Gear Review: 5ive Star Gear 3 Day GI Pack

Ah, we love our packs here at SGPT. How are you going to do all that rucking with a garbage pack, right? Well 5ive Star Gear GI Spec 3-Day Military Backpack is solid for heavier loadouts, camping trips, or a bug out bag. I tested this bad boy out over a couple hikes, and it help... Read More

Gear Review: CRKT Keramin and Minimalist Fixed Blade Knives

I went on the search for a new fixed blade EDC after thinking of the need for something a little more low profile, yet easily deployable from the weak side. I have a SOG Gambit, and a SOG Mini Pentagon I really like, but wanted to check something out that was a bit lower profile... Read More

Gear Review: Snake Eater Tactical IWB Pouches

We love our gear, but you all know this. We love interesting ways for us to carry and use our gear, be it plainclothes or in the field. And what we love more than just gear, is gear made in America, by veterans. Snake Eater Tactical has all of those. Chris Calvert is the brains... Read More

Gear Review: SOG Pent Arc Folding Knife

Up for review today is another SOG folder, however, this one is unlike others we have reviewed in the past. This solid little blade is not a spring assisted folder like the SOG Zoom S30V, but is ready for action all the same. The SOG Pent Arc uses their Arc Lock System, which is both... Read More

Gear Review: SOG Force Tactical Knife

The SOG Force Fixed Blade SE38-N knife is a formidable knife. With a blade thickness of .24 inches, it is hefty. In fact, it reminds me of the Ontario knives and machetes I have, but sports a super sharp AUS-8 blade. I really like thisknife, and it’s found a home on one of my tac... Read More

Gear Review: SOG Tomahawk

We’re big fans of SOG gear, as you may know from reading our gear reviews. Anything that was borne in the jungles of Vietnam for Special Operators has a pretty solid lineage, and their gear, by and large, is solid. The SOG Tactical Tomahawk definitely serves it’s purpose, but in our opinion isn’t as versatile... Read More

Gear Review: TRUSPEC 24/7 Xpedition Pants

Do you wear long pants during a long ruck hike in bad weather? What pants do you like to put on when its still cool outside and a chance or light rain? Or you are hiking out in the field and need an extra layer of protection so you dont get all scratched up. Maybe... Read More

Gear Review: PxHero JAFO II Trauma Kit

Up for review we have an IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit) by PxHero. Overall it’s a fine kit, and great as a back-up for your car, or in your go-bag. It has some great qualities, and is much more comprehensive than other companies on the market, especially with the price point of about $70 with... Read More

Gear Review: K9 Collar and Lead by Wilcox Tactical

Collars and dog leads are just that right – just collars and dog leads? Wrong, they’re gear. Just like your carrier or holster, or EDC belt, they’re pieces of kit. Now I do a lot of hiking and running with my dogs. At least once a week we’re in the mountains, whether it’s the whole... Read More

Gear Review: GPM Kit – Combat Application Belt, Outdoor Application Belt

We love gear. Gear that works, we adore. And both the Combat Application Belt, and Outdoor Application Belt – work. They are tested on the front lines, not in some laboratory, and they are US made by a veteran of the USMC and Navy. Patrick Moltrup started his military career in the Marine Corps, got... Read More

Gear Reviews: Readyman Escape Cards

We’re big on having a comprehensive EveryDay Carry (EDC) here. Anything that can give you the edge, make you ready for anything. A pistol and a knife are great, but what about an IFAK (individual first aid kit)? Light? Multitool? How about an escape and evasion course of action? Survival Kit? Well those last two,... Read More
