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

Exotac FireRod

rated 4 of 5 stars A high quality fire starter tool. FIRE -- Oh Oh!! No matter how light I try to get in my pack weight, there are two things that I always keep three of: water treatment and fire starting. Call me paranoid. Anyway, along with a mini-Bic in my pack hip belt and waterproof matches in my first aid kit, I keep this little nifty tool from Exotac. It's called the fireRod — a ferrocerium fire starter (which is similar to flint/steel, but a bit easier to use and is the "flint" found in butane lighters). Full review

UDAP No-Fed-Bear Canister

rated 3 of 5 stars Kept bears and critters out. Intermediate size fit my pack and my needs better than other brands. Hard to decide how many stars to give this, but it is an average bear canister, great size, and has excellent customer service. This is an approved and certified bear canister that meets the requirements along the John Muir Trail. I chose this particular canister because the intermediate size fit my backpack and my needs better than the other brands.  Unfortunately the locks on the lid seized up during… Full review

Tick Key The Tick Key

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This product is great way to remove ticks if prevention falls. It is painless and helps reduce disease transmission by reducing the chance a tick will regurgitate. You can even use it on your pets. Gear Review: Liberty Mountain Tick Key For today’s post, I will do our first gear review. The piece of equipment under review is the Tick Key by Liberty Mountain, which has become an important tool for both BeeGee and me. This tool is one our essential pieces and always goes with us in our first aid… Full review

Podsacs Waste Management System L

rated 4 of 5 stars A dry bag with little features that make it ideal for carrying out both synthetic and human waste from the wilderness. Perfect organizational tool for managing waste and practicing the Leave No Trace philosophy. The product is well put together and more than adequate for the task. So what are these? Well basically they are a dry bag that has two enclosures to prevent leaking, and a bright red colour and warning sign not to be mistaken for anything else! They are intended for storing and carrying… Full review

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
