Recent Safety Gear Reviews

Ultimate Survival Technologies Base Tube Tarp 1.0

rated 5 of 5 stars A light and simple emergency shelter. I got this as part of the 10 Essentials prize pack as a 2016 Trailspace Reviewer of the Month. I haven't used it on some emergency situation since I luckily haven't had one. But I have set it up just to get familiar with it. The color is right to get easily spoted when waiting for resque and the weight is, as expected, very low. I think it was at around 700gr. Perfect for carrying as a safety net on an imminent bad weather. All it takes is two trees to make… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1 of 5 stars Just bought at the LA County Fair. Too much work needed between uses. Impractical for most people. Price ripoff. BEWARE FAIR GOERS!!! At the LA Fair there are several booths selling them. Girl was very nice and demonstrated the ease of use. Initially $99.95 for one; buy two they were $49.99. Only wanted one so she sold it to me for $49. Should have been the first clue. We had to go back to the booth to get our receipt, which is when she said you need to boil it after use to get the body oils off… Full review

Boost Oxygen

rated 5 of 5 stars As a member of another website I get to try products in exchange for reviews, and I recently tested portable oxygen from Boost Oxygen. As a sea level dweller, there is always an added layer of difficulty in taking on high altitude hikes, but my canister of Boost Oxygen helped me combat the majority of symptoms I usually fall ill with when in high elevations. As someone who frequently falls ill with altitude sickness, I did not think (enjoyable) High Sierra hiking would be in the cards for me. However,… Full review

Sawyer Permethrin Premium Insect Repellent

rated 4 of 5 stars Sawyer Permethrin insect repellent is a proactive way to take action before you get into the bugs that is effective and easy to apply. Let me first say that I received my Sawyer Permethrin as a gift for being a past Reviewer of the Month here at Trailspace. As far as bugs go, I think I am average when it comes to how attracted mosquitos are to me compared to other individuals like my wife, who tends to be a mosquito magnet. My normal approach is that when I get into an area where I am starting… Full review

Fab International Water Bottle Bidet

rated 3 of 5 stars For individuals who are looking to lighten up their pack, these small light bidet attachments might be just the ticket to allow you to eliminate or cut back on the amount of toilet paper you carry. I feel kind of odd/weird writing this review as the subject of bringing a bidet on a backpacking trip is not the normal sort of topic I like to discuss related to outdoor gear, but I thought I would share my thoughts on this product in case others have been looking for alternatives to carrying a lot of… Full review

Para'Kito Mosquito Repellent Band

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Expensive but effective band with an eye catching color and pattern. Saved me from sheer torment. I was recommended the Parakito band while on holiday in Germany's Black Forest and having suffered 146 mosquito bites (Yes, I counted them!). I loved the range of designs choosing a vibrant one for myself but a more muted one for my partner. The instructions were clear and straightforward and the band was comfortable to wear. I wore the band 24/7 though took it off for showering despite the instructions… Full review

SOL Escape Pro Bivvy

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Escape Pro Bivvy blurs the line between an emergency survival shelter and an ultralight sleeping bag cover. While it is comfortable and functional in ways a mylar space blanket could never be, the Escape Pro can’t quite compare with full-fledged waterproof-breathable fabric bivvy sacks. In carving its own niche, it may have hung itself out to dry. Best For: Aspiring fastest-known-time record setters. Fastpackers and backpackers needing a just-in-case shelter. WFRs and WEMTs looking for an… Full review

Maurice Sporting Goods Air Horn

rated 5 of 5 stars Indispensable manually operated bear alert horn that does not run on compressed (expensive canned) air. Reusable, reliable, reasonable cost and VERY loud. Packs small and lightweight. Purchased (#SL57223) from Amazon for $15 awhile back for smaller backwoods hikes in northern Wisconsin. We've used these in Wisconsin for years without "close encounters." We are now in Glacier National Park and would not go ANYWHERE in Glacier (even to heavily peopled areas like the NPS Headquarters /campgrounds… Full review

Green Goo Dry Skin Care

rated 4 of 5 stars Completely organic, homeopathic solution to dry skin problems. Would definitely use to help prevent cracked heels. As a member of another website, I often get the chance to try out products in exchange for a review, and recently I was able to try out the Dry Skin product from Green Goo. During the winter and summer months I often struggle with dry skin and cracked heels. Now, regardless of the product I don't apply it like I should to prevent the condition from occurring, but I will say that I've… Full review
