A industry friend of mine fired me a package of goodies several months back. In it was the Echo Niner Patch Pouch that has been used in various roles since then. The patch pouch is a male Velcro backed patch with female Velcro on the outside. A flap opens in the back allowing items to be stored on the inside.
Fire is one of the most important tools in a survival situation or even just camping. From fire you keep warm, melt snow and boil water, cook, sterilize, make signals, and much more. Unfortunately starting a fire is not always easy, so why not have some tools that can make it easy. Ultimate Survival Technologies has a large selection of just those tools, along with many other great products.
Every now and then I am going to be doing mini reviews on gear that I like or use that might not warrant me prattling on for a few thousand words about. In this case I will be writing about my four different Nuko Tools. I met Norman around three years ago and he is the mad scientist behind Nuko Tools. We were at a Usual Suspect Network get together and he hooked me up with a G10 Punchring and a titanium Nukohead (at the time I think it was called GBI which was short for Grin and Beat It). Norman remarked that I had massive fingers and that the titanium Nukohead would fit me better than his current G10 versions. Over the next few years Norman and I have had lots of dealings together and I am happy to call him a friend. He makes some great discreet pocket impact tools and enjoys what he does. As with any sort of impact weapon please check your local laws to determine their legality.
I recently wrote a guest article for The Firearm Blog on the INFORCE WMLx. I think I have had a WML of some form or other since they were released. INFORCE knows what they are doing and make an affordable, ergonomic and well designed light. If your interested in learning more click the picture below to be taken to the article.
Continuing my spotlight on products made by smaller manufacturers in North America, I will be showing you guys a couple of the cool things I have received from the good folks over at Perroz Designs. They are a small outfit in Toronto that are pumping out some seriously interesting items. All of the stitching is top notch and they have been making some laser cut patches for some pretty big names too.
