I took a little hiatus over the holiday visiting my old stomping ground with the family. Arizona was unusually cold while we were there, which figured since we were hoping to get a little sun (and warmth) after a rough start to the Winter here in Chicago. I wanted to take the new Triple Aught Design Fastpack Litespeed as my go-to pack on the trip to further test its capabilities but I just couldn’t make it work. I had to take too much gear with me on our two-week adventure and a smaller pack didn’t cut it.
I opted for the Vertx EDC Gamut and the extra organization and storage capacity made my life easier. However, the Gamut didn’t completely fit under the seat in front of me on the plane so I was lucky my wife had booked me the exit row.
I received a GoPro 3+ Black Edition as a gift over Christmas. This is my first experience with the GoPro so expect some posts on the subject going forward. And of course, more video based reviews. 😉
I did a little gear research over the break and it led me to Hogue Knives. Their collection of Allen Elishewitz designed folders and in particular the double hollow ground EX-04 model really caught my eye. I have this beauty incoming.
My Kershaw blades have set the bar pretty high for production folders so we’ll see if the EX-04 measures up.
