Anybody else watch Revolution on NBC last night?

Revolution

It wasn't horrible...no more suspension of belief than Zombies. What do you all think. I'll probably give it another episode or two to see how I like it.

Re: Other products similar to RIBZ front pack / Hill People

Hazard4 has the Ventra Pack too. I have a Kifaru Koala and a Ribz. I like both for different reasons. Maxped and Ribz are supposedly partnering to come out with a more "beefy" chestpack.

Re: Warren Axe and Tool

It doesn't look like its seen a grinder at all, so hopefully a wire brush, some sandpaper, and some time sharpening it plus a new handle and I'll have a nice new-to-me axe. It's a bigger than a little forest axe, but it will work great as a splitting axe.

Found an old Warren axe head that's not too beat up. Anyone have any thoughts on quality? Is it worth re-hafting for use?

I'd go with a Gransfors Bruks or Wetterling, instead of some lame axe-shaped-object.

An edged battery, in my mind, would be an EDC blade, a good multitool, an outdoors / hunting blade, a chopper / large blade, a filet knife, a butcher's knife, a machete, an axe, and a saw...so you've pretty much got those covered, except maybe the filet and butcher's knife. Everything else is just g...

I have several cloaks (the reenactor thing) and they're great, but bulky. I could roll my big full-circle wool cloak up and it would be about the size of, well, a wook blanket, with just as much capability to keep you warm as, well, a wool blanket. That said, I give you the Hill People Gear Mountain...

Honestly since you carry a G17 (like me!) I would go for a Sub-2000 that takes Glock mags as a trunk-gun, along with a bunch of 33rd mags. It folds up super compact, light, easy to shoot, good for plinking or for a trunk gun you can put on top of your spare tire or in a side container without drawi...

I will say that I CCW a pistol and understand that I'll most likely be reaching for my pistol first in a direct emergency. The rifle will mostly be used for plinking, but could be used in an extreme emergency. Another reason I'm thinking about having one is that last year I put a deer hit by a truck...

Matching colored accessories for Kifaru.

Does anyone know if any companies are making molle pouches or sheathes with the same color material as Kifaru's foliage? I'm looking for a flashlight holder and Leatherman sheath to mount on a Koala. I'll probably go with Maxped ones if I can't find ones that match. Wish Kifaru made some.
