MSR Pocket Rocket 2 Stove

MSR Pocket Rocket 2 Stove My Review

Reliable and easy to use

This lightweight stove can fit in your pocket and only takes 20sec to set up. We bring foil to make a shelter around the stove so that wind doesn’t blow it out and the heat moves up towards the pot/pan. Make sure you have a level surface and no fuel leaking before use!

Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter System

Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter System My Review

Perfect for the backcountry!

I’ve been using this filter for several years and it needs no replacement filters only back flushing on occasion which is easy to do on a trip. I highly recommend this for hikers and especially canoeists because of its ease of use and consistent results. Take an old 2L pop bottle instead of the included bag as it is easier to fill and you can sit on the pop bottle to expedite the filtering.

La Sportiva Bushido II Trail Running Shoe - Men's

La Sportiva Bushido II Trail Running Shoe - Men's My Review

Great for hiking!

I wore these on a backcountry canoe trip and they were excellent protection against the rocks and roots on the trails. Not the best shoe to get wet but they dry quickly once you take them off and remove the insole. Good grip on wet rocks too.

YETI Rambler Lowball

YETI Rambler Lowball My Review

Great for hot and cold!

I use my yeti mug daily for coffee and the only downside is that it can be too hot unless you leave the lid off for a few minutes. Great for cold drinks too like iced coffees. I use it to steep tea for several hours and it’s still warm enough after 2hrs.

Wacaco MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker

Wacaco MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker My Review

Great for the backcountry

A great little coffee maker for hiking and backcountry camping! Also great for hotels and when you want that good coffee while travelling. Worked well recently in the backcountry. Does require fresh water for rinsing but not a crazy amount and make sure to clean and dry it out after your trip.
