The single best piece of gear in my camp pack is the Coleman Lantern Hanger. It’s nothing more than a length of chain you wrap around a tree and a clever, stable hook from which you hang your lantern. It ain’t high-tech, but at eight bucks it provides unbelievable utility. Getting your light source up off the ground not only provides better light at your campsite, it’s also safer.
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
