RailScales KeyMod Grip Panels

When KeyMod first made the move from industrial shelving to the firearms world, I’ll admit I was pretty excited.  I don’t like excess weight of unused 1913 rail space, so much so that I went to the modular style of rails back when the only options on the market cost three or four times what […]

Tactical Tailor Urban Operator Pack

Tactical Tailor Urban Operator Pack

A while back I was in the market for a new EDC/laptop pack. I couldn’t stand using the typical Dell laptop case my company supplied so I began the search for a better solution. I work in a corporate environment as a graphic designer so my new pack could not be overtly tactical or covered […]

RAVPower Deluxe 14000 mAh External Battery

Electronics have become, for better or worse, a way of life for most people. Between cell phones, tablets, laptops and other portable devices, our dependence on electronics has never been greater.

HSGI AO Small Chest Rig

My first experience with High Speed Gear products was more than a few years ago when looking for a high quality, open-top magazine pouch that would support an AK profile magazine in 7.62×39.  At the time, the market only supported a few that I found and none of them could be described as high quality.  […]

UF Pro P-40 Classic pants

UF PRO P-40 Classic Pants

UF PRO is a Slovenian company that makes clothing primarily for military and police markets, and seems to be not very well-known here in the US. This is unfortunate because UF PRO makes some really good apparel. UF PRO gear is mostly “tactical” in design, and the P-40 Classic pants reviewed here are no exception. For several months […]

Liion Defense OWB Holster

There’s no shortage of Kydex holsters on the market right now, and in my opinion, that’s a good thing. There are a lot of great Kydex shops to choose from, and today I want to tell you about one that I recently discovered called Liion Defense.
