The Poison Ivy Soap Co Poison Ivy Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars Wanted to make a comment to this review, but couldn't figure out how. I haven't heard of this product, but I will see if it works. Poison ivy and oak are known to be a curse of the pharaoh's. It was used to protect tombs and killed grave robbers, The tombs where filled with the poison ivy, over thousands of years the dust will remain active. Archaeologist and grave robbers have been known to have died from breathing in this dust and getting the poison in their lungs. I think it was king Tuts… 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

Yaktrax Hand Warmers

rated 5 of 5 stars Small enough to tuck away in your pack relatively unnoticed, but oh so nice to have when you need them. These rapid oxidation warmers can be used as labeled to warm your hands or just about any other parts you want to warm up. Pack them as survival gear if you want, but I carry them to be used for the happiness a little warmth can bring on winter trips. Yaktrax is well known for their traction devices, so when I came across their hand warmers at my local Renys (A Maine adventure!) last fall I grabbed… Full review
