While I wait on more review products to arrive, I wanted to write a review on a product that I used a lot at the National Scout Jamboree! That would be PELICAN MICRO CASES!! These things ROCK, are very cheap on Amazon (Don’t buy anywhere else, they cost a lot more), and are available in 7 or so sizes!!
I own over 10 of these cases.. price can’t be beat! Much less expensive than the new OtterBox versions! American made, and I have never had one fail! They have been underwater, in water, in rain, dropped from 15 feet or higher and have always protected my expensive electronics, and other items that need to stay dry! They make a size that fits anything!
1.) Keep the gaskets clean – Dust, sand, and other fine particles can cause these to leak, just like any waterproof case
2.) When sizing, make sure you read interior demensions! Your device or other items fit on the inside so those are the important measurements!
3.) Amazon’s price beats anyone on these!
I highly recommend these cases! Pelican has been around much longer than all the new companies making waterproof cases.. they know how to do it correctly
For one of my first reviews back, I will start with a simple but VERY NICE ITEM from a BRAND I LOVE! One that I wish I had with me at Scout Jamboree! (They were delivered while I was away so I didn’t have them at Jamboree)
Badass tent stakes! Strong, lightweight, and work well for tarps, tents, blankets, and more! Grat addition to the chill gorilla line and great for use with other brand products as well! I highly recommend these
Short Review (Summary): This isn’t a “Weekend” tent, this is a vacation tent or week+ Lodge! While the tent does take about an hour to setup, it’s very easy.. I love the pole design compared to the extra large frames made for tents from brands like diamond brand. If setup correctly, the tent will not leak a drop! If setup correctly, the tent will not let bugs in (like another review says). The tent is designed to open up sides and let breeze through if need be but is also designed to be 100% waterproof! The floor is very durable and amazing! Tent is tall enough for bunk beds and with bunk beds can easily sleep 6 people! Maybe more while still having room for gear!
1.) Easy Setup – Takes about an hour but is easy!
2.) Easy Storage – I know the pole design consist of a lot of parts BUT owning tents from brands like Diamond Brand, their frames and poles are huge and hard to store.. Barebones has fixed this with their unique design.. I feel it’s a fair trade off!
3.) Magnetic Doors are Amazing
4.) Very Waterproof – I used this tent for two weeks straight and it made it through 4 down poors and didn’t leak a drop.. one of the storms had a lot of wind and the tent stood strong! Again, I had it setup correctly, had it velcroed where needed and I had no issues!
5.) I love the Window Design!
6.) Knowing this is from the founder of Goal Zero, I know when and if I ever need customer service, it will be top notch!
7.) Plenty of vents and ventilation!
8.) Tons of accessories made for this
9.) The top of the tent holds my Goal Zero Nomad 100 great and my Yeti 400 Lithium provides power inside the tent easily! The Barebones fan works great with the Yeti and keeps the tent cool!
10.) Price is fine.. compare with Diamond Brands and you will spend $2000+ by the time you buy your frame!
1.) This is not a weekend tent! This is a vacation tent to take to the beach for a week.. to take hunting.. to use for weeks at a time
2.) Barebones offers bunk beds that work great with these tents
3.) Power your tent with the Goal Zero line.. Nomad 100 and Yeti 400 Lithium work great
4.) Setup at home to test and practice before you use
5.) If you camp for your beach trip and other vacations, this pays for itself in about 2 vacations!
Overall: Wonderful tent! Price is fine for a good tent and frame. Easy set-up and wonderful for vacations!
Short Review: I purchased these to take with me on a trip in two weeks and I wanted to try them out before I went! I knew that the bag had 48 wipes in it which means they weren’t very large… I was however still impressed with the size!! The scent smells strong at first but when you use the wipes, you quickly learn that the scent isn’t very bad nor strong on the body! Tonight I used these on my feet which start stinking after about mid day but I don’t have time to wash or shower after work before I go out and do things! Plus I like wearing sandals, flip flops, chacos and other open shoes so I can’t have my feet stinking after work!! You can also use these wipes pretty much anywhere! JUST REMEMBER, they don’t flush and aren’t flushable!
1.) Decent Size – They cover your entire hand plus some which makes it great for people that have phobias of parts of their body such as feet and whatnot.. You don’t have to touch those parts.. Although I don’t have phobias like that, I know some folks do
2.) Good scent – They smell great! Not to strong and its a nice manly scent!
3.) Awesome Price – The price of these is great!
4.) Multiple uses – Toss these in a day bag, gym bag, use at the gym, use after work, use at work to freshen up, and more! These have multiple uses and great uses..
1.) Not flushable
2.) I wish they also made a body size like DUDE and other brands do.. Maybe an 8 X 8 size or 9 X 9? One can wish
Overall: I am very impressed with these! I highly recommend them
