Sawyer Permethrin Insect Repellent Treatment for Clothing, Gear, and Tents

rated 5 of 5 stars Love, love, love this stuff! Keeps bugs and ticks away. No smell for hunting. Lasts many, many days on treated garments and gear. This is a MUST for the outdoorsman or outdoorswoman! Much better than stinky, dangerous DEET. Can also use on pets. Full review

Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this product! A real lifesaver when camping, fishing, hunting, picnicking, and fixing fence in tall weeds on our farm! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to enjoy their outdoor activities without pesky bugs! Full review

Ursack AllMitey

rated 5 of 5 stars I'LL NEVER USE A BEAR CAN AGAIN (unless I have to...). We have all used BearVault or similar bear canisters. And although they do what they're supposed to they are an unarguable pain in the butt. Heavy, bulky, they take up the same amount of space in our packs whether we are on day one or day 10... Ursack is collapsable, about half the weight of BearVault, and carries the same, if not more food.  Unfortunately they are not yet approved in all of the National Parks, but I wouldn't be surprised if… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1 of 5 stars I bought ClickHeat at the World of Wheels Auto Show in Rosemont a week or so ago. I spent $80 and the first time I used the packs it leaked onto my new sheets and mattress. I emailed Customer Service and spoke with Jodi Dobrinsky (757-472-9123) and she was by far the worse customer service rep I have ever dealt with in all my life. She sends me an attachment showing that my money was nonrefundable and no where on the box nor the receipt does it state this was nonrefundable and I advised her of that. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Complete waste of money! Do not buy these from the slick gimmick sellers as I did at the IX Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Complete waste! Just threw in fire pit....gonna see what color happens. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 1 of 5 stars Don't WASTE your money—Scam! DON'T waste your money—it is all a scam!! The ice pack you cannot put in the freezer, ONLY the fridge so it does not even get cold. Then the heat no longer works. PLUS they lie. There is NO 10-year warranty. The minute I got home I had a feeling it was a scam. I read the reviews and they confirmed all the feelings I had. If the boat show was still going on today, I would drive all the back there and confront the sales guy. How can he do this day after day knowing… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Worst purchase ever. I purchased ClickHeats (I am ashamed to say $300 worth) so a lot of hand warmers a couple of feet and shoulder ones and a couple of back one that go inside a holder to stay in place. So far out of them 10 hand ones, one foot one, and one shoulder/neck one will not (after placing it in bowling water) go back to the liquified state, and if it does, once I take it out of the water it becomes hard again with out clicking it. Those are the only ones I have opened, so out of the ones… Full review

Schrade Ferro Rod Fire Striker

rated 3 of 5 stars This is a small lightweight ferro rod and striker on a lanyard. I would recommend this item for an emergency situation, ie bug out bag, get home bag, or backup in hiking/camping gear. So I picked this item up from Amazon mainly due to the price. However, I was very pleased with the product. It appears to be well made and does throw a good amount of sparks. It is only 1/4" diameter, so if you are needing something bigger, this isn't for you. But for an emergency fire starter or a backup fire starter,… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Sold by Berko Productions of Miami, FL (and some cites also say NY, NY) at Providence Place Mall in Providence, RI. Scam artists selling a ridiculously overpriced, poor quality product (ClickHeat) with lies, lies, lies! As I wrote above, bought this lumbar pack (with sleeve) at Providence Place mall in Rhode Island a few days ago. Activated and wore while remaining in mall. Was told by salesperson that heat would last two hours. It lasted 30 minutes. While still in the mall, I looked up the company… Full review
