    I've seen the shard and it looks like a lot of function in a key chainable package. Schrade makes something similar, but I wonder if either is USA made.

    Who makes the ball caps for the US military? Obviously they work in huge volume and perhaps without a great deal of price competition, but perhaps they could provide "blanks".

    I dig Grey Ghost gear. Great alternative lightweight option compared to overbuilt/ heavy options the industry is saturated with

    If Guy wanted to go with a quality USA manufacturer then I would suggest a Hill People Gear collaboration.

    I have a friend that owns Vanquest a backpacks, sling bags and other nylon. They make some great products. I can put u in touch with them if that Intrests you. The bags are not US made how ever the Company is in the US and uses the best quality components. They are willing and have done collaborations, example - Wilson Combat.

    Yes! I've owned the Tarahumara and the Umlindi and they're both great. I should've never sold the Umlindi but I was on the search for the perfect pack.
    Cooper Expedition Gear makes a great EDC pack also and I think there's word of them making a backpack soon.

    Well that was a nomination for hill people gear and two seconds so... HPG is the only one for packs and pouches.

    I always wanted an umlindi pack and have yet to get one

    I'm just happy Ellie mentioned Silky saws. They are hands down the best folding saw on the planet. They poop on the Bahco in my opinion. My buddy brought his Bahco and I brought my Silky Ultra Accel and he did a "saw off".. He didn't even need to cut with his and he knew. They're super light, solid, have more than one locking position, multiple teeth options for blades, brightly colored so I can't lose it, and most importantly they cut like a madman.

    This doesn't seem like as big of a deal after your strong endorsement, but do silkys (silkies?) cut on the push and pull? I've never had a saw off, but I've been happy with my bahco.

    They're meant to be pull saws. You can bend any saw on the push cut so I think that's why they intended them to be pulled.

    I used to be an arborist, silky makes the best hand saws I've ever used no doubt about it.

    I agree. I've tried several brands of hand saws, and silky are the absolute fastest cutting saws I've ever handled.

    I've got a pocketboy and a gomboy - they are well worth the money.

    I want to get a Gomboy really bad!
