ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 5 of 5 stars Easy to use. Stays warm for awhile. Knew I’d have to boil it and I like to use it as a cold pad. Knew what I was getting into and don’t mind the product at all. Great for home use, but not on the go. Couldn’t really ask for anything better. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars This product is a complete scam. Heat lasts 20 minutes. There was a hidden sign that said no refunds. Within 20 minutes of buying the product we realized that it didn’t work and went back for a refund. The sweet salesperson turned into a monster immediately. It was obvious that she gets lots of complaints almost immediately after selling the product. She was trained to be belligerent and threaten to call mall security in front of my 11-year-old daughter for no apparent reason. This was at the… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1 of 5 stars Don't waste your money. Bought these at a trade show for $276.25. Fast talking boy sold me on the products for Carpal Tunnel, Arthritis, back pain, and many other ailments. My husband is prone to all these and we were really looking forward to having a product we could use over and over again. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Right from the start, we were at a very cold trade show, tried the hand warmers to hopefully help warm us up. Literally, they felt super warm for about 15 minutes and then… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1 of 5 stars Wished that I'd seen the reviews before purchasing the back pad with the "free" foot pads for $106 at the Suffolk Peanut Fest. Pros: Fast-heating Cons: Fast-talking seller did not have any literature to back up his claim of a 10-year warranty guaranteeing three hours of heat and two hours of cold relief using warm water to "reset" the product (stated warranty would come with my receipt via email). Wished that I'd seen the reviews before purchasing the back pad with the "free" foot pads for $106… Full review

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

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
