A new flashlight from Thrunite, this is the TN10 V2, a compact EDC light that (if you use 14500 batteries) will give you 500 lumens of output. It worked well for me once I got the light on, and that is an issue I have with this light.
Here’s a quick look at 3 new knives from Gerber that I’ve been EDCing and that I’ve liked. In the last few years Gerber has put out a lot of new smaller, folding knives, but these 3 have been the winners for me. 2 are budget-friendly and one is
Basu contacted me and offered to sponsor a review of their
eAlarm +. Having seen one like this in the past, I thought yeah, let's see what's new about this one. Pretty cool little item and for only $16, it's really worth checking out.

In this video we are looking at the Thrunite TH30 and the Nitecore HC33. Both were solid lights, both are convertible so they can become an EDC light for you, and there were actually features from each on that I liked. Check out the video and see if
This is the first unboxing I've done for the PMP Prep Box and I gotta say his tagline about no fillers seems to be spot on. This box was only $100 and I think it's a SOLID box. Cooking gear from the Pathfinder Store, Mountain House meals, and
The Kizer S.L.T. is a large EDC knife that will grab some attention. At 8.5 inches, it's not small and as you'll see it reminds me of a few different 'organic looking' knives I've seen in the past. Large, EDC, not for the woods but this knife worked
I have liked the Sheepdog knives since I first saw them, but I was wondering if they were actually usable as EDC knives. As you will see in this video, I think they are actually quite functional and the look is so cool. Check out the video and
I got it, I tested it, and I like it. The Thrunite TH30 headlamp is going to give you over 3000 lumens of output at the highest setting, but even at around 1000 lumens you'll get over 1.5 hours of run time. The fact that it can convert to
The Kizer Feist is a unique-looking knife with a pretty unique deployment mechanism as well. With S35VN steel and a very unique front-flipper design, this thing is going to be great for some and a 'no thanks - too different' for others. Either way, check out the video
The Maxpedition Riftblade is the bigger brother to the Riftpoint that I reviewed recently. This one holds quite a lot of gear as you'll see in this video, and it also served me well as a bag for travel - check it out!

Fixed blade OR Folder for your everyday carry - which one? In this video we look at these 2 options and consider the ESEE Izula and the ESEE Zancudo. I like both and honestly I am still undecided on which one I like more for EDC. Check

Cool new knife from a new (to me) company. The Blade Runner Systems Minuteman knife is a sleek, urban/industrial looking EDC blade with S35VN steel that I think you'll be seeing in my EDC rotation. These guys are a part of the knife community so I look forward
The new Vanquest Katara stood out to me at Shot Show 2018 because I am always looking to find new and innovative features in everyday carry (EDC) gear. This bag has a ton of organization and also allows you to convert it from a backpack to a sling bag
I’m always interested in checking out new survival kits, so when Wandering Raven contacted me, I was intrigued by this budget-friendly kit. It has the basics that will keep you alive if you have a decent skill set in the woods. I would swap out a couple items for other
I'm LOVIN' this light - the new Olight i1R EOS is now my favorite keychain flashlight, giving 130 lumens of output. And it weighs in at .42 oz. and measures just under 1.5 inches long. Check it out!

Fitorch - I've now tested out 3 of their lights and so far - no too shabby. This light, the M30R, offers up to 1800 lumens, is a definite thrower, and it can charge up your USB-compatible devices. Pretty cool - check it out and tell me what
A motion-sensor headlamp is a cool product to have, especially if you're in a situation where you need or want to keep your gloves on at all times. The Olight H16 seems to be a solid light, giving you 500 lumens of output. The win of this one
In my view, the medical side of everyday carry and survival is too often under-rated. Well, Wild Hedgehog Tactical does a great job making really solid kits available to people like you and me. This kit is one that can be worn on the ankle and it has

A fleece liner for your sleeping bag can give you some extra warmth on a cold night when you are out in the woods. This liner from Osage River is a low-cost way to increase your warmth. You can get it in a variety of colors - check
The Wazoo Survival Belt is a great and innovative product for anyone interested in survival, camping, EDC, and more. I got my first Wazoo product years ago (one of their survival bracelets) and I was impressed. I just like the 'outside the box' thinking they have, and now
The Osage River Double Hammock is new to me, as is hammock camping, but I really like it. Comfortable and low-cost (compared to a lot of other hammock companies out there). And the fact that it comes with the hardware (carabiners, rope) is a bonus for sure -
