The @bushnell_official BackTrack Mini is clearly l The @bushnell_official BackTrack Mini is clearly lined up as a competitor to the popular Garmin Foretrex 601 mini GPS unit, offering similar size, functionality, and reliable GPS/GLONASS/Galileo connectivity. However, at a $100 MSRP, it's half the price of the Garmin product. This caught our attention. Check out the full scoop on OFFGRIDweb.com.

If you put together a trauma medical kit or individual first aid kit (IFAK) five to seven years ago, you may need to update your gear. Whether you started with a simple first aid kit or a full 5.11 Tactical ALS/ELS medical bag, you should take the time now to review its contents. On OFFGRID web, we look at what contents you should focus on and why you should replace certain items. ...

Acid etching makes use of a chemical reaction between an acidic etchant solution and the steel of your blade. There are many variables here, such as the type of steel used, the type of acid applied, and the amount of time the blade is treated. Etching acids can range from powerful hydrochloric or sulfuric acid to much weaker acids — even household vinegar, citrus fruit, or mustard can be used effectively.

If you're looking to get into the world of night vision gear, brace yourself, because it can get expensive fast. However, we're glad to see that the costly nature of NV gear has been gradually diminishing thanks to new products from smaller companies such as Phantom Hill. The Phantom Hill CTF-1, which we previously reviewed, includes an infrared laser, IR illuminator, and white light in a single housing for $800 — that's relatively inexpensive compared to existing options like the DBAL or ATPIAL-C.

From OFFGRID staff @pmccarthy10:
My @palmettostatearmoryofficial GF3 AK has held up to everything I’ve thrown at it so far, including a @haleystrategicofficial 3-day D5 class, but the triangle stock and foregrip position always felt too short for me.

So, I recently installed a @vltorweaponsystems CMRD full-length M-LOK handguard and @jmaccustoms ST-6 stock adapter to fine-tune the length of pull and support hand position.

Other new parts include a JMac Customs HRD Extended hand stop, @b5systems rail covers and Bravo stock, @arisakadefense 300 Series flashlight and in-line mount, @holosunoptics 510C on an @americandefensemfg lower-third QD mount, and an @xtechtactical MAG47 from @gunmagwarehouse.

Folding knives are great for many everyday tasks, but a fixed blade will hold up to heavy-duty uses such as batoning wood. @sogknives has announced a new combat knife called the Recondo FX that's designed to withstand these uses in the hands of armed professionals and prepared citizens.

Whether you're a firm adherent of the “gray man” life or just someone who wants to avoid raising the eyebrows of coworkers at a corporate desk job, it's a good idea to select gear that blends into your surrounding environment. In urban and suburban settings, this means that camo-colored ballistic nylon gear is usually a no-go. We've been fans of the @vertx_official Gamut line of backpacks for many years, since they offer a nice balance of functionality and concealment, so we were interested to learn that the company is launching another line of even more urban-friendly backpack designs called the Vertx Ardennes Collection.
