1. 3M Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator – 13% Off
Remodelling some condo’s recently and was getting bothered using disposable paper nose filters. My protective eyewear kept getting foggy and breathing was becoming a bother. Got this 3M Respirator and it’s a welcome addtion to my tool bag.
Sealing is excellent and provides normal breathing motion. Working with drywall dust the whole day using this 3M product is not a concern. The straps are designed with comfort and stay comfortably in place.
Proper filter (for dusty conditions) to purchase is the 3M 2091 P100 Particulate Filter. – RottBoy
2. Bushnell Banner Dusk & Dawn Multi-X Reticle Riflescope with 3.3-Inch Eye Relief, 3-9X 40mm – 27% Off
Mounted on an Uberti Silver Boy .22 LR lever-action rifle. It’s a little big for the rifle, visually, but the optics are not bad at all and the quality is definitely worth twice the cost of a Simmons or Tasco. Eye relief is perfect for my rifle and all adjustments have a quality feel to them. I used medium profile rings with the factory scope base that came with the rifle and height was perfect for clearing the hammer and rear sight.
Just returned from a 2+ week back country elk bow hunting trip with my TZ-6000. First, I will say that it wasn’t until the last days before my trip that I broke down and decided to leave my old pack home and try the Tenzing pack. I found a great price on Amazon and CHEAP next day shipping option which I took advantage of. From the beginning, the TZ-6000 was impressive – great construction, well-thought out features, great pocket size and placement, etc. In the field, the TZ-6000 was AWESOME. Several features really shined:
- The integral rain cover. It rained 2 solid days. My companions were fussing with garbage bags in an attempt to keep their stuff dry. Not me, I just deployed the rain cover stowed in the bottom of the pack and moved on.
- The integral bow/gun carrier. I normally don’t use these things because, in my experience, I seem to see more game when my weapon is lashed to my pack and inaccessible. I did use it this trip as we did lots of hiking in/out of areas at night, so this feature worked great.
- The detachable day pack. On the TZ-6000, the top cover/pocket is removable and has a stowed waist belt enabling you to use the cover as a fanny pack to carry stuff out of camp for day-hunts. GREAT feature. Used it everyday.
- Sleeping bag compartment in the bottom of the pack. My Marmot bag fit perfectly in to the bag compartment. It was great to have my sleeping bag inside the pack.
- Internal frame. I’ve always used external frame packs for these types of trips and wasn’t sure how it would work out. I liked it. Very quiet. As for load carrying ability, I carried more weight than my companions and never had an issue.
Unfortunately, I didn’t fill my tag on this trip, so I cant comment on the pack’s ability to un-zip and create a pocket to pack game out. Given the apparent engineering and features that went in to this pack, I am sure it works great. Hopefully, I will have an opportunity to test this feature soon!
Love this pack. I am going to buy a second one for my son for next year’s trip. – BonanzaMan
5. Allen Cottonwood Fishing Rod & Gear Bag – 19% Off
Love this bag. Can carry both my fly rods and all my gear in one bag. Perfect for any out of town trips.
Been using this case 3 days a week. Every week since I got it for Christmas. Not a single issue. It hauls 2 9′ 4 piece rods. 1 8′ 4piece orvis fly/spin combo. 4 fly reels 2 extra spools. 1 spin reel. 3 fly boxes. Tools, leaders, tippet spools, strike indicators, lanyard, gloves, bait and conventional lures with no problems. – Padre
Just what I was looking for, a scope for hunting. I have several Vortex Viper scopes and am pleased with all of them. Although this is not a FFP scope I am very pleased. For me, having capped turrets can be an advantage when packing and making long stalks in open country. The optics are the clearest I own and the HSR-4 is ideal if you are a MOA fan. – Captkz
7. GreenCity 3-Day Expandable Tactical Backpack – Special Savings
This is a high quality pack. My son will be using it for school. Very roomy, well made and the fact that it is expandable is wonderful for the days that he wears a coat to school, but doesn’t need it when he comes home. He was constantly forgetting coats, boots, gym clothes, lunch box on the bus after school because it didn’t all fit in standard school backpacks along with folders and books. This will work wonderfully! – Stacey
8. Self-Defense Tasers (various manufacturers) – Special Savings
Outstanding performance and rigidity from a quality brand! I use it on my duty belt with the included TekLok attachment. Easy to mount for left or right hand user, easy to adjust passive retention. The retention is perfect and holds through running, training, fighting etc yet allows for a smooth quick draw when needed. – JasonCarbuckle (on the Blade-Tech Kydex Outside-The-Waistband Holster for TASER Pulse
9. Bear Archery BR33 Hybrid Cam Compound Bow – 19% Off
I’ve had this bow for a couple months. I’ve changed out the sight and the whisker biscuit to a QAD HDX rest and a Trophy Ridge 5 Pin fixed sight . The whisker biscuit was fine but the sight was really cheap plastic. The release Loop was wearing through after a couple hundred arrows and my peep sight keeped sliding out of adjustment it looks like they used sewing thread to hold it in place. I took it to Sportsman’s Warehouse and had him secure the peep sight and tie a better quality release Loop for under 15 bucks. I’m definitely going to be holding on to this bow for some years to come. This bow has a smooth draw and I’m able to group very well with it. The bow is worth it alone without the accessories. – Casey MC
10. Steiner Optics P4Xi 4-16x56mm SCR Scope x 40mm – 25% Off
No customer reviews at press time. However, our resident firearms expert says a lot of good things about Steiner Optics.
