This is the first offering from Gerber for a tactical pen solution. I like tactical pens for many reasons; when you carry a tactical pen there's no question you're using it for a non-lethal intent, unlike with a knife where it can be taken any way people see fit that day. The Gerber Impromptu is my first stainless steel tactical pen and I will admit it's much heavier than my others, but it really feels good in the hand and I don't know if it's just me but weight in my mind tends to say quality!Add a comment
I've recently been looking for a smaller laptop bag, something to fit a 15" so I've been looking around and found a pack from Direct Action Gear. This pack is their Messenger Bag and they also have a small Messenger bag in case this one is more than you need.

Fallkniven knives are considered to be some of the best production knives in the world. I know a number of friends who own them and swear by them. I chose the A1 because of its size and weight; for me, if you're going to carry only one knife it needs to be up to all tasks.

I've learned a lot in my life time, doing martial arts and reviewing knives, also talking to guys who've use them in combat and assimilating information wherever I could find it. One thing I've learned is that stiletto knives or combat daggers have been used for as long as combat has been around, but most have the same flaw - and anyone who has used them can testify this to be true - weak tips.Add a comment
The ESEE laser Strike started out as a TOPS Brand knife many years ago then ESEE started to produce them. I will admit right off the bat, I'm a huge fan of ESEE and they make some of the best survival knives on the market at a reasonable price! The ESEE Laser Strike is one that is a true survival knife through and through, and even has some hidden features that are just for survival!Add a comment
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
