Maxpedition Vulture-II Review

By |2016-10-15T00:14:57-05:00September 21st, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|4 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 [...]

ESEE Izula Review

By |2017-03-21T11:29:02-05:00August 10th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|3 Comments

ESEE Knives (formerly RAT Cutlery) offer some of the most popular fixed blade survival knives in the $70 - $200 range. They are designed to be simple and a balance of quality and price. What I have always found most impressive is their "NO Questions Asked Guarantee". It says a lot about a company's belief [...]

Headlamps are the most under appreciated of the flashlight world. People often think of them as "looking dorky". However, try one once and you will be hooked forever. 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 [...]

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.

Steamlight Nano Review

By |2016-10-15T00:15:27-05:00July 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 |2016-10-15T00:15:27-05:00July 13th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|7 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 [...]
