Ultralight Sports Toothbrush Review

Here's a stocking stuffer I got for Christmas: an extreme ultralight toothbrush you stick on your finger. I've always wanted to try one of these so I was really excited to test it out.Sure, it's miniscule (taking up almost no space in the pack) and is nearly weightless at only 0.04 oz. but will it hold up to the ultimate bathroom test? Let's find out...

I've always thought these were a bit of a waste of time as the weight saving is marginal. Like you, I'm not keen on sticking my dirty fingers in my mouth.

There look very similar to the dog toothbrushes you can buy.

Also any person not keen on putting dirty fingers in my mouth.

They give you these in jails since you can not fashion them into a shank.

As for hiking I don't think I would want my dirty hands in my mouth if I can help it... I would rather take the extra weight of a short toothbrush handle.

Well, it depends on the situation:

Solo 3 season: tealight stove and Backpacking Light Firelite 550 titanium.

With my wife 3 season: MSR Titan Kettle and Minibulldesign Elite or other alcohol stove like the Supercat.

Winter: MSR XGK White Gas stove and Antigravity Gear 2 Quart Pot.

Dude, I so look forward to the day I can leave my massive dental kit at home :-P That thing would be hanging off my braces on the second swipe.

Lol!New teeth jewelery? Sweet!

Funny video, but I would sacrifice carrying the extra weight to carry a full toothbrush.

Funny review. They look a lot like the first tooth/gum brush we had for our baby. Luckily, he's moved on to a miniature version of the real thing.

if you don't want dirty fingers in your mouth.. a single finger condom.
