The Reflect Clothesline is a stretchable cord in a material that can reflect light, so you can trace its whereabouts at night with a light. The clothesline works well, stretching up to nine feet, and includes eight clips for hanging drying clothes. If you plan to spend some serious time in Nature, where you will either need to do laundry or fear being caught in a downpour, it might be an important inclusion in your camp setup.
The No-See-Um Head Net is an effective insect protector without the use of harmful chemicals. It has a tapered neck with elastic bottom to ensure a secure fit that can stretch to fit over a variety of hats. Some places in the world can be beautiful, but also downright awful to experience if you visit unprepared during the wrong season. I’ve visited great natural areas at the wrong time and was nearly run out by the mosquitos and midges, and now I can only wish I had one of these head nets – if only to maintain my sanity.
The Packable Cup is a a small metal keychain, less than two inches in diameter, that extends and opens into a cup ideal for ht and cole beverages. The durable stainless steal construction can hold two ounces of fluid when expanded and easily clips to a backpack, belt or carabiner. When you’re trekking in the wilderness, as far away from civilization as you can, a cup can become a much-needed luxury item when it comes down to survival.
The Tick Wrangler is as the name suggests. Back home in Ohio, the ticks in wooded areas can be a downright nuisance. I often travel with my dog and she has it worst of all. And while I’ve become accustomed to pulling ticks from her, the tick wrangler is a great little invention that saves me time, lessens the grossness factor, as well as ensures that I do it right the first time.
