The unit keeps slipping down from its position. The output is weak. The control over the light beam is not enough. It's not focused enough for long distance or dispersed enough… Full review

Princeton Tec Apex

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Unreliable quality. It's bright and lasts long enough but it seems to break very easily under normal caving or camping conditions. Great return policy, but it gets old constantly returning a product that's supposed to be reliable. I've returned the product twice and both times Princeton Tec gave me a new one with no questions asked. My second replacement has broken now and I suspect Princeton Tec will give me a new one with no questions asked this time as well, I'm just not sure it's worth the headache. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

Do not buy!!! I paid $107!!! Piece of @#@*...does not work, will not activate!!! I want my money back and you can't even find a website or Facebook page to do that!!!! Bogus @#%*hole company! Do not buy from. Do not buy. Do not buy. Can I write below zero?! Does not work, does not work, does not work. That is all. Do not buy. Very upset. Full review

Coast FL75R

rated 4 of 5 stars I used the Coast FL75R on my thru hike of the Continental Divide Trail last year. It's an extremely bright headlamp and its wide to narrow beam focusing sets it apart. It’s not perfect but it’s pretty damn good... Modes The FL75R has two buttons, the left button as seen in this picture actuates the main lamp and the right button turns on the red light. One click of the left button activates High Beam (530 lumens), another click switches to Medium (Unlisted) and one more for Low (65 lumens) then… Full review

pStyle

rated 5 of 5 stars Women be free! No more being scared to get out of your tent at midnight to pee. Women, we need to talk honestly. There are a lot of female urinary devices out there, and I found a favorite, the Pstyle. With the carrying case which has a carabiner to attach to my pack, the cost is about $23. I have been looking for a solution to crawling out of my tent at night, in the rain, to urinate. I tried just a plastic bag with disastrous results. With this sleek design, you just have to kneel on one knee,… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Great value, extremely bright, and adjustable brightness. Black Diamond claims you can see 80m with this light, I haven't measured but I can attest to being able to see at least 5x the distance compared to my old cheap, no-name headlamp. There are multiple setting for the lights. The close range low power light has a wider beam and allows you to see your immediate surroundings quite well. The full power lamp has a much more focused beam, great for distance. Batteries lasted me for a few overnights,… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 5 of 5 stars It's easy to use and reuse. Two of my handwarmers broke and it was very easy to contact customer service. They emailed me back right away and sent me replacements. I purchased the handwarmers and feet warmers at an event I was at. When boiling the handwarmers, they actually burst. I was able to easily find their contact information and sent them an email. They replied within 24 hours and told me that they were sending me replacements. I got replacements a few days after that. I really do love the… Full review

Mammut Lucido TX1

rated 5 of 5 stars Minimal extrinsic-battery headlamp (meaning a giant step stronger than lamps with emitter/lens and battery all in one housing, but a giant step weaker than regulated-supply lamps with heat sinks and more or bigger cells), the TX1 is ideal for ordinary, non-critical activities that don't involve high risk or high speed. Spot is concentrated, floods are broad, both are fixed-focus. Margo Costan has a screw loose. Anyone with two functioning brain cells understands this perfectly capable headlamp isn't… Full review
