Kickstarter – Final Day For Amabilis Dave Jr Duffle 2.0

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Billed as the world’s toughest EDC bag, the Dave Jr Duffle 2.0 is in its final day on Kickstarter. Created by Amabilis, it’s a well constructed bag, but it’s also named after a friend who passed away severl years ago, Dave Ruiz. Dave and his business partner Brain Abrams founded 782 Gear, so the Dave Jr’s design may look familiar. Brian went on to create Amabilis after Dave passed away and he has taken their work to the next level.

They are really close to 700 backers pledging $100k for more than 700 bags! That’s pretty impressive.

About Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F):
The Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, 100% volunteer, charitable organization that generates funds for the families of wounded or killed Special Operations Forces (SOF).

Our mission is to “fill in the gaps” of the care of the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community. We raise money via events and unique engagements; linking donors, industry, and SOF end users together. Funds generated from the events support Brain Injury Treatment not covered by Tri-care or the VA, SOF Gold Star Kids Camps, SOF Marriage counseling, and emergency needs as they arise. Once we have covered out internally funded initiatives, we donate like-run charitable organizations that support the Special Operations Community.

We are average American’s who care deeply about the Special Operations Community, and we created SOC-F to make a difference in the lives of the families of those who have given so much.

About American Defense MFG:
American Defense Manufacturing LLC was founded with an idea and a lot of hard work. What followed was the QD Auto-lock that has become the standard for QD mounting hardware. All ADM products are 100% designed and built in America.

All of our products are designed by shooters with one goal in mind – quality.

Moving forward, we have evolved into a premier manufacturer of AR-15’s that we consider “The Gentleman’s Work Gun.” With a high level of attention to detail, an eye for style, but a demand for performance, our UIC line of rifles are serious tools, for serious people.

About Deadbird Society:
Deadbird Society began in 2014 as a place for a few friends to come together online to share a love of the outdoors, gear, and all things Arc’teryx. It has grown rapidly as more and more people join to share their passion for the brand and the lifestyle. In two short years, Deadbird Society is about to surpass 3,000 members and has grown amongst the online gear communities as the preeminent place to not only learn more about Arc’teryx, but also buy, sell, and trade gear amongst like-minded individuals. Many Arc’teryx employees, from retail stores to corporate (both commercial and LEAF), have become members and often share product knowledge and insight, as well as offer a peek behind the curtain at upcoming product lines.

Deadbird Society is also deeply involved with Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F), and for the past two years has actively participated with various fundraising projects (patches, shirts, challenge coins, raffles, and auctions) to donate directly to SOC-F and support the families of our special operations community. DBS has partnered with Arc’teryx and numerous other companies to raffle and auction items… but more importantly, raise awareness for SOC-F and the work they do.

Kickstarter – TAPS

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

TAPS is a pretty cool idea. It’s is a touchscreen sticker for your handwear, but it incorporates a unique fingerprint for touch ID. TAPS are formulated to stick and stay on almost any surface and guaranteed to work on all touchscreen devices. It’s a simple idea, but offers interesting applications for those who wear gloves all of the time.

Kickstarter – Last Flight Of The Vulcan

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

As a kid the RAF Vulcan was my favorite bomber. Probably because of its huge batlike structure, but also because I got to check out the cockpit on quite a few occasions because my dad’s wing would deploy to RAF Waddington regularly and they’d send a Vulcan across to our annual airshow so he knew many of their maintainers.

Fans of the Vulcan know that the type made its last flight just over a year ago with airframe XH558. Artist Nick Harrison commemorates the event with this Kickstarter campaign. It’s a great looking print.
