UCO Stormproof Match Kit

rated 5 of 5 stars Okay, hopefully my final review of matches! These matches are amazing, and are now kept in our emergency kits, should we ever need to start a fire in extreme conditions. The matches are heavy duty, definitely waterproof, and the case and extra strikers make this a solid, though not expensive, addition to any emergency outdoor gear kit. We purchased this set of 25 matches,as part of the UCO set which includes a waterproof case, 25 matches, and 2 extra striker strips. These guys are heavy duty! Strong… Full review

UCO Waterproof Matches

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Last fall, I reviewed a very disappointing brand of "waterproof" matches. Since then, I have obtained two types of UCO matches, and both are amazing upgrades, and are dependable components of our fire kits. When canoe camping, and tent camping in all types of weather, we need to have reliable matches. This review is for the UCO WATERPROOF MATCHES, which we have used through last fall, winter, and early spring. These are dependably, easy to light matches, which we use for camping in all weather conditions,… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Click Heat gel packs have a small metal disc inside. When "clicked" the disc causes the gel in the pack to solidify and become hot through an exothermic reaction. They are really neat but quite impractical for the outdoors. They only last about 1/2 hour. These are just little 3 x 3 inch packets. You bend the small metal disk inside. When it clicks, there's an instant reaction that causes the gel inside to solidify. packets after "click" The heat comes instantly.  I brought these up north (Minnesota)… Full review

Black Diamond Halo 28 JetForce Avalanche Airbag Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great evolution on the airbag concept with terrific selection of features. So I got to take this pack out for a spin the other day on a Ski Mountaineering objective. It was a pretty short day and we didn't get into any terrain that we felt was particularly risky, so I never felt the need for its key feature. The pack is accurate to the rest of the BD M/L sizing. It's surprising comfortable, and breathable for a winter pack. I certainly found it rather enjoyable to wear. The bag is burly, and feels… Full review

Sawyer Extractor Pump Kit

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The Sawyer Extractor Suction Pump Kit is NOT an effective first aid device for treating the effects of snake envenomation. As a zoo professional-herpetology for 30 years I am familiar with first aid protocol and treatment for viperid and elapid envenomation in a captive setting. Until recently the Sawyer Extractor Suction Pump Kit was considered an effective first aid device for treating the victim of snake envenomation and was standard equipment in most zoo reptile houses/exhibits. No studies… Full review

Exotac NanoStriker XL

rated 5 of 5 stars Throws a nice spark, kinda like a glob if you get it right. Takes up no room. Best $20 I've spent in awhile. This pic below shows it. The first pic is a mini Maglite.As you can see it's a good size broken down. I would bet my life on this guy and getting my fire going. They give you several different color options and a smaller version. It really is a quality built piece of gear. Definitely worth the money. Full review

Jason Aloe Vera 98% Moisturizing Gel

rated 5 of 5 stars Failure to apply enough waterproof sunscreen to my face on the snowy alpine slopes on Mt Rainier, caused my entire face skin surface to burn off! A horrible highly uncomfortable recovery process and my face appearance was saved by this little tube of Aloe Vera gel. I bow down in homage to the cactus spirits that save me! -- Review in Progress -- please check back shortly! -- On a hike on Mt Rainier, Wash., to Camp Muir at 10,000', it looked like my one HEAVY application of "WATERPROOF" 60+ sunscreen… Full review

Whiz Freedom Feminine Funnel

rated 5 of 5 stars Oh my gosh. Before the Whiz Freedom, that awkward squat when everyone can tell exactly what you're doing—PEEING! You don't want anyone to see you peeing! Now with the Whiz, I can pee like a man! Sure if someone saw a dude standing with his back to the road it would be assumed he was peeing. But a woman just appears to be standing behind a car! I have been camping with this three times, but I do recommend practicing in the shower about ten times before you try it outside.  First time I used it… Full review

Coghlan's Waterproof Matches

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Since we do a lot of canoe camping, and camp in all weather, having waterproof matches seemed like a good idea. These matches will light when (lightly) wet, but I certainly will not purchase them again. These are a perfect example of "you get what you pay for." Inexpensive matches = poor quality. Yes, you get a lot of matches in this package...but we have found that so many break while you are trying to light them, that probably only half are actually usable. The stick portion is very flimsy and… Full review
