SOL Emergency Bivvy

rated 5 of 5 stars Caught out in the mountains two nights ago and used my bivvy for four hours untill daylight. Kept me dry and comfortable, even though laid out on a rock!! ( Surrounded by boggy ground). Problem now to repack!!? As above Full review

Dr. Bronner Eucalyptus Organic Bar Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars Let Dr. Bronner improve the way you stay clean with this Eucalyptus Pure-Castile Bar Soap. A soothing organic scent and an awesomely smooth lather. An all-in-one soap that has quickly become my favorite. I first read about Dr. Bronner’s on a hiking forum. It was mentioned only briefly so I decided to check out their website. I placed an order for a couple of bars of soap, shaving cream, and a bottle of liquid soap. I have been using Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Bar Soap for over 12 months now. Full review

Sea to Summit Escapist Ultra-Mesh Bug Tent

rated 2 of 5 stars Really wanted to love the large tarp + bug tent combo. Gave it 14 nights on the Tahoe Rim Trail — meadows, ridges, trees, granite, mud, wind, and rain. Sheds water like a duck. However, I'm just 5'1" and was unable to sit up under the head end except on nights where I was able to find a near perfect pitching site and didn't need to pitch low due to wind. In order to achieve full height and width at the head end of the inner tent, the front corners of the tarp have to be pitched high. This combo… Full review

Atsko Sport-Wash

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After using my tent and storing my tent in my bag and forgetting all about it—leaving it in my Forerunner for a week, while it was still wet—when I pulled it it out and saw how wet it still was, I could smell the mold. So I hand washed it with vinegar, which worked well and then I found some Sport Wash at the local True Value. After a good hand wash and some rinse, hanged it to dry on the clothesline. It came out just like new! Now I just did my 80 liter pack and it came out really well too. Full review

ScatBelt The Griz

rated 5 of 5 stars Very simple product: it's a belt that fits anyone and carries your bear spray as well as mobile phone and keys. You can walk, run, hike or bike with it and you barely know you're wearing it! It's like a Bear Spray Belt or Bear Spray Holster -- giddyup! ScatBelt has two types of belts. One is for carrying bear spray and the other is for carrying mace/alarm. The bear spray belt / holster is better than anything in the market. Disclosure: The author of this review is the designer and manufacturer of… Full review

Vargo Titanium Flint Lighter

rated 4 of 5 stars A great lightweight and dependable fire starting tool that takes up hardly any space and works in any weather. The flint is readily replaceable, making this a good long term investment. From Vargo Outdoors: A trusty Titanium tool which gives a dependable spark even in the worst conditions. This spark lighter even works after being doused with water, this is a great choice if you want a reliable way of lighting a stove whilst still being super lightweight. A built-in clip lets you easily store this… Full review

Zippo Windproof Lighter

rated 4 of 5 stars Old reliable — it's been in pockets all over the world in all situations for nearly a century. Zippo's wick lighters, the 'windproof' lighters, have been used around the world since the 1930s. The design has hardly changed, aside from updating materials, in all that time. Parts from a 1940s zippo will fit into a modern day Zippo. I carried WWII era Zippo for over a decade and the only time it let me down was when I forgot to fill it. I currently have a modern production Zippo and it's just as… Full review

InstaFire

rated 1 of 5 stars Insta-Fire Fire Starter is product that did not live up to its claims. This user was provided a package of Insta-Fire that was suppose to light up to four fires. However, I was unable to light even one in wet conditions. Let me start by saying my fire building skills are probably less than PillowThread's. That is why my rating is so different from his. Let me go back to the beginning... I wouldn't call my neighbor Carrie a “groupie,” but she sure loves to bring me stuff to try in the outdoors. Full review

Ultimate Survival Technologies Delta Shockproof Lighter

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought it new. Upon receiving, my wife washed it when she put the pants into the washer without checking the pockets. The cap was locked and the safety lock was on. When I realized it got soaked inside the washer, I took a look at the butane chamber. There was dampness inside and I left the lighter three consecutive days inside the house without closing the lid. The dampness disappeared at the end. I then read the specification and kind of understood the high quality butane requirement. A friend… Full review
