Gear Revisited: Hill People Gear Connor

Post Image

The Hill People Gear Connor has been my day hiking pack since I reviewed it late last year. Reference my first impressions post for features and more pictures.  Yes, I know I didn’t post a follow-up review on it.  The initial post was more detailed than a typical “first look” would be and my view of […]

I was in LL Bean the other day and stumbled upon their new LL Bean Cliffside Cordura Jeans.     It was the Cordura tag, along with the dark indigo color, that initially caught my attention.     I’ve seen Cordura’s tag on a ton of bags I’ve reviewed but never on a pair of […]

Tactical Diaper Bag: Do you even Operate Bro?

Post Image

This picture courtesy of Todd Kessopa, who went all in with his Tactical Diaper Bag setup.  Todd will be totally prepared when the s#it hits the fan!  😉     The bag, if you’re wondering, is a MSM Adapt Pack, which I reviewed back in 2014.  A great little backpack.  Very affordable too.

Best Bag to take on an Amusement Park Vacation

Post Image

I spent the last week at Disney World in Orlando, FL and… since I’m me… the trip afforded the opportunity to pause and reflect on what would be the best bag to take on an amusement park vacation.  First off, some background.  I’ve had plenty of park experience from which to pull from.  This was […]

Dunamis Gear Runt Backpack Review

Post Image

An “Escape and Evade pack”.  What does that mean exactly?  In a non-mil application, an E&E pack is designed to hold essential gear that you’d need in an emergency to get to safety.  It can also be used as a small Every Day Carry bag for the minimalist or as a day pack for short […]

Gear Diary: Alpha One Niner Evade Prototype Strap Kit

Post Image

In my Alpha One Niner Evade review, I talked about how the shoulder strap pads were a little short for my long torso, which caused the webbing that attached the straps to the pack to cut into my sides when not wearing a coat. Helm and I talked. I sent him a few comparison pictures […]

Alpha One Niner Evade Backpack Review

Alpha One Niner Evade Backpack
