Swiss+Tech MMCSSS Micro-Max 19-in-1 Keychain Multitool $7.19 & eligible for FSSS on Amazon

This is a nifty, well engineered little item. They normally go for between $10 and $20 in stores ($14.99 seems to be the norm). This, along with a button cell LED and maybe a Victorinox Classic, and you've got a mini EDC right on your keychain.

Free super saver shipping kicks in at $25 unless you have Amazon Prime, so consider this a filler item to meet that threshold if there's another, under-$25 item from Amazon you've been holding off on buying. It also makes a cool stocking stuffer for that little prepper in your life. (Shopping for the holidays in June? Now THAT'S what I call sensible disaster preparation! :wink: )

If anyone else was waiting for a quality Multicam pack to be affordable, Spec Ops' modernized take on the ALICE pack has gone on clearance in that pattern for $115.

I can attest that Spec Ops gear is overbuilt and very good, but you can find that opinion from most folks on this forum. I have their "T.H.E. Pack" with the liner-frame pad, and it's both comfortable and crazy tough. It's built like a burlap sack that's been starched. I took it on a 300-mile motorcycle trip this past weekend. I figured it'd handily shrug off a road rash (knock on wood) at the expense of killing my back or digging in with straps, but it didn't accelerate fatigue at all, it felt like I was wearing a winter coat. I picked up a pouch and a wallet from them on clearance, and it's all made of the same 1000-denier cordura nylon as the pack. Made in the USA, lifetime warranty.

magpul Gen 2 rear flip back up sight in Black, Flat Dark Earth, OD Green, and Foliage Green for 39.99 out the door (fs)
use coupon code : July4
palmetto is sluggish on shipping currently due to all their sales, but i usually get my stuff within 5-10 business days.
http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.ph ... -gen2.html

I've been keeping on eye on the troy metal ones, 2-3x as much as these magpuls. Also be aware there are some knock off magpuls on amazon for paintball guns. if their not over 70 for the set it's probably too good to be true.

They also have their H.U.M.P (Hydration Utility Multiple Platform) hydration pouch on sale for $9.95. This pouch is designed to be easily connected to any LBE or ruck, includling ALICE and MOLLE and lets you slip your entire hydration carrier inside.

I was at my local Target yesterday. ALL Camelbak bottles were on clearance over in the camping/exercise section. Picked up a couple .75 liter Better Bottles for less than $7/each.

It's not a tactical pack, but golite has their Quest pack discounted beyond the 50% sale price until July 2. $90 for the 50l, $100 for the 65l, and $110 for the 80l. I have the 65L and it is one of the most comfortable packs I've ever had.

10-pack Emergency Mylar Thermal Blanket $7.95 & eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping (Amazon)

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GC ... 11O1HS2GGC

80 cents apiece. Toss one in your BOB, another in your EDC and maybe a couple in your car emergency kit or your FAK to treat trauma victims going into shock. Give the rest away as stocking stuffers.

Or better yet, buy three 10 packs and a filler item to qualify for FSSS, and next winter wander downtown and hand them out to the homeless.

$9.99 for a car cigarette lighter DC to AC power converter (up to 150 watts) + $4.99 shipping. It's not the flash sale, so you don't need to sign up to see the deal, which means that I don't think this violates the rules. If it does, my apologies. D: (Also, the ice-cream maker on sale has 4.5 stars out of 500+ reviews on Amazon and is half the price :V)

CRKT 9200 Tool $31.49 + shipping (5% off with coupon code 'CRKT9200' (not confirmed)). Shipping appears to be about $6.

http://www.allcooltools.com/collections ... tom-stokes

Image

Apparently CRKT would have us believe that Ed Van Hoy and Tom Stokes are some sort of rock stars of the knife design world. I'll leave it to you to decide if that notion has any validity. But I will say that this is an interesting and refreshingly different take on the concept of a pocket "multi-tool". Basically, if it's multi-function and ridiculously over-engineered, I'm interested.

No I don't own it, but CRKT does have a solid reputation and I have no reason to believe this isn't a very well built implement. Suggested retail of $49.99 actually sounds realistic for a change, based on prices I've seen for other CRKT knives.

Product description:

". . . . the 9200 is a sturdy multi-tool that comes with a 2.25 in. liner lock knife blade and 2.5 in saw blade both made from 5Cr15MoV steel, wire stripper, automatic push button opening phillips/regular screwdriver with additional bits, bottle opener and a multi-fit box wrench. Comes with Hex Drivers 3,5,7, Phillips drivers PH1, PH2 and a magnetoc PH3 adapter. Includes nylon sheath. "

(additional observation: the two side deploying screwdrivers pop out with a push button and each have their own separate liner lock; cool 8-) )

A positive, but balanced professional review can be found here:
