EDC Gear from EDC Depot.com

May 26, 2009

We had a chance to review some EDC gear from the EDC Depot.com online store. The items arrived in about two days, were packaged well and nothing was damaged. No extra packaging to throw away either. And a FREE spy capsule (pill fob) !!!

We received a TOPs Pocket Size Survival Saw and a Cord Lock Light made by Black Crater. I opened the box and set out threw contents for this photo, and then there was a blur of hands and I had to wait a while to get the items back for more photos.

EDC = Every Day Carry

We had a chance to review some EDC gear from the EDC Depot.com online store. The items arrived in about two days, were packaged well and nothing was damaged. No extra packaging and a FREE spy capsule (pill fob). We received a TOPs Pocket Size Survival Saw and a Cord Lock Light made by Black Crater. I opened the box and set out threw contents for this photo, and then there was a blur of hands and I had to wait a while to get the items back for more photos. Well I got most of it back, the keyring pill container was lost to one of our editors who had forgotten his pills the day before, and his two pills fit perfectly inside. I managed to get a few photographs, but we will have to wait a while to hear how it works out for him. He does not like a large keyring... so we will see. The light still worked on the Cord Lock Light after everyone had played with it for a while before I got to see it, which was it is first test. It had been dropped a few times and thrown around before I was able to take a look at it, and it is no worse for wear. First off, it is a decent cord lock. It is strong and has a large opening for the cord, so it will easily allow two strands of 550 cord (my cord of choice) The rubber operation button is solid and seems to be waterproof. The bottom of the unit is a large black rubber cap that offers access to the two CR1220 batteries. I suspect this light will be handy in more than a few roles. Obviously as a jacket cord lock it's a perfect option so you always have a light. But on a first aid kit zipper, or tied to a compass, or even on a pocket tool or knife sheath. The Cord Lock Light has three modes of operation that are easy to use; first click is low light, second click of the button switches to bright light mode and the third click of the same button turns on blinking mode. The Cord Lock Light blink mode is designed for emergency signaling, it is a slow regular blink, a little faster than a car turn signal, but much slower than a strobe found on some emergency lights. The TOPs Pocket Size Survival Saw is a four inch saw blade with a sturdy kydex sheath that folds over to a handle like a pocket knife. The TOPs Pocket Size Survival Saw is 4-1/2 inches closed and 7 inches opened. The TOPs Saw uses a rivet connecting the blade to the handle

Wide Mouth Nalgene Bottle

May 22, 2009
These durable bottles have been popular with outdoor enthusiasts for years. The wide mouth works great for mixing powdered drinks and adding ice cubes. Strong transparent plastic allows the contents to be seen at any time, so how full, and what is inside are always apparent. These containers work very well with water pumps and filters too. Some small filters can fit inside one of these Wide Mouth Nalgene Bottles. First aid kits and survival kits have also been kept clean and watertight inside containers like these. We have used these types of bottle to store, mix and pour pancake batter on camping trips. A 32 ounce (one quart) bottle like this one costs less than $10 and can be re-used many times and can last for years even with daily use. Most gear manufactures make pouches and pockets of larger bags to hold the standard size Wide Mouth Nalgene Bottle

Maxpedition JUMBO Versipack 45 day Review

May 22, 2009

I had the opportunity to use the Maxpedition over the shoulder bag for just over 45 days. Although I dont have a daily outdoors life, I was able to put it to the test in many ways. I am not a stereotypical female who loves to carry a purse. My everyday and only purse is a 6x6x2 Dooney & Bourke. I carry a wallet and keys. I wasn’t sure what I was gonna do with the Maxpedition when I first saw it. It reminded me of my sister who carries, what I like to call luggage, for a purse. I started carrying it everyday.

I started with my everyday purse and a make up bag (that I do not carry on a regular basis) stuffed inside. I started finding things that I needed to carry,antibacterial hand sanitizer tube,hand lotion, chap stick, a small brush, small flash light, cigarettes, lighter, sunglasses, digital camera, mints, water bottle, snacks, mini lint roller, toothbrush, tooth paste, mouth wash, floss. The Maxpedition became very heavy compared to what I was used to. I felt very dependent on it. I have a security door I go through at work and it would get stuck as I passed through. It gave me a strawberry between my collar bone and neck. It went away after a couple of days. It took some getting used to.

All of the compartments were very useful. I liked the way the shoulder strap adjusted to my size. Depending on what I was carrying and the weight of the bag I could adjust it closer or farther from my center of mass and it would allow for a more comfortable carry. I was able to latch my keys on to the clip provided on the inside of the bag. The color was very easy to blend with work dress code. The material absorbed the sweat from my water bottle. I didnt have a big wet mess. The porous material helped spread and evaporate the water before causing anything to get soaked or ruined on the inside.

I received a few comments from friends and family:

  • Wow that’s awesome! I feel a little intimidated. (coworker)
  • Hey that’s nice! (dad)
  • What the hell is that thing on your waist? (sister)
  • I could use something like that when I go hiking. (friend)
  • Where can I get one of those? (random person at the mall)
  • That does not look very comfortable. (coworker)

The pack came in handy while chaperoning some middle school students to Disneyland. We were able to carry a first aid kit, five 20 oz water bottles, sunblock, hand sanitizer, tissues, cell phone, camera, snacks, wallet, small gifts, maps & itinerary. Something handy I discovered was the clip strap also adjusts so the pack can be closed even with odd shaped items like rolled up posters inside. All of these things were secure in the bag while we enjoyed ourselves on all of the theme rides. It was easy to manage getting in and out of. The netted pockets inside allowed me to see what I was looking for instead of a hit or miss game.

For an everyday use pack I would go with something smaller. I think it would work perfect for hiking, fishing or hunting.

If I had to have something changed, I would make the compartment on the top outside a littler bigger so I could get my glasses out easier. Overall I felt the Maxpedition pack was very handy.
