What Is A “Man-Pack”?

Posted on 21 July 2014

What he wanted, and ended up designing himself, was a simple sling pack that would carry his day to day basic necessities, including a gun, and not cost an arm and a leg. He wanted it adjustable enough to feel custom, available in a few basic colors, and simple enough to be of use to everyone without a master’s degree in engineering. Enter the Man-PACK.

Oh Crap Gear

Posted on 18 July 2014

What if all you had was what you were WEARING and your guns. What would that consist of? Naturally this is radically different depending on what environment you are, or you expect to be, in. Still, it seemed an interesting enough challenge to contemplate that I thought I’d share.

Invisible Off-Body Concealed Carry

Posted on 17 July 2014

Off-body carry of a handgun – usually in a bag of some sort – isn’t the best option in terms of preparedness — you give up some weapon security and access time. But it is necessary on occasion. Sometimes the only other option is to not have a gun handy at all, and in some parts of the world, it may give you the option to suddenly “lose” an incriminating item.

RED Swivel (Rapid Emergency Detachment) from Blue Force Gear

Posted on 14 July 2014

To analogize: In the tactical world, you release the slide on your pistol by grasping the slide, pulling it fully to the rear, and letting it go. That would be a gross motor skill.

The Smokescreen™ Concealment Monopack

Posted on 11 July 2014

Off-body carry certainly isn’t the best way to carry a firearm, but sometimes it’s either the only way to do so, or an intelligent choice given the trade-offs. Situations meeting one of these requirements for off-body carry can come up fairly often for many of us. Of course there is now a plethora of concealed-carry bags, packs, and what-have-you on the market, many well-constructed and ergonomically designed, and most with Velcro-panel concealed carry compartments.

Marz Tactical Gear Combat Medic Pouch

Posted on 10 July 2014

Besides the obvious uses for this pouch, I found another great use. For this article I made this a tri-mission pouch to display the versatility. I filled it with medical supplies and rifle magazines as well as a survival kit. This could come in handy if you are on a manhunt in a rural area or maybe this is part of your Bug Out kit.

The PRIME Pack from 5.11 Tactical

Posted on 10 July 2014

In looking at the construction of the pack, both interior and exterior, it is obvious that 5.11 Tactical’s intent was to make a basic pack that allowed as much versatility as possible for the end user to customize it as necessary. MOLLE webbing is available on both sides of the pack, the face of the pack and INSIDE the pack; something not often seen.
