CORE Survival HEL-STAR 6

By Lights/Lighting Implements, Strobes

I have been on the lookout for a new strobe setup for awhile and when I saw the HEL-Star 6 I knew it would be what I was looking for. It combined two things I had on my helmet, an IR strobe and a visible light v-lite, in one simple setup and the ability to switch between overt and covert modes with tactile switches was a huge plus over buttons.

Strider SMF

By Knives

To say I am a pretty big fan of Strider knives would be a bit of an understatement. However, I don’t just fanatically follow them, there are several reasons I buy them including the warranty Strider puts on their blades and the amount of abuse their knives are capable of absorbing.

I detailed my own experiences with my Strider SMF in a previous issue of Tactical News Magazine, the entirety of which can be read by clicking the image below.

LiteFighter Systems FIDO-1

By Tents/Shelter

A good tent that doesn’t weigh a ton and is roomy enough to not feel claustrophobic can be a hard thing to find, especially if you want something designed for military members, by military members. The FIDO-1 fits that bill however, it’s a single person tent that can also be strapped to a cot and is one piece of kit with a ton of utility.

I reviewed the FIDO-1 in a previous edition of Tactical News Magazine which can be read online by clicking the image below. Stay tuned for my review of Litefighter’s other tent, the LiteFighter-1, coming up sometime in the next few months.
