Chamois Butt’r Chamois Butt'r Original

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great skin lubricant for use just about anywhere on your body. It seems the older I get the more things I have to deal with to continue to enjoy the hiking and backpacking that I do. One item that I don't recall ever having to deal with when I was younger is chaffing in various areas that after a day or two of longer hikes, would be uncomfortable enough that I would need several days to recover before hiking again. To address the issue I went out and started looking for something to help… Full review

SlingFin CrossBow 2 Mesh Drop-In

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This accessory is designed for the CrossBow 2 StormPak, allowing the user to be well protected from insects, while minimizing weight with the bare-bones setup of the CrossBow 2. For those who want a strong tent that is easy to customize, the SlingFin CrossBow 2 is a lightweight way to do it! When using the StormPak configuration, the tent user has the option to modify this open-air setup by adding the Mesh Inner Drop-In. This accessory is a hybrid between a tent inner, and an open-bottomed centrally… Full review

TheTentLab Deuce of Spades

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the best trowel to have on any backpacking trip! Small, lightweight, sturdy! It gets the job done! There are not many out there to choose from, but this is for sure the best one! I used to have a hard plastic one, but this one is way better! I brought this on my thru hike on the JMT in August. I love it! It was lightweight and small enough to fit in any side pocket of my pack. I like how strong it is. Anyone who has been hiking through the Sierras knows that there aren't toilets in too many… Full review

PROcure Epsom Salt Rub

rated 3 of 5 stars An easy to use spot treatment for sore muscles. Mixed with aloe, it is non-greasy and odorless. When I received a sample of the PROcure Epsom Salt Rub, my first thought was this is another product making dubious claims without any science behind it. While I had certainly taken Epsom salt laden baths in the past for aches and sore muscles it just seemed a stretch for it to work as a topical product.  After using the rub for several months for a variety of muscle pains I became a believer. While… Full review

U.S. Armed Forces U.S. Military Fire Starter Trioxane Fuel Bars

rated 4 of 5 stars U.S. Military Fire Starter Trioxane Fuel Bars: These fire starter bars will start a fire in the winter with wet conditions. They are not as good as ESBIT. U.S. Military Fire Starter Trioxane Fuel Bars This comes with MREs.You should always have one of these in your pack for emergencies. Trioxane tabs are on eBay. They can be purchased for about fifteen cents each. The new ones are three and one half inches long. They are scored twice to break apart so you have three tabs for a nickel each. They… Full review

Coghlan's Fire Paste

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent for pressurizing SVEA stoves. I've used this stuff for decades. A small amount, about equal to what you might use as toothpaste on a toothbrush burns for about two minutes. Placed in the divot around the stove stem pressurizes the brass fuel cell on SVEA 123 and 123R stoves perfectly. If you catch it just as the flame starts to die out, you can even light the stove. It just works! As far as fire starting, I remember a trip to the West Rim Trail at the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania (in central… Full review

Coghlan's Fire Paste

rated 4 of 5 stars When there is no need to prove how woodsy you are it will get your fire going with no fuss. I squeeze it in to a small Nalgene container (clearly marked as not food) so as not to take the whole tube. It works great to prime my old Svea stove even in the winter. At the end of a long day of backpacking up and down the glacial hills of the Ice Age Trail it helped this tired camper to get a wood fire going easily. Full review

Coghlan's Fire Paste

rated 4 of 5 stars I wouldn't hesitate to carry it again and have my grandson carrying/using it now. I used it many times in some rough, cold, and windy conditions. Smart though to carry another form of firestarter too...like a flare ;) just in case. Full review

Coghlan's Fire Paste

rated 3.5 of 5 stars An easy quick starter for your stove or fire when you don’t feel like going through the old-fashioned way. However, it doesn’t perform as well as other options in adverse conditions. Summary I have been carrying Coghlan’s Fire Paste for about a year in all seasons to test it as my regular firestarter. It replaced other standard firestarters in my pack like Coghlan’s Fire Sticks, Emergency Tinder, and homemade Vaseline cotton balls, although I continued to carry these as a backup and comfort… Full review
