She asked. We delivered. Tacticool, not tactical. Floperator–for women. Built to the Combat Flip Flops standard, the land, sea, and air compatible flips ensure you follow the SOF mantra, “Slow is Smooth. Smooth is Fast.” Standard, “Bad for Running. Worse for Fighting” patches. But we know you’re going to do what you want with them anyway. You’re a Lady Floperator.

Gerber Introduces New Fishing Collection Built For The Adventure Angler

Monday, July 31st, 2017

We recently had a chance to check out this new fishing line of tools from Gerber during last week’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. We already showed you one product. Now, here’s an overview of the whole line.

PORTLAND, OREGON – GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of personal knives, multi-tools, and gear, announced today that it will debut a category-defining collection of fishing products at iCAST 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The first look comes ahead of the spring 2018 launch date, when the collection becomes available for purchase nationwide.
For a new breed of fishing, a new generation of tools. Hardcore anglers need tools that work even harder. Tools that take them beyond the beaten path, beyond self-imposed limits, beyond anything and everything that stands in their way. Gerber introduces a new line of multi-functional fishing products that outfit the angler from the trek in, to the catch, to the victorious journey home. These tools are purpose-built for the adventure to extend the experience anywhere and everywhere the angler dares to tread.

“Gerber is known for reimagining the common tool and delivering intuitive, multi-functional gear.” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, Vice President of Marketing at Gerber. “This new collection of fishing products is rooted in Gerber’s extensive experience developing problem-solving products for users in expeditionary environments – from US Soldiers in Afghanistan to Elk Hunters in Montana. This new fishing collection will serve the experienced angler by providing intelligent design, insightful material combinations, and progressive new technologies that will enable them to venture farther and fish beyond.”

The new collection features 12 multi-functional tools that are painstakingly designed and tested, because if it’s taking up space in a kayak, on an ATV, or inside a vest, it better be worth it. Do more and go farther while taking up less space – explore a few leading products.

Keep the line in the water. The compact, dual-ended LineDriver has everything needed to simplify line management: one end rotates to quickly tie knots and clear eyelets, the other end features a crimper, hook threader, and scissor snips. A pocket clip and tether point keep the tool secured for easy access. 

MAGNIPLIERS 7.5” Pliers


Get a grip on the unexpected. Swift power is on hand with the durable, hot-forged Magnipliers. The ergonomic trigger grip is offset to keep line of sight in tight places, while the finger choil offers maximum control. The thumb lock and ambidextrous tether points ensure safe stowage and transport while on the move. [Pictured on the Defender Tether.]

NEMO Equipment Celebrates 15th Anniversary With Wooden Spoon Shaper Kit

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

First off, it’s hard to believe that NEMO Equipment has been around for 15 years. Man, has that time flown. Congratulations to NEMO Equipment and in particular to their founder, Cam Brensinger. Everytime I talk to him I learn something new, but one thing that has never come up, is his love of carving. I found out about that when NEMO released their 15th Anniversary Spoon Shaper Kit. Cam assembled these kits in order to help others pick up his hobby.

It consists of a straight blade knife, a hook knife, a folding saw, a leather strop mounted on bamboo, handmade by Cam, and a pencil and sandpaper, all nestled in a custom waxed canvas tool roll. All you need is a piece of wood and a lazy afternoon.

Friday, February 10th, 2017

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – February 9, 2017 – Fort Bragg and Fayetteville, NC will host the fourth annual All-American Marathon and “Mike-to-Mike” Half Marathon, on March 26th, 2017. Alongside these two popular races, the All-American Family 5K will also be offered. Each course has been certified by the USA Track and Field Association and the marathon portion is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.

On race day, members of the military, wounded warriors, and runners from around the United States will begin their race near the Airborne Trooper Statue “Iron Mike” at the Airborne & Special Operations Museum. They will then pass through many scenic areas in the community before heading to Fort Bragg, where they run by the Iron Mike statue at the entrance to Fort Bragg.

Each run will be lined with flag-bearing spectators cheering on the runners. The Wear Blue Mile, which honors fallen service members, is noted as one of the most moving components of the race. The Wear Blue tributes will include “Faces of the Fallen” posters which will line the course as well as volunteers holding American Flags adorned with a streamer bearing the name of a fallen service member.
