    my survive! knives collection is growing - probably the most knives from a single brand i have except for mora. i recently picked up a 3v 4.7 (backup to my cru forge v) and a factory second d3v 4.1 (backup to my orange d3v 4.1).

    their factory second should not be a factory 2nd! it's flawless except for some barely noticeable scuff mark or two on the spine on the handle...baton it through oak once or twice and that's the kind of scuff mark we're talking about.

    esee cm-6 with the tkc orange g10 handle...i'm super picky when it comes to knives so i've just been buying duplicates of my favorites lately.

    [​IMG]


    these cutting boards are impressively beefy - the big one is 1/2" thick...and it doesn't have those annoying "features" like the juice/blood groove and grab handle.

    the old hickory butcher's knife (middle one) will be a project knife - i'll probably mod it into a kephart.

    kifaru cargo net and pack cover for my zxr.

    [​IMG]


    svord general outdoors knife...their machete is one of my favorites but for some reason that handle doesn't quite work for me in this size knife so it'll probably be relegated to a loaner/beater knife.

    ...and my best recent purchase so far - orange eneloop! :D

    box o' goodies from kifaru :D finally, the two things i've been waiting for kifaru to make for years...lost park parka full zip and the hood is non-removable which is a must for me.

    [​IMG]


    my favorite feature over my patagonia down jackets is the kangaroo pouch inside the side pockets - i can put a flashlight or something in there and no risk of falling out.

    [​IMG]


    aegis tarp...finally, a flat 10' x 10'.

    [​IMG]


    5 string stuff sack.

    [​IMG]


    the rest are impulse buy - their site is dangerous to my wallet :oops:

    [​IMG]


    climashield apex insulation woobie and doobie...the older ones had climashield combat insulation. the new insulation is supposed to be warmer for the same weight.

    [​IMG]


    new vs. old woobie...and they're putting more insulation now too. i don't have my old doobie anymore (got rid of it because the multicam side felt weird against my skin) to compare the size.

    it's time to refresh my med supplies again...probably the only gear that makes me happy to see not used :)

    leatherman raptor.

    [​IMG]


    countycomm compact trauma shears.

    [​IMG]


    the two on top is a syringe filled with celox and loose celox refill. i bought it for me just in case since i don't think i can actually stuff gauze in my own gun shot hole with my fingers without passing out. bottom three are celox-infused gauze.

    [​IMG]


    h&h compression and 6" israeli bandages...the israeli t3 is on backorder.

    [​IMG]


    chest seals.

    [​IMG]


    plain compressed gauze and frog tape.

    [​IMG]


    decompression needle and airway tube.

    redoing my med pouches away from kifaru pullouts...my new system is brown = tactical = trauma kit and red = boo boo kit only.

    chinookmed ifak and tourniquet pouches...i'm liking this one a lot too...it can fit almost as much as the blue force gear trauma kit now! pouch but in a more compact package.

    [​IMG]


    same dimensions as a 32 oz nalgene.

    [​IMG]


    orca tactical and voodoo tactical pouches...these are sub $20 each but i'm surprised it's high quality.

    [​IMG]


    molle back rip-away panel.

    [​IMG]


    for the curious, my bfg tkn! pouch's contents:
    section a: celox syringe and refill, hyfin compact chest seals, decompression needle, airway tube, gloves, shears, and frog tape.
    section b: 6" israeli bandage, packet of iodine, non-stick gauze.
    section c: regular compressed gauze, celox-infused gauze, and gauze sponges.

    chinookmed ifak pouch's contents:

    aimpoint p.r.o.

    [​IMG]


    larue lt104 mount for the aimpoint.

    [​IMG]


    bonus feature is there's a spare battery compartment underneath.

    [​IMG]


    troy tritium sights and surefire x300u - now up to 1,000 lumens...definitely a noticeable difference from my 600 lumens that are on my pistols.

    [​IMG]


    took awhile but my all-bcm build is now complete :D

    Don't think I have posted my new knives on this thread yet. This finger knife from J.J. Todd is a light, laser in AEB-L steel. Slide the belt through the cords or put it in a pocket, and I forget I have it. Takes a sticky sharp edge.[​IMG]

    The two wrapped handle Tendick fixed blades and the Tideoute (GEC) whaler.

    This 14 inch bladed butcher knife and the neck knife are new too.

    I also just got 4 BearButt hammocks, but have not gotten a hammock stand yet to try them out!!

    I went to the Blade Show West in Portland last month, met and made friends with the sales manager for Industrial Revolution, exclusive Canadian and US distributor for Morakniv, and with a provided discount code, picked up some seriously discounted gear through their https://www.industrialrev.com/ website.

    Got to hang out with outdoorsman Dave Canterbury too. It was a blast. :thumbsup:

    spartan armor systems ar550 level iii+ 10"x12" with the triple curve and full coat.

    [​IMG]

    ar650 level iii+ 10"x13" backpack insert.

    [​IMG]


    the backpack insert still fits inside the goruck bullet 10l with the chinook medical ifak...i'll probably enclose the insert with some kind of cardboard sleeve or foam to raise it to a proper location on my torso.

    goruck rucker...testing one as a day hike pack and the other for work edc and see if it'll replace my gossamer gear minimalist and tad gear litespeed.

    [​IMG]


    i didn't know that the rucker already came with a bottom handle...i was going to send it in to scars for them to add it.

    [​IMG]


    the spartan armor's 10"x13" plate fits perfectly inside the sleeve.
