Gear Review: Picolomako by Bastinelli Knives

As you’ve seen in a previous post, we’re all about the curved blades and retention rings. This knife—the Picolomako—is one of my favorite to carry. It’s comfortable, the sheath is robust and well attached, and capable of being deployed in a variety of carry options. Let’s get into the specs. This blade is 7.375″ overall,... Read More

Gear Review: My Medic Shield IFAK

As our readers know, we advocate greatly for the use of an IFAK (individual first aid kit), especially if you carry a concealed weapon. If you’re going to put holes in people, you better know how to patch them—we’ve all heard the cliche. But it’s a cliche for a reason–it’s true. My Medic puts out... Read More

Gear Review: Accumobility Mobility Balls

Check out this gear review for Accumobility balls. If you’ve spent any time in a CrossFit gym or with a bunch of runners, you know LAX Balls are used en masse to break up knots. You’ve probably even seen them taped together to make “peanuts” to break up your thoracic muscles. I know, I used... Read More

Gear Review: Acumobility Eclipse Roller

Check out the Acumobility Eclipse Roller review and learn how it can help you recover after tough workouts. I said it in my post about the Acumobility Ultimate Back Roller, that you need to recover. And as a culture, we spend so much times at a desk, and ignore thoracic extension and back health in general.... Read More

Gear Review: Microlite 1000ml and 500ml Bottles

If you’re going to train hard, you need to hydrate. Hydrate. And then hydrate some more. Especially when it’s 100 degrees plus in the summer like where I live. But plastic bottles not only are horrible for the environment, they leech toxins when it gets that hot. And, if you spend as much time on... Read More

Gear Review: Acumobility Ultimate Back Roller

Recovery is everything. There’s no point in going hard, if you’re not going to recover properly. Contrary to popular belief, you can’t run three Murph’s in a row, and not at least stretch, hydrate, and roll out a bit. Now me personally, I have a tough time keeping my thoracic mobilized. Despite staying very active... Read More

Gear Review: Lowa Aerox Boots

Lowa has been making boots for nearly 100 years–since 1923 to be exact. They’re all handcrafted in Europe, and all around stellar boots for the trails to the rat race of life. You know we loved the Lowa Zephyr GTX Hi boot and their more lightweight offering, the Aerox GTX Lo Surround has even more... Read More

Electric Tech One XLS sunglasses review

I picked up another pair of the Electric sunglasses as I was very happy with my first pair (see our review for the Charge). Right out of the box these glasses feel light but strong enough for day to day abuse. The first thing that I like is that the glasses stay on my face... Read More

Gear Review: QVO Tactical Holsters – Wingman Appendix IWB

By Alexander Castiglione Part of a good EDC (everyday carry), next to a good knife and pistol you are competent with, is a good holster to carry said pistol. I’ve been through my fair share to find the right one that didn’t print, was comfortable, and easy to access. I like the Crossbreed Freedom Carry... Read More

Gear Review: Ontario SP-8 Survival Machete

The SP-8 from Ontario isn’t like any machete you’ve ever seen. It’s a monster. And it chews through brush and thickets like a monster who is only hungry for brambles, saplings, and a clear path in the bush. This behemoth has a 10 inch straight blade, and tips the scales at over 22 ounces. It’s... Read More

Luminox Evo Navy SEAL Blackout Men’s Watch Review Model 3051

We had heard the word that Navy SEALs used the Luminox watch—so we purchased one to review and put to the test. It has been 3 months of testing in the field and it has not broken yet. I picked up the watch for $189 on Amazon. REVIEW I’m not sure I don’t like it,... Read More

Gear Review: Werkz M2 IWB Holster for G26

I recently got the chance to check out another Werkz holster – the M2. This one is for my trusty and oh-so-compact G26. It’s kind of hard to find a good holster for such a small CCW. They’re either inaccesibly low riding, or they print as much as a full size – so what’s the... Read More

Gear Review: TimTam Recovery Power Massager

By Alexander Castiglione The fitness world is full of gimmicks. And in local news, water is wet. But I assume if you’re reading this, you’re not about the gimmicks. You’re not about the “8 minutes a day” shenanigans. And you’re definitely aware that there is no pill for physical excellence – just good old-fashioned hard... Read More
