Tinkle Belle The Tinkle Belle

The Tinkle Belle is a urinary device that allows women to pee on the go. In just a few moves, you can set yourself up to pee standing up with a product like this one. MSRP: $27.50 Have you ever been stuck in a dirty restroom, and you didn’t want to squat near the toilet to tinkle? Do you ever wish that you could pee in the backcountry as easily as men? There’s nothing worse than having to slip your harness off to pee. But you don’t have to anymore.  The Tinkle Belle The Tinkle Belle is a… Full review

Coleman Camp and Sport Towel

Coleman does it again with a quick drying lightweight camp towel. One of many campers' and hikers' problems is carrying extra weight and packing room so bringing your bathroom towel is out of the question. This Quick-Dry Polyester fabric dries extremely fast and is so thin you can use it opened up as a liner for your backpack so that in essence it takes up no extra room in your pack. And talk about being super absorbent. I am not a small guy but this towel dries my whole body in no time. I even… Full review

RinseKit Pro 3.5 Gallon Portable Shower

The RinseKit PRO is a 3.5 gallon battery-pressurized portable shower that offers superior pressurization, capacity, and portability compared to other portable showers. It's perfect for showering at the campsite, portable hand washing, portable dishwashing, and much more. I bought a RinseKit PRO portable shower for bathing on the campsite. After I brought it camping with me, I realized it had many more uses than I initially anticipated. Its 3.5--gallon capacity meant that I had a lot of water left… Full review

Perfect Fitness Cooling Towel

I too have had a raised red painful itchy rash wherever this towel touched my neck or chest for two weeks after a 30-minute walk. Took a few hours to develop after use, so you cannot feel it happening until it is too late. Do not let this touch your skin. Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

We have to use this at work as Deet isn't allowed due to wearing rubber gloves. They say there's a chance the rubber could be compromised. This stuff works ok. I still get eat up from time to time. The biggest drawback that hasn't been mentioned is that the stuff STINKS! The smell is just strong. There's still no replacement for Deet that I've found. Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

Very effective I have used this product for a couple years now. I moved from DEET after it damaged some of my hiking equipment. Be prepared to have plastic goo on your hands after applying DEET and handling equipment unless you wash your hands after application. I have read conflicting articles concerning DEET over the years and decided it just wasn't worth the possible health risk to continue using it. I found Repel to be very effective against mosquitoes, but it is not long-lasting.  Reapplication… Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

As a biochemist, I have to mention that Eucalyptus oil and DEET, along with almost every chemical on the planet, are both toxic at some doses. The public has the erroneous idea that "natural" chemicals are inherently safe and synthetic chemicals are dangerous. One of the most toxic chemicals ever discovered is a natural compound, botulinum toxin. The estimated lethal dose is 85 to 137 nanograms per adult human. Approximately one ounce would be enough to kill every person in the USA. Aflatoxin, a… Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

Works well for mosquitoes, does not damage synthetic fabrics, less likely to have health risks. This is the best non-DEET repellent I have tried. It works well for mosquitoes, possibly for ticks, but I just try hard to avoid them anyway, so it is hard to say. It does not last as long as DEET, but I don't mind re-applying. The absolute biggest benefit is that it does not damage synthetic fabrics. Since most of my hiking, biking, running, etc. shirts, hats, and pants are both synthetic and expensive… Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

I fish trout streams in southwestern Michigan. The mosquitoes hold their conventions on these streams. Lemon oil- eucalyptus works quite well. YOU CAN GET IT FOR $4.97 AT WAL MART. Full review
