It’s also entertaining with all the photos supporting the texts.
I like that it’s easy to understand and a quick but extremely informative read.
SOL Magnesium Striker ($11.99) This magnesium striker is a special outdoor tool that makes it easy to create fire for your outdoor cooking needs. The rod flint promises to create enough sparks to start over 100 fires!
This all-in-one fire starter includes a steel striker, a flint rod, and magnesium plus a bottle opener on the steel striker which is very useful for any outdoor trip, especially on a hike.
The carton packaging has the usage instructions on the side. It says that this can easily ignite any tinder for your fire with magnesium flakes.
The striker is handy and easy-to-carry. It’s 5.375″ long and weighs 2.9 oz.
The curved edge on the steel scraper is engineered to make scraping a pile of magnesium easier. It also features a bottle opener on the steel striker.
The flint and magnesium rods are securely embedded into the robust handle.
Gear Aid Camp Carabiner ($10.95) Here’s another outdoor survival tool, a carabiner that features a signature twist-and-clip design to make suspending gear on a line easy to accomplish.
The carton packaging has different photos that show how to use the carabiner!
They also listed step-by-step instructions inside the box.
The carabiner features a 1/4-20 attachment point for compatible lighting and electronic devices. It’s strong enough to hold up to 25 lbs. with the stainless-steel bail clip closed. This is the ideal lightweight and adaptable tool for any hiking, camping, or hunting trips.
What’s nice is that it swivels 360° for all-around easy access to gear on a line and offers more adjustment options for attached lights and speakers.
It’s the ultimate knot-free solution to hanging gear on a line!

This mood lighting is waterproof and lightweight, making it really ideal for bringing outdoors.

It’s very easy to use! Just plug into any USB outlet or power bank and experience the long, bright, energy-efficient mood lighting that it creates for any dark ambiance.
It features 350 lumens of adjustable light with 8 brightness settings allowing energy conservation and versatility. Then, there are 6 different modes, including solid light, fade in/out, strobe, flash and a fire-crackle setting.
The string lights have so many fun uses. It can be used indoors, but the best way to use it is to take it during a camping trip and put it around the tent for a fun ambiance! It’s a must-have for so many reasons!
