Re: New reviews from Gearlabs for solar panels 2017.

Thanks for posting. I have a number of old Brunton folding solar panels from maybe 12 years ago.
Would like to try some more modern designs.

Re: Ideas on best bug out firearms?

I would expect most self-protection scenarios to be inside 100 yards, with the vast majority at pistol distances. If faced with a pistol, I would rather have a carbine or a rifle. If having to be discreet, then a very compact SMG size carbine which can be easily stowed out of sight, would be a very ...

Re: Ideas on best bug out firearms?

There is no "best" just what is best for you. A LOT depends upon where you live. Where I live I can see up to 1,500+ yards in many directions. If I step outside, unless I'm shooting birds, the last thing I want is a shotgun. They have inferior capacity, are slow to reload, have greater recoil and ar...

One of my favorite items is a Norwegian Army wool sweater. These are extremely hard to find and it's a really useful piece. I grew up listening...

Re: New production Polish NATO Jerry Cans $19.99

Just an FYI, while $20 seems like a good deal, don't forget the sale is without a spout, which they sell for $14 (but note they don't look to have the breather tube NATO Jerry can spouts are supposed to have to prevent the glugging). So your really looking at $34, plus shipping. Now that is still a...

Re: Tyvek Coverall suits. Ultimate Ultralight Survival kit!

Did this years ago winter camping in Maine. The ones we had lasted maybe 5 days in the woods before they were pretty shredded. But during that time they worked pretty well.

if you get a rip or tear you can patch it with duct tape too!!
