Speaking of pouches and what not… If you are into packs and setting them up, you need to check out Yomp Notes. Basically, it’s just a dude that takes this stuff really seriously (OCD level here), does a lot of experimenting and modding, and tries shit out so you don’t have to…

The Global Pouch

Read More

Of course… the day after I feature the CAP 2, another tech pouch is announced from another company that I’ve grow to really appreciate – Pioneer. They call theirs the “Global Pouch.” It looks to be somewhere around 2-liters as well, but is made out of the rad rip-stop material that Pioneer has become famous for…

This one is probably pretty great.

Civic Access Pouch 2L

Read More

My preferred tech pouch is the GoRuck Wire Dopp. That said, there are times when I need something a little bigger and have found that the Evergoods CAP is REALLY hard to beat. Hell, I even use it as a camera cube when traveling with a one body, one lens setup.

G5 Field Wallet

Read More

Pelican steps into the wallet game with their G5. Essentially, it’s waterproof, shockproof, and hack proof hard wallet that looks to take a lot of space in your pocket? I might need to get one of these in to check out and review.

I know nothing about these guys, but I really dig their vintage inspired designs combined mostly with Seiko movements…

A knife that is the right size to carry every day and doesn’t cost so much that when you lose it, it won’t break your heart. Perfect EDC folder…

The Ojai Jacket

Read More

So you need a wool jacket to battle the cold with layers? There is no better than the Ojai Jacket… and right now, its available for under $200 due to Cyber Monday. If I didn’t already have one, I’d buy one.

Instax Mini Evo

Read More

It’s crazy to me that Fujifilm keeps bringing new Instax cameras to the market. I mean, it’s cool as hell… But who shoots these things? Japan maybe?

In any case, I still prefer larger format and vintage Polaroids… but this thing is pretty neat.
