Review: ICS Galil ARM ICS-91

With modern rifle models changing faster than clean underwear, it’s hard to keep up with the latest “cool guy” gun. “Block II” this, and “Mk18” that; it can be a bit daunting to decipher at times (and sounds like a foreign language, too). Read More »

Blue Force Gear PLATEminus

In early 2012, Arc’Teryx introduced a new gray color optimized for urban and industrial margins called Urban Wolf. The theory behind it is that as light fades, black begins to stand out in the concrete jungle.

Review: ESS Profile Turbofan Goggle
