Re: Ponchos and Poncho Liners

Because apologizing for being freshly out of stock and refunding your money like any real business would do wasn't an option? Assuming your customers are stupid puts you in a lot of hot water. Wow, just wow. Anyway, I'm still waiting on a woodland poncho liner to come in from Sportsmansguide.com. It...

Re: flexible canteens

Got a pair assuming you could crush them down when empty, but I warn you, the plastic will crease and that worries me since those creases form a point of weakness where the plastic can fail in the future. Unlike the flexibility of the 2qt canteens which I already own and don't worry much at all abou...

Re: Bug Out Uniform are BDUs a bad idea?

As someone who already wears BDU pants and issue boots pretty much all the time, I can already attest to the fact it's incredibly easy to give most civilians the wrong idea at first glance. As someone had said before, if you look professional and act professional, people will assume you are professi...

Re: Gear Brand - Propper

I've been wearing Propper BDU pants almost every day for the last 3 years, and they are still almost new, if a tad faded from a zillion washes. They're super comfortable and the ripstop fabric really works. I recommend the 65/35 poly-cotton ones, they're great for all-season wear. One tip though, e...

For the price it's still a great piece. The liner is removable which is cool, but the front buttons annoy me. I would suggest getting a sl...

Re: College Dorm Legal BOB Challenge

Considering I'm a senior geology major and tend to keep my gear stowed in closets and in bags where you wouldn't find things unless you already knew where they were or what you were looking for, I tend to have some leeway, I suppose. That being said, I doubt anything I have would violate any rules t...
