  • Weatherman Surge Multi-tool

The Leatherman Surge

By |June 12th, 2015|Friday Survival Gear Reports|0 Comments

The Leatherman Surge is the latest offering from Leatherman. Think of it as the higher functioning younge brother to the famous Leatherman New Wave (80s sold separately).

Important tool additions the Surge enjoys the New Wave lacked:

A saw
Improved shears
Electrical Crimper
Stranded-wire Cutter
A blade exchanger

The big advantage of the Surge is the blade changer. This frees you up […]

Explosive Arrowheads

By |December 20th, 2013|Friday Survival Gear Reports|5 Comments

Silent(ish), but deadly. Meet the Bow Mag: Bullet enhanced arrow head.

Recently, Jonathan sent me an email that simply contained a link and said, “I’m not even sure why, but I really want this.” I watched the product demo video scratching my head. Yet, I was also left wanting to buy a pack of Bow Mags. […]

Carbon Fiber Kydex Holster

By |December 13th, 2013|Friday Survival Gear Reports|4 Comments

Recently I made a big change: I moved away from leather holsters in favor of Kydex. (It felt a little dirty at first, admittedly.)

For years I stuck almost religiously to all metal guns and traditional leather holsters. But as time went on the discomfort of wagging around a boat anchor on my belt became a […]

Prepper Handgun Case

By |December 6th, 2013|Friday Survival Gear Reports|2 Comments

Recently, I had to fly to Phoenix with my handgun. And this sparked a search for a new gun hard case.

Admittedly, I already had a perfectly good Pelican case. But I’m always up for looking at new toys. And that’s when I ran across the Prepper Handgun Case. (The name caught my eye–I’m simple.)

This […]

Tactical Poncho

By |November 29th, 2013|Featured, Friday Survival Gear Reports|2 Comments

Think Ponchos aren’t exciting? Maybe you’ve never seen the Hazard4 Poncho Villa┬áTechnical Soft Shell Poncho. (Not to be confused with┬áPancho Villa–the Mexican Revolutionary General.)

I’ve always carried a Poncho in my BOB and car bag. I like them because they’re more versatile than a rain coat and fit over gear–not just your body. But, admittedly, most […]

Gerber Downrange Tomahawk

By |November 8th, 2013|Friday Survival Gear Reports|5 Comments

There’s something decidedly awesome about Tomahawks. Maybe it’s the little boy in me that wishes he was still out climbing trees, building potato cannons, riding BMX, or playing Cowboys and Indians well past an appropriate age…

Maybe it’s because they are actually a useful tool. (Maybe both. And that’s ok too.)

Recently, Gerber released the Downrange Tomahawk. […]

Streamlight TLR-1

By |November 1st, 2013|Friday Survival Gear Reports|0 Comments

Shine a light on what your gun is pointing at with the Steamlight TLR-1 Rail Mounted Weapon Flashlight.

Why would you want a weapon mounted light?

Glad you asked, because it is very important. Here’s why: If you can’t see what you’re point a gun at, you can’t in good faith pull the trigger–or at least really […]

Who’s Phoz?

He’s a long time ITRH Forum member. And recently he did a review of the Deep Concealment Harness. When he shared it with the forum I asked if we could […]
