U-Dig-It Folding Hand Shovel and Trowel

rated 4 of 5 stars A sturdy folding trowel for doing trowel-related business. Not exactly UL, but it won't break or bend even when prying rocks or chipping at compacted soil. Needless to say, this was a very popular item on our 8-person, 24-day hike on the JMT. The U-Dig-It Pro handled all that traffic with aplomb, allowing for safe and adequately deep deposits of bodily fruits in the Sierra's tough, rocky soils. My daughter kept it on one of the compression straps on the outside of her pack so it was always available… Full review

SOLKOA Fastfire Fire Starting Kit

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A good fire kit for anyone who may need to light a fire—camper, backpacker, hunter, or stranded traveler—especially under adverse conditions. Just familiarize yourself with the limits of the hacksaw striker, which gouges the ferro rod badly and struggles to cast sparks in the rain. SOLKOA Fastfire Fire Starting Kit Note: The following review is a bit involved; please use the following outline to expedite locating information of interest to you. I. Product Specifications II. Testing III. Faststrike… Full review

BearVault BV450 Solo

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Bear Vault Solo is a quality product that satisfies its functional requirements well. The BV450 serves its purpose well. I have heard of only one sow in the Adirondaks that has figured out to open it. I have been using this product for the past 5 years when I am in bear country. Although untested by bears it has kept my food supply safe and dry. The convenience of not hanging a bear bag and having a good camp stool compensates for the 2 # added to my pack. Full review

BearVault BV450 Solo

rated 4 of 5 stars Best bear canister solution available — at least of those that I know of. All bear canisters are a nuisance, but the BearVault design addresses the critical problems with the designs that require a coin to open. Large opening and transparent sides make it easy to load and retrieve the contents. We picked up two BV450 BearVaults three years ago and have used them several times on trips to the Wind River range in Wyoming. We use two instead of a single large one. This allows for redundancy in case… Full review

Garcia Backpackers' Cache

rated 2 of 5 stars Better than nothing. I've used the Garcia product a few times. While it may serve the need, it is difficult to load, due to the small opening. Who in the world carries a coin while backpacking. The screw-like closure is a pain to open. Is it effective? If it is hard for me to open and get stuff out, it will certainly be so for a bear. Full review

Sawyer Extractor Pump Kit

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the only proven snake bite kit on the market!!! This is a very nice kit for stings and snake bites. It is the only one proven successful on the market. The others are dangerous. The Sawyer only pumps the wound/bite area. The others use old school methods that do worse than good, like cutting the bite area and using a tourniquet. This is very dangerous. This kit comes with everything to clean/sanitize the area, razor to shave hair in area, and a powerful pump to draw out venom/poison with… Full review

Mautz Fire Ribbon

rated 5 of 5 stars Instant fire in a tube. Mautz Fire Ribbon is a naptha paste in a tube (translate that to napalm). While it can actually be used to cook with, the odor would be somewhat displeasing.  My main use for the product is for priming my gasoline stoves, especially if I need to use them in a tent. The paste is easy to place in the spirit cup of the stove, and it burns hot without the typical flaring that occurs with gasoline priming. On the package Mautz advertises the Fire Ribbon will "light wet wood". Full review

Bison Designs Capsule

rated 5 of 5 stars I use a statin for elevated cholesterol and it comes in the form of small pills. I needed a way to carry the pills in all weather all the time so I tried the Bison Designs Capsule. It's a small (comes in three sizes) aluminum tube with a rubber O-Ring seal on the lid. It works GREAT! In fact, I once forgot to take the capsule out of my pants and sent it through a complete wash cycle in our machine and the pills were dry and fine. This is a simple, durable and effective device if you need to be certain… Full review

Yeti-Exner Design Bear Proof Cooler Locks

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This lock is easy to use and the cable is strong. I would not leave my cooler unattended for a long period of time since a thief with wire cutters could drink your adult beverages. The lock is effective, more so a deterrent from bears rather than unscrupulous people. It is strong. Full review
