Re: Why is it so hard to find a good B.O.B.?

There are no good women out there. I want a chick that is totally hot, wants to have porn star sex any time I feel like, is super intelligent, has oodles of money, laughs at all my jokes, and doesn't ever whine and just wants to sit on the couch and watch TV when we're not having the afore-mentioned...

Re: Digging Tools

Anyone ever use a Japanese Hori Hori knife like this one? Yes I have one that I got from Lee Valley, and it sat neglected and near forgotten in a box for ages. Doing a cleanup I came across it again. The sheath is utterly craptastic, and the handles are marginal but the tool itself is quite good. F...

If you want waterproof and you want it orange, this is about as close as you'll get.

Re: Anyone Modify/DIY your gear?

Why not check in with your local craft store? I'm sure you could find some great fabrics, thread, and needles for modding your gear. Also, I'd suggest a sewing machine to make the work a lot easier. I recently started doing some minor comfort modifications to a couple packs and pouches I own with m...

Re: Monster nose bleed.

Slightly off topic.....but my pal Scott told me this and I was almost in tears from laughing so hard as he told it. A bunch of years back he decides to take some LSD on a Saturday night. Now he is an experienced tripper, but this trip turned out to be quite an experience. About an hour in, just as e...

Re: tested some bug out gear

Terrific. Want to tell us about it? What is it? What was good about it? What wasn’t good about it? How long did you use it for? Under what conditions?

Because right now your post is little more than a not very accurately labelled or particularly helpful post about you going deer hunting.

Re: hammock's

Sorry, but people showing up at various forums to ask questions that have already been answered, often times many times already, is becoming a real bone of contention with me. “Hey I’m too lazy to read and answer my own banal question, so I expect everyone else to take the time and answer it for me....

Re: Which brand of 550 para-cord is the best?

It’s the real deal, and they’re good to deal with.

This is another of those overthink it questions. Are you making parachutes out of it? No. You're what, hanging up a tarp, making some zipper pulls, wrapping a knife handle? Then whatever you get will be fine.

Stop overthinking it.

If you're living pay check to pay check, I could think of other things to spend the money on, but hey, it's your money I guess.

Re: Similiar versions of Kiraru Long Pockets?

The standard Kifaru Long Pockets are 650 cubic inches (larger) and also have the advantage of not requiring your pack to have compression straps in the right place. They are likely over built. i wish they gave the purchaser the option of getting their pouches without the pack cloth lining, both as a...

No, there isn't anything else like Kifaru Long Pockets. There's a reason they cost what they do, and they are worth it.

Re: Kifaru Omni Yoke (56k Seppuku)

The Omni Yoke pre-dates the Molly Mac pack. I have a bunch of Kifaru packs, and after using them for several years, I think I am going to switch to using just the EMR pack frame with a series of three different sized bags I'm making that I can lash to the frame. I'm also working on some panniers tha...

Re: Elegant way to carry a headlamp

How bulky is it worn on your belt? Probably a little too bulky. Although I never actually carry it on a belt, ie my pants belt. I haven't got it here with me to measure the depth of it. I'll get back to you on that. I like having a pouch to keep it separated from other things (and also have a place...

Re: Elegant way to carry a headlamp

Here's what I did with a Tactical Tailor Frag Pouch to make it better suited to carrying a headlamp. Petzl did at one time have a pretty good pouch for their headlamps, but later replaced it with something I thought was inferior, sort of a clam shell design. Of course, I had to alter what they offer...
