Before we had Google Maps, we had a sky full of stars and the sun to guide our way. Humans have an innate ability to navigate; a natural sense of direction. We create visual maps of an area in our brains, and using many different cues and landmarks, we are able to orient ourselves. However, without practicing navigation, you can lose the art of finding yourself.

Recently, I discovered a product that has finally matured to point that it is worthy of cracking open your wallet and parting with a few hard-earned greenbacks. Portable solar panels and battery packs, have finally progressed to level of durability, size, and most importantly, longevity that make them a must-have item. The SunJack 14W +8000mAh Battery is a product that should be in every household, car, backpack… you name it. Don’t get too hung up on the name. The engineers at SunJack spent their time where it would do you the most good—engineering, not marketing.
Spring is almost here and that means it is time for Severe Weather Preparedness Week March 5-11. Preparedness is a 24-7/365 project. With Severe Weather Preparedness Week upon us, we refreshed last year’s post to again remind you to prep for Mother Nature’s worst.
Perhaps the hottest new product to come out of the 2017 SHOT Show will not be a gun or new bullet. While at a large press lunch with more than a dozen vendors, Crossbreed Holsters was causing a stir. My first thought was, “All that for another new holster?” Something wasn’t right. Finally, after my curiosity got the best of me, I set a bee line for the front. After elbowing my way to the front of the line, I learned the reason for the commotion.
Crossbreed branched out with a new product launch—The Resistor. The Resistor is part of the ARK Protector Series. Essentially, it is protects your stuff from the elements. No big deal right? Well it is also a shield from one of the biggest and most likely global threats—Electromagnetic pulse. I was a bit skeptical, but it kept getting better. The material used to make the ARK Resistor bag is the same as is used to protect missile guidance systems for U.S. Military weapon systems. The Shooter’s Log will be reviewing The Resistor ARK in future. For now, here is the full release from Crossbreed.
ARK RESISTER BAG
The Ark Resister Bag by CrossBreed offers superior electronics protection that significantly exceeds all military requirements for EMP and static discharge resistance including the stringent standards of MIL-PRF-81705. Previously available only to the military to protect high value guided weapon systems, the Ark Resister Bag is now available exclusively through CrossBreed. Reusable by design with 20 years of proven field use, the Resister Bag can also be used to line a case and serve as a Faraday Cage for sensitive and valuable electronic devices. When heat sealed, the Resister Bag is also waterproof, dustproof, corrosion, and puncture resistant.
From the time I was 6 or 7 years old, I’ve carried a slingshot. Very quickly, I became not only proficient, but the bane of much of the small game available in and around my rural subdivision. With 3/8-inch ball bearing ammo, I could regularly bring home a rabbit or squirrel to be cleaned and eaten.
In order to make the amount of time I spend in and around my truck more comfortable, I keep a few items

When considering what survival gear to purchase, you must feel confident the products are going to work reliably. A $30, or even a $5, small pocketknife is fine for EDC, but when your life depends on it, you don’t want to end up holding on to nothing but a broken knife and broken hopes.
