Hydro Flask

Hydro Flask

Gear Rating: 9

Price: $22.29

Bug Out Recommended: Yes

Pros:

This flask keeps your drinks cold or hot for a long time and its extremely light weight,  which is great if you have to pack a lot of gear and want to keep your pack as light as possible.  I put this hydro flask in the fridge over night with room temperature water, by the morning the water had only lowered by a degree or two.  This just shows how effective the insulation is on this water bottle. If your looking to carry water and maintain it’s temperature, then this flask is for you.

Cons:

The outside of the flask can get really hot when it’s left in the sun, the water is cold but the flask is hot.  This can be a problem if you don’t know this and pick it up after leaving  it on the outside of your pack while hiking or in the sun while at camp.  This issue is easily overlooked as the water will still be ice cold when you drink it and that’s the overall purpose.

The outside of the flask is also easily dented.  I had mine for one month and it has 3 dents in it already, after being carried to and from my office job in a 5.11 back pack.  So if your hiking and it drops be ready for a few dents or worse….Maybe we should do a hydro flask challenge and drop it to see at what point it will break?  If you want us to do this tell us on social media or our forum!

Final Thoughts:

A water bottle, is a water bottle, is a water bottle, but this one just steps it up a notch!  You can buy other water bottles for less money and it will carry your water and keep you hydrated all the same.  But if your able to filter ice cold stream water on a hike and keep it cold for the rest of the day that’s a bonus.  We all know that room temperature water is easier on the body, but damn it if cold water doesn’t hit the spot on a hot day.  On the reverse side, if your in bad weather and need to move camps you could make some tea and carry it with you for a mid-hike “warm up” to keep spirits high!

Ka-Bar TDI Law Enforcement EDC Knife

Ka-Bar TDI Law Enforcement EDC Knife

Gear Rating: 10

Price: $41

Pros:

This knife is lightweight and fits close to the body so it’s great for concealment. The holster that it comes with is tough and sturdy. When the knife clicks in you feel safe knowing that it won’t fall out. This is important as you don’t want your last chance knife falling out when in an altercation. The knife comes out of the box sharp and good to go. The handle fits nicely in my hand and allows for a solid grip.

Cons:

The only con about this knife is that depending on where you live, you might not be able to carry it as a concealed
weapon. Know your local laws before carrying this knife.

Final Thoughts:

Please note that my purchase came with the belt clip holster so it was $41, you can buy the knife by it’s self, but I would recommend getting the holster with it. If you are serious about protection and self defense this is a great knife to carry. I carry it on the opposite side of my EDC knife or my concealed firearm. That way if someone is going for my weapon I can access this knife with my other hand when possible. For the price this is a solid addition to your EDC knives.
