DPx Gear HEST/F 2.0 T3 Triple Black Special Edition Review

DPx Gear HEST/F 2.0 T3 Triple Black Special Edition ReviewI've always been a fan of Robert Young Pelton, a man who some would say is either crazy or extremely brave! He has traveled to parts of the world and wars where few would come back, and has always returned, so I always found this to be a real testimony to his ability to survive. After all it's not all about tools... often it's what's in your head, as well as knowledge you have accumulated which keeps you alive!

GERBER Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade Review

BEAR.GRYLLS.ULTIMATE.PRO.1For full disclosure I didn't review the first bear Grylls fixed blade because after doing some research (as I do for all products we review) it was getting very bad reviews, but GERBER has made up for it with the new Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade!

Helinox Ridgeline Trekking Poles Review

Helinox Ridgeline Trekking Poles ReviewThis model of the Helinox Ridgeline Trekking poles is the Lever Lock With Button. The button is just a small push button which will lock into place when the lower part of the poles are deployed "with just a flick", but the lever is the part of the pole where you do most of the adjustment. They come in two models, either twist lock or lever lock. I've used both kinds of poles so it's easy for me to say which are the best (well for me anyway). I like how easy it is to adjust the lever version, very fast and no hassle at all.

EXTREMEBEAM M4 Scirrako Tactical Light Review

EXTREMEBEAM M4 Scirrako Tactical Light ReviewThe M4 is a unique light unlike any other I've reviewed. Many tactical lights are different because not all companies make them the same. It comes down to the beam - many tactical lights have a sharp beam in the center and some flood around the outside of the main beam while others have a lesser center beam with more flood allowing the user to buy just what he or she wants.

WalkStool Comfort 65 XXL Review

WalkStool Comfort 65 XXL ReviewThis item is the holy grail of fishing or backpacking gear. For many years people have tried to put out a product that could be used as a stool to sit on that was portable and light and more often than not they were anything but!

Leatherman Wave Review

Leatherman Wave ReviewThe Wave is the smaller brother of the Surge. Many of the items found in the Wave are very similar to the Surge. The Wave is similar in size and weight to GERBER and SOG multi-tools, but the cost is far lower. You can pick up a Wave for around $60 to $80 bucks new, where a SOG comes in at around $130 (you can get the SOG cheaper depending on where you buy it). The GERBER Multi-tools are around $84, so you can see in most cases the Leatherman tools come out cheaper if you shop around!

Agis Lambda Backpack Review

Agis Lambda Backpack ReviewWhen it comes to the outdoors, one of the most important things, is to have a quality backpack, like most people who trek in the woods know you need to have a way to transport your equipment. I personally think that a quality pack, ruck sack or Bergen, depending on what you call it is a must have, I've spent many years dealing with low quality packs and I can tell you, your not saving anything when you skimp on money!

Legacy Premium Meals Review

Legacy Premium Meals ReviewWhen I first started our backpacking I used MREs, and after years of advances in the market of backpacking foods I soon changed my preference to freeze-dried foods. MRE's are great if you live in an area where water is not easy to come by, or if you're on a mission or operations where you will just need to eat right out of the package or you can't stop to make a fire and eat. This is why they are called MRE which stands for Meals Ready to Eat.

ArmyTek Barracuda 1390 Lumens Tactical Light Review

ArmyTek Barracuda 1390 Lumens Tactical Light ReviewThe Barracuda XML2 is made by a Canadian company called ArmyTek www.armytek.com and has been kindly supplyed for our review. This is the largest tactical light I have reviewed to date. When I first tried the light in the daytime at home I will be honest I didn't think it was much brighter than my Fenix TK30 which Is 630 lumens. It was not until I took the two lights out into the field at night when I really learned just how bright it was!
