5.0 out of 5 stars Completely overbuilt for a purpose, August 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Trangia Fuel Bottle (Sports)
Got the 0.3 Liter size. It's a great size to run one or two spirit burners for a solid backpacking weekend. This holds 10 oz., which is 4 fills with a 5th in reserve. It's ridiculously overbuilt for a reason. It keeps a poisonous, flammable substance in a safe place, and if you camp with or around children, that will have resonance. It just exudes safety. I'll carry a couple of extra ounces for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for backpacking, car camping, power outages, etc, July 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Got these lights for backpacking, car camping, power outages, etc. I pair this up with one of the also excellent Anker 6400mAh external batteries

http://www.amazon.com/Anker-6400mAh-Portable-External-Technology/dp/B00EF1OGOG/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1437134853&sr=1-7&keywords=anker+external+battery

So for my purposes, I have a very portable solution to provide some light in the evening and keep my smartphone charged for a solid weekend in the woods or at the beach. All in all, I find it very useful. I keep one at home in my "power outage" kit, one in my primary backpacking/car camping kit for road trips and one for a guest with another battery for a guest in the second tent. The last two will be Christmas gifts for my nephews.

The light is plenty bright. It's on the blue side of the spectrum. And it's good for small children if they need to walk around the campground at night. It's inherently safer than a candle.

The 5 pack is also a great price

5.0 out of 5 stars Swiss Army Noodle Bowl, June 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great bowl. I've had mine for about two years, and have cooked pretty much everything in them. Steamed veges. Breakfast eggs. Shrimp. Reheat soup or leftovers. This is particularly useful for the frequent flyer. You can bring a warm breakfast to the airport, or buy something at the airport at 5am as you board the plane, place in this, toss in your bag knowing it's not going to get crushed or leak in your bag, grab a nap, and eat at 7am. It's not insulated so with reasonable expectations on how hot something will be in an hour, you will be happy. I like the red. It doesn't show stains from tomato sauces. I concur with some other reviewers I have had some minor pitting around the edges where water boils. Overall, in my opinion, this is a very high value item, and just extremely useful and durable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to round out the flavors, add salt to you liking, June 2, 2015
Ran across this at the Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge, LA in 2012. I got it because was cutting back on my sodium. Its an excellent, all purpose spice. Rounds out the dish with garlic, onion, red pepper, black pepper, paprika, parsley and red bell pepper, which is basically a witches brew of flavor. And then, add salt to taste, which is brilliant. I buy this specifically as opposed to less costly but more available products, as there aren't any slippery words in the ingredient list, like "spices" or "flavorings".

5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed product, May 24, 2015

A well designed product for two reasons. 1) Keeps bread from getting dented. 2) Maintains a humidity level that is good for keeping bread a week or two.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is perfect for a backpacker or a travel tromper., January 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is perfect for a backpacker or a travel tromper. Using this allows backpackers to travel multi-day trips with only two pair of underwear and socks, and keeping things on the bum and feet nice and clean. Do laundry in the evening while dinner is cooking, wring out, hang to dry in the tent. Synthetic fabrics should be close to dry in the morning, and dry in 5 minutes once you put them on. As you may know, it is GLORIOUS to put on fresh underwear and socks in the morning.

As a bonus, it has capacity to handle the light weight mid layers and anything delicate that I don't need to wash on the trail, and don't want to toss in a washing machine or take to the laundry mat with the tumble washers. Think primaloft or down jackets and vests, silk and synthetic base layers, delicate undies, hats and gloves. It's GREAT to be able to control the amount of agitation the clothing gets.

It can also serve as a dry bag for soiled clothing, so it's not just sitting there when not in "washer" mode. To be fair, it's not as robust as a proper dry bag. Take care of it, it will take care of you.

One can also see applications in any weather emergency when the power is out for days.

All in all... it's kinda use specific. Over time it should pay for itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect backup power for the road warrior or backpacker, January 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Perfect backup power for the road warrior or backpacker. Used it on a two person, 5-day backpack trip in Denali. Both of us had iphone 5s, and used one phone for the GPS and phone calls when we had a signal. Ended up charging that phone twice. The second phone we kept off as an emergency backup. The unit gave us a significant amount of confidence hiking in a very remote area. Simple, no fuss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for the road, January 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is excellent. I used it on a road trip this winter to reheat Christmas leftovers. The unit draws 45 watts. Pair it with a reasonably priced 75 watt inverter, and one can have hot meals on the road. The 6 cup pyrex fits perfectly, which is definitely big enough to feed two. All in all, this is a great product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice for driver or passenger, January 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a nice basic tray designed for a car. I used it on an 8 hour road trip in winter. It was nice to comfortably pull in to a rest stop and eat the lunch I had packed. For a driver with a passenger, it can sit on the passengers lap to provide both a place for their meal.
