Gear Review: TruSpec Stealth Backpack

I was on the hunt for a pack that looked less tactical and more discreet, yet still held the gear I needed day to day or in an urban environment. I checked out the TruSpec Stealth Backpack. I was looking for something that meshed form and function. I didn’t want the MOLLE webbing adorned packs... Read More

Gear Review: Bravo Concealment G43 Torsion Holster

Holsters are like shooting stances or training protocols—everyone has a favorite, and everyone swears by them. There are many fans of Bravo Concealment holsters, and after checking out their Torsion line, I can easily see why. This particular one tested  – the Bravo Concealment Torsion or DOS holster – is meant for the Glock 43... Read More

Gear Review: CRKT Rasp

We’ve reviewed a bunch of CRKT products, and a couple that were designed by retired Sgt Maj Darren Sirois out of North Carolina – like the CRKT Sangrador. And like the Sangrador – his new folder the RASP is all business. This particular folder is elegant in its spartan look and simplicity. Stout and ready to... Read More

Gear Review: Kineti Tech G43 Drop In Trigger

Glocks are pervasive everywhere you look in the firearms community. Maybe it’s their slogan of “Perfection,” maybe it’s their 30 year history, or their borderline boring reliability. We can debate that, but one thing is also certain: people modify them to a great extend to make them “perfection” for their own needs – be it... Read More

Gear Review: Inforce APLc

If you have a carry weapon, it should probably have a light. And by probably, I mean definitely. As most of our readers know, we mostly carry Glocks, but you can carry whatever you like. As long as you’re competent and accurate with it, it’s a good option for you. However, if you carry a... Read More

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

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. If you click on any link we may get a commission from which helps keep gas in the truck and the lights turned on. So if you want... Read More
