One of the most popular aspects of the BCHuntingBlog (according to our visitor statistics) are the detailed gear reviews. Over the years I have carefully selected the items that come out in the field with me and I am constantly on the lookout for the latest and greatest gear. I would consider myself a hard-core abuser of my outdoor equipment and if a piece of outdoor gear is worth recommending it will be posted here.
There is no rhyme nor reason to the order of this list, these are just a collection of the gear reviews I have published. Hopefully they help make your purchasing decisions a little easier!

Havalon Piranta Skinning Knives – I love these little knives! They work awesome and can break down a whole Moose!
Sitka Timberline Open Country Pants Review – These pants are awesome and have been through 4 years of abuse!
Hilleberg Allak Backpacking Tent Review – The Hilleberg Allak has been my go-to tent now for a few years.
Valandre Bloody Mary Sleeping Bag Review – The Bloody Mary came with me on my recent sheep hunt, and it’s a formidable piece of lightweight gear.
Exped Downmat 7 Down Sleeping Mat Review – The Exped Downmat 7 was also a guest on my recent sheep hunt that will be returning again and again, very happy with the purchase.
Integral Designs eVent Rain Gear Review – eVent is an impressive lightweight, waterproof breathable membrane and Integral Designs stitches it up into some pretty sweet rain gear.
Mystery Ranch NICE 6500 Pack Review – I purchased the MR NICE 6500 from Mystery Ranch a few months before my hunt last year and share my thoughts on the pack, it’s functionality and features.
Integral Designs MK III Tent Review – My tent was purchased from C&C outdoors nearly 5 years ago. Since then it’s been on numerous mountain hunts and has performed flawlessly. Money well spent.
Integral Designs Sil-Tarp II Review – An essential piece of gear for every sheep hunter or mountain hunters pack. These are incredibly light weight tarps that are useful in a variety of ways.
SPOT Satellite Messenger Review – If you or one of your loved ones likes to head out into the remote back country then make sure they have one of these units. They are incredibly affordable and have already saved lives.
Hanwag Trapper Tops Boot Review – In 2007 I purchased a set of Hanwag trapper tops from Lathrop & Sons. These boots have been up and down many miles of mountains and still have a few left in them.
Katadyn Vario Water Filter Review – This afforsable little backpack water filter impressed me. For the price vs performance this unit from Katadyn takes the cake. We had no problem supplying over 8liters per day for a group of 3, filtering nothing more than melted snow.
Jetboil Backpacking Stove Review – My original Jetboil stove has performed flawlessly for the last 5 years and has boiled hundreds of litres of water for our meals and drinks while in the mountains. A very well thought out product and highly recommended.
