    Promising review: "My friend has these and after watching him use them over the past 5+ years I bought a set. They're a solidly constructed set, very light weight and with the d-ring clip they are stored easily in camp or on the go. The only drawback I experienced was sometimes getting them on and off the D-ring as they catch on the notch and when all three are on the d-ring getting them to easily lay flat would take a little extra effort. The three utensils themselves work fabulously though!" —CanoeItAll

    Price: $22.99

    4. A hammock seat cover because your dog needs a safe space to ride along with you. It has the added benefit of keeping your seats clean from any mess your pet might be dragging in.

    Shovel with saw

    Promising review: "For the price, this shovel can't be beat. It's mainly a camping/garden shovel that can be used as a pick also. I would not use it for digging through hard clay or a heavily rocky ground. The saw is no flimsier than most of its size and should only be used for small branches. The shovel head has two strong locking positions. The handle slides into itself and has a shaft compression nut to extend and tighten the handle. The shovel is compact and fits my backpack nicely." —WmCarroll
