Re: Bug out clothing for less than the EOTWAWKI

I had an old friend tell me once that you should wear basically a slightly nicer version of the clothes you'd be working in to the interview. Meaning, that if you're going to interview for, say, a construction job, that a clean pair of carhartts and a clean button up work shirt would be what you sho...

Re: Leatherman Freestyle CX

Aside from the pliers, the most used tool on my Wave is the scissors. I especially like the new style (vs the old wave), simpler design which works out a lot better IMO. They're great for nail clippers. I also like the new bit changer system Leatherman has - opens your options up immensely. And whil...

Re: Equipment for wintergeddon, light winter camping gear

In addition to kindeys, remember that any area in your body a large amount of blood is passing through is a good spot to regulate your temperature (either warmer or colder, obviously in this instance you're trying to stay warm - but it works the same on a hot day trying to cool yourself down). The b...

Re: Anyone know where i can find staves and kidney strap for my

Is it a waist belt, or an actual hip belt? If its the latter, I don't think you'd be able to DIY it very well, unless you're pro at teh sewing machinez.

Re: Paracord Vs. Duct tape

550 cord no doubt. You can re-use it for one, a huge + for PAW gear. I always carry both, and I have yet to use duct tape for anything in the field, I use 550 cord every time I go camping. Learn to tie a damn knot, and you can do a lot more with cordage. Seems lots of people on here don't really kno...

Re: Equipment for wintergeddon, light winter camping gear

A big enough sleeping bag to take everything you don't want frozen in with you at night.

Lots and lots of high calorie hot drinks - tea w/ milk and honey, jello, hot cocoa etc.

Moar food (than summer camping)

pee bottle for inside your bag if you don't have a strong bladder

Re: The best Leatherman

New wave by far. It literally has everything I want in a multitool, and nothing I don't. Their new bit system is pretty awesome, IMO. And the tool by itself is small enough to be comfortable for me to carry around. The scissors are great, I never have to look for a nail clipper anymore. Pretty much ...

I don't think there's a thread, but I'll give it a shot.

Not so much drinkable, unless you have much bigger cahones (or alcohol problems :P) than the res...

Cauldron, awesome dome thing. I'm jealous, and it looks right out of the wastelands of the PAW too :P

Also pretty awesome burning man setup. It'd be cool to go sometime I think.

So one side has a water bottle pocket and the other has an admin pocket? Very intriguing. I'd be interested in a review after a hike or something.

Also, think about what tools you'll be buying - especially heavy ones like a machete/khukri. I haven't ever used a machete, but the general consensus (I think, don't quote me) on the boards is that they're only really useful in jungle/underbrush type environments, whereas a hatchet/saw combo is far ...

IMHO, the 3 most important things to spend money on are you're boots, sleeping bag/system, and pack. While once in a long while you can find deals on these, by and large you get what you pay for. And, IMO, these are the 3 most important things. Your boots are obviously important for keeping you movi...

Re: Opinions on selling pre-built BOBs please?

I see a whole bunch of surplus "I-wanna-play-GI-Joe" stuff, and not a whole lot of useful things. $350 for a pack, sleeping bag, and a gas mask?? Not anything near a kit. First off, IMO the MSS is way overkill. Much too heavy, and your average 'idiot American' doesn't need a -40 sleep system. You ca...

Re: OhioSniper1's 14 to to 21 day operations kit

Why two full sized pistols? While I might not agree with it, I get the theory behind the long arm and the carbine. But it seems like you'd be a lot better off with one pistol, or a pistol w/ a .22 conversion kit, or if you really want a full sized and a .22. I'm not a big fire arms person, but it se...
