REVIEW – OnePlanet Tasman Hybrid Travel Pack

ITEM: Tasman Hybrid Travel Pack

MANUFACTURER: OnePlanet

A hybrid travel pack that is designed to be used for adventure trekking in the wilderness, or backpacking (dare I say even “glamping”) through the urban jungle.

I’ve been a wee bit naughty everyone.

I shall put myself in the pain machine to make up for it.

 

They boys at ATS have some great news about the further development of their Cobra Assault pack.

REVIEW NOTES:

The Marker Panel, Individual, Lightweight has been graciously provided by Battle Systems LLC. Whilst I have received a small financial donation towards the upkeep of this website, this review is like any with supplied equipment, in that I have conducted the review with the proviso that I will be painfully honest in my assessment of this item.

Unlike most of my reviews of supplied equipment, this item won’t be returned to the supplier. It will be going straight into my pack.

REVIEW – Mystery Ranch IFAK

ITEM:      IFAK Pouch

MANUFACTURER:      Mystery Ranch

DESCRIPTION:

A self-contained IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit) pouch to be worn on the man for immediate emergency use. Generally loaded with medical supplies to deal with immediate trauma such as gunshot, blast or breathing problems caused by those anti-social interactions between people we has seen so much coverage on the television in the last few years. I know for some of the readership however, that they haven’t been watching the television too much, they’ve been creating or living in the very news stories the rest of us have been watching.
