Squeeze Tubes

rated 4 of 5 stars We used these in 1973 while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. I don't think they ever failed. We used them for peanut butter,jam,and honey.We kept them in the cooking pot so they wouldn't be squeezed. My brother Michael and I think they were a great tool.The only problem with them was we emptied them to fast. Full review

Squeeze Tubes

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I use them for peanut butter. Haven't had a problem cleaning them. Put the cap on, fill with water, and let sit to loosen the peanut butter. I also use a jar/bottle cleaner. For butter, I use the small plastic containers McCormick spices come in. I also use small (unused) urine containers I got from my internist. The only problem I have had with them is the prongs on the clips are prone to breaking. I have seen clips for sale but don't recall where. Full review

Squeeze Tubes

rated 4.5 of 5 stars There is nothing better but...

They were advocated by our friend Colin Fletcher as a container for margarine but he noted that an excellent use would be for peanut butter, which is true. I have used them for… Full review

Flint Striker

rated 3 of 5 stars Looks good, but as supplied does not perform. I bought this Ferro fire steel online from a very reliable survival training centre with their recommendation from students' field use where they said that it was good for over 4,000 strikes. I was therefor most surprised to find it didn't produce a spark at all with the pressed steel striker supplied. With the Light My Fire striker it was a very different story—massive spark every time. I filed and ground the Coghlan's striker to give a good 90-degree… Full review

Store 'N Pour Contain-Alls

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A collection of small containers perfect for carrying small portions rather than full containers. Five bottles, two with flip spouts, plus two round containers with snap lids. Came across this today while picking up some fishing line and decided to add a second set of these to the family inventory. I've been using the first set for six years now and it is still in use. Just wanted to get some more for the girls to use this summer. These things have an endless number of uses depending on what you… Full review
