Improved Pelican Case Special Forces Survival Kits

Improved Pelican Case Special Forces Survival Kit

During the course of my career as a Green Beret, I was issued many things, some I was made to turn back in to the Army and others I was allowed to keep. My Pelican 1020 Survival kit was one of the items I was allowed to keep: originally intended to keep a soldier alive […]

Winter Survival: Surviving a plunge through the ice

Winter Survival: Surviving a plunge through the ice

The crash through the ice was surprising. The chest constricting cold hit you immediately as the water flowed over your Gore-Tex soaking your insulating layers. With extreme perseverance and strength, you manage to pull yourself onto the bank of the stream, you lay on the bank for a moment as the water begins to freeze […]

My PACE Lid Loadout | Water Bottle Survival Kit

My PACE Lid Loadout: Water Bottle Survival Kit

PACE stands for (Primary, Alternate, Contingent and Emergency). For those of you military guys that will sound very familiar. In the Marine Corps, they constantly drilled into us being prepared and having multiple contingency plans. The theory behind the PACE lid is to have a place to keep those needed items in the event something unexpected happens and […]

5 Ways to Up Your Prepping Game

5 Ways to Up Your Prepping Game

If you’ve been prepping for a little while, you’ve probably got the basics covered.  You have a bug-out bag, a decent stash of MRE’s or #10 cans of freeze-dried food and a plan to keep it all secure once you’re hunkered down.  What’s next?  Besides piling up more supplies, what else can you do to […]

Electric Survivor Filter Pro

Electric Survivor Filter Pro X | Portable, Powerful Purity

Water: a basic necessity for survival, but often enough treated as an afterthought.  When heading out camping, most usually grab a gallon of it in a jug and go.  What happens when you need more?  You can drink from a stream, never-minding the pine needles and floaties, and pray that you don’t get crippling diarrhea.  […]

Their vision is, “based upon designing extraordinary, high-quality and unique outdoor and urban gear“. It’s a no compromise operation when it comes to product design and manufacturing.

Direct Action Dragon Egg MK II backpack | A light assault and EDC pack

Direct Action Dragon Egg MK II backpack | A light assault and EDC pack

Typically I shy away from backpacks covered in MOLLE and paracord. They scream tactical, military and give an overall perception to others that the bag contains something along those lines. I’m not sure that I would carry this pack around town in an urban environment because of that. I would recommend this pack for use […]

Dragon Fire Tinder Bag | When Your Life Depends on Starting a Fire

Ever been on a camping or backpacking trip where it rained all night long? Maybe you planned on making a nice hot cup of coffee in the morning, but all the available firewood and tinder was soaked.
