Recent Running Gear Reviews

Petzl Actik

rated 4 of 5 stars It's your definitive all-purpose headlamp, plus two red modes (solid and strobe). The manufacturer specs are as follows:   Range: I think the manufacturer overstated the high-power distances. I'm going from the following baseline: back-country camping far away from urban light pollution, on a dark night without much moonlight, in a dense area with forest canopy above, and no campfire or other lights... so pretty dark. At the lowest setting (5 lm), I'd say it's similar to the 10m (30 ft) advertised. Full review

Princeton Tec Fuel

rated 1 of 5 stars This is just one of the models of theirs I've owned. All had switches go out and drain batteries when not on. POS, go with anything else. Crappy products. All models I've had drain batteries when turned off and switches fail. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1 of 5 stars Bad feeling about product. I guess it is true...there is a sucker born every day! Unfortunately, it had to be me. I went to the LA County Fair Sept 21, 2018. I spoke with a helpful girl about Clickheat. I was  told that she uses it at the hospital on patients and it was even safe on cancer patients. I wanted to buy it for my 89-year-old mom who is having compressed back issues and is in a lot of pain. I was told $199 for one piece or $299 for the kit which had the feet, back, shoulder, and neck… Full review

TheTentLab Deuce of Spades

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The #1 item for when I need to go #2. The Deuce of Spades is a great little trowel that works like a charm. I wrap a bandana around the handle to make it a little easier to use. I received this as a prize from Trailspace for being a Reviewer of the Month. A quick note: I was initially hesitant to write this review, since this product is already well covered here on Trailspace (at the time of writing, there are six reviews, all 5-stars), but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that… Full review

Princeton Tec Apex Pro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent cold weather headlamp. Excellent light for cold weather hunting, ice fishing, and search and rescue.  Full review

Incrediwear Knee Sleeve

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The best knee brace I have found for my particular aches and injuries. It feels good worn all day, doesn’t get too hot, and provides ample support for hiking and backpacking, as well as therapeutic fabric to aid blood flow and healing. My only real negative is it takes a while to dry, likely due to some minor cotton content. Waiver – since this is a medical device, albeit over the counter, I would like to clearly state that you should consult with a doctor regarding any injuries, the use of… Full review

Smidge Spray

rated 5 of 5 stars Non-DEET insect repellent, good for midges, mosquitoes, and ticks. It works! Smidge was developed in Scotland for protection against Scotland's famous midges, but it also claims to offer protection against mosquitoes, horse flies, sandflies, fleas, and ticks.  According to the Smidge website, the product does not rely on DEET but on an ingredient called Picaridin or Saltidin (the latter, if I understand right, being the trade name). It is just as effective as DEET and it works by blocking the antennal… Full review

SOL Escape Bivvy

rated 5 of 5 stars Essential gear. On its own, no bag or blanket, just with a windbreak, this takes me down to 45°F. Excellent product. Part of my kit ALWAYS. Even use it at home in cool weather, under blankets or blankets inside. No idea why others have reviewed this negatively. Maybe they are really big...? Not used to UL gear? I'm 5'6" and 160. This bivy is small. Over the last two years I have spent probably 300 nights in it. Did half a 2018 PCT in it, only adding my quilt for maybe two days a week. I finally… Full review

SOL Escape Bivvy

rated 5 of 5 stars This product is listed and marketed as an emergency bivy/shelter. However I have used this as part of my sleep system when hiking/backpacking for a few years now. It is extremely lightweight (8 oz) and packs very small. This bivy packs very smal and is extremely lightweight, making it perfect for either a bug out bag, emergency bag in your vehicle, hiking, etc. It is durable. I have used it as part of my primary sleep system on multiple section hikes over the past few years and it has held up very… Full review
