Gear Diary: It Ain’t Easy Being Green

Post Image

I purchased my first Shagmaster Hoodie a couple of weeks ago.  My initial impressions have left me wondering why I waited this long.  I’m a huge fan of Triple Aught Design’s hoodies.  I also own two Rangers, a Stealth, and I’ve been field testing a Praetorian.  The Shagmaster is warmer than any of them and […]

Person of Interest Soundtrack Project

Post Image

  This really has nothing to do with EDC, but I’m going to share it anyway.  One of my favorite shows is Person of Interest.  I’ve combed through the first four seasons and captured some of the best music to compile a Season 1-4 Soundtrack.  This isn’t the score music that you can buy on […]

Gear Diary: I’m not a Prepper but Maybe I Should Be

Post Image

Everyday Carry (EDC) and Preparedness are closely related.  As Phil Burns discussed in his Tiered Approach to EDC,  Preppers “naturally apply their prepper mindset to analyze… which items belong in their Every Day Carry (EDC) items, Bug Out Bags, Survival storage, etc.” I totally agree but I’m not sure the opposite is true in all […]

Gear Diary: GoRuck Yourself

Post Image

I’ve been thinking about this ever since I left a certain forum so I’m going to come out and say it.  I like GoRuck.  I don’t like everything they do and I’m not a fanboy by any stretch but I have a real problem with the unwarranted ridicule that’s thrown their way. I’ve been carrying […]

My Visit to Triple Aught Design’s Dogpatch HQ

Post Image

This past week I found myself in San Francisco, CA and decided to visit Triple Aught Design’s Dogpatch HQ.  Dogpatch is a historical warehouse and factory district on the city’s eastern waterfront.     It’s an area in a state of flux.  The neighborhood seems to be a haven for people who pride themselves in […]

Gear Diary: United’s Baggage Policy

Post Image

I’m gearing up for a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands and I came across United’s Baggage Policy while checking in for my flight online.     17″ X 10″ X 9″?  They’re really cramping my style.  Bastards.   Of course, the gate agent isn’t going to bring out a tape measure.  So a larger […]
