Seasons Greetings – 2016

It’s been pretty busy around here, so let me take this opportunity to wish all of you, our readers, followers and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Please be safe whilst enjoying the time with family, after all it’s not Christmas until the riot squad is attending, after you’ve told the in-laws what you really think of them whilst intox.


For those if you on duty, please watch your flanks and be safe – I worry otherwise.


It’s been a big year around here.

Professionally, it’s been a bit lack luster.

Personally it’s been hectic with the addition of another child to our family.


There’s some really exciting thing’s happening with Packs and Beyond though.

We’re hoping to add and develop another guest reviewer.

A trip report will be forthcoming about a visit to a company, that is starting to highlight our position as industry professionals.

There will be several trip reports as a side benefit of consulting work carried out by Packs and Beyond. SHOT Show in Las Vegas will be the first trip.


So 2017 is starting to look really promising.

I’m really looking forward to all of you joining us for the journey.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas Wishes – 2014

It’s been a busy time in this lead-up to the Festive Season.

Please let me take this opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


Enjoy the time off with family and loved ones.

Should you be on duty: walking the beat, or sitting in the truck waiting for the call-out, or sitting in some Godforsaken place far from home – know that you will be in my family’s thoughts and prayers.

Please stay safe, and keep an eye on each other in these difficult times.


I’m looking forward to more of the same, hopefully….

Peace and goodwill to you all.

Packs and Beyond is having a Garage Sale!

As the title suggests, I have waaaaaay too much crap piling up in my man-cave. Let my excess fill your deficiency of high end kit! Something for everyone!

Help me pay some bills, buy Christmas presents so my family will love me again and fund the setting up of a new rifle.

INDUSTRY NEWS – Oneiros Valley

Our friends at Oneiros Valley have announced some great news. Their Load Lifting Panel, which I’ve reviewed previously (see HERE) is now moving to production. They also have just given me a sneak peek of a larger Lumbar Pad for those who find the lumbar cushion on the Mystery Ranch too small, or wish better comfort with combat armour.
There are plans afoot for me to review the new Lumbar Pad in the new future, so keep watching this space.

Oneiros Valley are now offering a chance to win your own LLP and Lumbar Pad.
It’s easy to enter, all you have to do is go to their Facebook page and “Like” them.

SHOT Show 2013 – the Lead Up

I’m packing my bags getting ready to attend the largest trade show in the world for the outdoor and shooting sports again.

Look forward to catching up with old American and international friends, and making new ones.


Is there anything in particular (products or company’s) that you mob would like me to look at and find out more about?
