A handy, reliable compass is a necessity for every camper, backpacker, and survivalist, and compasses by Silva are some of the best models on the market. Recently, I've had the opportunity to try out the CL Hi-Vis model, and it essentially saved by butt this past weekend.
Staying home for Christmas can be a blessing and a beautiful experience, however it can also be quite the headache, especially if you tend to have quarrels with the in-laws. You either travel somewhere or you stay home, and if you stay put, you either have to travel or play host, which can be trying at times. But why not give a Christmas vacation a try? To tell you the truth, I used to stay home every year, where one family group hosted the rest of us, followed by loads of food, white elephant game, and a long nap, typically with some football on the television screen.
The Cobra CPP 300 SP is a small solar-powered battery charger, equipped with USB ports. This device can charge three mobile devices at one-time, and it has high efficiency dual solar panels for quick charging in the sun. The battery is sizable at 6,000mAh, and will power most iPhones two-to-four times before needing recharged, so that's pretty awesome... Especially for me, as when I travel abroad (especially when I am wilderness camping), I almost always simplify my gadgets to solely my iPhone – unless my laptop or camera decides to join me along my trip!
