Use : I’ve begun testing this hat out already and I’m impressed just as I was with the Seal Skinz Socks that we showed off previously. After four night hikes, roughly 45 miles worth of trail time in all sorts of rainy conditions, I can tell you that this hat is waterproof. I’ve used this in dense fog with light mist, light rain to heavy down pours and stayed 100% dry.
Most of the nights the temps were in the 50’s and it was perfectly comfortable. When the temps got to the mid 60’s I did notice that my noggin was getting a little hot and that’s because this hat does had a thermal rating of 3. In other words, it’s meant for that range in between the hottest of days and the coldest and that does seem to be accurate. In other words it wouldn’t be breathable for the sunniest of days or warm enough for the coldest ones either.
When it comes to noggin protection, I am not a big fan of hoods, I like hats especially if i am with some friends and there is talking involved.
The definitive technical bush or trail hat is soft enough to fold with an adjustable brim also provides excellent sun protection.

Over the years I have used all sorts of town, microfiber, sham, towels, and so on
Normally one expects a really great towel to be thick and absorbent. This Ultra-Light towel wicks moisture from the skin and dries 4x faster than other towels. It does not “absorb” water like a conventional towel. Instead, it pulls moisture around the fibers, distributing it across the surface of the fabric where it quickly evaporates.
The Towel only weighs 2.8oz and its ultra light-ness makes it perfect for those who are conscious of their gear’s weight. The fabric actually contains Silver (silver chloride)
Silver Chloride is very common in bandages and wound healing products and is even used as an antidote for mercury poisoning. Interesting little fact there. Essentially silver chloride keeps the towel from becoming nays over time. It prevents bacteria and fungi from growing on it so that you can continue to use it over a long period of time without having to wash it. Ultimately this boils down to a perfect product for distance backpackers.
Silver discourages bacterial growth so the fabric doesn’t get the moldy or musty smell one associates with damp towels.
Polygiene Recycled Silver Salt, which is Eco-Friendly and safe. This is not a surface treatment, it is permanently bonded to the fibers and it does not contain any chemicals. It is pure silver that has been micro-encapsulated in the yarns. It lasts for years, and is safe and natural - this means the towels stay fresher between washings.
These Ultra-Light Towels are made in North America by Discovery Trekking Outfitters Ltd.
Blocks up to 93% of UV rays
Wicks moisture 3 to 4 times faster than regular towels
Recycled silver in towel fibers prevents bacterial-growth
Made in Canada and the USA
The fabric is 100% polyester. It’s the design (knit) of the fabric that gives it such effective moisture-wicking. Rather than sucking the water into the fibers (such as you would experience with natural fibers), the moisture is pulled “around” the polyester fibers and spread across the surface of the towel, which is why it can dry out so fast.
Used by outdoors fanatics as well as the military.

Note: the 2013 model has 90 Lumens, the 2014 model offers 130 Lumens and about the same battery life.
Both are great choices, although for the extra few bucks go ahead and get the 130-Lumen model. When you comparison shop, be sure which Lumen rating you're buying).
If you are interested in this head lamp, please know that there are two version of this on the market at this time. There is a 90 lumen version which I have here and there is an updated 2014 version. The difference between the 2013 and the 2014 versions is the lumens (90 v. 130) and the advertised distance of the light (70m v. 75m).
Based on what I have seen in reviews, the 90 lumen model may be the better choice when it comes to performance and ease of use. We will review the new model in the future.
Price : On Amazon the price varies on the color but you're looking to pay around $35 dollars.

Thrunite has updated their original compact, high-output 1x18650/2xCR123A light -- the TN12, first released in 2011 - with a new model for 2014.
I spoke with Thrunite about the 2014 update and their main focus was quality, performance and a great price. The new TN12 for 2014 builds on the previous 2011 model, and introduces new features consistent with other lights in this 1x18650, 2xCR123A/RCR class -- like the dual-switch interface. It is also one of the best deals in this class (by MSRP), for the feature set.
Similar flashlights would be the Fenix PD35 and the Nitecore P12.
