BivyPack on Kickstarter

Friday, March 9th, 2018

BivyPack is billed on Kickstarter as the backpack that transforms into a bivy tent. On the upside, you’ve got both shelter and load carriage in one package. The opposite is that you’re always carting your shelter around.

The 40 liter pack section is manufactured from hex grid ripstop nylon. It is a flapped too loader with front packet as well as two side pockets and includes a carbon fiber frame along with shoulder, waist and chest straps.

The poles are integrated into the head section. Now, here’s another issue to consider. While the body is a laminate, the head section is noseeum mesh. In inclement weather this could be a real issue. Their solution is to place your coat over the head area when you need the extra protection. That’s one way to keep weight down, I guess. It’s only about one pound all told which isn’t bad.

While it’s innovative, a few design choices make it only applicable for a narrow set of circumstances.

James Yeager Wants You To Help Him Launch YeagerTUBE

Friday, December 15th, 2017

As many of you may know, James Yeager has been banned by YouTube. To be sure, Yeager is a controversial figure in the firearms business. Some consider his banning is a blow to free speech while others feel that he brought it on himself. Regardless, we have to acknowledge that YouTube and other major social media platforms have become central to modern communications. Not many alternatives exist. Yeager recognized this and has developed a plan to create his own video hosting platform which he initially called YeagerTUBE, noting, “I am looking to build a free speech oasis in a sea of left wing censorship.”

The project has been renamed LiberTV with the project described as “WE are going to build a place where our freedom loving culture can share photos, articles, videos and podcasts. A place that doesn’t muzzle the voices of freedom and that cherishes our heritage.”

To make it a reality, he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign.

Introducing the B•A•T TRIDENT: A Wildly Unique New Multitool LIVE On Kickstarter

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

Covert Products Group’s “Bring Anywhere Tool” has 12+ Functions in a Compact Size

Trident

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut – November 2, 2017 – In a market flooded with multitools and pocket gizmos, standing out from the crowd is no easy feat, especially on Kickstarter. With a unique shape and carry options, Covert Products Group’s new B.A.T. TRIDENT multitool moves the conversation of EDC tools in a totally new direction.

Inspired by the familiar silhouette of side-release buckles (as found on backpacks and bags), the B.A.T. TRIDENT expands on CPG’s “bring anywhere tool” concept that debuted on Kickstarter last year. The TRIDENT – which launched this week on Kickstarter – is engineered to contain 12+ useful functions in a compact, ergonomic and highly “carry-able” package. From daily utility to survival, the TRIDENT is designed to be carried (almost) anywhere, excel at a variety of tasks, and look good doing it.

“The perfect tool isn’t so perfect if you don’t have it with you,” explains the TRIDENT’s designer Thom O’Leary. “The TRIDENT is big enough to be useful, but small enough to carry just about anywhere, either visibly or covertly. Slip it onto a backpack strap, belt, keychain, or carry it in your pocket.”

The TRIDENT functions include:

· Phillips head screwdriver

· Razor edge

· Sharp piercing point

· Captured cutter

· Flat head screwdriver/pry tip

· Wire stripper

· Serrated fire rod scraper

· Saw edge

· Laser-etched 1” ruler

· Ergonomic bottle opener operated with the tool safely held in the sheath

· Fire starter rod (included) OR swap it out for an optional EmbriteTM glow pellet from TEC Accessories

· 3M SOLAS reflective sticker

· And the TRIDENT’s molded Kydex Sheath is designed to allow multiple attachment options for everyday carry

The TRIDENT is available now through December 1st on Kickstarter, with lowest prices available for early adopters. The TRIDENT will ship during or before March 2018.
