Helinox Chair One Camp Chair

Helinox Chair One Camp Chair review

Are you looking for a kick-ass light weight camping chair? Your search is over. The Helinox Chair One Camp Chair is an amazing, comfortable light weight chair. I use mine on every camping trip I go on. It is great to sit in after a long day of paddling in the BWCA (boundary waters in northern MN). I’m 6’4″ 200lbs. and it fits me great. I use it in the BWCA, tailgating and even as an extra chair if I have a lot of people over at my house. Assembling the chair is simple. It kind of just falls into...

Takes her around 5 minutes to eat her food using the Slo Bowl

Kyjen Slo Bowl dog bowl review

Does your dog eat it’s food like they are never gonna eat again? I have found a solution to your problem. It is the Slo Bowl by Kyjen. Your dog has to work for their food which stops them from inhaling their food as fast as possible and also prevents bloating. These come in a bunch of different designs and sizes but they all do the same thing. I have the Caribbean Blue model in size large. My Stella is a 60lb. lab mix and she is a feeder. She used to inhale her food from her old bowl. By using...

Roomba Irobot 620

Roomba Irobot 620 vacuum review

The Roomba Irobot 620 is a pretty decent robotic vacuum. It is very easy to use. Open the box, plug in the charging station, hit the clean button, and you are Roombaing.  As with other Roomba vacuums, the 620 cleans a room by going in a random pattern. My main purpose for using the 620 was to see how much of my dog Stella’s hair it would pick up. It passed the test. I found in my tests is does a very adequate of picking up loose pet hair and dirt. The 620 runs for around an hour and then...

many spots to attach gear to the pack

Granite Gear Traditional #4 Portage Pack review

The Granite Gear Traditional #4 Portage Pack is a great option for those of you looking for a light-weight option for a portage pack. I use mine a couple of times a year in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) in northern MN where you have to do a lot of portaging.  It holds a shit-ton of gear, but all of your gear is only accessible via one large opening at the top of the pack. I keep my rain gear on top in case I need to access it quickly. By using a plastic 3mm bag as a liner, it...

LB HBS700 Tone vs. HBS730 Tone+ Bluetooth headset review

If you are reading this, you are probably trying to decide between the LG HBS 700 Tone or the HBS730 Tone+ Bluetooth headsets.  The 730s have some upgrades over the original 700s. Both headsets are a great choice. They are both are around $50 at Amazon and have good sound quality with the added convenience of not having a cord getting in your way.  This is the main benefit of these headsets. Previously, I reviewed the original HBS700s and you can read that review here. Both allow you to adjust volume, play, pause, skip tracks, fast forward through songs and...

The BBQ Hooker Four-in-One Grilling tool is the only tool you will need for grilling this summer.  It has a metal spatula, serrated knife edge, meat hook and bottle opener all built into this little 22 inch tool which is also dishwasher safe.

With this you can easily...

The BEST Headlamp you will ever own for under $10 – The 160 Lumen Cree Led Headlamp review

Simply put the 160 Lumen Cree Led Headlamp is the best headlamp that you can buy for under $10. The brightness of this little bad boy will amaze you. My friend and I all call it Super Headlamp due to how bright this headlamp is. It is very light and uses 3 aaa batteries that are not included when you purchase the headlamp. It is very easy to use. There is a small silver button on top of the light that turns the light on. Hit the button again and you get a dimmer light followed by a strobe light...
