ORSM – NEMO Equipment Cloudview Hammock

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Hammocks are all the rage but these days you’re either getting a lightweight fabric hammock that swallows you as soon as you get in or a large net hammock that you’d find in grandma’s backyard. NEMO set about to make something in between.

Right from the get go, you’ll notice the design. It’s got a deep foot pocket so that when you get in, your feet don’t end up higher than your head. Additionally, the material won’t absorb water and the hammock comes with spreader bars to keep its shape. It’s topped off with an iPad pocket and beverage holder.

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

MMA 1901 and MMA 1501

The Axe
After two years of intense development and testing, Outland Equipment unveiled its first multi-purpose tools: the Point Man Axe, the FireFighter Axe and the Multi-Mission Axe. The PMA is a specialized combat instrument for LE and Special Operations Forces, built to hold an edge and withstand the rigors of battle. The FFA and MMA are forcible entry tools, with optimized materials and features for cutting and prying through just about anything in your path. The FFA and MMA have unique engineering that allows for interchangeability in the axe head. A range of different components are being developed now that will be able to mount on the back side of the axe head. Outland is committed to setting a new standard of quality and innovation in tools for combat, rescue and survival. The MMA tools are currently in stock.

–Top, on the forward angled grip, for fine manipulation of the blade and an off-axis grip for controlling the pry and seatbelt cutter

The Connection
I was introduced to Outland Equipment’s axes by Cam Brensinger, of NEMO Equipment. I’ve known Cam for several years and he has always impressed me by his innovation and dedication to quality. I know the standard he sets for himself so when he decides to present another brand alongside NEMO I know it is going to be something special. I asked him about how this had taken place and he said this:

“We were introduced to Outland through our connections in the industry,” said Cam Brensinger, NEMO’s founder and CEO, “and I was immediately struck by the design of these tools. The quality of execution is the best I’ve seen. I felt a partnership with Outland would give us another strong solution to offer our customers alongside our own Shield™ products, and it would give Outland the connections they need to increase visibility in the SOF community.” NEMO has agreed to be the exclusive distributor of Outland products to U.S. Special Operations. If you’re an active duty member of SOF, please contact NEMO for best pricing: journey@nemoequipment.com

The Maker
Now that we have established the bonafides, let’s talk about Outland Equipment. Outland Equipment was founded by Christopher Aiston to provide people with the tools they need to survive and save lives in hostile environments. For the past 10 years, Chris has been a design consultant to companies that manufacture firearms and accessories. He built relationships in the law enforcement and fire fighting communities and discovered that firefighters are typically heavily burdened by carrying around single-purpose tools. It was clear that firefighters needed a streamlined, lightweight, multi-purpose tool that could be carried at all times. This new solution would need to withstand the harsh environments firefighters work in, and prove to be useful every day on the job, across a wide range of applications. Once development began on the tools, it quickly became apparent that these new tools could also benefit law enforcement and armed forces. That’s where the military focus came into play. Cam at NEMO saw the designs and new that they would be a perfect fit for the SOF community.
