BSN Medical Leukotape P

rated 5 of 5 stars Leukotape P has replaced moleskin as my material of choice for preventing blisters. I have always had tender feet and been susceptible to blisters, so I take preventive measures and will tape my feet before a long hike.  A few years ago I noticed people on hiking forums making positive comments about Leukotape P, so I gave it a try and it has now become my material of choice to prevent blisters and is something I always carry in my pack. One of the best things about the tape for me is that it is… Full review

Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great evolution to their older handhelds, which were bulky and require their proprietary fuel cartridges. I hate DEET. I feel this is a far better solution. I've used the handhelds for years from BBQ's to week-long backpacking trips. These just plain work and you don't have to cover yourself in DEET! These are smaller, lighter, and don't require Thermacell fuel! I've already tested this new unit and it works flawlessly.  Full review

Sawyer Permethrin Premium Insect Repellent

rated 5 of 5 stars I have used DEET and other products since the early 1980s, but Permethrin treated clothes are much more effective in tick prevention based on my experience in tick-infested areas. Sawyer Permethrin can keep ticks from landing and biting, and can actually kill them on your clothes. It is the repellent I depend on for work and recreation—effective and easy to apply. A recent forum thread reminded me I hadn’t reviewed bug protection products that I planned to write up last year.  With today being… Full review

Sawyer Picaridin Insect Repellent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have used DEET and other products since the early 1980s as mosquito and tick prevention for work and play, but now am a full convert to Sawyer Picaridin and Permethrin combination to keep the bugs away. Picaridin has similar effectiveness to DEET without the worries about plastic degrading and other effects on gear. A recent forum thread reminded me I hadn’t reviewed bug protection products that I planned to write up last year.  With spring coming on and today being excellent gear-treating… Full review

Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller

rated 4 of 5 stars An excellent solution to the eternal mosquito problem. Face it. One of the most uncomfortable things out in the wilderness is those little insects that bother, bite, and suck our blood. It can make a lovely trip a nightmare. Thermacell has for many years made mosquito repellent devices for home, patio, and hunters/anglers. But most of their products are too bulky and heavy for backpacking. New this year is their "Backpacker" model, which is designed for those of us who travel light. The heart of… Full review

AT Beard Mower

rated 2 of 5 stars Had a date on the AT after three weeks on the trail. I tried to groom myself and it backfired. Had to settle on roasting marshmallows instead. She was a little confused. Next time I will just go for it. Full review

AT Beard Mower

rated 5 of 5 stars Created by experienced Appalachian Trail thru-hikers, the Beard Mower is a "must have" for anyone hiking a long trail. Compact and lightweight, the Beard Mower makes personal hygiene easier to maintain. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought at a trade show. Product was grossly misrepresented! Last 20 minutes, if that. They said up to 4 hours. They said you restore by placing in warm water. Reality is you have to complete boil in water for 8-10 minutes. Little to say other than this group misrepresents a product that leaves no impression other than a scam after you learn it does 5-10% of what they say it will do. Strongly advise against any purchases from this item or company. Full review

Gerber Bear Grylls Fire Starter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this firestarter. It really does the job each and every time! Overall I think this is a great product and I am quite happy with my purchase!! Full review
