UCO Stormproof Match Kit

rated 5 of 5 stars Okay, hopefully my final review of matches! These matches are amazing, and are now kept in our emergency kits, should we ever need to start a fire in extreme conditions. The matches are heavy duty, definitely waterproof, and the case and extra strikers make this a solid, though not expensive, addition to any emergency outdoor gear kit. We purchased this set of 25 matches,as part of the UCO set which includes a waterproof case, 25 matches, and 2 extra striker strips. These guys are heavy duty! Strong… Full review

UCO Waterproof Matches

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Last fall, I reviewed a very disappointing brand of "waterproof" matches. Since then, I have obtained two types of UCO matches, and both are amazing upgrades, and are dependable components of our fire kits. When canoe camping, and tent camping in all types of weather, we need to have reliable matches. This review is for the UCO WATERPROOF MATCHES, which we have used through last fall, winter, and early spring. These are dependably, easy to light matches, which we use for camping in all weather conditions,… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Click Heat gel packs have a small metal disc inside. When "clicked" the disc causes the gel in the pack to solidify and become hot through an exothermic reaction. They are really neat but quite impractical for the outdoors. They only last about 1/2 hour. These are just little 3 x 3 inch packets. You bend the small metal disk inside. When it clicks, there's an instant reaction that causes the gel inside to solidify. packets after "click" The heat comes instantly.  I brought these up north (Minnesota)… Full review

Hillsound FreeSteps6

rated 4.5 of 5 stars SO FAST to throw on my feet, and very quick to remove! I LOVE the Freesteps for light hiking, walking on icy streets, and even trail running! Full review

Princeton Tec Byte

rated 4 of 5 stars This is one awesome headlamp. Light and bright, well bright enough for me. Had mine for about three years, maybe more? Three settings of light and easy to adjust. This was a gift to me after a fall in the dark at Camp Daniel Boone in WNC. It got 70 lumens up to 30 meters. At 2.26 it is light and small. The hi and low settings are bright. The red light function is great for not waking the whole camp at night. Mine was a gift. But they run about 23 to 30 bucks. Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Easy off and on and great traction, especially down hill. I was stopped on the way down by two hikers to ask me about my spikes because I wasn't slipping like they were. They were amazed by the traction from my Kahtoolas. Easy to put on and take off even with cold fingers. Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Great product for winter enthusiasts. These are awesome. They give you such good footing on very slippery ice and they're easy to put on over a boot with the stretch of the upper material. Very good piece of gear. Highly recommended for anyone that hikes in the winter. Full review

Yaktrax Pro

rated 0.5 of 5 stars My pair broke after just two snowstorms in a two-week period. I used them while I was shoveling my driveway, and they literally had only a few hours' use on them. The rubber seemed to be cut by the "new shaped edge coil design" touted on the package. Waste of money. Try something else! I've purchased many pairs of Yaktrax Pros over the years, and they typically lasted two years. I'd use them when I was out shoveling my driveway after snowstorms in the Northeast. But my most recent pair, bought in… Full review

Sawyer Extractor Pump Kit

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The Sawyer Extractor Suction Pump Kit is NOT an effective first aid device for treating the effects of snake envenomation. As a zoo professional-herpetology for 30 years I am familiar with first aid protocol and treatment for viperid and elapid envenomation in a captive setting. Until recently the Sawyer Extractor Suction Pump Kit was considered an effective first aid device for treating the victim of snake envenomation and was standard equipment in most zoo reptile houses/exhibits. No studies… Full review
