Maxpedition Vulture-II Review

September 21, 2011

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.

PocketToolX Brewzer Review

August 17, 2011

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 […]

$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 […]

Thumbnail image for Benchmade Triage 915 Review

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.
