Titan Paracord- Authentic Titan Military 550 Paracord Review

Paracord is one of the most useful survival items that is available and relatively easy to use.  I have worked with several brands in the past and am pleased to say that Authentic Titan Paracord Military 550 is the best. This stuff is not just for making bracelets that look pretty! Titan Paracord has a Minimum Guaranteed Tensile Strength of 550lbs, which is more than you should need in any situation.

Inside of the nylon casing, there are 21 threads that are braided into 7 individual cords. Because it is made to military specifications, one of the cords is a colored government contractor marker. Titan Paracord is 100% Bump-free, Bulge-free and Kink-free, making it very easy to work with. This is thick high quality cord.One thing you need to remember when working with paracord, is that the ends will fray unless they are burned closed.
I used the cord to make a standard cobra stitch survival bracelet. Approximately 6ft of cord is used to make a 6in bracelet. In case of emergency, you would be able to quickly take apart your bracelet and have 6 ft of paracord, or from there in the interior casing there are 7 smaller strands that you could use for all sorts of things. From working with it to make this single bracelet, I can tell that the quality is 100 times better than any paracord you can find at the craft store. Titan Paracord is currently available in 9 different colors on for purchase. So you don't have to be stuck with pink, even though it will surely make you stand out!

Titan Paracord is tough and a little more difficult to get to lay flat and into the shape you want it, but it lasts much longer and could save you in a life or death situation. I will be bringing this along on my next camping adventure. Titan Paracord offers a 100% money back guarantee, so it is definitely worth giving it a shot. I highly recommend this brand and know where I will be purchasing my paracord from in the future!

Quick Stitch- Sewing Kit Review

Everyone needs a good sewing kit, and the Quick Stitch Sewing Kit definitely fits the bill! It is small enough to take when you travel and it has everything you should need, kept firmly in its small case. It is amazing how many items they were able to fit in the small 4.5X4.5 inch case. You never know when you are going to be placed in a situation where you need to hem your shirt or sew a button back onto your jacket. The Quick Stitch sewing kit is exactly what you need during those stressful times.
The sewing kit includes:
  • Tape measure
  • Thimble
  • 12 spools of assorted thread
  • A seam ripper
  • One safety pin
  • Several straight pins
  • 3 buttons
  • 2 needle threaders
  • 24 needles
  • A pair of stainless steel scissors. 
Elastic straps hold everything in place, so their is no need to worry about loosing objects when you open the case. I was very impressed with the scissors as they worked much better than a few pairs of sewing scissors I have owned in the past. Overall, I highly recommend the Quick Stitch Sewing Kit. It would make the perfect gift for almost anyone- from a teenager going off to college to an avid seamstress. It is available for purchase on Amazon here.

Kuuk- Magnetic Shatterproof Outdoor Wine Glass Review

I love the idea behind this product, and it works perfectly!
If you love the idea of going on a nice picnic, complete with a picnic basket and a glass of your favorite wine, then Kuuk's Magnetic Shatterproof Outdoor Wine Glasses are perfect for you. You can take your wine along and drink it with class, without having to worry about breaking one of your wine glasses. It is the perfect size for traveling and even comes with a nice reusable bag to carry it in.

The magnet allows you to separate the top from the bottom and store it upside down. This make it easy to use and take on the go, while also protecting the glass from dust build up. It is easy to take apart and place in its functioning full glass mode. The stem and cup's magnetic connection is strong and allows you to drink from it without worrying that the stem will come off.

When the glass is put together it is practically flawless! You wouldn't know it was plastic unless you touched it.  I love that it is shatterproof. I can be a clutz sometimes and now I never have to worry about breaking a wine glass again! I think I need to purchase another one of these so I can have a complete set to take on the go!

More info about the Magnetic Shatterproof Wine Glass:
  • Made from shatterproof polycarbonate rather than glass, so you can drink outdoors stress-free.
  • Features quick and easy one-touch assembly. Simply hold the glass cup to the stem, and the patented magnetic mechanism does the rest.
  • The glass fits upside down neatly on the stem for efficient storage. Both parts are held in place magnetically so they remain clean and unbroken.
  • Perfect for outdoor activities and events such as camping, hiking, BBQs and music festivals.
  • BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and washes easily by hand.

DKnight- Magicbox Bluetooth Speaker Review

It is always nice when you can listen to your music without being constantly plugged in. So recently, I began searching for a great wireless Bluetooth speaker. When I received the DKnight Magicbox Ultra-Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, I was amazed by the quality of the sound that it produced. It is so much clearer than the old beat up speakers I have been using. It was also very easy to pair the device up with my iPhone. The speaker produces a nice charm sound when turned on and once again, when it is connected.

