Re: USMC Poncho + Liner vs GoreTex Parka aka ECWCS?

Good day, I will put my two cents out there for what its worth. The GoreTex Parka is a good piece of gear, but it sucks in a good rainstorm. However, in saying this I've never been lucky enough to have a new one issued to me. I'm active duty Marine Corps and found them to always start to leak around...

Re: Current combat knife USMC?

I personally rock a Leatherman multi-tool a spyderco and a sweet awesome blade made by James Helm! :clap: I have this one on my gun and its better than the issued K-bar. This one stays in my seabag locked up, its okay but not worth the weight it brings IMHO. Each to his own I guess.

Re: solar powered battery charger?

Hey folks!

Thanks for you the great advice on this! I really think I will pull the trigger on the Goal Zero after this next trip. I do have a Brunton Freedom, maybe I can find a battery charger which runs on this device as well.

Thanks again for they help!

I agree with northernxposure, I have the Foretrex 301 and love it. This piece of gear was properly one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. I have used mine both in country and also on hikes back home. Very easy and clean to work.

Re: My friend is moving to Japan.

For what its' worth, I would recommend for you to pick up a small multi-tool. Nothing more than a three inch blade on it. Japan is very picky about blades. The radio is a good idea, but also a some type of solar charger. They are far and few between here. I don't know your friend, but I can almost b...
