    People have asked me if I consider myself a good or bad person. The truth of it is, I don't know or care. I have been called both. I like to think I have saved more lives than I have ended. Either way, I can still sleep at night.

    I own a few Hill People Gear packs and kit bags. I was just in Arches and Canyonlands doing some day hiking with my family. I had an Umlindi with out the belt as my day pack and a kit bag with my SI G-26 across my chest. The rangers and other folks on the trail had no idea. They are internal frame packs and are a bit heavy, but bomb proof, but with the best harness in the business. They are are also like Legos where you can mix and match packs and pack pouches. You can also strap all manner of carry items in different configurations such as rifles. The guys running it used to be wilderness fire fighters and they have carried some loads. Their packs are USA made and sewn by First Spear. Their waist belts have pals and you can attach their pouches, or you can add your own and use it as a battle belt. I have had the Eberlestock packs and did not think they were as comfortable and they were heavy!!! Not sure about the logistics of carrying them in the store, but I do know there are companies that do.

    I'll come in as third voice for the Hill People Gear stuff. I have a couple of their chest rigs that I've used in prior life in Search & Rescue and that I've used for backcountry trail running. Their packs are great, I have a Ute and love it. Their stuff is very modular and not super heavy, but is quite durable.

    I'm just reading this for interest.
    And I've come to realize that although all my packs are not junk. They're antiques in many ways. Lowe I've heard ain't what they used to be. Not even sure if the subdivision that made my old pack is still operating. And MEI..Maybe but the 3 day ruck is gone and travel pack ain't made of Ballistic Nylon or heavy cordura.

    ok tribe, we got our first order from WOOX in, containing one of the ROCK 62 knives, the 22" axe and a Wildman Chassis. i must admit i am impressed by all. The knife is reminiscent of a good old original buck, randall or case in quality, heft and overall feel, and is absolutely sharp as fuck, so if you decide to get one, don't fuck with it, it will cut the shit outta ya.

    the axe is sturdy and lightweight. you don't see too many axe heads on the market these days either that come with a wax shield over the edge, most aren't sharp enough for it this one however, is. the overall feel of it makes me want to go out back and start swingin, but its not mine.

    the stock is for swamp thing and its an absolute beauty. he's in the middle of slow rust blueing the barreled action right now, but as soon as he's done with that he's going to post up pictures.

    if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask, me or paul will be happy to answer whatevers on your mind
