Perfect Fitness Cooling Towel

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I, too, ended up with a nasty poison-like rash on my neck, face, forehead, and arms — every single place that I had used the towel. I ended up going to an Urgent Care facility and they gave me a regimen of prednisone. This is a horrible product. My husband used my towel just a couple times that same day on his arms and got a small rash that went away with Benadryl. I WIIL NOT BE BUYING THIS PRODUCT AGAIN AND HAVE ALREADY DISCARDED THE ONE I HAVE.  TOTALLY NOT WORTH THE MONEY! Full review

Sabre Pepper Spray

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Small, readily available via pocket or strap fixed for your defense in the woods or the street. This unit has a clip fixed to the spray canister allowing it to be as available as a pen or small pocket knife. The unit sprays up to 10 feet when the wind is favorable. I carry the unit all the time, just in case... Sparky 2000. As noted, don't allow children or idiots to get their hands on this unit. But for you the law in most states will allow the unit to be useful if needed as the spray will disallow… Full review

Compeed

rated 4 of 5 stars This blister treatment works like a dream to protect and heal any blister. They are not as effective when walking with wet feet or swimming while they are still on. In those circumstances it is best to add a waterproof covering over the Compeed. For long hikes, more than a day, I always carry a good supply. I have used these on many hikes where extended walking time has resulted in even well worn in boots rubbing a bit. They provide a good cover across the whole blister and have different sizes… Full review

Compeed

rated 5 of 5 stars A self-adhesive blister prevention/treatment that also works for calluses and corns. More expensive than Moleskin for blister prevention, but about as good as it gets for treatment of open blisters. I'd recommend having a few of these along when breaking in new boots or in the first aid kit on longer hikes and ski tours. Great stuff. For the first half of the backountry ski season this year I had something funny going on with my right little toe — it would start hurting like hell after a few hours… Full review

BugBaffler Insect Protective Headnet

rated 5 of 5 stars A no-see-um head net. Many of the woodsy areas around Chicago are restored wetlands which serve as a breeding and feeding habitat for wildlife, including mosquitos. During a four-hour hike I was not bitten once while wearing the head net. Combined with permethrin treated clothes it was a perfect system to thwart massive swarms of mosquitos. The head net fits over my full-brimmed Tilley hat and the elastic arm loops hold it in place. It fits in a pocket and the light weight makes it a no-brainer… Full review

Coghlan's Bear Bell with Magnetic Silencer

rated 5 of 5 stars Great product ! I love that I can silence it when I want to. There are areas that I hike in that I know bears are so I make noise going through area. Bear bell on wrist.I keep it on my poles all the time.I shook the bear bell a few times and blew my whistle and he looked at me and left so I could continue on the trail safely. Full review

BearVault BV400

rated 3.5 of 5 stars It's required in bear country and it does the job. That's about all I can say. It's heavy, cumbersome, small, and sometimes hard to open in freezing temperatures. It's difficult to review bear canisters because they are an absolute necessity in bear country and it doesn't matter what you think about them, you gotta have one. With that said, there are a few different ones out there and I decided on the BV400 because I am a solo hiker most of the time and not out for more than 5 days at a time, and… Full review

The Poison Ivy Soap Co Poison Ivy Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars Gets rid of active poison ivy breakouts and prevents them from starting. I purchased Poison Ivy Soap from the Poison Ivy Soap Company off Amazon a few weeks ago. This year has been hard for me. I got my first breakout in early March and have had poison ivy rashes all over my body ever since. After trying to ignore it, I tried OTC creams and astringents to no avail. After some research it came down to using a course of Prednisone that I keep for knee emergencies, or Zanfel, which is very expensive… Full review

Tyr Dry Off Sport Towel

rated 5 of 5 stars This towel was invented and marketed to competitive swimmers, but is perfect for those who like to be clean in the backcountry. It works well as a washcloth, but it works better than a cotton towel, though it must be wet for it to dry! This washcloth/towel from the swimwear company far surpasses any other similar towel product sold for backpacking. The little towel holds an incredible amount of water for washing and then can be wrung out to use for drying before handing to the next person to bathe. … Full review
