If you have lived your life in the constant glow of the city lights, the immensity of the night out in the country can overwhelm you. Nights where there is no light from the moon can seem impossibly dark and navigation can be difficult if not dangerous. While some may call this look “dorky”, having a bright light conveniently located on your brow will keep your surroundings illuminated and your hands free. Just be sure to keep the rechargeable battery fully loaded or you could find yourself in darkness when the battery dies.
If you will be travelling through especially windy territory, a windproof lighter is just the thing you need. If this lighter can reach temperatures exceeding 2300°F , you can melt your way through an avalanche, solder metal and of course light campfires all the way. This is exactly what you will find in the handy Soto Pocket Torch that won’t let you down even if the elements are against you. It alongside these is an essential piece of hunting gear.

This ultra-portable self-contained fire starter is guaranteed for a 3,000 fire strikes per unit. Created here in the USA, the 6061 aluminum product contains a replaceable 1/4″ Ferrocerium bit that can still strike a flame if slightly wet — a true backwoods-person’s friend.

Furthermore, this model can convert some of this heat in power to charge up any portable units you may need.
