When it comes to purifying water, you always want to ensure your method is removing all the contaminants. Today on Gear Tasting, Bryan offers his thoughts on the differences between mechanical and chemical filtration, as well as what all those things are you’re removing from the water.
Bryan also answers some Questions Over Coffee, including his “tactical” sun glass preference, thoughts on first aid kits for the home and his favorite cigars.
I’ll preface this article, by saying that I really like Spyderco and what they do. I’m also a big fan of Marcin Slysz, the talented knife maker who’s the designer of the Spyderco SpydieChef. He’s a humble guy living in the South of Poland and his shop must be one of the simplest professional knife making shops I’ve ever seen (considering he’s been professionally making knives for a living for about a decade now).
I’m also a sucker for titanium frame lock folders, so you can easily guess my reaction when I received my SpydieChef, I fell in love instantly. However, despite my immediate love, I decided to wait and use it for awhile before writing a proper reality-based user review. Now after more than six months, I’m ready to share my thoughts, so grab your coffee and enjoy the review.
Whether it’s a firearms training class, adventure race or other gear-related activity, chances are there will be a packing list. While your packing list might be all inclusive, this week on Gear Tasting Radio, we discuss going beyond the list with a core group of items we’ll have on us no matter what.
In addition to some must-bring items, Bryan, Jordan and Rob discuss some of the methodology they apply to both events and packing lists.
The world is a dangerous place and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. Hordes of displaced refugees are a common sight these days in the media. Witnessing refugee movement firsthand convinced me beyond any doubt that I never want to become one of those desperate individuals, totally dependent upon the generosity and charity of others for survival.
