    This Thing Actually Works

    posted by taylorcm76 on 11/17/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It's cheap. It weighs next to nothing. It's cheap. It takes up very little space. It's cheap. IT WORKS! The compas is supprisingly accurate. The light is bright. The whistle is loud. The fire starter provides a large spark for such a small rod.
    Cons:
    Celcius only for the thermometer.

    Good Gear

    posted by taylorcm76 on 11/11/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Seems to be very well constructed. A bit larger than the name brand competition. Holds my large SIGG bottle nicely with plenty of room for a nesting cup and some other small gear in just the main pocket.
    Cons:
    None so far. As with all gear, the stitching can only be judged over time but nothing jumps out as a problem.

    NECESSARY GEAR!!

    posted by taylorcm76 on 10/19/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a very simple piece of gear and you would think that it would be hard to screw up. Buy one at even close to this price in a surplus store or camping store here and see if you still think that. This works so much better that my big-box store flint ...
    Cons:
    None, they just plain got this right.

    Not bad but not great

    posted by taylorcm76 on 10/19/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Small, light, works on most of my stuff. Couldn't be easier to use. The instructions are in Chineese, but have an English translation on the back. They don't mention that, but it's there.
    Cons:
    This doesn't seem to work on my I-phone. It works on other stuff, charges at about the rate you would expect for a solar cell ...

    Ordered three more

    posted by taylorcm76 on 10/19/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Price, price, PRICE! You can't get them where I live for anything close to this price. The cord is real 550, the whistle is loud as anything (not a jet scream but a good back-up), it's comfortable enough that I forget it's there.
    Cons:
    None. Good product, great price.

    posted by taylorcm76 on 09/30/2011 Certified Owner

    I have had this bag for a little while now and I have BEAT on it on a daily basis and it just handles it. Well built, looks good, fits my nook color perfectly without running out of room for my EDC and survival kit.
    Cons:
    None at all. Just recieved number two.

    Great Bracelet

    posted by taylorcm76 on 08/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    I have wanted to pick one of these up for a while but couldn't bring myself to buy something that I could make at home. I found this one on-line and I couldn't make it this cheap. Free shipping, low price, whistle built in (it's loud as hell), cannot beat...
    Cons:
    Shipping takes for ever. Almost a month from when I placed my order.

    great piece of equipment

    posted by taylorcm76 on 08/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Perfect fero rod. Identical to ones selling here for much more. One scrape to remove the protective covering and I was throughing sparks.
    Cons:
    None, it just plain works. This would be hard to screw up but given the price I didn't actually expect something identical to ...

    Awesome Little Gadgett

    posted by taylorcm76 on 08/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This thing fulfills multiple needs while taking up VERY little space and weighing practically nothing. Everything seems to work so far, and I don't have any complaints. I checked the compass against a GPS and it is accurate. The fire steel gives off spar...
    Cons:
    The thermo isn't great, but that is probably the least of your worries in a survival situation.
