Thanks for the vid, great stuff. Those birds hit hard in the last ten feet, dropped like rocks, really easy to see why a tail section might get clipped on a wall regardless of power loss due to the enclosed walls, incredible.


Wonder why one Blackhawk only had four crew according to credits, space for rescued?


Joint mission between Delta and SEALS? There are mention of both, seems inconsistent.

Keep them coming!

Dammit Eric, don't mention that there was a last item in your dime bag and not post it, no one like a kit-tease. Maybe a clue? Is it pictured (doesn't look like it unless its the metal strip)? Its obv, an exfil kit so what else is getting you out? You are killing me here.

You can make a twisted pair rope out of the duct twisted into strands.


Not survival, but your inner 11 year old wants you to make a duct tape wallet, I can hear him, oh wait that's mine.


You've heard it hear first though, Gaffer's tape is the new hot item, more cloth like and easier to tear.


"Gaffer tape generally costs 3 to 4 times the amount of a roll of duct tape of equivalent length; this is because it is manufactured in much smaller volumes and demanded with a specification that makes it easy to tear and to remove cleanly."

I'm calling shenanigins. This Guy Cramer is doing YouTube interviews about his proprietary super secret squirrel technology? If it were worth a damn he sure as hell wouldn't be, I think its just a drum up for the rest of his products. Watch video below...

So if this cloak is projecting the wall behind the woman (1:23) the light bouncing off the wall toward the camera would have to be captured by a cloak behind her, its just getting absorbed into her backside (heh). and so wouldn't be known about by the cloak in front of her. She'd have to be wrapped in it for the light to bend around. Same goes for the man in the grass with the cloak above him (1:42). There is no light getting to the grass he is under so it isn't illuminated, the grass displayed above the cloak where is body is would be dark if it was the true patch of grass. And then look out Jesse Ventura there's the Predator (1:47) what the fuck is he doing back planetside? The figure standing displays a totally different effect that doesn't look anything like the cloaks.

If they cloaked a UAV at a minimum the propulsion exhaust cannot be absorbed and would thus be exposed so a total wrap couldn't be possible. So some shadow, visual and heat signature somewhere would be displayed.

Shenanigins, come on loadoutroom.

So your cleaning the cut, then holding it together and putting a drop or two along the 'seam' and holding until dry? 

Flea, bass player from the Chilli Peppers covers finger blisters with it to keep the funk going. Wonder if it would do anything for foot blisters. Cover it with glue and keep marching?

Life hack from your 'ol uncle McPosterdoor... if you already have a bladder but like the pressurized idea try blowing air into the bladder via the tube while your drinking, bingo. Don't like it? Just flip the badder upside down until you get liquid again. This can help as a pack floatation as well.

Great post, I like that SOG.

How about a flask of over 100 proof booze?(I don't mean now, in the kit). In my experience it can be used as a fire starter, sterilizer, cleaner and a pick me up. Possibly use it for trade at the apoco-fort/oil barge/barter town as well.

You also forgot your bandanna, never forget your bandanna.

Is it your intent to keep these bags in a vehicle? I'm not sure how having a safe for your documents agrees with keeping them in a BOB type setup, there certainly are tradeoffs. Perhaps this bag is meant to help get one back home to their docs and real supplies?

Nice but Bug-a-salt is the xm25, a little too overboard. This is all you need, I have a couple around and its more of a harpoon(SEALs can get with that, right?) no ammo worries, great for dispensing indiscriminate justice upon the insect world. Get it in OD green ;)

Someone on SOFREP pointed me a while back to http://www.elzetta.com/. get a baton sized strobing light with a crenelate edge. That should do the trick. They drive nails with the flashlights in their product videos (doesn't seem like the right tool but, heh).

It seems to be a rocket and not a bullet necessarily. There looks to be red solid propellant and a nozzle in the rear. The front looks like the warhead with a fiber line running to the circuit board. As to why the headline reads 'GPS guided'? My vote is SEA hacking, or author error, yeah probs author error.

You can do a couple things to relieve transmission power, cut down the transmission's need for power by changing the transmission medium (switch EMS frequencies to lower band) or altering the logic deciding when and for how long to send a transmission. Its probably a mix of both. The other question is whether they are getting their power savings from just transmission savings, there is a lot of good work being done on low power 'analog' chips for video processing. All the bits aren't always reliably 1 or 0 but enough of them are for video processing but they are super low power because they don't need to force the binary all the time. The chips wouldn't be good for an ICBM lets say.

@Tango9 Prob saved off sales tax too! But in addition to your Hulu, Netfliz Amazon Prime and maybe HBO GO which all work great through a $100 (one time cost) Roku, or newer streaming TVs/computer, you can get an HD antenna and get all your broadcast (old rabbit ears channels) for free as it is a federal law that they must broadcast HD. You can go get a nice HD antenna and rock all those channels as well but there are a couple options for recording that source.

I thought they had deployed shipping containers with 3D printers and other rapid development matrials to FOB in the 'stan, one created better circuitry that dramatically increased a handheld metal detector's battery life and sent those plans throughout other units.
