How often has patching your favorite jacket been fun? With Gear Aid’s Tenacious Tape Tattoos, you can achieve a good strong patch and bring some fun to your coat. There are two patterns to choice from: Wildlife and Happy Camper.

The Tattoos are made using Tenacious Tape, which is an ultra-strong repair tape. These fun shaped tattoos can be used to patch clothing, luggage, boots, waders, tents, or other outdoor/indoor equipment. They can patch a tear in your favorite clothes, cover up the stain that you are unsure how it got there, patch your tent, or act as an abrasion patch. They can also be used to personalize anything from your favorite coffee mug to your cell phone case. These tattoos are different from ordinary stickers; they use ultra-aggressive adhesive that won’t peel or lift. The adhesive continues to strengthen over time. The Tenacious Tape Tattoos stay in place in all-weather conditions and environments. They will adhere to almost any surface, and with their clean-adhesive technology, they can be removed when needed, without leaving behind a sticky mess. Once the tattoos are in place, they are machine washable. To prep for using the tattoos, you need to clean the area with isopropyl alcohol.

The Wildlife package includes silhouettes of: wolf, bison, fish, buck, bear, eagle, and several tracks and leaves. The Happy Camper package includes: squirrel, moon and stars, pine tree, campfire, Sasquatch, tent, cloud and rain drops,and several leaves and acorns. Between the two packages, there can be so much creativity!

I have used the Tenacious Tape Tattoos on several different applications. I adorned my grandson’s cell phone case with a wolf to add his own personalization. My granddaughter’s back pack was also personalized with a buck’s head, and I patched a slight tear in my new rain coat with a bear. I have only had the raincoat for a couple of months, so I was glad to be able to patch and personalize at the same time. I also put bear tracks on my cell phone; hopefully, now I will not mistakenly pick up another cell phone that looks like mine! I have always used McNett products to patch my waders, but this year they will be getting a fresh new look with the fun designs that are offered. I also envision my grandson’s jeans sporting several of the shapes, to cover the wear and tear on his pants. I am going to have fun converting some worn items into useful products once again!

McNett PT Pod and Ultra Compact Microfiber Towels

28 11 2014

mcnett outgo logo 2If you spend time in the woods and outdoors you will find more and more uses for the McNett Outgo microfiber towels. I used them on a recent trip, and they became my go to towels for just about everything!

The PT Pod Microfiber Towel is a compact 20” X 32”, 3.2 ounce towel that stuffs into its own 6” X 4.5” attached zippered pocket for storage. I can honestly say this is probably the only sewn in zipper pocket that I have actually been able to get the product back into and still be able to zip the pouch. Being as it is microfiber, it absorbs five times its weight in water, and dries faster than terry cloth towels.

It is also treated with an antimicrobial silver treatment to ward off odors and keep it fresh. There is a snap closure hanging loop, complete with name tag, that can be used to hang your towel for drying, or for attaching the towel to your hunting pack or even jacket. These towels come in Moss, OG Green, Khaki, Mocha and Cobalt.

Ok, so it is a towel, plus it can be used for so much more! I keep one attached to my hunting pack to be used as: a lap blanket on cool mornings, easy drying on my scope lenses and cameras in case of rain, the zipper pouch can be used to hold keys, license or other items securely, a scarf to keep your neck warm as well as being used to dry anything. The name tag makes this towel perfect for sending off to camp with kids, with good hopes of it coming back home.

The Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel comes in 2 sizes: large 30” X 50” and extra large 35” X 50”. The color selection of these towels are; Khaki, Mocha, Moss, Cobalt, OG Green and Terra Cotta. The advanced material of these towels makes it possible for them to absorb more moisture while they dry faster. These towels can absorb 5 times its weight in water and dry quickly. The antimicrobial silver treatment keeps the towels smelling fresh by warding off bacteria that cause odors. The towels come with a hanging loop, which works great for hanging out to dry or hanging in our camper. There is also a convenient zipper pouch that can be used for carrying the towel and toiletries to the shower house.

On our recent trip I packed the Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel for myself, while I took our regular terry cloth towels for my husband. During our morning walk to the shower house, everything I needed, including the towel was inside the small zippered pouch that came with the towel. My husband carried a much larger carry on type bag, to store his towels. By the end of the 3 week trip, my towels still smelled fresh, while his were getting a very distinct musty smell to them. I used one to dry my hair with, and it helped wick most of the dampness out so my hair dried quicker.

Other uses for these multipurpose towels could include; light blanket, body wrap, scarf or head wrap, padding for a seat, or even as a picnic blanket. With time and use, I am sure to find many more uses for this unique towel. If you travel and spend time in the outdoors, or are sending your child off to camp, these towels would make a great addition to you equipment. Actually any activity that you would need to shower or dry off, these towels would work wonderful for.

The MSRP of the PT Pod Microfiber Towel is $19.95 and the Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel is $24.95. Both of these products can be purchased at https://www.mcnett.com/outgo.

D2W Base Camp Holding Tank Deoderizer

28 11 2014

d2dMy husband and I recently trekked 4000 miles round trip, across the United States and Canada, to spend 3 weeks scouting and hunting for bears. We lived in our toy-hauler trailer for the duration of the trip. Since we were not staying in campgrounds along the way to utilize their dump stations, our holding tank had the potential to get very ripe, scent wise!

D2W had sent out their Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner. This treatment system treats both the black & grey water tanks. This formaldehyde free Bio-engineered Enzyme ScentPrevent technology eliminates odors, breaks down waste and is biodegradable. It comes in a convenient 16 ounce bottle which can provide up to 16 treatments of your tank. This deodorizer and cleaner is also good for portable and marine toilets. Each mL of treatment contains 67 million colony forming units.
I started the treatment process prior to our departure. It took just 4 ounces per 5 gallons at start up, and then I followed up with 2 ounces per 5 gallons for each of the next 3 weeks.

Anyone who has ever traveled in an RV or travel trailer, that did not have the holding tank treated, can attest to the fact that after a week of hot days, the smell could become unbearable. I can happily report, that never happened!
With 2 of us living in an area of just 7’ X 14’, foul odors coming from our small bathroom could have ruined the trip.

We had days where the temperatures topped out at 90+ degrees and days that the temperatures would dip down into the 30’s with snow. The D2W Guide Gear Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner worked throughout it all.

Since I was hunting and trying to stay scent free, if odors from our holding tank had invaded our trailer, the smells would have permeated my hunting gear. Trusting Dead Down Wind to keep you scent free while hunting, you can now trust them in your camper as well. Without going into graphic detail, my husband reported that everything was broke down when the tank was emptied.

The MSRP for this product is $8.99 and is proudly made In the USA. The D2W Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner is available online at http://www.deaddownwind.com/store/department/d2w-guide-gear-10009.cfm.
