Leschi Lantern + Flashlight

rated 4 of 5 stars This small, lightweight, bright flashlight easily converts to a lantern. It's perfect for camping or backpacking. The UCO Leschi is a bright flashlight in a small package, making it ideal for car camping or backpacking. It fits easily in the palm of the hand as a flashlight and the top pops up to make it a small lantern as well. I tested the Uco Leschi light over several backpacking trips this summer, both during car camping at the trailhead and during the backpacking trip itself. I liked how the… Full review

A-120

rated 4 of 5 stars Light and comfortable on the head with an easily adjustable output, the UCO A-120 works well for in-camp lighting or after dark activity both on- and off-trail. Good battery life even on the brightest setting makes this lamp especially good for those who night hike or do other activities that require long periods of use, even if it is just reading in your tent. Product Specifications From Vendor:    BATTERY TYPE (included): 3x 1.5v AAA in external pack    BULB TYPE: CREE XP-E LED    HIGHLY… Full review

A-45 Comfort-Fit Headlamp

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light and comfortable on the head with an easily adjustable output, the UCO A-45 works well for in-camp lighting, though few would find it bright enough for night hiking. Super easy to use, making it great for children or others that may have dexterity issues. Good battery life even on the brightest setting means you won't have to be changing them all the time when the kids forget to turn the lamp off. This review was done in conjunction with the UCO A-120 which is the A-45's higher powered companion… Full review

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

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
