Ultimate Survival Technologies
I give it 3 stars. It's okay for short summer trips when you need a cup of coffee to get you going in the morning. It was made well, but for some odd reason I like my Esbit from 15 years ago better. Not sure why. All in all it's worth $3-5 dollars. Full review
I too have used this product and love it for an entirely different reason, but basically the same functionality with a twist. This is a very good light but heavy duty tarp that I use as a floor liner in my tent when I camp with my two dogs. One of my dogs is a Dalmatian that is a total wimp about staying warm, the other is a Border Collie. This blanket helped keep the tent much warmer than without it AND protected the floor from two dogs' toenails that I forget to keep very short. They have… Full review

I am not a typical backpacker, making long treks cross country. I typically go in and set up a base camp and then spend the next few days… Full review
Light-enough, bright-enough >120 lumen, four AA battery-powered hanging mini-lantern. Get it only if it's cheap. It's a water-resistant, shock-resistant, sturdy, compact, cheap (I got it for $10 from GearTrade.com + shipping) three-mode, battery-powered hanging lantern. It's a good light for what it is. It's great for camping, I routinely use it walking around my house looking for our dogs off sniffing game where I live in the mountains and it's great at throwing out a nice even aura of light… Full review
