I bought one of these UA backpacks before my last two week trip home. It's a really nice bag for $20. It has a laptop sleeve. And lots of pockets. The only thing I notice is the front top pocket is only held down by two buckles. So it's like a napsack a bit. But I never had anything fall out. And if you just kept big bulky items in there you'd be fine. Normal second zippered pocket behind that. For $20 it's a GREAT backpack. Especially for like car go bags or bags you don't want to put a lot of money into. But I'd use it as an everyday carry too. You can't go wrong with this bag for $20. And Under Armour is a great company.

That is dirt cheap! I think I paid around $600.00 for mine, But it had been upgraded & it's in factory combat brown.

They say these Mora style knives are from Sweden. You can buy 10 for $3.99 each. Or one for 12 bucks. If your in the market for a large lot of Mora style knives for places that they might get stolen (car) or don't want to worry about (burying) these might be the ticket. They also sell Mora's. And it's my local surplus store. A really great place for surplus and other items. Check them out.

Not a bad way of pitching the value proposition of this knife. I own one, an early purchase before I became more sophisticated about knives. The steel is the weakest attribute; it takes an edge well enough, but requires more frequent sharpenings than any of my other knives. Pommel breakage issue that gave the original version a bad rep was addressed years ago. I've hammered and batonned with no ill effects.

The sheath, firesteel and the whistle are quite servicable. Integrated diamond hone is for emergency field sharpening only; it's too coarse for regular edge maintenance. A Sharpie marker on the orange stitching and black paracord wrap on the handle go a long way towards toning down the Bear Grylls branding.

I figured it was a POS. I've never owned one. Thank you for the mini review. The only Bear Grylls product I ever saw positively reviewed was their little solar charger. Only good for phones. But very rugged and very lightweight. Outdoor Gearlabs did a review. https://www.outdoorgearlab.com/

If we discuss further we should probably start a BOG thread. ;)
