Stuff I Like – The Barracks Buddy from Atlas 46

Monday, July 13th, 2015

The patented Barracks Buddy was one of the first products developed by John Carver under his 5 Seas Engineering and Trading brand. We are smack dab in the middle of summer camping as well as Annual Training season on the reserve components side. The Barracks Buddy is a great accessory for keeping gear handy when you are staying in tents or barracks with bunks. Because it can be hung vertically or horizontally, I’ve even used it to line dry swimming trunks and towels. Crafted from 50″ long x 2″ wide webbing with a full length 550 cord tacked along the length to allow you to attach gear but the coolest part is the disc-style hook buckle which weaves into the 550 and can be nailed or screwed into a wall for permanent installations.

Features and Benefits
– Four hook set up to hang anything from clothes to bags to boots
– Loop hangers allow for variety of hanging options: on hooks, over rods, etc.
– Lower loop can be used to adjust the overall hanging length
– 2″ Mil-Spec nylon construction with reinforced stitching
– Hand crafted in the USA

The Barracks Buddy is available now in Black and Coyote from Atlas 46. made in USA and comes with storage bag.


The Atlas 46 Tool Roll

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

John Carver started the legendary Eagle Industries during the 1980s. A few years back he sold it and went into “retirement”. No sooner than he started odd jobs around his ranch did he realize that he could build a better tool belt. That’s when Atlas 46 was born and since then he has created quite a few items. Just the other day he sent these photos of a new Tool Roll.


Four zippered pockets to keep everything organized and a newly added carrying handle on the latest prototype.

This is teh load of tools in the roll.


Made in USA.
