Re: Portable power solutions thread.

I just picked up the öal Zero Yeti 150. It was on special and it came with 2 of the Boulder 15 panels and free shipping. I dropped 229.99 plus 6.00 tax on it. I wanted something that could tackle a few of my needs when bugging in while relying on the Guide 10 and Nomad 7 when I bug out. It sits at 1...

5 gallon olive/pepperoncini barrels work great. Ask at any place that has olives or pepperoncinis.

Re: Just got an Ontario pilot survival knife and need help

Best advice: return it. Seriously, it's a subpar piece of gear, especially for what you probably paid for it. People in the prepping world get all hot and bothered over USGI gear, but you need to remember that "USGI" does not mean "best," it means "meets bare minimum standards and mass produced at ...

Re: Survival "soft" skills?

Jack of all trades. You have to be able to work with limited tools and resources. You have to be able to do or learn to do anything. Empathy isn't a skill but it's useful for reading people and gauging their potential as well as their weaknesses. Profiling goes right there with empathy and serves yo...

Re: ramen- not the emergency food of choice

Honestly in the PAW the last thing I'd be worried about is how unhealthy ramen is. To me it's a quick easy comfort food. More of a medium to add other things to. I've never seen a noodle come out of my butt so I can assume that I've digested the noodles.

Re: Let's talk melee!

While Mikeyboy and Slugg make a good case for the spear, I'm inclined to disagree on carrying around a spear with a big metal tip on it. Maneuverability is the first that comes to mind. You may have to go through some tight spaces and you may have to leave it. Safety of your friends is another conce...

Re: Backpack to carry field gear: Plate carrier, war belt, e

You could get the ILBE with the assault pack. Put the plates in the assault pack and either put that in your car or in the main pack towards your back and up a little. Then put the knee pads and stuff in there to brace it. I wouldn't leave the plate carriers where they can be seen outside of a bag f...

Re: MOLLE Water Bottle Pouch

I have several rollable plastic pouches that fit perfectly on my sawyer water filter. They store easy and when full can slide into just about anywhere. One pouch came with the filter, one from walmart and the last from thinkgeek. I just don't like the large space that the bladders take up.

So I'm curious but not sure how the modular packs are attached. Is it like the Alice packs? Do you have frames available too? I'm just trying to envision it so I can weigh my options come tax refund time. I looked at your site but I couldn't see how it's attached.

Re: German Sheperd watch dog problem.

If you have two non-neutered males you need to make it clear that neither of them is the alpha. You are the alpha. That being said you should get rid of the dominant one for a female, but honestly I'd just go with one dog. If you can't control him and the other one at the same time then when it real...
