Ultimate Survival Technologies Delta Shockproof Lighter

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought it new. Upon receiving, my wife washed it when she put the pants into the washer without checking the pockets. The cap was locked and the safety lock was on. When I realized it got soaked inside the washer, I took a look at the butane chamber. There was dampness inside and I left the lighter three consecutive days inside the house without closing the lid. The dampness disappeared at the end. I then read the specification and kind of understood the high quality butane requirement. A friend… Full review

Friendly Swede Paracord Bracelet

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Officially called "The Friendly Swede Adjustable Premium Paracord Bracelet with Fire Starter and Sharp Eye Knife," this paracord bracelet includes a useful emergency fire steel and a cutting implement that doubles as a fire steel striker in addition to about 17 ft/5.18 m of paracord. Quality components make this a good survival-style bracelet for anyone who doesn't mind the bulk of this hefty bracelet—campers, hunters, or anyone who wishes to be prepared for the unexpected. What It Is Paracord… Full review

SOL Escape Bivvy

rated 0.5 of 5 stars A mylar blanket does a better job of reflecting heat. I've tested this bivy in temps from the 40s down into the teens. Every time I ended up colder than when I didn't use it at all. Instead of reflecting heat back to me, the Escape Bivvy seemed to conduct heat away from my body like a heat sink. I contacted customer service and their idea was that the bivy was compressing the insulation in my mummy bag. That sounded like a good theory since it doesn't offer much room with a sleeping bag inside. Full review

Climb On Bar

rated 5 of 5 stars Not just for climbers!!! This all natural, chemical free product helps repair sore fingers and knuckles. "If you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin." Climb On! has been accompanying me on all of my camping trips for the last couple of years, as well as helping me out any time my hands get in rough shape. It's antiseptic, antimicrobial, and healthy on so many other levels!  Ingredients: Unrefined yellow beeswax apricot kernel oil essential oil of lavender grapeseed oil virgin wheat germ oil… Full review

Gerber Gator Combo

rated 2 of 5 stars A disappointing product from Gerber who is normally renowned for quality and innovative equipment. This appears to be a gimmick aimed at the gift market. Forged steel head with overmolded handle. I bought this for use on the odd night or two camping in the woods when a fire would be needed. Whilst it is a good idea in principle, it fails in practice. The axe is well weighted and cuts small wood well enough. The knife is quite small and I would have preferred something at least an inch longer. The… Full review

SOL Emergency Blanket

rated 3 of 5 stars Best when new. I used this once to keep my butt dry while I sat on a riverbank while my son played in the water. It is not a very good thermal barrier, being so thin heat conducts to the ground right through it. The aluminum coating might reflect radiant heat and as a tarp it certainly will keep you dry and out of the breeze. That said when I went to use it a second time all of the aluminum reflective material had come off. It still will make a light ground cloth or an emergency tarp, but its claim… Full review

Adventure Medical Kits Travel Medic

rated 2 of 5 stars Save your money and put your own kit together. After taking a wilderness first aid course I decided to put together a backcountry first aid kit. This seemed like it could be the core of a lightweight kit. There were some antiseptic wipes and alcohol swabs, which were nice but there were also a few packets of typical medicine cabinet drugs that were near expiration. There were low-end adhesive bandages that are next to worthless as they won't stay on. Worst of all was the moleskin, pre cut — hope… Full review

BearVault BV500

rated 4.5 of 5 stars All bear canisters are heavy and bulky, but this one makes up for some that by being transparent, secure, versatile, and fairly priced. If you're in a place that requires a canister then this is an excellent choice. I've had my Bearvault BV500 for many years now and have used it several times in the high Sierra of California. It's my guess that no one wants to carry a bear canister due to their bulkiness and weight, but the BV500 has some features that make is a good choice when you have no choice… Full review

Sea to Summit Escapist Ultra-Mesh Bug Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars A non-free standing shelter by design that works well with a variety of conditions and platforms. It can be pitched with a pair of trekking poles or in between two trees. It's a versatile shelter that can be used as a ground shelter or even as a hammock tarp. Since this is a modular system, the weight can be easily be distributed between two people. Best used for 3-season backpacking and can be used as a solo or 2-person shelter. Manufacturer Specs: http://www.seatosummit.com.au/products/bug-protection/escapist/… Full review
