Six Moon Designs Silver Shadow Carbon Trekking Umbrella

The Silver Shadow Carbon Trekking Umbrella is a versatile, durable and lightweight accessory. It's an easily-deployed shelter from the sun and precipitation. I especially found it useful on the AT when it was too hot to wear a rain jacket but too consistently rainy to suffer days being wet. I've worked out a pretty good system for attaching the umbrella to my pack, leaving my hands free. It also doubles as a pack cover, tent pole, privacy screen, and large animal deterrent. . The most classic of… Full review

Trailspace Sticker

Super lightweight and fits almost anywhere and guaranteed to stick to most things. Unlike any other sticker (well, unless you get two, then they are probably the same). An unusual  and unique sticker that is Non-GMO, vegan, easy to use and low carb, low calorie, and low on taste. I have years of experience in using stickers and this is one of the best! Yep, here it is on a WildIdeas bear can—even the bears enjoy it.    Full review

Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 Binoculars

When you want to bring nature up close and personal you need good binoculars and Celestron fills this need nicely. Their 15 x 70 Binoculars are an economical choice for stargazing as well as viewing wildlife at a safe distance. I was given my original Celestron 15 x 70 binoculars four years ago as a present. I wanted them for stargazing when using a telescope was impractical. They were great for locating comets and even viewing distant objects such as the Orion Nebula. While bulky and heavy (48oz.

Flowfold RFID Blocking Minimalist - Card Holder Wallet

A sleek and sturdy little wallet that easily carries 6-8 cards and a few folded bills. Makes for a great wallet on backcountry trips where weight is a concern, and with RFID-blocking technology, it’s a great wallet for everyday use too. Conditions: I’ve used the Flowfold RFID Blocking Minimalist wallet for 7 months now as my everyday wallet. I’ve carried some form of a slim wallet for about 10 years and this is without hesitation the best one I’ve found.    Specs: Capacity: 6-8 credit… Full review

Six Moon Designs Silver Shadow

The SMD Silver Shadow is a trail umbrella designed to protect rain or shine. Light and easy to carry it pops up fast and stows easily. Not very functional for bushwhacking, but great for use on open trails, ridges, and road walks where trees don't get in the way.

Swing Trek Liteflex Umbrella

These umbrellas actually keep you much cooler. It blocks the direct sun rays off you, thus cooler. As I said above, golfers use these same products all the time with great success. So if you are out in direct sun and you don't mind extra gear it's perfect. Go for it. Full review

Swing Trek Liteflex Umbrella

A hiking umbrella may not be for everyone but it has certainly earned its place in my pack over the course of several long thru-hikes. The Swing Trek Liteflex is a multi-use piece of gear and has contributed greatly to my enjoyment of the outdoors. I recommend this particular umbrella for anyone seeking a durable, lightweight, and easily-deployed shelter from the sun, rain, hail, and wind. You’ll likely find that it has many other uses, too. Conditions: The excellent review by JRinGeorgia pretty… Full review

Arcade Nomad Belt

Multi-adjustable, buckled stretchable belt keeps your pants up without being bulky. For years I have had a problem wearing a belt to keep my pants up while backpacking. With many of my hiking pants having belt loops rather than a built-in belt or elastic waist, I end up with a belt buckle right under my pack's waist buckle. Many times this causes me to either hike up the pants to get the buckle above the waist belt or put up with an uncomfortable situation. This all ended when I received the Nomad… Full review

Swing Trek Liteflex Umbrella

This trekking umbrella is a great multi-use piece of gear. It is ultra lightweight and offers protection from sun and rain, keeps you cooler, you can use it hands-free, and it does much more. This is a review of the silver reflective-coated Swing Trek Liteflex Trek umbrella. I am not connected to the maker of this umbrella in any way. I got it on a good sale from Amazon, it typically retails for $40-$45. This umbrella has been licensed and marketed through a lot of different channels, so this umbrella… Full review
