When I presented the brand spanking new gearjournal.com to a doctor pal of mine, he mentioned that he knew someone with a product worth reviewing. “A friend of mine is producing this super trick water bottle that not only houses all kinds of technological accomplishments, but is incredibly health conscious as well,” he said. A water bottle with tech and health features? I wasn’t sure what he meant, but contacted the company and had one sent out to me for review anyway.
This isn’t necessarily on-topic to the journal, but I ran into a guy last week with an incredibly inventive mind. It was one of those “small world” stories where he knew one of my pals and that sparked a conversation. Eventually that lead to the brand new Gear Journal and he popped this “WiseCracker” thing out of his pocket thinking I would be interested.
While the Gear Journal is mostly focused on the regular Joe and his EDC needs, we thought it might be interesting to hear from a professional. Rick is a captain on a New York police force. He’s survived an off-duty shoot out with a bad guy as well as 9-11. He’s been there, done that, and is prepared for it all. Lets take a look at his pocket dump, shall we?
This, my friends, is the Spyder II GX laser from WickedLasers.com. The Spyder II is a military grade laser featuring an aerospace aluminum body and the first every hand-held thermoelectric cooling system. It shoots a laser that is visible for hundreds of miles and is intense enough to light a match from more than a few feet away. Frankly, I don’t know why you would include such hardware in your every day carry pack, but if ya do – BE CAREFUL as this thing can blind.
Woah… What’s this? Atomic Industry is stepping out of the garage for a bit and bringing you a community dedicated to the love of the gadgets and the gear that make your life easier. Expect full reviews on the latest watches, knives, bags, and other “every day carry” goodies – both tactical and non-tactical.
So take your hat off, hang your coat, and stick around a while. You’ll be glad ya did.