Another great feature of the Magicbox is that it is compatible with almost anything. If your device doesn't have Bluetooth, there is an option to just use an AUX cord which is included. It also has a built in Micro-SD card slot. I absolutely love this idea. I have recently upgraded to an iPhone from a non-smartphone. So I have an extra micro-sd card that fits perfectly with this speaker. Now I can listen anytime I want! When charging, there is a red LED light that stays lit. Once it is fully charged it goes out to let you know.

Speaker Specifications:
  • Features two highly powerful 40mm total 6W acoustic drivers for excellent sound.
  • Bluetooth V3.0 technology, Compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled devices (2.1 and over).
  • Built in 1000 mAh rechargeable battery lasts up to 10 hours. 
  • Small and compact. Size is 6 x 2 x 1.6 inches. Only weighted 8.3 ounces. 
  • Soft touch rubber that surrounds the speaker. No worries about slipping or scratching the wood. 
  • Can answer calls, switch songs, change the volume- all with the buttons on the speaker.
  • Available in 3 colors- Red, Blue and Black.

K2R Technology- K2R-803 Portable Power Bank with Flashlight Review

I have owned several portable power banks in the past, and I can honestly say that the K2R-803 Cell Phone Portable Charger tops them all! I love that it also doubles as a flashlight for those situations when you really are in an emergency without power. Right out of the box you get the K2R-803 Portable Charger, User Manual, K2R LED USB Micro cable (Suitable for most smartphones), and K2R LED USB Lightning cable (Suitable for iPhone 5/6). There is an easy to find power button on the side of the device, making it quick to power up and start charging!

The charging cables are awesome. They let you know whether or not your device is fully charged by the color of the LED. Red means it is still charging, while blue lets you know the charge is full. The K2R -803 power bank measures 3.4 x 3 inches, which is perfect because it is small, yet big enough to find when you are digging through your purse looking for it.

I tested this portable charger by first using my computer to completely charge it up. Then, I connected my iPhone 5 and let it get to work. My phone was at about 30% power and it seemed like it took the normal amount of time to fully charge it to 100%. It was nice because, there was still about 50% of the power left on the power bank. I like that I would have the ability to fully charge my phone more than once.

Additional Information about the K2R-803 Portable Charger:
  • Lightweight with an incredible 7,800mAh
  • Made only with top grade Lithium Ion Battery Cells
  • Multiple levels of protection built into the charger to keep your phone battery healthy
  • Free 3 Year warranty
  • Equipped with 2 USB ports- allowing you to charge 2 devices at once
  • Added Flashlight feature- Perfect for power outages, emergencies, camping and many others
  • 4 LED light indicators to show remaining charge
  • iK2R - intelligent K2R monitoring system with overcharge, over-discharge, over-current, over-voltage, short-circuit and over-load Safety protections
  • Compatible with most smartphones, tablets, and other USB-charged devices

The K2R-803 Cell Phone Portable Charger is available for purchase here on Amazon.

Supernova- Orion Ultimate Camping Survival Lantern & Power Bank Review

The Supernova Orion Ultimate Survival Rechargeable LED Lantern and Power Bank is definitely the neatest camping lantern I have ever used. It has so many functions packed into its small size, it is hard to imagine that it could be beat! It is a lantern, with 4 built in light settings: ultra bright white light, a dimmer white light, red light, and flashing red light. To turn it on, you just pull up on the top part to expose the light, pressing the button changes the light setting.

It is equipped with 2 rechargeable lithium ion batteries, that are charged via USB. You also have the option to use 3AA batteries, which are included, in case you do not have the ability to charge up the lantern. Another bonus is that this lantern doubles as a power bank. If your phone is low on power, simply connect the cord and plug it in for some extra juice. You can tell when the batteries of the lantern need recharged by the color of the button on the front. If it turns red, it is time for a charge up.

Additional Features:

  • 180 Max Lumens Lantern, perfect for camping, emergencies, hiking, and more 
  • Built in Power Bank charges phones, tablets, or any other handheld device so that you are never left without power comes with a Micro USB charging Cable
  • Easy On/Off Operation by simply opening and closing the lantern 
  • Compact and retractable design for easy storage and mobility 
  • Brushed gun metal finish makes the Orion as durable as it is beautiful 
  • The Orion Ultimate Survival LED Lantern and Power Bank by Supernova comes with a 5 Year Warranty and a No Questions Asked Return Policy

This is the perfect survival lantern, and I know I will be bringing it along the next time I go camping or hiking. It is lightweight and will not weigh down your pack. I love that it has a steady red light option, that way you do not go night-blind when using it as your main source of light. It would also be great in the event of a power outage. It would easily light up an entire room.  I recommend this to anyone who enjoys the outdoors or likes to be prepared in the event of an emergency.
