Our 1-1/8" dia compass has a glow-in-the-dark face and a movable bezel with 5-degree increments in a 2-3/8” x 1-1/2” teardropish housing. Attached to a 1” slip ring by a black canvas strap. Get one for all the scouts, add to your EDC or attach one to your emergency go-bag.
An exhausted physicist. Also this 3-1/4" dia camping lantern. Stands 5” tall with fold-down handles, but pull up those handles and reveal the super-bright, a whopping 600 lumen COB LED light inside. Turns on when you open it, and has a small compass on top so you can see where you’re going. Measures approx 7” open and will shine for approx (6) hours with a trio of “AA” batteries, which are included. In utilitarian gray ABS plastic.
They don’t give them away in bars anymore, so you’d better buy this Matchstick Fire Starter. Has a 1-1/2" x 1-1/8" x 3/8" flint housing and a 1” striker with a small cotton wick around the end. Fill it with a little lighter fluid and you’re ready to start something. Includes a 1/2” clip to hang it on something. A must for camping.
Walking sticks have moved into the space age! This walker's/hiker's friend has futuristic features and the look of an inter-galactic weapon. The high-quality collapsible aluminum stick extends from a packable 27" to a full 43", and has a carbide tip with a rubber cover, a removable 2" dia disk to keep the stick from sinking into soft ground, and an internal shock absorber that can be turned on or off. At the top, a 5-LED flashlight with a 90° pivot is embedded in a molded-plastic cane-style handle to light your way. For mountain trekking, lengthen the stick, slip the adjustable canvas wrist strap over your hand, and clutch the stick by the padded foam section below the cane handle. Directions, diagrams, and 1100mm to 1350mm gradations are marked clearly on the 3-draw pole. We'll pick a black or anodized red, green, blue, silver or purple version for you.
Newly manufactured P-38 Can Opener from the same folks who supply them to Uncle. It folds! into 1-1/2" x 5/8" flat piece which is easily carried and lost. Reportedly works much better than the Asian knockoffs for those who really want to gain entry to the Spam!
Just like the big tactical flashlights used by SWAT teams, but in a handy 6" long x 1-1/2" dia size. In black anodized aluminum with an adjustable flood-to-spot zoom, knurled handle, 3.7V Lithium-ion rechargeable battery, plug in wall charger, an orange traffic baton attachment and a super intense high output LED bulb. Push-button switch activates high and low intensity and strobe settings. Includes a holder for (3) "AAA" batteries.
You don't have to smell like a polecat just because you're camping. Our 5-gallon PVC solar shower bag measures 23" x 16" with an in-line valve, 25" hose, 1-1/2" shower head and mounting hook. Mfr says 2 hours in the sun on a 70-degree day gets you 95-degree water.
Our each is a cute little pair of 1" dia x 1/4" thick brass-body compasses, (1) with a black face and (1) with a white face, both marked in 2° increments. They have 1/4" slip-rings on top for hanging on a lanyard or keychain, but creative people will also see the makings for extremely fashionable earrings for Camp Fire leaders, forest rangers, or two lost pirates.
