ORSM 22 – US Camo Corps

Tuesday, June 21st, 2022

With a name like US Camo Corps you’d think this company has something different going on than offering German made “shammies” and sponges. They offer several models which can be reused, pick up water even when wet, and dry quickly.

ORSM 22 – Bridgford

Tuesday, June 21st, 2022

I’m a big fan of Bridgford’s shelf-stable, ready-to-eat sandwiches which are found in US military rations. One of their latest additions to their commercial offerings is the whole wheat fig bar.

If you like fig newtons, you’ll love these.

BearVault Launches Two Smaller Bear Canisters

Friday, June 17th, 2022

Louisville, Colorado – BearVault, the leading outdoor brand in portable bear canisters, today unveiled two smaller bear canisters, the BV425 Sprint and the BV475 Trek. The BearVault product line now has four sizes, allowing backpackers to make efficient packing choices for any length of trip or size of group. 

Since BearVault’s classic bear canisters first hit the trails in 2004, backpacks have become more compact, while access to dehydrated food options has improved hikers’ food packing efficiency. Demand for smaller canister options has grown even stronger with the recent boom in outdoor participation, a wider diversity of users, and a broader range of adventures.

“We are excited to now offer a full suite of bear canister sizes for every hiker, every trip, and for the sake of every bear,” said Tracy Twist, BearVault’s president. “With four perfect fit options to choose from, it is easier than ever to safely store food away from bears and wildlife.” 

The new models passed the official Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) grizzly bear testing standards in May of 2022. Made in the USA of specialty polycarbonate and other durable resins, they will be available to ship by mid June. 

New model details:

BV425 Sprint (MSRP $73.50): 1.3 Gal capacity, weighing 1.75 lb, standing 6” tall. The smallest in the BearVault family of canisters, the BV425 Sprint is designed for overnight trips, for youth or smaller backpackers, and for groups who share the food load among all hikers. This compact model also solves the food storage quandary for day trippers who leave their lunch at a base while enjoying nature – fishing, hunting, or climbing. 

BV475 Trek (MSRP $86.95): 2.5 Gal capacity, weighing 2.3 lb, standing 10.5” tall. A mid size canister in between the classic BV450 and BV500 sizes, the BV475 Trek is well suited to families or groups, a couple backpacking for a few days, or to long distance hikers who prioritize compact food storage and high volume to weight ratios.

ORSM 22 – Adidas Five Ten

Thursday, June 16th, 2022

I have been a huge fan of Five Ten for years. It’s good to see that the brand is still alive under Adidas but I wish they’d go back to their roots and create some more outdoor styles beyond the biking styles they currently make.

However, some of these shoes can be used for other applications than intended like the Trailcross Mid Pro.

This non-waterproof, mid height boot can be used for maritime ops and incorporates D3O at the ankle to mitigate injuries.

Best of all, and features Five Ten’s famous stealth rubber sole compound?. Sticky, it will ensure you are surefooted on wet terrain.

ORSM 22 – Morakniv

Thursday, June 16th, 2022

I’m a fan of the Garberg from Morakniv which comes with their multi mount option.

It features a stainless blade with full-tang construction into a polymer barrel-shaped handle with soft friction grip. The blade also has a ground spine for use with a fire starter.

The sheath is PALS as well as belt compatible.
