Leatherman 831192 Squirt PS4 blue
$21.27
CamelCamelCamel says the average price on Amazon is $24.99, and the previous lowest (two years ago) is $21.51
If you missed spyderco monkey's most excellent review of this tool, you're in for a treat. :)

Note that only the blue one is that cheap.


Ditto on majorhavoc's plug for the pack of 10 cheapo mylar blankets!
I carry an AMK Heatsheet in every kit that's big enough, and carry at least one cheapo in all but my smallest kits, plus my main FAKs. As he points out, ten is not "too many". They're so small, they're easy to add. :)

Plus, if you order both of those together, you get free shipping! :)

I always keep at least one modest priced prepper item in the "saved" area of my Amazon shopping cart, so if I find a deal that's below the cut off for free shipping, I can bump it up. :)

I've got Amazon Prime and I was offered the following option:

Price: $7.95 (+free two day shipping)
Sold by BP MEDICAL SUPPLIES and Fulfilled by Amazon.

I live in WA, so anything actually sold by Amazon would have 9.9 percent sales tax added to it. Because this is sold by BP Medical Supplies, there's no sales tax. So, you can save 4 cents and don't need any other items if you've got Prime.

Two mora knives 15 bucks.

http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format ... 8431592903" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

One looks much like a Mora #2 and the other maybe a Mora #1/0. The Mora #1/0 makes for a great neck knife. Guessing both combined would go for 10-12 dollars more full retail and they wouldn't have the leather loop thing.

Pentax Gameseeker 4-12x40 riflescope + 10x42 roof prism binoculars - $66.65 shipped. (Regularly $279.99 [yeah, right])

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0010HFMP0/ref ... XX7CB8TZFZ

Image

$160 seems like a more realistic "regular" price, although the Pentax webstore will be happy to sell it to you for $199.00 (http://www.pentaxwebstore.com/detail/PTX+KB60000)

This could work for someone who is looking for a budget riflescope and could use a pair of compact binoculars for their BOB. I couldn't find any independent, professional reviews on this scope. Back when I was conversant in optics, the Pentax brand was right up there, but at this price I have to think this is no better than the Centerpoint scopes you find at Wallyworld. Which is to say perfectly decent as long as you're not into match shooting or betting your life on this glass. Slap this bad boy on a .22 and I have to think it'll do fine.

Toss in some of these UTG scope rings (I've used them; they're surprisingly decent) and for about $75 shipped, you got a soup to nuts optical system.

12 throwing knives with case for $16+$5 shipping.

No info on the steel type, and I haven't done business with this place before, so caveat emptor.

Try posting this question in the Strictly MultiTools thread. I'm sure you'll get lots of good advice there.

Came across what looks like a decent deal on REI Flash 30 pack.

http://www.rei.com/product/830305/rei-f ... pecial-buy" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Image
Regular Listed Price $80.00.
Half price with discounts (on sale for $50.00 with an additional 20% off).
I don't own one, but it looks like a decent bag for the price. There are a few youtube reviews for anyone interested.

Thanks for the post on the Flash Pack 30. Great price. I can't believe I am considering buying another pack! :shock:

Double pack of Mora knives posted by Woodswalker above are sold out at Sportsman's Guide. I'm on the look out for these any time they can be had for under $10/knife.

Stainless Steel 38oz. Nalgenes are back!!!
(but, probably, only temporarily until they sell out again!)


Image

$26.99 and free shipping

http://store.nalgene.com/product-p/1778-1002.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


They'll probably go like hotcakes, so if you've been on the fence about picking one of these up, you better act quickly! I own no less than a dozen of these 38oz. (and 32oz.) bottles, and I use one every day at work...they're a great deal, even at these prices. (I remember when they first came out and could be had for ten or twelve bucks a pop through certain "deal" sites.)

No need to thank me. 8-)



Nalgene also has some BPA free bottles on sale...

Blue Wide Mouth 32oz. Bottle

http://store.nalgene.com/ProductDetails ... 750%2D1205" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
$4.99

Green Narrow Mouth 32oz. Bottle

$4.99

Purple Narrow Mouth 32oz. Bottle
Image
http://store.nalgene.com/product-p/1750-2532.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
$4.99


For the 3 additional bottles above, it's also Free shipping over $10

jimmiwan, On the REI pack you mention an additional 20% off. Is that after the $50 price? How?

Thanks

Sorry. I should have specified on that part.

It was an additional 20% of with a coupon code that could be used by all customers on REI Outlet items, but it appears that I was either wrong, or they've restricted the 20% coupons to "members only" since I posted it.
