    I have a Ka-Bar knife with the Kydex sheath, 7" blade. I picked up a Ka-Bar MOLLE adapter and tested it out over the weekend, wearing it on my USGI ALICE LBE while doing yard work. The adapter works as advertised, but the knife rides higher than I would like. In use, drawing it and placing it...

    I've been considering a combination bob/inch bag setup for awhile and have pretty much been debating best of both worlds with the hellcat mod. As with everyone, which frame alice or molle pros and cons etc. I'm not overly sold on the 4th gen molle or the 1606ac frames by dei. Some have had...

    I recently purchased a Medium LC-1 olivedrab ALICE pack. I was drawn to this bag for its utilitariansim and durability. I have had fun with the bag so far, and it will primarily be a go bag, but I plan on using it for camping and hunting as well. I've seen alot of mods out there improving upon...

    Ever since I traded my CFP90 pack for a BLACKHAWK SOF ruck, the more I use it, the more I like it. Aside from the pack itself, I got the shelf and been using it to haul heavy items like firewood, 5 gallon water canisters, feed bags, etc. into/through places I would have trouble otherwise with...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I found a 3pc E.C.W.S. sleeping bag set for a price that I cannot pass up. This particular one says "created especially for civilian use--imported". Are all genuine ecws sleeping bags made in America? If this one is a knock-off, what drawbacks will it have compared to the real military ones...

    I'm designing a new backpack frame that will easily work with ALICE packs. is there a need? A frame that transfers the weight of the pack to a waist belt? A frame that fits taller and shorter people? A lighter weight frame? Inexpensive? What else is important? Thanks for the feedback...

    So currently I have a Camelbak 2500 cubic inch backpack in camo that I have been using for a BOB. I made this purchase years back before I became a prepper, and its original purpose was for hunting/hiking. This is an excellent backpack and has held up well. However it has only one row of...
