Hill People Gear FrankenPack Review: Umlindi, Connor, and M2016

The Hill People Gear Umlindi with a M2016 Top Lid and Connor Pocket

When I was a kid, I loved playing with Legos.  I guess that’s why I dig this Hill People Gear kit.  It’s like Legos for pack nerds.  The Connor has been my day hiking pack for 18 months now.  I recommended it to a couple of my close friends and they carry one now too. […]

Post Image

Earlier this month, I spent a week at the legendary Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona.  I took their 250 Defensive Pistol otherwise known as “The Gunsite Experience”.     There are many articles on the web providing a blow-by-blow description of the class.

Many municipality budgets are being stretched thin and First Responder services are being affected in ways that aren’t always made known to the general public.  I was at my local range and I asked the manager if they had any trauma incidents since they opened.  There were two.  One accidental gunshot wound stemming from hot […]

First Look: Prometheus Design Werx Solo Jacket 100C

Post Image

The Prometheus Design Werx Solo Jacket is made from 10-ounce 100% Cotton Canvas treated with a DWR finish.   It sort of reminds me of the TAD Rogue Jacket, but hopefully without all the shrink-to-fit weirdness and gorilla length sleeves.  Also, that jacket was made from 6-ounce NYCO ripstop, so the material on the Solo […]
