G19 Gen 3
Our 2¢: When you think of multi-tools, its likely that Leatherman instantly comes to mind. Now available in seven different colors, The Signal is designed specifically for the outdoors enthusiasts, but you’ll find it useful for everyday carry tasks as well. It measures a compact 4.5 inches in length and includes a nylon sheath plus a carabineer for convenient carry options. With 19 different tools including a ferro rod, 420HC combo blade, hammer and bit driver, The Signal will serve you well in just about any situation.
Our 2¢: Despite it’s easy to carry size, this pocket flashlight boasts a powerful 1600 Lumens in its high-powered Turbo mode. The E30R offers five other output modes for different lighting needs and for prolonged battery life. It features a four-level battery indicator, rechargeable Li-ion battery, lock out function to prevent accidental operation, a magnetic charging cable and a host of other features. This durable flashlight is lightweight, corrosion resistant and rated IP68 for water resistance (30 mininutes in up to 1.5 meters of freshwater).
Primary Weapons Systems
Bottle Opener Keychain
Our 2¢: PWS shrunk down their popular MOD 2-M Diablo and turned it into a highly-detailed keychain. One look and its understandable that this is one of PWS’ most popular swag items. The keychain not only keeps keys organized; it also doubles as a bottle opener too. This surefire conversation starter is sure to turn heads wherever you go.
MSRP: $30 (Original 2.0)
Wazoo Survival Gear
Bushcraft Fire Starter Necklace
Our 2¢: Handcrafted in Texas, this high-quality necklace not only looks great, it is a practical addition to your everyday carry kit. The adjustable leather lace is strung with both a ferrocerium rod and ceramic striker so you’ll always have the capability to start a fire, which is one of the priorities in most survival situations.
Our 2¢: Never worry about your BIC lighter getting wet or lost again when it’s secured in the Exotac fireSLEEVE. This case is waterproof to a depth of 3 feet for up to 30 minutes and features a Gas Lock that allows it to stay lit without having to depress the gas button continuously. It also has attachment points on the body and cap allowing you to secure the lighter to your person or pack.
Zero Tolerance Knives
Our 2¢: Zero Tolerance’s 0350 is an excellent choice for an everyday carry folding knife. Due to its compact size, it weighs less than some of ZT’s larger models and we found it to be a great size for everyday cutting tasks. It features a CPM S30V stainless steel blade that is strong, durable, and corrosion resistant. Other notable features include textured black G10 scales, a strong reliable liner lock, 4-way pocket clip mounting, lanyard hole and assisted opening that’s both smooth and fast.
