GRÄNSFORS BRUKS HATCHET $111 and up, GRANDFOREST.US Made old-school style by a blacksmith in Sweden, a classic camping hatchet from Gränsfors Bruks has the potential to be passed down to the next generation. They come in many styles—here, the Wildlife Hatchet is shown—but all axes and hatchets from the company have hand-pounded steel heads and hickory handles. Each one comes with a leather sheath and the initials of the Gränsfors Bruks blacksmith who made it stamped on the hatchet’s head.


SPOT CONNECT $170 plus required annual $100 service fee, FINDMESPOT.COM Pair this small black box with your iPhone or Android device, and you’ll have a system to stay in touch almost anywhere on the planet. Your phone and the SPOT Connect, a one-way GPS communication device, can “talk” to each other via wireless Bluetooth signals. Type a message on your phone, and the SPOT links to a network of roving satellites to send the note, letting you do things like update your Facebook followers from Timbuktu (literally). Bonus: There’s also a built-in SOS function to alert the authorities in case of an outdoor emergency.


RELEASEN RUN DOG


COLLAR $33 and up, MYRADDOG.COM A unique gift for dog-owning Scouts and Scouters, this collar has a short, retractable leash hidden inside. Made for the “mostly off-leash dog,” Rad Dog LLC’s hide-a-leash collar suits people who frequent wilderness areas where dogs don’t need to be attached. A 4-foot-long cord made of Spectra, a strong polyethylene-based fiber, serves as the leash. It retracts automatically back into a tiny compartment on the collar when you let go, a “snap” signaling to Fido that he is unleashed and can now run free.

FENIX TK35 FLASHLIGHT $135, FENIXLIGHTING.COM Cut a bright, white beam for hundreds of feet through the night air—that’s the promise of this new super-torch from Fenix. Made of metal, the 6.5-inch-long flashlight is waterproof and built rugged to take bumps. The secret sauce is in its LED, a high-power light cannon that (with the aid of four CR123A batteries) can blast out an 820-lumen beam that will turn nighttime at your campsite into virtual day.
