I don’t have one of these in hand to review, but stumbled across someone that did recently and had to post a link. T.A.D. Gear is one of those companies that has more than customers, they have fans. And it’s that way for a reason – they make GREAT products.

Check this little bugger out.

Another day, another watch… This time, I thought I would review one of my latest – The LUM-TECH Combat B1. The B1 is a military inspired piece with a 17-jewel mechanical movement. It features a bead blasted PVD case that measures 43mm excluding the crown and the absolutely incredible LUM-TECH SuperLum. It’s built like I like my watches to be built – like a tank.

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.

I was.

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?

Looking for a seriously heavy duty work belt? I wasn’t, but I stumbled upon a belt that Chute43 was offering and just dug the way it looked. I dropped him a line, sent him some cash via paypal, and received my “Smokejumper” belt just a few days later.

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.

Here’s a quick little video review on the ever-popular Boker SUBCOM knife. These little buggers are available in a number of different colors, finishes, and blade styles and are priced at under $40 in most cases. I don’t know the folks over at knivesplus.com at all, but you certainly can’t argue with their prices… It might be worth giving them a shot.

In any case, enjoy the review:
