Re: Paracord Bracelets

I’ve made many paracord bracelets. They are extremely easy to make, just a little harder to size correctly.

Best 72 hour tactical pack?

Hey guys, I’ve been looking around for some time now for a 72 hour tactical pack that is as rugged and durable as my 5.11 Rush 12. I know that there is the 72 hour pack in the Rush range from 5.11 but I’m wanting something that is a little more tactical you could say. I have no issues with the 5.11 ...

Re: clansman radios

Out of curiosity, because i am wanting a long lasting, robust portable radio, where can you buy these items that are fully functional?. i know they have smaller hand held variants as i have used them when i was in the army but have never been able to find anywhere to buy them?!.
