    I guess this counts as pretty old school...

    It’s either in my pocket or in the truck console everyday.

    This is my old faithful. I use it for work with atudent groups splitting dry pine for fires. It’s been tested by a couple of other instructors, left out in the weather, lost outdoors for a couple of months, still going strong!
    Just wish I’d etched the RAT logo

    The Laserna pack? I could get pics, probably not good pics though. I'm not much of a photographer....

    I have one, Shane. I'll take some pics.

    I also have some other old stuff too (the stuff in this thread is new!).

    Standby....

    These pictures bring up a lot of old memories.

    Back in my black ops days, I was spending a lot of time down in Colombia. This was back before Colombia had become the boring and benign tourism destination it is today. Back then, you could still hear the occasional car bomb, and only the brave drank their cafecito out on the sidewalk. Everyone knew someone currently being held by the FARC, ELN or AUC, and the paper reported yesterday's battles next to the soccer scores.

    Jeff came down to do some work with me and brought me the then-new RAT-7 in D2. He's got some pictures of me wearing it that probably won't ever be posted here, but those were the days.

    Related: There was a guy who operated in a nondescript house in an alley not far from the U.S. Embassy. You had to know someone to get in but once inside, you never knew who you would see in there. SEALs, CIA, Special Forces, or even the real spooky guys. Back then, everyone went to get their gear made by this guy. He could make anything. He would have sent the average OSHA Inspector and trademark enforcement officer into complete apoplexy, but the gear was solid.

    However, being Latin America and all, the timeliness was not always there. Actually, it was virtually never there. But the gear was good. And cheap. That's where that Laserna pack pictured above was made.
