A Must-See Website for Gear Junkies

I recently discovered goinggear.com which carries a lot of unique outdoor gadgets that any die-hard gear fanatic would certainly appreciate. I just my box of stuff from them today and am like a kid on Christmas:

The assortment includes various fire steels, emergency whistles, waterproof match cases, carabiners, capsules, etc. that I can't wait to test out and review. I plan to shoot a few in-depth videos this weekend on some individual items for you, but in the meantime, check out their website. They have a lot of things I've never seen anywhere else before and you might just find that one piece of kit you've always wanted but didn't know even existed! Videos to follow...

Hey Jason,
Yeah thats a great website! I have bought a few Ferro rods from there to make my own firestarters. Take care, Mark

OMG Jason that's gear porn! Can't wait to watch your more in depth reviews/videos. Have you also looked at CountyComm.com? They have a lot of cool gadgets and tools at a very reasonable price that can be used for hiking/backpacking. I blogged about their mini pocket prybars a while ago and it's a very popular post [http://bit.ly/17ih2]. Keep up the good work!

Brian,
Wow, that is a cool site! I've added it to my links list. Thanks for lettin me know about it. Any others like this you know of?

Mark said...

Oooh, I like that site too. I especially like the pico pen and compact candle lantern. The prices are reasonable too. Cheers, Mark

Brian said...

I can see I've started something :) Other sites... well there's always the trusty CheaperThanDirt site (www.cheaperthandirt.com/). They're geared towards military surplus but have a good selection of gear that is ideal for backpacking if you already know what you are looking for - as you do! They sell Aquamira Frontier Pro filters and lots of other neat gear items very inexpensively. Hence the name :) I'll look and see what other links I've accumulated and maybe write a new post on my blog with all the links. BTW - the small foil cup cake wrappers are another good tealight alternative - much stronger/thicker than tealights and very cheap, coming in boxes of 25.

Wow... what a gear junkie I am. I clicked over and made an immediate purchase. Sheesh... I was in REI twice yesterday, that should have been enough!!

jason quick question, can you light a gas canister stove with a fire and steel

Jason Klass said...

Hi David UK-
You certainly can. Actually, many people prefer a steel over a lighter because there's less risk of burning yourself.

My order arrived yesterday with a freebie carabiner! woohooo! Everything looks great and as described. Need fuel for that groovy little lighter.

Anon-
Cool! I just put Zippo fluid in mine and played around with it. It's cool because it completely seals so the fuel doesn't evaporate.

Jason, just found your site! Good stuff...I had stopped my blogging for around a year, but am slowly getting back into it. Feel free to check it out sometime.
I bookmarked the goinggear site...I fear they will separate me from even more of my hard earned cash...
