Travel Gadget: Hoo-Ahhs Pre-Moistened Field Towels



With time things change...and Hoo-Ahhsare definitely a change.  Almost everyone is aware of Wet Ones hand wipes.  They have been around since I was a kid and were standard issue for any picnic or camping trip. 


But for me Wet Oneswere never really big enough, especially when my hands were dirty.  And when used before eating they had a strong smell that lingered during my meal.  By comparison Hoo-Ahhs are huge 7 x 10 inches, Wet Ones measure in at 5 x 7.5.  Hoo-Ahhs are also alcohol free, unscented and don't have a sticky feeling after use.

From the design of the packaging you can see that Hoo-Ahhs have a military bent.  They were developed by an ex-supply sergeant and another military buddy who noticed that many of there fellow soldiers were using baby wipes.


Recently on a trip to Italy at a sidewalk cafe, before the pizza arrived, Mrs. MurrayOnTravel compared an Hoo-Ahhs against a Wet Ones and preferred the larger size.  The guys at Hoo-Ahhs recently sent me a bunch of samples for this review, but I've been using Hoo-Ahhs for several years on the shooting range where a "manly" sized towel is great to have.

I've been using the single packs, but they also make a larger mult-pack that contains 20 7x10 inch towels in a handy resealable package.  See link below from to purchase the multi-packs.  I haven't been able to find a reasonably priced on-line outlet for the individually packaged towels. Hoo-Ahhs Website

Travel Gadget Review: Driving Gloves from Bionic Gloves

Driving Gloves from Bionic Gloves

Six months ago Bionic Gloves sent me a pair of their driving gloves to review and write about.  Bionic's parent company is famous for making the world famous Louisville Slugger baseball bat and ball gloves.  I never thought I needed driving gloves for my travels but I'm surprised how much I have used them. 

They came in really handy driving in snow and heavy fog in the mountains near Lake Arrowhead California.  During a long trip across the desert to Las Vegas Nevada.  I also used these driving gloves for several other extended drives.

I'm not sure what the effect is, but they feel really good.  Better than just wearing a pair of standard gloves.  As you can see in the photo the palm and fingers are not just flat pieces of leather.  Bionic Gloves calls these "anatomical relief pads" that help reduce hand fatigue and improve comfort.  And I agree that they do help a lot.  These gloves also protect your hands from sun exposure and provide an increased grip on the wheel.

You can find more information on the Bionic Gloves website .  A good video on the site describes the technology behind these gloves.  They are also known for their golf gloves.
