GP4L Shortwave Radio

June 13, 2009

We test the GP-4L small handheld Shortwave Radio
We were on a mountain at about 4000 feet at about 2 am
The radio did pick up stations, but it would have been dificult to tune most of them in

The LED and standard FM radio both have worked well no mater where we test this radio, however we are still finding little success finding shortwave broadcasts durring our testing

Adventure Medical Hand Sanitizer

May 27, 2009

We have been carying this Adventure Medical Hand Sanitizer for well over a year in a daily carry bag as part of the medical equipment. In that time it has not been needed. It still has its safety tab in place which prevents the gel from being pumped out. It has lasted well during this time and is still in usable condition. This is a worthwhile product and an excelent choice for a first aid kit or survival kit.

Two 550 Cord Slings

May 23, 2009

We made two slings (for throwing rocks) out of 550 cord. We found the idea and instructions on the EDC Forum. Both of these were easy to assemble. The tan version uses two cords, the black one was made from just one length of 550 cord. The tan two cord version is larger and longer, but either can be made larger or smaller.

Tops Knives Survival Saw

March 17, 2009

We plan to do a long term review of the Top Knives Survival Saw, here are the initial photos as we received it from EDC Depot.com The Survival Saw has an overall length of 7 inches. The survival saw has a 4 inch Powder Coated Red Blade. The handle material is Kydex. These Tops Knives survival saws have a Hardened Steel Reciprocating Saw Blade that can cut: Bone, Frozen Meat, Wood, PVC, Copper, Aluminum and Hard Rubber

While the Top Knives Survival Saw is no match for this Swiss Army Knife on wood, it would cut metal better. The Survival Saw is also lighter than a full knife.

GPS, Radio, Altimeters, Compasses, Thermometers

February 17, 2009

We took a few of the electronic outdoor equipment out to compare how they work. We compare features of the Garmin Legend GPS, the Garmin Rino 120 GPS and a Motorola Talkabout T6320 Radio. These are some of the most feature rich units we have found over the years at prices we could afford. These units give us a lot of information and abilities when camping, hiking, hunting, fishing and geocaching. Usually we pass the units around or if everyone has their own radio / GPS then the Rino is carried and the other two units are carried in the pack as backups. Together these three units offer; two GPS Units, two Two Way Radios, two Compasses, three Altimeters, a radio scanner, national weather radio, barometer, sun and moon charts and a lot more.
