Recent Survival Gear Reviews

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

Exotac titanLIGHT

rated 4 of 5 stars This dependable lighter/fire starter quite simply gets the job done! The Exotac TitanLIGHT is ideal for one who frequently lights fires in the backcountry (the controlled fire!). High visibility orange keeps the fire starter from being lost When it comes to lighters/fire starters, the Exotac TitanLIGHT is one of the premier products available for getting that campfire going. Exotac is a small, family-owned business based out of Buford, Georgia. All of their products are proudly manufactured in the… Full review

Coghlan's 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

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

Do not buy!!! I paid $107!!! Piece of @#@*...does not work, will not activate!!! I want my money back and you can't even find a website or Facebook page to do that!!!! Bogus @#%*hole company! Do not buy from. Do not buy. Do not buy. Can I write below zero?! Does not work, does not work, does not work. That is all. Do not buy. Very upset. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 5 of 5 stars It's easy to use and reuse. Two of my handwarmers broke and it was very easy to contact customer service. They emailed me back right away and sent me replacements. I purchased the handwarmers and feet warmers at an event I was at. When boiling the handwarmers, they actually burst. I was able to easily find their contact information and sent them an email. They replied within 24 hours and told me that they were sending me replacements. I got replacements a few days after that. I really do love the… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 4 of 5 stars Good product if you know all the details. We got the footsies, the back, and the shoulder warmer at a state fair. We did our research. Overall the price we paid wasn't bad. We paid 100 even. For the record, my review is not paid. I'm just a science buff and I don't spend money on frivolous things unless I've done a lot of research.  The solution inside the packs is sodium acetate. When you click the concave disk it sets off a chain reaction that will raise the pack to about 130 degrees F UNTIL… Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Garbage Product does not work very well. Hand warmers don't stay warm for more than 10 minutes and don't get very hot at that. I boiled  the hand warmers to liquify again and after boiling hand warmers stayed hot a lot longer liquefied then when you actually use the product. Full review

ClickHeat Hand/Pocket Warmer

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Do not waste your money on this product. Very involved resetting process and length of time it stays hot for is no good! Do not waste your money on this product. I recently purchased these for holiday gifts and the sales rep lied to my mother and I about the resetting process, stating that you simply just need to put it in a cup of warm water....never did he mention that the reality is that you must boil water in a pot with a towel on the bottom...much more involved that just a little warm water.
