  • Official: Diesel's Gear Thread

    Ok folks! I get asked over and over in the forums, PM's, and emails for gear advice, info, what I use and prefer etc.

    I've decided to finally reveal and go over some of my gear.

    I have alot of gear in many different locations so this is going to be a little tough but I'm going to work with what I have here which is probably less an 1/3 of my gear. Yes I'm a certified GEAR WHORE, and wouldn't go to meetings for it even if they had them ;)

    Please don't hold any of my gear against me!

    I will post pics first then go back through and edit in any makes and models and info I think you might want etc.

    Feel free to comment or ask questions etc

    Note: You'll see a wide variety of gear. Some I use daily, some Is specifically for leisure camping & hiking, some for Ditch Kit, GHB, BOB, INCH, and some I just thought was plain cool :)

                    Some how I missed this thread. I'm digging that med bag. I've been looking for one about that size myself and saw that same bag this passed weekend at the surplus store. Just wasn't sure how it would carry. Can you give us a little info on fit and carry as well as how it holds up? I've already gone threw 3 bags for my med kit and just can't seem to get the right one that fits all my needs for a med bag.

                        I don't remember where I got it nor does it have a name on it. It's a pretty good little day pack though. It may have been called a 3 day assault pack although it's a tad small for that. My main med pack is a STOMP II
