Wild Ideas Bearikade Expedition

Perfect size for 10-nighter; most efficient volume-to-weight. MKII's benefits come to bear on trips requiring 10 person/days of food storage: 2.25 lbs of SIBBG (Sierra Interagency Black Bear Group)-tested and approved, 900-cubic-inch capacity.  I'm not aware of any legal alternative (for Yosemite or King's Canyon) close to the volume/weight ratio of the Expedition MKII. I’ve carried this can on 274 nights of outings over 12 seasons. Bearikades are made from a carbon fiber tube with high-grade… Full review

HotHands Super Warmer

The best way to endure cold temperatures when your sleeping bag is not good enough. This is a review of "HotHands Body & Hand Super Warmers - Long Lasting Safe Natural Odorless Air Activated Warmers - Up to 18 Hours of Heat - 10 Individual Warmers."  Recently took up snow camping. Discovered my 5°F sleeping bag did not keep me warm at 8°F to 16°F despite sleeping pads over 8 R rating, a good 4-season tent, synthetic thermals, down socks, down pants, down jacket, and a wool baclava. First… Full review

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

Morakniv Survival Kit for Kansbol/Garberg

A reasonably priced accessory for the popular Mora Kansbol and Garberg knives that provides a sheath-mounted ferrocerium rod for fire-starting and a diamond sharpener for field sharpening. Quality materials and solid design make this a win for any Kansbol or Garberg owner whose knife use includes fire-starting and hard tasks.   Morakniv Survival Kit for Kansbol and Garberg Background I am the sort of hiker, camper, and backpacker who is never without a knife. I’ve enjoyed going down the gram-shaving… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

Stayed hot for less than 30 minutes, then I carried a cold pack around. Horrible. Stayed hot less than 30 minutes. Horrible. Full review

Chill Out Heat Relief

Purchased on a whim, curious of what could be special about a heat-related first aid kit. I really purchased more for the cool carrying case. Has all you would need to treat heat-related issues. Think it could have had a good first aid card on how to identify heat-related issues, something that if you had no idea about (which may be why someone would purchase this item) would seem like it should be included.   The outside of the kit   The kit folds out and contains compartments for all the items… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

Terrible , ClickHeat's a scam—all of their products don’t work. If I could give no star I would. Terrible company with terrible products. Full review

SOL Thermal Bivvy

The SOL Thermal bivvy is an excellent addition to a 40-degree sleeping bag when temperatures drop and you want to add about 20 extra degrees. The bivvy is lighter than the lightest sleeping bag liners of the same temperatures. The soft material on the inside and out holds up to everyday use and doesn’t make a lot of noise like other survivor blankets.  By placing your sleeping bag inside the bivvy you turn a cool weather sleeping bag into a cold weather bag. If the bivvy is ripped or torn the… Full review
