Brous is a custom knife maker who has designed a few models of knives for SOG like this model, the GROWL. The first thing that strikes you is how heavy the knife is at 5.4OZ, being fully stainless steel with a satin finish and sporting glass reinforced nylon handles, which is a material similar to GERBER SOG axe handles. I personally prefer micarta as this glass reinforced nylon tends to be smooth and slippery when wet if they don't have a lot of ridges or stippling, but on the other side the smoothness can work in your favor when it comes to carving as it's much easier on the hand over a knife that does have a lot of stippling.Add a comment
The Hoplite is the little brother pack to the Lambda, a pack we reviewed a year or so ago. The Hoplite is similar to the Lambda, but has some changes I like. The Hoplite doesn't have the detachable MOLLE flap; instead it has the MOLLE attached right to the pack. On the sides of the Lambda it has foldaway flaps that hide the MOLLE, but on the Hoplite you have the MOLLE fully exposed so it can be used without having to change anything.

I've been reviewing products for over 8 years and in those 8 years I've really learned what quality is. One thing when it comes to pet gear, 90% of what I've looked at is not made to the specs I'm used to. Me, I like a product to be worth the money you're shelling out for it.

When it comes to medial supplies many people today who are fans of military gear are using IFAKs, which stands for individual first aid kit. It gives you a compact and well-stocked kit for immediate help if you should become hurt.Add a comment
I received this little pack from Chinook medical and more pleased I could not be. The pack seems small and the cost of the pack is very reasonable at $26.95; at first I didn't think it had that much in it, but after taking some time to really check the pack out I was surprised.Add a comment
One useful piece of gear has always been dummy cords, they keep you from dropping your gear even if you think you put it in your pocket. For me dummy cords are a must! I've stopped to do something so many times and laid down a knife or tool and walked away without it. It's easily done when you're traveling or trapping, but with trapping you often come back the same path whereas when traveling you may not come back the same way for years!Add a comment
I found this product on the internet one day while looking up some gear and was instantly intrigued,. The Land Shark bivi , or bivy, is a small shelter made for one person that is designed to be an emergency shelter, but it has some neat benefits that no other bivi has!

When it comes to survival and preparing for disasters and storms, there are many options for communications. Often people will say "well I will just call on my cell phone" but this shows how little they know. In a real emergency cell towers can be down and as anyone who owns a cell will tell you even at the best of times they will not work when you need them!Add a comment
I've been doing a lot of thinking about survival weapons and searching on the Internet... typically I like the bow, it's easy to use & repair and you can make arrows just about anywhere and from anything, but they can be a little bulky. So this brings me to what I think is one of the best survival tools when it comes to getting food for your bug out bag, a slingshot.Add a comment
The Tangle is a new offering from SOG. This blade is designed to be a low profile lightweight knife, so they have done away with the handle scales and traded out for an open look with a fully wrapped paracord handle. The Tangle is not necessarily a survival knife; I would say more on the defense side, as the blade is shaped ideally for slashing. I will say the knife holds up well to field use, but with a large belly and short blade, you're getting a knife that's not ideal for things such as batoning wood or cutting large trees. But then again as the old saying goes, the only true survival knife is the one you have on you at the time, so since this is an EDC (every day carry), it's probably going to be more of a survival knife than others you own!Add a comment
