Whether it’s a backpack, messenger bag or Indiana Jones satchel, something carries your gear when you’re out and about. On this episode of Gear Tasting Radio, Bryan and Rob continue their EDC discussion with Level 2, or bags and packs.
In addition to highlighting some of their favorite bags, they also walk through what they carry on a daily basis and some of the planning they put into their EDC bags.
I’m an avid reader and am always looking for the next book to draw me in, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction. Lately, I’ve been delving into a lot of technical publications, like manuals and how-to guides and I jumped at the chance when Bryan offered to let me read the Blue Jacket’s Manual he was issued in the Navy.

At ITS, we’ve always been vocal about the need to carry medical gear and seek out the right training for it. Whether you’re a Law Enforcement Officer, Military member or just a prepared civilian, having the right gear and training to use that gear could save lives. Today, we’d like to highlight a great campaign by the Department of Homeland Security on how to “Stop the Bleed.”
As they highlight in the campaign, a person with an injury can die from blood loss within five minutes and no matter how fast emergency response teams are, bystanders will always be the first on the scene. The campaign focuses on three simple steps that bystanders can take to control and reduce an injured person’s bleeding.
When choosing binoculars, higher numbers like 8×70 are always better, right? That might not always be the case, as Bryan explains today on Gear Tasting. He also walks through anti-reflective devices and a hack he found for spotting scopes.
In addition to the bino talk, Bryan answers a Question Over Coffee on what items to consider for self defense when traveling overseas or somewhere that traditional weapons may not be allowed.
