Leatherman Rebar with case set on a rock

Review: Leatherman Sidekick and Rebar

I have been a fan of Leatherman Multi-Tools since Tim Leatherman’s original multi-tool. That original tool was used so hard, it actually had to be replaced. Sure, I could have sent it back to Leatherman under their 25-year warranty, however karma prevailed and I happily slapped down another $40 for replacement. Over the years, I have purchased another dozen Leathermans and seem to have one stashed in every vehicle, pack, and tool drawer around the house.

Review: BLACKHAWK! Tac-Life Softshell Jacket

Recently, BLACKHAWK! released a new and updated collection of holsters, clothes and accessories. I was able to get my hands on the Tac-Life Softshell jacket just prior to it being “officially” available to the public. The mid-summer heat of the Carolinas was not the most ideal climate to test even the lightest weight jacket.

Thankfully, some types of hunting (Doves) are simpler than others.