11. Camping & Hiking Essentials – Up to 30% Off
I ordered this just because I’m an impulse buyer, but I must say, it was delicious! I’m former military and have my favorite MREs, but this product takes the cake. I opened the lasagna package and it smelled amazing in the dry state. After I added the water and waited the aroma was even better. In a nutshell, I am buying a few more buckets to have on standby. I have tried WISE and others and they tasted horrible. I still prefer my trusty MRE in a pinch because of what is in the MRE package can’t be beat. But when it comes to taste Mountain House is right up there with some of the better tasting MRE packages. – Dan M. (Mountain House…Just In Case product)
12. Gerber Products – Up to 15% Off
I don’t really care whose name is on this fire striker. I bought it because I had a friend who had one and it worked great. Mine that I bought does too. I did have the strange desire to drink my own pee after using though which I found odd, but I was warm by the fire it created. I have about a dozen little strikers and ferro rods and strikers from different makers. This one works the best as a pair. I like the way it seals together to keep both safe and together. Plus it comes with little whistle which is handy if needed i guess. Most importantly it throws big solid sparks and will help you get a fire going. You can even pack it with a small amount of cotton or dry tinder to carry with you. -M FN K (Bear Grylls Fire Starter product)
13. LuminAID Solar Lanterns and Phone Chargers – Up to 40% Off
Great product. Bought it for use during emergencies/power outages, but have been using it on the patio table to light up dinner. Very light weight and packable, if not a bit delicate for roughing it – feels similar to inflatable pool toys, but treat it with care in transit and it’s a great resource – renewable light and power. I’ve been recommending it to friends and family. – Jaime
14. Streamlight Flashlights – Various Savings
This is like my 6th 7th Streamlight product. Keep coming back because they are great. Great build quality as expected. Nice extremely bright center beam mixed with a wide bright flood light just like the other ProTacs. Streamlight has finally adopted rechargable 18650 batteries with this ProTac model. Nice they finally added a medium power setting. That was my only complaint about the ProTac line. EXTREMELY bright or dimmer than a candle settings. Now that’s not a problem anymore. Just about the same size as the older 750 lumen ProTac model. This particular model number is only different with the packaging with the “newer” model that this one comes in a blister package. The newer model coming in a box. Save a few dollars for packaging that you’ll most likely throw out anyways.
Edit June 29; I purchased the two USB rechargable Streamlight branded 18650s for my light. They work great and a absolute necessary accessory. Now don’t have to worry about spending one more dollar towards CR123 batteries and not worried to use my flashlight. – David (Streamlight 88065 Pro Tac HL-X 1,000 Lumen Professional Tactical Flashlight.
15. Intex Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump, Bed Height 22″, Queen – Save 28%
Pretty awesome inflatable bed. Electric pump fills quickly and relatively quietly. The higher profile makes it easy to get in and out of without having to get on the ground. It is firm enough to sit on, like a regular bed.
Had guests spend a week on it, one thought it was perfect, the other thought it a bit too firm. Since the inflation is adjustable, I didn’t deduct for that, though I might throw a mattress topper on it next time.
Deflated just as easily and only took a few minutes to fold up and put away. Fit right back into box, though it comes with a carrying bag.
Queen sized mattress took queen sized sheets a duvet perfectly. I am really pleased with this purchase.
Directions state to inflate a day or two before use so that the mattress can stretch, be topped on, and stretch again. I got it up and filled 24 hours before use and did have to top it off before putting sheets on and again after the first night of use. – Kiris
