Recent Survival Gear Reviews

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

FireSteel GobSpark Armageddon

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the only firesteel I recommend now. It's never let me down and throws very hot sparks. This rod is great for survival training, bushcrafting, and as an emergency combustion source in your pack. I teach survival programs here on the West Coast of Canada. It's cold and wet a large part of the year. I have tried over a dozen different brands of ferro rods over the years and nothing beats my Gobspark Armageddon.  It's very well made. In the first model I used, I broke the handle off and the… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Waste of money. Don't get sucked in. I bought the shoulder size at a trade show. It was solid when I took it out of the box so right away I had to boil it. It leaked! So now I don't know if it's safe to use that pan or not. $100 pan, it's probably trash. Full review

Soto Pocket Torch XT

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Awesome telescope feature on a jet type lighter. They do burn down gases in between the trigger and burner. It is a fact of life. I have enjoyed the distance between my fingers and the other fuel's ignition immensely! Like my propane BBQ. Had two and used them up over a year each!. I have enjoyed the distance between my fingers and the other fuel's ignition immensely! Like my propane BBQ or the rustic pine shavings to start my fire pit. "in my front yard" "Tennessee style!" About to step out of… Full review

Primus PowerLighter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Well-made outdoor lighter optimized for lighting the stoves and campfires. Supports refilling from standard gas canisters via optional quite expensive adapter. Very convenient for outdoor use. During more than 10 years in backpacking and camping I tried numerous ways for lighting the stoves and campfires. None of them were perfect though: the matches are expendable and prone to getting wet, consumer lighters are exhausted quickly and may drain gas into your gear. I’d used the fire stone for couple… 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

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Overpriced and inconvenient. I do not recommend this product. Definitely stay away from the kiosk at the events where this item is being sold. It is a waste of money. The product worked the first time, stayed warm for about an hour. The product has to be placed in boiling water—major waste of time and energy. The product leaks after being placed in boiling water, which is a required process to restore the product. Overpriced and inconvenient. I do not recommend this product. Definitely stay away… Full review

UCO Titan Stormproof Match Kit

rated 4 of 5 stars These are some of the biggest matches that you'll ever find and that for the most part meet the manufacturer's claim of being waterproof and windproof. While the weight and size of the matches may be more than most backpackers would want to carry, these matches would be a great addition to someone's camping, emergency, or survival gear. First off I would like to say that I received these matches as a gift from Trailspace for being a past Reviewer of the Month. When I first received these matches… Full review
