Stuff I Like – Humangear GoTubb

Thursday, September 17th, 2020

I am a subscriber to Cairn’s monthly subscription box of outdoor gear. Sure, some months I get the package and go, “WTF am I going to do with this?” and pass it off to one of my kids. But that’s generally because I already have something that does whatever that widget is supposed to do. But in August I got something I’d never think to buy for myself, and after having used it on two trips, I’m sold.

The GoTubb by Humangear is great for transporting medication. Cairns sent the GoTubb 3-Pack (Small), the perfect size for short trips. I have used them for supplements and medication. These small containers are self sealing with a slight push but pop right open with a squeeze. They are Food-safe (FDA) and 100% BPA-free, PC-free, and phthalate-free.

GoTubbs are offered in a variety of colors and sizes.

Small – .50 oz. (15ml)
Medium – 2.94 oz. (87ml)
Large – 5.75 oz (170ml)

Thyrm Introduces the CellVault-18

Monday, September 14th, 2020

Sunnyvale, CA — Not long ago, the best tactical lights were fueled by CR123 batteries. We were all generally happy with 600 lumens and an extra budget line item for disposable cells. But in the last couple years that has changed completely. Enter the latest 18650 and 18350 rechargeable batteries, generating huge lumen and candela numbers in SureFire, Modlite, & Streamlight flashlights. To keep up with these lights, Thyrm has developed a next-generation CellVault that can protect 18-series spare batteries while keeping them immediately accessible.

From Andrew Frazier, CEO of Thyrm: “The new CellVault-18 includes features we know our customers are going to love, like side windows that help them verify gear status, a metal locking latch, and fully waterproof double-layer construction. We’re really proud of how the design came together and can’t wait to get them in the hands of first-responders and outdoor enthusiasts alike.”

• Holds One 18650 or Two 18350 Rechargeable Batteries
• Waterproof O-ring seal rated to IPX8 at 2 meters for 30+ minutes
• Folding metal latch for simple installation and positive attachment
• Silicone foam shock absorber/noise silencer
• Clear side windows allow for gear status checks
• Slim profile: less than 1 MOLLE/PALS column wide for easy integration into existing gear configurations.
• Designed and manufactured in the USA

PHLster x AXL Advanced Ascent Pouch Line

Tuesday, August 25th, 2020

PHLster has teamed up with the innovative materials experts at AXL Advanced, known for their high-tech, functional, and creative upgrades for Crye, Spiritus, and First Spear equipment, to bring new technology and capability to concealed carry.

The first in a series of upcoming 2020 collaborations, the Ascent pouches solve a number of problems with existing magazine carriers.

Conventional elastic pouches are universal, comfortable and slim, but re-inserting magazines can be tricky. Rigid pouches can be uncomfortable or bulky and might not fit many different magazines.

By using an ultra high-strength flexible polymer textile, the Ascent pouches provide enough structure to maintain their shape, while being as slim, comfortable, and versatile as an elastic pouch. Elastic portions of the pouch provide enough give and tension to accommodate a wide variety of double and single stack pistol mags, while the thin polymer exoskeleton reinforces the pouch and provides unique rigid mounting points for a variety of hardware.

This allows us to produce a versatile, thin, featherweight elastic pouch which can accept both Discreet Carry Concepts clips and our unique OWB belt slide panels.

Available in rifle and pistol sizes, each pouch includes a DCC clip (Mod4 for pistol and MonoBlock for rifle), and the necessary hardware to mount either the clip or the included OWB belt slide panel. The Pistol magazine OWB belt slide panel provides two options for belt threading, to accommodate larger or smaller magazines as necessary.

To carry OWB, install the panel on the face of the carrier, selecting your desired carry angle using one of the three adjustment holes, and thread your belt through the slot and behind the magazine. This results in one of the most body-hugging, stable, snag-resistant, and low profile OWB magazine pouches available.

The elastic versatility allows the pouches to be used with other necessary items like flashlights, multitools, and tourniquets.

The Ascent pouches are fully compatible with the PHLster Flex system.

Whatever your application, the Ascent pouches provide the lowest visibility option for OWB carry, and a slim, comfortable, versatile solution for IWB concealment with unmatched features and performance.
