Re: Powertraveller's Powermonkey Extreme

FYI - Extreme Outfitters has this listed for $179.99, and coupon code VIP10 (or alternate code ANYSOLDIER) gives you another 10% off. Add in free UPS ground shipping for everything over $150, you can get this shipped for $161.99. I just ordered mine, so I should get it in a few days and I'll try to ...

Gear color question: 5.11 Sandstone vs TT/Other Coyote Brown

I am looking at picking up a 5.11 MOAB 10 in Sandstone for a GHB bag and wanted to put a TT Enhanced Admin Pouch on it which comes in Coyote Brown but have not been able to find a comparison of the two colors. I was wondering if anyone had any 5.11 stuff in Sandstone they could take a picture of nex...

Re: Survival Phone Apps

I have two iPhone apps for you. iBooks - I use it for any PDF documents I use often so that I don't have to download them from Dropbox. It also has over 100 eBooks and only takes up about 0.25 GB. When I went to the Shenandoah Valley of VA earlier this month, I downloaded the high resolution PDF map...

SOP / GOG

First of all, let me apologize to the OP for the way the first few people jumped down his throat. This is not a bad idea for several reasons and served to remind me to review my lists. When you are under stress your brain shuts down and anything you have around the house to serve as a reminder can b...

Can ya recommend a decent spotlight under $120?

This would all depend on what you are looking for. If you just want something better than a cheap plastic flashlight there are plenty of choices. For my EDC I have a Surefire G2X Tactical, 200 lumens for 2 hours. When I'm out walking the dog at night next to the woods I can pull it out and see a goo...

I had a round blow up in my face in a training class once. It was with a M&P .40 S&W and I was acting as the safety officer for the guy on the line.

What got me looking into it a little more was that it could charge my iPhone and iPad several times. Over a year ago I transitioned to all ebooks and read all the time on my iPhone and iPad.

I was exploring the web yesterday and came across the Powermonkey Extreme reading down an outdoor blog I found. I've look into solar chargers in the past and have passed over them because they either couldn't do what I wanted them to or they were too big. This one looks like it can charge an iPhone ...

Will do for future reference but with a hurricane coming I didn't want to wait on UPS. This is what I get for overlooking something like candles.

Well, after calling around to several stores in the area I ended up getting the tea light candles. That was one of the things lacking from my hurricane kit. I EDC a Surefire G2X Tactical and have several G2X Pros around the house and in the car with plenty of batteries for them along with my camping...

Anyone know of a shote that may stock emergency candles? I'm at walmart now and it turns out that they have a whole aisle full of pos crap candles which would drive me crazy if the power was out. I checked with Home Depot and they don't stock candles at all. Any other ideas?

Well, thanks for the feed back. I've used paint pens for making my front sight stand out a little more which I got from Todd Green on pistol-training.com and it has held up a lot better than I was expecting. If I were to use metal stamps I would of course put something on the inside like wood shims ...

How do you mark your magazines?

I was wondering how you mark your magazines to tell them apart from each other. One person I asked said they used one of those silver sharpies, but after about a month of use it rubbed off. I would prefer the solution be long lasting if not permanent so that rules out tapes which I assume would caus...

Jobsite Box / Steel Storage Chest makes a great gear l

Seems like it would be easier to get to the bolt to cut it. Small issue if the thing is buried under garage stuff and weighs 500 pounds though. How hard would it be to remove the box leg and bolt it flat to the floor do you think? The boxed leg is welded to the bottom and has end caps welded so it ...

Does this have any ability to be bolted to the floor? Or even access to the inside of the legs where I could drill holes so that I can bolt it to the floor?

I might just have to give this a try. I've been looking for a way to attach a Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel to a MOLLE loop backpack. Found one guy who could make one but he wants $75 for it. I figure I could put out the same in cash and be able to make it myself.

Re: MSR Hyperflow Micro Water Filter Review (Vid)

Hmmm....It looks kinda nice, but like you said, it would work best on solo trips. If you had two or more nalgenes I guess you would be able to screw the lid off the first one and place it on the second and just have one that has the filter cover on it.
