Today, the line of tactical clothing in America is starting to go towards the low profile and incognito direction. This is apparent by the fact that some of the big names in tactical clothing such as Vertx and 5.11 have recently started selling jeans with the idea of remaining incognito. However, Helikon-Tex is putting their own spin on the incognito look. However, I think this pant offers alot to the end user that I have yet to see in other pants in this class.
I do not use outside the waistband holsters with the greatest regularity, but I do find them to be necessary in some applications here in Alaska. Winter time here can allow the user to wear an OWB holster while also wearing a cover garment like a jacket to effectively conceal the firearm. However, even if you are able to wear alot of layers, your holster should still maintain a low profile, reasonable retention, and be capable of being used continuously in practice without compromising the functionality. The question is whether this $45 hybrid holster is up to task for being a good belt holster option according to the requirements I have laid out.
Roughly a year ago, I bought a pair of those "Indestructible shoes" and was less than impressed. It came time to get new footwear for my daily footwork. Of course I could have selected some cheap shoes from Fred Meyer or Walmart, but I know I need more durability and support. My daily activity is quite rough compared to most. I do alot of walking and running outdoors. I need footwear that is versatile and durable. However, it is also important for it to be versatile for the seasons such as rain and cold. This means I need the shoes or boot to be waterproof. After much consideration, I decided to go with a product that is not so mainstream. The HQ ISSUE Canyon Tactical Hiking Boot was a great price and seemed to have the features that made it worth a try.
With the Fall season reaching it's prime and October being right around the corner, Alaska is about to dive right into Winter. This will entail us getting snow, very little light, and generally undesirable living conditions. With this seasonal change, it is time for me to think a little bit about my daily carry system in terms of weapons, clothing, etc. I will run you through my method for selecting the firearm I use and why.
