TheTentLab Deuce of Spades

rated 5 of 5 stars Overall, the Deuce of Spades is a cleverly designed latrine trowel that is incredibly lightweight, very strong, and takes up a very minimal amount of space. Makes an excellent gift for the backpacker who has just about everything. According to the manufacturer:" The Deuce of Spades™ is an ultralight backcountry latrine trowel that’s also the only trowel in the world that can be used right-side up AND UPSIDE DOWN. It only weighs .6 ounces but it’s super effective and ridiculously tough." Initial… Full review

Coghlan's Biodegradable Camp Soap

rated 4 of 5 stars It's a handy, portable, fairly effective soap. Easy to transport, not very messy, doesn't smell too bad and isn't too harsh. We got the chance to try this soap out on our annual coastal car-camping trip. First time, we approached it from a 'try and see' standpoint, figuring that if it works well, then we can stop lugging along actual dish soap, which would be an improvement in many ways. Short answer: We'll be taking it along again in the future. Long answer: This is a pretty reasonably performing… Full review

Coghlan's Waterproof Fire Sticks

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent, effective, and affordable fire starter tinder that light easily with match or lighter as well as with a ferrocerium rod. Perfect for inclement weather or for those occasions when you don't want to wrestle with seeking dry natural tinder. Great for backpackers, car campers, hunters, and more. Those who frequent backcountry areas with established campsites and fire rings often enjoy the classic thrill of being warmed by or even cooking over an evening camp fire, but adverse weather conditions,… Full review

SOL Origin

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great Grab n` Go survival kit for backpacking or hiking trips. The SOL Origin is just the right amount of equipment if you find yourself in bad way. The compass, knife, and fire strike are a "must have" in any survival scenario. The whistle and flash signal mirror may just be the difference between being rescued or not. The LED light,  cordage and fishing kit are great extras, along with the 62 point survival instructions, and the ability to add items like water tablets and and a water… Full review

SOL Emergency Bivvy

rated 5 of 5 stars Caught out in the mountains two nights ago and used my bivvy for four hours until daylight. Kept me dry and comfortable, even though laid out on a rock!! (Surrounded by boggy ground.)Problem now to repack!!? Full review

Dr. Bronner Eucalyptus Organic Bar Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars Let Dr. Bronner improve the way you stay clean with this Eucalyptus Pure-Castile Bar Soap. A soothing organic scent and an awesomely smooth lather. An all-in-one soap that has quickly become my favorite. I first read about Dr. Bronner’s on a hiking forum. It was mentioned only briefly so I decided to check out their website. I placed an order for a couple of bars of soap, shaving cream, and a bottle of liquid soap. I have been using Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Bar Soap for over 12 months now. Full review

Sea to Summit Escapist Ultra-Mesh Bug Tent

rated 2 of 5 stars Really wanted to love the large tarp + bug tent combo. Gave it 14 nights on the Tahoe Rim Trail — meadows, ridges, trees, granite, mud, wind, and rain. Sheds water like a duck. However, I'm just 5'1" and was unable to sit up under the head end except on nights where I was able to find a near perfect pitching site and didn't need to pitch low due to wind. In order to achieve full height and width at the head end of the inner tent, the front corners of the tarp have to be pitched high. This combo… Full review

Atsko Sport-Wash

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After using my tent and storing my tent in my bag and forgetting all about it—leaving it in my Forerunner for a week, while it was still wet—when I pulled it it out and saw how wet it still was, I could smell the mold. So I hand washed it with vinegar, which worked well and then I found some Sport Wash at the local True Value. After a good hand wash and some rinse, hanged it to dry on the clothesline. It came out just like new! Now I just did my 80 liter pack and it came out really well too. Full review

ScatBelt The Griz

rated 5 of 5 stars Very simple product: it's a belt that fits anyone and carries your bear spray as well as mobile phone and keys. You can walk, run, hike or bike with it and you barely know you're wearing it! It's like a Bear Spray Belt or Bear Spray Holster -- giddyup! ScatBelt has two types of belts. One is for carrying bear spray and the other is for carrying mace/alarm. The bear spray belt / holster is better than anything in the market. Disclosure: The author of this review is the designer and manufacturer of… Full review
