Review: Titanium Emberlit Stove

Back in September we introduced the Emberlit Stove. Since then I have been playing with it, testing it, and even carrying it around in my EDC. The conclusion, simply put, this is a great little stove. As you may remember, there is a great story attached to this product. It's a story of ingenuity and [...]

Maxpedition Vulture-II Review

By |September 21st, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|3 Comments

Like so many others, putting together my first BOB became an obsession. I chewed through forum threads, books and articles, consuming people's load-out lists. What I found was that they range from down and dirty to Armageddon ready. One of the items I ended up focusing on the most was the bag itself. I agonized [...]

PocketToolX Brewzer Review

By |August 17th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|0 Comments

PocketToolX's Brewzer may not look like much, but it does a few jobs very well. The Brewzer is unique in that it does not try to do everything - unlike so many gadgets these days. It offers to assist in accomplishing a short list of tasks that tend to be daily tasks: open bottles, open [...]

ESEE Izula Review

By |August 10th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|3 Comments

ESEE Knives (formerly RAT Cutlery) offer some of the finest fixed blade survival knives in the $70 - $200 range. They are designed to be simple and a balance of quality and price.

Black Diamond Storm Headlamp Review

By |August 3rd, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|1 Comment

There are three significant advantages headlamps have over handheld flashlights. First, wherever you look the light shines. Second, your hands are free for tasks. Third, if you [...]

By |July 27th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|0 Comments

Friday Gear Report: 6/24/11 brought you the Nokero N200; the second in a line of solar light bulb products from Nokero. Where the original Nokero N100 left me underwhelmed, the N200 picked up the slack. The Nokero N200 features a three-position switch allowing the user to choose from: off, low output, and high output. On its [...]

Steamlight Nano Review

By |July 20th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|5 Comments

$100 and up tactical flashlights are cool, but carrying them around in a pocket can be a hassle. Not to mention they are a tad unnecessary for most people's EDC needs. Six months ago I added a $6.45 Steamlight Nano to my keychain and have not been disappointed once since. Measuring just 1.47 inches in length [...]

Benchmade Triage 915 Review

By |July 13th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|6 Comments

The Benchmade Triage 915 is a well designed knife for emergency responders and people looking for a good EDC Knife that is not Tacticool. However, it has its imperfections. Tactical pocket folding knives are great for, well tactical applications. But, for the 99% of us who are probably never going to be in a force-on-force [...]
